Kev’s Daily Take On 01/15/2023

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.

Religious Holidays

WORLD RELIGION DAY focuses on the many different ways to focus on God.  Religion can be man-made, and in my opinion, it is your relationship with the Creator of the universe that’s important.

Today’s Fashion Trends

NATIONAL HAT DAY sports a trendy cover for your noggin.  Pick out your favorite one and join in the fun.

  1. Kev, I’m trying to avoid the temptation of eating a bagle or enjoying a double scoop of ice cream. I witnessed the “first” Super Bowl on television when the big game wasn’t even called that.


  2. I also am trying avoid those temptations as well, but unfortunately, I keep running into them.😊
