A word of advice:

I saw the figure to the left of the search box and thought, "That doesn't say 'Google!'" Give it a second or two. It's animated and may not start immediately.

Happy Birthday, Martha! (I think she'd like her Google Doodle :thumbsup: )

Thanks, sandik. Why doesn't MY Google page ever do nice things like that?

I was curious about the identification of the images, so did some Googling and found the following. Several of these images have been used by the Google animator.
