Big Brother???

This is so strange. Google has a map service that allows you to go to street level and "drive" down the street. They only have it set up in a few cities. Ms. A decided to play with it and lo and behold! She is in one of the shots!! It seems that Google sends a truck around that takes pictures. She happened to be sitting at a red light when the truck went past (she never even knew!) She was just playing online and noticed a car that looks like hers! On the site, you can rotate the picture, zoom ect. We zoomed in and yup! it's her car...complete with her driving (a blurry fuzz that you can't see) the dings, lack of hubcap and scratches (I swear she owns bumper cars!!!) How weird don'tcha think!!!! DH thnks that it is just BIG BROTHER looking at us. I think it's too cool, coincidental and funny!
I'll get back to quilting as soon as I get through spring cleaning, taxes (haven't even started), binding three quilts and getting caught up at school. I am so behind having lost 10 days. I am very grateful I got to spend the time with my dad and family but it left me scrambling.

I'm so glad that your dad was okay.

I'll have to check out that Google map service--wonder if they have it set up around here?

The Google map street view has helped me vicariously enjoy New York. I've never been there, but would just love to. Every time I see a New York street on tv or in the news, I go to Google and "drive" up and down the street. When the crane collapsed there, I was able to see what the buildings looked like before the damage.

mmm - yes for the 'creeps' out there this doesn't sound like a good thing.

But for those of us who just like some fun, interest, change of pace, 'something different' it's great entertainment.

that could be a quiit! you in a car, with a map to fabric shops....... okay, guess everything isn't a quilt?

I'm glad that your dad is okay.

Oh my! Good thing she wasn't doing anything illegal. I thought they had a limit of how close they could be so they wouldn't show recognizable people or cars. I think the criminals should be followed faithfully, but I prefer to keep my privacy!
