Kev’s Daily Take On 11/28/2022

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…

CYBER MONDAY continues the holiday savings with on-line sales and deals.  Admittedly, the savings from Black Friday and Cyber Monday have kinda run together, and some places have been holding these sales for over a week now.  The main thing to know is that it is not too late to do some more holiday shopping and save.

Education and Information

NATIONAL BRAND DAY celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit and the identifying markers that go along with that.  Much like the brands that cowboys used to mark cattle, a business brand is the symbol of that venture. Building a brand takes time, patience and persistence.  If you are successful, it will pay off and, in my experience, hard work always pays off – one way or another.

On Today’s Menu…

FRENCH TOAST DAY could be breakfast or our dessert of the day.  Dip your bread into the egg mixture and toss it on the griddle.  One flip is all you need to make sure both sides are done and don’t forget to add the cinnamon.  Top it off as you please and may I recommend bacon as nice accompaniment to this ensemble.

  1. I’ll definitely remember Sadie as the first to conquer Niagara Falls in a barrel. One of our Ohio daughters has an English Lab named Sadie. Several years ago my wife and I visited the Grand Ole Opry’s birthplace at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. It is quite a treasure.


  2. I have been to Nashville but not inside the Opry. I will have to do that.
