Trying to remember the title of a 3D spherical labyrinth game

For fans of the The Nemesis Factor and other complex physical puzzles: I'm trying to remember the name of a now out of print 3D spherical labyrinth. As I remember, the puzzle consisted of a clear globe, inside of which was a complicated three dimensional maze composed of slides and structures and other structures, through which the player would navigate a little metal ball. Any thoughts? [more inside]

Do I have to return this present?

EtiquetteFilter: A business partner's wife handed me a gift for my wife on my latest visit. Said business partner is from (and lives in) the Middle East, same goes for his wife. Their family background is muslim, though they are not really practicing it. I hardly know his wife (met her only twice) and both of them don't know my wife at all. What is the meaning of such a present? Should we give her a present in return? If so, should it be more or less costly than the one for my wife (they are wealthy, far more than I am).

Children's books with complicated pictures

For my son's 2nd birthday, I am looking for ideas for children's books with complicated pictures full of different objects. He adores Richard Scarry books where he can spend ages pointing out all the different things he can see in a scene. But I have had enough Richard Scarry for this lifetime. What other books have similarly rich, complex pictures?

Help me wrap and present delicious but frozen food.

This Christmas, I'm giving everyone the gift of delicious and healthy home-cooked meals, but I'm blanking on how to wrap and/or present them at the Christmas Eve festivities. Everything will be pre-frozen, which probably rules out putting them by the tree with the other gifts, and the only other solution I can think of is leaving them in my car and letting everyone take theirs on the way home, which is lame. There must be a better way. [more inside]
