Just recently I bought and Echo for my husband’s birthday.  He has put it in the kitchen.  So now I’ll be able to tell Alexa “name of Echo” what I need to add to the grocery list.  Also Alexa can tell us what our calendar looks like for the day.  We are still learning how to use it.  My husband asked her some driving directions the other day and she went mute.  I guess her brain doesn’t have a sense of direction.  If you’re interested just click the link below to check it out.
