Roller coaster ride

Wheeeeeee

Whoooooosh

Up and down

I can't wait to go on the roller coaster!

It starts off slow

The wheels barely turning

And chugs up that first steep hill

It pauses at the very crest until

Whoooosh

Down it swoops

And leaves your tummy at the top!

But it doesn't stop there

It's still speeding on - around and around

In screeching circles

Oh will it never stop?

A quiet stretch

On the straight and getting ready

Loop the loop is next!

Shriek and scream

Upside down!!!!! And then the right way up!

One last gentle corner and the car comes to a halt.

I'll have no voice left from all that screaming

My heart will beat like a drum

But I can't wait to ride on the roller coaster!

Yay! it's the holidays.

" I'm so glad we're on holiday," said Greg. " I'm going to ride my bike every day."

" I'm going to stay with my gran," said Luke.

" I don't like going away. I miss my friends. When are you going?" said Greg.

" Only on Monday. So we can still play together this weekend. Did you see that there is a fun fair at the high school? My mom says she will take us."

" Great!" Greg shouted. " I'll ask my mom right away."

That afternoon the two boys went to the funfair.

"I want to go on the Dodgem cars first." Greg was very excited.

" Right, " said Luke. "Then I want to go on that thing with spider arms."

" What's that called?" asked Greg.

" I don't know, but it looks fun!"

The boys had a wonderful time. They went on the Roaring Rocket, the Octopus, the Whirly Girly and the giant Ferris Wheel. They went to the game stalls. They shot balloons and threw balls at targets. They ate popcorn and ice cream. At last, Luke's mom said that she had spent all her money and they set off for home.

That night Luke and Greg were so tired that they fell asleep straight after supper!

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
