Hi, Graham. People imagination is incredible. I think that everything could have its place in the net as long as it weren’t a crime, of course. From now on, It’s going to be easier for people who want to have a relation like that. That’s internet world, there you can find everything you want to get.

See you tomorrow!

Hi Hilde,

Good to see that you still make use of the blog from time to time.

I have seen this advertistment on a BILLBOARD near my home, but I thought it was a CLEVER ADVERT for SOMETHING ELSE!

"A commercial" is only found on TV or radio.
"other" is used with plurals, "another" with singular nouns.

Montse,

People find this advertisement amusing. I wonder what the reaction would be if the advert encouraged married men to have affairs. Something tells me that there would be an outcry.
