    Re: difference between since and from

    Since (an adverb)refers to:

    - a definite past time until now: She has stayed there ever since.
    - before the present time : He has been long since dead.
    - after a time in the past : He has since become rich.

    Remember, it requires a present perfect.

    As to from(a preposition),it's used as a function word to indicate a starting point of a physical movement or a starting point in measuring or in a statement of limits (I came here from the city; a week from today and so on).

    They are NOT interchangeable!
