Kev’s Daily Take On 11/13/2022

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…


ORPHAN SUNDAY raises awareness for the world’s 153 million orphans. That’s enough of a population to make up the 10th largest country.  Most of these kids will never get adopted, so the need for support, resources and raising awareness is great.

WORLD KINDNESS DAY can be contagious.  The Bible exhorts us to be kind to one another, tenderhearted… It isn’t easy, especially if you are dealing with your own issues, but the payoff of that warm feeling, as well as it spreading to others. is priceless.

For Fun


SADIE HAWKINS DAY turns the tables as the gals do the chasing.  While it is not quite the social faux paus it once was, it is still fun for a little role reversal.  The idea came from the comic strip Lil Abner and has been the inspiration for many a school dance.


SYMPHONIC METAL DAY combines the orchestrated sounds of a symphony with operatic singing and a heavy metal vibe.  Originating in Scandinavia and the Netherlands, it is a very unique sound.

INTERNATIONAL TONGUE TWISTER DAY prepares our tongues for a workout.  Here a couple for you to try repeating 3 times 1) Toy boat 2) Which wristwatch is a Swiss wristwatch?

On Today’s Menu…

A Family Feast

Our dessert of the day takes a while to make, but the wait is worth it. NATIONAL INDIAN PUDDING DAY combines cornmeal, milk, butter, eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice, ginger and raisins.  This then is slowly cooked for 6 hours until it is a creamy consistency.

On this day…


1856 – Big Ben chimes for the first time

1927 – The Holland Tunnel opens, connecting New York and New Jersey under the Hudson River

1940 – Walt Disney releases Fantasia

1974 – Karen Silkwood, a worker at a plutonium plant, dies in a mysterious car crash.  She had been headed to a meeting with a union rep about the dangerous working conditions at the plant and reportedly had a folder full of documents to prove it.  She had complained to the Atomic Energy Commission a week before.  There was no folder found at the crash site and she had enough quaaludes in her system to overdose.  The crash was ruled accidental but skid marks and a suspicious dent in her bumper suggested she had been hit from behind.  The movie, Silkwood, starring Meryl Streep, Cher and Kurt Russell, tells her story.

1979 – Darryl Dawkins, aka Chocolate Thunder, the Philadelphia Seventy Sixers center, breaks his first backboard while slam dunking.  After the second one was broken, the NBA commissioner told him that every broken rim after that would cost him a suspension and $5,000

1982 – The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is dedicated


 2002 – Eminem’s Lose Yourself becomes the first rap song to win an Oscar for Best Original Song – it was in the movie 8 Mile

David Green (1941-)

Whoopi Goldberg (1955- )

Enjoy the day and make it your own

Dear Heavenly Father, I would ask that you watch over these beautiful people and let them feel your amazing presence.  May you bless them and keep them from harm.  In your name I pray, Jesus, Amen.
