Of course. Just not on your own machine.
Who do you know that would enjoy having some more interesting ads appearing?

 

Got some real interesting wish and other ads coming up on someone at works computer with some lunchtime googling on their unlocked computer.

Maybe someone's had their mitts on my phone too, as I have no idea why these are under 'frequently used' (although in reality I'm sure it's just a bug).

Incredible short shipping from China to EU. Sometimes faster than national shipping within country.

The Supercheap/Bathurst 1000 "press conferences" https://www.supercheapauto.co.nz/press-conference

 

 

 

We’re breaking our silence on the Bathurst 1000 cheating scandal. By ‘cheating scandal’ we mean Bathurst leaving us for another sponsor.

 

Regarding the recent incident involving a certain email and a certain employee, we would like to apologise. Also please don't use the link for the exclusive offer in the email.





Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Not really sure where to put this one, so here goes... was taking my retired neighbours out for coffee at the mall, and the coffee place had a bar-chart poll where you could mark which party you supported. National was way ahead, which they were pleased about.

 

 

So I told them to look at the customers in this cafe. Not a single one was under seventy, all were white, and given that this is the North Shore all were well-off by NZ-wide standards. So it wasn't a poll of how the election was going to go, it was a poll of which party old well-off white people support.

 

 

Made me smile, even if they weren't so happy when I pointed it out.

I recently had my end of year appraisal.

 

Part of that was 360deg reviews from my staff and a select section of my peers.

 

 

They said nice things.

 

 

It made me smile. Briefly.

Yesterday we put our annual meat share from a young bull/cow into the freezer. :-)

Nope. I don't know what you do with your cows. In any case, she stood with her siblings out at feed next to the house of our friends until last Monday and was allowed to grow up freely for 1.5 years. The friends are veterinarians themselves.

 

If you want to be absolutely sure, you have to eat trustworthy fast food burgers and/or be a enlightened believer. 🐮🐮😄
