It looks like Google hasn't been around to our house since we replaced our VW Westfalia with a new 17B!.

I hear that for the next version of Streetview, Google is introducing a new feature where you can click on rv's and campers and have a virtual tour of the interior.

No, in Jim's case his link is to Google Maps. The resulting web page shows the address, and even the URL (web link address) includes the precise latitude and longitude (plus some other codes to specify Street View and which way to look).

When you're in Street View, if there are images from different dates available there is an extra small window with a timeline under it. For instance, in Jim's example, the main image is the current view (Sep 2014), but the small window shows Sep 2007 and also (using the slider along the line) offers Apr 2009 and Apr 2012. It looks like Jim's neighborhood gets checked out every two or three years.

The images are some sort of pop-up, so perhaps they don't appear if you have an overly enthusiastic pop-up blocker.

I think it may be a hint that he'd like cards and letters.
Besides no one messes around with Jim!

I'm not familiar with Streetside, so I checked it out. It looks we are pretty low on Bing's priority list, since Streetside doesn't come within 35 miles of our town!

And if needed, you will come back me up with your tire iron, right Sandra?

My various business listings too have my address. This is pretty common knowledge. A search online found your address too. There really is no hiding if someone wants to find you, short of becoming a hermit deep in the woods.

I prefer to not live my life in worry and fear, and rather look for the positive, and just deal with the negative as it is dealt to me.

Besides, I have a wife to do all my worrying for me.

I don't think you'd need my help. Plus if I did that, I'm afraid I'd just be laughed at. I'm one of those that needed a raised dinette to see out the front window.
