Kev’s Daily Take On 05/11/2023

 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.

Fitness and Health

NATIONAL FOAM ROLLING DAY is here to make us feel better.  Sometimes called “the poor man’s massage”, using rolled foam on your sore muscles, achy bones and tired body will relieve soreness, tension, and stress.  This exercise doesn’t promise to heal, but it may help you move better, and relieve muscle pain.  Get to rolling today.

For Fun


You unlock this door with the key of imagination.  Beyond it is another dimension – a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind.  You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas.  You’ve just crossed over into NATIONAL TWILIGHT ZONE DAY.  From 1959 to 1964, we could tune in and watch the unexplainable, the eerie, the odd and sometimes frightening events that would go on in the 5th dimension.  Do your best Rod Serling impersonation, see if you can find an episode to watch and be careful out there, or you may just end up in The Twilight Zone.

On Today’s Menu…


Our delicious dish, dessert of the day and delectable dinner are all rolled into one for NATIONAL EAT WHAT YOU WANT DAY.  When it comes to eating today, there are no rules.  Cold pizza for breakfast, a midday snack of pretzels and M&Ms followed by breakfast for dinner.  It is probably a good thing that this day only comes around once a year.
