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.

Traffic Alert for Tuesday April 10th in Hollywood & Hallandale Beach area - President Obama will be at The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa at 3 pm

Tuesday, April 10, 2012 3:00 PM
Obama Victory Fund 2012 - Dinner with President Barack Obama at The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa 
3555 South Ocean Drive, Hollywood, FL 33019

Above, looking north on the Intracoastal Waterway from next to the Hallandale Beach Walmart. Tallest buildings are, left-to-right/north-to-south, on the east side of State Road A1A: Trump Hollywood,  The Ocean Palms, Diplomat Oceanfront Residences and The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa. April 8, 2012 photo by South Beach Hoosier.

Trust me, you don't want to be stuck in one of the RK Plaza strip center parking lots on Hallandale Beach Blvd. because of Secret Service/FHP/HBPD & HPD traffic shutdown for the motorcade for Vice President Biden like I was last year, trapped over near the Post Office for about a half-hour after mailing something to the nieces up in Maryland.
I thought Biden was supposed to be in Coral Gables or Miami Beach, but no...

Of course, when you live in the Washington, D.C. area, and don't have nearly the same gawker effect on pedestrians or drivers,  the motorcades seem to move a lot faster, esp. the ones at night leaving The White House up 17th Street, N.W. or from the State Department.

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. :-(
