Fabrege Egg Google Doodle

An Ode to Google Doodles

They're King of the World

Alexa says so

Much to Mark Z-berg's chagrin.

I've figured it out, I know what it takes

For Google to squeak out this win.

  First Day of Spring Google Doodle 2012

Hot in pursuit, top ten on the list:

Facebook and You Tube and Wiki

Amazon, Yahoo, Twitter, three more–

Oh, the internet's web is so sticky!

Grandparents Day Google Doodle

'S'not just about brains

the others have those

#1 demands that you're clever.

Creative and artsy, yes these are a must

if you stand a chance whatsoever.

  Teacher's Day google doodle

So, why is it Google sits on the throne

the King of internet traffic?

I'm convinced it's their doodles, they make searching FUN–

Brilliance captured in graphic!

Sometimes interactive, often historical, occasionally cryptic but always witty or whimsical, Google Doodles make me smile.  I'm always a little disappointed when it's the plain ol' Google search box, but I suppose it makes me appreciate doodle brilliance all the more.

It's the little things…right?

But it begs the question:  is it “defriend” or “unfriend“???

Laundry & lines & suds & such

I love my hometown; though it was never as small, it’s Mayberry to me.

A few weeks ago I went back to celebrate my niece’s first birthday.  Since my parents aren’t living, it’s not a trip I make often enough.

Walking though Five Points, I relish the places that remain untouched by time.  A critical eyebrow raises at anything new and shiny.

The laundromat’s open door was a magnet, and immediately I was drawn to these lines.  Aren’t they gorgeous??

Black and white laundromat

 

I wasn’t seeing this in color…I was seeing it in black and white.

My sister is used to my photography insanity by now; she didn’t blink an eye when I was compelled to shoot washers and dryers.  Maybe because as a mother who’s washed a squillion loads, she wants to SHOOT washers and dryers!

Laundromat

Memory fails me; I can’t remember if this place was here when I was a little girl traipsing up and down Lumpkin Street.

But that doesn’t matter.  It felt like home.

Art continues to imitate life as Twitter remains a target. 

My favorite recent comic–

Non Sequitur on Twitter

And a few snippits from Pultizer Prize winning columnist Leonard Pitts on why he won't Twitter his life away

"When I first heard of this latest advance (?) in interpersonal
communication, I pegged it as a fad that would be big among high school
and college students — i.e., young people, who frequently have the
attention span of a squirrel on cocaine. Last week's presidential
speech to a joint session of Congress shows how wrong I was."

"In the '90s, you often heard people complain of how memoir writers
and afternoon talk shows had turned our public spaces into a communal
confessional, intimate secrets once necessary for whispering now
shouted into the ether like an order at a fast-food joint. Ten years
later, we are not just sharing secrets; we are sharing lives. And not
the good parts, either, but the banal, the mundane, the everyday.

I'm
darned if I can see the fascination. I mean, I'm not surprised that
technology allows this. But I am surprised that people — by the
thousands — buy in to it."

"Indeed, you have to wonder if, as communication becomes ever easier, we
have not gone in the opposite direction, crossing the point of
diminishing returns as we did. More people have more ways to reach more
people than at any point in history. But it turns out — read a message
board or an unsolicited email, if you don't believe me — many of us
don't have a whole lot to say. Unless, that is, you find some socially
redeeming value in banality, cruelty and crudity, which have become
ubiquitous."

Thoughts?  Agree, disagree?

Doonesbury comic about twitter

Hmmm…if I'm not mistaken, I think Doonesbury doth mocketh twitter.  Infidel!

Are you on twitter?  If so, how 'bout leave your best pitch or explanation for it in comments.  Not on twitter?  In comments, tell me why or ask questions.  I'd love for both sides to weigh in! 

Don't even know what twitter is?  Well, now… bless…your…heart…😉

The past t40orlessatpensieveltgreenouches the future in a grandfather’s loving touch.  In an ideal world, the influence of grandparents shapes and gives flight to a child’s dreams and imaginations in ways never intended for parents themselves.  I suppose I romanticize the notion of grandparents–though I only knew my father’s mother, we were close before her death, and when I dream of "home", the house is hers. 

This sculpture, aptly named "Grandfather", is found outside Rembrandt’s in the Bluff View Arts District of Chattanooga.  It is one of my all-time favorite pieces of art.
