Will they let her on the plane?

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]

Where can I purchase narrow tape with custom printing on it?

I've got a lot of stuff. People like to borrow my stuff. And they sometimes forget whose stuff it is and I never get it back! I had an idea to custom print my name, email, and phone number on narrow tape (perhaps vinyl based, similar to electrician's tape). Then, I can affix this tape to things that I loan out so that they're easily tracked back to me. I tried looking around at various shops online, but the options are overwhelming, and they seem to be geared toward packing tape and business applications. All I need is one or two narrow rolls, not an entire box of the stuff! Has anyone done anything like this that can share some of your expertise with me?

Spider Identification

I recently ran across this little lady on my garden hose in my backyard in Milwaukee, WI. She moved very quickly when she wanted to, but mostly just tried to stay out of the sun. I snapped a couple pictures. She had a small white spot on top of her abdomen.

Film/TV Filming Locations Identification

I have some screenshots from a television show, and I would like to post them somewhere so that someone could identify the specific filming location for me (they weren't shot on a set, but on location; the Angeles National Forest area in So. California specifically). I've tried doing this in some Flickr groups but it's been fruitless. Any suggestions of some sites or online communities that could help me out? Thanks in advance!

What if you lost all your ID?

If you were somehow stupid enough to lose every piece of identification you had--driver's license, green card, social security card, foreign passport and birth certificate, student ID, everything--how would you go about starting to recover it? You seem to need two pieces of ID (or at least one) to get any given ID replaced.
