It’s a small thing among all the other annoyances in life, but ever since I’ve been using mapping software the marker for my address is about 7 houses away from where we really live. I’ve always wanted to grab that darn pointer and put it where it belonged. Mr. Monk would have been proud of my desire.
I even bought a GPS device that accepted corrections so it drove me exactly to my home, safe and sound. (Can I help it if I get lonely in the car sometimes and like listening to various voices from the British Isles?)
So, imagine my delight when I noticed a new feature on Google Maps tonight — the word “edit” next to the green marker. Further playing around and suddenly, my house was where it belonged and all was right with the world.
Their promo video is pretty good too.

Congratulations on the edit, and fyi, I’ll be watching new eps of Monk. Did you know I 365ed him? http://44for365.blogspot.com/2006/04/61365-tony.html
If I read that in the past, I would not have known what you were talking about. Clare and I watched our first Monk episodes on the plane ride to Chicago for my mother-in-law’s funeral a couple of months ago. We were hooked and are slowly catching up by renting the past seasons from Netflix.
Monk is good stuff!
And I have to confess to having started watching Psych too, just because it’s right after Monk.
I’ve never seen Monk in its time slot – just DVDs and on the internet. I’ll have to check out Psych.
Matt: I’m a total Psych fan too. I started watching it for Dulé Hill. It’s absolutely adorable.
