Is anyone else getting really, really, really sick and tired of these things on the site? They are beginning to drive me mad !

Short of switching to Firefox or some browser other than IE, is there any way to get rid of them? Or at least make them keep still?

The people over at Gardenweb's Computer Help Forum might be able to help. I don't see any ads, none, but I don't know what I do or have done to prevent them.

Thanks, albert - I checked, but no solutions. Funny thing - today the ads are just sitting still at the top of the pages. Either the iVillage folks got complaints, or the gods are with me.

They are driving me up the wall too!! Still there, but sometimes they don't 'expand'.

FYI, I had some seeds of your Petunias leftover from a couple of years back and decided to sow them this winter. I have lots of sprouts and they are looking just fine!! :O)

They're back! The expanders, that is ....

Tiffy, I sent you petunia seeds? What kind were they? At any rate, glad they sprouted for you! I've got a chia pet of petunias right now, really need to HOS them out.

I don't see any ads at all, either. I use Firefox with adblock plus, and we have some embedded adblocks and firewall.
