I was just wondering if you could see the woods & the house on the same picture.
Yes, but if you go bird's eye it jumps to the highest resolution and they are just too far apart.

And the bird's eye view:

Here is what it looked like at virtual earth prior to the birds eye view.

... what is really funny is if you zoom in in aerial on location (1), the woods, you will see the Renton Park Elementary school before they tore it down. Then switch to bird's eye view and you see it demolished.

Seth says
... what is even more interesting is that there are 4 different pictures of each view ... from different angels of the compass. you can click the compass to get them.

I use FF 1.07 & typed the address in the right hand input box. It may be the way I typed it in, or the punctuation. Google is good at parsing an address in no matter how I type it in.

Hmmm... I tried typing in you address into the display presented from the about box and it put me in the middle of the forest. Do you live in the middle of a forest? Anyway I think the thing is buggy. I hope Google comes up with a better one.
i can't duplicate that result, i typed my address and it went right there ... well maybe next door, but close enough.  Last time i checked Google's is not this high of resolution.  Thing about this one i don't like is how it navigates, it's not smoothe, i miss the claw movement.
