[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.

yd014 m01 w2 d7 AM 8:44 The second wave of the ice storm has passed. The third wave--which will be the worst in that it is expected we will get 1/2 inch more of ice and then sleet mixed with snow accumulating to 5 inches, and then below-freezing temp's for the rest of the week-- is due to arrive later today (Sunday) and to continue into Monday. Early this morning this building was without electricity for approximately 105 minutes. I decided to turn the heat off. About AM 3:32 the electricity came back on. I set the heat near 55. AM 8:55 It is presently set at 62. Similar to "my" heatpump system back in Gainesville, FL, the electric furnace here heats to about 4 degrees above what it is set at. --- Yesterday I turned my computer on and let Zone Alarm do its weekly scan. During that period of time I called Tom Montag and spoke with him for some while. I told him, among numerous other things, about the storm here. I also gave him my new address and my cell phone number, and told him I'd set up a deal with SBC Global for highspeed Internet service and that I should be getting equipment from them by Friday the 19th but that I had a feeling the bad weather might delay that. --- I did contact my sister, but have ever since been concerned about their decision to use the gas stove for heat at their place, but I am unable to get back to them. I suspect the call towers have been frozen dead. --- Before the storm, she brought over several items (along with the remainder of my food), one of which is a fancy screwdriver. Since then I have found my small hammer, my 1/4-inch foot-long screwdriver, my wire nippers, and my pliers I had been using in my mo-ho in G'ville for removing the caps from too- tightly-secured bottles of water. --- A longer electric outage may be in the offing. --- On the day I moved in I purchased a bed frame and a twin box spring and mattress, and an oak book-shelf-with-light headboard at Springfield's Mattress Outlet. My two nephews set it all up for me after one of them had brought it to this apartment complex in his pickup. Yesterday I found a good use for the box the bed frame had come in, placing it (though not quite all of it), after I had flattened it out, on the rug floor in the bedroom's closet. I did need to use a section of the plastic which had been wrapped around either the mattress or the box spring in order to cover the entire length of that closet. I then put items in there and closed the closet's folding doors. --- It is bright outside but solidly overcast. In spite of all the ice, birds are about. I've seen what appeared to be warblers. Earlier I heard a crow. --- Finally no more "Call failed" messages. I accessed a voicemail from my eldest sister, sent a voicemail back, and then called her. She is now, I am pleased to say, at Ronald's house. She told me to call our sister in Mobile. I told her I would, and that I had tried to earlier, but that that call also failed. I called my youngest sister immediately. We conversed a good while, mostly about the day I arrived here, at apartment 12. Brian A. J. Salchert
