SET THE DATE: The date of your event will depend on a couple of things. If it is a birthday or anniversary event wristbands then you are controlled by the date. If it is just a party the date may be controlled by the locations availability. If the event is at your home then you are in control. Pick what ever date you want. I have even gone as far as check with some guests a couple weeks in advance to make sure they are available on a certain date. I really like success! JazzFest begins on Friday, June 23rd, with Kansas City Jazz Vocalist of the Year, Ms. Ida McBeth"s performance at the Greenwood Cultural Center. Her concert begins at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and Jazz Hall members. WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO HAVE YOUR EVENT? Location is sport wristbands usually the area of the least control. Some locations require a reservation a year in advance, so you can not wait until the last minute. Researching locations 18 - 24 months in advance may help relieve a lot of stress early on. I you are having the party at your house then you just need to deal with the family. So weigh your odds early on! The festival also has arts and crafts, entertainment, and food vendors. Children will enjoy the carnival rides while the adults listen to the music. There will also be turtle races, a petting zoo, and much more! Admission is free. The rhyme does go into strange details about the horse, that most of it is made of hay or straw. Unless this is a metaphor for tangled hair it unlikely that this was a real horse, I should imagine... Maybe the rhyme came from a toy horse. The hay is described as "pounce" which I haven"t heard used as an adjective, and draw a blank.

BEIJING -- Chinese mainland has released new measures for implementing preferential policies for Taiwan compatriots, An Fengshan, spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, said Monday.

The new measures issued this month by North China"s Tianjin Municipality, East China"s Zhejiang Province, Central China"s Hubei Province and Kunshan City in East China"s Jiangsu Province, will make it easier for Taiwan compatriots in terms of employment, housing, investment, business, education for children and other fields.

Elementary and junior high school students from Taiwan in Tianjin will have equal rights with Tianjin citizens. Children of Taiwan compatriots who are employed or have investment in Zhejiang now enjoy equal rights with local students, up to junior high school.

Taiwan compatriots who have lived in Tianjin for a year have equal rights with Tianjin citizens in buying houses and obtaining a mortgage. Preferential policies on buying houses are also detailed in measures of Hubei and Kunshan.

Taiwan entrepreneurs in Hubei can enjoy financial support, tax cuts and professional training and have access to more than 130 vocational qualification examinations.

Taiwan-funded companies in Zhejiang enjoy the same policies with private companies and foreign companies. Taiwan compatriots who intern or work for companies in Zhejiang or who start their own businesses have equal access to subsidies or guarantee loans.

Kunshan provides preferential policies to Taiwan-funded e-commerce companies, supports Taiwan-funded companies to take part in international expositions, and encourages mainland"s State-owned companies to purchase cultural and sports products and services from Taiwan.

Taiwan-funded enterprises can invest in services for the aged in Tianjin and they enjoy power, water, natural gas and heating prices for local residents and preferential treatment in terms of taxes, among others.
