Help this young child get nutrition

best baby formula? ... the child is seven months old and just stopping breast-feeding. Several formulas have been tied -- including Similiac, GoodStart and Enfimil -- without success, as the baby does not like them and spits them out. Any suggestions on a nourishing formula? What should be tried? Is this just a transition situation? Should we keep trying the above formulas or go a different route? Thx.

Is the ultimate kitchen really called a "kitchen" anymore?

I'm doing a research project where I'm trying to envision the 'kitchen of the future' - the way to organise your kitchen/eating/etc area so that in 5, 10, and 20 years that it will work well for a busy family with kids. We do so much in our kitchens! A lot of people already consider it their homes' "command centre", where they spend a lot of their time and where people congregate. Help me out (please!) and let me know: - What do you do in your kitchen/eating area? - What do you wish you could do? Better, more easily, or at all? - What would your ultimate kitchen have - as far as setup and 'stuff' - to make it the ultimate centre of your home?

Music appreciation for home schoolers

I'm looking for resources for a home school music appreciation curriculum. I'd like to start at 'the beginning' (what is music, what are its origins) and work my way up to present day music. The age range is 7-9 years old. I would prefer not to buy a package, but if there is one that is particularly good, I'm not totally against the idea.

How much does getting a laminate floor moisture test cost?

I have laminate floor installed in my condo. We have swelling and warping in various locations, so we filed a warranty claim. As part of the fulfillment process they have requested that a chunk of the floor gets uninstalled and sent to a laboratory for moisture testing. If it turns out that it's our fault we have to pay for the testing. Does anyone have any idea how much something like that costs? If we wanted to dispute their findings, where do I find a lab to do the same testing?
