Thanks, Lawrie


By the way, anyone using the Mac only needs to click on the ADDRESS itself in a mail message and the popup menu offers "Show Map" as one of the options. Clicking that takes you straight to that address in Google Maps. Don't worry, PC users - you'll get this feature in a year or two :-)

Google's Street View was a Spotted Dove on the wire over the street a few doors up from my house :-) Go to 20 Reid Street, Northcote 3070, tilt the view so you can see the sky to the north, the flying rat is sitting right over the middle of the road in front of 18 Reid Street. I think there's a White-plumed Honeyeater just south of there on the wires, but Google's face
