Right now I am getting holiday bnb /cottage ads for a place called Pidley.
What on earth have I posted to trigger that particular algorithm! [ grin]

And now it’s vegan shoes.
I didn’t know you could get carnivorous shoes [ confused]

I bought some shoes in a sale, from next or similar, maybe debenhams when closing down, it said inside those that they are vegan.Yes, i was confused too.🤔

Vegans wont wear leather shoes. Artificial leather is fine. Instead for advertising them as synthetic, they are now calling them vegan!

I get Flemish adverts, fair enough, actually just got one from a Wine festival which I had forgotten I had tickets to, handy reminder.
Most are for insurance and estate agents ?????

I don't get bothered by advertisements on the mobile site. The boxes they ought to be in are blank.
On the desktop site however, the adverts are for retirement flats. I admit that I have been looking at retirement properties, in the hope that I can persuade DH that we should be thinking about our future needs. He is having none of it!

Being vegan is about avoiding exploiting animals in any way. It is not just about not eating their bodies and not consuming milk that mothers made for their babies.
