Thanks CT I can’t quote and type an answer so sorry if there’s a bit of confusion. No leave the photos as I posted but when I opened them to see if they were ok a load of adverts were attached. I’ve not seen them before when I’ve posted pics. Thanks anyway.

BK thanks that’s what I’d hoped not all the publicity that I saw.

There is more advert than photo, at first I wasn't sure what I was supposed to be looking at.

 

Edit:

After clicking on the small pics.

Nonna, When I tapped the photos, there was some other stuff there as well - a quote from Mr Trump and a weight loss advert!

On first looking at the post, I see two small photos arranged vertically. If I click on either of them I go to a Postimage page which has a lot of adverts.

 

The adverts include bungalows in Hull (!), and a lot of Dunelm products.

 

At least there are no glamorous ladies inviting me to join in their activities.

There is obviously some cookie or tracker on our machines which determine which adverts we see. I saw a cruise, an underground trip in Edinburgh and  holiday hotels... oh, and an invitation to meet girls from the Ukraine among others.

I'm going back up the page to see what I'm missing.

Actually, I didn't click on them, I just zoomed the screen.

Gonna see if I can find the lovey Ukraine ladies.    B.

 

 

Whoops !! You're right. Some unsuitable for adult audiences. (Not that I looked).

It's a great demonstration of how your internet activities are watched by dozens of digital spies noting where you go and what you look at.

 

Everyone clicking on those photos will have seen different adverts, based on what you've been looking at recently (supposedly).

 

I assume Brew hasn't really been investigating Ukrainian ladies; and I certainly haven't been looking at bungalows in Hull.

I often search  holiday adverts, so that's probably in my history.

I searched for decent hotels, booked on the internet and stayed in the Caledonian in Edinburgh

I also followed a BBC story about  Ukraine families and refugees and where they went, no ladies of any description were mentioned...

 

But! The trip to Edinburgh was before I built this machine, so it’s possible my IP is the trigger. Another possibility is our information is harvested and sold.

Well I clicked on the images just to see what adverts would appear, Nothing and I am always searching the internet. They must have worked out that from the sites I visit I must be plain boring.

Thought they had gone thanks to CT but apparently not. The photos are of me and husband and my son preparing cocktails. That’s all I posted but ads come up about cars and allsorts.   A pain nel culo.

Hope there’s no publicity now on these

Nothing on those adverts was what I was researching so goodness knows , maybe they think I might be interested in what they have to advertise. Not nice though if undesirable appears. But if CT didn’t remove the ads are they still there because I can’t see them anymore

Nonna, the ads only come up when you click on the pix. If you just zoom in there's no problem.   B.

Sorry for hogging this topic but its just occurred to me when posting photos does it matter how you choose to post? I usually post with direct link because for me it’s quicker from my phone. But posting the original photos I posted with whatever came so maybe that invited ads. Promise no more posts:hand:

I don't think the method of posting has any bearing on it nonna.

 

Adverts appear in Postimage because that's how they make their money; the image-hosting is free to you the user. With some services and apps, you can pay a premium to have no adverts.

A very satisfying, but tiring fist day of open gardens. We had a steady stream of visitors throughout the day - many of them sampling the cider. I've checked the dates and the cider was made in 2013 - so 9 years old. I wanted to display the barrel that was in the shed, which meant emptying it. I emptied 13 gallons into demijohns and a 6 gal earthenware container but it still kept coming! So the barrel is still in the shed and plenty of vintage cider to drink :cool: I put a warning notice on the earthenware jar saying that if you tried a sample it could make you ill or you may die! Made them want more.....

Many years ago we visited a cider farm in the Cotswolds. As I recollect it was in an old barn-like building with large barrels of cider along the wall. The proprietor staggered down the stairs to greet us. He was 'half cut', swaying around and with a strange grimace on his face. I paid my money and selected a pint to be poured. A pint was a mistake! I managed to drink it all but was rendered totally legless within minutes. My wife helped me to the car and drove me home where I slowly recovered. 

This was the second time I had been affected by cider. On a previous occasion we attended a Morgan car meeting near Malvern and drove over to Ledbury in Herefordshire. I had just one bottle of an unknown brew in a cafe where my legs buckled. Be very careful when tasting ciders!  :biggrin:

Normally I can hold my drink, not that I imbibe much these days, but home produced ciders seem to have a strange effect on me. I've just been walking round the orchard and we do have a glut of apples, mainly Bramleys, so I might get my scratter and fruit press out of the shed later this year. The Nottingham medlar tree is also laden but a couple of jars of jelly would be more than enough. I think I'll just leave them for the wildlife. There are neither quinces nor plums and we've only just managed to salvage a punnet of cherries before the birds eat them. The damson tree is hanging down to the ground with fruit and the pear trees have an abundance. The hay meadow is looking splendid as well. We normally open this up for one day in June for those interested in wild flowers, including wild orchids and yellow rattle, during the village 'open gardens' but that's been deferred until next year. It's much nicer being here than in an airport queue!

Phil, east ,west home is always best. I can imagine airports in this heat and especially as I see Ryan Air is on strike for a couple days. We had a terrific rain storm yesterday. It rained very heavily for 1/2 hr stopped and the sun came out and in 5-6 minutes the ground was dry. Temperatures going up to 39-40c. Im staying in all day with the windows and shutters closed until sunset then I'll emerge. Hope its not too hot tomorrow morning as its the celebration of 80 year olds this year and Im one of them.
