Google Earth

I just downloaded Google Earth. It's pretty awesome. It's basically a satellite photo search engine that you can use to look at pretty much anywhere in the world. I found my trailer in our trailer park, and I looked at the house my family lived in when my dad was stationed in Alaska, with the shop across the street where our famous family car chase ended. You can even see the blue roofs on the sheds at my parent's farm. I'm not sure how often the photos update, as the ones of my trailer appeared to have my wife's car in the driveway, but the ones of the family farm seem to be missing a couple of outbuildings that were put up in the last two or three years.
