nth Power - I didn't realize you lived in Torrance.  I spent many a "party" year in Redondo.  (From the ages of 20 - 23).  Man, were those fun times.  Prospect Avenue, if you know where that is.

No you are not.... "stupid" that is.

Scroll down past the map and you can enter all your info right there.  Just type in your shoutout.  Then, to see it, just click on the little orange dot pointing to your name.

It actually wouldn't take my real zip code, so I threw in the one about four streets north of where I live. Further proof I live in the horse latitudes of Addison.

I'm not too far from Prospect Ave.  It's less than a 1/2 mile or so away, I'd say.  It is a nice area.  How could you leave such a place?! smile

The marker is about a mile NE of where I live.

The satellite image must be a few years old though, as there's nothing but forest where my house should be.

And I'm pretty sure the first houses in my development went up in 2002.

Oh come on!  I admitted that I live in Georgia.  Of course I did post the disclaimer that I wasn't from there, but still.  I'm sure there are some nice places in Florida, even if I haven't ever seen them. :lol:

Can the mod in charge (disarm, I believe) fix my quote?  I had to enter it again when I posted my pic and now it is on there twice, back to back.  Thanks.
