I assume they won't be available in the US, but for us Europeans there are some nice images for the Euro football tournament, a lovely one of the Eiffel Tower kicking a football around :D

Not available in the US, although you spooked me when I clicked on the thread to the recent posts and I got your comment about St. Patrick's Day.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Google is coming up with all kinds of random anniversaries now. Almost every day somebody's 114th birthday or the like is featured. I am learning about people I never knew existed.
my facebook posts https://www.facebook.com/emilylaurencotton are public, generally things I find amusing.
my passions: fair trade, ending slavery, and justice.

Yes same here, it can be quite informative. We like the animated ones.

Nice one today for St Andrew's Day, not sure if it's UK only though.

Can't believe it's a year since this thread was last used. Another lovely image for St Andrew's Day, and yesterday's was also very pretty, for Gertrude Jekyll's (famous gardener) hundredth odd birthday.

Must have been UK only, shame as they were both lovely.
