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, Europe 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. Pictured in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A; September 2008 photo by me, South Beach Hoosier. © 2013 Hallandale Beach Blog, All Rights Reserved.

ITV promo for Downton Abbey, Season Two
My last two blog posts filled with interesting videos and links about the wonderful Downton Abbey were both on September 19th, 2011, titled Quality writing & acting wins again!
Brilliant! Mary-Jess - Did I Make The Most of Loving You? ("Downton Abbey" theme); Mary-Jess Leaverland
Reminder: In the U.S., the first year of Downton Abbey re-airs on PBS beginning Sunday, December 18th at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/Pacific.
Season 2 of Downton Abbey premieres on PBS on Sunday January 8th, the second day of the NFL Wild Card Weekend, but the second game will be over by the time 9 p.m. rolls around.
PBS Masterpiece video: Downton Abbey: Surviving the Wait for Season Two. Masterpiece's Rebecca Eaton on how to survive until Downton Abbey season two premieres. http://video.pbs.org/video/2156589433
The new CD containing the soundtrack of Season 2 of Downton Abbey produced by John Lunn is at Amazon.co.uk., and this website has a selection of the 19 songs.
If you're in the U.S., I urge you to buy it via Amazoncom UK as an Import, even at $28.68 plus shipping, since according to Amazon's U.S. website, it won't officially be available in the U.S. until December 31st, which is pretty weird given how many people might wish to get it for the holidays. Not so smart marketing there!
And use the Amazon Currency Converter to prevent your bank from screwing you with additional fees.
