Okay, I bought a webcam 6 or 7 months ago with the intention of being able to talk to my brothers (3 of them) who all live in different states. I sent them all emails and explained to them how cool it would be to be able to talk face to face and even all of us together on a regular basis. I also thought I could keep up with my grandkids this way too since they all live far from me. Up until yesterday, I had never used this gadget. One of my oldest and dearest friends had back surgery this past week and I called her to see how she was doing. During the conversation she mentioned webcams and when she found out I had one she called me on it. We sat face to face and laughed and chatted and it was so awesome. We haven't seen each other in 3 years and now we visited online, free, face to face. My hubby walked into the room while we were talking and she saw him and spoke to him and he was blown away. Now he is hooked too. He went out and bought his own webcam for his laptop. Now, all I have to do is convince my brothers that it's worth the $20 or so to be able to see my lovely face on a regular basis and share a little bit of our lives instead of just on email or an occasional phone call.
