      The first one is an excellent idea.

      A covered mouse pad is a bad idea, can cause tracking problems.

      And how old is that iPod Nano? aren't the new ones thin?

        Thanks for the tip about mouse pads--- I didn't know that. I know many people use them.

        You are right about the Nano. Last year it was perfect for my kids, but now they do have an Ipod touch. I will look for an updated soloution. Thanks!

      Hello there, I do think your site might be having internet browser compatibility
      problems. When I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues.
      I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!

      Besides that, great blog!
