Hi to all that read my blog!
Just a few days ago I bought a web cam and set up a SKYPE account to make video calls!
I have some up coming appointments that I needed SKYPE for! Yes, I will have live video call appointments!!!!! I can sit at home with my coffee and not have to drive anywhere. (with gas at over $4.oo a gallon who wants to drive?)

When setting up my account, I thought it would be difficult and confusing....but it was not!
I thought if my sons 70 year old Godmother could use SKYPE so could I. She has been wanting me to get an account for 3yrs now!

Step#1 Buy and then plug in a web cam.
(I got mine for $44.95 at Walmart)

Step#2 Google "How to set up SKYPE" and follow the easy directions for the free download.

Step#3 Find a friend that has SKYPE, have them call you and test it out!

I then watched the video on how to find other friend that SKYPE.
Your computer can search your email contacts and facebook friends and let you know who has SKYPE accounts.

You have to OK the people that can call you.

Today I looked for friends in my email contacts that had SKYPE (some how it can search for me)
Eager to try out my SKYPE and  seeing that Amy from Raising Arrows blog was online I nervously called. She answered! It was such a joy to talk with her even for just a few minutes! SKYPE is so cool!
Thanks AMY!!!!!!

Are there any blog friends that want to SKYPE out there?????

Oh if you are wondering about the picture at the top of my post and what it had to do my topic?
Well it doesn't have a thing to do with it! I just love clothes lines and wanted a picture at the top of my post! :)

Peace and Joy,

  1. Ah, the wonders of modern technology!

    I got an e-mail that you were trying to reach me via Skype but I don't have it on my computer--and what with everything going on, probably won't be able to for awhile. And I will never have a web cam since those can be used to spy on you when you don't know it! Not that I'm that important but I just don't like the possibilities!! But seriously isn't it getting to be just like The Jetson's??? Giggle!!

    By the way, I sent you a friend request on Facebook. Did you get it?



I read all my comments and love to know people are out there....I enjoy making new blog friends!
Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
