Where we are. the Big Map.

Might be wrong, but Elemental might be glad of a friend.  It looks fairly remote where he/she is.  Although, suppose you have to like the quite life is you're going to live 'on a rock in the atlantic'.

Apparently it helps to 'sign in' in order to edit the map .  I've put you back on dry land Hollie Hock where it says Monmouth.  Hope this is nearer to home for you.

Hollie Hock, I'm very concerned about your situation at the moment.  You're drifting out to sea off the north Wales coast.  I did try to drag you back to shore, but was unsuccessful.  Maybe some else could try and get you home.

It is fun. Keeps us amused when it's midwinter out there and housework seems a step too far.

Your a woman 'after my own heart' (if you know that saying) - heaven forbid that I should have to do some boring household chores!

There's getting rather a lot a balloons on that map, its not suprising some are moving around.  As I think you said TT, its good fun - given me a few laughs.

Found myself in Rotherham this morning.  Must have been a heavy night, I don't remember a thing!   I'm back home in Cumbria now.

Lorraine, what I like about this Google lark, is being able to pinpoint the street, house, etc, in a particular street.  Old boss, who I fell out with, moved and I checked where he had gone to and, oh, how the mighty had fallen.  Had obviously fallen on hard times.  Aahh.  Couldn't have happened to a nicer person. One of the nouveau riche.

TT - What goes around, comes around - as they say.

Quite agree with you TT -  I love maps, we've had many family discussions around the dinner table with a globe, map or atlas.  The younger members of the family aren't always so enthusiastic, but usually find they join in after a while.  I often say 'shall I get the atlas' when the question of where a certain place is in the world/country.  Then they groan 'no its ok, Mum, where not that interested', but out comes the atlas anyway.

Just been looking where everyone is on the map and I noticed a place in France, between Reims and Metz, called 'Verdun'!  Is there any connection with the place and your avitar Verdun?  

Just mentioned this to OH now he's giving me a potted history of the 'Treaty of Verdun' - typical he would know about it - he's like walking enclylopedia
