Google Disappoints Sri Lanka Once More — No Google Doodle For 2017 Avurudu (Sinhala New Year).

I have been keeping an eye for the last few hours. Checked a few minutes ago at 9:10pm U.S. Eastern time. It was 6:40am on Friday, April 14, 2017.

So, well into the morning in Sri Lanka so to speak. Avurudu is well underway.

They have been hoping for an Avurudu Google Doodle for years after I managed to get the very first Doodle for Independence Day in 2013.

But they have yet to do one for New Year or Vesak.

Ironically, to add salt to the wound, they do New Year Doodles for Thailand and Bangladesh who also celebrate more or less on the same day.

Well, there is always next year.

Happy New Year, irrespective.

Greenleaf Beacon Hill Dollhouse: Laborious Progress Continues At A Crawl.

Click pictures to ENLARGE.


The main structure — or shell — is done as you can see in pictures #1.

Next step is to assemble the main staircase COMPLEX and it is indeed complex. Got the first few steps of that step completed. Not easy.

Teischan admits that she could not do this on her own.

I have burned all my fingers, more than once, with the hot glue gun. Always forget how hot that glue is coming out of the gun. The tips of my fingers are a mess!

More on Thursday. Will keep you posted. {SMILE}
