Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I found myself with Goole Maps? Cool!

This is the drive where I live! Check out the almost lower left corner for the cyclist....that's me!! If you can be seen from orbit, does it mean your hi vis gear works?

Nice shot. I just checked my neighborhood, but I was nowhere to be found. I guess because it was daytime.

That's pretty cool! I wish they had my house on there, it would be cool to see my farm from space.

I checked it's not, they have an image, but it's not anywhere close like Tom's, you can bearly make out the main road and it won't zoom any closer.

No, that's just a blanket that the government painted to look like a military installation. The real Area 51 is under it
