I am SO looking forward to using a computer without being surrounded by giggling, snorting teenage girls cutting up on Facebook in ways that I deem inappropriate. This is a sore test. ::snort::
We discovered the Statue of Liberty today. I'll blog later...when I don't have snorting teenagers and two skype calls going on around me. Come to think of it Jared has the laptop so I don't have access to my photos. LOL
While at the park another American came by. She has twins and I recognized her from the Weasel's Den, where I had chatted with her before. It turns out that she will live about 100 meters down the road from us. She told us about a new way to get to base. GREAT....through farm country instead of through the middle of town. She says it takes 10 min for her to get to base.....not bad at all.
I tried to learn about Skype....and the whole website was in Katakana. It wasn't helpful. I know if we download it and get the mic and camera working friends with computers can talk to us for free...but I want to pay for the service where you get a stateside phone number. The plan is to get one in Crescent City so that it is a local call for Mom and Dad G to call us.....but I have to figure out how to make it work.
We spent over 2 hours on the phone today with the boys....I'm going to try to get Skype working in the next day or so....and we'll come down to the computer room when everyone else is at work and school and give it a shot...but that may be a strange time stateside. Grrr.....
