Not sure if this is a general phenomen for anyone accessing my blog or just a localized issue for my computer, but this evening when I went to my blog I discovered that certain terms were highlighted and that when I moved my cursor over them a "Play Pickle" ad popped up. If others are experiencing this, it is not my doing--but if anyone knows how to get rid of it, let me know. I do not advertise on my site, and I certainly don't host free advertising.


  1. Eric,

    There is what seems to be a game site named “playpickle” and, from what I understand, their software may produce these ads you're seeing. Probably someone installed it on your computer. Their site says it can be uninstalled the usual way (from control panel).

  2. JP--Thanks. I managed to get it off my computer. Turns out it was something my son managed to put on there while trying to play Pac Man.
