Go to Google earth - you can zoom in a lot closer - and no pins. ("Cliffside" lat=50.16N , lon=-5.07W

You can even see into the bedroom windows!

Because they're my bedroom windows so therefore I should know what is inside them?


.... oh! and I don't have curtains on them because it blocks the view.

but the point of curtains is that you can open them when you want them to be open

they don't have to stay closed the whole time

you can get a mechanical whatsname to make it even easier

probably by now you can get a remote control to open them too

I've just looked and there are only a few roads in East Malling. I assume you are on Sweets Lane.

Where do you want to be placed?

Is it true that all the 'Piddle' names in Dorset were changed to 'Puddle' because Queen Victoria felt it was indecent? I always have a little smile when we drive past on our way from Devon to Sussex.

I have fought with the programme but apart from letting me put a marker in the middle of Mill Street, it won't save it. It won't recognise East Malling nor Ditton, so I have placed you in Maidstone, nor the best place to be, but as close as I can get until I work out how to get the ...ing thing to do waht it is supposed to.
BTW, my 1784 ancestors were married in Maidstone, they were from Boughton Monchelsea, but moved to Plumstead in the early 1800's. I have an aunt who lives in Harrietsham.

I've done it! That is to say, I think I've successfully logged on to the OBs map on Frappr. What happens next?
