We live in southwestern Ohio, and have these plants (photos at the link) coming up all around the lawn. They vaguely resemble catnip or some other mint-variety, but the leaves have no scent. They come up quickly and bloom quickly as well. What are they?
I need between 50 and 100 ID card lanyards, and ID cards, preferably all of them looking different. It's for one person looking like a scarecrow of IDs, he's helplessly overloaded by lanyards and cards. So they all have to be a bit different. [more inside]
Help me track down the manufacturer who made my vase & jug. I picked up the vase in a local charity shop a few years back.

I'm trying to identify a sample from the first few minutes of this album. The sample occurs at 0:27, 0:47, 1:02, and so forth. It's the muted organ/electric piano chords; one chord played 4 times, followed by another played once. I know it sounds kinda generic, but I swear that this is a sample from a jazz or R&B song that I recorded off the radio in the mid-late 80s; in the original that second chord follows the same pattern as the first. This is driving me bonkers. Help!
Purchase of a cheap mask & snorkel has shown me that the surf zone of east coast beaches is an ecosystem chick full of crabs & fish & more- totally amazing! Within 2 feet of shore (in surf, not in tide pools) we recently found tiny puffer fish, pipefish & one mystery fish - what is this fish? pic 1 pic 2 (Found all over beaches of Martha's Vineyard. It's about 3 inches long, has wing-like fins that it uses to scoot along the sandy bottom. Some were all light brown, some had a lot more white. Pics look weird as the fish is inside an old 2 liter soda bottle.)

I saw a music video this weekend featuring a girl with longish blondish hair riding on a toy riding horse underwater, possibly in a pool. I was really chill, instrumental possibly. It was in a youtube playlist with similar types of music: sleep party people, gold panda, clams casino, youth, grimes, tycho etc. Please, oh please, help me find it!!!

A definite long shot, but I'm looking for the names of two of my favourite children's books from the '80's, these are picture books that were read to me about 25 years ago, and I'd love to find them for nostalgia's sake but also to read to my own children. The first was about a little boy who follows a clown into his television, I think maybe at the boy's bedtime. The second was about a boy and a monkey who go on adventures together, maybe to space, and I think there were trap doors or other neat ways of traveling. The illustrator of the book included these great doodles and tiny squiggles on every page (within the pictures not all over the text), and that's what I remember most, the great illustrations that were really intricate.
A few days ago, as I drove down I-69, I saw two semi trucks heading in the opposite direction. Each transported a long, narrow metal object. I would estimate each object was the length of three semi truck trailers. It mostly resembled a knife blade in color and shape - something like a chef's slicing blade. It seemed to look serrated toward what would resemble the tip of the knife. What the heck were they transporting?

What type of tree is this? I'm sure it's quite common, as they're found all over Chicago. There were no old leaves on the ground nearby, and I'm useless at identifying leafless deciduous trees unless they're white and peeling. Thanks.
I was just going over our flight info-my husband and I and our two adult daughters are flying out to Texas to my son's wedding. I just noticed that our travel agent used my younger daughter's maiden name instead of her married name (she is separated but not divorced.) The travel agent is calling me back in a bit but how screwed are we? [more inside]
