Happy Mother’s Day to you Moms.  The world is a better place because of you.  I hope that each and every one of you has a wonderful Mother’s Day, doing whatever it is you choose to do today, whether it is being with your children or not.  Since my children are grown and have families of their own and don’t live close by, I will be celebrating my day by trying to do nothing at all.  This is hard for me to do, and every year I fail at it.  In fact, as I sit here blogging about doing nothing, I realize that once again, I am doing something, blogging, lol.  Already I have failed at doing nothing.  Oh well, it is Mother’s Day, so I can change my mind,  right?  

Happy Mother’s Day to my mother, who I will not see today as she does not live close by, but she will be visiting next week.  I am looking forward to seeing her and my step-father and taking a day off to spend some time with them both and make it a special day for all of us.

Did you know that the United States is not the only country that celebrates Mother’s Day today?  Anguilla, Aruba, Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belgium, Belize, Bermuda, Bonaire, Brazil, Brunei, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Croatia, Cuba, Curaçao, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominica, Ecuador, Estonia, Ethiopia, Fiji, Finland, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Grenada, Honduras, Hong Kong, Iceland, India, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Macao, Malaysia, Malta, Myanmar, Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Puerto Rico, St. Lucia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Suriname, Switzerland, Taiwan, Tanzania, Tonga, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine, Uruguay, Venezuela, Zambia, and  Zimbabwe celebrate mothers today as well.   Albania and South Korea celebrate Parent’s day today, not just mothers.  To all the mothers around the world, may your day be a great one for you too.

Happy Mother’s Day!

A voluntary recall has begun by Johnson and Johnson on certain children’s over-the-counter medicines because of manufacture deficiencies. The deficiencies may affect the potency, purity or quality of the products. The recall involves all unexpired lots of seven products in 43 different flavors and sizes. These include Tylenol Infants’ Drops, Children’s Tylenol Suspensions, Infants’ Motrin Drops, Children’s Zyrtec liquids in bottles and Children’s Benadryl Allergy liquids.

The recall comes after federal health regulators cited McNeil on Friday morning for manufacturing violations found during a routine inspection at a company facility in Fort Washington, Pa., an F.D.A. spokeswoman said. This is the second major recall this year for McNeil. In January, after receiving reports of moldy smells emanating from over-the-counter medicines made at a plant in Puerto Rico, the company recalled several hundred lots of adult and children’s products.

Consumers should stop using certain lots of infants’ and children’s Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl products because some of them may contain more of the active drug ingredient than specified, the Johnson & Johnson unit. McNeil has posted a full list of the recalled product lots on a dedicated web site. To see the list, click here McNeil also has a hotline, (888) 222-6036, available 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Eastern time, Monday through Friday and on weekends from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. However, the lines seem to be constantly busy, so checking the web site seems to be a quicker way to check out if you have one of the recalled products.
