A week or so ago, I was searching for a replacement filter for Lori's central air conditioner. Amazon was one of the places I ended up on.

Now, today, I go to a local television station's site, and one of the banner ads comes up and shows me the air filters I was looking at.......from Amazon.

Cookies leave crumbs. LOL.
I can fix this by manually going into my browser and deleting the Amazon cookies.
Just found it interesting.
