“Diplomat” is a huge hotel and spa on the South Ocean Drive in Hollywood, Florida. Eastern side of it looks on the beach, western side – on the waterway.
Some evenings we enjoy coming on the “Diplomat’s landing”. We absorb beautiful views of the waterway, boats and the city beside the waterway. Then we turn our backs to the waterway and take in a view of the “Diplomat’s landing”.
There are two ways to go from the landing to “Diplomat”.
You can use an escalator (it’s on the picture above behind the fountain) and a bridge to cross the street or you can cross the street on the landing’s level.
Here is the escalator.
Below is a view of “Diplomat” and the crossing bridge from the western side of the South Ocean Drive.
Elections are coming. It’s a good time to share quotes about politics and politicians with new followers and guests.
My old friend sent me a message with quotes of famous people.
Some of these quotes are well-known.
Here are the quotes:
If we got one-tenth of what was promised to us in these State of the Union speeches, there wouldn’t be any inducement to go to heaven.
Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river.
When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President; I’m beginning to believe it.
Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other.
A politician is a fellow who will lay down your life for his country.
