Homeward bound

You gotta love technology.  Years ago, when we travelled abroad, the only way we had to communicate was through either a intricate long distance phone calls or a post card (or smoke signals) to home telling everyone we arrived safely. 

Nowadays, with GPS and smart phones, you can keep up to date with anyone around the world.  One neat little site I stumbled across was http://www.flightstats.com/.  It allows you to track flights and review any potential delays or problems.  You can actually track a flight in progress to see where it is and when you need to head out for the airport.  As of this morning, junior has crossed back over the pond and is somewhere over Canada.

I see you

Cool toy! Makes me wonder how we ever got along without all this techie stuff.

Oh, and happy birthday to Junior!

I love technology. Almost daily, I think how lucky we are to have ways to know our loved ones are safe. Our parents surely weren't able to rest as easily at night as we do.

Glad Junior is back and safe!
