We have all heard that old adage "An Apple a Day keeps the Doctor away", haven't we?
Now comes new (?) research in today's WSJ which gives a new spin to that. So let us all smile for what's it worth ... and live longer and less stressful. "A Smile (big one, please) a Day keeps Stress at Bay"! Thank goodness for the Smiley collections which offer just the right one for any occasion :-D!

Which are more causes to grin hugely, right?
And if you love hockey you'll love this

reduced your stress, You are ready to go!
Have Great day!
