    Just been looking at this on Yahoo.
    Some of the comments on there are a real shame :(

    I wish I had this as a kid, it would have been great. :D

    It has been playing up, I guess down to the server being overloaded.

    I see Santa driving the sled, then the mapping stops.

    Was working in Google maps though, the last time I looked, just not Google Earth.

    Google maps works fine for me, google earth doesn't, but I don't know what language I am getting the error message in to read it

    A bit lame though without the animation. Same with the Android app.

    Google earth keeps locking up on my laptop.

    Maybe he'll pop by your place on the way home if he's got anything left,

    Maybe the recession has hit him hard this year so he has to be more sparing with his gifts.

    What a relief!!

    For a minute there I was slightly worried that Santa was discriminating against the north of England.

    Santa, Thatcher, tory, Satan.

    I think there might be an anagram or two in there :D

    And fyo, the "he does exist" bit was for the kids :mad:

    ;)

    I'm knackered now.
    I've just took the dog for an hour and a half walk :eek:

    Have a good one :thumbsup:

    Surely it would be better if he just placed orders online and got Yodel to deliver the goods. Save him a fortune on reindeer feed and he could have the day off and put his boots up.

    OK maybe not Yodel but I'm sure he could get a discount at DHL.

    But then we'd have the problem of about 1.5 billion present being stuck at the deport waiting for a re-attempted delivery! :laugh:

    The best sort of time to walk your mutt if you want to let him off his lead in suburban Brum :smashin:
    And I must have been in the mood.
    It's normally about half that.

    I was up at 7 too.

    I can't see today being a long one :)

    I trust you're having a good one mate? :smashin:

    My kids phone them up every year to get an update as to Santa's whereabouts before they go to bed.
