Being of the older generation technology is not my strong point. My brother went to Australia in 1966 and it took about 3 weeks to communicate by letter.last night I had a video call on my mobile phone, I was face to face with him ,his kids and grand kids. He was in his back garden and I was at home.strange how the younger generation take it all in their stride.

A similar story...............

Way back in 1997, we were living in remotest Devon, when we got our first dial-up connection (remember them?), and an email account. Our daughter was travelling the world so we decided to try it out by sending her an email. Imagine our surprise when we got a reply within ten minutes. She was sitting in an internet cafe in Guatemala.

I can remember the phone calls from Australia to UK being 2 seconds delay, made conversation very hard.

I can also remember post restante.
