  1. Well, I may have found a way to talk with my daughter in Spain.

    She is on Skype and now so am I.

    We will see. Her mother tells me it works pretty well and you can speak and hear through the computer speakers.

    Any one else have any experience with this ?

    Yes. We used it when my husband was on a job in Brazil. We used webcams too so we could see each other.

    It's free computer to computer but if you get an account you can call from computer to a land line pretty inexpensively.

  7. The X rung me up on Skype. She shared a few pics of the kids and HER grandkids.

    Wow, it is really amazing. I can not wait to speak with my daughter. I have a message to her to except

    me as a contact. I think it is 6 or so hours in front of me.


    If this thing gets as popular as I think it will, half the planet will be on it.

    I hear google, yahoo and a few others have something similar.
