Attend Music Festivals In A Smart Way Founded in 1987 in Bellingham, Washington long before Grunge was even a word, their came a small indie group, with tremendous staying power called The Posies.
Spend some time in the great outdoors. Camping, hiking, cycling, running, ziplining or floating on the river are all great ways to enjoy an action-filled outdoor weekend. JON AUER: I spent a couple of weeks in Minneapolis making a record with a band called The Melismatics who I think are fantastic. Beyond the music, they also inspired me with their work ethic with was superlative. I also just played with a band while I was recently in Singapore called Typewriter who I had a great time with. We played together, some of my songs, some of theirs, kind of a musical cultural exchange at a big festival wristbands there. Next, figure out how you are going to do ticket sales. The venue may have a box office and a ticketing system already in place, but most don"t. There are several websites that are made just for handling online ticket sales for indie concerts, or you may want to contact a company that specializes in event wristbands. You can even do a combination of both. Whichever method you choose, you need to keep careful track of tickets sales so you don"t exceed capacity at the venue. Once you"ve got these details nailed down you can focus on marketing and putting on your best show ever. Holding a raffle is also a great way to get new recruits. Simply offer a gift basket, full size item or even a gift certificate. On the raffle entry form provide a place for their name address phone number and whether or not they have an AVON Representative and if they would like more information on receiving their items at a discount and if they would like more information on becoming an AVON Representative for sport wristbands only We can all picture the scene - arriving at a camp site to find that the toilet facilities look like something out of a horror film. Disgusting and clearly not to the standards of hygiene that we would set for ourselves, there is little that could be less appealing.

TOKYO - The Cabinet of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Friday approved a bill to allow Emperor Akihito to abdicate the Chrysanthemum throne and hand his duties over to Crown Prince Naruhito.

Akihito"s abdication would mark the first time a Japanese emperor has abdicated the throne in around 200 years.

In terms of timing for Emperor Akihito"s abdication, the government has been considering December 2018, as the possible timing for the move, as this is when the emperor will turn 85 years old.

The nation"s era name (gengo), informed sources said, which lasts for as long as the emperor is on the throne, will possibly change at the beginning of 2019.

The abdication bill was written with just the current emperor in mind, as the government does not want to set a precedent for future emperors abdicating.

The bill will be submitted to the Diet later on Friday, with the government expecting it to come into effect by the end of the current Diet session in mid-June.

Last August, Emperor Akihito made a rare public televised address during which he suggested he wanted to step down because his advancing age and weakening health were making it difficult for him to carry out his official duties to the best of his ability.
