National Poison Prevention Week
March 17th 23rd




Poison Prevention Tips
Each year children under age 5- come in contact or swallow a poisonous substance. 
Treatment

If your child is unconscious, not breathing, or having convulsions or seizures due to poison contact or ingestion, call 911 or your local emergency number immediately. If your child has come in contact with poison and has mild or no symptoms, call 
Poison Help at 1-800-222-1222
Below are a few tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics
To poison proof your home:
Most poisonings occur when parents or caregivers are home but not paying attention. The most dangerous potential poisons are medicines, cleaning products, liquid nicotine, antifreeze, windshield wiper fluid, pesticides, furniture polish, gasoline, kerosene and lamp oil. Be especially vigilant when there is a change in routine. Holidays, visits to and from grandparents' homes, and other special events may bring greater risk of poisoning if the usual safeguards are defeated or not in place. 



  • Store medicine, cleaning and laundry products (including detergent packets), paints/varnishes and pesticides in their original packaging in locked cabinets or containers, out of sight and reach of children.
  • Safety latches that automatically lock when you close a cabinet door can help keep children away from dangerous products, but there is always a chance the device will malfunction. The safest place to store poisonous products is somewhere a child can't reach.  
  • Purchase and keep all medicines in containers with safety caps and keep out of reach of children. Discard unused medication. Note that safety caps are designed to be child resistant but are not fully child proof.
  • Never refer to medicine as "candy" or another appealing name.
  • Check the label each time you give a child medicine to ensure proper dosage. For liquid medicines, use the dosing device that came with the medicine. Never use a kitchen spoon.
  • If you use an e-cigarette, keep the liquid nicotine refills locked up out of children's reach and only buy refills that use child resistant packaging. Ingestion or skin exposure with just a small amount of the liquid can be fatal to a child.
  • Never place poisonous products in food or drink containers.
  • Keep coal, wood or kerosene stoves in safe working order.
  • Maintain working smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
  • Secure remote controls, greeting cards, and musical children's books. These and other devices may contain small button-cell batteries that can cause injury if ingested.

Born on March 2, 1904, in Springfield, Massachusetts as Theodor Seuss Geisel, attended Dartmouth College he joined the humor magazine called the Dartmouth Jack-O-Lantern becoming the editor –in-chief. Drinking was prohibited during that time.

As a result, he was forced to resign hat magazine for being tipsy, sloshed, smashed, stoned, plastered, - drunk. Because he loved the work; he decided to continue under a pen name ‘Seuss.’ 


Fast forward-  for more on the background history of Dr. Seuss visit



After WWII/World War II, living in La Jolla, California, he began writing children’s books under the pen name Dr. Seuss.

I’ m sure you have as many favorites as I!  There are so many, some of my favorites, the ‘Cat in the Hat’ If I Ran the Zoo, One Fish Two Fish Red Blue Fish, and many more.

It was in 1997, that the National Education Association, focused, on a day celebrating READING! In hopes, to encourage children throughout North America, to Read more - the date, March 2, 1998, which is also, the birthday of Dr. Seuss.

President’s day
Monday February 18th




President’s Day Trivia


What does the “S” in Harry S. Truman’s name stand for?

Answer: Nothing
The S in President Truman’s name is actually a compromise his parents made between both of his grandfather’s names, Anderson Shipp Truman and Solomon Young. There is still controversy today about whether there should be a period after the S.


Did every president live in the White House?

Answer: No
Not every U.S. president lived in the White House. Our first president, George Washington, oversaw the construction of the building when it began in 1792 but never got to live there. The first president who got to call White House “home” was John Adams, who moved in with his wife, Abigail, in 1800.


Who was the fifth president of the United States?

Answer: James Monroe was the fifth president was the fifth president of the United States, having served in office from 1817 to 1825. Many people assume Abraham Lincoln was the fifth president because he appears on the $5 bill. Lincoln was actually the 16th president. 

 

Who was the first president to be born in the United States?

Answer: Martin Van Buren
Yes,  the constitution requires the U.S. president be a natural-born citizen, but the first seven presidents were born before the United States gained independence, meaning they 
were British subjects. Martin Van Buren,  the eighth president, was born in New York in 1782.
