‘Specks of Gold, Hidden Treasures’ – Screening and Presentation in San Francisco – Flor de Miel Media

It was an exciting day at the San Francisco Mint on March 04, 2017. What a great turn-out, over 6200 people walked through the historic Mint halls and restored public rooms where miners and savvy businessmen alike traveled to exchange their gold for newly minted dollars and coins. Today, The Mint serves the City for private and public events, and is slated to be converted for a more consistent use.

I have just watched the first episode of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthoney’s new reality television program, Q’Viva The Chosen, bringing together 27 professional performers, singers, and dancers from all over Latin America to compete for a spectacular extravaganza show in Las Vegas as finale. ‘The largest Latin talent showcase the world has ever seen!,’ says the announcer during the opening montage.

Glorious 2012

There is so much talk about 2012. 2012 has long been on my mind. Well, since about 1999, to be exact.
