I found a way to test to see if my searches were reflected in my tailor made
ads. They were. So, I decided to confuse the big brother.
Here's how:
Start searching things that you have never searched for, or, have interest in.
Examples: Flight costs to Madrid Spain, Best hotel prices in Key West, Masters
Programs different Universities. Diseases, new Cars, Authors, Music, and search
for things you would never buy on Amazon and E Bay. LOL.
You should begin to see ads related to some of your searches begin to surface.

Since we can't stop them from tracking us, at least we can confuse them and
make our profile confusing to marketers.

I sleep well at night. My morning naps are fine too. It's the afternoon naps
that seem to make me toss and turn some.

2020 New Year resolutions:

If you haven't made any resolutions for 2020, consider these:

1. Visit an elderly person at home, or the nursing home
2. Send a get well card to someone who is sick, or in the hospital
3. Compliment a deserving minimum wage worker
4. Pay a credit on a needy person's utility bill
5. Give away something that may hurt a little

Even one of these will help someone, and make you a better person

Yep.

Love the avatar. Does this mean that you are into quail dogs, or just loved the picture?

^ Thanks. I just thought it was a thing of beauty to see the dog pointing with
his tail pointing up, and one paw lifted. We had them growing up, but with time,
life went in other directions. You are probably familiar with Grand Junction, TN
where the field trials are held annually. Those folks are serious. I have a friend
that raises quail to sell to restaurants. Some are sold to release and re populate.

Yep, know all about Grand Junction. Wife grew up there, her parents lived and died there. Her father was a forester at the Ames Plantation, where the Nation Quail Dog Field Trials are held each year. The plantation is a research trust held by Univ. of TN. They do research on several subjects; non irrigated cotton, forestry(timber), dairy production.

Interestingly old man Ames was a carpetbagger who bought up the land cheap after the Civil War. He was an industrialist from Boston, but he loved quail hunting. Put it in his will that UT had to continue to hold the field trials and preserve the course as long as they held the land.

I too had quail dogs and hunted while in high school - even before. My dad loved them on the dinner table, but he couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. If you have a shotgun in your hand and a good point, those beauties can rattle you to the bone when the covey flushed:)

It is good that folks are growing guail commercially since they are very endangered in the natural habitant.
