Quotes from the episode: “From a stress level, I would say that this (the pandemic) is more stressful than just about anything I’ve ever experienced because it changes daily.”  Ray McGury

“Midday Spray is a diversion…You need a mental health break. This is part of our business… Being able to divert your stress and anxiety for a short period of time—whatever you can afford—is so important; and it’s really, really important now, for what we’re all going through.” – Ray McGury
