Google Doodle!

Have to say I don't often like Google's doodles. Half the time I don't know the people they're commemorating or the event and the other half I don't like the doodle. I suppose they're trying to cover people and events globally so if I took the time to look into them it would be very educational. Nowadays I'm trying to clutter my brain up with remembering only the essentials. Just wish you could defrag your brain like you can with a computer!

I haven't been posting much recently as I don't have a computer that's any use for blogging. I'm stuck with a tablet at the moment which is more difficult to use. Howeverfound a draft of a post about this doodle when I was checking the Blog. 

I saw this one before Christmas liked it but didn't finish my post about it. It's commemorating the 105th anniversary of Roald Amundsen's successful expedition to reach the South Pole. After that the base served as short respite for the crew of Captain Scott’s expedition to the South Pole – a journey that they would sadly all die on during their return. 

It's a very clever doodle with its igloo shape but for me it looks like a snow globe. Maybe they meant it to!

Why not take a look.

  1. It's almost impossible to post from a tablet I think. Whenever I do it my side bar disappears and all the formatting is wrong. You'd think blogger would be able to sort that out really. I do like my iPad, but I think it's quite limiting,

    I like the doodle too!

    1. Okay,now I am not going to get anything else done today. I am happy that while I have a tablet and a laptop, I still use my desk top computer to blog and so far (knock on wood) all is well.

    2. Sorry! It can be addictive once you start looking.

  3. That would have sent me into panic mode. LOL Lately it seems I have to help Abe more and more, because he's having some problems remembering things and doesn't make note, well he does, but he needs up with a notebook full of crap he's not sure what it's for or where to use it. I have an iMac, so far have been very happy with it and it's not a laptop. Abe just got a new iMac and mine is about 7 years old, his is a lot different then even mine. Sometimes it's a love, hate relationship with computers. He also has a PC, and I almost don't know how to use them any longer. I do like my iPad, rather then turn on my big TV, I have and app that let's me look at all the stations Abe subscribes to, I can hold the iPad in my lap, on this small pillow and use an ear plug. Also play some solitaire games alone, when I want to. My eye is a lot better. Don't want that to happen again. I don't get on my blog everyday like I use to, but I do get on Facebook. There I'm PattyCusterLincoln. Have a wonderful week-end.
