Remember Me By This

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “For Posterity.”

The Prompt today was to write a post that you want to be remembered by. I’d like to try something different.  Instead of my telling you what post I’d like to be remembered by, would each reader please post a comment telling which post you would most remember me by?  It’s possible to search by topic if you don’t remember the title, or you can just scroll back through two years of prompts until you find your favorite.  This would be very very interesting to me, might help you find some posts you’ve never read, and also give me a day off from the frustration of searching and searching for ways to learn and remember PC ways.  Yes, I’m getting there, and I am beginning to think there was a reason for this painful lesson that forced me to learn how to coexist with my Acer.  Last night my Mac came alive for a few minutes several times before shutting off, which led Duckie to believe the problem might be in the fan. It has resided in the rice bag for most of the time since it came back from Daniel the dismemberer and is back there now, with my camera, which I also got to work for a few minutes, so perhaps not all is lost and praise be to the restorative powers of rice.  Remember this if you ever soak your camera or computer! I think the salt air is also a big contributor to computer demise. My next-door-neighbor Daniel (different Daniel) says his computers usually only last a year!  Okay, on to your assignment.  Please, please.  Judy (aka Jury)

Update: I finally answered the prompt as written here.

    Although I do read your blog almost every day, I remember you most from your Grief Diary book. Every time I see something shaped like a heart, I think of you and what it means to you. And I remember having lunch with you at Lake Chapala and you gave me a seed pod in the shape of a heart. Messages from the people we have loved and who are no longer “of this earth” but still present in our memories and perhaps still alive in spirit.

      Hi Tamara, Just wrote a very long reply that somehow got erased. As you can see, I’m still not a whiz on this PC. Long story short, there has been such an outpouring of help and support from this beach community where I was a stranger 7 weeks ago that it has actually made a disaster one of the most heartwarming experiences of my life. This support was echoed online by people who read about it on my blog. Once I stopped looking for hearts on the beach, it seemed as though they continued to find me! Yours was one. xo Jury

        I visited my Dad this past weekend. He has a photograph of foam on the beach here in Oregon in the shape of a heart! A friend of his takes these photographs of the foam….and he has the whole alphabet. I wonder if the ocean is trying to tell us something?

    I have read some of your interesting posts with great interest. I will remember you for your post on the old sayings from Europe in the good( bad) old days. Unfortunately I can’t find it again. I would like so much to link to that particular post. I am very interested in historical issues.

        Maria, re/ the ‘thinking cap”

        ” . . . such caps possibly did exist. The ‘considering cap’ is explained at great length, in fiction at least, in The History of Little Goody Two-Shoes, 1765, . . . a considering Cap, almost as large as a Grenadier’s, but of three equal Sides; on the first of which was written, I MAY BE WRONG; on the second, IT IS FIFTY TO ONE BUT YOU ARE; and on the third, I’LL CONSIDER OF IT.” (The explanation is a quote.)

          One of my boys went through a very tough period from he was about 14 to nearly now he is 28. Some years ago one of my other boy’s friend said: ” He has his No Hat on”. Also saying no to all invitations to come out and meet the world! I am glad to say he is now out and lives like a normal person regaining all that was lost.
