Kev’s Daily Take On 11/08/2022

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands,
One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

A Tip of the Hat Goes to…

WORLD PIANISTS’ DAY brings a round of applause to anyone who can tickle the ivories.  If you have this talent, play a few notes, chords or songs and know that the greats – Mozart, Beethoven, Liberace and Victor Borge are playing right along with you.

Education and Information

ELECTION DAY is upon us.  Amidst all of the voices and opinions clamoring for your vote – it is your vote – listen to your own voice and vote your mind

S.T.E.M/S.T.E.A.M DAY wants to inspire students to dig deep into Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.  Learning these skills will definitely give them a leg up in this world.

For Fun

ABET AND PUNSTERS’ DAY is good for a few laughs, or groans.  Today is the day to regale your audience with dad jokes and silly puns.  I made a pencil with two erasers – it was pointless.  Bad puns – that’s how eye roll.

Belly up to the Bar

HARVEY WALLBANGER DAY celebrates the adult beverage made with vodka, orange juice and Galliano – a spiced liqueur.  Donato “Duke” Antone is credited with its creation and this drink even inspired a Harvey Wallbanger character for a marketing campaign.  Around San Diego, where it was invented, people were known to write in “Harvey Wallbanger” for their candidates at election time.

On Today’s Menu…

CAPPUCCINO DAY has the Capuchin monks to thank for its existence.  They discovered that espresso, hot milk and steamed milk foam create not only a delicious beverage, but with a little creativity, a veritable work of art.  How do they draw those cute little images in the foam?
