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.

Edges of Knowledge Tuesday 2002-01-01 11:11am - Some want to tell me what they see in my future; but what about what I see in my future? Is it effort, effort, effort, effort; and no results? Or have I forgotten what effort is? Or have I become incapable of whatever effort will be needed? Sunday 2002-01-06 6:42pm - I am as I am; yet I need to be cognizant of the presence of God and of God's graces; and, with the never-ending help of His presence & His graces, I must strive to be better than I am, to accomplish things of deep holy value, regardless of any recognition I get or don't get. - - 7pm - Self-pity is deadly. Monday 2002-01-21 11:53am - Remember, In spite of the fact I have a strongly pessimistic (melancholic) personality; in spite of the fact my words & actions are often deeply negative; in spite of the fact my wry humor serves as a cover for the anxiety and sadness gusting in me, every moment is God's moment; and so I pray. Friday 200-02-01 12:27pm - With special thanks to Dr. Phil McGraw and his current book, Self Matters These: Defining Moments Critical Choices Pivotal People I will be taking the time to list and meditate on mine. * In the first entry on this page I listed 10 goals, most of which cannot be reached by a certain time, but one of which, the 8th one, has been reached. * Although I have normally scored between 115 & 120 on IQ tests, on 09JUN84 I took a GRE exam at UF, scoring V740 & Q630. On 03AUG01, I learned that according to one online estimator those scores placed my IQ between 140.55 & 143.35 and thus in the percentile of 99.657. Toot, toot! I'm sorry, too many beans, I guess; but--yes--I would--and then some. * So often, by certain persons I have lived with over the years, have I gotten reprimanded for not being perfectly practical in this and that situation, that several moments ago I finally said: Maybe I should have been put in an institution shortly after I was born (so as not to be an annoyance and disappointment). Monday 2002-02-04 1:14pm - (the following was written on 02/02/02) I am an inveterate perfectionist: (mostly in things others could give a diddle about); I am an inveterate complainer: (mostly about things others could give a diddle about); and/ I suspect I know why. Born. The traits I was born with (mental/emotional/physical) coupled with the influence of societal mores impinging on me of non-human things / become my balm & my poison. Too, too sensitive, I am probably a borderline manic-depressive. Without Jesus there is no redemption. Monday 200-02-25 2:53pm - Yesterday, it occurred to me, I (along with certain others) have an on-edge personality. Wednesday 2002-03-04 2:27pm - O Lord, I am such a wreck, such a wreck! Wednesday 2002-05-01 11:36am - The following is a poem I found in a folder yesterday, a poem written in the mid 1980's when I was a student under Donald Justice at The University of Florida. Angle of Vision Ready to travel the miles north, we two, about to part another time, twice kiss; i do not walk her to the door; but from the bedroom watch until she's back in view three stories below and sits upon her red suitcase so placed on the main walk the patio's post eclipses them, and with her await the maroon taxi & move the suitcase back a little & pace & check the time and open its door & lift onto its back seat the troubling case & get in & look up & smile & wave & wave & smile because we want to because we can. Sunday 02-05-05 5:56pm - Lord, Jesus, through each this moment along the Way, thank You for Your gifts today. = = = Brian A. J. Salchert
