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.

Let the critics chew over that! The best -EVER! October 2012 is THE best month ever at Hallandale Beach Blog with 35,346 individual pageviews - a daily average of 1,140 views; @MayorCooper, @SandersHB, @AlexLewy

My most-read blog post for the month is one from October 15th that really hit the spot for lots of very frustrated residents and small business-owners -news media members- in Hallandale Beach and environs, titled, "Ethics? Not for us! Follow-up to my post re Hallandale Beach's unethical "business as usual" attitude, with "special rules for special people" if they are named Joy Cooper, Bill Julian and Anthony A. Sanders; What ethics? What rules? @MayorCooper, @SandersHB"
That post is now one of the sixth most-read posts in the history of this blog and now stands at 
2024 individual pageviews... and counting.

It looked at not only the record of very bad judgment of Joy Cooper, Bill Julian and Anthony A. Sanders when it comes to ethics and how they've comported themselves in office and out, but their current campaigns, where they have kept the city's Code Compliance Dept. busy removing their illegally erected signs, including all the ones they and their supporters have put on city property/facilities far from the city's one-and-only Early Voting site.

The record is clear that regardless of the particular circumstances, over-and-over again, these three will say and do whatever they want, not what the state, county and city's own rules and laws prevent, and frankly, they don't much care what the Broward Inspector General or the Broward State's Attorney and their staffs think.
Yes, the former is calling the latter's bluff -and the latter is snoozing.

(To say nothing of their lack of positive achievements the WHOLE CITY can actually take pride in. A city budget that's nearly doubled in size in 6-8 years? No thanks!!!)

If you care about such things, the four most-popular browsers coming to the blog for October and their percentage: Chrome (32%), Internet Explorer (29%), Firefox (23%), Opera (7%)

I started keeping track of monthly statistics in summer of 2008, so I have no reliable numbers for the first year of the blog.
As much as I can recite sports stats or team rosters or political results or songs from 30 and 40 years ago, it never occurred to me at the time to keep track of the blog's stats that first year, though, in retrospect, I wish I had.

#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!✨ ������
