Summer Festival Preview I like to visit with my friends and I like to cook and when I put these two things together it is called a party. I have never thought of myself as an event planner but I do love to plan parties at my home and I have become quite efficient at it. Trust me I am no Martha Stewart and lets face it most of us are not. The important thing is do what you love. If you want a theme party do it, and if you want an intimate dinner then have at it. You are in the driver"s seat. The important piece is to plan. Never be afraid of too much planning but do not let the planning take away the fun. Stay flexible. Head to the beach. Many families say good-bye to summer by spending Labor Day weekend at Virginia Beach. The Verizon Wireless American festival wristbands will entertain people of all ages with oceanfront concerts, food and fun. "It was a really big thing for me," says Brad Warner, director of the punk documentary film "Cleveland"s Screaming." His documentary offers a glimpse into the fire that burned inside members of the Cleveland and Akron punk scenes.
BEIJING -- A Chinese mainland spokesperson on Monday denounced Taiwan"s recent move to obstruct a mainland delegation"s participation in an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meeting.
Three members of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade traveled to Taiwan on July 17 to attend a forum on digital innovation held by the APEC Business Advisory Council, said An Fengshan, spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council.
However, the delegation was unable to participate in the forum due to deliberate obstruction by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration, said the spokesperson.
"The DPP administration disregarded APEC practices and rudely blocked the mainland delegation from entering the meeting. Meanwhile, they confused right with wrong and released false information," An said. "We resolutely oppose and strongly condemn such actions."
