I don't use ad blocking, but, I sure am tired of seeing those same people at the top of the screen. I don't even know who is advertising or what the product is - just can't stand the pictures.

Hey dont ask me. I'm not a doctor and didnt play one on tv.

But I think it has something to do with putting the lime in the coconut. Make you feel better. Call me in the morning.
