Technology can be a good thing (when it works), and we were fortunate enough to be able to communicate between family back in Florida via video conferencing using Skype. It's totally free and uses the web cam on your computer to connect to anyone else who has a free Skype account. What's more is you can send files and text messages during the call. Just another way to stay connected. My Skype address is just garry.kline. Real original - I know, but feel free to hook up if you see me online.
