Google celebrates Charlie Chaplin 122nd birthday. He was born 16th April 1889.

Such a talented man, his works are still very watchable.

Charlie Chaplin was the ultimate wordsmith. I'll never forget the time he said, "...".

I saw it and isn't it great.

I was waiting for it to appear on YouTube so I could post it here grin (I don't know about copyright for those things, I must look into it, 'cause I could have downloaded it, maybe! )

I actually lost track of what this thread is talking about.
Earth Day has been around since 1970, the UN celebrates
it on the Vernal Equinox, yesterday in the USA, which
was also Good Friday, and that is more important to me
than ED. Until the government does something about it
all, it is almost a waste of time. You should see the
idiocy regarding recycling in this part of the world.
'Just dig another landfill"- is their attitude. So it is
all mute.

Todays google doogle celebrates the birth 226 yrs ago of John James Audubon, the naturalist and artist who catalogued the birds of America.

I had not heard of him but I enjoyed reading about his personal life. So amazing! His drawing of birds, realistic.
