[PS how do you post the google map box like you do]


Google Maps kludge with [gmap] tags.

(1) Go to Google Maps, and center the map on the location you want to embed.

(2) Click on the Google Maps menu (three bars).

(3) Click on "Share or embed maps" from the dropdown menu.

(4) Click on "Embed map".

(5) Copy the long code between https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb= and ". For the map above, it looks like !1m18!1m12!1m3!1d93532.55571272006!2d-78.93448215309492!3d42.89621760304876!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x89d3126152dfe5a1%3A0x982304a5181f8171!2sBuffalo%2C%20NY!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sus!4v1607881637462!5m2!1sen!2sus ,

(6) Paste the code between the [gmap] and [/gmap] tags.

If you want to embed a Google Streetview location, do the same thing.

The back of this grocery/party store happens to be near Caribou, Maine. Yeah, I know, not all that interesting. Sorry, but they can't all be gems.

Wait, are you saying that IS an interesting scene? Hey, I'm not from Down East. I can't be expected to know these things.

oh yeah, I wouldn't use that bathroom - or rather, if you did use the bathroom in there, you don't have to worry about the vaccine kind of thing

We were cleaning out my mom's house and came across this painting that I recall hanging in my grandma's house decades ago. Never thought much about it. Turns out the church was just around the corner from where she lived in Bowmore, Islay, Scotland from 1910 until she got on the boat in 1914. Google Street View link below.
