Stamps are fun.

Today is World Turtle Day!  Founded by American Tortoise Rescue, the day is used as a springboard for spreading awareness and understanding of turtles and tortoises and, you know, terrapins.  Chelonians in general (that is, members of the superorder Chelonia, not the creepy mccreepersons from Dr. Who).  Join the fun on the facebook, or make your own fun, but give a thought to helping a turtle today—or any day.
