I did a post on Edmond Halley (29 October 1656 to 14 January 1741 (new Gregorian calendar)), on the anniversary of his death, on January 14, 2017.

So, I am not going to repeat myself. {Smile}. Instead I am giving you the above two YouTube videos, which are good, and the Wikipedia entry.


But, please check my earlier post. You will be glad that you did.

As one that LOVES Pad Thai (though my low carb diet precludes me from having it (much)) and a person that spent 3 Summers in the 1970s in Thailand, I am all in favor of this mouthwatering animated Google Doodle.

What struck me, however, is that it is NOT tied to an anniversary! It is not date-specific. As far as I can tell that is a FIRST.

This could be the start of an INTERESTING trend. Google doing interesting Doodles independent of any date significance.

So, mark this date … remember this post. {Smile}
