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.

WSJ's Scott McCartney reasonably asks "Will Turkey Day Fliers Cry Foul?"; now taking nominations for Hallandale Beach Blog's "Turkeys of the Year"

Just a reminder, I'm now beginning to take your nominations for the prestigious Hallandale Beach Blog Turkeys of the Year, in which the turkeys in our community get their due recognition.
Drop me a line with the name of the individual(s) and a short description of what they have done this past year to be worthy, at hallandalebeachblog-at-gmail.com.

How can you not love a turkey with a Pilgrim hat?

Will Turkey Day Fliers Cry Foul?

By Scott McCartney
November 18, 2010

Full-body scanners, now deployed in 68 airports, and more-thorough pat-downs have some fliers concerned about their privacy and the airlines worried about delays.

Airlines will have extra staff, spare airplanes and plentiful plastic bags for shipping car seats. Airports will have executives working as greeters, gifts in Los Angeles for restless kids in long lines, and people with big yellow clipboards in Boston acting as roving information booths.

Yet even with most elaborate preparations for the crowded Thanksgiving travel rush, which starts this weekend, the lowdown is that the pat-downs could sour some family feasts.

Speaking of feeling like a turkey at Thanksgiving...

Billy makes a phone call he'll always regret. (The clip above is how this episode from Season Two ended.)

Billy, trust me, it's never going to work out with you and Allison!

And if you ever meet a very good-looking woman by the name of Brooke Armstrong -RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!

#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 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 way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

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