Its Google’s 13th birthday. I wonder how I ever got along without it. Used Google Search at least 25 times today. Used Google Maps, the Gmail, the Google talk and the blogger all within the last hour. It’s so talented!! To think that communication before Google was only through a rotary phone that entertained us by dialing wrong numbers. Now, we have Google’s Youtube to do the entertaining. We have with Google a window that opens into the world.
“Happy 75th Birthday, Jim Henson. And Thank You
Today is Jim Henson’s 75th birthday. And in my mind, there ought to be parades to honor this man’s legacy. Because, as a filmmaker and innovator, he did it all. Whether you’re a kid or an adult, he touched us all. So celebrations are in order.”
Will post some more tomorrow. Also read Jim Henson’s son’s post — a tribute to his father in the Official Google blog.
“When you’re in the death chamber ordering an execution, and even if in your mind, if you’re a man of conscience, actually believe somebody is guilty, it’s still a very premeditated murder. I mean, it’s scripted and rehearsed. It’s about as premeditated as any killing that you can do. And then when there is doubt, either way it exacts a heavy toll on those who are charged by the state to execute somebody.”
