Joke of the day: Two women were comparing notes on the difficulties of running a small business. ‘I started a new practice last year,’ the first one said. ‘I insist that each of my employees take at least a week off every three months.’ ‘Why in the world would you do that?’ the other asked. She responded, ‘It’s the best way I can learn which ones I can do without.’
