    I selected a nice colored globe map and took a couple of days and
    looked up the countries of the forum members that have listed there
    country. Trying to vision how another member would travel from
    place to place.Locating the waterways that have been mentioned.
    Like seeing the Maldives closer to India,there appears to be a body
    of water that divides Greece. The complex puzzle of countries and
    the difference in each.

    I 've always had a knack for classifying. Having a pin for each member/friend around the globe sounds pretty neat.

    Google Earth ... That would have alot of pins. :D

    I have a file that lists all the nuclear blasts known since Trinity. The one's at Eniwetok, especially Mike, the first thermonuclear explosion is clearly visible on GE. Look for a lagoon where an island once stood.

    I'm typing this from 32°40'21.53"N 97° 3'27.57"W

    The members that share pictures and other information would not
    require that many pins.I predict in future gps pins could ring you up
    on skype,you having the choice of picking up. Joe has started a new
    thing with lat and log,@ Joe could they use google earth see your place.

    His last visit was a week ago, but his last post is awhile back. I hope he 's okay, both physically and emotionally.

    Yes, me too. Last I remember, he stood in to the neck with challenges. Hope he's doing fine.

    Maybe he drops a line, when he see this...?

    As for the topic, I like the idea of having the world map on a wall, and setting a pin where I know people are. And their time zone...

    @Riaff,I have a greater view of where you are,and the distance
    to India. Would you call It a ferry ride,how many miles to nearest
    shore. You know you was a big factor in getting the members to
    have closer contact,you being so far away started everyone posting
    you.Your personality,smart and funny,your knowledge.

    I actually got curious enough to look up Maldives on Google Earth. Watch out for tidal waves, Rifaa. There's no place to run to!

    Just copy the coordinates into Google, you should get a map. I think Joe lives near where "King of the Hill" is based.

    Thanks loose, what you said means a lot.

    I would love to discuss everything and show it.
    Problem is I just have too many work to do than just and resize photo's and upload it.
    I would do this but as I can breath easily.
    It is really too much being the eldest. I know I can just forget about the family as they all are mature and with life plus good jobs. But I see they do not get along from time to time, I have to step in to get them live peacefully together.

    And of course I have mom and dad to take care off.
    But I am happy with my life.

    U know there are lot to show you guys about Maldives. I hope I could do it soon.

    We have ferries around now between the islands but not India. India is closest and plane time 45 minutes to Trivendrum. 50 min to Lanka. As I recall 6 Hrs to Singapore.

    We have small planes by sea and land to travel north and south. 3 Local air fields. Another Internationale airport is being made in Addu city. The southern tip of Maldives.

    The closest to Male's city is a 3 min ferry ride to Villingili island, which now is being considered as part of Male' itself

    Not sure Birmingham's famous for much these days. It's the second or third biggest city in the UK, and used to have a lot of engineering but now it's like any other big city.
    The furthest I've been is the Canary Islands which is down by the equator, much too hot for me. ;)
