Danno, Would you be so kind as to remove me #1 - the one to remove is the one that also has the note "really cool". THANK YOU!

As I followed directions on attempt #2, I've been a split personality since last night. It'll be good to get corrected!

The Wacky Shack is plotted!

Massachusetts is a state chock-full of old houses (especially Bridgewater!). I am hoping to see more members making themselves known.

I got my little person right in front of my house. The property goes off on a diagonal slant. My land is cleared out deeper than my neighbors. Though you can't tell it ends at the stream which runs behind the house. The roof color is still grey (I now have a RED roof)....this photo has to be at least 2-3 years old......

I guess the metro areas have more detailed satellite photos. On mine, I can see my house clear enough to know when the picture was taken: probably August of '05, after the new stoop was in but before I built the table for the deck and bricked in the back yard.

I could find my property but couldn't figure out how to get the little guy there. Sometimes, I hate computers. :oops:

just click. you can drag the map if you click and hold. but if you just click it puts a marker there. SOOO, zoom in as far as you want FIRST. (If it says it can't zoom in further on the satellite mode, then click on "maps" mode and zoom in as far as you want. I believe ALL the maps should go plenty close.) and click where you want your marker SECOND (like I said before, just a quick ONE click)
