Birthdays For April 3rd + Walk To Work Day
If today is your birthday, congratulations! You share this date with three names in country music. Singer/songwriter Don Gibson, born in Shelby, North Carolina, in 1928 . He writes and records several classic hits--including "Sweet Dreams," "I Can't Stop Loving You" and "Oh Lonesome Me"--earning a 2001 induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Also born on this date, Billy Joe Royal, in Valdosta, Georgia, in 1942. Best known for his pop hits "Down In The Boondocks" and "Cherry Hill Park," he crafts a half-dozen Top 10 country singles from 1985-1990, including "Tell It Like It Is" and "Love Has No Right". Happy 73rd, Billy Joe! And finally bass player, Curtis Stone, in North Hollywood, California in 1950. The son of music figure Cliffie Stone, he joins Highway 101, which earns the Country Music Association's vocal group awards in 1988 and 1989. Happy 65th, Curtis!
This Is National Walk To Work Day!
With obesity and sedentary growing at an all time high, this special day was started to help get all of us to exercise and to get into shape.
If you can't walk to work today, try walking 30 minutes at a convenient time. Then, make it a regular part of your life.
Remember, walking is free and as of right now, there is no tax on it either!
Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!
