I'm not as good at it as I once was, but as some of you may know, I recently got back in touch with my in-laws. I've been talking via Facebook to some of them & have gotten together with two sisters-in-law, two brothers-in-law, two nieces & assorted others since then. I guess I have to thank Facebook for that. I sent a message to one brother-in-law in California & started hearing from the others. It was just like I'd never left except for catching up on who the children, grandchildren & great-grandchildren belong to.

Also got reconnected about a year ago with a woman I knew when we were both little girls. She lived two houses away & we played together all the time until they moved away. We've corresponded via Facebook & met a couple of times.

I send out and annual christmas card both snail and electric to relatives. I have connected with a lot of distant relatives on FB and use FB as an extension to my genealogy tools where I can collect photos of family.

I started sending Christmas cards about 20 years ago just to keep in touch. I include a note of the years' events and most responders do too. I do not send to friends who do not reciprocate. I find this is a perfect way - some I've never met, some I haven't seen for years but through the cards we have continued a friendship.

Personal goal is to weigh in 149 by the end of March 2015. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THIS GOAL IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2015 to be back to below 150 by January 2015.

Are you good at keeping in touch with old friends. How about extended family members such as aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.?
