Do you see all this (except maybe the music)? Is it real? An image? Several images? Is the lighthouse a real live lighthouse? A model? Is all this inside something? On something? Is there an aquarium? Is it a computer game? Did someone put all this there?

Did the aquarium stop existing? Stop being there? turn invisible? Do you see patterns and imagine them to be objects? In a kaleidoscope? Are you watching a screen of some sort? Listening to something?

Is it relevant that one of your recent puzzles had "all will be revealed" as part of the title? Did the migraine-related ad appear while reading that puzzle?

Is it relevant that one of your recent puzzles had "all will be revealed" as part of the title? Did the migraine-related ad appear while reading that puzzle? you have the right idea, so I will spoil, but I didn't see that one on that puzzle.

Border collies are nice dogs... they are indeed, and a most relevant ad. So lovely as always to see you! Could you email me so that I know which address to write to you?

************* SPOILER **************

I've been noticing that the Google ads at the top of each page sometimes relate to something that's written within the puzzle. So, my puzzle on those having a swine flu jab this afternoon had swine flu vaccination related ads.

Not all puzzles have individualised ads, they are general ones for puzzles. The one that I found very funny was Associate's puzzle 'Detective, we have a suspect.' The idea that somebody being murdered might have the need for migraine relief or anxiety management was rather ironic. Maybe there should have been one for anger management for the murderer? I've just looked again and see ads for voluntary work abroad, hmmm...

The one that freaked me was about baby products above this puzzle. Not once have babies been mentioned but I had just written something about childbirth on ANOTHER forum. Is Google checking my keystrokes??

Since then I have looked at people's profiles and some of them (like mine) have related ads, mine were all dog related at one point. Others have adverts for travel to India or Indian dating sites. These are on people who have said that they're from India. Yet one profile had Indian related ads, and he hadn't said where he is from. Is Google tracking IP addresses? Will I have ads for Hong Kong if I travel there again??

The words in my puzzle statements were random objects to see if I could see related ads. They didn't always work. However, refreshing the page can bring up new ads so time will tell.


Thank you one and all - teamwork is great!

That's freaky. My profile ads are for Irish Maps , Northern Ireland Tourist Breaks & Savings accounts with a rival Irish Bank (I work in banking, and have mentioned maps of Ireland and northern Ireland in some puzzles recently). I'm going to put something like "I'd love an Aston Martin DB9 for less than 5k" in my profile and see if someone offers me one.

Just browsing through some other puzzles, the ads actually give a good idea of what the puzzle is about and whether the subject matter will appeal to you.
