This post is personal, but it will get the word out to lots of friends and family quickly. Next Tuesday, Sept. 25. our family will grow by 3, two girls (12 & 13) and a young man (14). We will be their home for a while. They do have a much older sister in Panama, who may take custody at some point in time, or not. We expect them to be part of our family for a few to several years. Pictures on Flickr as they become available.

Skype & MS Office

Skype has a new toolbar for MS Office. Works with Office 2007. Things you can do with Skype Office Toolbar
  • Start calls to Skype Names and phone numbers written within MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents
  • See when the author of a document is online and communicate with them
  • Send the file you are currently working on to Skype Contacts
  • Turn phone numbers into links within your document
I'll have to give this a try.
