Happy Thanksgiving.

How appropriate that this would also be my 100th post on this blog! I didn’t plan it this way, so that makes it even more appropriate.

We will be visiting family out of town tomorrow and have our Thanksgiving dinner then, so the wife and I are vegetating and watching a show dog show on TV. Oops, the dog show just completed, and now we are watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.

It looks like the parade was taped this morning in NY and just now being show in our time zone (mid afternoon).

Anyway, we will be having some ham and vegetables later today, and call it good for this day since we will be travelling a total of 4 hours tomorrow.

Again,

Happy Thanksgiving.

Google Doodles for 22 Feb

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on 2012/02/22 by rmolby

OK, as promised two posts ago, I would start looking at Google Doodles and commenting on them. I have decided I will add some commentary on historical events to my discussions here in addition to the Google Doodles.

I have always been a history buff, and I think we can all learn something from history. A well rounded education consists of little bits and pieces of history that round out our knowledge, and by extension, our personality. A well rounded personality makes us a better person, and also makes us less gullible, and turns on your BS meter, and finally also should cause you to be more curious about the world around you.

Here we go:

2012 – Google Doodle – Celebrating Heinrich Hertz‘s 155th birthday.

Heinrich Hertz Birthday

2011 – History – An earthquake measuring 6.3 in magnitude strikes Christchurch, New Zealand, killing 181 people

2010 – Google Doodle – A rather plain but descriptive doodle portraying the figure skating of the Vancouver Olympics.

2010 Olympics

2009 – NONE

2008 – NONE

2007 – NONE

2006 – Google Doodle – A rather simple doodle, depicting alpine skiing as the honored sport of the day at the Torino Olympics.

2006 Olympics

2005 – NONE
