I am married to the love of my life and am finally able to shower him with all of the attention he deserves. I am now retired and living the life here in Europe. I am an American, he is an Australian, and this is our second overseas address. The first was Shanghai, China and now Munich, Germany. Come along and live the life with us as we continue our adventure of discovering all Europe has to offer.

How did people do it before Skype? This is my most favorite invention and what makes it even better is that it is FREE! I can call my husband, for nothing, talk to him as long as I want (or with the 6 hour difference, as long as he can keep his eyes open), and see him at the same time.

Amazing! If you don't Skype with your loved ones and friends far away, you really ought to look into it. We bought all of the kids web cams last Christmas, but many of their computers already have cameras and microphones built into them. It is the next best thing to being with them.

The best part is that you can take your OWN photo with your web cam (like the one of me below) and download it into your computer for your own icon or to send to friends and family. In fact, I just recently realized that you can even make a short video and send it. Instead of a written email, your friend/mate/whomever can get the message from you in person. Now, how cool is that? I just love technology, don't you?

What is your most favorite technology? Leave me a comment at the end of the post and tell me what your favorite technology is.
