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.

Ending the Season 5 finale of "Mad Men" with Nancy Sinatra singing "You Only Live Twice" was sheer genius!; #YOLT;

Ending the Season 5 finale of "Mad Men" with Nancy Sinatra singing "You Only Live Twice" was sheer genius!; #YOLT

You know why that's so if you know about Don Draper's true identity.

Title sequence of "You Only Live Twice" with Nancy Sinatra singing title song.
The iconic song was composed by John Barry and Leslie Bricusse. 

Earlier in the episode in what is now 1967, Don Draper goes to a Manhattan movie theater to see a matinee performance of the the new 007 spoof, "Casino Royale," starring Peter SellersDavid Niven Orson Welles, Ursula Andress and Woody Allen.
On an island of millions, whom do you think Don finds already sitting there in the theater by her lonesome as the film's score is playing, when she ought to be in her office at her new job at another advertising agency working on the women's cigarette account she was just assigned?
Yes, none other than Don Draper protégé Peggy Olson.

Casino Royale (1967) - opening credits. Music composed by Burt Bachrach, performed by Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass. 

That film is also known for the Oscar Best Song-nominee, The Look of Love by Burt Bachrach and Hal David, sung by Dusty Springfield in the film.

It lost to Talk to the Animals from Doctor Dolittle, which was composed by -wait for it
You Only Live Twice co-composer Leslie Bricusse

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 now-closed 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. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's yet another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������
