Kev’s Daily Take On 11/19/2022

 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…

WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS DAY celebrates those creative gals who put it out there.  Starting up a business is always risky, but these women come up with a plan and make it happen.  Thank you for your invaluable contributions to our economy and society.

Awareness Spotlight shines on…

NATIONAL ADOPTION DAY celebrates the process that builds families.  I had the pleasure of working with a scout whose Eagle Project was building a picnic table. It was a very sturdy table, but his plan was to haul it down to Florida from St. Louis and donate it to the agency from which he was adopted.  They greatly appreciated it and to watch him and his family working to make it happen was very cool.  If you feel called to adopt a child – don’t let anything stop you.

Education and Information

WORLD TOILET DAY was created by Jack Sim, who also started the World Toilet Organization.  The objective is to bring awareness to places in the world that need adequate sanitation systems, something of which I am very grateful that we have here in the U.S.

For Fun

PLAY MONOPOLY DAY breaks out the board game that can make or break the bank.  Gotta be honest here – I don’t think I have ever finished a game and am not even sure how you win.

HAVE A BAD DAY DAY is the one day a year where it is ok to have a bad day and be honest about it.  You don’t have to fake a smile when someone asks you how it’s going.  It is ok if everything isn’t Jim Dandy all of the time.
