ARGH - that's what you get for tinkering too late at night...

I failed to realize exactly why they named it "My Maps" - it is a tool to allow me to create my own maps and share them...

If folks want to send me names and some geographic location, I'll add them to this map. If you are uncomfortable specifying an exact street address, a city and state/city and country should suffice.

Dual-homed people can specify both locations I guess...

Sorry about that,
