    bbqpitstop had an idea of having a map with push pins on it to show the location of SMF members. I looked at the map and placed a push pin on my general location. I think it is a neat idea and will be fun to see where everyone is at on the map. This is new to me, so I hope everything works out as far as saving the location....

    click on "add to collection" add a push pin then click on "save" in the box that has popped up... that should get you close

    you can right click on the map and click on add push pin also

    This is new to me too, we'll keep working until we get it figured out. You may need to sign in to msn live to be able to edit the map... ???

    Here is what I did...

    1. I followed the link I was given
    2. I signed in to the live search (msn sign in)
    3. I added a push pin
    4. I saved the push pin
    5. I clicked on "share"
    6. I clicked on "view permalink"
    7. I copied that link and pasted it to the post

    See how that works

    Could the powers that be perhaps make this a sticky so it does not get buried??? Does it make sense to be in the ROLL CALL section???
