Woodstock 50th Anniversary Weekend!

Bethel Woods ready for party 50 years in making!: Woodstock’s  golden anniversary will be marked by four consecutive nights of events, beginning Thursday, at The Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, which sits on the original festival site. Officials are expecting upwards of 100,000 visitors to Bethel for the weekend, and travel restrictions will be in place for anyone who does not have a ticket to the shows.
The weekend will begin with a free performance from Arlo Guthrie and a screening of the Academy Award-winning Woodstock documentary on the famed festival field Thursday. Ringo Starr and Carlos Santana will be headlining shows on Friday and Saturday, respectively, at the Bethel Woods’ 16,0000-capacity pavilion before John Fogerty (co-founded Creedence Clearwater Revival in 1967) headlines the Sunday show.

Amazon / Kindle Help: When I bought my trusty old Kindle, shortly after they launched, I had to get it from Amazon.com. I couldn’t order it from Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.es had not been born then. It has now started to misbehave.
Now, apparently, if I want a new one, I will have to order from Amazon.es. My query is, will I only be offered books in Spanish? I was lead to believe that all my existing books would transfer if I bought a new model… but surely not if they are on a dot com account. Has anybody else come across this problem and how do you get round it?

Bottle Caps Recycling Info: Most people have wondered whether the plastic bottle caps gathered at collection points in offices and schools do indeed have an economic value. The answer is yes. A Malaga-based company buys and recycles plastic bottle caps gathered from skips and collection points and all funds go towards social causes.
In the REPLASUR office on the Santa Teresa industrial estate, they regularly purchase plastic caps gathered from collection points, rubbish bins and skips. Funds go towards social causes and families who struggle economically. Because of this, the company only purchases caps from people or entities with an accredited social cause.  Source Link
