It's kicked in alright!

I've got four ads relating to sewing machines (bought sewing kit for poorly GS). One ad for boiler installation (in process of purchasing new one). One for 'unoccupied home insurance', and one for a mortgage (loan shark!) company. Those two last ones relate to us helping DS purchase his house in Exeter.

It's creepy! shock

This relates to Google. Sorry! missed that bit off the title.

The ads have appeared in my gmail account.

Apparently you can opt out - and you could change your gmail account, according to the young sounding man on the radio yesterday.
