Hi everyone just joined, I was actually googling does anyone else hate those advertising meerkats, come across this site and hey presto I'm here. Also got fed up with facebook, well the advertising actually. Am I the first to say MERRY CHRISTMAS" everyone, I was supposed to go away for Christmas with the family but now cancelled....no flights. I talk too much. Hi.

Hello, Violettham, are you new too? Welcome if you are.

Welcome jifncif the meerkats wash over me, like most ads, except in the latest where one of them has a similar voice to a character in Ghosts, which is bugging me.

Hello jifncif good to hear from a new member, same here with the festive visit to the family, no flights. There are quite a few of us on GN who have not seen our families for a year or more now, let's hope 2021 brings better news.

i don't care about the meerkats, but i like the little koala who makes his exit defly down the unfurled toilet paper out the bathroom window.

Hi jifncif welcome to gransnet.

I like the meerkats. They're such a daft concept. Not sponsoring Corrie after the end of the month. I wonder who's going to be the next sponsor.

Welcome Jifncif, wonder if we’ll be able to call cif jif again after Brexit?
Not keen on the meerkats at all and doubly perturbed by the Russian accent when they come from southern parts of Africa.

Hi Jifncif....Welcome !! Actually, I do like the meerkats, but let's not quarrel over that.
Have fun on this site......this is my 'go to' place to relax.....really !!

I didn't know that Jane10 as you say it will be interesting to see who is the next sponsor.

Carenza123 Tue 24-Nov-20 08:43:30

Welcome jifncif. And a Merry Christmas to you and yours. I find this site interesting and informative.

BlueBelle Tue 24-Nov-20 08:44:04

No I didn’t know the meerkats were going from Corrie never really understood the concept of why the Russian connection but they do make me smile they re much more amusing than a lot of the ads in my opinion

NotSpaghetti Tue 24-Nov-20 08:53:40

Hello and welcome.

LauraNorder Wed 25-Nov-20 17:08:58

Maybe Jif or Cif will be the next sponsor

Hello and welcome to the folks who have just joined. I don't really take any notice of the adverts, but I do like meerkat, the real ones. Today is the first Sunday in Advent, a time of looking forward to Christmas.
