SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium will transport you into the amazing underwater world. Come nose to nose with sharks and prepare for astonishingly close views of everything from humble starfish and seahorses to graceful rays. To get any closer you’d have to get wet! Are you a Shark lover or Seahorse fanatic? Perhaps it’s the graceful rays or the clever Octopus that you love the most. Maybe you simply can’t decide! Here at SEA LIFE Kansas City you can make up your mind and see them all – from the curious and the rescued to the rare and the enigmatic. And you’ll be able to get closer to them than ever before.

Become a Blogger in 7 Days Online Workshop

Screenshot 2015-04-27 09.10.01
Have you always wanted to start a blog or website, but weren’t quite sure how? Maybe you’ve looked at online tutorials and found them too overwhelming to even start? It’s time to quit looking and start creating! The Become a Blogger in 7 Days online workshop will get your site up and running in as little as a week. That’s right- a WEEK!

Become a Blogger in 7 Days is geared towards absolute beginners. The written lessons are packed with screenshots and will walk you through each step of creating your site. Unlike other beginner classes, Become a Blogger in 7 Days will teach you how to set up your site to leave room for maximum growth and monetization.

In addition to the written lessons, you’ll receive access to an exclusive Facebook group for 30 days. Why just 30 days? I’ve learned over the years that there are two things that will push you to succeed: time and money. If you take a free class, do you place as much emphasis on it? Of course not. The same goes with time. By creating the limits, you’ll work much faster and put more of an effort into it.

The Facebook group is a place for you to ask questions, receive assistance, talk out any issues you may have, and receive support from people going through the exact same thing that you are.

So, what are we going to cover in Become a Blogger in 7 Days? Everything you need to know to get your site up and running. This class is based on setting up a self-hosted WordPress blog, and we’ll also go over how to use it to create a static website. The lessons include:

  • Assessing Your Expectations
  • Basic Terminology
  • Choosing Your Domain Name
  • Purchasing Hosting
  • Setting Up Your Site
  • Creating Your Header
  • Installing Plugins
  • Creating Menus
  • Customizing Your Site

Each lesson has a short assignment that will help you grow your site and prepare for the next lesson.

What you’ll need to get started:

  • A computer and internet access (you won’t be able to do this from a tablet or phone)
  • At least an hour a day to devote to each lesson
  • In addition to the class registration fee, you will have to pay for one year of hosting and your domain name (around $72).

This class will run from May 4th-10th and is limited to just 25 students! If you cannot complete every lesson that week, don’t worry. The Facebook group will remain open until June 4th and you’ll have access to all of the lessons and information until then.  You can also elect to purchase an optional 60 day membership to the group so that you have a place to ask your questions.

When you register, please make sure and enter the name you use on Facebook, along with the email address you use to log in.  This will allow me to invite you to the group where you’ll receive all of your lessons.  You will receive a response within 24-48 hours of registering.  If you have any trouble with registration, please email me at

Beech Nut Recall Information


There has been an important voluntary recall of a specific Beech Nut baby food this morning.  A small piece of glass was reported in a single jar of Stage 2 Sweet Potatoes and Chicken, prompting the recall of the entire batch.

We have initiated a voluntary recall for our Classics Stage 2 Sweet Potato & Chicken following a single report of a small glass piece found in a jar of the product. Outside of this single report, we have no indication that any other jar of our Classics Stage 2 Sweet Potato & Chicken is affected, but as a company of parents and families we are acting with an abundance of caution.

The quality and safety of our products is our number one priority. We know we have not met the expectations of parents who rely on Beech-Nut for quality nutrition for their babies and toddlers in this case, and for that we apologize.

Beech Nut is urging you to check your jars for the following information:

The recalled product is in a 4oz glass jar marked “DEC 2016” and includes product numbers “12395750815” through “12395750821” on the cap. It bears the establishment number “P-68A” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

If you have one of these jars, you are urged to return to the place of purchase for a refund or exchange.

You can view full details of the recall at the Beechnut website.

Amazon Dash Button: Instant Ordering with the Push of a Button

amazon dash

I’m not quite really sure how to take this, but I thought I’d give you guys a heads up.  I’ve seen several early April Fool’s jokes, which leaves me a bit skeptical, but this one seems pretty intriciate.

Amazon has opened up invitation requests for the new Amazon Dash Button.  This button can be linked to several consumable products and placed anywhere in your home so that you can press it and instantly create an order when you see you’re running low.  Stick it next to the toilet so you never run out of toilet paper, in the laundry room to avoid last minute detergent trips, and even in the pantry!

Here’s a list of all of the products that you can link it to: Amazon Dash Button Eligible Products

You can request an invitation here: Amazon Dash Button Invitation
