in my imagination, because I had crossed that bridge on foot so many  
times, I had
Diana/driver/et al. crossing the bridge before entering the freeway/ 
expressway/fast road
along the Seine, but in truth I only knew they were close to the bridge.

auto-switching.  you just answered a longstanding question of mine.

did you appear on TV?    and that would mean, over the air, analog,  
TV?   so those who tune into our spectrum, galactically, will be able  
to see it in

To me, an enginner is "one who engins, or makes use of gin to gain an
advantage, such as is done often on northern Long Island estates, at
bridge parties ..."
