Yesterday, my new Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 8000 arrived. FedEx delivered the mouse at 4 PM, so it was too late to toy with it. I had shopping to perform and dinner plans to complete. Today, I shall fully explore this new Bluetooth mouse. It is to be used with my new HP notebook, which is scheduled to arrive today.

Last week, I migrated my main office system and Laura's home desktop system to Microsoft Office 2007. I shall install Office 2007 on the new notebook tomorrow. Office 2007 is a significant advancement from Office 2003, which I had been using. I am still acclimating myself to all the changes, enhancements, and new features. The HP notebook will have Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate. I am eager to explore this new 64-bit operating system.
