Kev’s Daily Take On 11/12/2022

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.

Awareness Spotlight shines on…

WORLD PNEUMONIA DAY wants us to keep spreading the word about the importance of healthy lungs.  Symptoms are a lot like COVID and can include fever, coughing, shortness of breath, chest pain, diarrhea, body pain and loss of appetite.  If you or someone you know is experiencing these signs, seek medical attention immediately.

Celebrate You with…

CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL DAY is served up nice and hot and looks to comfort more than just our bodies.  Just as chicken soup nourishes our physique, a little meditation or a good book to read, or sharing some chicken soup with a friend is good for our inner being.  Do what you need to take care of your soul, it’s just as important.

Belly up to the Bar

NATIONAL HAPPY HOUR DAY gathers friends and coworkers together for a little relaxation after work.  A good watering hole is just the place to meet, have a few drinks and let the stresses of the day melt away. As always, don’t drink and drive.

On Today’s Menu…

PIZZA WITH THE WORKS EXCEPT ANCHOVIES’ DAY hits the spot – unless you like anchovies.  I never met a slice of pizza I didn’t like – except for ones with anchovies.  So, pile on all the other toppings and enjoy.

FRENCH DIP DAY is one savory sandwich.  Take some thinly sliced roast beef, pile it on a French Roll and dip that into a bowl of au jus.  If things get a little messy – that’s ok – just let that bread and beef soak up as much of the drippings as possible.
