Google Doodle

I so LOVE these

Peter Carl Fabergé, the man whose name is synonymous with decorative eggs, is the subject of today’s Google Doodle.

The Russian jeweller is best known for his Fabergé eggs, which are adorned with gemstones and precious metals.

Today’s Doodle, in which the letters of the word “Google” are hidden within Fabergé eggs, honours what would have been his 166th birthday. Fabergé, also known as Karl Gustavovich Fabergé, was born in Saint Petersburg in 1846 and died on Sept. 24, 1920, after the Bolsheviks nationalized his company following the October Revolution and confiscated the stock. Fabergé fled with his family to Switzerland and died two years later

what did he look like?

Methinks something like this

 

 

Perched on the edge of a leaf, this damselfly takes a moment to gather his thoughts.

The fly becomes beautifully animated in this humorous pose as he scratches his head and the concentration can be seen in its large round eyes.

Captured by Russian photographer, Leonid Lomako, 40, the light blue coloured damselfly is clearly perplexed, and its movements are excellently caught.

 

Cheers!

The Problem with Trolls….

12 Comments

One thing about WP which is really wonderful is that you can disallow comments and just delete them. That is if they are insulting and abusive. You trash them that is where it ought to be – in the trash bin.

Just some excerpts from an article here

Appearances, they say, can be deceptive. Kirsty Chapman (blonde, slim, pretty) is perhaps living proof of this.

To the outside world, she is a respectable housewife and mother of three. Most days she can be seen out and about in fashionable jeans wheeling a pushchair near her home in Wales.

Remember these details — in particular, the fact she has three children. They make what you are about to read all the more shocking.

For Miss Chapman’s photograph has become chillingly familiar on the internet. Often her Facebook photograph has appeared next to a pseudonym. One of these is ‘Percy’, whose activities have become notorious — targeting the bereaved with vile insults on Facebook tribute sites. It would be hard to imagine a more cruel or sadistic ‘hobby’.

Most revealing, perhaps, is the fact she lives with Darren Burton, who says he met her trolling and who is, by his own admission, a serial ‘troll’. His alter ego, or internet persona, is ‘Nimrod Severn’.

Among the memorial websites Burton has targeted are those of singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse and murdered student Anuj Bidve, gunned down in Salford, Greater Manchester, on Boxing Day.

‘Rot in p***’ is the message Burton left for those grieving Anuj’s death.

When Burton was once challenged online about the hurt and upset he was causing bereaved families, he replied: ‘F*** ’um.’

He has also singled out Madeleine McCann. His vile contribution, using his Nimrod alias, was left on a website specifically set up to mock the missing youngster and her parents, called ‘I Found Maddy . . . She Was Under The Bed All Along’
