My Dad is in his 80′s, and loves to forward jokes and interesting stories to me. Me and several hundred other people in his email list.
From time to time, I’ll share them with you. I hope you enjoy them. If you do, leave a comment, that would make my Dad’s day (yes, he reads JustFindIt4U).

And, thanks Dad!
Most of us have been amazed at the Google Earth program. My Dad sent me a link for a site that is quicker, and a lot more fun to play with. My Daughter and I plugged in famous addresses (as well as our own), and the program brought us right to what we were looking for. The fun part is watching the evolution of the pictures as you type in the location. Try it for yourself, type in a number or letter one at a time, and watch the pictures that pop up. Very cool!
Our favorite address was this one: we typed in 1600, and it showed us Broadway in NYC. When we added a “P”, it switched to Madrid, Spain. Adding an “e”, brought us to Cusco, Peru. Adding “n”, took us to the White House (1600 Pennsylvania Ave). Once inside, we clicked on the rooms to take a virtual tour. We even caught glimpses of the camera man a few times. Have fun, let us know what you found, and thanks Dad!
