Heart Nebula

Someone threw a wrench in my google-fu!

I'm usually good at scouring the internet, but I've searched for a solid 30 minutes with absolutely no luck. What I'm looking for I thought would be easy to find: some free, printable math exercises at a middle school level. EVERYTHING I've seen is for charge. If it's NOT me, can someone please point me to some dark corner of the internet where I've not yet ventured? Here's what I'm looking for:

* Simplifying fractions
* Operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) with fractions
* Operations with decimals
* Operations with percentages (including finding percentages of whole numbers. For example, 25% of the number 40.)
* Converting between fractions, decimals and percentages
* Operations with negative numbers
* Solving roots and powers
* Operations with numbers elevated to powers

Thanks for your help!

Help me buy wine for my dad?

My dad is super hard to Christmas shop for. It's not that he's picky, it's more that he doesn't collect anything, or feel there is anything he needs all that much. What he does love is wine, red wine. Preferably Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir. His favorite is called Jordan. Him and mom used to drink it on special occasions, and it has very good memories for him now that she's gone.

Unfortunately, it's not in my budget this year. Since I do know it's a fave, I'd like to get him something similar in taste, but that is in the $20-25 range instead. Can anyone recommend something else you think he'd like, based on his love of Jordan? I can't drink red, so I have no idea what would be similar.

From BevMo's page: A wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon expressing dark fruit aromas of blackberry, blueberry and cassis with just a note of cocoa; smooth tannins and nice backbone on the aftertaste.
