Kev’s Daily Take On 01/09/2023

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…


LAW ENFORCEMENT APPRECIATION DAY gives a big thanks and a salute to the brave men and women who put their lives on the line every day.  They go out to protect and to serve, not knowing if they will be able to return to their loved ones afterwards.  We cannot thank them enough for their dedication, bravery and caring.  Please be careful out there.

INTERNATIONAL CHOREOGRAPHERS’ DAY celebrates the talented folk who bring us the creative world of dance.  With patience and determination, they train the dancers and come up with the routines that entertain and amaze us.  Thank you for what you do.

Celebrate You with…


WORD NERD DAY brings out the logophile in all of us.  Having an immense vocabulary and being able to apply that vernacular in the appropriate situations can be stimulating as well as invigorating.

Education and Information


STATIC ELECTRICITY DAY shocks us at that time of year when the air is driest and the chance for this phenomenon is highest.  When an atom’s positive and negative charges are out of balance and then discharged, we feel the effects in the form of a shock.  Rubbing your stocking feet on the carpet and then touching a metal surface will give you an excellent example of how it works.  So will two people who drag their feet on the carpet and then kiss.  The second way sounds more fun.

For Fun

CLEAN OFF YOUR DESK DAY assumes you have an unorganized desk that needs to be put in order. I don’t believe it.  I know everyone’s desk is orderly and everything on it is in its proper place.

On Today’s Menu…

NATIONAL APRICOT DAY gives this distant cousin of the peach its time in the spotlight.  One of these little dynamos will give you most of the vitamin A you need for the day and about ¼ of the vitamin C.  They are perfect for canning, drying or dehydrating which allows them to be enjoyed all year long.

NATIONAL CASSOULET DAY comes to us from the country that knows how to cook – France.  Made with white beans, sausages and duck, this dish will make a hearty addition to the table and keep you warm in the winter months.  You can change out the basic recipe, but it has to be made with white beans.  Enjoy!
