Mount Trashmore got a classy makeover.
Apparently the producers of the new Tom Cruise/Russell Brand flick Rock of Ages had a little trouble figuring out how to turn South Florida into the iconic scenery of Los Angeles.

Their solution was to put a "Hollywood" sign on a landfill. Yes, a landfill.
Apparently nothing says "Welcome to Florida" like a mountain of trash.

The Monarch Hill Renewable Energy Park between Coconut Creek and Deerfield Beach is the site of the classy makeover. Thankfully Waste Management had some foresight to do good by the town, as the Sun Sentinel reported, and will turn the location fee into scholarships for four graduating seniors at Monarch High School.

We just got back from a romantic little mini vacation.  We stayed at a couples only resort in Fort Lauderdale on 501 ORTON AVE.  The Seagate 2, at the Lorelei!  A great clothing optional alternative lifestyle vacation.  It was close to the beach and all the shops and there were no single men lurking around.  Just hot couples, nude sunbathing and nude swimming.  Just an overall fantastic nudist vacation in our own back yard in south florida!
