Cool email option

I was introduced to this free online service a few days ago.

Texting in public = cool for kids - uncool for adults
Jott-ing = cool for adults

Simply create an account.
Setup an address book of email addresses that you want to send messages to.
Use your cell phone to call a toll free JOTT number and dictate your message which will be sent to the email address.
The recipient of your message can read the transcript/text or listen to your voice.
It's worked flawlessly for me over the past few days.

It seemed like a cool thing to Post to the Blog.
Let me know if you try it out and find it useful, Charlie

Happy Halloween in The DDLP

What a great turnout in the neighborhood for Halloween.

We saw so many creative costumes.

A very pleasant evening.

Thanks for all the neighbors and little ghouls and gobblins that visited our setup in front of Bart and Paige's home. Here's a pic of us enjoying the evening.
