Kev’s Daily Take On 01/19/2023

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.

Celebrate You with…

WOMEN’S HEALTHY WEIGHT DAY encourages a fit lifestyle that doesn’t go overboard.  The BMI (Body Mass Index) is a better gauge of your ideal weight than your bathroom scale.  Mental and social stability are just as important as your physical wellbeing.  Remember to love yourself, after all, each woman is beautiful inside and out – of course, I am married to the most beautiful one.

GOOD MEMORY DAY wants us to remember those moments that make us smile as well as to keep that part of your brain sharp and in working order.  Break out the photo albums and take a trip down memory lane.  After that, maybe work on some puzzles or start a new hobby or even learn a new language. 

Education and Information

GUN APPRECIATION DAY comes to us fully loaded.  There are so many views on the subject of gun control and this day was founded to protest strict gun laws.  I do know one thing.  With the proper training and safety precautions, these engineering marvels can be used in the right way, safely.  I have seen good firearms training and if everyone followed it, there would be no accidents.

On Today’s Menu…

WORLD QUARK DAY is all over this versatile dairy product.  Made from milk that has had the curds and whey separated, Quark is a kind of cheese that has been labeled as a superfood since it is high protein and low fat.  You can use it in a variety of recipes, as a home remedy or even a beauty product.

NATIONAL POPCORN DAY brings out the butter.  Make sure and celebrate this one with a bowl of this popped goodness.  Maybe add a pinch of salt and plop down in front of the tube to watch your favorite shows.
