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.

Next Wednesday, the 2003 British political thriller mini-series 'State of Play" begins airing on BBC America; watch 'Page Eight' online until Tuesday


BBC America video: Dramaville Presents STATE OF PLAY Launch Trailer, http://youtu.be/67QZy4lLuCs

Speaking of the often messy, ego-driven, class-driven nexus of contemporary British politics and news media, as I was in my last blog post... I've heard lots of great things about this mini-series over the years but I've never seen it for myself.
The first episode of State of Play airs Wednesday at 10 p.m. Eastern, DirecTV Channel 264.

Bill Nighy, who stars in the mini-series as a newspaper editor, was EXCELLENT as an MI5 operative playing alongside his curious neighbor, longtime HBB favorite Rachel Weisz, in the David Hare-directed BBC thriller, "Page Eight," which ran on PBS' Masterpiece Contemporary early last month.


Lots of people I know all over the country say that was one of the best things they've seen all year on TV the past year, along with Downton Abbey, of course.

*You can also STILL watch Page Eight online for free at the PBS website until December 6th.
It's one hour and 44 minutes long -and remember to hit full screen -fullskärm.

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

Thumbs up! What a night we had! #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!✨ ������
