Google marks the Fourth of July, with a special doodle made up using "red, white and blue" colors of Americas' national falg with the words made up of using one of the United States' most famous folk songs by Woody Guthrie - "This Land Was Made for Your And Me."

The song was written by Woody Guthrie in 1940 and in 2002, it was one of 50 recordings chosen that year by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry.

To further embellish, the 'L' in the Google logo is represented by an guitar.

Beneath the doodle, a line of text reads, "Celebrate freedom. Support and free and open Internet," clicking on which takes you to Google's Take Action page, that urges users to celebrate freedom by supporting a free and open Internet.

Another, Google doodle on the Google Canada home page marks the 111th anniversary of the Hartland Covered Bridge, New Brunswick. The 391 metre long bridge across the Saint John River is the world's longest covered bridge.

Finally, enjoy holiday by going to google.com and google "Do a barrel roll." It's a fun play on the classic Star Fox saying, powered with Google Now.

Android users can perform a barrel roll by simply speaking to their phone. Try getting Siri to do that.

The barrel roll trick uses the feature's voice prompt, however Google Now is mostly centered around rather clever serendipitous updates.
