Using Skype to stay connected

It’s been a VERY long time since I visited my brother (or he’s come to visit me). And I miss him.

So, it was a pleasant conversation we had last week when we both connected via Skype.

Imagine me in Mead Colorado chatting with him in Tampa Florida!

We chatted, visited, laughed, snorted, observed, got tours of each others houses, saw the nieces, met the dog, checked the oven, looked at the pool and smiled — yes, lots of smiles.

We save money on phone bills and save minutes because Skype uses VoIP (voice over Internet protocol) and calls for free to anyone in the world who also uses Skype on their PC. We also have the ability to sent instant messages.

It’s easy to set up, and the search feature to find your other Skype users is simple. In order to connect with someone, you send them a request and they can say Yes or Deny the Request. This is important because you have that choice as well and can block others from ‘Skyping’ you.

My friend connects with her Peace Corp family in the Dominican Republic and gives them English lessons!  In return, they dance for her. Skype is a bridge to people, ideas, lessons, entertainment, classrooms and so much more.
