Kev’s Daily Take On 12/11/2022

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…


HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE FOR THE NEEDY ANIMALS’ DAY makes sure that all of the animals in the shelters are taken care of during this holiday day season.  If you have the ability to donate some food for these needy animals, I am sure they would appreciate it.

Education and Information

For Fun

NATIONAL APP DAY declares that – there is an app for that.  Where would we be without the plethora of precious playable programs that proliferate our lives?  Lost, maybe – bored – certainly.

On Today’s Menu…

NOODLE RING DAY goes round and round as we celebrate the pasta that never ends.  Take some noodles – preferably circular shaped – add flour, cheese, breadcrumbs and whatever else you want to a Bundt cake pan – bake and eat.  Don’t forget SpaghettiOs, they count for the day as well.

  1. Thanks Kevin for sharing that stretching exercises can life greater mobility. I need to prioritize this more in my own life. Your mention of Walter Knott takes me back to the summer of 1973 when my family enjoyed southern California at Knott’s Berry Farm and Disneyland. Quite a journey from Montana with eight of us.


  2. I bet that was quite the trip and I feel the same about the stretching. I gotta do something… Maybe even look into yoga.
