[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.

On this President Lincoln's Day, which is also the seventh day of Lent, the radio station I was listening to/ played John Lennon's "Imagine"; and here in Missouri's Springfield ice and cold and the flu rule. Over 5000 are presently without power, and just as in January of 2007/ tree limbs have snapped. Temps today will remain below freezing, and though the storm has traveled east, whatever mists occur about will freeze. Took several photos through my window. Not sure about venturing outside with my camera. Yesterday around 4:40 PM this system's broadband connection to AOL disappeared. So I unplugged it again, spent the rest of the day reading and fantasizing, and did not try to return to this realm until after 9 AM. It is now 10:19 AM. - What I read first were the "Be Grateful" through "I Feel Your Pain" selections in Make Room for LIFE!, a Daily Meditations, Actions, & Prayers booklet for Lent 2008 published by Twenty Third 23rd Publications / Copyright ©2007 Joseph Sica. A priest friend sent this booklet to me. I then went back to reading The Prelude and rereading "Preface to Lyrical Ballads"--had read it years ago--but did not read the whole of it as that was when I fell into fantasizing. Did, however, gain some new insights. One was: "The Poet writes under one restriction only, namely, that of the necessity of giving immediate pleasure to a human Being possessed of that information which may be expected from him, not as a lwyer, a physician, a mariner, an astronomer or a natural philosopher, but as a Man." p. 420 The Selected Poetry and Prose of Wordsworth a Signet Classic 451-CJ854 New American Library Copyright © 1970 by Geoffrey H. Hartman, editor The Signet Classic Poetry Series General Editor: John Hollander Library of Congress Catalog Card Number: 74-126353 2 PM Another event involved the respected Nebraska poet and short story writer, William Kloefkorn. In 1972, after Doug Flaherty had passed Road Apple Review and Road Runner Press to Terry Smith and me, one special issue we pleasurably published was Alvin Turner as Farmer, William's first book of poems, a work which included 8 pen and ink sketches by Bill Evans, a friend and colleague. Logan House Press, which I e-mailed just before I began this event note, has since republished that book and has published Kloefkorn's first book of short stories. Atop my dictionary rests a copy of Bill's 1972 book. In it is a signed note to me from Bill Kloefkorn. I probably had the copy with me on my aberrant short-lived separation to San Francisco. I know I stopped in Lincoln to see Bill and Greg Kuzma and Joel Belland. I know I slept at a cheap motel there. At 2:41 PM it is snowing. Earlier this afternoon when I looked out I saw snow on the icy yard; so I took several more through-my-window photos. Just took another one, but the snow is light and mostly nearly horizontally zipping by. Only a few flakes here and there hang and dance. 4:50 PM - A side result of a personal esophageal sphincter search was an article about foods. If this interests you, I suggest this search: 10 best foods you aren't eating Men's Health provides the article. - Brian A. J. Salchert
