There must be a Providence over the kindly after all

With all my recent secular sermonizing about tossing a small good kindness out into the world---- LOOK what i just got in the mail five minutes ago! The first time I've won any contest since i was a kid.

THIS is not a commercial plant onto SE. It is my contest prize win notification. TO THINK i wrote a testimonial two weeks ago, not even thinking of their contest... but only saying how happy i was that Mouserug is still around.

Subject: Compliment about my Mouserug

model: a red Persian (?) "Licensed reproduction from the Nourison

Collection of Fine Area Rugs" on the back

Mice may come and mice will go but my own Mouserug will live forever. It

was a gift to me from American novelist Harvey Jacobs and his beautiful

wife, Estelle Jacobs.

After six or seven years of continuous service, and this is many

=thousands= of hours daily work, my Mouserug appears and feels exactly like

new. At this rate it could outlast my lifetime and the next owner, too!

Last year I thought to take a chance and "wash" the rug in hand soap and

warm water. It was still looking perfect before the washing. But after

the washing it looked even brighter! So my hunch paid off: the MouseRug

is so well designed and engineered that its colors don't fade nor run;

certainly not if hand washed and blotted dry. Just like with real

antique rug, the colors brightened up when the subtle dust and skin oils

were rinsed away.

The working surface of Mouserug surpasses any other pad I've ever tries.

I cannot imagine using any other mouse pad than this one- until I purchase

one of your many new and varied patterns so inspirationally beautiful.

I write this testimonial -unsolicited- because the Mouserug I take so much

for granted as THE most lasting component of my computer life, just came up

in an Internet forum discussion.

Someone at In My Opinion remarked about a new, -laser- tracking optical

mouse brand new to the market.

I responded that I'm all game for an eighty dollar mouse if it makes

mousing more precise.

But my Mouserug? That stays for my lifetime. In a world of sizzle sold as

steak, the Mouserug is the one and only true perfection out of all the

computer peripherals in this world. As long as mouse pads are useful I

will need my Mouserug. Even if modern mouse may not really require a mouse

pad, the Mouserug retains practical value as a working surface of ideal

friction coefficient and hand-comforting cushion. Most of all to me the

Mouserug makes an unparalleled focal point to any desktop. It is an

eye-pleasing focal point for the computer station that and never grows old

and never bores the eye by long familiarity.

PS: Last time I tried to find your website, maybe two years ago,

www.mouserug. com appeared to be defunct. What a pleasure to find that

the good do not die young.

YES, by all means use my endorsement to help further popularize your

wonderful creation. Edit, abridge, rephrase it exactly as you see best to

fit your guest comments pages.

Such a rare thing, to see a true quality product that does not obsolete

itself by the effects of long wear and tear. And still made here in the

USA; Awesome!

Finally this windy guy has to offer this: gladness and cheered to know

someone in our USA can still provide manufacturing jobs and make an A-1

Superior product- your Mouserug. Kudos to every member of your
