What are these metal thingies?

My daughter bought a second-hand sewing machine, a Singer Tradition, which is apparently only a couple of years old. Included in the accessories was a small ziplock bag which held six metal thingies, three of one sort and three of the other. We are baffled as to what they are. [more inside]

Name my teenage daughter's (hobby which is turning into a) business.

She paints sandshoes and calico bags with original designs. She's 15, this thing just started growing by itself, she's never aggressively marketed her creations. It might provide a bit of spending money or she could be the next Collette Dinnigan, she really doesn't care because she wants to be a forensic psychologist, but she wants a catchy business name to start a Facebook page, maybe get business cards, etc. [more inside]

Can I eat this? (I'm going to anyway.)

I marinated four chicken breasts late yesterday, the recipe says to marinate for at least half an hour, but no longer than two hours. I accidentally left two breasts in the marinade overnight in the fridge. I will be cooking them for dinner tonight regardless, but should I expect a drastically different result because of the extra 12 hours in the marinade? [more inside]

Long-shot-arama: 13 years ago, I read a poem at my daughter's christening and then promptly lost the piece of paper I'd read it from. It was all about the things I wished she would have in her life, and I'm 98% sure it ended with "but most of all, I wish you love". Ring any bells? [more inside]
