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 Sunday 2002-05-05 6:45pm - While I cannot know the nature of your psyche, I do know--and am constantly learning more-- about the nature of my psyche. Sadly, one such piece of knowledge shows how easily stress unbalances me. Spates of anger (you may not realize) coming from/ someone as I, are not, actually, directed toward the situations, objects, persons they appear to be; but toward the ventor of those spates of anger. They are all, primordially, transferred epithets. They are all hurtful evidences of self-loathing. They are all representative of an ingrained psychological malignancy. Do I wish I were not so plagued. Absolutely. Monday 2002-05-13 7:26pm - Recently I became a member of The Confraternity of the Rosary. About one week ago I received from them some literature, among which was a novena announcement, with 18 possible intentions attached, with the 18th being Special Intentions. I am still attempting to form several relevant to me. I suspect I will be fiddling with the wording of these for some while yet. Roughly, the first is: That my psyche be healed as regards my getting "all bent out of shape" when I am forced by certain circumstances to expend time & energy hunting and fixing that which I feel I should not have had to deal with. In other words: Let me always remain calm, not matter what unexpected task comes my way. The second is: That The Blessed Virgin go to her Son, my Lord and Savior, to ask that any evils-- if any there are--others have wished befall me/ be negated. The third is: That I learn to carry those crosses I am given/ silently and joyfully. Wednesday 2002-05-15 7:24m - What a day today was! difficulty after difficulty! and from my end, failure after failure. I just don't know, God; I just don't know. Thursday 2002-05-16 12:20pm - Have I been irresponsible in my life? Yes, too often. Have I been a fool? Have I been an idiot? Yes. Am I smug about it? No. Thursday 2002-05-23 - Today I received a conclusions letter from Dr. M. D. of the Institute on Aging at the University of Florida regarding the project I participated in on Saturday, December 9th, 2000. From whatthis letter revealed, I could easily see how grandiose my goals were--and yet are--compared to most other eldering persons. I truly am a dreamer. Recently I have been taking online IQ tests with a view toward improving myself mentally. One such test I took, on which I scored 122, placed me in that site's Inspired Inventor group. Another such, which I took last night, surprisingly scoring 132, placed me in that site's Gifted Group and so among the top 5%, high enough to be invited to join that site's Society. Also, they had a section of questions wherein I was able to share my 1370 score on the one GRE exam I have taken, a score I will ever be pleased with no matter how many years I am allowed to live beyond JUN 09 1984. . . . . For whatever it means, I have scored from 100 to 153 on online IQ tests I have taken lately. Sadly, however intensely one dreams, however high one's IQ, if one does not have wisdom. . . . Sunday 2002-05-26 6:55pm - Back in the late mid 1960's, when I was enrolled in The University of Iowa's Writers' Workshop, I became convinced it was in what happens to the #'s we use as they move into the 3rd dimension that the proof of Fermat's Last Theorem exists; and-- the residing proof notwithstanding--I am still so convinced. That is why I found myself one day in Iowa U's Math Library/ constructing what I hoped would be the basis for a geometric proof; and that is why some thirty years later I found myself resdiscovering--as I latterly learned--Bernoulli's power sets. Given this, I tend to believe Fermat actually did/ provide a proof in a margin: that an extremely simple proof exists, one which keys on: the-nature-of-the- spaces between each other/ #'s are forced to// once they rise past the squares level. Tuesday 2002-06-11 5:20pm - I am just intelligent enough to want to do great things; yet, I am just lacking enough in intelligence to consistently feel I will never be able to do great things. Such frustration, I realize, may well ensure I will never do great things. Still, I do not cease to push forward, in this and that, to seek here to perfect a talent, and to seek there to find answers where it seems on the surface no answers can be found; I do not cease attempting to learn, create, and to share, always hoping my venturing so will not only be of value in itself, but also of value to attending others. Wednesday 2002-06-12 6:49pm - As somber as it was, due to our physical, psychical, and spiritual ailments, today is our 37th anniversary. Thursday 2002-06-13 8:53am - If to be truly an American, one needs to be an entrepreneur, I am not now nor am ever likely to be truly an American. Sunday 2002-06-30 6:11pm - What is my opinion of Rap Music? All too often it is Negatively Disruptive, and also Disrespectful, either in itself, and/or because of the behaviors it encourages-- due to its structure and content-- in those who are drawn to it. If I or you (for whatever reason(s)) disrespect any other, I or you therein allow any other to likewise disrespect you or me. - Brian A. J. Salchert
