When I tried a few days ago it seemed to be broken - too many people trying to get in I expect.

Just in case you missed it (and because you can see ones we didn't get because they're from another part of the world) you can see all the logo's here, in date order. [www.google.com] Makes some interesting browsing.

The icecream sundae gets a look in today

Thanks, Irene. I haven't had an icecream sundae for years. Oh the memories of sharing sundaes with friends.

2 memories come alive here. Firstly, when I was a child it was a real treat when my dad took me to Verreccio's in Bristol, the Italian ice cream shop, to have a knickerbocker glory. It was almost bigger than me, I swear it! Secondly, I remember taking my kids to the Wimpey Bar(long gone) in Hamilton and I asked my then 4 year old if he would like an ice cream sundae. 'No', her replied vehemently,'I want one TODAY!'

Thanks for that Dawn..I save the Google ones to a folder, I hope I don't get into trouble with that!!

Marnie, I have often wondered if they duplicate things. After all, each year the same birthday/milestone is noted. So if you have kept a folder of each, I would love to know if they duplicate the same header or not. If you don't mind?
Re: Google
April 16, 2011 09:20PM
Hello, Irene. I have not seen a header repeated. Those days that are an annual event, e.g. Anzac Day, do come up again, but the header is different each time.

Oooh, tut-tut Marine - new copyright laws recently? I haven't even studied them, but I'm sure you'll be OK. I'll protect you ha!

Interesting point Irene, but thinking about it I guess Google keep a check on what their 'artists' (for the want of a better description) are putting up every year for each birthday to make doubly sure they don't make a repetition. They really do well don't they.

Dawn.

Here is an interesting article printed online that was in the Waikato Times yesterday [www.stuff.co.nz]

There was actually more in the printed detail. One paragraph stated that to a lot of this age demographic, to them religion is a Muslim wearing a Burkah. That is the extent of the knowledge of their religious views.

I guess Google are fence sitting on this one with regards an Easter banner.
Re: Google

Great isn't it when they don't know the difference between religion & Christian?
Re: Google
April 25, 2011 04:27PM
What I want to know, is where is the Google Easter Bunny game that we used to play? You know, the one where Easter eggs with letters on them would float down and you had to catch the ones in the right order that spelt Google. It's disappeared. I've found plenty of references to it but no clickable game. Even the Google logo website has no reference to it. It's all been obliterated!

Gone into cyberspace like so many things these days.
Good reading on the 2 links posted here, I had my say probably to deaf ears.
Re: Google

Irene, Sadly, I think what you posted could apply to many other things in life as well as Easter or any other points of religion. I had a smile when I read about "Lady Gaga", I suppose you could say "whatever it takes". That is probably why I am an advocate of the use of mnemonics for my students.
There are many who have curious minds and want to learn and know more; they are richer for it. There are also many who don't fall into that category.
I think I'd better stop right there. smiling smiley

Just discovered the 150th Anniversary of the First World's Fair - it's fab - run the magnifying glass over the picture - see how many moving objects you can find! Love it!

Me too. Could be one of my favs. Love the fountain.
Re: Google

It's a fun one. How many things did you spot through the magnifying glass that weren't there, or were very different without the magnification? I saw two red things in the tree; the lady in the red box wearing a green dress spins around; the fountain is playing; the clock changes to one which shows its insides; the train whistle pumps out music notes and 'breath'. Did I miss anything? I kept returning to the carriage and horses expecting them to 'do' something but nothing happens there.
