One again one of our members is being stalked on Facebook by a favored retailer using her favorite brand. The member happened to look at a pair of shoes (of course) yesterday on their site, then went through the usual cookie deleting. Then, sure enough, the shoes showed up on her FB Home page anyway! She is frustrated, annoyed and feels her privacy is being invaded. She does't want to see her browsing history on Facebook. She has made the painful decision not to buy (other retailers carry that brand) from that retailer again. We're left wondering when will retailers realize E-Stalking is a turnoff. Related: E-Stalking
We're excited about Fall Back and wishing everyone a safe Happy Halloween! But is there a need to Trick or Treat this year? Most of us have been anxiously eating candy and wearing a mask for months! 😷 Jon Stewart is heading back to TV . We're wondering, after five years away from a nightly program, can and will Stewart's show for Apple live up to what are undoubtedly be high expectations. Yes, November 3rd is approaching! The of anxiety, fear and unrest in America has been unbelievable. Let's VOTE and settle down America. And, no matter what anyone says, brands have found a way through social media to maintain income growth and stay relevant. Good for them! In Memoriam ....Saw the Conversation Circle come back together after a long hiatus. There was little time to exchange opinions and views . Many of us were caught up in changing careers and dealing with family demands. Then the pandemic arrived, and so did uncertainty. But, now we're back on track!
Aside from nearly being brought to tears on several occasions, we did manage to maintain a lump in our throats for the better part of the day. The dress was stunning. Her hair was perfectly imperfect and Meghan was naturally regal!

Best wishes to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex .

Ratings Sunday's 88th Academy Awards was down 3 million viewers from last year. While the show drew 34.4 million viewers, it was the lowest viewership since 2008. (The 2005 Oscars, hosted by Chris Rock , was not among the lowest rating years.) While down in the ratings, male viewership was up across all demos. This could be attributed to interest in Chris Rock and viewers who are familiar with him as a comedian. Media outlets, so far, have not determined if the "boycott" (that was called for by prominent actors) attributed to the drop in ratings. An unofficial poll of The Conversation Circle's friends noted, there were people who decided not to watch the 2016 Oscars broadcast. Related: 2016 Oscars Opening Monologue Straight To The Point
