Happy National Pet Day! Here at EP Minerals, we are big animal lovers, and many of us own dogs, cats, horses and a myriad of other pets, and consider them part of the family. We’re sure you probably do, too! And we want to keep them as happy and healthy as possible. That means keeping them bug-free.

Wow! Opening day is today! It's crazy to have it in March this year! Here at EP Minerals and EP Engineered Clays, we love baseball! Go Dodgers! And Giants, and Nats, Tigers, Angels and our hometown Reno Aces. I think I’ve covered all the favorite teams here in our office. Our inside sales team is such big fans of the Dodgers that they even painted one of their walls Dodger blue! I'm bringing in a can of Giants orange this weekend!

Picture this. A hot, sunny day. A perfectly clear swimming pool. A drink with an umbrella in your hand. Does it get any better than that? Well, maybe it does.
We've known for decades that diatomaceous earth (DE) swim pool filter powder produces the clearest, sparkling clean pools. But that powdery DE has also been known for being messy and hard to handle. That can put a damper on pool care. Who wants to clean up powdery white stuff around your beautiful swimming pool? Well, we took that problem to heart, and guess what? Problem solved! Our R&D team put on their super smart innovation hats and, voila - EP Minerals now has a patent-pending LOW DUST diatomaceous earth filter powder - CelaPool!

In the EP Minerals R&D Lab
In an average day, you probably come in contact with over 100 products that have been manufactured or processed using industrial minerals. Industrial minerals are defined as non-metallic minerals produced from natural sources. Science and technology are playing an ever increasing role in new product innovation in the world of industrial minerals.
Here at EP Minerals, we mine and manufacture products from diatomaceous earth (DE), perlite, and clays. These incredibly high-quality minerals are used in an extremely broad range of applications in every day life. Without these minerals, a vast range of products would simply not exist. Surprised?

Thanks to Emily Bell and VinePair for the tequila information.
Happy National Margarita Day! So you know that our diatomaceous earth filter aid filters the world's best beers, wines, whiskeys, brandys, sakes and a host of other alcoholic beverages, right? What about the world's largest producer of tequila? Yep, bingo. DE filters tequila, too. It's a great day to celebrate this made-in-Mexico drink, and learn a little more about tequila and diatomaceous earth filtration!

Flynn, the Bichon Frise, won Best of Show at Westminster (Photo: MarketWatch)
A cute little cotton ball won the Best in Show award at the 142nd Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show yesterday. Flynn, the little white powder puff pup, also known as aka GCHP CH Belle Creek's All I Care About Is Love, was picked over six other champs including a popular pug named Biggie and Ty the giant schnauzer. We also had a Carson City, NV canine celebrity do well this year. Adele, a Spinone Italiano owned by Carson City Deputy Director of Emergency Management Stacey Belt, won best dog out of 12 in her breed. Yay Adele!
Adele, the Spinone Italiano from Carson City, NV won the Best of Breed class.
Now that Flynn the puff ball is a celebrity, he has a busy schedule. Today includes visits to the morning TV news shows, a steak lunch at Sardi's, a trip to the top of the Empire State Building, and he's been invited for a walk-on part at a Broadway hit "Kinky Boots." I tell you. The life of a dog. Flynn's next plan is to retire, so he can just be a dog. He loves belly rubs and rolling in the snow. He's probably allowed to jump on the bed. My guess is he doesn’t have fleas. But if he did, I’m sure his owner would want an organic insecticide that's really effective on fleas. Hey, we have a product like that!
