Bank of America was founded by Amadeo Giannini in 1904. Bank of America started out being called Bank Of Italy. Amadeo brought a bank in Italy and then changed the name of the bank to Bank of America. Amadeo provided services to immigrants that many traditional banks wouldn’t due to discrimination. In the San Francisco Fire of 1906 many banks were burned to the ground some how Amadeo moved all of the deposits out of his bank and within a few days he was back in business giving out loans. All the loans that Amadeo lent out during the fire were repaid. Once Branch Banking was allowed by California, Amadeo expanded Bank Of America to over 453 locations throughout the State of California from 1909 to 1929. Read about the History of Bank Of America.

Whether you agree with Cigarettes or not, there here to stay. Phillip Morris started Marlboro in 1924….as a Woman’s cigarette…then he wanted to go after the male advertiser market..he hired an advertising company, came up with a marketing campaign, using a cowboy, and his market share went from less than 1 percent to the 4th largest cigarette brand in the world. Pretty interesting…….The company also heavy sponsors racing events………History of Marlboro.

Hello all. Thanks for checking out this short film in advance. Its called “The Happy Hike” about some friends that go hiking and then run into a weird stranger on their path. Enjoy!
So we were booked by this lovely couple who wished to throw a flash mob graduation party for their son Dominic. So I frantically called around to get the right dancers and choreographers together. Some people that said they would be there flaked as usual, then others that were supposed to be at the performance decided they weren’t going to show up. But the show must go on. So the show when on and all fun was had by all who attended. One of the best choreographers that I have worked with Marcia. Marcia hands down stole the show with the kids dance moves that she choreographed and had them practice night and day so that the performance would be excellent. Hats off to Marcia and her friends and family who showed up and gave love and to everyone at the party as well. Thanks again.
Here’s some photos of the dance group. Marcia is in the back directly behind me in the middle of the pic.
