Crafts that use a laminator?

I'm looking for ideas for crafts that use a laminator for my 8-year old daughter's birthday party this weekend. Although most of the guests will be girls, we will have two boys, so the activity should be of interest to both sexes. Many thanks for your help!

Documentaries to watch with pre-teens?

I'd love for my children (7, 8 and 12) to learn to like documentaries. Can you recommend some that would be good to watch together? Ideally streaming on Netflix or Amazon. I imagine there aren't that many out there suitable for that age group so I won't limit the topics.

Correct way to charge rechargeable devices (iPhone, laptop, toothbrush)?

I've just been told at the Apple store that it's a bad idea to keep the iPhone plugged into the power for long periods when fully charged, and that if possible I should really only charge it when it tells me to (ie. when the battery is almost dead). [more inside]

How to make each gift count at Christmas

My kids get so many holiday gifts these days that on Christmas day many of the new items are just tossed aside and only the shiniest given attention. I’m wondering if it would make more sense to stagger the unwrapping rather than let them open everything at the same time. I realize the unwrapping frenzy is part of the fun, but clearly receiving many gifts at once minimizes the value of the individual gifts. I don't come from a tradition of Christmas-time excess so I don't really know what this feels like to a kid. Scaling down is probably not an option, unfortunately.

How to give performance feedback on a very unpleasant colleague?

I just received a request for performance feedback from a manager at my company concerning an employee I've worked with in the past year whom I did not like at all. I am uncomfortable telling the manager what I really think. Before I started working with this person I was warned by others to expect a difficult relationship. [more inside]

Can I contest a thousand-dollar parking ticket?

Last week I was visiting San Francisco and using a borrowed car. I got a $996 fine for parking briefly in a handicap spot in front of a store on Hayes St. The spot was marked in blue on the ground, and there was a sign in front of it, but the sign was obscured by a tree. I didn't know blue indicated the spot was off-limits, I live in MA. I saw the sign too late, and it indicated the minimum fine was $250. [more inside]

Looking for a good online TV guide

As of not very long ago we have an expensive cable TV subscription and a little time to watch it, but no patience for lowest-common-denominator entertainment (we're in the US). Is there a website or even blog that can give us the lowdown on the week's and day's programming that is worth watching? We're interested in smart, thought-provoking documentaries, news-programmes and critically acclaimed movies/TV shows, especially independent and foreign ones.

Will dry cleaning hurt my cashmere coat?

I have a 15-year old black cashmere coat (women's) from Kiton. I've never had it dry-cleaned. It's in very good shape and doesn't appear dirty but I'm wondering if it can be freshened up. I worry that the dry cleaner might damage it, for example by flattening the hair when pressing it.

Please recommend apps/games to improve reading skills

Are there any iPhone/iPad apps or games that would help a 10-year old with her reading? When she reads out loud she does really well for a few minutes but quickly starts to skip words or guess them rather than trying to read what's on the page. She loves computer games so I was wondering if a reading game might motivate her.

Gift for World of Warcraft-obsessive

World of Warcraft-filter: what would be a good gift for a WoW-obsessed friend in Europe (I'm in the US)? I don't know much beyond the fact that he's been playing it for the past five years and has recently bought a new keyboard for it. I want it to be a surprise so can't really ask him what he already has. Are there any fun T-shirts out there, perhaps? Thanks!

Can I get a non-kosher Edible Arrangement to someone who keeps kosher?

Would someone who keeps kosher be able to eat a non-kosher Edible Arrangement? The extent of his keeping kosher is that he will order only plain salad with no dressing if he needs to eat at a non-kosher restaurant (for business, for example). At home his family has two separate kitchens. I would like to get him a plain fruit, non-chocolate dipped Edible Arrangement, but the only facility that can prepare it is not kosher certified.
