Question: How can I tell if the little furry animal I found in the basement is a baby mouse or a rat? Answer: Mouse ears are very large, relative to the body. Baby rat ears are small, relatively. Baby rat tails are thicker, whereas mouse tails are thinner.

It was bitter cold inside a 240-seat theater in St. Mary's Episcopal Outreach Center, where members of the Baltimore Shakespeare Factory rehearsed "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King" on Sunday, Dec. 1. As it turned out, the boiler was on the blink. "We are heat-free today," said Kelly Dowling, 36, of Westminster, managing director of the theater troupe. "But as they say, the show must go on. " For the Shakespeare Factory, as for its namesake, the play's the thing - but it certainly isn't a typical play.

The stars of the National Hardware Show, which closed Wednesday in Chicago and drew 70,000 people over four days, were six white mice.The mice, which worked in alternating shifts, crawled in and out of the Mice Cube, a smoke-gray plastic box that traps a mouse without hurting it and can be opened to let the mouse scamper free.Attracted by the odor of peanut butter, peanuts, jelly, pizza or cheese that can be put into the trap, a mouse pushes open the door, which has seven air holes, and the door shuts behind it."

You would think that French intellectuals, who find Jerry Lewis profound, would be tickled pink about Mickey Mouse's beachhead on the outskirts of Paris. Something, perhaps, about the existential hunger for meaningless diversion in defiance of the empty abyss that is our beingness.Instead, the best, or worst, that the flower of French cogitation has to say about Euro Disneyland is that it is "a cultural Chernobyl" and "a terrifying giant's step toward world homogenization" and "a horror made of cardboard, plastic and appalling colors, a construction of hardened chewing gum and idiotic folklore taken straight out of comic books written for obese Americans."

THE MOOD has been rather tense around our house lately with the discovery that there is a mouse the size of a golden retriever living in the kitchen.This first came to my attention a week ago, when I walked into the house bone-tired after another long day of journalism.People think newspaper writers don't get tired taking cheap shots at people and dealing in vicious innuendo and outrageous hyperbole, but believe me, we do. I'm not saying it's like swinging a pick in a coal mine, but, still.

Optical: Old-fashioned trackball mice are cheap, but the low maintenance of optical is worth the extra 20 bucks. Wireless: Manufacturers advertise wireless mice as the next big thing, but they're still relatively expensive. Think carefully about whether you'll actually need to get rid of a cord or use a mouse away from your desk. Look and feel: Gray mice are passe, so you have lots of options to match your decor. If you're in a store, ask to pick up a mouse and test it to see if it feels comfortable in your hand.

If you bought a new PC recently, chances are good that it came with a no-frills mouse - a boring, two-button, scrolling model with a rubber ball underneath. There are a couple of good reasons for this. First, it's a good way for the manufacturer to save a buck or two in a market where margins are razor thin. Second, plenty of customers will be satisfied with it - at least until it wears out. Third, for heavy PC users, mice are very personal items - most people who care about them would rather pick out their own. This explains why retailers have dozens of after-market mice on display in a bewildering variety of shapes and sizes.

Two weeks after a 7.0-magnitude earthquake leveled Port-au-Prince, U.S. relief organizations in Baltimore and beyond have collected more than $380 million for Haiti, an outpouring of support unprecedented for a foreign disaster. With the images from Haiti still dominating news coverage and advances in technology allowing more ways to give, fundraising for Haiti has more than doubled the record pace set in the days following the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the Chronicle of Philanthropy reported Friday.

Alton Kelley, 67 Poster artist Alton Kelley, the artist who created the psychedelic style of posters and other art associated with the 1960s San Francisco rock scene, died Sunday at his home in Petaluma, Calif., of complications from osteoporosis, said his publicist, Jennifer Gross.

Having spent 40-plus years as a touch typist - and at least 15 years on computers running Windows or Mac software - I pay more attention than most to keyboards and mice. Like all important tools, they can increase your productivity, but they can also be dangerous - through faulty design, carelessness by the user or both. Extensive keyboard and mouse use can hasten the onset of repetitive stress injury, so like others who work with tools for a living, I try to be careful. And I'm not averse to spending money for good equipment.

Computer gaming is all about precision, and the Razer Boom- slang 2000 mouse has it. The sleek, translucent black Boomslang is about five times more accurate than an average mouse, according to Razer. It's hard to disagree. In a variety of fast-paced action games, I found my shots generally landing right where I wanted them to. In addition to sharp control, the Boomslang sports five programmable buttons. Thanks to the latest downloadable software drivers, players can assign single keyboard keys or a combination of keys to a particular button.

IF YOU USE your computer for more than an hour a day, you'll find that little problems get very annoying very quickly. And nothing is more annoying than a mouse that doesn't work.Mine started acting up a couple of weeks ago -- skipping a bit and landing the cursor just east or west of where I wanted it to go. I ignored the problem at first, but gradually it got to the point where I was spending too much time pawing at the little gadget and not enough time working at whatever I was doing.This is an affliction that every mouse suffers over time.

It's getting colder outside, and no one knows better than the neighborhood rodents. They find it much more comfy to live in your floors, walls, kitchen drawers, name it, so it's time to come up with an eradication strategy. Here's some advice, provided with help from the folks at Terminix. KNOW YOUR ENEMY -- Cooler temperatures limit rodents' natural sources of food and shelter. But they can enter houses through tiny openings and are capable of scaling rough surfaces and even tightroping wires to gain access to entry points.
