[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 Thursday 2002-07-25 - Today I remembered some other thoughts I spoke to Janice, especially about the card from here parents and youngest sister and her husband and their two daughters, and about the stuffed cat she liked to hold/ and was there for her, and about the 2 rosaries brought: her glow-in-the-dark one, and the one from her youngest sister which the Pope had blessed; and, I believe, this: "Janice, you, time upon time the smile of Joy, ... ... ... so be with God, and be with me." This afternoon, per my credit counselor this morning, I wrote a short letter to Janice's "whale card" bank, sending along/ a copy of her death certificate. This afternoon I received a letter of gratitude from The University of Florida College of Medicine "for the gift of the remains of your wife, Janice Salchert." This letter also included words of sympathy and a specially printed exceptional quotation from the widow of one of their donors. Friday 2002-07-26 - "Did you not know" that any problems you have in your life, any problems she or he has are all my fault? - This world as it is desires and requires persons/ with specific reliable levels of perfection. I am not such a person, though I do/ for the sake of this world/ and the sake of me in it/ continue to try to be. The types of perfection my spirit naturally strives for are only peripherally noted by this world as it is; are only in the stratospheres/ of caring prized. And even there, amateur that I often am, are seldom made much of. Brian Salchert from Blue Ledger, page 100 Sunday 2002-07-28 - Everything that didn't need to be, actually, I think, did need to be; after all, who knows/ better than God knows. Brian Salchert from Blue Ledger, page 101 Tuesday 2002-07-30 - How is it that I who am nothing or/ perhaps, even less than nothing continue to be blessed and blessed by that One Being Who is "Everything"? Brian Salchert from Blue Ledger, page 101 Wednesday 2002-07-31 8:38pm - After falling asleep for an "hour" in the middle of it, I moments ago completed the following letter to --------. Dear Representative: This letter is to inform you that the holder of account ....-....-....-.... is now deceased. I, Brian A. Salchert, her former husband, am sending along a copy of the Death Certificate of Janice M. Salchert. As to the $56.68 charge on the current statement, a representative of the company as ...-...-.... said it would be taken off in two or three billing cycles. Her death and the length of time before the current charge is reversed creates a conundrum. I await your company's resolution. Thank you, Brian A. Salchert Brian A. Salchert address phone # email address Tuesday 2002-08-06 9:54am - I just finished writing a letter I did not expect to write, but because of what I said in it, I have decided to show the body of it here. The last cat we had was a black-and-white outdoors cat, though Janice picked it up when it was yet a kitten. She (Suzee) was ill. We did what we needed to to return it to health, and we kept it in our mobile home; but we did not thereafter do what we ought to have done, and we spoiled it. *--------- ----------------. During the early night of July 18th, 2002, Janice died. There's a hole in my soul that will not heal, and I cannot pretend the donation herein will heal it. * ---------------- ----------. * Finally I felt it necessary to give Suzee up to animal control. Besides and because of our not doing right by her, I was convinced she could no longer be trusted. I don't here wish to reveal the details. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In memory of Janice Marie Binnebose Salchert Godspeed, Brian Salchert Monday 2002-08-19 4:07pm - 8-18-02 No matter how much real good we have done: quietly, honestly, lovingly, there will always be (upon reflection) the feeling that we have not done enough. That is a condition of imperfection. Brian Salchert from Blue Ledger, page 101 * 8-18-02 Blessed Virgin, Blessed Trinity, if when Janice/ was shocked by that stroke, she did not know what to think or do-- I do not know what to think or do-- I can only pray she is okay, and is there with you.
