    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!

    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!
