In the caption above ‘Around the Web’ on this Newsletter it says “California launches no out of pocket cost solar program.” Please correct that image. The person pictured is the governor of the State of Florida. His name is Ron DeSantis. Gavin Newsom is the real governor of California. Please change this image.

Hi, Sharon. Those items above and below “Around the Web” are auto-inserted by Google AdSense. We have absolutely nothing to do with the content, and there is no way we can change the image. They are automatically inserted based on the user’s previous viewing history and/or their location, and are different for everyone. I just clicked on the post you commented on and the image above “Around the Web” showed an ad for RVshare. I refreshed the page and the ad changed to one for rodent control. When you’re on a page and see that ad, try refreshing the page and see if it doesn’t change for you, also. Sorry we can’t do anything about that image. Take care. 🙂 –Diane
