Three Saturday afternoons to appreciate YOU!

Happy Friday!!!

If you didn't catch it from Facebook and Twitter statuses... Here's a clip of the CTV Canada AM piece that Ecojot was featured in.... I'm not able to embed it... But just click here to view or click on the image below :) It was definitely great press! Thank you to Melissa Thibodeau for the link!

With the world economy where it's at, I am not a believer in the concept of protectionism. However I do like how encourages consumers to really inquire what it is they're buying... Where is it coming from? A sweatshop-free environment? What is it made from? Is it truly green? As I frequently mention, there is so much greenwashing going on with being eco-friendly being very popular and marketable... Sometimes it is hard to tell. Something may appear recycled, but not at all... So beware and eco-conscious consumers ;D

So my sister is in town again for a little over a week before she starts class in Michigan. It's nearly noon, and as a typical teen, she's still sleeping! I suppose one must enjoy their summer vacation while it's still here =p She's actually going to help put together a little Ecojot project I'm working on that involves some fun video editing... Pat happens to be a little video editing star, so I'm excited to see the results!

So speaking of projects (okay, not the best segway, but I try...)
Candy-- I finally saw "Julie & Julia" with my sister and good friend Amanda yesterday! Loved it! In fact, I miss cooking French cuisine... I called France home last year, and I sure do miss it! Ordered a copy of "How to Master the Art of French Cooking" last night... Hehe. I bet that book has seen a resurgence!

I still intend to read Julie & Julia (which I will borrow from the library)... I know this sounds rather odd, but I prefer to see a movie first and then read the book. I know it's usually the reverse for most, but for me, I'd rather watch the movie, and then read the book to expand the details of a story. I find when I read a book first, I usually get quite frustrated that the movie doesn't give it justice... So I am also doing to same with "The Time Traveler's Wife" which a friend has already loaned me. A bit odd perhaps ;)

Have you seen the trailer for Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana's new flick opening today? Click here for a peek.

Finally as per my headline.... three dates to mark on your calendar... I am hosting three Ecojot Fans Appreciation Afternoons...
