I've been wracking my brains trying to remember the identity of this female folk singer from the 1980s-1990s. She made at least a few albums targeted at kids, incorporating many environmental themes. And I can't for the life of me remember even enough to do a proper Google search. Gah! [more inside]

I'm going to a costume party for Halloween. The theme is 80s and 90s cartoon characters. Help me find a costume that won't be expensive or challenging to move around in, but will be awesome. [more inside]

What kind of house plants were popular/fashionable in the past? I'm most interested in the 1950s/60s, but would like to know other decades as well. [more inside]

I am looking for photos of the Cambridge, MA area taken between 1950 and 1999. I am especially interested in the commercial areas along the current Red Line route (Porter/Harvard/Central/Kendall), and the industrial areas southeast of Central Square. If you happen to know of any repositories of offline photos, that would be cool too. Thanks!

Back before the internet, how long would it take for legal decisions to be published, and how quickly would a lawyer be able to find out about new decisions? I'm hoping for the recollections of some of you older lawyers, but primarily I would love to find a printed resource for this type of information.
I've been looking and looking and can't seem to find the info anywhere. I am looking at the late 80s-early 90s.
I've looked for law review articles, caselaw, and general internet info on this subject and can't find anything. If a lawyer relied on a case in 1989, how long after a case reversing it was decided would it be published?

Late 1980s or very early 1990s made for television science fiction mini-series. All I remember is that it involved some space ships that joined together to form something else, at least a couple of kids, possibly an abandoned/run-down space station or colony, and a mystery to be solved by flying all over the place. Like all such things I probably wouldn't enjoy it now, but would like to watch it again if possible.
