We're making plans for staying connected with family and friends. Thanks to the Internet, there are so many great options becoming available. We have our webcams and are intending to use Skype for live voice and webcam conversations back home. It's a free sign up at Skype. Tim's Skype contact is "tjschu" and Lanette's is "lmschu". I've got links gathered for some other live conferencing options (more than 2 connecting) in our links area.
