Trail a bike opinions?

I would love a recommendation on a trail-a-bike for my 4 year old. Looking around, the ones at REI are $200 for Novara to $275 (for one that was instore only). At Target, they have a Wee Ride for $81 and then they had a schwinn instore for $169. Does anyone have an opinion or experience with any of these? We are just going to be doing street and bike path rides for now. I am leaning towards the Novara but that may just be because I can't stop myself from spending money at REI these days...

What TV show was this?

A boy buys an earring at an old junk shop, either he can't afford both or the guy sells it to him for a great price because there's no pair for it. Once he start wearing it though, trash becomes attracted to him. He ends up taking refuge (I think) in a phone booth and the trash falls away when he takes out the earring. My question, what show was this? [more inside]

Moms who work far away from home

Any married Moms out there took a job in another city or state because you need a job and there was nothing available in your profession locally? I am assuming that you come home on weekends. What are the ages of your kids? How does family life work? How is it working out financially--renting a house/apartment, paying for two households--is it worth it? How does the hubby deal with it?

Why don't adults enjoy dizziness?

Why don't adults enjoy dizziness like kids do? When I was a kid I remember thinking adults were boring for not enjoying the feeling of dizziness, and I vowed to always enjoy it :) Now as an adult, I can't stand it, and feel like throwing up. It seems most adults (if not all) feel the same way. Why is that?

How can my wife help these rural middle-class kids think they're from the ghetto?

My wife is teaching an after-school dance club for 7 year-olds. A few boys have enrolled and want to learn some street dance moves. What hip-hop tracks could she use? They need to be recent UK hits and, obviously, not sweary/rude/all about violence. Our community is about as far from inner-city street culture as it gets, so their posturing is hilarious, but she'd like to indulge them - without upsetting the head/parents/the girls.
