  <h3>Find The Location</h3>
  <input type="text" name="FindMeOnGoogleMapStart" id="FindMeOnGoogleMapStart" placeholder="Enter Address, Postal Code, City, etc." onclick="document.getElementById(this.id).value= '';">
  <button class="calculate">Submit</button>
  <button class="reset">Reset</button>
  <!-- Google Map-->
  <div id="map"></div>
</div>
