Rhodingeedaddee is my node blog. See my other blogs and recent posts.


[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.

10 As It Happens - When it rains quietly, nearby above is a metal thing upon which the rain's sounds seem like a tune being played on a distant marimba. This morning I found possible words for the chorus of that tune: Whoooole an-nd gentle Is the only way I need you; the only way I want you.. ~ Pulling the left edge of the drape in my living room back/ to ostensibly check the sky, which moments ago was ridge cloudy, my eyes fixed on the staunch bush I had taken several photographs of when ice sheathed it: scintillant ice when the sun shone. This day it is pushing forth light green leaves and white blossoms. ~ Yesterday I slid into my docs space and cleaned up Usta Mari, and then printed both it and The Forty-One Days of Kim. Not sure I'll be posting them today in Venturings, but I may. ~ In The Best American Poetry 2006: Billy Collins, Editor | David Lehman, Series Editor is "Toward Some Bright Moment", a poem by Stephen Dobyns which centers on experience, reflection, empathy, regret, and self-knowledge. In my inner self, I applauded Stephen, and thanked him. ~ Mutt Object - "Dog On" Matching mongrels merrily marching mountainous miles ~ Much of this afternoon, as dark rolls of clouds coursed from northwest to southeast, rain with thunder & lightning and/or thunder & lightning and/or thunder coursed with them. So, after unplugging my computer system a second time, I moved my surge protector, monitor, cpu, and keyboard/mouse/modem/phone table to locations I am more comfortable with. I sit on a medical stool three feet from my monitor. I also changed how the keyboard and mouse wires connected to the cpu, and how the cord for the surge protector ran to the wall socket I plug it into. - It has become my habit when thunder grumbles/ to turn my computer off if I am using it. [ Partly because it is programmed to turn itself offwhen I am away from it for ten minutes, I do not leave it on unless I return to it in less than seven minutes to make afew key strokes so it "knows" I do not intend to shut downyet. ] If I hear thunder grumbles more than one time, I shut this system down, unplug the phone/highspeed jack, turn off the surge protector, and unplug the protector's cord. I would unplug the protector's cord before turning the protector off, but I have sometimes noted sparks from sockets in this place when I was unplugging a cord. Paranoia? Some sometimes. Brian A. J.
