Have You Discovered Google Doodles?
Let's say you use Google as your own personal search engine, and you are online and searching pretty often. But please do admit, have you noticed Google Doodles? My absolute favorite was Mother's Day 2012.
If you haven't noticed, you owe it to yourself to search at least weekly if not daily using Google Search, and check out the amazing creativity that is displayed using the word Google. Or just for the fun of it think of a holiday or international event and do a search for the event, like Veterans Day - this Doodle is from 2007.
I've been so amazed at the imagination of the artists, and also have discovered that there is a Zazzle store where you can actually buy items with the Google Doodles imprinted on them for gifts, home decor, and clothing. Order Google Doodles on Zazzle.
To add this picture to my introduction, I went to the page www.google.com/doodles/veterans-day-2007 - right clicked on the image Saved Image As and gave the image a name. The image is in GIF format, so then I opened it in PhotoShop Elements and added a border to make the image a square, added the lettering for the title, then saved the image as JPG format. This is not my original art the link to it is above under "Image Credit" be sure to click on that link to view the actual image on the Google Doodle web page.

Ada Lovelace Google Doodle
I studied computers starting in the 60's - yes back when punch cards and Fortran reigned. We learned the history of algorithms and Babbage, but I don't remember learning about Ada Lovelace. She worked with Babbage on all these gadgets!! Fine piece of history here.

How Many Doodles Through the Years?
These questions are answered on THIS PAGE.
Doodles are spontaneous changes that are made to the Google logo.
How did the idea for doodles originate?
It began in 1998 when the two founders left a message in the company logo changing the second o with a stick figure to indicate they were "Out of the Office."
Other special days were doodled by various staff members, and in time the demand rose to an international interest - a team of "Doodlers" was formed.
