I don’t know about you, but I find it VERY difficult to keep track of all the items being recalled these days. It seems the list gets longer each and every day! I came across this link that can help. There’s a lot on the list, and some of it may be specific to the U.S. but it might help to simplify things a bit.

Lights across the globe will go out Saturday night as part of Earth Hour. The yearly event encourages people to save energy and resources, if only for an hour.
Earth Hour occurs at 8:30 p.m. local time and major world landmarks will go dark, including the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building and the Sydney Opera House.
The World Wide Fund for Nature is coordinating the event and has provided activities for families to occupy their time when the lights go out.
Last year, 87 countries participated in the climate change initiative, which is a vast improvement from when the event first launched in Australia back in 2007.
Will you take part in Earth Day? Take the Jay & Billie Jo Survey and have your say!

This can be a MESSY time of year for our pets. I saw this machine a couple of weeks back, and thought “why do they only have this in Japan??”
You put your dog inside the “washing machine” and about 30 minutes later out comes a squeaky clean pet that’s been washed, rinsed, and dried! I’m sure you’ll get that “sad sack” look for a bit, but that will surely be forgotten after a treat or two! LOL
