today is a google holiday, hooray!

Google Holiday: Norman Rockwell’s Birthday. Our buddy Norman would have been 116 today, assuming I’m capable of doing math this early. You, of course, know Rockwell from such famous works as these:

Rockwell is about as iconic as you can get here in America, and I found it sort of sad to read (on Wikipedia, duh) that a psychiatrist once told him that he painted his happiness, but did not live it. Let’s hope that changed by the end of his life.

If you happen to be in Stockbridge, Massachusetts later today, stop by the Norman Rockwell Museum to celebrate.

    Why were you googling Krispy Kreme…? Can I assume that means you picked up some donuts for lunch?!

    Why would I NOT be Googling Krispy Kreme?
