THIS DAY IN HISTORY - April 2
Pope John Paul II Dies - 2005
On this day in 2005, John Paul II, history’s most well-traveled pope and the first non-Italian to hold the position since the 16th century, dies at his home in the Vatican. Six days later, two million people packed Vatican City for his funeral, said to be the biggest funeral in history.John Paul II was born Karol Jozef Wojtyla in Wadowice, Poland, 35 miles southwest of Krakow, in 1920. After high school, the future pope enrolled at Krakow’s Jagiellonian University, where he studied philosophy and literature and performed in a theater group. During World War II, Nazis occupied Krakow and closed the university, forcing Wojtyla to seek work in a quarry and, later, a chemical factory. By 1941, his mother, father, and only brother had all died, leaving him the sole surviving member of his family.
Although Wojtyla had been involved in the church his whole life, it was not until 1942 that he began seminary training. When the war ended, he returned to school at Jagiellonian to study theology, becoming an ordained priest in 1946. He went on to complete two doctorates and became a professor of moral theology and social ethics. On July 4, 1958, at the age of 38, he was appointed auxiliary bishop of Krakow by Pope Pius XII. He later became the city s archbishop, where he spoke out for religious freedom while the church began the Second Vatican Council, which would revolutionize Catholicism. He was made a cardinal in 1967, taking on the challenges of living and working as a Catholic priest in communist Eastern Europe. Once asked if he feared retribution from communist leaders, he replied, “I m not afraid of them. They are afraid of me.”

Vodka saves British cat after brake fluid poisoning
(UPI) -- Veterinarians in London said a cat that accidentally poisoned herself with brake fluid was saved by an unusual antidote: vodka.
The Blue Cross animal hospital in London said 7-year-old cat Princess was brought in by her owner, Teresa Correira Maria, after the feline was found covered in spilled brake fluid in a garden shed.
Veterinarians said Princess quickly became ill after attempting to clean the chemicals off her fur with her tongue.
The hospital said veterinarians rushed to the nearest liquor store to buy a bottle of high alcohol content vodka, which they said can counteract the effects of ethylene glycol, the poisonous chemical in brake fluid, if given to a pet quickly after ingestion.
The vodka was administered to Princess via an IV drip.
"Princess was in a really bad way and it was really touch and go," veterinarian Heather Loh said. "Household products containing this type of chemical are very dangerous to pets and Princess needed 24-hour intensive care."
"Pets should never be given alcohol but this was the only solution to prevent the poison from taking over and killing her," Loh said. "She was a bit worse the wear for several days afterwards but we were relieved blood tests showed the effects of the drip were working and the poison would no longer be fatal."
Maria said Princess has since been able to come home and is recovering from her ordeal.
"I was so worried about her but now relieved and happy she is making a full recovery and was well enough to come home," she said. "The treatment did sound unusual when vets explained what was happening, but I just wanted Princess to survive. I will make sure there is no way she can get into this kind of trouble again."
Fun, Festive Ideas to Sweeten Easter Celebrations
(StatePoint) Spring is here, which means it’s time for throwing memorable celebrations for friends and family. Whether you are hosting an Easter brunch or attending a spring picnic, you can make these occasions unforgettable with a few fun and festive additions.
No Easter celebration is complete without an egg decorating station for children and the young at heart. Stock up on a variety of paints, glitter, dye, stencils, and textured fabric, and let imaginations run wild.
Plan for your Easter egg hunt to take place outdoors, but have an indoor back-up in case the weather does not cooperate. Make sure to take all the ages of participants into account when deciding where to hide eggs!
Anyone with a sweet tooth knows that Easter and delicious treats go hand in hand, so pay extra attention to this essential element of your party. A candy buffet invites guests to try an assortment of treats. To satisfy everyone’s taste buds, offer milk and dark chocolates, lollypops, springtime truffles and sour bunnies.
Stick with go-to candy makers like See’s Candies, which uses high-quality ingredients and is one of the few remaining candy makers that ages its chocolate -- a process that imparts a smoother, mellower flavor and elevates the overall taste experience, making it a great option for Easter entertaining.
Take an opportunity to spring clean your home before your gathering. A new season and knowing guests will be coming over can be great motivators for sprucing up your home.
For décor, gather flowers to create colorful centerpieces, including tulips and Easter lilies. Use brightly colored tablecloths and runners, scattering confetti and small sweet treats on tables for a special touch.
Whether crafting Easter baskets or looking for a gift to take to your host, candy is always a great choice. No matter what your basket or gift budget is, treats can be found in a variety of sizes and price ranges -- from hand-decorated Rocky Road Eggs to chocolate bunnies and Strawberry Cream Lollypops. For more Easter inspiration, visit Sees.com or their Instagram page.
With a few sweet twists, you can spring into Easter with flair this year.
Books Make Great Easter Gifts for Kids
StatePoint) Filling Easter baskets for the kids? Think beyond the typical sweets and treats and consider including books as well.
“All kids love books, even if they’re too little to read. For babies and toddlers, choose kid-sized books full of bright photos that they will love looking at again and again. There’s so much research showing how important reading is for a child’s development. You can build on it by making the experience fun for parents and their children,” says Rachel Barry, vice president of marketing and publicity at DK, a publisher of adult and children’s books.
This Easter, consider these seasonal selections.
Fun at the Farm
Cushioned, bumpy and shiny pages encourage sensory development, language skills and early reading skills. As part of DK’s Touch and Feel Series, “Really Feely: Farm” introduces babies and toddlers to a favorite pre-school subject: farm animals, including fluffy ducklings, woolly sheep, and a bristly pig.
Help build your baby’s identification and language skills. In “100 First Words,” photography and labels introduce primary concepts like shapes, colors and animals, and encourage pointing, naming, and talking.
A classic board book, “Baby Touch & Feel: Animals,” helps children develop their knowledge of animals while increasing the use of their senses. Babies will meet puppies, kittens, penguins and other animals throughout the pages of this book that features photographs and touch-and-feel textures.
For children who love farm animals, consider an interactive book featuring flaps, touch-and-feel textures and incredible pop-out surprises. Promoting memory, imagination and parent-and-child interaction, “Pop-Up Peekaboo: Farm” enhances the reading experience.
Feel the Love
Celebrate love and promote sensory development and early language skills with this USA Today Bestseller, “Baby Touch & Feel: I Love You,” which features soft bunnies, fuzzy teddy bears, sparkly hearts and more. More kids’ books for Easter can be found at PenguinRandomHouse.com.
To make sure your Easter baskets include gifts that can be enjoyed beyond the holiday, include books that will become young readers’ all-time favorites.
