Tips For Staying Clean And Dry At A Music Festival Looking for a unique musical experience this summer? Be sure to check out the Rock Dog Music Festival on Saturday, July 11th, 2009. The Rock Dog Music Festival will take place at 9000 Cardwell in Livonia, Michigan (zip code 48150). There are many keyboard shortcuts in Windows Vista that helps speed up common tasks.

Opting for a pity party on the couch with a month"s supply of potato chips because you missed working out this week? Or because you gained a few pounds? Really? Get up! Do something! Even if it"s 10 squats (or deep knee bends, if "squats" sounds like too much work), do something. March in place. Move your spine. Put a little Elvis in that pelvis. Smile. You"re getting better now. Carry on. When hosting a Swap Party, be sure to briefly explain in the invitation what it is and what type of items are to be brought. Also be sure to explain that all items must be or look new, and be in good condition. Each person may take home with them the same number of items as they bring. According to a federal court lawsuit this Tuesday, Taylor Swift was sued after a concert back in August 2012 at the Capital Hoedown festival wristbands. After the festival show was canceled, the "Never Ever Getting Back Together" singer reportedly kept her major paycheck of $2.5M. The lawsuit adds that the blonde starlet failed to reschedule her concert appearance as well, leading Taylor Swift to breach her contract in that regard as well. My first sales were at TAMUCC at a small open art festival event wristbands. Very low-key but sold all my little ink drawings and cards I created for 5 bucks a pop I was stoked... being a poor college woman. Word of mouth is effective and I have enhanced this with having professional business cards to help with referrals. There is a special "Holiday Wishes" fireworks show and our family favorite "Mickey"s Once Upon a Christmastime" parade, which are both spectacular. The only time you will be able to see these shows are during the Christmas Party and between the extremely busy and extremely expensive Christmas week. That week between Christmas and New Years is the busiest of the year for the Magic Kingdom, and often closes due to capacity not long after opening in the morning! One other thing: the early bird gets the worm. The WMS has a history of selling out, and prices go up considerably on festival day, anyhow-so be sure to get your wristbands early. Currently, festival wristbands are available for only $20, with VIP passes available for $75. The wristbands are good for any venue, all day. Even without knowing the specific lineup of locals, $20 to see all of them means you"ll definitely get your money"s worth.

"Request to take off."

"Approved."

And with that, three J-10 fighter jets take off instantly.

This was my first chance to see the Chinese August 1st or Bayi aerobatics team, and as first impressions go, the huge sound wave produced by the new domestic developed J-10 fighter jet is a spectacular one.

It is hard not to be impressed by the team, and their impressive role of honor, but I was more interested in getting to know the individual team members, rather than the badge, and to hear their stories and dreams.

The first person in the team I got to know was Jing Fei, chief of No.1 brigade. "You speak very good English," I told him, as it is noticeable how they use Aviation English in daily training, which is not common in the Chinese air force.

"I have read professional aviation English for many years," he laughed. "Now the Bayi aerobatics team"s daily training is bilingual but aviation English remains important to us since we have had many international performances since 2013."

Can we do this interview in English then, I joked with him. But one detail I noticed in their dormitory was interesting and shows how they practice aviation English. On the right side of the dormitory door, there is a small white board where every day the pilots write an aviation English sentence, so that as they go in and out of the room, they are always being reminded of the language.

China"s Bayi aerobatics team is now a well-regarded part of the international aerobatics industry. In 2013, they made their first appearance in Russia at the Moscow Air Show and two years later they went to the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition in Malaysia.

In 2017, they performed at the Dubai Air Show, before another appearance in Russia one year later, and their most recent international engagement was in Islamabad for Pakistan"s national day parade.

Everyone in the team was excited to share memories of when they perform abroad, and to talk about the maneuvers they perform, but to be honest I was not the greatest audience for this. What did strike me, however, was when the captain of the Bayi team said how, on their visit to Pakistan, he noticed the state of readiness of the Pakistan Air Force, and the atmosphere of combat. He said it made him realize he was lucky to be born in China, a peaceful country, where even military personnel are not close to real war.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People"s Republic of China. Where has our happiness come from in recent years? We may complain about the inequality of healthcare resources. We may complain about our salary. We may complain about air quality – but we have time to complain about these things because we live in a peaceful land. We don"t need to worry about wars. We have a peaceful environment to work hard and chase our dreams.

Actually, I do have one question: why do we need an aerobatics team in the Chinese Air Force at all? The answer comes out on my second night at the base. At eight o"clock, pilots are preparing for a night flight. Obviously, aerobatics performance flights never take place at night, but they are practicing to maintain their skill as a combat force. When preparing for their performance flights, the pilots are easygoing and lighthearted but for night flights, the atmosphere changed a lot. Everybody knows how serious combat flight is. Now they are ready to fight against the enemy and safeguard of our sky.

The Bayi aerobatics team is definitely showing people the combat capabilities of Chinese Air force. They are not only performers – they are also Chinese soldiers safeguarding peace for all the people in the world.
