Blurb.com is offering greater control over the publishing process to businesses and professionals (like photographers). Here’s a press release with the details. I’ve used LuLu.com for self-publishing but Blurb is definitely flashier — perhaps it’s worth checking out if I get into book publishing for clients (or myself).

This blog post on EverydayWoman.tv says that more single women are choosing to become single mothers. For various reasons, these women long to be mothers but aren’t waiting for Mr. Right or even settling for Mr. Okay. Most are educated; some even affluent, but they have never married and don’t plan to anytime soon, if at all. Although some mention apprehension and guilt about raising fatherless children, most embrace their status and find support in other ways.
So, how do you feel about single women becoming mothers by choice? Sound off in the comments at EverydayWoman.tv …

Would you pay $35 for a movie ticket? Some investors are banking on it. Some companies have partnered to bring a luxury cinema called Village Roadshow Gold Class Cinemas to 50 locations nationwide over the next five years.
The luxury theaters feature reclining armchair seats with footrests, digital projection and a lounge and bar serving cocktails and appetizers, a concierge service and valet parking. And forget overpriced popcorn and soda. These theaters push items like pricey sushi and wine (for extra $$$ of course).
The first two venues are in South Barrington, a suburb of Chicago, and the Seattle suburb of Redmond in October. Others are Fairview, Texas, near Dallas-Fort Worth, and Scottsdale, Ariz.
Investors aren’t deterred from forging ahead with their plans in a recession. “Entertainment has long been shown to be recession-proof,” the article says.
I would say that’s probably true!
