Google, As In 2016 & 2015, Does A Footnote For 2017 ‘Memorial Day’ Rather Than A Google Doodle.

Google has NEVER done a Google Doodle for Memorial Day!

I guess it has to do with some kind of policy that they eschew anything associated with war and conflict.

I can understand and appreciate that to an extent.

But, I think Memorial Day transcends war though by definition it is holiday honoring U.S. war dead in all conflicts.

Wow. They are BOTH dead. One dying much younger than the other.



He was magical.

Given that I have spent a LOT of time in India I have had my share of sitar and tabla music.

I am not a huge fan but I can listen to decent/good sitar/tabla music for an extended period of time.

Ravi Shankar is good. I enjoyed listening to him. I hear his daughter is very good. She plays in New Hampshire quite often BUT I have yet to catch her.
