    Nice work – thanks.

    Using Google’s free MyMaps feature is a great way to set up a map to show off local facilities, attractions etc. It now shows off photos of the area that are in Picasa Albums.

    There are tons of ways and ideas to start a profitable home business. but for the beginner, its tough to know where to start. This looks like a great book to either find an idea or spark an idea that might linger in the mind of an aspiring entrepreneur. good stuff.
