Yes, Google very definitely is an International entity, BUT I don’t think it has any particular or special affiliation or connection with London or even the U.K. So, why ‘Whitechapel’?

Yes, it might have been for the band. Possible.

Why am I intrigued. For us Brits ‘Whitechapel’ has certain definite connotations, chief among them ‘Jack the Ripper‘! Was that it? Nothing wrong. New processor is likely to be a RIPPER. If so rather cute & clever. There is also the Bangladeshi connection & it is possible that the Google team may have some of those as key team members.

I would love to know. I would love to be able to Google it. SMILE.

I think that I MUST have seen this phenomenon before, BUT I can’t honestly remember. There was lots of it in this one area. I took these pictures. I then had to use Google LENS to look it up. Neat.

Yes, the explanation makes sense. He have been in the 50Fs the last few days, BUT this morning the temperature was below freezing. So, BINGO. Neat. Really pretty. I had to break some to make sure it was indeed ice. It was on a trail that is rarely used by anyone but I. So, I was NOT harming anybody else’s enjoyment.

Enjoy. ICE NEEDLES.
