‘Revels’ (Cambridge, MA), To Their Credit, Does A Nice Little Piece On “Juneteenth 2020”.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE & read. Sent as an e-mail. It is probably on their Website to. Too busy to look. Sorry. SMILE.


Just as with Google & their Doodle, I am happy & proud to see this from (my) ‘Revels’.

They are a CLASS ACT & I would not have expected anything less from them.

This is so good. I am so happy.

Yes. Yes. Yes. Rejoice.

So GLAD & So PROUD That Google Did A Doodle “Juneteenth 2020”.

by Anura Guruge



Click on the image to get the whole story from Google (no less). Worth reading.


I was wondering & CONCERNED whether Google would do a Doodle to mark THIS IMPORTANT “Juneteenth“.

They had never done one previously & never even done one for “Emancipation Day”. Basically had to do with their guideline about NO Doodles marking political events.

Well, “Juneteenth” is above POLITICS, especially now.

I am so glad, so relieved, so proud.

I am a Google shareholder. SMILE. So, I expect good things from this company & I am a HUGE Google fan & supporter. I am ALL Google — Chrome, Android etc.

So, I am GLAD.

Thank YOU, Google. SMILE.

Marked Slowdown In U.S. Google Doodles Since The Pandemic — & Makes No Sense.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. From the Google Doodle Archive.


I like ‘Google Doodles‘. There was a time when I did posts about them. I no longer have the time.

But, I still watch out for them everyday. Even check the archives, now & then, for interesting International ones.

I noticed that there has been a MARKED drop-off in new Doodles over the last 2-months.

Makes no sense. Google’s designers most likely all work from home — virus or no virus. So, the ‘stay-at-home’ should not have had any impact.

But, something is up.

Just wanted to make sure that you were aware.

Now you know.

Google Doodle For April 28, 2020, Was About ‘Cricket’ & Repurposed From June 1, 2017 — ICC Champions Trophy.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


I knew it was cricket-related as soon as I saw it. The wickets were a dead giveaway. The rolling-pin as a bat was a bit off-putting.

Then there was the sock — or more to the point a sock with very distinctive coloring. You have to be a devoted fan, such as I, to spot that. Those are the West Indies colors.

Anyway, here is my post for the June 1, 2017 Google Doodle. Enjoy.

Having Genuine Google Doodle, For Dame Jean Macnamara, On ‘April 1’, Was Stupid!

by Anura Guruge



Yes, I know it was her birthday — after I looked her up. She is by no means a household name — and I suspect that that is even the case in her how country of Australia.

So, what was Google THINKING?

Yes, Google as we all know has a long and storied history of doing clever April 1st jokes.

Yes, we all know about the ongoing pandemic. Yes, I worked out that Google MIGHT refrain from joking around this year — given the gravity of the situation.

So, it would have been BEST not to do ANYTHING.

Do the Google Doodle for her the next day. That would have been better.

This was STUPID — Google.

Say it after I. “This was STUPID Google”.

Looks Like NO Google Doodle For Sri Lanka 2019 ‘Aluth Avurudu’ (Sinhala New Year) — YET, YET AGAIN!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. Google’s ‘Doodle Archive’.



It is nearly 9am on Sunday, April 14, 2019 in Sri Lanka and still NO Google Doodle for Sinhala New YearAluth Avurudu.

They have already posted the Google Doodles for Bangladesh, Thailand & Vietnam — for 2019 — as you can see above.

It could still happen, BUT it is NOT looking good.

I feel bad for the Sinhalese. Google really is giving them the finger! Shame.

Well, I did my bit 5-years ago and got Sri Lanka its VERY FIRST Google Doodle. And I am not even a Sri Lankan anymore — legally.

There are Sri Lankans that work for Google They obviously don’t care.

Sorry.

Happy New Year, irrespective.

Google Doodle For Sri Lanka February 4, 2019 Independence Day — Recycled From Last Year.

by Anura Guruge


Permanent access, independent of date,
provided via the Google Doodle Archive.


Last Year’s


As with last year Google INCORRECTLY refers to it as
“Sri Lanka National Day”.

Nope. It is INDEPENDENCE DAY.

 


Though it is RECYCLED from last year, this will, nonetheless, make a LOT of people, like 14 million, very happy.

Having snubbed them in 2016 & 2014, Google has again honored Sri Lankan Independence Day, 2019 — 71th anniversary.

I, as the World knows, got the very 1st Google Doodle for Sri Lanka, for Independence Day, in 2013. So, I have connection …

For reasons that I cannot fathom, Google, as they also did (incorrectly) in 2015, again calls it “National Day“. NOT SO! Google should Google that. It is INDEPENDENCE DAY — 70-years.

My 2013 Google Doodle & the one in 2015.
