A Festival & Field Trip all rolled into one!

Once or twice a year I like to plan a field trip. They almost always involve music and a suitable road trip companion. This year, just as I was about to decide which date I wanted to field trip it up to Yoshi’s to see Dwele perform (again) I was alerted to the news that he would be stopping here in Fresno on his current tour. Because I’m mad skeptical by nature y’all know I had to investigate before I decided it was real. fake oakleys AND…it is indeed the real.

For the first time in five years I won’t be packin my bags and heading out of town on a field trip to see Dwele. Instead I’ll be dusting off my favorite tracks and opening for him at the African American Cultural Museum on Saturday April 18, 2015. That’s right, the fine folks behind the Fresno Jazz & Soul Festival asked yours truly to assist in  providing sounds throughout the event and of fake ray ban sunglasses course I said Yaaasss!

But I’m getting ahead of myself, I feel like I should break down how the event will flow & I tell you who the players are.

The last time Brady and Co. Were 8 0 was in 2007, and the Patriots wound up getting all the way to 18 http://cheapjerseysupply.com 0 before losing to Eli Manning’s Giants in the Super Bowl. Get comfortable with little T. Then you can expand it Cheap Football Jerseys to really start to move. Still, as winners always do, the Patriots reasserted themselves, effectively using screen passes against a tiring defence.

He is not Marshawn Lynch, but in that situation he is arguably as useful as Lynch would’ve been in the waning seconds of Super Bowl XLIX. To give Blount only one chance to get in from the 2 was a wasted opportunity that might’ve cost the Patriots the game.. Use multiplication to calculate a percentage of a number, such as when figuring a tip. Use addition and subtraction for calculating percentage increases or decreases, such as when figuring out markups or discounts.
