SEE ME ON THE GOOGLE LOGO!

Hey people - see today's Google logo (maybe UK only?).
Previous recent Google logos have been hinting towards 'something', much discussed on some newsgroups.
Turns out it's been leading up to H.G. Wells' birthday anniversary today, author of War of the Worlds.
Despite US radio & film versions, the book's original action took place right here in my own village, since Wells lived nearby.
The Martians landed in sandpits on Horsell Common - (almost!) viewable from my front window right now.
So today's (presumably final) 'Wells' logo could be supposedly including my home - go take a look for an aerial version.
Gawd, I'm famous!

I was only in the paper once when I was a baby. I had one copy of it, it's really old. Well, I left my only copy out and my daughter picked it up and tore it in two. Waaahhh. It was a big deal to me.

I can see it here Surrey!

Just the sort of remark one would expect from Kent - and you ain't been on the Google logo yet, Cleverclog(g)s!

I'm in the paper often here, but I couldn't find the live image Alan was talking about earlier today.

HG Wells is dead. Will you not let the man rest in peace. What is wrong with you?

Oh oh ........ looks like the Martians have now wiped me out!
For the Wells fan above, I'm right at the centre of all the War of the Worlds action - more than happy to provide any further info.
