I have NOT authorised any adverts on any of my blogs.
If you should see any and would rather not then I recommend the use of AdBlockPlus or something similar from the Mozilla add-ons for Firefox or Chrome to hide them. You will have a blank space but the annoying adverts will be gone. I wish I could make them "be gone".
Do not click on any "in text" links ~ none were set by me.
