The fix

Hey Mates, I too don't like the ads. Here's the fix:

Get the adblock plus extension then go to adblock plus options where it allows you to Block and ad by it's URL

In the right input box where it talks about the domain, type

Code: Select all

open.spotify.com

and the input box on the left type

Code: Select all

/mp3-ad/

. Then click the block it button.

Now when spotify wants to play an ad you get a pop up in the top of the page saying some rubbish about reloading your page because of an error but then it goes on to the next song without an ad.

Now you want to talk fishing, here is an old April fools my daughter and I  played on my mother. 
My daughter made her phone text as another number to my mom and said,
" Welcome to cat facts! We will now send you free cat facts hourly!" So the next few hours
we sent various cat facts. Moms didn't say anything, so we send , 
" we are glad you like cat facts, would you like the "premium" version of cat facts for $25 a month? You will receive cat facts every 5 mins.
Text yes or no."  She types "no" of course and we send back, " welcome to the premium version of cat facts, your credit card will be billed immediately."
Instead of texting back like we thought she would, she calls us at the spoofed number! We don't answer. Then she calls our house 
phone and tells us about the "cat facts". I had to reel her in. She wasn't happy. Lesson learned, don't make people think 
their credit card will be charged. Still funny though...

The Norwood family is getting a dog next week.  My wife and I are currently in a blood feud trying to decide on a name.  She keeps wanting to give it a human-like name like Maggie or Lucy.

I'm currently lobbying for Bark Obama.

It's funny. I'm picturing the first time you have to chase her through a public park.

Oh, she's "one of those" types, huh?  Just name it Kevin and get it over with (and then proceed to call the dog "Arf Vader" whenever she isn't around anyway).

Seriously....what kind of person names their dog "Kevin"?  Or "Phillip"?

Used to be a couple at the dog park we frequented in Nevada who had done both. :mellow: I could never bring myself to take them seriously about anything.

Not a real dog.  It's different if they can talk. :) He also has a last name, which makes it less galling to me ("Brian" or "Max" also sounds more like a dog's name than "Phillip", etc).

Yeah, I've known people who did this too.  I dunno....just doesn't compute with me for whatever reason.  I mean, if you're going to potentially be screaming your pet's name at the top of your lungs in public why not go for a little more gusto/panache?  "DAVID! STOP HUMPIN' THAT OLD BROAD'S LEG!" sounds a lot more To Catch A Predator-y than the same phrase with "Tupac Shacorgi" swapped in as the name.

Found somethIng worse. Stranger next to me trying to talk shop. 

Trying to talk shop....with you?  Yeah, cram that noise right up its cram-hole, LeFleur.

Also worse: The kind of folks who walk into a room, observe someone clearly reading a book and then ignore that and attempt to engage in convo or, even more mind numbingly ask "Whatcha doin'/readin'?"

I found something worse.  Hope you are not sitting next to this guy on the plane.

His seat was wet and smelled like urine. It was just the start of an 11-hour flight
