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. 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.

Hello Miami, London Calling: Season's greetings from London 2012 Olympics; David Beckham doesn't BEND, but shoots & scores anyway -blindfolded!

London 2012 video:  Season's greetings from London 2012 Olympic Games, December 21, 2011.  http://youtu.be/u_BR_bIF1HE

The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games, having been brought up "proper," sent us an informative email today just before lunch that includes salutations and greetings for a new year, along with the cute video above. 
That email, full of new aerial photos of the brand new Olympic Park venues that have been built in East London, can be seen here:

I hasten to add that I have some very sharp and talented friends in the London area who've
been hard-working volunteers from Day One, and I can tell you that they are VERY psyched!
219 days to go until the Summer Olympics of London.

Me in the Summer of 2016

Me in the Summer of 2016
Above, me in June, pre-recent haircut, near acres and acres of orange groves off Scenic U.S. #17 in Frostproof, FL, while visiting hot/humid Central Florida, which I'm convinced is where heat/humidity goes in the Summer to get away from it all... The oppressive heat & humidity there is literally everywhere you go. :-(
