Happy Birthday Paddington

by

And whilst on the theme of anniversaries (see Friday), it is of course Paddington’s 50th birthday.  He’s wearing well…

He has his own wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paddington_Bear

The Times wrote about him back in May:

Google is celebrating with a special ‘holiday logo’ as they do occasionally:

(Perhaps unsurprisingly google.com isn’t joining in: http://www.google.com/ )

You can see more of their designs here: http://www.google.com/holidaylogos.html

    Although he sold out to Marmite, I’m still happy to see him about. Although, I find it odd that Paddington Bear, who was created by an Englishman and had his stories set in England, appears on Google.com and not Google.co.uk as well!

    I also think that we should encourage Google to have a doodle for World Diabetes Day on November 14th!
