a fascinating discovery

I was away from home during late December and early January. To pass the
time, I introduced my hosts to Google Earth. Everyone had a great time
looking up old residences, current homes and so on.

Later on I got bored and tried what John Grimshaw described: I tried to find
the homes of some PBS members. I also tried it on my own address. 

When I tried my own address, it found a house down the street - one
obviously not a gardener's house! When I moved the view to center on my
house, I noticed that the image presented was several years old. 

What we were viewing was the free service; is there a for-pay service which
has current views?

a live-view Google Earth!
