Inspired by European, vintage, and modern design trends, Milieu's design services guide room-dwellers toward updated and personalized interior styles. The re-accessorize and e-design packages use phone and online consultation. The former package crafts a fully accessorized room plan based on project budget and scope, potentially offering product suggestions for soft goods such as pillows and rugs along with plans for lighting, small tables, and careful placement of neon octopi. A completely personalized design scheme characterizes the e-design package, as Milieu uses user-provided room measurements to arrive at a floor plan and recommend furniture, wall décor, and paint colors as well as soft goods and lighting.
The pop-punk pranksters of Bowling for Soup make fun music, funny music, and nothing in between. With their millions-selling catalog of irascible pop nuggets, Bowling for Soup proves why the class clown always gets the girl. Since the goofball quartet broke out of Texas onto the international scene in the mid '90s, they've collected a loyal fan base with their knack for infectious hooks. Best known for hits such as the Grammy-nominated “Girl All the Bad Guys Want” and “1985," the human Alfred E. Neumans continue to fuel invisible pogo sticks with their recent efforts Sorry for Partyin’ and Fishin’ for Woos.
While living the life of a peripatetic juggling duo in 1970s Europe, Paul Binder and Michael Christensen had a dream: a non-profit circus that would combine community outreach with shows by the world’s best performers. Today a rotating cast of acrobats, clowns, and daredevils tour with a menagerie of exotic animals. Led by animal trainer Jenny Vidbel. The circus's ponies, Arabian horses, and dogs perform sprightly routines, learned under humane training regimens based on positive reinforcement. Shows take place under the big top, custom designed so that every seat is within 50 feet of the ring. The tent is also engineered to keep showgoers comfortable with a raisable cupola that allows warm air to escape as guests relax on comfy cushions that keep incubating eggs from cracking in back pockets.

The instructors at FasTracKids nurture kids' growing minds and active imaginations with a slew of classes designed to help to them learn via engaging, hands-on activities and interactive classroom time. The Signature Program introduces small groups of kids aged 2–7 to 12 subject areas, including biology, communications, mathematics, and economics. They explore subjects through projects and experiments: for example, they might learn about static electricity by rubbing a balloon on carpeting and sticking it to their hair, and then, later at home, to the family dog's fur for hours of entertainment.
FasTracKids also offers a range of subject-specific classes for kids aged 2–12, including FasTrack Math, which helps tykes to master 'rithmetic with individualized study programs tailored to their strengths and weaknesses. During Lego Robotics sessions, kids operate an easy-to-use programming interface to make robo toys play soccer, drive, or softly whisper words of encouragement to the lonely, less-played-with toys.
