Have not seen that but I do now have an add for AARP at the bottom of my screen that was never anything there before. :aiwebs_016:. Also - does anyone else have the "My Ex-Wife Killed in Freak Accident Last Night!!!" at the bottom of their TPF just under the page numbers? And if you do...have you clicked it? WHAT HAPPENED????? :popcorn:

We don't get the popcorn guy nearly enough on this site anymore.

I've seen that one a few times, but I don't click on them.

I see that ex wife killed link all the time but have never clicked on it.

I installed AdBlock and restarted the phone a few times. As of last night, I was still getting the ads but this morning, it appears to have stopped. I hope I didn't just jinx myself! It was so annoying!

Depending on which blocker you use, you may be able to block an "element," an entire frame.

Is anyone else suddenly getting pop up ads at the top of the screen on mobile Chrome? It just started happening and I already want to throw the phone violently against a wall. It's only happening on this site.

Nope, nothing like that on my end.

I missed your follow-up post here - glad you got it under control. That kind of stuff will drive me buggy, too!

Happy weekend Hosers. Another weekend of planting for me. I’ve got a new cherry blossom tree to plant today and some rose bushes before the weekend is done. Right now it’s 60s and a bit misty. Perfect planting weather.

Those are going to look great against that psint job, Sharon! Watch your back after all that digging. 😆

It's misting and cool around here, too. Kind of stuck in this weather pattern for several more days. Still, this beats the year when everyone's Halloween pumpkins were rotting on their porches from the heat!

Haven't gotten a weird ad in awhile, but did get a porn invite email from a forum member over the weekend.

Not a real forum member - persistent spam bots! ;) We're deleting them routinely.

Our techs are aware of this issue. The captured spam outweighs this batch, it's ticked up a lot lately.

Great to see you, katomi. Looks like lovely weather in your part of the world.

Happy First Day of Fall, hosers!! My favorite time of year. 🍂

We still have a few hummingbirds around, fighting over the feeders. Our temps are supposed to plummet over the next couple of days, and it will likely drive them off. *sniffle* I love watching them.

Good afternoon, hosers. I only have a minute to check in - MLW and her oldest full sister are clearing out middle full sister's trailer; I'm making landfill and donation box runs, and need to get back before time to turn the truck in. Mid sister had a couple of her toes amputated and has developed heart disease, but didn't want to go through the heart surgery. She will be living with the older sis once she is out of rehab. We're hoping she'll change her mind about the surgery.

We've reclaimed our former dining room table from Sherry's (Mom was using it for a while when the place was hers), and a rocking chair Ada was storing for us. Pics after everything is cleaned up and put into place. We also have all of the old photos and MLW's late brother's drawings. We still have another rocker that Lazy Lobster wants, so that goes on our next trip north.
