Hey Dad…Let’s Zoom!

Hey Dad…Let’s Zoom!

Well, this seems to be the big thing now. I think it’s serving a purpose for sure. It’s getting people involved and quite honesty it’s one of the ways we can communicate with loved ones during all this. One of the most unique things I’m seeing online is people using it for special occasions. I know of a few families that set up the big screen in the dining rooms at Easter and had the dinner on ZOOM!!! Now THAT’s using your head! They actually had written that obviously it wasn’t the real thing but to be able to see everybody (relatives and/or friends) at the table at different locations and carry on the usual conversation served it’s purpose. To Zoom or NOT to Zoom. That is the question. Look in to it. I’m not totally well versed on it and I know there has been some security discussions on it but I think if this would be an option to the frustrating situation we’re in why not look in to it? I have and have been very happy with the technology we have today to fill the void. Think about it…if this would have happened 20 years ago things would be extremely different. Zoom away…but for your peace of mind…look in to it first.

I know we’ve heard it many times before but the sacrifices made by many are so worth repeating the real reason. Memorial Day is about remembering those that made the ultimate…read more »
