Kev’s Daily Take On 11/09/2022

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.

Military Honors

ELEVEN09 DAY honors our veterans with a company that helps veterans and is run by veterans.  Eleven09 helps to assimilate and train vets to enter the corporate workforce.  They also partner with corporations to promote the benefits of hiring those who have loyally served their country. 

Awareness Spotlight shines on…

MICROTIA AWARENESS DAY speaks to around 1 in 9000 children who are born with an ear(s) that are not fully developed.  We are still not sure why this happens but hearing aids, cosmetic bio ears and a lot of support from friends and family will make these special kids fit right in.

Education and Information

WORLD FREEDOM DAY comes to us on the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.  Representing the reunification of a country as well as the fall of communism in that area, we celebrate freedom today – and all that comes with it.

For Fun

GO TO AN ART MUSEUM DAY is self-explanatory.  Visit one of these centers of culture and find your appreciation for art.  We are blessed in St. Louis to have the St. Louis Art Museum which dates back to the 1904 World’s Fair and is free of charge.

On Today’s Menu…

Big Oven

NATIONAL SCRAPPLE DAY celebrates the first pork dish invented in America.  Basically, mush some pork sausage together, hold it together with cornmeal and spices and then fry it up.  Fried pork doesn’t sound too healthy, however, I bet it is tasty.

NATIONAL FRIED CHICKEN SANDWICH DAY invites us to take a big bite out of a delicious sandwich.  The origins of the fried chicken sandwich are somewhat murky, but it seems that the fried, no-spice technique brought over by the Scottish were blended with the spicy, non-fried chicken from Africa.  Find your favorite chicken sandwich (there are a lot to choose from) and enjoy.
