Under the blue button is my list of baby basics. A no-nonsense list of what to get for the baby, with a "my favorites" section and even a section of things you don't need. A very basic list, compiled over the years, of practical, useful products.

Below are my favorite links to great products.

The Bee Wrangler:
A swarm of bees moved into the wall of our house and since Bees are slowly vanishing, I could not have them exterminated. It took Jennifer 4 hours, removing and collecting the hive. The estimated 30000-50000 Bees now live in Alvin, TX near Jennifer's home. It is not every day you save 30.000 lives and get 20 lbs of honey in the process. A fascinating day with an amazing lady who has dedicated her life to Bees. Call her if you need Bees relocated around Houston, TX.
Don't use an exterminator!
