We got some for our wedding. Our porch swing sits right under them, so both our kids have spent hours staring fascinatedly at them. I'd have to vote "yes."

I can't help you with that cord, but a lot of my USB cables have the same ends on them, so I can use them on different equipment. The innards of the cables are the same, so if the ends match you can...

I got a 12. I knew I wasn't getting some of them quite right, because the lines between looked different (?) but my eyeballs were going to fall out if I kept at it.

My younger son is in a size 9.5 shoe. He was at the toes of his 8/9 crocs (three pair, grr) so I got him some 10/11's, which are pretty big on him but he seems to have adjusted quickly. He picked...

I got my first pocket knife for my eighth birthday. Like a PP, I'd be most worried about him accidentally (or sorta-on-purpose) taking it to school and showing it to someone. I like the idea of...

Yeesh. Pay them back ASAP and then refuse to take any more. That's awful.

We didn't do Waldorf for that reason. I don't think my older son's a genius, but I do know that he's reading perfectly competently and I doubt he would've been happy baking bread for the next two...

My older son does it, too. His little brother speaks in sentences, but not clearly, and I guess he was in the wants-to-be-a-baby camp too. Nothing like having one's expressive, articulate...

I'm the same way with mine. Cars are tools, not toys. My 4yo gets fussed at if he lets himself out of his seatbelt before I tell him to. My SIL used to let my nephews pretend to drive and crawl...

I don't like the new suits because when I first walk in the room I can't figure out whether they're girls or boys. Everyone has a rubber head, bug eyes, huge shoulders, and no body hair....

It's a bad diagnosis, especially with his prior health history, but he's been taking care of himself and it sounds like he has a lot of cheerleaders.
Try not to lose hope. My grandmother was dx'd...

I think I got mine at VS on sale. Oh, and ditto what the PP said about garterless thigh-highs - not only are they uncomfortable, you wind up with lumpy thighs, which was really not the look I was...

What service/phone? Try bitpim.org. If you have any computer savvy, it's a perfect way to make ringtones from whatever you want. I have my son laughing as my ringtone.

The article says the fish "thrive" in the warm water, so I doubt they're shocking them by putting them in there. And I would imagine they're changing the water between users. As long as they are,...

You can buy a cable lock at Lowe's for really cheap. They're the very same as the ones sold in the bike stores, but they have loops at either end and you just use your own lock. I think I paid $10...
