Kev’s Daily Take On 11/22/2022

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.

Celebrate You with…

LOVE YOUR FRECKLES DAY wants you to celebrate you.  Share those freckles with the rest of us and add a big ol’ smile to go along with them.

For Fun

GO FOR A RIDE DAY hears the call of the open road.  You can only look at your screen or be cooped up in the house for so long before you realize a little road therapy may do you some good.  Get out and go somewhere you haven’t been or haven’t been to in a while.  Maybe see some friends or just go wherever the road takes you.

On Today’s Menu…

CRANBERRY RELISH DAY celebrates the tart side dish that adds a little color to the table.  Whether you like the gelatinous, can-shaped sauce or the kind with whole cranberries, you cannot forget this garnish on Thanksgiving.

Sneak Peek at Tomorrow’s Events and Celebrations

National Espresso Day

Tie One on Day (an apron that is)

National Jukebox Day


On this day…

1718 – Edward Teach, or Blackbeard the Pirate, is killed off the North Carolina Coast during battle with the British navy


1954 – The Humane Society of the United States is established


1963 – At 12:30 pm, shots rang out during a presidential parade in Dallas leaving President John F. Kennedy mortally wounded. 30 minutes later, he was pronounced dead.  If you were alive during this awful event, you probably remember where you were and what you were doing.

The Atlantic

1980 – JR Ewing was not a nice person and there weren’t too many tears shed when he had been shot. The network left it as a cliffhanger until the next season and a writer’s strike delayed the unmasking of the shooter even more. It would be 8 months before we would find out that ##### shot JR – wait a minute – I feel another writer’s strike coming on – you may have to wait until tomorrow to find out who shot JR – if you have gone this long wondering, surely you can wait another day without looking it up.

The Daily Telegraph

1986 – At 20-years-old, Mike Tyson knocks out Trevor Berbick 5 minutes into the fight to become the youngest heavyweight champion titleholder

1990 – Margaret Thatcher – the Iron Lady – resigns her office as Prime Minister of Britain after a split in her Conservative Party failed to give her a majority vote as it’s leader

1995 – Buzz and Woody burst onto the screen when Toy Story is released.  This would be the first full-length animated movie that was generated entirely by computers.

CNN International

2005 – Angela Merkel becomes the first female chancellor of Germany

Happy Birthday to…

Famous People
Abigail Adams (1744-1818)
Our 2nd First Lady would have loved social media.  She was a prolific letter writer and from her many correspondences, we can get a good idea of what it was like to live in those times.
Wiley Post (1899-1935)
He was the first to fly solo around the world
Rodney Dangerfield (1921-2004)
This comedian made a successful career out of getting no respect

Irish Sun
Jamie Lee Curtis (1958- )
She was stalked by Jason in Friday the Thirteenth, traded places with Lindsey Lohan in Freaky Friday, went on an adventure in True Lies and was part of a mystery in Knives Out.  As many accomplishments as she has on the big screen, she is most proud of beating her addiction to alcohol and painkillers – way to go Jamie
Mark Ruffalo (1967- )
This avenger (Hulk) has won Golden Globes and Emmys and starred in romantic comedies before he turned green

Scarlett Johansson (1984- )
Our second avenger (Black Widow) has ventured onto Broadway as well as acted in quite a few diversified roles in movies like The Horse Whisperer, Her, and Hail Caesar

Enjoy the day and make it your own

Most Awesome God, thank you for such a lovely world, for these wonderful people and for life itself.  Amen.
