The Japanese have finally revealed a mystery for us.

How does the small arrow on your computer monitor work when you move the mouse? Now, through the miracle of high technology, we can see how it is done.
With the aid of a screen magnifying lens, the mechanism becomes apparent. Click on the link below and you will find out.
The image may take a minute or two to download and when it appears, slowly move your mouse over the light gray circle and you will see how the magic works.
Be sure to move your mouse once the picture comes up. Play around with it - move it a lot - then just a little - even hold it still for a few seconds.

I moved about 400 lbs today.

I decided that I really want to get my car in my garage. In order to do that, I needed another cabinet. First, I pushed the freezer, which is about 200lbs, into the space that was once occupied by the spare refrigerator. That left a large space for a cabinet.

So I went to Home Depot (the only hardware store in town) and got a DIY cabinet. Two very nice (very pretty) boys helped me get this 200lb box into my Prius. After pushing and jockeying through three doors, I took off with the potential cabinet laying in my passenger seat, with "Tim" admonishing me to get the neighbor boys to help me get it out of the car.

I got it back home and, lo and behold, the neighborhood was deserted.

Pushing, pulling and prying by myself, I managed to work the thing out of my car. It was far too heavy to lug into the garage. So, I opened the box and shifted piece after piece into the garage.

I'll tackle assembly tomorrow when I have some energy.
