I’m trying out Google Hangouts. It’s a cross platform text chat application that also offers voice and video calling.  I know, it has been around for a long time but I’m just getting around to trying it. 

Since you can use it on just about any device, it might be a great secondary method for our group to communicate with each other that does not require FaceBook. 

I have found that my conversations there show up on both my PC and phone at same time. Allowing me to respond from whichever one I am working on at the moment, and take the conversation with me when I walk away from my desk. 

Clicking the button below will take you to a “Hangout” for Our Coffee Shop Fans. See you there.

Hello Members! 

A great suggestion from K6FN is to put some pictures of our members here on the Fan Site!    I am happy to accommodate this request! So, please send in your pictures! New, old, pictures of you, or something else you would like to represent you here.

I’m looking forward to seeing all of you!

Many thanks to those have sent pics in already!
