All you had to do to know it was Earth Day was log onto Google on Tuesday.
There it was on Google’s “classic” home Web page—an idyllic mountain-and-waterfall scene in vivid blue and green. All it lacked was the sound effects of a gurgling brook and chirping birds.
Normally, my daily iGoogle page features a cute cartoon frog and ladybug as they go through their day, drinking coffee in the morning (probably in recyclable Google cups).
Then they play outdoor games such as croquet, also in an idyllic, blue-and-green spring setting.
