Have you ever bought shoes online? I have bought many pairs of shoes online, despite having hard-to-fit feet. Sometimes, shoes simply follow me around the Internet (this type of advertising is called retargeting) until I simply give in and buy them. Other times I have bought shoes that simply showed up ONCE as an ad on Facebook because they were exactly what I wanted! This type of personalized advertising is powered by little text files called cookies.
I’m okay with shoe companies targeting me with shoe ads. How about you? Well, for you it may be ads for ties, or purses, or ???
See ya on the Net,

Flag Day Printable(** for Premium Members only)
With roots in the nineteenth century, June 14th wasn’t officially established as Flag Day until May 30, 1916, when President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation. It’s celebration continued in various communities for many years, but it didn’t really take off until August 3, 1949 when President Harry Truman signed an Act of Congress designating it National Flag Day.

Library of Congress: Today in History: June 14
“To date, there have been twenty-seven official versions of the flag, but the arrangement of the stars varied according to the flag-makers’ preferences until 1912 when President Taft standardized the then-new flag’s forty-eight stars into six rows of eight.” Visit the Library of Congress to learn about the history of Flag Day, and the history of the American flag.
