Kev’s Daily Take On 03/26/2023

 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…

While you are wearing your purple make sure and recognize WEAR A HAT DAY.  More than a fashion statement, donning a hat today is all about bringing awareness for brain tumor research and funding.  X-rays and CT scans have made a big difference in dealing with these malignant growths and offer hope to the 250,000,000 people in the world who contract them each year.  Let’s keep up the hard work and hopefully nullify the nasty effects of these tumors.

On Today’s Menu…

 Now, it’s time for a little health break with NATIONAL SPINACH DAY.  Full of iron, fiber, and other vitamins these leafy greens are good for your heart, your digestive system, and if you listen to Popeye, they are good for “your muskels”.  Enjoy some in a salad, as a side dish, in a dip or even on a pizza.


Our dessert of the day often plays a supporting role, but it can stand on its own.  NATIONAL NOUGAT DAY celebrates the candy made with beaten egg whites, honey, and nuts.  We usually see it in the middle of candy bars and one of the original purposes was to simulate the look of ice cream.  Make it by itself and you have some great divinity fudge.  My Grandma Cox would make this and then store it on the hood of her 69 Cutlass in the garage.  It was some tasty stuff.

Dear Heavenly Father, after 3 years we are still dealing with COVID and its terrible effects.  Please heal those who are sick and comfort those who are suffering from it.  May You grant those who are working to get it under control knowledge and skill.  May You grant those who are working to care for the sick love, strength and protection.  I ask this in Your name, Jesus, Amen.
