Kev’s Daily Take On 04/24/2023

 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.

Celebrate You with…

NATIONAL BUCKET LIST DAY doesn’t want you to miss out on the grand adventure that is life.  What is something you always wanted to do?  Don’t put it off until it is too late and enjoy the time you have now.  I have got to see the Grand Canyon.

Today’s Fashion Trends

Rhode Island School of Design

FASHION REVOLUTION DAY was born out of tragedy.  In 2013 in Bangladesh, a garment factory burned down killing over 1100 men, women, and children – this was the deadliest structure failure in history.  Many garment workers around the world work long hours for little pay under harsh conditions and this day is a wakeup call to change that.  Transparency is needed in this industry and using the hashtag #WhoMadeMyClothes raises awareness.  Find out where your clothes come from.

For Fun


You may think that NATIONAL SKIPPING DAY is just for kids but think again.  Skipping is a very healthy exercise that uses all of your muscles, is a great cardio workout and can be fun.  Jumping rope falls in this category and that is one exercise that will get your heart pumping.  Now, you won’t see me skipping down the street anytime soon, but I may have to find my old jump rope and see if I can still do it without getting tangled up.

On Today’s Menu…

Next, we celebrate A time honored dish on NATIONAL PIGS-IN-A-BLANKET-DAY.  Fry up some sausage links, wrap some pancakes around them and you have breakfast.  Of course, the standard is your hot dog wrapped in cheese, stuffed into a flaky croissant.  Pigs-in-blankets can include any meat wrapped with just about anything.  A favorite appetizer or game munchie is your little smokey sausages wrapped in bacon and drizzled with brown sugar.  Put them bad boys in the slow cooker a couple of hours before you serve them and guaranteed there won’t be any left.
