    Facetime is great for the present situation.

    Tonight I'm having Chardonnay instead of Cabernet to keep from getting into a rut.

    Tried to buy a camera today so we can do FaceTime from our Mac. Everyone is sold out though there are many on Ebay for 2-3x normal price. Ugh!! Wondering now what other items will be hard to find going forward...

    I do Facetime from my Macbook Air and my iPhone using an app. Why do you need a camera to do this?

    I have been diagnosed with rosacea. Itís a working diagnosis, anyway, for a rash I have on my chest.So right now I have to pay close attention to my red wine consumption see if itís a trigger for this chest rash. Iím pretty sure mine was triggered by sun exposure, but who knows.

    .It is not a happy time in the iris Lily household.

    Android's version of Face Time is called Duo, although unlike Face Time, it can be installed on both Android and Apple phones.

    Tomorrow morning I have a virtual breakfast with a bunch of guys who get together approximately monthly, for breakfast or happy hour or a weekend at the cabin. I'm curious to see how well this works because it's usually 7-8 guys and the side conversations are as interesting as the main ones. It is a little disappointing in that I will not be at a restaurant which will serve me breakfast. I suppose I could find a place that delivers or does pickup. But maybe we'll just learn what works this time. Better than not having breakfast with them at all!
