    I think Tdol had a good idea. Collect as many ads as you can. They can be from the Internet, television, billboards, whatever. Then evaluate the ads to determine their common characteristics. Get started!

    :D

    Mr tdol,
    You must be correct! When people getting older, they cannot remember things well! I sigh because I have already put one of my feet into a grave.

    Hey, don't feel bad about forgetting stuff. I forget stuff all the time. :)

    You are doing quite well. Your English is much better than my Chinese will ever be.

    Billboard from the KCRC train
    The billboard just shows the calendar of Chinese style on the day of 8 March.
    The wordings of the first sentence are this:

    You may not have a monthly reminder now.
    And there are second wordings, I will tell you tomorrow.
    Can the intelligent people think of what kind of this advertisement for?

    Yes, MikeNewYork, you are moving a right direction. Not to say a genius, at least you are very intelligent indeed!

    The billboard says:

    Remember to have regular cervical smears even after menopause.
