KEN STRINGFELLOW: I don"t know if things were missing from other records, that"s a bit harsh, but I think we were just ready to prove some things and very inspired on this album.
In short you need sport wristbands a group of staff members who are going to share your vision for your event. You will need an assistant or someone to deal with all the minor details while you"re proceeding at full steam, looking at the big picture.
For a chance to participate in some good-old-fashioned fun, join the revelry at the Frontier Days Festival. Visitors can enjoy seeing the period clothing and eating period food. The festival also features a carnival, children"s games, and some very unique contests. No Frontier Day festival would be complete without a greased pig catch and nail-driving contest. There will also be several quilts for view, as well as a parade on Saturday.
Off Broadway is one of the few St. Louis music venues that attracts indie rock and punk bands that are up and coming, but that aren"t completely obscure. A perfect example is the brand new psychedelic folk group Here We Go Magic, which played a beautiful set at Off Broadway a couple weeks ago. The band had stopped in St. Louis on it"s way to the festival wristbands, where they played a ton of shows that got pretty impressive reviews. And the gun slingin", whiskey guzzlin" indie rockers Murder By Death are scheduled to play at Off Broadway in May - it"s bound to be a more appropriate atmosphere than if the group performed at the Pageant to the tune of $5 Budweisers.
Mickey"s very Merry Christmas Party is a great way for you and your family to have a unique experience in Walt Disney World while celebrating Christmas. The park is open only to those guests who purchase the party tickets. There is a bit of a jam entering the park since it is only open 7pm-12am, but you can enter as early as 4pm with your party tickets to avoid the rush. We received event wristbands upon entering the two times my family attended the party and then the entire Magic Kingdom is open for your enjoyment. If you are going for the rides then you will luck out because there is no wait for majority of the rides once the party begins depending on the date of your party. At any date, your wait should not exceed 15 minutes for any given ride.
KEN STRINGFELLOW: I have to say, I"m more turned on by the sun, or peeling paint on an old tractor, or a beautiful smile than most bands...I try and look at life as a whole for my inspiration, and work from there.
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.
TOKYO - A Japanese court approved prosecutors" request on Sunday to keep Nissan"s former chairman Carlos Ghosn in detention for another 10 days.
The Tokyo District Court said that the approval is for prosecutors to investigate further his third allegation of breach of trust for causing Nissan a loss of 1.8 billion yen ($16 million) in 2008.
Sunday"s extension allows prosecutors to keep Ghosn at the Tokyo detention house until New Year"s Day.
Ghosn and another executive Greg Kelly were arrested on Nov 19 and charged with underreporting Ghosn"s income for 2011-2015 by about 5 billion yen. Other charges for additional underreporting of Ghosn"s pay by about 4 billion yen are pending.
The latest allegation filed on Friday only applies to Ghosn and came a day after the court rejected prosecutors" request for a longer detention of Ghosn and Kelly. Kelly"s bail request filed by his lawyer on Friday is still pending and could come sometime after Christmas.
Prosecutors allege that Ghosn in 2008 transferred a private investment loss worth more than 1.8 billion yen to Nissan by manipulating an unspecified "swap" contract. Ghosn also profited by having the automaker transfer a total of $14.7 million to another company to benefit himself and that company"s owner, who helped in the deal, prosecutors said. Japan"s NHK public television said the company owner is a Saudi Arabian acquaintance of Ghosn who provided credit guarantee of several billion yen.
Ghosn, according to his lawyer Motonari Ohtsuru who visited him at the detention center earlier on Sunday, denied the allegation, saying he did not cause any damage to Nissan, NHK reported. The lawyer quoted Ghosn as saying that his Saudi Arabian friend contributed significantly to Nissan"s sales promotion, including lobbying for the royal Saudi family, and that the payment was for his work for Nissan, not Ghosn"s thank-you money for his private investment.
The arrest of an industry icon has triggered international attention. Prosecutors have been criticized for separating the same allegation of violating the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act as a tactic to detain Ghosn and Kelly longer. They say Ghosn and Kelly are flight risks. No trial date has been set.
The additional 10-day detention imposes meeting restrictions, according to the court. Ghosn is allowed to see nobody else but his lawyers and embassy officials because of his "rearrested" status in the new allegation under Japanese code of criminal procedure.
