It WAS very enjoyable, we thought. It's just lovely to have a gentle conversation with some laughs and a few wind-ups. Somehow it matters not a jot whether there are three or ten joining in. We all seem comfortable with each other and it really is like old friends having a chat over a cuppa.

30 minutes does seem like the ideal duration and I think fortnigtly is good too.

Next one Wed Dec 8

Josie, I used my cell phone, and I have AT&T. It costs $3.95 a month for the overseas access, and then 8 cents a minute. You'll have to check with your phone company about overseas calling, unless Danny has had some luck with a difference conference calling system?....... with American numbers to call in on?

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

Skype to call an English number is 2 cents a minute I think. That would make it cheaper, you just need a headset for your computer.

Maybe try Skype then Rosie as Skype costs are dependent on where you are phoning to not your location.cheers
