Bloomers! Edutainment
Bio
My name is Cynthia Wylie and I am the creator of Bloomers Edutainment, LLC. Bloomers! teaches and instills a passion in Early Learners (Pre-K, Kindergarten, and 1st graders), how to garden and grow plants and a love of nature. Bloomers! consists of three worlds: an online virtual world (with a quest, minigames, friends, etc.) which makes it very appealing to youngsters even though it is educational and all the games teach a plant science lesson! It also includes a Schoolyard Program that puts free know + grow Gardens (by Earthbox) to schools. And it includes a Backyard Program that actually incentivizes kids to go outside and play!

Just to tell you a little about myself, I grew up on a farm and my undergraduate degree is in Agriculture. I received my graduate degree from Georgetown University in Economics where I was awarded a full fellowship. I am the cofounder of two other successful companies: a toy company and a clothing company. For our toy company, I was named one of the entrepreneurs of the year by Entrepreneur Magazine in 1990. I sold my clothing company in 2008 to our Japanese distributor where we had 18 stores. But with Bloomers! I go back to my roots. It is my passion project. It is my dream.

Man v. Potato

Since I am in the business of teaching about gardening and nature to young children, I love recounting stories of Cleve Backster and the Secret Life of Plants at parties. Amazingly most of my peers are unaware of the experiments Backster performed with plants back in the 60's and 70's that for a time revolutionized how humans regarded plants. I only qualify…

OVERWATERING

OVERWATERING 

“Patience and fortitude conquer all things.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Patience is not one of my virtues. 

Last week I planted a bunch of seeds.  It’s been hot here in California and even though it was still December, I felt some measure of spring fever.  I wanted to check on our Bloomers! know + grow Seeds and make sure that they sprout okay…

Dear Wylie,

I'm sorry to contact you unannounced through this medium. I am Kocak Ahmet a citizen of Ghana, presently, Managing Director Barclay's Bank of Ghana. I have in my bank a big amount of money that belongs to a customer Daniel B.Wylie, who happen to have the same name as yours and who has your country in his file as his place of origin, made a fixed deposit for 36 calendar months, valued at $8 ,400,000.00 (Eight Million Four Hundred Thousand United States Dollars). Meanwhile, the fund is now without any claim because Daniel died in a deadly earthquake in China in 2008 . I want your cooperation so as to make the bank send you the fund as the beneficiary (next of kin) to the fund.

Since the last quarter of 2009 until today, the management of my bank have been looking for a means to reach his family so as to ascertain if he is interested in rolling over the Deposit or have the contract sum withdrawn but all effort have proved abportive because Mr Daniel never married or had children prior to his death. This transaction will be of a great mutual assistance to us. I am therefore, seeking your cooperation to present you as the SOLE BENEFICIARY so that my bank will transfer the fund to you.

I am not a greedy person, I'm suggesting we share the fund equal, 50/50% as my share will assist me to start a charity organization to help the poor and also start a business of my own. Let me know your mind on this and please do treat this information as TOP SECRET. Kindly contact me via my Personal Email Address (kocakahmet95@yahoo.com) or you send me your email address for the details. At the receipt of your reply, I will give you details of the transaction, a copy of the Deposit Certificate of the fund and the Incorporation Certificate of the company that generated the fund. Perhaps, if this proposal offends your moral and ethical values, do accept my apology.

Thank you in anticipation of your positive cooperation.

Best regards,

Kocak Ahmet..

Thank you Suz.  I actually uploaded my picture and asked someone to be a friend! Ha, ha.  I was going to offer a free 3-month subscription code to Bloomers! Island for C&NN members. What do you think?
