Caveat - I don't know anything about square foot gardening, and my experience is with the wet west coast. As the PP pointed out, the potatoes need more space if you want a decent sized harvest. Can you make a bed along the south side between the watermelon and the pumpkin? Or you could try a barrel. The broccoli will need more space - at least as much as the cauliflower. The peas and beans will need the trellis down the middle of their plot, with a row...

As everyone else has said - don't give up. But also don't work yourself up about having a hospital birth. I had a home birth all planned with great midwife support, and then my blood pressure skyrocketed when labour started. The midwife said, sorry, we're going to the hospital (fair enough - it was alarmingly high) So I ended up in a hospital 2 hours and a ferry ride away without the midwife (she had 3 other clients due and couldn't come), but it really wasn't that...

There is a far more fundamental biological reason - humans like symmetrical faces, even babies have a preference for them. Why? Because symmetry is related to genetic health (esp. strength of immune system) and we respond to that, generally without being aware of it. So kids with a mixed background are going to look cuter to us because of that, but skin colour and hair are far easier to be aware off so that's what is commented on. On the other hand is how a...

Sorry it makes you upset! It sounds like a subject that you are sensitive about. Speaking as a biologist, mixing genetics from different races is great for the kids - better immune systems, better genetics, and darned cute looks. And its not racist to point this out if there are no disparaging comments about either/both/mixing races. Really, there are differences between all the different races on this planet (can't deny that!) but no race is inherently superior to...

If you don't mind buying the bed over a period of time, you could go to Ikea and buy the mattress & slats. Put on floor and use. The advantage is that the baby can't fall far, and you can buy the frame at a later point when finances permit. We bought our latex mattress over a year ago and still haven't bothered with a frame ;-)

Here are a few issues DH mentioned: Pick the platform, then pick someone who is familiar with it. Don't use a developer who has a custom/in-house ecommerce solution. The security wont be up to standard for credit card payments. Also, no shared servers (also a security issue) Magento, if you have really ambitious enterprise-level plans. http://www.magentocommerce.com/partners/find/solution-partners/ Shopify if you're going for a smaller shop. They do...
