Sport - Daytona 500 Fragarance - The Scent Of Racing Sports News

The Daytona 500, which is commonly referred to as the Super Bowl of NASCAR, is held each year in February. Drawing hundreds of thousands of fans each year, with even more watching at home on television, the Daytona 500 is racing’s most anticipated event. The sports news media agrees with large press attendance and pre-event weekend coverage. It serves as the season opener for the new racing season, but now it serves as so much more. While sports news continuously surrounds the annual Daytona 500, it is now focused on a new men’s fragrance of the same name.

Elizabeth Arden, which is the #2 American perfume creator, will begin offering the “Daytona 500" men’s fragrance beginning in April 2006. In addition to being found at participating retailers, the Daytona 500 fragrance is expected to be readily available online. Elizabeth Arden believes that the scent “embodies the confidence, power and intensity of the men daring enough to race in the ultimate adrenaline rush.” And what a rush it is. The Daytona 500 is arguably the most exciting race of the year and is widely published in sports news publications, as well as sports news programs.

Jeff Gordon, four-time Cup champion and defending Daytona 500 victor, already promotes another product in the Elizabeth Arden fragrance line. Halston, which is also a men’s fragrance, is promoted by Jeff Gordon, who serves as product spokesman. When Gordon signed on as a representative in February 2005, Elizabeth Arden claimed that their sales increased by 30-40% from previous sales. It is this relationship that creates the preexisting association between Elizabeth Arden and NASCAR.

With the release of the Daytona 500" fragrance, sports news will once again be swirling around the sport. But, by April, with the Daytona 500 competition long since past, the new Daytona 500 sports news will come in the form of a men’s fragrance. With this being the first racing-related fragrance, it is only fitting that it would be named after the first regular NASCAR sanctioned event. During it’s earliest days, racing at the beach in Daytona quickly became the base for which the sanctioning body of NASCAR was born.

Sports news is found everywhere from the internet to the television and printed publication. If it happens in NASCAR and the Daytona 500, it is sure to be covered. At the same time, any product that references both is sure to be a sports news magnet.

Sports - Broadway Set For Record Year In 2006

You can experience the crisp and emotional songs of musicals, the beauty of design elements and the excitement of a character coming to life before your eyes. New York City's Theatre District is known for its world-class performances. Broadway is New York's top entertainment draw. This year, the Great White Way continues to showcase the popular favorites from 2005, while several new plays are also slated to open.

Continuing on from 2005 into 2006

At the Majestic Theatre, Phantom of the Opera continues to break attendance and ticket sales records. The show arrived on Broadway on January 26, 1988. On January 9th, 2006, the musical became the longest running play in the history of Broadway with its 7, 486th performance. Phantom won several Tony awards, including best musical, best performance by a lead actor (Michael Crawford as the Phantom) and best performance by a featured actress in a musical (Judy Kaye as the opera diva Carlotta Giudicelli). Additional Tony’s were awarded for lighting, scenic and costume design.

At the St. James Theatre, The Producers opened in 2005 and continues to enjoy sold out performances. The Producers has won more Tony awards than any other show on Broadway. This Mel Brooks musical is about a Broadway producer and an accountant who convince various elderly women to invest in a Broadway show. They over capitalize the show, taking in more money than they can ever payback even if it was to become a hit. They produce a musical that they are sure will never make it past opening night and make plans to take off with the money. Their "best laid plans" go awry. The Producers will run through 2006 and will continue to delight ticket buyers.

The Color Purple opened at the Broadway Theatre on December 1, 2005, and has been sold out every night since. This production has been said to stir the soul. The Color Purple grosses about 2 million dollars a week in current and advanced sales. It is considered to be one of the top 5 revenue producing musicals on the boards. Some predict that in 2006, The Color Purple may top all current musicals in ticket sales.

Other plays that broke records are Beauty and the Beast, Doubt, Jersey Boys and The Lion King. Beauty and the Beast , at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, set a record in sales of $1,229,825 and is the 6th longest running show of all time. Doubt broke records for the Walter Kerr Theatre. This play has won both Tony and Pulitzer Prizes. Jersey Boys at the August Wilson Theatre continues to be considered Broadway’s freshest and newest musical. The Lion King, another Tony winner, will be moving to the Minskoff Theatre in June 2006. This play’s record sales breaking momentum is sure to continue.

Coming in 2006

Mary Poppins, the extremely popular 1964 Walt Disney film, has made its way to Broadway. Performances will begin in October or November of 2006 at the New Amsterdam Theatre. Mary Poppins has had a tremendous run in London and will no doubt become very popular in New York.

The Wedding Singer will open on April 27, 2006 at the Al Hirshfeld Theatre. This musical is based on a very popular movie, which focuses on a man named Robbie Hart who sings in a band that performs at weddings. His desire to find the girl of his dreams comes at one of his wedding gigs when he meets an enchanting young woman. They become friends but she is engaged to another man. If the Broadway play is as close in popularity as the movie, tickets will be difficult to obtain.

Tarzan, another popular movie, is set to open on Broadway during the month of March. It is the story of a boy raised in the wild by animals; it was first a novel written by Englishman Edgar Rice Burroughs. The popularity of Tarzan in literary or film form.

On March 12, 2006, Ring of Fire, a musical tribute to country legend Johnny Cash, opens at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. This year Walk the Line, a movie about Cash, won several Golden Globes. If it can hold the boards, this play has the potential to bring innumerable country music fans into the Barrymore.

Broadway’s success in 2005 has rolled over into 2006. As many as 30 new shows are slated to come to Broadway in 2006. Some will be huge hits and many more will close in less than a week. Is the next Phantom of the Opera waiting in the wings? Only time will tell.

Backpacks - Planning Your Camping Trip

When it comes to planning your camping trip, you may feel overwhelmed with how much you will have to do in advance. However, you can do your planning fairly easily by using some simple strategies.

The main things to consider are; what equipment you would like to buy, finding a campground that suits your needs, deciding on what activities you and your fellow travelers would enjoy doing, and staying within a reasonable budget. These should be discussed and completed before you go on the camping trip.

Deciding how to camp is your first decision. You might want to think about the kind of lifestyle you would like on your trip.

For instance, people with families prefer to rent an RV because they can fit six people comfortably and can be moved easily. With kitchen, bathroom, and storage space for luggage, families will be more comfortable and will be able to enjoy their camping vacation without having to deal with bugs, pitching tents, and building fires unless they want to.

But, if you want to experience the great outdoors by pitching a tent, and building a fire, you can do so by purchasing a tent that is large enough for you, your family, and all of your stuff. This is a more direct way of experiencing nature and can open up a whole new experience for you and your family.

There are a variety of tents for you to choose from. Tents that have separate rooms and screened porches are available. These tents are easy to assemble and take care of. Many can be set up with just a few, simply sets, regardless of their size. If you are traveling with your family or friends, everyone can help and make it quicker and more fun for all.

Cabins are another option if you do not want to pitch a tent and you don't want to stay in an RV, you will be able to rent a cabin and have all the comforts of home while enjoying nature. Usually set along lakes or mountains, you will be able to get the peace and quiet you want without having to build a fire outside.

One of the important things to remember,is to be sure that everyone that is going on the camping vacaton, will be involved in some manner in your planning, so your choices can be suitable for all, and help to make your camping trip one of the best ever!

Vacation Florida Orlando Disney Family Fun Sun Beach - Staying In Florida?

Staying in Florida can cost a fortune. When staying there, you can choose to stay in an expensive hotel complete with Jacuzzis and pools or stay in a simple yet clean house and cut your expense in half. A fruitful family vacation in Florida should not be that expensive. It will be good if you can still save while having a worthwhile time.

Renting a house instead of staying in a grand hotel can be affordable for the family and thus save you a lot of money. Renting can be stressful when not planned well. Choosing where to stay should be proper to avoid some added work such as house cleaning. I am presenting here some guidelines before renting a house in Florida. This information will help you and your family in your stay there:

1.You may have friends or acquaintances in Florida. Having contacts can be beneficial for your search of house for rents. Your friends can give you ideas of the rental expenses. They can also endorse you to some of their known friends who own rental houses. You can also ask for price quotes to assess and calculate the costs your family may incur.

2.Your budget is the prime concern here. If you are in a tight budget, consider a simple house which can accommodate all the members of the family and that which will provide the comfort after a whole day of trip. The house don't necessarily mean very big; just spacious enough for the whole family.

The prices of rents will also vary during the lean months of January to March or the peak month of December. You may want to go during lean months when tourists' arrival is not that heavy. Rental fees vary from $763 to $1,149. Try to negotiate to lower the rental fees.

3.Choosing an apartment should be strategic to those places you plan to visit. You do not want to waste half of the day just to travel towards the beach you sought for. Whether you plan to tour the Florida, an accessible house can be an energy booster in a day's exploration.

You may also consider living in a lovely community where you can have a glimpse of Florida's beach while enjoying a sip of coffee and delicious breakfast.

4.Before renting a house, examine it and see to it that the house is clean. Keep in mind that a dirty house will not be clean by the landlord unless it is agreed upon. Messy rooms can stressed you out when all you seek for is relaxation and peace of mind.

Be sure that the house offers all amenities such as washer, dryer, a full kitchen or if possible, a television and DVD set. Examine if water is continuously available and faucets do not leak. You should be out of worries when renting, since you are paying, you should get a good deal here.

5.Your family's safety and health are also at hand in choosing a house. If any of the members have allergies to dust mites or animal furs, you should choose a community where there are minimal or no pets roaming around.

6.There are shortages of rental houses in Central Florida and other areas, so might as well make reservations as early as possible. Search for certain homes in an area by accessing available sites. Rentclicks and are examples of websites which cater to those who want to rent and place reservations earlier. Rentclicks have a tracking map as location finder so you will have a good look of the place you want to stay in.

7.There are beautiful villa houses with affordable prices. You can try these houses and enjoy the exclusivity of the place. The villa owners offer a country style of living for those groups seeking for private moments with their family.

There are beautiful Florida houses available for rent and you can't even distinguished the differences of staying in other apartments or condominiums. The key in choosing a good house is examination and proper negotiation. Instead of just staying on the first house you will visit, you should search for many houses and compare. The vast selection can bring you endless features; just be sure that all your needs can be met.
