    In the Greyhound on Tuesday, I was talking to some bloke who mentioned that he's always wanted to visit the island of Iceland - I am now receiving offers of flights..

    I'm being offered the chance to have an Asian bride...... Don't swing that way.
    Failing that do I want to sell my house? No.

    I'm being offered the services of a real estate agent in Akron, Ohio. They must know that I have this LP. Where will all this data mining end?

    It might be Malaysia - they might think it'll take @Helen Goff a good while on that bike...?

    Given overnight events it slightly amused me to have a disaster relief thing offered.

    Last night, I received a veritable torrent of take-away leaflets - I suppose they've been holding back for a while, to avoid getting mixed in with election bumf and they all want to get in first again...?

    Facebook is offering me the opportunity to go to an Open Day at Abingdon Ford Transit Centre on Saturday. Apparently, three people are going, one is fifteen, one is about twenty and works in a nearby garden centre coffee shop, and the third lives in Singapore.

    I don't have adverts on Facebook, due to using adblock.
    Took it off for here.
    I am not being offered a Chinese bride, and, to pick her up and bring her back here, Go Cars will do the job! I shall quite happily pass on both thank you. Don't these advertisers realise the only taxi company I use is Staffords very own Westlife?!

    I'm being offered the opportunity to buy tickets online to visit a UNESCO World Heritage Site - a salt mine in Poland.

    The chain on my bike is pretty iffy now, the salt would probably finish it off...

    I've had Drayton Manor hallooing me - don't think they've had to shut any rides.

    I am currently subject to two banners.

    One is extolling the virtues of foreign exchange trading, whilst casually mentioning that my losses may exceed any deposits I make.

    The other is promoting polygamy and exhorting me to follow the 'sunnah' - the fundamentals of the Muslim way of life.

    Neither of these seem well-aimed at me....
