Something like Skype

Please excuse my subpar Photosynth skills.  I used the app to capture the view from Gilbert’s house.  Or at least attempt to capture the view.  It’s just something you have to see to believe.  Photos simply don’t do it justice.  It’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever experienced.  God, I miss that place.  I’d much rather look at my beautiful children together and see the scenes of Memphis any day– but I miss the scenery of California’s central coast.

Shifting gears….

Terry Riggins said it best:  “Words can not describe the pile of excrement that is Windows 8. I hadn’t really tried to use it until now, and I’m honestly at a loss. How the hell did they screw this up so bad? It’s unusable, no joke, completely and utterly useless.”  I concur, Terry.  Windows 8 is garbage.  Not only is it very user-UNfriendly, it’s endlessly frustrating, I don’t understand it and don’t want to understand it.  Bring back the old Windows that was logical, straightforward, and relatively simple.  Despite my best efforts to download both Skype and Facebook video chat I was unable to so on this repulsive operating system.  The only video-ish contraption I can access is through my Gmail.  Gilbert was my guinea pig for the visual Gchat.  How nice it was to talk with and ‘see’ him!  Next we chatted with Nita.  So maybe it’s not Skype but for simplicity’s sake I’ll refer to as such.

Let’s video chat if you have Gmail!

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,



About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
