This morning I had my first Skype conversation. Hey, I know it's not new, but it was new for me.

On Saturday I helped set up Skype for a friend and told her to buy a webcam. Then I decided that I had to come further into the 21st Century myself, and I headed over to Crystal Lake for my own new webcam.

After the set-up I played "telephone tag" with my grand-daughter in South Carolina and sent a few messages to friends in New Zealand, the U.K., and Switzerland.

This morning my Skype "rang", and a college classmate was calling from Switzerland! The last time we met in person was in Chicago in 1964 after graduation! It was like chatting in person!

If you haven't tried Skype, give it a shot!
