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.

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!”

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. :-(
