Sweet Deals

Blog2print, the company that allows you to create a book of your blog, is offering 15% off through March 31st. Use the code newb2p checkout. They've also fixed a bug we noticed - to save paper, the process condenses photos & text which can result in hanging text. Now, you can opt to have a true snapshot layout (which will apparently cost a little more because it uses more pages). Supposedly, they have also upgraded their software to allow you to remove posts you don't want included. That feature didn't really in my first attempt. Though, to keep things simple, I'm just going to ignore that option! To get started, just pick a start/end date for your book & head over to the site.Do you need to feel refreshed? The Skin Bar in Sugarhouse (Salt Lake City) is offering a fabulous special - $20 facials. Yes, these are 50 minute facials by a new aesthetician who is trying to grow her clientele. Call 801 739 2721 to book your appointment.
Finally, tonight at the Salt Lake City library, there is a FREE screening of Fresh, the movie. I understand this is a companion/follow up type movie to Food, Inc. - a movement toward sustainable food. Here's the bit from the library:
Main Library
6:30 p.m.
Science Movie Night: Fresh
Is it REAL science or REEL science? Join us for free movie screenings followed by lively discussion with an expert in the field, cosponsored by the Utah Museum of Natural History.

Fresh (2009)
This documentary celebrates the farmers, thinkers, and business people across America who are reinventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture system into an industrial model and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for the future of our food and our planet. Join us for a panel discussion with Dave Bell of Bell Organic Gardens, Jorge Fierro of Rico Mexican Market, Christy Paulson of Slow Food Utah, and Julie Peck-Dabling of Salt Lake County's Urban Farming Initiative.
Unfortunately, I can't make this screening, but I want to try to have it shown at our school. If that doesn't work, who's up for a screening at our house? (private screenings start at $30).
