Legs can swing free and easy beneath rejuvenated dresses ($10.25), snuggle inside newly cleaned pants ($5.75), or envy arms ensconced in jackets ($6.25). Free of petroleum and air contaminants, the GreenEarth process cleans clothes without harming the air, water, or other colors' feelings.

To become a princess, a girl needs to either be born into royalty or earn it by befriending hordes of mice. At Pretty in Pink Unique Party Boutique, however, any girl can transform into a princess during the Princess Tea Party—one of many themed parties carried out by friendly hostesses for girls ages three and up. Within a Mad Hatter-themed tea party room, guests enjoy cake and receive glamorous makeovers, styling their hair and spritzing it with glitter before topping it with a dazzling tiara. Other parties mimic a day at the spa, adopt a Hello Kitty theme, or let girls live out their dreams of being rock stars by shouting awkward stage banter into a karaoke machine. For a dose of glamor on a whim, smaller groups of 1–3 girls can also walk in to the boutique and receive miniature versions of makeovers as well as mani-pedis.

Robert Taylor, owner and head instructor at Robert Taylor's Shudo-Kan Karate, has a simple philosophy on teaching martial arts and fitness: "We make it fun," he says. "We understand each person has a different pace, so we push them at their pace, not the pace of the other person." He carries that style of teaching over into all of his classes, from training kids in the earliest steps of karate to helping adults get fighting-fit with muay thai or Zumba classes. He rounds out the schedule with judo, grappling, and weapons form classes, giving students a complete spectrum of training in martial arts both ancient and modern.

More than a century ago, an industrious farmer named Gerard enlisted the help of bees to pollinate his family estate. Inadvertently, the buzzing insects fertilized a new passion for Gerard, one that would become a family tradition.

Four generations later, Gerard?Z Honeybees' bustling hives create more than a dozen local and monofloral honeys from such plants as star thistle, orange blossoms, and avocado blossoms. Because the honeys are completely raw and natural, they maintain the micro-nutritious qualities often left out of industrial varieties, and they may help allergy sufferers to acclimate to their local pollen varieties.

Gerard?Z holds year-round beekeeping workshops and honey tasting seminars at local wineries, nurseries, and farmers? markets throughout the Bay Area and Central Valley. During the classes and tastings, bee experts demystify the process of maintaining a hive, and people get the chance to taste the difference between clover honey, buckwheat honey, black sage honey, and Doritos honey. Gerard?Z also helps to maintain the delicate honeybee population by finding homes for wild swarms or colonies that have built hives in unwanted places and might otherwise fall prey to exterminators.

Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning?s numerous centers design personalized programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chests.

Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids feel more comfortable in the classroom. Afterschool or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students wow college-admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.
