Regardless, hope you have some fun. And best wishes for 2023!

PS. To find the cute tree above, I searched on Google. When I put in “Christmas”….the first autofill was “in Ukraine”.

I had to call Lambert. I made him guess what the autofill was. He couldn’t come up with anything. I told him the answer in a disapproving voice. He was appalled yet amused at how unorganic this result was and what had been done to make this come about.

He suggested I screenshot the result. I said I didn’t intend to post on it.

So I went back to do the search again since I had stopped before I had located any images.

This time, the first autofill was “eastern orthodox Christmas 2022.” And other suggestions very different from the first list.

Not liking how attentively Google seems able to listen.
