Hey ladies (and gents)! Guess what? It’s National No Housework Day!

“What’s in a name?” This famous quote by Shakespeare suggests that names themselves hold no value but are simply a label. What counts is the worth of the individual or object described by the name. What counts is what’s on the inside. *dewy eye alert*
