We stumbled upon this VIBRANT Festival, serendipitously, on Sunday when we went to Boston for Dim Sum at the China Pearl. Our new routine, as of earlier this year, is to leisurely perambulate through the Commons & the Park after the meal to help digest it. In the Commons & at the Park you never know what you will come across. It is always fun and there are always so much going on.

I wish we had known about this festival beforehand. We would have skipped Dim Sum and had some of their food instead. It looked and smelled divine BUT I was beyond full.

It was fun. Great music and dancing. Bravo. Everybody seemed to be having a great time. Beautiful day. I am glad for the organizers. Maybe next year I can time it better.

I serendipitously stumbled across them when I was idly browsing through the NatG TV online schedule.

We have such a backlog of movies and TV shows ‘on tap’ that we haven’t watched anything on NatG for months. So I had not seen anything about these episodes earlier. I DVRed all three. They have yet to record. I will, of course, let you know.

They did it after I e-mailed them requesting same on January 26, 2012.

They have been doing Google Doodles since 1998. This is the first time Sri Lanka has got a Doodle.

So, so much for all the supposed influential Sri Lankans …
and I am not even Sri Lankan anymore!

I am happy for Sri Lanka.

María Elena Walsh (1930 to 2011) was an Argentinian polymath, best known her children’s books and songs.

Leonid Iovich Gaidai (1923 to 1993) was a director of Russian comedies, though that sounds like an oxymoron to me.

This is pretty neat and it is a impressively bold doodle. Bravo.

For today, January 31, 2013, you will be able to see it by going to the Google default search page
or by clicking on a Google icon. It doesn’t appear on all of the small,
Google header icons [e.g., top of Google News].

My latest ‘academic interest’ is Google Doodles. I remember my father lamenting in 1967 that his University (at that time), State University of NY at Buffalo (SUNYAB), was letting a student do a Ph. D. on ‘The Art of Reversing Trucks‘. Well, Google Doodles warrants as much study.

As with so many things that have ruled and defined my life, whether it be SNA, Portals, Popes or Asteroids/Comets, I serendipitously stumbled upon Doodles — just 10 days ago, around 12:40 a.m. in the morning, with the Zamboni doodle. It has transformed this blog. Check the ‘Blog Stats’ on the sidebar >>>>. We started the year at 32,600.

Anyway, I am now studying Doodles. Quickly worked out that there has never been a Doodle about Sri Lanka. So, I e-mailed them hoping to have that rectified.

Also nothing for Mrs. Bandaranaike. Told them about that too.

So, we will wait and see.

Happened to see an ad for this concert, serendipitously, in the Baysider this morning while I was having my pre-breakfast snack, after my run up Prospect Mountain Road. It looks compelling. Not sure whether we will be going. Kind of burned out after all the events we attended in the last few weeks: Clearlake Chorale, Revels, Kingswood, Alton Central School, ‘First Night’ etc.

But, I wanted to make sure that you wouldn’t miss out.
