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.

‘Bright’ Talks Warns Of ‘Darkest’ … A Rare Headline.

by Anura Guruge

Click to access CBS coverage. Google for more.

Yes, it was ‘whistleblower’ Dr. Rick BRIGHT warning of the ‘DARKEST winter’.

Yes, a stark & scary warning.

To I, with my fondness for names, it was amusing — BRIGHT & DARKEST.

Well, you have to SMILE.

Yes, another instance of a person with a BRILLIANT name.


Wow. How perfect.

Appears name actually comes from ‘Bright’ –> maybe ‘Bright Helmet’.

So, more to do with physical appearance than mental acuity, BUT, still neat.

Well, I have to live with ‘Guruge‘ — though I am not really complaining, even if 99.9% don’t have a clue as to what it means. SMILE.

This is pretty cool. Talk about making the BEST of an unsatisfactory situation.

It is there local ski resort. So, most of the kids & parents will be familiar with it.

Kudos to the school administration for coming up with the idea.

I am sure that some kids might request in future years!

Yes, they will not be able to be together BUT there will be lots of camaraderie — shouting & hats being tossed — as the chairs go up & down, & by each other.

I like it. I wouldn’t mind witnessing it.


I am happy for these kids.
