When I adjusted my settings to accommodate friends who did not have blogs of their own and were having trouble leaving comments, I started getting the same 'anonymous' troll, sometimes with the same obviously not relevant comment as on a previous post, but I've still got 'approval first' so it's not a problem. I mark it spam but it doesn't quit. Interesting but not that interesting. Tedious is more like it, similar to robo-calls on the telephone. Previously I had a 'no approval' status and then I got hundreds of 'google' spams unrelated to whatever my post was about. Just sayin' and wondering if any of my real blog friends get similar comment anomalies? Do you ever wonder if there are real people behind the phenomenon?

The rest of this post contains links.
If you go to a link and I hope you do, when you want to return to the post, just click on the back arrow. Someday soon I will figure out how to have a link open in a new tab.

Real life continues with a Sunday afternoon haircut from Marla when Helen was unavailable. She was slightly shocked when I asked for a dual selfie, but she complied and I forgot to turn the flash off.

Currently "Unforgotten" is running on Channel 13 Sunday nights at 9PM in Manhattan, wherein Nicola Walker leads the crime-fighting duo on MASTERPIECE Mystery! But the series’ complicated cold-case investigations surprise even her as they unfold week after week for a total of seven episodes. The first episode was superb. You can watch it here:
On my way home I waited to catch the sun going down behind this church on East 14th Street.

A beautiful day all together and in the evening I ran into our 'leader' on my way to the regular writing group downtown. A truly nice man and quite a wonderful writer as well. He is a volunteer and provides us with some of the best two hours of creative freedom on record.

I keep up with the world International, National and local via many diverse sites and sources, but it speaks for itself and I just don't want to talk about it here this week. However, this is a shot of a news stand in my neighborhood and...
 ...I must admit the story of Todd Brassner, the man who died, though sad, has most interesting details relating to real estate and collectibles:

Facebook and the 87 million whose data was sold to Cambridge Analytica who then allowed politicians and others to use that data for their own agendas. This is the first day of two days of Senate hearings:

I watched your link to "Unforgotten". Excellent. I will continue to watch it. The photo of the church, well worth waiting for!
In real life, DNA Has solved cold cases, if it was collected and preserved. I think I would have made a great detective.
