This time I'm back for good - "My Blog Reboot", my new post in JungleG  http://goo.gl/yxErfs #blogging
For the third time in its history I’ve decided to relaunch my blog. This time around, I have a new approach that I think will allow me to work on it on a consistent basis. After all this time, I still firmly believe it’s important that we have independent voices and not let the major blog portals own all the conversation.

Se recomienda discreción por parte del youtubevidente.

Hablamos sobre "The Boy" como llaman en USA al dictador de Korea, kim jong un.

También analizamos como será el impacto en el mercado que tendrá el lanzamiento del Facebook Phone.

Y como cierrre, Nos metimos un poco en un sistema de moneda virtual que está dando mucho de qué hablar. El Bitcoin.

Eso sin contar que Javier no pudo estar presente en este episodio y con lo que hablamos de él, tal vez no vuelva.

Stay away from this place. We called to get a pizza delivered to the Sheraton Hotel. They sent the delivery to another building. They then sent a new pie on the house. Nice I thought. I've never had a pizza so salty in my life. We had prosciutto pieces larger than the slices and pepperoni that tasted like slices of pepper and salt. Additionally the cheese was not mozzarella. I'm still washing the salty taste from my mouth.

Artisanal pizzas that taste like heaven. The crust, the tomato base, the toppings are all amazing.

Been coming for years and they're always caring. My favorite is Dr. Poole but they're all good.

I bought a couple of Berliners (Venezuelans call them "Bombas") and they came without the cream inside. Was so disappointed! I also got ham "cachitos", and they were alright, but not great.

I definitely recommend them instead of going for the cheap guys like Bob's furniture. The showroom is excellent and the sales person (Pat) and they offer great financing.
