Welcome to the POST page, also known as HOME. Posts are added sporadically, with little rhyme or reason, more or less falling into the listed categories. Because some posts are far longer than recommended (& Yours Crudely has not figured out how to condense posts with “Read More” option), clicking in the “Category” menu can help keep from Bog Downs & Blog Swamps, especially in seasons with many compelling current events.
Besides the Most Recent, Yours Crudely especially recommends the newly added (& reader nominated) Best of Class category. Posts called forth by current events tend to go quickly out of date. Others never had a real date to begin with, e.g., just play, for the fun of it, serious jazz, crazy jazz, & for the sport of i, for example. Whether adding to the public babble, exploring issues that never go out of style, or sharing personal history for the record, these little pieces cover varied territory, irregular ground, unevenly.
If you aren’t having enough fun, insight, aha!’s & eureka! moments to make the attention worth the while, simply skip’n scroll along to another topic, post, postit, or category to find one that does–Or click your heels over to one of the topic/ period pages listed in header for more substantive treatments of historical issues.
Given the avalanche of posts triggered by the hyperactive political atmosphere, feel free to scroll way down, clicking “older posts” for more varied topics & treatments. Not yet having figured out how to get automatic condensing of posts with “read more” buttons, I’ve moved the main body of many no longer current “Current Events & Issues” posts (e.g., relating to politics) to a single “Year of the Fluke” pdf. (clickable file), up more or less soon). Let us know (c/o BodLibrary2017@gmail.com ) if there are any you’d like to read not yet up in the meanwhile.
Pick your poison, where & when.
Come back soon & try again.
