Oh, I just read Jane’s comment about ads. WordPress puts ads on all our blog posts unless we pay to upgrade to an ad free blog. The ads are supposed to be sympathetic to the blog content but I guess it’s a fairly random process. You post a photo of skin and WordPress automatically puts up an ad about a skin treatment.
I just upgraded my blog to ad free because I wanted more photo space. I had used up all the free space. It was a bit of a tricky process because I apparently clicked on the wrong thing and got myself in a real muddle where my blog redirected to someone else’s! The WordPress staff sorted it out quickly via email though.
The thing is, the ads don’t appear on my posts, apparently they are attacked to email subscribers at this stage. I’ve wanted to upgrade and will investigate how to do it easily and pain-free. Thanks Suzanne.
Yes I couldn’t see the ads on my blog but I have seen them on other people’s blog. I don’t follow blogs by email but follow through my WordPress reader so I don’t believe they are attached to emails!
Wow – that’s the best snake skin I’ve ever seen. I love the eye holes.
The second one I’ve found entirely whole. It’s a marvel for sure.
Chinese kite. In my email your post has an ad tagged on the end which is really yuk. It’s about getting rid of skin tags and moles. I thought it was part of your post at first glance!
The ad doesn’t appear on the post though! Wonder if it’s Google or WP that put it there?
It seems to be all the WP posts in my Outlook box, so I suppose it’s a microsoft thing.
Google, Microsoft, WP, Blogger, theservice providers … it’s a cartel!
I realise it’s a split screen photo of two faces. It looks like a person with no nose shoving his /her hacked off nose into someone else’s ear.
Uhm Jane, I don’t think this comment is meant for me?
It is! I’m describing the ad that appears at the bottom of the WordPress posts sent to my Outlook account 🙂
It doesn’t show on the post, I checked. You’ll know to just ignore it.
The ad’s a different one today anyway.
Like an alien bird (K)
Remarkable photo. Looks like it is flying, the way it is wrapped on itself.
Found it in another part of the garden, all straight and arranged it like that for the photo.
Good choice. You must be an artist. (haha!)
Any guesses as to the make and model of snake, Petru?
Not sure Bruce. Could be bushveld green snake, boomslang (young one) or the ordinary grass snake. Won’t be of a puffadder, they’re much broader.
No not a puffadder not with that narrow neck/head and eye placement. But a boomslang – urgh – maybe I think it is a possibility!
Seen a live one here before! Luckily they’re more scared of us than us of them.
If it’s the skin of the boomslang, then yes, otherwise not so much. I can’t help marvel at how even the face shows! Found a few over the years.
