advertisement flashing at the top of GN is bloody annoying? Me a scout too! wink

The flashing is 'doin' me 'ead in'! DH is painting the kitchen and what with the smell of the paint and the flashing (of the advert, not DH) is getting to me a bit!

grin green I have had a good laugh after reading your post grin

Whats with all these flashing adverts everywhere you look. I cant even watch a good football match without the hoarding catching your eye, no wonder they can knock a decent game together it must be off putting.

What scout – I can't see a scout?

absentgrana Fri 16-Sep-11 14:17:06

Oh, that one. You can't see it when you're composing your words of wisdom, only after you've posted.blush

Nor can I absent - no flashing images on my laptop, thankfully.

Annobel It's at the top but not very flashy – just little captions that change a few times. We're not talking Piccadilly Circus here. smile

No! Still no scout on mine. Maybe I don't get adverts?

Sometimes it goes back to the piggybank. He keeps still, bless him.

I think the flashing scout (so to speak) might only be on the login page. That's a relief.

Are you referrring to the two women holding a flag. Looks like something from Soviet Russia, telling all women to go forth and work for their homeland,have the community spirit, we are all in it together. Just a minute haven't I heard that before somewhere???

Now it has turned up on mine!

I thought she was a Russian winner of mother-of-ten-medal waving that flag - but I have no scout and no flashing - or should that be a flashing scout - oh dear no.
