I just got this in a newsletter from Mike Holt.

If you go to Google, type in your phone number, area-exchange-number, and hit enter, you get your name address and maps!

There is a way to "opt out" which I did. You have to click on the phone icon, and fill in a form.
I don't have anything to hide, but that bothers me.

Google could not find me.

I have had my number for 4 or 5 years, but I do not give it out much.

While you're at it, take a look at an aerial photo of your house.

(Non-USA folks, use coordinates to find yours...)

I posted a similer message under telco wiring. Ya know what, I posted my telco # and it worked. However my old Telco # has been around for years. It was my old business # and it just has an answering machine on it.

That's great!

I feel like I'm getting motion sickness if I stare at some of the aerial photos too long
