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.

Day-long Memorial ceremonies and concert for victims of Oslo and Utöya were dignified and respectful, sweet and beautifully-produced by NRK-TV, under overcast skies that produced no rain drops but some obvious tear drops; Bruce Springsteen and Little Steven surprise crowd with appearance and performance of "We Shall Overcome"; #Oslo, #Utöya, #Norge




Concert opened with Tine Thing Helseth on trumpet playing Mitt lille land

The day-long Memorial ceremonies and concert for victims of Oslo and Utöya were dignified and respectful, sweet and beautifully-produced by NRK-TV, which I watched via SVT Play, and came under overcast skies that produced no rain drops, but some obvious tear drops at times.

Bruce Springsteen and Little Steven surprised the crowd outside Oslo City Hall with an appearance and sang "We Shall Overcome" in the last third of 90-minute concert that started off just right and never had a false note.

More on this on later...

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 2016
