Using SQL 2008 R2,

1. Can I create either a Mirror off of a Mirrored database, or can I create 2 Mirrors off of one principal?

2. Having 2 instances with mirrored databases, can I also create a log shipped database off of the principal, which ever server is the pricipal?

Thanks!

No and no.

Yes. It's a little harder than log shipping a standalone, but there are documents explaining the process around.
