HAPPY 4th of JULY – STARS AND STRIPES FOREVER from GOOGLE

July 4, 2014

Greetings to everyone on this 4th of July.  It’s a date we share world wide although the significance for Americans is unique.

If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you’ll know that I love the doodles that Google offers us on special occasions.  And sometimes, just on “occasions in their own imaginations”!

Take a moment out today.  Users who land on the homepage in the United States will be able to enjoy an animated 4 July parade, featuring a marching band keeping step to the beat of John Philip Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever”.

A young boy is the underdog, who is seen struggling to keep up with the rest of the band, but the jubilant spirit of the holiday shines through when the horn player takes him under his wing.
