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.

Elaine de Valle's smart and knowing Miami-Dade-centric blog, Political Cortadito, has migrated from Blogger.com to WordPress. Check out the site that is the new Home Sweet Home for "Ladra"

Despite having written myself a few notes to mention it here, I hadn't gotten around to posting the news yet, but Elaine de Valle's smart and knowing Miami-Dade-centric blog, Political Cortadito, blessed with an especially strong intuition and nose-for news regarding the antics and hijinks in the City of Hialeah, has recently migrated from Blogger.com to WordPress
Check out the new site that is the new Home Sweet Home for "Ladra"

New website: www.politicalcortadito.com

And for those of you out there who still have Blogger.com blogs, like me, don't forget to change your RSS feeds to your Dashboard feature to the new one, or else you won't get Elaine's new posts, which now feature a new webpage design and style: 

But Elaine is still keeping that Gmail email address of hers in case you have a tip or two to share with her.

  1. Thank you Hallandale Beach Blogger...Ladra is blushing. I haven't been as diligent in getting it out there as I should have been. So I appreciate you shepherding any wayward political souls in the right direction. Keep up your good work. And bark loudly.

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

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 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!✨ ������
