Kev’s Daily Take On 02/09/2023

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.

Awareness Spotlight shines on…

Education and Information

It pains me to announce NATIONAL TOOTHACHE DAY.  Proper dental hygiene can save you a lot of pain, money and time and that includes brushing, flossing and the use of mouth wash.  It is a lot better to see the dentist for a routine cleaning than to fill a cavity or have a tooth pulled.

For Fun

Sling TV

What does Sling TV have to do with cutting the cord?  NATIONAL CUT THE CORD DAY is all about switching from the tethered hold of cable and perusing the freedom of streaming TV.  Sling thought it would be a good idea to sponsor this day of getting people to make the change from having to watch scheduled programming to choosing what you watch when you want to watch it. 

On Today’s Menu…

The Best BBQ in St. Louis

This next one is a MAJOR holiday.  NATIONAL PIZZA DAY doesn’t discriminate on what kind of pie catches your eye.  Thin, thick or hand tossed crust – New York, Chicago, Detroit or St. Louis style are all options today.  Pick your crust and toppings and enjoy.  Bring it all on – except anchovies.

BAGEL AND LOX DAY brings us the tasty combination of a yummy bagel, cream cheese and a favorite topper – lox.  The buttery silky salmon just pairs well and is a healthy addition to this dish.

  1. My wife and I were out and about in the car today, and we appreciated hearing Travis Tritt singing his classic “It’s a Great Day to Be Alive.”
