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

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.

#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!✨ ������
