Kev’s Daily Take On 05/09/2023

 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.

A Tip of the Hat Goes to…

NATIONAL HOMEFRONT HEROE’S DAY is brought to us by Major John “Lucky” Luckadoo.  The Major is the last surviving member of the World War II Eighth Air Force Bombardment Group and remembers all the support from the people back home.  The Homefront heroes made sacrifices by rationing supplies, putting in overtime at the factories and setting donations and drives for the soldiers overseas.  Today, there are quite a few people working behind the lines to support our troops any way they can.  We thank you for your work and dedication.

For Fun

NATIONAL ALPHABET MAGNET DAY celebrates the toy that teaches, is useful for leaving messages and can be used just to mess with people.  Samuel Hardcastle first developed these letters to be used in space, but they work just as well down here on planet Earth.

Let us gather together on this somber day and pay tribute to LOST SOCK MEMORIAL DAY.  As we remember the service given by these selfless socks, we just can’t help but wonder where they end up – leaving their mates all alone.  If you have the strength of heart, today is the day to either get rid of the loners or repurpose them for the greater good.

Belly up to the Bar

Let’s raise a glass to NATIONAL MOSCATO DAY.  This versatile grape yields a wide variety of wines, from dry, to floral to sparkling and dessert.  Moscato is the third most popular white wine and goes great with, well…just about anything.

On Today’s Menu…

Our dessert of the day goes well with Moscato wine as well.  NATIONAL BUTTERSCOTCH BROWNIE DAY may leave the chocolate out, but that’s okay.  As a matter of fact, the blonde brownie was around before the chocolate counterpart and can be enjoyed every bit as much.  Bake up a batch and make sure to send me some.
