Google celebrates Mr. Charles Dickens 200th Birthday!


A bit late on the draw with this entry, but I did wish to mention that today (or at least what is left of it), it the 200th birthday of the Victorian era greatest author!  I realize that some would say blasphemy, and could easily make a valid argument for Mr. Verne (of course), but in the larger scheme of things, the classic works produced by Mr. Dickens are also timeless!  For further information regarding the celebrations regarding the bicentenial, please turn to:
