[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.

The following is a comment I made 25nov07 on Silliman's Blog. It was an attempt to insert some levity into the comment stream because all the comments were responses to Ron's comment- control decision. Since what I tried to do did not work, today I suggested the removal of my comment. Will check later. Change of direction, I think. - Took the link ride to Gatza's PDF. I have read The Chinese Notebook. This is about the pot holder called "boppo": If said pot holder had a loop sewn near its opening, a loop through which one finger could be slipped, then--and this may be from childhood memories of mine, if one does not place one's hand into the pot holder, but does place one's index finger through the loop and one's thumb inside the pot holder and one's other 3 fingers of whichever hand one is using/ outside the pot holder, and whacks someone on the head with it, the pot holder instantly becomes a "boppo"--no? Silliman posted my levity and remove comment, and/// did not remove my original comment. So there you are. * AOL changed things again without even a note on Magic Smoke, and where they did have information it was insufficient. Besides, the feedback link takes one to an email connection which appears to be fine but causes an error message which voids attempts to use it. Users of products need instructions which are step-by-step/ simple and clear. How did I get here? I'm not going to tell you, but I did find a way. It is not a way, however, I prefer to take. - Got a response from Joseph at He suggested an alternative which is similar to the way I had found: bookmark http:// Also, the last comment at the time I was there is by some Steven. He obviously understands and uses much of what AOL provides, but he did say--which is true--the editors blog list needs to be updated. Even though I may never use most of what's available, his comment was interesting. - About getting back to this blog: I knew (as Joseph said) I had to go from the Main page to the Blogs page. I also knew about clicking on the update your blog link but that was getting me nowhere. In the upper right corner--which cannot be seen unless the page is widened--is a Sign In/Sign Out box. My screen name was showing Logged in. Now, if I have remembered this correctly, when I clicked on the update your blog link, I was taken back to the Main page/ where, when I clicked on the Blogs again, I was taken to my blog. I will need to try this circuitous routine again to make sure that is what I need to do. - Thank you. - Just checked the routine for getting to my blog. It is correct. One thing though: When I left here, I just clicked the x box in the upper right corner, which was the common way to leave. When I returned via Community / Journals, my screen name was still showing Logged in. My sense is that that now exists for security. Therefore, it appears that after I leave via the x box, I need to return to Community / Journals and Sign Out. - Well, my method for getting in stopped working. - Ended up placing a link to this journal in my Favorites. * Brian A.
