I want to store events in a database with scheduling info which could be a fixed date or a recurring date such as:
1. every Monday
2. the first Wednesday of every month
3. the first and last Tuesday of every month
4. every day between 1/3/11 and 6/7/11

And I may also need to store exceptions, e.g. every Monday except 13 June 2011.

What's the best way to store this in a database?
