    I actually quite like them :oops:

    BUT am angry at WHAT they are advertising (nicely sandwiched between the ads for Chrsitmas prezzies and other 'must haves') and to whom

    Reassuring eh?

    You can trust older folks - they are experienced and trustworthy. Pretty good marketting l suppose Mell.

    They are a little creepy but at least they serve as a good warning that the programme I was watching is coming back after the addy break (as I fast-forward thro those tiresome things). DD
