[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 * Good morning (or as it may be). Tuesday 2002-10-15 4:34pm - Heavenly Father, You know the extent of my sins and how horrendous too many of them were: You also know the extent and value of my right choices. How amazing, God, You are! Twice today, when I phoned the hotel to speak with/ a certain woman, You made it so/ she was there for me. Thank You, God, for being; for being perfect; for being amazing/ for one such as I, . . . so stupid. Wednesday 2002-10-16 9:29am - So today there was 7:17 & 8:11 & 8:17 naturally. And during the mid-day hours, 12:17 popped up; and then a namber/ I had not/ seen in a while, the God number: 1:11. That number stopped me, pulled me into meditation, brought me solace. Between 3 and 4pm I decided to eat a large apple. Some while later, as I wasn't feeling quite right, I decided to put some apple butter on a slice of bread. The slice had a couple of wee holes in it; so I got out the B & B and covered them. Since there wasn't much apple butter left in its jar, I used my father's old Newton trick. Holding the open jar at a high angle over the bread with my left hand, I hit upward against the jar toward the jar's raised bottom with the heel of my right hand. When I had gotten enough apple butter on the bread, I wiped off the jar's lip, and closing the jar, put it back in the fridge. After spreading the apple butter around on the bread, I glanced up: the wall clock read 5:11. I ate what I had made for myself and went back to the den. Earlier in the den-- when I wasn't online-- I had made some essential phone calls, wrote out some checks for bills and gotten them ready for mailing, and dealt as I could with two days of received mail, etcetera. During this new period of time I decided to pray the rosary. Then I thought I would go back to the kitchen/living area to eat some sardines with crackers; and, I decided to take with me a small empty bowl which had been sitting on a nearby shelf. I said to myself: it better not be 6:17 when I go through the door. (I do not wear or carry on me a personal watch. I just do not like them.) On the other side of the door is a sofa bed which Janice and I had been sleeping on the last days of her life here, and which I have continued to sleep on. Next to the bed I have an alarm clock. It happens to be running about 30 seconds ahead of the wall clock. I didn't look at the wall clock first; on the alarm clock was: 6:17. Seeing that, I decided not to eat the sardines and crackers then but to come back to write the above section. Anyway, I got quite involved with it, and as soon as I finished (I was not paying attention to the computer clock time, but I was "thinking about" getting something to eat) I went offline; and even though I knew it probably was not a good idea, I went to eat the sardines and crackers anyhow. Lo!, as if to herald my entrance, the bedside alarm clock shined 7:17, and two seconds later the wall clock shined 7:17. Thursday 2002-10-17 11:56am All the wrong choices. All the wrong choices. Where is there forgiveness if I can not forgive myself? [Interlude: Today I tried to ignore all that 11 after & 17 after stuff; and, after being away from here most of the afternoon, I had even semi-forgotten about it. Watched some news (including "The ABC Evening News" while I was in the kitchen chasing yet another black mosquito and eating some more of the blueberry banana loaf) until near 7pm. I then returned to this den to do this & that. When I finished the drink I had and took the plastic back to the kitchen to be washed--sometime, both the wall clock and the bedside clock shone 7:17.] I was supposed to be the son my father lost, and who knows whether I was; but I am not the son he thought he had. the 10-14-02 entry on page 105 of the Blue Ledger---------- Brian Salchert I tell you: It is extremely difficult to avoid doing that which later you might regret, whether that is doing something you should not do/ or not doing something you should do. 10-17-02 entry on page 105 of the Blue Ledger---------- Brian Salchert Wednesday 202-10-23 10:54pm - This afternoon was a heavily medical one. Went to meet with my WC counselor to fill out an E-- F-- application. Also, being in the building where I get my annual flu shot, I did so. Afterwards drove to Eckerd's bor 2 meds & a supplement. Yesterday, I believe it was, I had it verified that Janice's last medical bills were covered by Medicaid. Thank You, Lord. Sunday 2002-10-27 7:20pm - For most of the sunlit time of the day yesterday I was in Shands atAGH, mostly in the CPU. - Brian A. J. Salchert
