2012 Travels Map Gadget issue

There is a known bug with Google Maps and it just hit our 2012 Travels Map Gadget. Gadgets are the static items on the left of our blog like 'Our Favorite Things' and 'Current Location'. The issue deals with how the KML feed interprets one of the markers. If you click on 'View Larger Map' below the empty map a larger map will appear and all the markers are there so we think the map is fine.

We plan to leave the gadget there, hopefully it will be fixed soon. We tried using MapQuest for the code to embed in our gadget and it is very difficult to use for this purpose. If you have a map for travel which mapping service do you use (google, mapquest, other)?

Bob called Winegard on the satellite dish issue since they have Saturday hours but we did not get a callback so that will probably happen on Monday. Watching TV with commercials is eye opening. First of all the commercials are SOOOO loud. Secondly, there are so many of them. Some of the shows we missed we might be able to catch the rebroadcasts since they are on USA, A&E, etc. which repeats the shows. We really didn't do much on Saturday since we were waiting on the callback, besides Jo wasn't feeling good and Bob felt a little pookie himself so we just took it easy.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo
