breaking bad

Google street view

I think I saw the Google street camera today, in Waltham on the Wolds, near Melton Mowbray. It was a car with a sort of tower on its roof, with cameras on top. I waved at it from my car as we passed it - hope I get immortalised.

Meanwhile, this is my grandma's house, which I was born in. It's a 2-up 2-down council house. But they were nice houses, very professionally built.

My poem the Singing Ringing Tree is about that house. In fact that tree which obscures most of the view is the Singing Ringing tree. It's eerie being able to walk around my childhood on the computer screen.
