This Is National Stress Awareness Day! 


This special day was designated for April 16th, because it's the day after taxes are due. Perhaps it's school, work, kids or money that is making you feel stressed out. Today, RELAX! Learn to do something about the stress, before it drives you batty or worse.

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!!
