That's a strange combination isn't it?  Well, as I write this blog, we're in the first full week of Spring Break for many schools in central Indiana.  When I picked up the newspaper this morning, I was reminded again that Spring Break isn't always just fun and games.

Introducing SafelyMD

See this card?  It could save your life.
