When you do a Google Search on the Google Doodle Archive
only one Doodle shows up.
The one that I requested, last year, for Independence Day.

Yes, of course Google does do Doodles for New Years.

We all know the ones they have done for Chinese New Year.

For Persian New Year …

It is time they did another for Sri Lanka. One for the April 14 (every year, like clockwork) New Year would be neat.

Yes, I could request it and get it done.

But, I would rather the folks from Sri Lanka do it themselves. If they don’t succeed, I will step in and bail them out.

The way I see it is that I already got them the one and only and nobody had the decency to thank me.

This ‘card’ cracks me up. What is this. Tourists wishing us Happy New Year?


I like this one. It is representative. Happy New Year.

Alton’s Own ‘Baysider’ Pioneers News In ‘3D’, Actually ‘3G 3D’, On Page 2 Of The March 20, 2014 Issue. Bravo!

While I have been critical of ‘The Baysiders’ often shameless reporting in the past, and for its Editor bragging in print about speeding at 90 mph (which is criminal speeding), it would be churlish not to give them credit for their groundbreaking efforts to bring to us news in 3D (albeit only if you happen to have the latest version of Google Glasses).

Wow. Reading News in 3D is brilliant. Wow. It is there hovering in space. You want to reach out and touch it. I am hooked, just as I am with 3D movies. I can’t wait for the whole paper to be in 3D. Yes, you need Google Glasses but I assume everybody in Alton, who can read, already has these.

What is even better is that this is 3G, i.e., 3rd generation, 3D printing. The two images, as was the case pre-Google Glasses, don’t have to be of the same size and side-by-side. To conserve print space one image can be smaller and offset — as was graphically demonstrated with this trial. The Glasses compensate for it. Actually I think they can take this further. Given that the glasses can magnify they don’t have to print the stories as big.

This is great. Made my day. I need to go and read it again in 3D.

Yes, you need the latest Google Glasses to see it in 3D.

Otherwise you just see two stories … kind of side-by-side, and slightly offset.

The latest '3G 3D' capable Google Glasses required for reading offset, disparate size 3D news printing. Click to ENLARGE.

The White House Evaluating Korean Samsung & LG Phones Rather Than American iPhones. This Is INDEED Worse Than Benghazi!

I fell out of bed this morning, and spilled my coffee all over me, when I heard this on CNBC!

This is criminal.

Bloody Korean phones when Apple created this genre.

Another corrupt, criminal, fraudulent act by this ‘Munda Logic‘ White House.

I demand, as I did with Obamacare, a Congressional Hearing on this.

There has to be an agency that can stop this.

Having been duped by KIA I am definitely against buying Korean.

This is crazy — why buy Korean when there is a BETTER U.S. product?

Malaysian Airlines MH370 — Are ‘They’ Gearing Up For An Entebbe Type Hostage Rescue Mission To Get The Passengers?

How many of YOU remember (or for that matter have heard of) the Entebbe Raid — July 4, 1976.

Hijacked plane on the ground. Hostages needed to be rescued.

Check out the Wikipedia entry if you are not familiar or can’t remember this famous incident. Yes, there was even a movie about it.

Though I shoveled wet, heavy snow for an hour this morning, and as such did my quota of exercise, I ended up going for a brisk 30 minute walk around Wolfeboro, NH, at 7 pm because it was such a lovely ‘Spring’ evening. My brain was working cranking away as usual.

Then it hit him. Are ‘they‘ (and I won’t mention names) buying time to mount an Entebbe?

To me the search off Australia does not make sense. Then it struck me. It is the perfect Red Herring to buy time. This would explain all the hitherto inexplicable obfuscations.

So, just remember. IF there is a rescue attempt mounted to free hostages, you FIRST read about it here (as was also the case with the Maldives).
