St. Patrick’s Day Fun with Google Earth

This is probably late in the day for some of you, but I thought I would share a few important tips about Google Earth with regards to St. Patrick’s Day.

The following YouTube video will show you all this and more:

Note, I first saw the tree tribute to St. Patrick’s at GoogleSightseeing (they have the location there). Music in the video is called “The Girl’s Set” from the album “Live at Painted Sky” by Banshee in the Kitchen.
