Have You Ever Used The Google Toggles Before You Enter The Search Engine?

I think I am addicted to Google. I Google-search everything. If my front page is another search engine I get out of there and go right back to Google. Besides searching for what I want at a particular time, there is always something educational on Google's front page to keep me intrigued for hours. Right below the actual search bar for Google is a toggle of sorts. You can click on it and it will take you to random places. One of the toggles asks "Do you feel lucky?"

Recent reports say that Donald Trump wants to do away with after-school programs for 2 million children. I am almost positive that this is not a good idea.

Rugs Really Tie The Room Together
