Eric: For those who have asked...

...we're doing minor adstuff again. No bigs, ignore if you wish. Hopefully it won't be too obtrusive.

I find it amusing that the ads I saw were for italian sausages.

Honestly, I hadn't noticed til I saw a mention someone made of it. If you were going for unobtrusive, it worked.

Yeah, there's some weird things coming up, so it's actually kind of amusing. I approve!

Yeah, you know the term, "unobtrusive?" It may come into play when EVEN AFTER reading a comment about the new ads and LOOKING for them, I had to read this, think "Whoa, seriously, there are ads here?" and then finally managed to see them.

Apparently I wasn't really using that bit of the screen?

(Also recently got gmail, so have been honing my inability to see google ads)

Although now that I can see them (fnord!) they are kinda fun. I could buy West Wing DVDs, or for some reason on this page teach my baby to sign (if I had a baby at this stage of my life I'd need to teach it to sign "Please adopt me!")

it's always funny that you can change the ads on the page simply by typing in key phrases like peanut butter cooking recipes peanuts nuts almonds and other interesting things

^ it didn't work that time. either there's too much non-cooking related material on this page or i'm simply nuts.

Got to lock this post. It's nothing personal. However, intentionally trying to skew Google Ads gets Google to drop you, and while we're being low key, we'd rather not be dropped.
