Byblos, Beiteddine, Baalbeck oh my!

Everyone and their mother is talking about the three upcoming summer music festivals..Byblos, Beiteddine, and Baalbeck..so I thought that I might as well jump on the bandwagon!

So far, from what I’ve been hearing, it seems that people are most excited about the following acts:

Pink Martini on July 3rd at the Beiteddine Festival

Gorillaz on July 20th at the Byblos International Festival..Umm why is Gorillaz on a random Tuesday BTW?!? That sucks..I really wanted to spend the night in Byblos..and not have to worry about work the next day!  Blah!

And because none of these are taking place at the Baalbeck festival, and because I have yet to see Baalbeck, I might just go watch The Ballet Performance of Anna Karenina on July 24th..yes, it’s true..I might willingly go to the ballet! Just look at her..Pretty incredible!

  7. Another consolidate bills consequence is with your credit.

    This payment will likely be divvied up among lenders.
    If you’re paying a 29% interest rate now, say, and you can be assured you will be able to skip payments, but the requirements regarding it vary widely.
