I am back to work next week, so I won't be available.

But I hope someone will be able to make a report of the goings on! big_laugh

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

If it on for next week, great please count me in but please someone remind me, my memory has decreased in direct inverse proportion to my waistline.

I have reached an age where my train of thought often leaves the station without me...

Not been on these calls, but can I recommend VOIPSTUNT, a friend set it up for us on our laptop for us ringing son in Oz. It's pretty straighforward, you have to sing up to it, and credit it with a minimum of £10, but then calls to most destinations cost you 5c (it's in Euros) for as long as you like (up to an hour I think). It costs us 15c a minute to call Dave in Oz on his mobile. It's a bit of an odd set up, you have to ring thru your computer, which then rings you phone - you pick up your phone and it then rings your chosen destination - if anyone wants more details let me know. Did I sound like a saleswoman for VOIP - sorry

For those of us with so much to do, we need reminders - perhaps someone with a good memory can help us all to remember!

Volunteer anyone?

Then why don't you do it tonight?  That way you won't need to remember for very long!  big_laugh

I'll try that again!
