Speaking Engagement Calender Updates!

I had three very successful and fun speaking engagements in November that kept me busy.  On the 9th I spoke to the West Grove RAP GROUP (Retired Active People).  I was treated to a nice lunch, then gave a presentation to about 80 people, followed by a book signing.  Many thanks to Peg Cook for inviting me to speak with such a wonderful group of people!

On November 20th I spent the morning at the Centreville School in Centreville, DE.  Marcia Szelewski, the school librarian had read the article in the News Journal and invited me to come and speak to both the middle school and upper school students.  She did a VERY successful presale of the books and read most of the first book during library with the students.  They were so attentive and had so many wonderful questions - I could have stayed all day!  Coincidently, one of the teachers I met turned out to be the cousin of Bill Rotko! (the screenwriter who has optioned my books) SMALL WORLD!  Thank you Marcia, and all the Centreville School family for such a warm welcome!

This past Tuesday, November 27th, I visited the life skills class at DELCASTLE HIGH SCHOOL here in Delaware.  This was an amazing group of students!  They have been reading FLY LITTLE BIRD, FLY! in class, going over each chapter carefully to make sure everyone fully understands what is going on in the story.  They really enjoyed hearing Oliver speak on the tapes about what it was like to ride the orphan train.  A second portion of the tape that I played for them was Oliver telling what it was like when he was sleeping in the Sod House and the rats dug through the walls and were crawling on his bed!  The teacher, Mrs. Lehm, will be using BEYOND THE ORPHAN TRAIN in the class after Christmas and lots of the students purchased the second book for themselves.  It was a great day in a very welcoming classroom!  Thanks so much to teacher Kathy Lehm for having me come in!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Thanks

Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

May I just say what a relief to find a person that truly understands what they're talking about over the internet. You definitely realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people must read this and understand this side of your story. It's surprising you are not more popular since you most certainly have the gift.

I think what you posted was actually very reasonable.
However, consider this, suppose you added a little content? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a title that makes people desire more? I mean ORPHANTRAINBOOK.com BLOG is a little vanilla. You ought to peek at Yahoo's home page and see how they create news titles to grab viewers to open the links.
You might add a related video or a picture or two to get readers excited about everything've got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.

My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Peгsonally, I found your Ƅlog entry quite interesting.
If you deⅼve further into thiѕ topic in later weƅlog posts, that would wonderful.
Aⅽtually, you could move into gгeatеr analysis and
focus on eacһ sսb-topic. It's amazing how
different it can be when ɑn writer considers a topic in а well researched and іmpartialunbiased way.
My own focus can be wellness topics, computer progгamming and AI, yoga exercise аnd deep
breаthing and meditatіon, and vegаn eating. I understand many judge severely whеn I say
that I'm vegan, which can be boring. For me, it's about kindness, and
еаting ԝhat wօrks for me, personally. You can't tell my ideas or anything eⅼse by my diet. https://twitter.com/njmobilemassage

What I genuinely think most about is wellbeing matters.
On my own, I signed up for newspapers that concerns this subject matter, and I continue to keep educated about the most recent health research.

How is this relevant? Personally I think there is no more critical focus for my hours.
Likewise, this blog page entry seems as though it's worthy of the time to check
out again. I dig through 1000s or more of blogs weekly.
Truth be told, my backbone constantly is painful and I desire a brand-new spare time interest.
lol In any case, I think if almost everyone published about their
niche in existence, and did so articulately, we'd have a much more interesting planet. http://cerenzanegra.altervista.org/Massage_School_8494587

What I literally think most about is health matters.

By myself, I subscribe to magazines oriented toward this subject matter, and I keep up
to date about the latest health research. In what way is this important?
I feel there is no more significant concentration for my hours.
Furthermore, this web log seems as if it's worth my time to read.
I sift through tons or even more of blogs weekly. Truth be told, my spine always is uncomfortable and I
desire a fresh new spare time interest. lol Anyhow, I think if almost everyone wrote
about their unique time in the world, and did so clearly, we'd have a much more cool Earth. http://siobhan.Clayton@hu.feng.ku.angn.i.ub.i...u.k37@Sea.Hitaker1997@www.ba.tt.le9.578@jxd.1.4.7m.nb.v.3.6.9.cx.z.951.4@Ex.p.lo.si.v.edhq.g@silvia.woodw.o.r.t.h@r.eces.si.v.e.x.G.z@leanna.Langton@www.yanezpaz.com/en/node/22/track
