wonders od the internet!

Saturday, June 30, 2012

I just got off a video chat with my Mom and one of my Sons who are in Germany!
My mom and her cousin are the last of her generation, and this cousins son is dying of cancer..... so sad. BUT I got to see them and talk to them via the Internet!! How cool is that!! Pretty amazing stuff.

Glad my Son is with my Mom as this is pretty hard on her. Just wish I could have gone also, just didn't work out.

Anyway, just thought I'd share and tell everyone how exciting it was! Imagine talking via video almost 5,000 miles away! Amazing!!

have a wonderful weekend everyone!

    I recently had a similar experience with a job interview with a company in Puerto Rico. It would have been nice to go there but it turned out the job wasn't worth it to move there.

    It IS totally amazing what technology has done to open up our world...I love it and sometimes hate it at the same time! I LOVE staying abreast of all the things happening in the world and hate that it seems to be just ONE more thing to have on my 'to do' list if I don't get right back to e-mails etc. I'm happy you were able to connect and I'm sorry that it couldn't have been for a happier occasion. emoticon

    While the occasion is sad, the event...the incredible. And to think that some of us have seen, lived through, the changes from party phone lines to video computer conversations...pretty wonderful.

    i am so sorry for your cousin and his mother. I am sure it comforted her and your Mother to be able to speak to you. The internet is an amazing thing.

    It is amazing. I'm just trying to figure out all the technologies we have now. I am always wondering what am I going to miss?. Always wanted a flying car. Jetsens,remember? emoticon

    Yes, there are so many advantages we have these days than people had even 20 years ago. Technology is incredible! I love how it increases our sense of being a global community.
