A recent study found 65 percent of kids had an invisible friend. Whether it's a doll,
a stuffed animal, a Pokemon charcter or a red Power Ranger, these imaginary friends are quite real. Kids consider them living friends and often keep these friends long after they admit to their parents about their existence. Often children have multiple friends.

If you need help with middle names as well, Baby Genie might be right for you!
Baby Genie grants wishes for the 'perfect' first & middle baby names and is available by email.
Your wish is this electronic genie's command and there is method behind the magic.
Here is a tip for middle names:
Vary the number of syllables in each name. A long middle name can nicely compliment a short first and last name. A short middle name can smooth out a long first and last name combination. Whatever you do, don't string three long names together (unless you want your child to have difficulty filling out forms their whole life!)

A little star watching in Hollywood at the Griffiths Observatory...A friend just sent us a link to a very well designed and presented review called The Sun Moon and Stars.The in-depth and amusing commentary on celestial objects, mostly stars are punctuated with fabulous "star" quotes,great photos of celestial jewelry which the writer notes was on display at the Observatory when she wrote her review.
Griffiths Observatory has been just re-opened. "Public interest in the reopening of Griffith Observatory is expected to generate an overwhelming number of projected visitors to the Observatory in the months after reopening. In response, the City of Los Angeles has implemented a temporary visitor access program featuring a timed-entry and shuttle reservation system. This temporary program will ensure an enjoyable and safe visitor experience by preventing long waits and overcrowding while maintaining normal traffic flows in the Los Feliz area."
