Kev’s Daily Take On 01/23/2023

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.

Education and Information

BETTER BUSINESS COMMUNICATION DAY assumes that there are absolutely no miscommunications at the workplace.  Everyone communicates what they are supposed to – fills out all of the reports correctly and hands them in on time.  What’s that – No – not at your business – well then, we better work on that.

For Fun

NATIONAL HANDWRITING DAY brings back this personalized form of communication.  It is nice to get away from the keyboards and sharpen our handwriting skills.  Work on a journal or write a letter to celebrate the day.

On Today’s Menu…


NATIONAL PIE DAY says that if there is a crust underneath it, it counts.  Chocolate Cream, Lemon Meringue, Mincemeat, Peach, or good ol’ American apple pie – any pie can be on the menu today.

Our dessert of the day comes by way of jolly old England.  INTERNATIONAL STICKY TOFFEE PUDDING DAY consists of moist sponge cake made with finely chopped dates covered in toffee sauce and often served with custard, cream, or ice cream.  They had me at toffee sauce.

  1. Another blessed time with you Kev. I still hand write my poetry drafts. It just seems that my imagination and creativity is better connected to my pen rather than a keyboard.
