Doodling Our Way To Google Commemoration Day

Do you know why September 7th is special? It’s Google Commemoration day! The tool we’ve come to use on a daily basis for everything from a simple search to asking how to keep track of your keys is celebrating another year, and we’re happy to help commemorate this special day!

To do so, we’ve chosen our Top 10 Commemorative Google Doodles of all time!

1. PAC-MAN’s 30th anniversary: What’s better than going to do a quick search and finding that you can actually play PAC-MAN on Google? Arguably one of the most fun Google Doodles, PAC-MAN was a hit!

2. Pi Day: A math teacher’s (or maybe a pie eater’s) favorite day! This Doodle was one to post in classrooms all around the world.


3. Robert Bunsen’s 200th Birthday: An animated Doodle, you can watch this Bunsen-themed Google Doodle send different colors throughout the doodle’s various test tubes!

4. Lucille Ball’s 100th Birthday: Another animated Doodle, this one was for all the I Love Lucy fans. Click on the Lucille Ball Doodle, and you can watch what’s likely the most well-known I Love Lucy clip ever!

5. Les Paul’s 96th Birthday: Arguably one of the best, you could actually PLAY this guitar Doodle and record your own song!

6. John Lennon’s 70th Birthday: This Google Doodle looked ordinary when you went to the website, but all that changed when you hit the PLAY button. Google made a short animated video of John Lennon’s “Imagine.” After watching the video, you were automatically directed to the search results for John Lennon on Google!.

7. Dr. Suess Birthday: One of the most loved storytellers of all time, this Doodle had characters that many people, old and young alike, would recognize from their favorite stories.

8. Louis Braille’s Birthday: To commemorate the founder of the Braille system of writing, Google did this Doodle in early 2006.

9. Leonardo Da Vinci’s Birthday: In memory of one of the most well-known and celebrated artists of modern history, Google created this Doodle featuring some of Da Vinci’s most prolific work.

10. Michael Jackson Doodle: In honor of MJ, Google released this Doodle shortly after his passing.

Those are our favorites, but we want to hear your favorite. Help us commemorate this special day by letting us know which is your favorite Google Doodle!

Top 5 Most Commonly Lost items

Who hasn’t lost something in their life? All of us, at some time or another, have had that feeling of panic when we realize we’ve misplaced something. We retrace our steps, look in every nook and cranny (including the couch cushions) and sometimes decide it must have sprouted legs and walked away.

Often times, we find the lost item right where it was supposed to be. Other times, however, it ends up in the land of lost. Nearly all businesses have a box, bin or tub of some fashion, dedicated as the “Lost and Found.”

Lost and found bins typically contain quite an eclectic mix of items. They always seem to hold a few items that make you scratch your head and say, “How did someone lose that?!”

While we can’t answer that question for you, we can let you know which items to keep an extra eye on. That is, after doing some research online (and in lost and found bins around town) we’ve discovered the five most common items in a lost and found bin:

  1. Keys
  2. USB Flash Drives
  3. Mobile Phones
  4. Sunglasses
  5. Gloves

So what can we learn from this? Well first, it’s that we need to keep better tabs on these five items. And second, we know that we’re not alone. Apparently everyone has problems keeping track of their keys, cell phone, sunglasses, etc.

Have you ever lost any of these items? Or have you lost something more valuable? Tell us your stories in the comment section below!
