  1. Some really great ideas here-thank you! I can see the kids enjoying the Rocksmith bundle as much as their dad! I recently got my dad an updated PC, and have installed Skype to help him keep in touch. He doesn’t have a webcam yet, so that might be a good choice for him. I find dads become more difficult to buy for the older they get. Another nice idea I saw recently for fathers/grandfathers was Tracfone’s SVC phone. Apparently it is really easy to use, with all the features aimed at seniors, like large text and buttons, hearing aid compatible and simple navigation asking for basic yes and no answers. What I liked about this as an option, was that it only cost $15, so if he doesn’t end up using it, it’s not $100+ down the drain. Now that I have him using a computer, a cellphone may just be the next step!
