There is a monthly magazine concerning birds and all
wildlife, with his name, Audubon. Very fine.

Very old rumor that J J Audubon was the long lost
Dauphin of France. Persisted for years. Still hangs
around in certain places.

I had some fun this morning playing that halfbaked child toy guitar. It's fun to struggle for a tune.

Does anybody here have perfect pitch, by any chance? eta? I'm wondering if the bottom string on the left is an A.

I accidently got stuck with iGoogle which has no logo and I can't get rid of it and go back to google.com.

I use iGoogle by choice, but you can easily get to the logo by clicking on the sprocket(?) in the upper right corner, which is labelled Options - one of which is Classic Home.

I don't have perfect pitch, but it's a B.

Wow that was fun...it not only records my composition, but I can play it back. How clever is that whistle


Google says that the doodle was made using a mixture of JavaScript, HTML5 Canvas, CSS, Flash and other tools like Google Font API, goo.gl and App Engine.

Its impressive, so much work and such a shame its will last only one day!
