This hollowed out volcano is not going to decorate itself

I am trying to get my act together. I have an average sized apartment room wall. I want to use it to plan world domination! Well really the domination of my next few years of goals and tasks. Please give me cool or creative ideas for a way to have a huge display of multiple years of calendar, lists and reminders, and events and goals. The only catch is that I cannot repaint or damage the wall in a major way. Long-winded details inside. [more inside]

Kids Arts & Science Room

We have a spare room that we're turning into an Arts & Science room for the kids (13 year old girl and 8 year old boy). It's in a walk-out basement with a painted concrete floor and a window. We have some ideas but little knowledge in how to setup a room for them to create and explore. We have a cheap beginner's chemistry set, some art and craft supplies, and...that's about it. What ideas can we implement with the little expertise and money we have? [more inside]

Where can I find stickers that look like thought bubbles or speech bubbles?

Where can I find stickers that look like thought bubbles or speech bubbles? This is a good example of the shapes. The size needs to be big enough to allow one to write inside the bubble with a pen or a sharpie, and the stickiness must hold it to a large photo poster.
