Rich found this HP Printer that accepts email via a phone line for people who don't have a computer. We think Meemo would love to get email from people like Marc, Carla, Dick G in Wi., and all of us if she just would sit down and learn to use a computer. However, we know she won't - she won't take time to learn how to use her DVD player.
So what better!?! A printer that accepts email! All we have to do is hook it up, set up a Presto email address for her and tell the printer what time to download email messages for her every day. She literally doesn't have to do anything except walk in the room to get her print outs. The printer logs on via the phone line, downloads the messages at a time we designate and they are waiting on the printer for her whenever she wants to read them.
I KNOW Meemo would say...."Oh I don't need that" but I'm sure she would love to get email from all of us all the time - espeically those of us not great at calling her on a regular basis. She would love to talk to Marc, Carla and Dick more often but doesn't want to call long distance and they don't seem to do it very often from Mom's cell phone.
My bet is, she'd love it!!
I found it for $119.00 online and then internet access is $99.00 a year. I thought the family could go it on it together and split the cost. The more people we get to go in on it, the less it costs us individually.
Whatta ya think?

Great idea! I would think that she'd love it. I'd pitch in myself! *has 90 somethin' dollars*

Wo! You're rich!

If we can get 10 people together, it would only be $20.00 each.
