Leaving shortly for a videotaped interview at Barnes & Noble (which will be available on their website...  And yesterday I did one at Time for Kids, the junior version of Time Magazine, and that will be on THEIR website...they use kid reporters, mine a charming 11-year-old named Sarah)  Then tonight I go out to long Island to speak at a teachers' conference before heading home tomorrow.

Here is a truly New York Moment:

Yesterday, on arriving, my hotel room wasn't ready yet so I went out for a walk.  When I encountered a drugstore I remembered that I needed dental floss so headed inside but was stopped at the door by a 25-ish African American man wearing a Yankees sweatshirt, who asked me for money by saying, "I'm from Afghanistan."

I declined politely and went in the store, but as I looked for the dental floss department I was thinking about him. From Afghanistan?  Why no accent, then?  And he didn't look Afghani.  Well, might he have meant that he had been in Afghanistan with the military?  Made more sense.  And if that were true, I certainly wished him well, although I still wasn't inclined to give him money.

I paid for my stuff and headed out of the store, and there he was again, again asking for money, and again I shook my head no and said, "Sorry." His reply: "Well, God bless you anyway, cheap bitch!"

Two anonymous emails this morning through the website, one telling me to rot in hell, and the other that The Giver should be burned.  So I have had altogether too many bad vibes sent my way in the past 24 hours. But the sun is shining and it feels like spring! So it is hard even to be irritated.

Five pages, I am impressed. I try for two and don't always make it...
I read somewhere that some author--I want to say Hemingway, but am not sure that's right--used to end their writing day mid-sentence, so that starting the next day would be easier.
Sometimes I use that trick. --Linda Sue

the main components of this all kinds of sensor are the emitter, detector and the Retro-reflector Nagano keiki Pressure sensor . The emitter and the detector are in abs speed sensor the same package. The Retro-reflector is placed little far from the sensor. The light from the emitter is reflected off the Retro-reflector and detected by mazda 6 suction control valve . When the target passes between the suction control valve and Speed Sensor the Retro-reflector the beam is not reflected back to Pressure Sensor . Here the problem can be that the beam could reflect from the target itself. For this the polarising filter is used in the sensor. Pressure Switch
