Week 7

Am loving google maps!  Have played with this a little in the past but am getting way too excited about being given time, information etc on how to play further.  Searched for my house (http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=hd3+4uy&sll=53.800651,-4.064941&sspn=17.916772,39.550781&ie=UTF8&ll=53.647659,-1.839319&spn=0.002111,0.004828&t=h&z=18&g=hd3+4uy) and it appears that the photos are at least 5 years old as my house hasn’t even been built yet.

It will take me 20 hours and 22 mins to get to Madrid (feels like it takes that long to get to work sometimes….) and is a distance of 1,272 miles.

Can see me using this website far more now – especially as I’ve discovered that it can draw me blue lines on a map to give me directions – big bonus for the other half as he knows I’m very, very useless at map reading!!  Used to use AA autoroute but suspect that this has become redundant now.

Have just created my own map (how exciting!!) for a marker at Gledholt Methodist Church to say that my Rainbow group meets there on Tuesday evenings.  http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&ll=53.652002,-1.798797&spn=0.008445,0.019312&t=h&z=16&msid=114852676744567417144.00045fce182135370496c

Right – off to see if I can play with Google Earth now….. watch this space………..
