I discovered the most amazing thing yesterday on a friend's blog. OK, maybe I'm just really behind the times, but I had no idea that Google had one-upped its satellite view of your street to now include a 360° view of the front of your house and block. I immediately checked our old address in Aberdeen, and my heart skipped a beat when I saw my beloved orchid in the front window. Zoom in and you'll see its glorious whiteness too. Using my powers of deduction, the panoramic shot was probably taken sometime in July or August 2008 after the speed bumps came to Orchard Road, which this blog entry puts around late June, but before we moved in late August when I gave one of my friends the orchid for safe keeping.
I know it probably sounds really silly, but seeing our old home so unexpectedly up-close and personal took my breath away. I just stared in awe at the image. Technology is amazing.
