Just remember how much we are paying to use DS.
Fair point. But just because it's free doesn't mean it's working well. Arrrrrrgh!

That's true. It's free and is supported by advertising, but if the ads almost completely cover the page, making it unusable, well, they've defeated the purpose, haven't they? And there have been some days lately during which we simply haven't been able to read and reply because of those massive ads that expand and cover the page. There's definitely a problem here. I thought the problem only affected those of us in the US, with those targeted ads, but cc.cookie is seeing the Transformers-the-Ride_universal-Florida ad in Australia too (which makes me wonder about the functionality of so called targeted ads).

There's definitely a malfunction going on here.

I just had a problem clicking to see a spoiler. There was no 'visible' ad but every time I clicked the spoiler button it took me to the National Guard page. Finally I refreshed the page and the 'invisible' ad was gone and I was fine. Weird!

I sent Andy a couple of new screenshots today and heard back from him that they are working on it. He said they heard back from the ad company today, so maybe something will happen soon.

I started reporting this two months ago. Maybe the ad company is working for free.

Oddly enough, the whole time I have been in England, I havent seen any of these that cover any part of messages.

I just watched Series 3 Ep 5, The Holly Bears A Prickle, and I noticed Mick sitting on that low wall facing the ocean at Bert's restaurant. It makes me nervous. I'm always afraid someone is going to fall!
The docmartinonline store ought to sell Louisa's perfume, Kenso Flower.
Louisa's bed is kinda squeaky.

Here's a link to a website for Kenso Flower. Would you be surprised to find out it has a musky odor? Read some of the customer comments at the bottom: they're really funny!

Funny! Some commenters think it smells like heaven, and others think it smells like Play-doh.

I don't wear any perfume now b/c so many people are sensitive to it or at least object to any scents (at least where I live) but I do seem to remember reading that most perfumes give off different fragrances on different people -- that is, the perfumes interact differently with each wearer's body chemistry.

That's true. That's why testing on your wrist is important! Also I think everyone recognises different things thru scents esp memories that are evoked with some scents.

I just thought the comments were very funny. I am not sure some of them were tongue and cheek. Especially since DM had a reaction to it.

I read the comments too. I don't think I'll be trying it too soon. Any scent with all this controversy would not be for me...like Giorgio or Estée Lauder pee yuu.
I remember when we went on a cruise and perfume sales were a big thing - UUUGGGHHH. I was already sea sick the first couple of days and then to not be able to get away from the cloying scents was awful - migraine highway - never wanted to go on another cruise.
For a long time I did not walk through the perfume section in department stores and that can take some doing since they seem to always put them at the front. Held my breath, head down and plowed through.
I am perfume and scent free and hate going to things like concerts and other large events as there is always someone who bathed in some noxious scent.

There's a series of photos up at FB now showing a Louisa scene being filmed in late March. Very interesting scene, with an explanation of what we're seeing with one of the photos.

Shop Girl, isn't that the Rix house in these photos? Or just similar?

Spoiler


Keep clicking next to see the whole scene.
Wow - lots of new stuff yesterday but that one was the most interesting - and puzzling. The house looks a LOT like the Rix house and according to the poster it is on Lundy St, which is where the Rix house is. But I kept going back and forth to my pictures and it just doesn't completely match. The pictures I got were from a website listing the house for sale about 6 months ago. On the two sides we could see the windows are completely different and parts of the house just don't match.

So, either the builder of the house constructed two similar houses on that street or there has been some extensive remodeling.

A couple of pictures I hadn't seen before - looks like some extracurricular activities for the DM cast and crew.

My scent memory is rather similar. I was traveling in Europe and on the Hovercraft that travels across the English Channel from Dover to France. It was a choppy trip so my ex-hubby was very ill. I'm not prone to motion sickness but somebody had bought Giorgio perfume duty free and doused herself and her companions with it. It reeked to high heaven. Couple that with the boat having, without a doubt, no contest, the absolute worst loo I'd ever had the dubious pleasure to see and smell (overflowing with poop)

The trip was atrocious. Giorgio has been the one of the gakkiest smells in my memory since then. My stomach flips just thinking about it. Yuk

I don't much like enclosed spaces, but the chunnel car train (you drive your car onto a train with a long series of boxcars) sounds like a better way to go -- 35 minutes shore to shore and surprisingly tolerable. If there is a next time ..... Of course, you then have to drive your British car with right had drive on the right side of the road in France, but my daughter was surprisingly proficient at that.

This was 1987...no Chunnel then..maybe next time (when they shoot S7 hopefully.

But don't the pictures of the "beach party" show someone down? I thought that was why they were running.
