Google Maps has improved somewhat since then. Now if you pan and zoom to the view you want and put your cursor on the place you want to mark, you can right click your mouse and choose "What's here?" Google will 1) tell you what's there, and 2) put a tack on that spot. Once you've done that, click the link button (looks like a little piece of chain) and copy/paste the URL into your email. 

(Hmm... I don't know what Mac users without right-clickable mice are supposed to do.)

is on an imploded computer now and my mind is a steel sieve.
