Many children think of bath time as a necessary evil, sort of like picking at dinner before devouring dessert. But trade that boring washcloth and bar of soap for a fanciful sponge and watermelon-scented bath gel, and it's as if play time had never ended. - H2O Plus makes botanical products that spell good clean fun for kids: shower and bath gels redolent of grapes and cherries, a shampoo and conditioner with the tang of green apples and a moisturizer that could pass for banana puree.

Obviously the owners of the Angels and Dodgers have never heard of team chemistry. Arte Moreno and the Guggenheim Guy thought they could build better teams just by adding more expensive elements. Here's a lesson from Chemistry 101: You won't improve water (H2O) by replacing the O (oxygen) with Au (gold). H2Au won't work: Just ask Torii Hunter, the professor of Team Chemistry 101.
