Re: Update - Google Ad experiment

The ads have gone for me. I did notice one that seemed to be offering a logging in service which seemed a bit fishy.

Re: Weird growths on chickens face [pics] [UPDATES]

We all know the reasons, some reasonable, essential even, some not so good. We were talking the other day about situations where the Police had to stay out of it until a viole...
