NJ mom leads 2nd world try at bubble-blowing mark

For the second straight year, a New Jersey mom has led a worldwide attempt to break the Guinness World Record for most people simultaneously blowing bubbles in multiple locations.

Isabelle Mosca of Ventnor had volunteers in 114 locations nationwide and as far away as Australia, the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico on Friday. It will be several weeks before they know if they broke the 34,529 record set in England in 2007.

Mosca's 13-year-old son, Kyle, is autistic and loves blowing bubbles. That led Mosca to use bubble-blowing as a way to raise money and awareness for autism research.

Thousands participated last year, but people at many events failed to properly document their participation as required by Guinness World Records. This time she took no chances, with detailed paperwork required.
