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 Thursday 2002-12-12 8:53pm - There is a certain person--he knows who he is-- who should he by some magnificent turn happen to read this/ I openly thank for popping me in the mouth that night at the ice rink a lifetime ago/ I, who looking back see how crazed, how clouded my "brilliant" mind was; I, who looking in now see how crazed, how clouded my "resonant" mind yet is. For at least 3 weeks--though it seems like ages-- I have been at war with a dark-n-devious computer virus, a war I was not able to win to/ my satisfaction until I concluded I needed to ditch the WinZip program on my desktop, a program I hadn't used anyhow. Once WinZip was gone/ so was the virus's hiding place. Finally, at 12:34pm, via this computer's Find program, after disallowing it to go to the Recycle Bin, I deleted it. And immediately thereafter NAV full system scan did verify it was gone. (I know, I know. I'm not holding my breath either.) During this time, though I have considered the spell 11 and 17 have had on me may be (when viewed rationally) not at all outside the range of probability, I cannot but be mystified when what seems to me most unlikely connections/ occur: as the 1:11pm and 1:17pm one on December ninth and the 2:11am and 2:17am one on December tenth. Monday 2002-12-16 7:59pm - 11 and 17 are still at it. Several days ago I experienced 6:11. 6:17, & 12:17 events. Yesterday, after lugging into this den from another long work night, the clock here greeted me with 10:17. This evening, back in the kitchen and back to eating-- after the thankful fulfillment of a long-awaited need-- I glanced up: 6:11. - Enough already? Wednesday 2003-01-01 2:24pm - Between noon and one above the mobile home to the east of mine I saw my first flock of cedar waxwings this season. My life recently-- December 23/24-- was etched by a 4th seizure, one of such characteristics I found it necessary to get taken to ER, to absent myself from work, to cease driving, and to begin making changes in my daily routine. My doctor had me come see her and placed me on a second anticonvulsive medication, and has me using h- p- on my injured mouth. And God-- through two other persons-- is (it appears) securing those exact related aids for me I now most need. However unworthy I've been and may continue to be, God unfailingly provides me with blessings I cannot but be amazed at and ever grateful for. As one just recently told me: If someone wants to do you a favor, there must be a reason; so let them. If, God, I could be perfect for You, how glorious every moment would be! Thursday 2003-01-02 7:38pm - Initiated a subscription relationship with the WORD among us, and am now participating in the daily January meditations in the free issue they sent to Janice. Sunday 2003-01-19 10:38am - As of some time on 01/16/03 I am 62. Had a 5th seizure on the 14th. Wasn't taking my medications properly. Am to be getting an MRI and an MRA Tuesday, Phenytoin levels in my blood checked Wednesday, and am to be seeing my doctor again Thursday. That daily meditation I was doing/ somewhere ended. I ought to get back to it. The responses of others to my ailments have caused me to make some prayer changes. I probably shouldn't mention it but I am offering up the pain from the bite sores in my mouth as penance for sins I have committed. Wednesday 2003-01-29 7:29pm - Today has been warmer and busier. Gave my Mobile sister's and my Virginia Beach sister-in-law's phone numbers to the ever-kind Mrs. L.. Made a number of calls mysef to those two: In part because of a letter from the Anatomical Board of the State of Florida regarding Janice's cremains; and in part because of my leaning now toward selling my car but then realizing I had not yet gotten the title for it from the bank, a need which is so far proving a bit difficult to satisfy. Also in seeking other things, came upon a Salchert-search letter nearly 2 yrs. old. Am going to attempt to contact the sender. My V B s-i-l told me her parents had once again decided to move back to Waupun. My later recalling that dad had said Janice and I could use one of their plots at Calvary in Fond du Lac/ immediately made the returning of K & E to Wisconsin at this time seem to me another evidence of God's hand in our lives, especially in that K knows exactly where those plots are. I think he would be willing to take his number one daughter's cremains there. Anyway, I did make a return call to my s-i-l about it. - Brian A. J. Salchert
