Google Doodle Doo!!
As I'm housebound at the moment, small events that perk up the day are giving me more pleasure than usual. So, I was pleased to wake up this morning to find that Google had come up trumps with its interactive Doodle to celebrate Jim Hensen's 75th Birthday. Louis and I spent a little bit of time playing to try to see if the 'E' would repeatedly eat the 'L'. Someone along the line was certainly right about little things pleasing little minds.
Anyway I've been meaning to refresh your memory and show my all-time favourite Google Doodles for some while now. With all this time to hand it seems like the ideal opportunity. The way that such diverse events are celebrated appeals to my strong trait for eclectism. I particularly like the fact that normal special anniversaries are ignored. If the creators want to celebrate someone's 87th birthday rather than the centennial date who are we to argue?
Did you know that Louis Braille was born on 4th January before seeing this. No I didn't either.
At the time that this Earth Day 2010 doodle was published I was out of internet range making mosaics on Dartmoor with my buddies. How right on is that!
