Google Earth and the world is mine!

I am thrilled. I can now spend my evenings in virtual travel throughout the globe with Google Earth’s updated version which I just installed on both my laptop and tower computers. (My Kindle does not seem to have an app for it.) Google Earth was easy to install, almost instantaneous. It works like a dream. I want to check out the ancient lava flows in the American southwest, and visit places I missed out on seeing in real life, like the Antarctic. My travel options are limited only by the circumference of the earth! Maybe I will go back to Mali, West Africa, although those memories will be hard to revisit.

I bought a Logitech F310 Gamepad so that I can take full advantage of the Google earth flight simulator.

Almost since its inception in 2007, I have had Google Earth on my computer, but I was too tasked with other life responsibilities to enjoy it, it was a little glitchy, and it hurt my feelings (and potentially my wallet) by showing my home with the previous owner's worn roof and neglected yard. Now, I see that Google Earth has updated the image of my street to show my new landscaping, the trees that I planted, and my new roofing; which will make selling my house much more accurate and profitable. I had to write to Google Earth about three times over the past several years regarding this matter, but now my house is spiffy from space.
