Just a quickie...

Today Rachel and I were walking around Kings Park in Perth, imagine the scene for a minute, blue skies, birds singing, temperature at 35 degrees plus, then, what's that? out of the corner of my eye I've seen something, something that when standing in a park I wouldn't expect, what could it be? it must be technology related somehow or I would just zone out, yes, I see it now, it's, it's it's a Google car! A google car taking pictures of the causeway, but wait, how could you spot that from all the way up here Ross?

I tell you, if any government agencies want me to spy on foreign countries, I think I could do it without leaving my bedroom, just put a new mobile phone or some innovative new technology in that country and my eyes will home in on it. Damn i'm observant!

So ladies and gents, here it is, the Google car, in Perth....

and just to prove it wasn't easy to spot, here was the view, un-zoomed....
