    I completely understand why the ads are here. It costs money to run a site like this, I just found it ...........odd. Maybe Tyson wants to "convert" us back to the "Dark Side" again. [​IMG]

    I kind of use AdBlock, too. I'm on slow satellite and the less I have to load the happier I am.

    If it's a Google ad (or an ad revenue business) then Tyson is probably just purchasing bulk advertising and letting it go out anywhere chicken- or cooking-related. They probably don't know half the places the ad actually shows up.

    Besides, only a portion of this site raises their own chickens. The rest happily munch down KFC and Tyson products for one reason or another.

    Yeah, lots of odd things can come in though google ad's. I don't think nifty or google knows what goes though half the time either, since doesn't google ad's work on key word only?
