Why the title?

"Pioneers take the arrows"

Oh, wait. I should be upbeat and taking arrows doesn't sound like an upbeat thing to say.

So, let me amend that statement.

It was courage and vision that led the pioneers to leave behind a comfortable, settled life and trek West to begin a new life in a new place. Many of those from the East that went West found a strength within themselves that they didn't see while they were in their old life. Instead of being one of those that just kind of went along with the others in the old life, they became leaders and visionaries in their new lives.

The sentiments of that last paragraph come from a favorite author, Louis L'Amour, in many of his books. So, I can't really say that it is an original thought from me. However, what he said is truthful.

Welcome to being a pioneer. Look ahead and ignore the "barking dogs" that give you negative opinions and comments. Louis L'Amour also spoke of the barking dogs.

In some of his stories, it was usually a father or older man telling a young boy how it was that when the Westward bound Conestoga wagons rolled through towns, the dogs came out to bark at them. His character then told the young listener that the barking didn't stop the wagons from going on to their destinations.

Following the advice of the Louis L'Amour characters, may we all forge ahead with our plans, after carefully considering all consequences and leave the "barkers" behind.

Question for Blogger Users

I have noticed lately that when I click on a post title to “copy” the address from the browser address line, the words in that address line do not display the post title, but instead it displays part of the first line of the post’s text.

So, is anyone else noticing this?

Does anyone have an idea of how I can get my address line information to display the post title instead of the first line?

Or, is this just a recent idiosyncrasy of Blogger?

Any help would be appreciated if you have any answers for me.

Thanks all.

  1. Terry, not too sure I understand the questions correctly, but what I do if I want to reference a particular post in my blog, for instance, is:
    1. Go to my blog main page.
    2. Click on the title of the post I wish to link.
    3. When that page appears, right click and copy the address from the top address bar.
    4. Paste that info into my link box.

    I use Live Writer, so perhaps this is totally irrelevant! Or perhaps it is just too early for my wee brain . . . Email me if ya want and I'll try to help.
