I CREATED this interesting news article on Denny's Super Bowl XLIII free and egg-cellent 'Grand Slam Breakfast'. I am Philippines Judge Florentino Floro, having registered with Wikinews on December 3, 2008, and is a Wikinews:Editor as of January 12, 2009.

In having written more than "62 articles" (here - User:Florentino Floro/MyList and in Wikipedia Encyclopedia User:Florentino Floro/MyList2), I live with my Philosophy and hope to elevate Wikinwews to the phenomenal success of Wikipedia encyclopedia, by writing very comprehensive, detailed and fully synthesized news, amid collaboration of editors and the final touch of the reviewer. Please do not be annoyed if sometimes, (due to stress and human factor - plus the fact that as lawyer and judge, I never ever had enrolled in any journalism subject), I would tend to relax the copyright rules and style guide, but, without however, violating the SPIRIT AND INTENT of both international law of copyright, and Wikinews rules on style guide. REST ASSURED, that in writing every news article, I VALUE fairness, justice, integrity and honesty. This is what NEWS WRITING is all about. Please help in publishing this news. Cheers.--Florentino Floro (talk) 09:56, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Big investment on ads $ 3m[edit]

Give me some more 3 hours to finish this.[8] I am waiting for the facts, since this is a big story. It is not just about free 8 hours of meal, but the $ 3m +++ invested to catch a part of McDo's success. Today, I saw on Channel News Asia that McDo will put 175 outlets in Asia or Japan. Denny's is not cheap it is hearty but 6$ Now, here in Philippines, because of giant Jollibee, McDo is not even breaking even. It is dying. --Florentino Floro (talk) 08:14, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
