Happy Birthday, Google!
Today is Google's 13th birthday. Bon anniversaire, Google! I am surprised you are already 13. A teenager. Wow. You've grown up so fast. I hope you are used more than usual today. Or should I wish you the day off? No, that would never do. I don't know what I did before you arrived. How did I ever find out anything? Names of movies. Ages of actors and actresses. What the euro is worth today? The weather in Paris or Provence. Before I could google The Sabbatical Chef and find out if anyone has linked me to their blogs.
I have even turned you into a regular -er verb-- googler. (I doubt that I am the first or only one to do that. Wonder when the Académie Française will add you to their official dictionary?)
I love the doodles that your creative friends come up with. Not that I don't also love your usual logo...
But I love the days when I open you up and find something new. The Van Gogh one is a favorite.
As is Sesame Street.
And the one created for Roald Dahl's birthday. But where's the BFG?
I could go on and on. But how about these for Bastille Day?
