No, it is actually a piece of Berkshire dialect, referring to a young colt. Since colt means young anyway, the nobby bit seems a bit superfluous, but of course not all dialect has to make sense. The rhyme refers to going round the town of Woodstock, now known for the festival wristbands which started in the 60s, which is of course in neighbouring Oxfordshire. District 9: Rated R for bloody violence and pervasive language. 111 mins. Refugee aliens, the last of their kind, landed on Earth 30 years ago. Contained in South Africa"s District 9, the world fought about what to do with them. They have been turned over to Multi-National United, a corporation seeking to profit from learning how the alien"s weaponry works without regard for their well-being. Tension mounts when an MNU employee develops a virus that mutates his DNA. Now the most hunted and valuable man on the planet as his molecular structure may hold the secret MNU seeks, he must hide in District 9. Once your date has come to draw for the raffle, collect the boxes and take them home, do the drawing and contact the winner. Now that your drawing is over you have possibly hundreds of new leads for not only customers but recruits. For all of those who stated they would like more information on becoming a representative or getting their products at a discount, this is your opportunity to contact them and tell them all about the AVON opportunity.

Before making plans, decide whether you want to spend the weekend working, playing or relaxing. Do you plan to entertain educate or gather together sport wristbands with family and friends? As the event ended President Bush wished them luck, turned and left the room. As a rather close observer of these events, Mr. Bush"s ending tone was clearly one of regret. Surely there was some regret for the negative things that have happened, but the regret to which I refer was the result of the tone of the press. WHAT IS ON THE MENU? When it comes to menu planning I usually go with things that I can prepare ahead of time. This I learned the hard way. It is much easier to take something out of the freezer and throw it in the oven, so prepare ahead of time. I have had so many events where I was exhausted by the time guests arrived that I could not even eat the food that I had worked on all day. Now I plan it so that I have a shower and a nap before the first guest arrives at my house. It is not that hard with planning!

BEIJING - Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on Tuesday called for efforts in greening and prevention and control of forest fires, floods and droughts to ensure socio-economic growth and the building of an "ecological civilization."

Li made the remarks in a written instruction to a teleconference on national work in land greening and prevention and control of forest fires, floods and drought held in Beijing Tuesday.

He instructed governments at all levels to carry out solid work in greening as well as disaster prevention and control, which are pivotal for sustainable development and the security of lives and property.

Extensive land greening programs should be carried out to build a green shield, meeting the annual goal of adding 100 million mu (about 6.7 million hectares) of forests, Li said.

Work in forest fire prevention should be done in a scientific way, while strictly following procedures and preventive measures.

He also called for efforts to enhance preparation for flood and drought by improving water infrastructure and disaster prevention and control abilities.

Vice-Premier Hu Chunhua said at the meeting that green resources should be increased via multiple channels, including key forestry projects, and called for efforts to improve ecological protection and develop green industries.

Hu also called for intensified safety supervision and monitoring, urging improvements in emergency planning for disaster prevention and control.
