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.

How do you solve a problem named Gwyneth Paltrow? Colette Martin of Forbes.com has a warning for the multi-talented eager beaver: Cut it out!

Gwyneth Paltrow interview - Parkinson - BBC

How do you solve a problem named Gwyneth Paltrow?
Somebody has just had it up to here with Blythe Danner's Oscar-winning daughter, who's taken DIY to pretty amazing lengths.

And the backlash has begun, as Colette Martin of Forbes.com has a stern (tongue-in-cheek) warning for the multi-talented eager beaver: Cut it out! You're making other American women look bad in comparison.

An Open Letter to Gwyneth Paltrow
By Colette Martin, July 4, 2011 - 4:12 pm

Dear Gwyneth,

Imagine my surprise when I received the June issue of Bon Appetit, and instead of a strawberry rhubarb pie or a luscious summer salad, your face was staring back at me, offering me a bite of spaghetti. The magazine called you “food’s newest face” and described you as a cookbook author.

Gwyneth Paltrow & Huey Lewis - Cruisin' (from Duets, 2000, directed by Bruce Paltrow)


Monday afternoon for about the tenth time, I saw Blythe Danner in 1776 airing on Turner Classic Movies, a film based on the Tony Award-winning play. She plays Thomas Jefferson's (Ken Howard) wife who has come to Philadelphia at the secret behest of John Adams (William Daniels) in order to prevent Jefferson from leaving for Virginia to be with her, after he has been tasked with drafting what turns out to be the Declaration of Independence, even as there is no assurance that the majority of the delegates to the Constitutional Convention WILL vote for independence.

The natural conflict of the film is the same as it was 235 years ago, and is fought with great wit, sarcasm and outright personal animosity as the elected delegates debate whether or not the 13 British colonies should declare their independence from Great Britain, or stand pat, even while
Gen. Washington and his out-manned, ragtag Continental Army are fleeing New York City as the British Army under Gen. Howe invade.

The British intention
: conquering and dividing, in this case, to march thru New York and then finally cut New England off from the rest of the colonies and any supplies, and then, finally wipe-out the colonial rebels once and for all.

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 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 looks like, up close, here's yet another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

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