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.

March 2012 was another good month for us here at Hallandale Beach Blog.
In fact, it was our seventh-busiest month ever in five years.
(Earlier I said second but I misread it.) 
With some positive -and long overdue- changes soon appearing here that will offer readers even more original content and options to become even better-informed, I fully expect that those numbers will continue to grow.


Number of individual page views: 19,167.
Most-read day was March 27th with 925 individual page views.


The single most-read blog post for March 2012, with 385 individually-recorded page views, was actually my May 8, 2011 post about talented artist Christer Lindarw, a.k.a. "After Dark" and his appearance on a very clever and hip Children's TV show on SVT last Spring:
"Only in Sweden, my friends! Drag act 'After Dark,' Timoteij, et al perform on dynamic kids show 'Den Flygande Mattan'; Nothing like it in U.S.!"

Speaking of that popular blog post and Sara Edwardssonthe brilliant creator and host of Den Flygande Mattan, she recently wrote on her website that as of now, SVT doesn't have
plans for a sequel to The Flying Carpet show, but, "men man vet aldrig…"  
(You never know...)


The multi-talented Sara has been busy touring Sweden since last Fall performing with Amy Diamond and Nassim Al Fakir in concerts that largely feature skits and children's songs, some of which are found on Sara's new album that dropped in early March called, Kom, vi sjunger barnkammarboken!”

#HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang w/Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/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

Perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, out of what seems like the tens of thousands that I've actually seen, despite the fact that you can't actually see her truly amazing smile or dazzling beauty. But trust me, you know that it's there! An even more amazing photo when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to just get to this particular spot. At Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. ��
