Kev’s Daily Take On 11/15/2022

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…

NATIONAL ENTREPRENEURS’S DAY encourages us to take that good idea, come up with a sound business plan and put it into motion.  Remember, you only fail if you don’t try.

NATIONAL DRUMMER DAY paradiddles its way onto the calendar and wants us to know that drummers are musicians too.  Without someone pounding away at the skins and keeping time with those groovy licks, the whole band would be out of sync.

Awareness Spotlight shines on…

NATIONAL PHILANTHROPY DAY is brought to us by the Association of Fundraising Professionals. Today, we honor the individuals, non-profits and other organizations who give of their time and treasure to make a positive difference in this world.

Education and Information

AMERICA RECYCLES DAY is all about reducing, reusing and recycling.  Make sure you are doing what you can to help the environment in this way. 

For Fun

CLEAN OUT YOUR FRIDGE DAY just seems like a good time to do this.

On Today’s Menu…

RAISIN BRAN CEREAL DAY pours us a bowl of healthy sweetness that will help keep you regular.  Several companies make this cereal, so grab one and dig in.

SPICY HERMIT COOKIE DAY mixes up cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice and turns them into delicious cookies that can have raisins, nuts and dates. Sounds like a nice treat for this time of year.

Our dessert of the day is NATIONAL BUNDT CAKE DAYCelebrate this cake and the special pan needed to fix it.  Pick a cake mix and frosting, bake, and enjoy.

  1. Dave Thomas’ original Wendy’s finally closed in 2007. It was still operating when I moved to the Columbus area. Great photo of drummer extraordinaire Buddy Rich.


    1. Even though it was there a long time, it’s still a shame it had to close. Yep, I had to pick one drummer for the day and it had to be him.
