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.

And now for something completely different...

Last month, per a savvy head's up by a friend living over in Sussex -Pixie Lott's home territory don't you know, where the kids just plain love her to death- someone who's constantly chiding me for NOT posting some of the hours of original video I have recorded over the past year onto this blog and my YouTube page, I went to Vimeo http://vimeo.com/and checked out this interesting video for myself.

I meant to post it over the Halloween weekend, but like many good ideas I've had the past year, it was still in limbo in Blogger Draft, one of the updated Gates of Hell according to Dante's Divine Comedy, which I originally read in Henry Greenfield's AP English class my junior year at NMB HS. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Divine_Comedy


I spent some time last night after the topsy-turvy Eagles victory over the NY Football Giants and went thru some old Drafts I had trapped hovering between life and death, to see if there were still some things there worth salvaging, mostly due to timeliness.

Well, sad to say, some pretty good things I wrote on the local, county and state election campaigns bit the dust, but a few things emerged unscathed, and I hope to bring those to you before the end of they year, with updated insight and anecdotes.

One of the things I salvaged was this video, titled,
Are Animals by AU by Honest Directors.

This carnival scene in the video made me think of the fabulous Greek Festival held out out in a field in Glenview when I lived in the Evanston/Wilmette/Chicago area during the mid-1980's, where my friends and I would usually head out there after seeing a movie mid-Saturday afternoon, and then spend all evening eating and walking around with delicious smells all around us.

It was a real family scene yet was also great fun for us twenty-somethings, and far from anything I ever went to growing-up down here in South Florida, where the heat and sun takes its toll on even the best-planned events.
And the many, many good-looking Greek girls were an added bonus.
It was heavenly!

By the time we eventually got back to our car hours later, we felt so full and exhausted that we felt like going to sleep in the car and not heading back to Evanston or Wilmette.
I really miss that sort of Midwestern normality.

Speaking of Greek food, here's a free plug for Thira, the Greek restaurant just two blocks north of Hallandale Beach City Hall.
