I think I may be the last person to know this. We'll see.
I went to Google Maps yesterday to find a friend's house in Ireland. I had heard that you can see it but I didn't realize how well. I then typed in my home address (in the box at the top of the page) and of course found it on the map. I used my mouse button and as I scrolled down, my house came into focus from an aerial view. Then, a picture of my house popped up. A real picture of my house! Our garage door was even open and I could see my old van. At first I thought it was cool and then it kind of freaked me out. And to make it a little spookier, one of my children is in the photo. Very blurry but it is my oldest, I think.
So, go to Google and check out the maps. Look up the house you grew up in. Look at your street on the map. You will be amazed at the technology. Now, am I the last person to know this?
