This Sunday during the Super Bowl a commercial will air for the film.

OFFICIAL BOILERPLATE:
 
Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great wizard but into a better man as well.
 
“Oz The Great and Powerful” is produced by Joe Roth, with screen story by Mitchell Kapner and screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire. Grant Curtis, Palak Patel, Josh Donen and Philip Steuer are serving as executive producers. “Oz The Great and Powerful” opens in U.S. theaters on March 8, 2013.

Why I chose Campus Book Rentals for my college kids

The month before my daughter began attending college we ordered all her required books from the college book store. The invoice amount was over $1000. Add that to all the other expenses and I thought, holy cow this is going to be more than I thought. Science books are expensive. For three years, that's six semesters of bookstore invoices like the first one.

One day near the beginning of her last year of college my daughter shared a conversation she had  with a classmate and she said she rented her text books. What? Rented books?  We look into renting college text books and the savings were unbelievable. We saved well over half of what we were paying buying them from the bookstore. Just think of the amount of money we could have saved for six semesters. I am so glad we know now to rent college books since daughter number 2 is now in her first semester. Campus Book Rentals offers Free Shipping and returns which is great because books can be heavy and expensive to ship.

If you have a college student or a soon to be college student-rent their college text books!!!

Why Rent College Text Books from Campus Book Rentals?

save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
free shipping and free return shipping
may highlight in the textbooks
flexible renting periods
a donation is made to Operation Smile with each textbook rented






and that's not all- you can even rent the text books you own to other students.You earn money each time your book is rented from RentBack.com which is part of Campus Book Rentals. I remember paying full price for books when I went to college and at the end of the semester during final exams I sold back books that were not in my major. I did not get much cash back from selling a handful of books back, not even enough to cover the price of one book I bought that semester. Rent Back is a super good idea! I Wish it was around in my college days.





Campus Book Rentals web site is easy to use. As soon as you go to the site there is a search bar you can type in what book you are looking for by name, ISBN number or author, even key words. They also have live customer support and flexible renting periods. Which is good, you don't want to have to return the text book before the semester ends. Head over and check them out!

Disclosure: By writing this post I will be sent a gift code for Campus Book Rentals. The comments and views are my own.

Martie Duncan partners with Food Safe Familes Campaign. Keep your Super Bowl food safe and yummy.

Martie Duncan of MartieKnowsParties.com and Season 8 of Food Network Star Star is partnering with the USDA, FDA, CDC and the Ad Council’s Food Safe Families campaign to remind you to make food safety a big priority on game day!

If you are putting out a bowl of nuts, or other foods that people tend to grab a handful of,  put a spoon in the bowl so everyone is not putting their hands into the bowl. Keep those germs at bay!  Always put out serving utensil for people to use. It keeps the germ population down, and sticky hands from getting all over your furniture too.

I  keep a roll of paper towels in my downstairs bathroom at all times along with a foaming hand soap.  (I read somewhere that foaming hand soap covers more of your skin) I spray a disinfectant in the trash can, door nobs, sink, all around the toilet and even the light switch.I also keep a roll of paper towels by the kitchen sink along with a foaming hand soap so guest can wash up when ever they wish.



Super Bowl parties often involve finger foods, a lot of people sharing communal dishes, and treats that are left out for long period of time—all which can be a recipe for disaster. The Food Safe Families campaign is offering tips on FoodSafety.gov to help you throw a winning Super Bowl Party.

Here are several of Martie’s amazing Super Bowl recipes and tips that you may want to try for the big day:

Emmy Rossum's Newest CD "Sentimental Journey" tops my Valentine's Day Gift list

Emmy Rossum's Sentimental Journey will be released on January 29, 2013. She sings beautifully in this collection of classic songs. It truly is a sentimental journey listening to these songs again, and she sings them so lovely. The first song on the CD is Sentimental Journey and it's great!  I love all the soft music, the instruments and her voice in the entire CD.  Summer Wind is so good!  I'm not sure I could pick a favorite song...every song is wonderful and heartfelt.

 
 You'll find yourself singing along to Many Tears Ago, I'm sure we all have someone we had tears for and have picked ourselves up and moved on-she sings- cried you outta my heart, and many tears ago. There are twelve songs on the CD, each song for each month. She actually planned it that way. The song is either about the season or some thing about the season that brings out and emotion. 




The CD is perfect for dinner music, date night, or the drive home from work, or just for some me time. Share the music with your girls night out, or girls night in with food and drinks.

Sentimental Journey tops my list for a Valentine's Day gift (hint hint)


 
 

Sentimental Journey, releasing on January 29th, is a collection of classic covers that takes us through the American Songbook. You can find the album on  itunes and on Amazon go to  Sentimental Journey

Follow her on Twitter too!

Sentimental Journey Track Listing:
  1. Sentimental Journey” (Les Brown, Ben Homer, Arthur Green)
  2. The Object Of My Affection” (Pinky Tomlin)
  3. “I’m Looking Over A Four Leaf Clover “(Mort Dixon, Harry M. Woods)
  4. These Foolish Things (Remind Me Of You)” (Eric Maschwitz, Jack Strachey)
  5. “(I’ll Be With You) In Apple Blossom Time” (Albert Von Tilzer, Neville Fleeson)
  6. Summer Wind” (Heinz Meier, Johnny Mercer)
  7. “Many Tears Ago” (Winfield Scott)

On Sentimental Journey, the multi-talented actress and singer brings her stellar voice to songs popularized by some of the most beloved artists of the last century.
Emmy's 12-song 'passion project' is an emotional musical journey, with each song representing a month in the year.

"Each song needed to either lyrically or emotionally reflect the corresponding month," Emmy explained. "Some songs were obvious fits, like Summer Wind for June, and Pretty Paper for December. Others songs were less literal fits. I chose Nobody Knows You (When You're Down and Out) for September because, to me, the plaintive melody and lyric emotionally reflect the cold weather creeping in and the sense of melancholy we can get in the fall months."

Rossum is also an acclaimed actress who currently stars in the Showtime series Shameless with William H. Macy. She also stars alongside Emma Thompson and Viola Davis in the upcoming feature film Beautiful Creatures, which hits theaters on February 13th


 Disclosure:  I participated in this campaign for One2One Network. I received a free copy of the CD to facilitate my review. By posting, I am eligible for incentives. All opinions stated are my own.

20 Mule Team Borax Uses and Giveaway

How many cleaning products do you have under your sink or cleaning closet? Go ahead I'll wait until you count them. How many products did you count?


This is what I found in my house:
Bathroom:
toilet cleaner
shower and tub cleaner
sink cleaner
counter top wipes
glass cleaner
Kitchen:
dish soap
dishwasher soap
glass cleaner
stainless steel cleaner
multi surface cleaner

Laundry Room:

How many products do I really need to clean all those area?
not that many!!!  Make the switch to 20 Mule Team Borax and use less products and spend less cash.  Where can you buy Borax?  I pick up mine at Target, Wegmans, WalMart. Check your grocery store or  stores like these in your area.


20 Mule Team Borax has been cleaning household since 1891
It is 100 % Natural
Borax is the common name for sodium tetraborate, a naturally occurring substance produced by the perpetual evaporation of seasonal lakes. (never knew that)
Nothing is added to Borax, there are no phosphates, chlorine or other additive chemicals.

I've been adding 20 Mule Team Borax to my laundry for several years. It naturally softens hard water which protects your detergent from the ions in hard water, that makes your detergent able to do it's job.

How to do the laundry:
Add 1/2 cup of 20 Mule Team Borax to every load along with your regular detergent. I happen to like Purex detergent also made by the same company as 20 Mule Team Borax.  I started adding Borax to the wash to take care of musty smelling towels. It works like, well a team. It also removes stains so you can get rid of that bottle too.
