Kev’s Daily Take On 12/02/2022

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 BARTENDERS’ DAY reminds us to thank and tip those master mixologists who serve up the drinks and lend an ear when we need someone to listen to us.  May your bar always be warm and inviting and may your tap never run dry.

Our Furry Friends

NATIONAL MUTT DAY fetches a fun day for us. We celebrate the loveable, loyal mutt that is a breed unto itself.  Most people are a mixture of heritages which could be why we identify with this dog so easily.  Give your mutt some extra playtime, treats, or hugs today.

Education and Information


SPECIAL EDUCATION DAY marks the 1975 signing of the Education for all Handicapped Children Act by President Gerald Ford.  Changes for the better have been added to this legislation and it has since been renamed Individuals with Disabilities Education Act or IDEA.  The message is clear – ALL children deserve an education, no matter their circumstances.

For Fun

NATIONAL ANYTIME HAWAIIAN DAY wants us to break out our Hawaiian shirts and hula skirts.  Celebrate with the Aloha State as they honor their culture today.

On Today’s Menu…

NATIONAL FRITTERS DAY gets that deep fryer going.  Whether you fry up potato fritters, corn fritters or apple fritters, pick a fritter and enjoy – what’s a little cholesterol between friends?

Oops, she did it again
Aaron Rodgers (1983- )

Enjoy the day and make it your own

Dear Heavenly Father, we ask for protection for our children as they go to school.  Evil is out there looking to harm them, and may you wrap your strong arms around each and every one of them, so they have a safe place to learn.  I ask this in your name, Jesus, Amen.
