Check Out Google’s ‘Code A Heart’ 2016 Valentine’s Day Promotion (For Girls?)

It is a ‘footnote’ below the search trench in Google’s standard search page. Click on that.


I dashed this off, in less than a minute to show you. But I have used this coding system before.


Yet another of Google’s efforts to get kids to try their hand at some basic, ‘graphical’ coding — and, as always, I applaud them. Thank YOU, Google.

That they are targeting this specifically at girls … is … Hhhmmm. Yes, I fully understand. The goal is to get more girls interested in coding. Yes, I get that, yes, I know that. But boys would like too — I think. But, I could be wrong on that.

Honestly, YOU Did NOT Think That The West Indies Women Would Get A 1st Innings Lead v. Sri Lanka … Right?

I KNEW that this bunch of pussies, masquerading as the West Indies, would NOT get 200.

They are so pathetic it is hard to comprehend.

Marilyn Samuels is taking way too much ‘ganja’. He should be deported.

I gather Gary Sobers is in Colombo to see these girls try and play cricket. I feel bad for Gary. He was a man. And these these are a bunch of girls presents him with a problem. He can’t go into the dressing room and kick each of them on their bum. You can’t kick women.

I am so disgusted with this bunch. Yes, some of them batted like I used to — BUT that was why I NEVER played Test cricket. I am so disgusted. Don’t know why I watch.

When they bowled out Sri Lanka for 200 I was thinking that it was such a shame that it wasn’t 202 or even 201 BECAUSE I had visions that Sri Lanka might have still been able to get these (and I am trying very hard not to use a derogatory term to refer to the genitalia of this bunch) to FOLLOW ON!

Other than acknowledging that I am ‘touched’ I am not going to say much about this.

When I saw this I realized to my horror that I have no idea where Don & Sandy stood on religion let alone know what their religious persuasion was. All I can say with some certainty is that I am pretty sure they did not go to church, too often, on Sunday mornings. They could have been Catholics for all I know.

If this in any way helps the parents cope with the unimaginable loss, I am glad.

In any and all situations like this, I, knowing that the pope maintains a title that says he is Vicar of Christ, just wish the pope would have interceded BEFORE the tragedy. Blessing kids after they have died, to me, seems disingenuous and pointless. The kids, by definition, should be in a good place. So the pope’s blessing isn’t going to do much at this stage. C’est la vie.

I am convinced that there IS a connection and simple explanation.

I heard it on TV news this morning, but, as ever, there is better coverage in my #1 newspaper, the U.K. 'Daily Mail'.
