[6-16-2009 Update Insert: Most of what is in this space is now moot. I found out what I was doing wrong and have reinstated Archives and Labels searches. They do work. However, in certain cases you may prefer Labels to Archives. Example: 1976 Today begins in November of 2006 and concludes in December of 2006, but there are other related posts in other months. Note: Labels only shows 20 posts at a time. There are 21 hubs, making 21 (which is for 1976 Today) an older hub.] ********************************* to my online poems and song lyrics using Archives. Use hubs for finding archival locations but do not link through them. Originally an AOL Journal, where the archive system was nothing like the system here, this blog was migrated from there to here in October of 2008. Today (Memorial/Veteran's Day, May 25, 2009) I discovered a glitch when trying to use a Blogger archive. Now, it may be template-related, but I am unable to return to S M or to the dashboard once I am in the Archives. Therefore, I've decided on this approach: a month-by-month post guide. The sw you see in the codes here stood for Salchert's Weblog when I began it in November of 2006. It later became Sprintedon Hollow. AOL provided what were called entry numbers, but they weren't consistent, and they didn't begin at the first cardinal number. That is why the numbers after "sw" came to be part of a post's code. ************** Here then is the month-by-month post guide: *2006* November: 00001 through 00046 - December: 00047 through 00056 -- *2007* January: 00057 through 00137 - February: 00138 through 00241 - March: 00242 through 00295 - April: 00296 through 00356 - May: 00357 through 00437 - June: 00438 through 00527 - July: 00528 though 00550 - August: 00551 through 00610 - September: 00611 through 00625 - October: 00626 through 00657 - November: 00658 through 00729 - December: 00730 through 00762 -- *2008* January: 00763 through 00791 - February: 00792 through 00826 - March: 00827 through 00849 - April: 00850 through 00872 - May: 00873 through 00907 - June: 00908 through 00931 - July: 00932 through 00955 - August: 00956 through 00993 - September 00994 through 01005 - October: 01006 through 01007 - November: 01008 through 01011 - December: 01012 through 01014 -- *2009* January: 01015 through 01021 - February: 01022 through 01028 - March: 01029 through 01033 - April: 01034 through 01036 - May: 01037 through 01044 - ******************************************************* 1976 Today: 2006/11 and 2006/12 -- Rooted Sky 2007: 2007/01/00063rsc -- Postures 2007: 2007/01/sw00137pc -- Sets: 2007/02/sw00215sgc -- Venturings: 2007/03/00216vc -- The Undulant Trees: 2007/03/00266utc -- This Day's Poem: 2007/03/00267tdpc -- Autobio: 2007/04/sw00316ac -- Fond du Lac: 2007/04/00339fdl -- Justan Tamarind: 2007/05/sw00366jtc -- Prayers in December: 2007/05/sw00393pindc -- June 2007: 2007/06/sw00440junec -- Seminary: 2007/07/sw00533semc -- Scatterings: 2008/08/00958sc ** Song Lyrics: 2008/02/sw00797slc ********** 2009-06-02: Have set S M to show 200 posts per page.

y2007 yd013 m01 w2 d6 Ice everywhere and more coming. An announcer on the radio I decided to unpack and try said there's an ice storm warning for tomorrow, with temp's in the low 20's. --- I had planned to move into this apartment (my sister and I decided I should take) on Monday, but when she heard about the bad weather coming, we moved fast and I was officially in here on the 10th. It cost me $50 more but--thank You, Lord--it was definitely a right decision. So far I have not had a serious electric outage. If one occurs, it will be quite chilly in here. This apartment is totally electric. --- Before the storm arrived, I had gotten my computer system set up, and I did attempt to make a connection, but the highspeed signal proved to be too weak to be useful.. So, I unplugged it, and called a local computer service, and then called AT&T and worked out a deal for SBC Global, which is the company I wanted to connect through even though it is partnered with Yahoo!, a company I mistakenly tried to use (for a second time) several months ago when I was still in Gainesville, Florida; and was the company (SBC Global, that is) the technician at the computer service strongly recommended. It appears that the 19th will be the earliest day I will be back up. --- I have been spending most of my time arranging my belongings here, and going through bags and boxes of them to find what I should move from the temporary warehouse livingroom to other rooms. I have gotten to a point where there isn't much more I can do/ without some furnishings and/or help from others. Propitiously, this apartment is about a mile from where most of my belongings were stored. My two Springfield-area nephews, my Springfield niece and her son and daughter, and my sister of course/ helped me move in. --- This January 2007 Springfield, Missouri, ice storm reminds me of the March 1976 ice storm in West Bend, Wisconsin, about which I wrote several sonnets.
