Google logos can be easily explained

 Barbara Braxton posted this information today and I felt it was worth sharing:
For those of you wondering about the significance of today's Google logo, 
as I was, it is in honour of Norman Rockwell's birthday.  





Rockwell "was a 20th-century American painter and illustrator. His works 
enjoy a broad popular appeal in the United States, where Rockwell is most
famous for the cover illustrations of everyday life scenarios he created for 
The Saturday Evening Post magazine over more than four decades."

Since the controversy over the Google logo for Australia Day 
I have discovered that if you click on the logo 
it takes you to an explanation of its background.
