Sozobe, you mac person, you.... I found my area by doing the address in google search. I can't seem to do the usual control-save image in another window trick, just getting a white patch that asks if I want to draw a line...

how do you capture the photo to transfer it here?


(I had google earth until about six weeks ago when I lost my hard drive, and haven't re-downloaded it yet).

osso, hit shift+apple sign+4 at the same time to make a screenshot,
then the picture will automatically be saved to your computer.

Right click <save>?

Its possible that they have banned linking because of the value of the data that comprises the photo osso

Ha, that brought me to eBay....

(I'll be back after I figure it out, and show a few of the places I've lived.)

And, CJ, you know I love the area you live in.

These are High Tatras, the most beautiful mountains in the world. I spent every summer and every winter holidays there- mushroom hunting, hiking, making castles in the pine trees knotty roots and princesses out of pine cones.

Our cottage is in the upper side. Below the road is gamekeeper's lodge. He always takes care of injured animals, there's always some deer, some birds, once he even had an orphaned bear cub for a few days before they figured out what to do with him.

Below Kokavsky most - the bridge across the river there, is the best area to pick mushrooms. It's also the way towards the sheep farm high up on a hill. You can get fresh milk, acidic milk (zhinchica - something like buttermilk, but ahem. better. indescribable), cheese and bryndza (special cheese of unpasteurized sheep milk. recommended with gnocchi and bacon. and buttermilk).
waaaaaaah, gotta go back soon!

Grrrrr. I've tried it about thirty times so far, gotten a few clicks. Finally figured out adding a space bar and then lifting the space bar got me the whole page.. hah, address and all.
Will play around more later.

That is my entire city...impressive huh. Someday when I am feeling brave, I shall venture outside it's limits. I've heard that they let women drive and vote now, that will be neat to see.

O'Bill, a trailer, in Florida? Will you be out of there before hurricane season starts?

Great to be so close to the water though. Haven't been back to Florida in way too long, I miss the ocean.
Yep. I'm trailer trash... and loving it! I missed the ocean, bad. I ride my bike there daily now and EOE is right about the relaxation. The beach closes an hour before dusk, so when I go (usually at 11pm) I have the balcony on the bluff as well as the beach all to myself. The last hurricane eroded the beach to the point where the waves crash right up to the staircase at high tide and it is mesmerizing. I've also discovered that at about 11 miles an hour; a guy can ride his bike down the beach if he carefully follows the rolling waters edge as the wet, but not soaked sand is very hard. It's a great workout that requires full concentration (or you sink in dry sand or go swimming when you miss your track)(so far, so good). Love it.

My Aunt bought the place to crash at while she looked for a real home... and fell in love with the location. She ended up renting out the "real home" she purchased and bought one of the fancier trailers on the water's edge in this same park. Spectacular views... literally 10 ft. from the water. The park is co-op owned, and they years ago voted into their bylaws that it can never sell without 100% unanimous approval of every owner... which means anyone who wants to cash in a rich offer (they get lots of them) from a big developer is bumming... at least for as long as she lives. She neither needs the dough, nor could she ever realistically afford another place so close to the water. Since this one was so cheap; she keeps it for guests and extra storage. I'd buy it in a heartbeat if I was qualified... but it'll be awhile before I meet the 55 yr old requirement.

Anyway, the difference is essentially the same as when I went from a Z3 Roadster back to a Miata. Virtually none. The only difference is the lack of prestige associated with being trailer trash (or driving a cheaper car). Laughing Like I care. I'm keeping my eyes out for a Miata to trade the Benz in for now!

As for hurricanes; no worries. The two I rode out in the bomb-shelter-like Condo a couple years ago convinced me never to do it again anyway. It's a serious pain living without electricity, even if your structure isn't damaged. Should a cane come this way; I'll simply visit Wisconsin (or maybe I'll get really lucky and it will coincide with a gathering). (By June; Joe Nation should owe me a nice dinner. :wink: )

you don't need more than fits into one trailer anyway. i'd gladly live in one by the sea, sounds great to me.


this is from one of the mountain peaks in Slovakia: Kralova Hola (King's mountain) in 1988 or so. From the right: my dad, my sister, me, family friend Mirek Zikmund (who traveled with his friend Jiri Hanzelka around the world by car in 1940s and 50s - most countries of the world).

My parent's property is much more interesting. The darkness is a lake.

Both these photos are years old and winter shots. hmmph.

Dag, this is great seeing everyone's place. And I love that black and white photo!
