Hi, where do I go for help?  I've been trying to have a private "hangout" with one other person.  However, when he calls me, I hear the 5-tone notification sound - but don't know how to pick up the call and start the hangout with him!  I'm using Firefox on a PC for these hangouts.  Thanks for any tips!

Featured on todays FrogBlog! Read about "Amphibian Love" on the blog (and please share with your friends too!) :D #savethefrogs http://www.savethefrogs.com/frogblog/frog-gifts-merchandise/amphibian-love/
San Jose artist Leah Jay has created a beautiful book called “Amphibian Love”, filled with dazzling nature art to help endangered animals. Amphibians are vital to the earth's ecosystems, and their loss is an indicator of the worldwide trend in decreasing biodiversity – the “Sixth Extinction”.
