Anyone else on google earth?

Google Maps has a really old picture from before we lived here. Google Earth, however, shows the big silver camper on the driveway and my old BX on the road outside (no Ami or Aixam yet). Our Lass is obviously still at work because the BX is parked a few feet further back than usual, revealing - and I realise I should not in any way be proud of this - an LHM stain on the tarmac which is clearly visible from space ?

What in chod's name is that terrifying mural in the background all about?

The guy that painted that stayed in my flat for a couple of weeks back in 2013 (maybe 2014?). But seconded on the terrifying.

I passed a car like the Google one a few months ago but I'm sure it had Apple or something on it.

I passed a couple of Apple vans with all the gizmos on the roof etc last year on the M5. They were driving like ***ts in the middle lane, sums up Apple I suppose.

It was done to commemorate the Commonwealth Games held in Glasgow a few years ago. It does look a bit weird...

If you look closely just under it you can see what I was driving at the time.

Google hasnt been back to my area since 2009. On the day they passed my mk4 cortina 2.0S is sat in my then driveway with an empty space beside it as the then mrs cortinadave had recently run off with some bloke from Dunfermline.

I filled her space in the drive with an SD1 a few weeks later :)

GTA is, where it was time before where it is now. HHR is long-gone, written off by my sister in law last year when it got icy.

They've not updated the side streets around here for a long time. The overhead has been done but the car's under the carport. Edit:  Their site shows they're going to be doing this area on the streets again sometime between now and August. I need to clean the concrete again.

Google made the unforgivable error of depriving the global community of the view of my mighty Mazda by updating their view of Wharf Road N1 (admittedly the street changes dramatically every 3 months).

My parents' shonk is however temporarily immortalised (which is of course the best way to be immortalised) on this here tinterweb.

They're moving to sunny Scarborough next week and leaving all this behind them.

Except the magnificent Pluriel, naturally. The Pluriel's going with them. The Errounos made its dignified departure yesterday?

To be brought back to stunning, as new condition. Or have holes poked in it and cut up into small bits.
