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.

TV's most-magical shows -and HBB faves- are back to delight us! :) - Fifth and final season of SyFy's "Merlin" premieres tonight at 10 p.m. Eastern, while "Once Upon A Time" returns to ABC-TV on Sunday at 8 p.m. Eastern

"I feel the weight of my destiny crushing me." 
Yes, I know what you mean. I've been feeling the same way, too. 
It's a terrible thing to know that you have a great destiny, yet find yourself, more often than not,  toiling amongst the mundane and banal instead of the world of true significance and import you know that you were meant for.

Hmm-m... I hereby propose a contest, Katie McGrath (Morgana) vs. Lana Parrilla (Regina Mills/Evil Queen) for the title of Sexiest & Most-moxie-filled fairy tale character on TV.
The winner faces Jennifer Morrison (Emma Swan).
Hello must-see TV! 

And seriously, where has Miranda Raison been all my life? 
I mean besides in England, of course? 

I'd watched her in MI5 (Spooks) as Jo Portman, of course, but hadn't seen the Merlin episode she was in until today, "The Sword in the Stone." http://merlin.wikia.com/wiki/Miranda_Raison
Wow, she really looks good out of the espionage bureaucratic office and in leather -and with a sword!

You know, he said somewhat mischievously, not everyone can carry that off with such panache!

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 atop Mount Corcovado 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 in Rio looks like, up close, plus the Amazon area of Brazil that Esther grew up near in Manaus, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

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

A floresta Amazônica tem um papel fundamental no equilíbrio do clima na Terra e, portanto, na vida de cada um de nós. Nos últimos anos a proteção diminuiu e o desmatamento aumentou drasticamente. E o que já era ruim, pode ficar ainda pior. Se as medidas que o governo vem tomando não forem vetadas, nosso futuro estará ameaçado. Diga NÃO à diminuição da proteção da Floresta do Jamanxim! Diga NÃO à exploração de minério no coração da floresta! #TodosPelaAmazônia #342Amazonia #TodosPelaAmazonia Assine a petição: link na bio. ������✨���� The Amazon Rainforest plays a key role in balancing the climate on the Earth and therefore in each of our lives. In recent years, protection has decreased and deforestation has increased sharply. And what was already bad can get even worse. If the measures that the government has been taking are not vetoed, our future will be threatened. Say NO to the reduction of the Jamanxim Forest´s protection! Say NO to ore mining in the heart of the Forest! #togetherfortheAmazon
