ANNUAL "EGG OF THE SUN" MANGO AUCTION SETS NEW RECORD ...

To Keep this in perspective, these are very expensive hothouse mangoes that normally sell for $100.00 each. This extraordinary price was the result of a special auction.

Por primera vez en 15 años vimos una cadena con gusto .


El dialogo gobierno-oposición tuvo rating.







1. Maduro se pego 45 minutos tratando de parir ideas y recordando al “Comandante”. Lloriqueo por los coquitos que recibió Roque y Winston pero jamas reconoció que lleva sobre sus hombros 41 muertos.







2. Jorge Arreaza como maestro de ceremonia mostro su inigualable “chispa y carisma”. La contienda duro 6 horas. Comieron maní y tomaron agua.
