Kev’s Daily Take On 04/10/2023


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.

Family and Friends

Give your brother or sister a big hug today as it is NATIONAL SIBLINGS DAY.  If you can’t hug ‘em, a phone call would work, and if they aren’t around, fond memories will keep them alive in your heart.  I have an amazing sister of whom I am very proud, three brothers-in-law of whom I feel honored to be a part of their lives and one sister-in-law who keeps me on my toes.


 Do you know of an expressive person who likes to communicate creatively?  NATIONAL ENCOURAGE A YOUNG WRITER DAY is all about…encouragement.  Let them know that their writings are good enough to share with the world.  Of course, the writer doesn’t have to be young – us older folks like a little pep talk every now and then too.

Our Furry Friends

While we are in hugging mode give your pooch(s) a big squeeze on NATIONAL HUG YOUR DOG DAY.  They will appreciate it and it will make you feel good too.

NATIONAL FARM ANIMALS DAY focuses attention on the humane treatment of these domesticated animals.  While there is no reason to name the next chicken that will be dinner or get close to your steak on the hoof, all animals are under our care and should be treated accordingly.  If you come across any abuse, report it to your veterinarian.

On Today’s Menu…

Our dessert of the day also makes for a good breakfast.  NATIONAL CINAMMON CRESCENT DAY just sounds delish with a cup of coffee.  Butter, sugar and cinnamon fill the crescent pastry for a sweet treat that can be made even sweeter with icing drizzled on top.  Not to mention, it will give your kitchen a delightful aroma while they are baking.
