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.

The question of the day at BFM TV's website, http://www.bfmtv.com/
Mondial de rugby : le XV de France a-t-il une chance de battre les All Blacks?
This was BFM TV's last rugby-related video of Saturday, taken at l’Hotel de Ville de Paris.
Oui, since I mentioned her among other Gallic super-talents j'adore, I went 'old school' up at the top of the blog by posting an older clip of Elodie singing "Et maintenant" on Star Academy seven years ago, the year she won by virtue of her deep emotional connection to TV viewers. They love her!
"Et maintenant" was a song I once knew backwards-and-forwards when I was the top French student at NMB Senior High in the late '70's, and we'd often hear that song on certain Fridays as sung by the immortal Gilbert Bécaud.
That happened when my great teacher, Pearl Chiari, decided that we all needed a change of pace, and needed some genuine French culture and musical immersion while we took turns reading Pearl's collection of Paris Match and Le Point instead of simply using our ALM text books.
It was positively shocking to me once I got to Bloomington and came to realize how very little of consequence the other smart students in my French classes at IU -from all over the country- actually knew regarding French life, culture, politics or traditions -good and bad- much less, how little they knew about how and why the French think and act the sometimes peculiar way they seem to -again, good and bad- at least from an American or British p.o.v.
My insight came from the best French teacher there was -Pearl.
If DVD technology and the Internet had existed then, Pearl's easy manner and charm would've helped her make a fortune selling DVDs and teaching people how to speak French.

France has all this, let New Zealand have something to celebrate!
