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.

Even Marie Serneholt, one of our favorites, played the role of garland-clad siren on the rocks of the lake yesterday, as these great photos from her blog at Swedish ELLE's website prove quite conclusively, down to the gold and blue ribbon on her left wrist:

In a word -heavenly!

I found out a few days after I got back from my trip to Stockholm in January that I missed running into Marie at Fotografiska, which is the crazy amazing and beautiful Museum of Photography, by only a few days.
To have been able to meet music dynamos like Anni Bernhard at the beginning of the trip, as I did, and Marie Serneholt at the end, as I could've, would have been perfect bookends in my book.

Here are some sweet photos that Matie snapped there that also appeared on her very popular blog: http://marie.elle.se/en-onsdag-pa-fotografiska/

Marie is also the new host of TV4's Bingolotto singing show.
Here's a recent interview on TV4's Nyhetsmorgon about the new gig and her having grown up watching the show like so many other people, but it's in Swedish.

As some of you who know me reasonable well already know, when I see her, I always think of American singer Mandy Moore, too, and how much I expected her to have a larger profile in the U.S. doing TV shows and variety things, just like Marie does now in Sweden.
