Thing 17. Task 1 Google maps

The things that one can pick up from the computer are remarkable. It just needs the know-how and the time. I'm sure there's millions of things that I could be interested in, but there are other things that need to be done rather than sitting at the computer "playing"!

These are remarkable. Being able to zoom in and presumably download pictures that people have put onto the programme since these had the names of the photogtaphers attached.

According to Google maps.
It will take me 19 minutes to drive the 6.7 miles from home to Addenbrookes Hospital (that's according to a quiet time of day when there are no traffic jams or roadworks!)
It will take me I hour 49 minutes to walk that distance.
This is about right.
A few years ago when the snow came down and the traffic stood still. I walked and sometimes slithered. Leaving the hospital at about 8 p.m. I got home just after 10 p.m.

  1. Congratulations on your blog winning the cake (or "taking the biscuit" as they say.) Your two hour slither home sounds like a journey out of Lord of the Rings.
