Hallandale Beach Blog - A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden.
In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln. Photo in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A, September 2008; March 2018 photo below of North Beach, looking left-to-right, looking north, HYDE Condominium, Etaru Japanese Robatayaki restaurant, and Hollywood Beach in the distance, with umbrellas.

When Your Blog Roll and Media List Has a Life of Its Own...

Because of some recurring problems I've been having
with Blogger.com the past week Hallandale Beach
Blog's Indispensible Blog Roll and Media List has,
of its own volition, decided to migrate towards the
middle of the front page from its side-pocket position.

Of hiding in plain sight, so to speak, perhaps to tempt
you to click some blog or website you've heard of
before but never seen for yourself, like the fabulous
WireImage.com, where I have both the main website,
webpage that directly connects you to all the
WireImage photos with a connection to Miami
and South Florida, usually but not always, at
-shocker!-South Beach.

Then there's IU grad Mark Cuban's always
fascinating Blog Maverick site.
(I highly recommend his recent post,
FireTrucks, the Internet and Life and Death

The great photos and topics at David Patrick
Columbia's New York Social Diary never
fail to satisfy -especially his insanely great photos
of New York after a big snow storm!-
always something worthwhile that strikes my
fancy and makes me think deeply at the blog
of defense and international
security author Thomas P.M. Barnett,
whom I first discovered years ago on C-SPAN,
and whose books are both prescient and amazing!

And you really can't consider yourself
well-informed about what's going on in
South Florida if you haven't read Miam's
own Eye on Miami before you leave
the house in the morning,
as it justly earned its rep as the most
consistently prescient and spot-on
blog in all of South Florida, even when
you disagree with them about a particular

There's something for everyone.

I'm trying to fix that logistics problem
but it may take a few days to unscramble,
so the blog may appear a little more
unwieldy in the interim.

Until then, to better read my daily posts
more clearly and without any bleeding
from other fields and graphics,
I suggest clicking the category header
marked Blog Archive, the third text
field down from the top.

Sorry about the confusion!

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy
Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio looks like, up close, plus the Amazon area of Brazil that Esther grew up near in Manaus, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������

A floresta Amazônica tem um papel fundamental no equilíbrio do clima na Terra e, portanto, na vida de cada um de nós. Nos últimos anos a proteção diminuiu e o desmatamento aumentou drasticamente. E o que já era ruim, pode ficar ainda pior. Se as medidas que o governo vem tomando não forem vetadas, nosso futuro estará ameaçado. Diga NÃO à diminuição da proteção da Floresta do Jamanxim! Diga NÃO à exploração de minério no coração da floresta! #TodosPelaAmazônia #342Amazonia #TodosPelaAmazonia Assine a petição: link na bio. ������✨���� The Amazon Rainforest plays a key role in balancing the climate on the Earth and therefore in each of our lives. In recent years, protection has decreased and deforestation has increased sharply. And what was already bad can get even worse. If the measures that the government has been taking are not vetoed, our future will be threatened. Say NO to the reduction of the Jamanxim Forest´s protection! Say NO to ore mining in the heart of the Forest! #togetherfortheAmazon
