    Apparently I am a curator at the London Museum of Natural History. Very cool as my title comes with a “Sir.”

    It’s even worse for me. They have the site still on Blog*Spot. I was worried about that when Google bought them out–they clearly give preference to Blog*Spot sites.

    Put your phone number into Google, I dare you! be sure to include area code, such as; 800-555-0000. Then check out the map to your house. Your house will even have a great big red star on it.

    Anyone with access to your phone number can now get a map, complete with directions, to your front door. Not a big deal? Tell that to a single woman who lives alone. This is not a good thing.

    ps. I’ll be there at 8:00, have dinner ready!

    Didn’t work for me! It turns up my vita, by no map. Now, one could get a map elsewhere, I guess.
