Kev’s Daily Take On 01/12/2023

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…


NATIONAL PHARMACIST DAY thanks the people who dispense not only our medicine, but advice and caring.  They go to school as long as a medical doctor, deal with customers, insurance plans, pharmaceutical companies, and make sure we have what we need.  Thank you for your hard work and dedication.

For Fun


KISS A GINGER DAY only works if you know the person and you have permission to do so.  Otherwise, you could be in a lot of trouble, legally and physically, as those red heads are known to have quite a temper.

On Today’s Menu…

NATIONAL HOT TEA DAY asks if you prefer Earl Gray or Orange Pekoe.  Maybe go organic or caffeine free.  However you like the second most popular beverage in the world, enjoy a cup.

CURRIED CHICKEN DAY comes in hot and spicy.  Onions, spices and of course, curry, are used to dress this fowl in a delicious coat of flavor and taste.

NATIONAL MARZIPAN DAY celebrates the candy made from sugar or honey and ground almonds.  These sweet treats are usually formed into the shape of fruits, vegetables and animals.  Hmmm, that’s one veggie that may not be so good for you, but it will taste delicious.

Happy Birthday to…

San Francisco Chronicle
Jack London (1876-1916)
This writer is known for Call of the Wild and White Fang
Ruth R. Benerito (1916-2013)
This chemist invented a wrinkle, flame, and stain resistant fabric

CBS News
James Farmer (1920-1999)
This civil rights activist worked alongside Martin Luther King Jr.

Ira Hamilton Hays (1922-1955)
He was one of the six marines holding up the flag in that iconic picture of Iwo Jima
Kreskin (1935- )
Also known as the Amazing Kreskin, he has delighted audiences with his “mentalist” abilities.  He never claimed to be a psychic, only an entertainer.  One of his best tricks was to have his paycheck for that night’s performance to be hidden somewhere in the audience while he went backstage.  He would then ferret out where it was – only failing to do this about 10 times

Daily Maverick
Joe Frazier (1944-2011)
This Heavyweight Champ ended up with a 32-4-1 record with 27 KOs
Kirstie Alley (1951-2022)
Rebecca from Cheers – RIP Kirstie
Rush Limbaugh (1951-2021)
You either loved him or hated him
Jeff Bezos (1964- )
Mr. Amazon

St. Louis Post Dispatch
Rob Zombie (1965- )
He is as much at home whether he is playing heavy metal with his band, White Zombie, or making horror movies

Enjoy the day and make it your own

Thank you, God, for who you are and for all of these beautiful people.  Please watch over them, keep them safe and continue to bless them.  I ask this in your name, Jesus, Amen.

  1. NFL soap opera . . . the Rams leave Cleveland for LA, then St. Louis, and back to LA. The saga of Cleveland probably deserves a whole other comment.

  2. Revolving door football teams is something Cleveland and St. Louis have in common. When the Cardinals left to goto Arizona we had fans lying down in front of the buses to try and stop them.
