Kev’s Daily Take On 01/14/2023

 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.

Our Furry Friends

DRESS UP YOUR PET DAY breaks out the cute costumes which are sure to be followed by many phone cameras clicking.  The question we have to ask ourselves is, “What are we willing to do to our pets to get those pictures?”

Education and Information

RATIFICATION DAY commemorates the ratification of the Treaty of Paris by the Continental Congress.  On this day in 1784, with the signing of this document, the Revolutionary War officially ended and Great Britain recognized the United States as a sovereign entity.

WORLD LOGIC DAY brings order to a chaotic world.  Today is a good day to handle problems and issues with as much logic as possible and to make Spock proud.

For Fun

VISION BOARD DAY takes our dreams and goals from our minds and brings them into the physical world.  Get your goals for the New Year written on sticky notes and post them on a board that is displayed somewhere prominent for you to look at. 

On Today’s Menu…

Kleinworth & Co

HOT PASTRAMI SANDWICH DAY gives us an excuse to go to the deli, or your favorite sandwich shop.  Pastrami is seasoned, brined beef that is a savory delight. Make sure and don’t miss this one.
