Oh Orly,

I am a grandmother of seven, and everyone lives in different cities and states. Phone calls are great but I would love to stay in closer contact with everyone. I know about the Internet, but I am a little “technophobic.” Any ideas that could help me?

Hi Mary,

We all fear the unknown and yet all we need is the knowledge. I would suggest that you find a community center near you that offers courses on how to use the Internet and

then the fear will subside.

There is a tool called Skype and it is completely FREE so you can call and see your family on a regular basis – even every day. That tool really brings people together.

You can also ask a family member or a friend or a friend’s children or grandchildren to teach you.

Be well, Mary.

All for the best, Smiles
