Google Gracious Me!!!

Google have launched their programme Google Trends, which allows users to see where most searches are made for particular words or phrases, and compare them with total searches for the United Kingdom.

The results appear to paint a rather bizarre picture of this nation!!

London tops the list with searches for champagne and caviar (no surprises there, then!!}, while whisky and haggis top the search list in Glasgow.

People living in
Liverpool appear to have a taste for designer labels, with searches for Armani, Adidas and Versace topping the list there.

Norwich seem to have a fixation with bananas, and unsurprisingly, Prince William tops the search list in St. Andrews in Scotland, although he is no longer a student there.

Edinburgh tops the list with searches on the Da Vinci Code (makes me wonder just how many people reading the book realise it is actually FICTION???) and in Gloucester, there appears to be a fascination with pigs... I'll not ponder long on that one!!

My personal interest in Google is more with Google Earth, which is amazing, and worth a look-see. My other interest is my prized Google Mail email account, which has 2,000 megabytes of free storage and the fact that you don't have to click back and forth between an inbox and an outbox to tie all your messages together. There are also no flashing adverts taking up half the screen, but rather discreetly titled ads and links, some of which make for amusing reading, as they tie into what has been written about in the emails. Apparently computers scan your messages, and match the text to ads in their database.

Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

Google earth is great, following it one day , I can even see the plants on my Mum's balcony.
You can also see the guards at Buckingham Palace,
but for some reason the entire space from Washington D.C to Langley , Virginia, is missing ! I wonder why ?
