Kev’s Daily Take On 03/04/2023

 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.

Military Honors

Find your favorite service person and celebrate NATIONAL HUG A G.I. DAY.  I am sure these trained soldiers would very much appreciate a little love thrown their way, so march forth and get to huggin’.

Family and Friends

While we are in an appreciative mood, how about celebrating NATIONAL SON’S DAY.  I can’t tell you how proud I am of my Son who has such a big heart and works so hard.  Give your kiddo a nod today and let them know how much you love them.

Awareness Spotlight shines on…

NATIONAL SNACK DAY and GLOBAL OBESITY DAY just happen to fall on the same day, and I think that needs a second look.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with snacking and it is far from me to tell anyone how to eat.  All we have to do is look around to see the expanding waistlines (myself included) and realize that some action needs to be taken as obesity leads to serious health problems.  Enjoy your snacks but at the same time be aware of choices and consequences.  I wish I had earlier.

Education and Information

I am so thankful for the little red and blue squiggly lines that appear as I am typing these paragraphs.  Without the blue ones I would not be able to celebrate NATIONAL GRAMMAR DAY correctly.  When to use their, they’re or there is important to know as is not skipping that comma or where to put it.  “They’re dinner” is a lot different than “their dinner”.

For Fun


When else would MARCHING MUSIC DAY fall on but March 4th?  Drum Corp International founded this day in 2017 and it really gets us stirred up.  There is nothing quite like the sight and sound of a well-tuned, in-sync, marching band parading down the street or at a game. 

On Today’s Menu…

Cooks Illustrated

Our dessert of the day is a heavyweight champ.  NATIONAL POUND CAKE DAY is no light matter and deserves some serious attention when it comes to this delicious cake.  The original recipe called for a pound of flour, butter, eggs, and sugar – each.  That’s a big cake and of course, where the name comes from.  Smaller proportions make for an ideal dessert that is just begging to top off a meal or make a sweet snack

Enjoy the day and make it your own
