    So I have Gmail and I have heard that Google does not "read" my emails, but they do make suggestions for ads based on key words in my emails (which seems to me to be the same as reading them!)

    This is what the sidebar read this morning:

    Weird.. Thanks for sharing.

    Thankfully most of us don't have to worry about:

    HA HA.

    Thankfully, I have a computer whiz teenage son who has all kinds of stuff installed on my computer to block various tracking programs. That includes a bunch of Google stuff...

    I used to handle all my own computer stuff. I now call him when something strange is going on. He's advanced far beyond anything I've ever bothered to learn and is mostly self-taught...

    I couldn't stand it, I googled chicken incinerator. They incinerate the poop. What a monumental waste.

    I use my security sweeper and just delete all the tracking cookies on a regular basis. It annoys me.

    Well....

    Case 1) you have a flock of birds with ILT, they will have to be Culled... So you can Burn the bodies and take that ashes away... or you can dig a BIG hole and berry them... And then maybe risk getting ILT again...


    Or) You just don't look at the adds...
