That Advert!

Today, every time I accessed Grows on You an advert appeared on my screen. “Grandma beats Wrinkles”. The first time it happened, I barely took notice but when it appeared on two other occasions I had the feeling the advert was directed at me!

I haven’t clicked on it as it could lead to spam. Well that’s my excuse, and it’s my birthday, so I’ll cry if I want to!

IF you go to google and click on adblock plus this will stop the adverts appearing. I find this works for me very well and stops the adverts.

Oh Happy Birthday Eirlys, hope you are having a good one xx..

I get how to remove dark spots.

Yes that one as well Linda, I tried blocking them a few years back and ended up having mega problems with goy and blocked part of that as well, so just put up with them, might try again though as its a different setup now..I'm not very good with all the settings and suchlike and always think I will mess something up..

Happy birthday Eirlys! Adblock Plus works for me - had it for years and no ads at all. It was the flashing ones I really couldn't stand.

Wrinkles. Dark spots? Do these advertisers think we are OLD? :O)

Thank you for the good wishes. It really was my birthday yesterday and I enjoyed it.

Will have another look at Adblock.

Happy birthday for yesterday :o))

I get them, tried taking them off but they come back on again after about a week, they obviously do not know that I am beyond help, too many wrinkles to get rid of now. lol, and the patches are staying cos they are part of me. lol. oh and the weight is not moving either cos I enjoy my food toooooooo much. lol. and why do they think I need Red Diesel, my tractor is no longer working. lol. Happy belated birthday :O)

Thank you again. Actually I am tuned-in to my "new" age. Being born in a year with an 0 at the end, come January 1st I start thinking I am that age. Family get cross with me and opinion sites on line must wonder about me.

Seaburn Girl : You are YOUNG!

Oliveoil: Your post made me laugh. Great sense of humour you have.

(Have you tried the 5:2 diet? Brilliant! It really , really works!!)

I was born in a year with a 0 at the end too and so was a friend who is 10 years older than me. Every five years when our joint ages add up to a year with a nought on the end we have a joint party - next one on Sept 2nd will be our seventh one - quite a scary thought!

Good for you, Steragram. Have a great time.

This mornings ad is a hyperdermic needle heading for someones face eek😨

21 Aug, 2015

 

Nothing on my page this morning, Pamg. No AdBlock as yet either. Hmm!

21 Aug, 2015

 

LOL, I have Fifty Shades of Grey, The Silkworm and a black blank space, being a curious soul I clicked and its an ad for a free Audio Tape, I have bought a few new books from Kindle in the past few weeks so I guess they want me to buy more, must admit I guess they're better than the wrinkly ads ...

21 Aug, 2015

 

I always download the free Kindle books. Some are quite enjoyable. It means I always have something to read.

Haven't read "Fifty Shades of Grey" but was tempted to download "Fifty Sheds of Grey" Yes, it actually exists.
Horticulture-themed, naturally!

well its my birthday today and I have the beat the brown spots ad!

don't bother with 50 shades of grey, I read the first 8 pages and the quality of the writing is appalling. didn't even get to the 'erotic bits'. too boring !

Happy birthday SBG!

15 Sep, 2015

 

Belated birthday wishes, Seaburngirl. I'll follow your advice though I was tempted to find what fifty SHEDS of grey had to offer. :O)

16 Sep, 2015

 

Do let us know if you find out ;)

Hope you had a good day Seaburn..and cake 🎂
