I needed to phone Social Services in respect of an elderly neighbour, so googled Adult Services followed by my town & county. Well! The local authority details were way down the list after details of various other types of adult services nearby. blush
I always thought this little town was boring!

But would your elderly neighbour appreciate all these adult services? Although they might prove rejuvenating .......

I think my husband would enjoy those as well. I must now go and do a bit of googling on his behalf.

I've led a sheltered life wink

Just did a quick check - my town really is as staid and old fashioned as I thought. Only two iffy 'paid for' national ads at the top of the page and then on to nursing homes etc.

I hope you all realise that the URLs of those sites you Googled will stay on your computers for ever and ever. The thought police will get you in the end! There is no hiding place! Exterminate!

That did cross my mind Elegran!
However, if my daughters find the trail of URLs after I've gone off to the big google in the sky, I love the idea that they'll have to hush it all up to preserve the grandchildren's memories of their Nana. Hilarious! grin

That's not to mention all the dodgy emails you will get, offering to enlarge, lengthen or vitalise parts of your anatomy that you possibly don't even have (but if you don't have them, I'm sure you will get emails that can fix that as well grin) I of course don't get these, but I know someone who does !!
