Hey, it’s the birthday of the man who invented the Zamboni, and today’s Google Doodle features a game in which you can drive the Zamboni. I think. Ironically, I can’t see the Doodle, because it’s also my birthday, and Google shows me a cake with a “happy birthday!” message instead of offering me Zamboni-driving goodness. Ha.

Also going on today: a bonfire celebration in Sardinia to honor St. Anthony.

Sad news! The Snow Sculpting competition in Illinois has been canceled due to lack of snow!

However, the Freeze Yer Gizzard Blizzard Run is still on for this weekend in Minnesota.

And over the pond in Blackpool, the Royal Pigeon Racing Association’s show of the year will happen this weekend, too.

Happy Birthday! I hope you are properly celebrated. (I would write this on your facebook wall if I like facebook, but I know you know that.) : )
