NEW 'DEVICE!!!

A new unwanted  'DEVICE' has now appeared suddenly among text on this site, and other blogs.  Certain words are highlighted in colour and underlined. If you move the cursor over them, various adverts will appear, from gambling opportunities to Russian women!  I have no idea how this unwelcome intrusion has occurred.  If YOU know, I would appreciate hearing from you.

Today, August 2nd, the device mentioned above has disappeared!

"IDLE HANDS . . . "


"Idle hands are the devil's tools", said a bystander as I took this picture. The cones, used to mark a nearby danger spot on the road, taken during the hours of darkness and placed on the still-unfinished fountain. The culprits should realise that these cones were in situ to prevent accidents.

The proverb/phrase attributed to Chaucer from  circa 1386, I've been told.

Local barber, Liam, not the culprit, just surveying the scene on July 3rd last.
