Kev’s Daily Take On 11/18/2022

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…

SUBSTITUTE EDUCATOR DAY gives a big thanks to those teachers who are always on call.  They are ready to walk into a classroom and face any challenge thrown at them.  They allow the curriculum to stay on track and keep our students learning.  Thank you for your hard work.

Family and Friends

NATIONAL PRINCESS DAY coincides with the theatrical release of The Swan Princess in 1994.  If you have a princess for a wife, sister, daughter, mom, aunt, cousin or friend, let them know how much they mean to you and how much beauty they bring into the world.

For Fun

MICKEY MOUSE DAY says HAPPY BIRTHDAY to this iconic character who made his debut on this day in Steamboat Willie back in 1928. This was the first animation that was synced to music and sound effects.

OCCULT DAY searches for the hidden knowledge of life.  While occultism might have been more about world domination and evil spells in the past, today it has more to do with self-enlightenment.  I do believe in the spiritual world and would give a warning that you take care with what you look for and the way you go about it.

On Today’s Menu…

VICHYSSOISE DAY serves up a cold bowl of soup.  A combination of potatoes, leeks, onions, cream and chicken stock makes for a filling and delicious meal.

APPLE CIDER DAY can be served cold or hot.  A glass of this sweet drink will not only give you a healthy dose of apple but a very nice feeling as well.
