Shameless Self-Promotion (Mostly, Anyway)

A very short piece – and I mean really short, as in only a page long - of mine will appear in Louisiana in Words, a book coming out from Pelican Publishing in the spring.

Not too long ago Pelican put out a submission call for the book, looking for writers to describe the real Louisiana, minute by minute. The book will collect them together, giving people a snapshot of a day in the life of Louisiana. They specifically asked for some stuff not set in New Orleans and not about the hurricanes, and believe it or not I managed to come up with something, and I recently heard mine got accepted. I have to say I’m quite excited and proud to be in the book, not just to be included but also because of the company I’ll be keeping.

Also accepted was Kelly Wilson, my friend and office-mate from Loyola, as well as John Biguenet, also from Loyola and author of the books The Torturer’s Apprentice and Oyster. There are some other heavy hitters in there, too, like Andrei Codrescu, as well as other friends of mine from New Orleans, Charles Cannon, Joe Longo and Sarah Inman, but the one I’m actually most excited about is Linda Rigamer. See, I gave the call for submissions to my Intro. to Creative Writing class as an assignment and encouraged them to submit; Linda did, and she got accepted, and that’s just really cool. If you want to see the full list of authors, go here.

The book should be out in the spring sometime, at which point I will remind everyone about it again, here and in emails and phone calls and possibly by running around for Mardi Gras wearing nothing but my page like a fig leaf. Here’s hoping the book isn’t pocket-sized.

Wow. She's a student? That's fabulous! Well done.

I got your comment. This is my first trip since It Happened. I was there five times in the sixteen months before, but not since. It took all I could muster to keep him there and get his brother through his senior year at UNCW. I am so excited.

Anyway, hearty congrats. Enjoy your summer. I'll be checking in. I'll let you know if we're going to be out and about. I check soph_mom@yahoo.com regularly. :)

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.

To be a adroit lenient being is to from a make of openness to the in the seventh heaven, an ability to guardianship undeterminable things beyond your own pilot, that can govern you to be shattered in very exceptionally circumstances pro which you were not to blame.

The organization delivers one [url=http://www.hotdeal.vn/ho-chi-minh/thoi-trang-nu_594/]mua chung gia re[/url] for every single working working day in each and every of the marketplaces it serves. The Groupon features as an assurance agreement using ThePoint's technique: if a specified quantity of folks indicator up for the provide, then the deal becomes provided to all if the predetermined minimum is not satisfied, no a single distinct receives the offer that day. This decreases danger for suppliers, who can just take treatment of the coupon codes as sum low cost costs as efficiently as earnings marketing devices. Groupon tends to make revenue by maintaining about fifty % the cash flow the shopper pays for the coupon.

For illustration, an $eighty massage could be obtained by the buyer for $forty via Groupon, and then Groupon and the retailer would split up the $forty. That is, the retailer offers a massage valued at $eighty and gets around $twenty from Groupon for it (under a fifty%/fifty% break up). Or, if $240 well worth of residence portray providers is acquired by the consumer for $fifty by means of Groupon, then the company gets $twenty five and Groupon retains $20 5. The purchaser will get the therapeutic massage, or the home portray support, in these illustrations, from the retailer for which they originally paid out $40 (or $50) to Groupon. There are specific organizations to which Groupon to start with did not source its vendors, including capturing ranges and strip golfing gear even so, shooting ranges have been showcased on Groupon.

Not like classified marketing, the merchant does not spend out any upfront price to participate: Groupon collects personal details from all set buyers and then contacts only men and women customers, mostly by working day-to-day e-mail, who might possibly be intrigued in a distinct product or provider.

Groupon employs a large amount of copywriters who draft descriptions for the provides showcased by e mail and on the internet web site. Groupon's marketing textual content for the 'deals' has been seen as a contributing facet to the reputation of the internet site, featuring a distinctive mix of thorough easy simple fact-inspecting and witty humor.

Owing to Groupon's business acquiring primarily composed of woman consumers, the deals are normally concentrated on the properly becoming, actual physical physical fitness and elegance marketplaces.

There are most likely issues with the company design. For instance, a lucrative offer could temporarily swamp a modest business with also many consumers, jeopardizing a likelihood that consumers will be dissatisfied, or that there won't be ample merchandise to meet up with up with the want. Gap, a massive apparel retailer, was capable to manage 445,000 low cost discount coupons in a nationwide deal (regardless of the truth that it seasoned server concerns at a solitary level), but a smaller sized business could develop to be all of a sudden flooded with customers. A single espresso store in Portland, Oregon struggled with an enhance in buyers for three months, when it offered in close proximity to to one,000 Groupons on the one particular distinct working day it was presented, in accordance to a single distinct report. In reaction to comparable problems, Groupon officers issue that 'deal' subscriptions need to be capped in progress to a reasonably priced quantity.
