"terrible damage done to generation after generation of Americans of African descent"

Another generation has been added since your thoughts in 1999. Also in Story Chip, the experience of three generations of one family in Alabama.

Actually, B Is For Betsy was written by Carolyn Haywood and her series about Betsy and her friend Billy has never been out of print. There are new printings with modern artwork.

As much as we like the recipe, there is a never ending quest to make improvement.

Try substituting honey for about half of the molasses.

The change to the taste and texture of the cookie is wonderful.

We visited "The Collection" antiques in Trumansville, New York, about as uncowboy a place as you will ever find. We told the owner my story of the cowboy hat funeral and asked if he had a suggestion for an appropriate hymn.

His response, "You don't bury an old hats, you sell them."

Tour the US with a brew pub map as your itinerary for the enormous variety of brewing techniques and tastes sure, but you will also spend time meeting interesting people. Mere hours after after posting about looking for a and moving final tribute for a well loved hat, we were settled in the patio of the Blue Heron brewery, just a little bit north of Embudo and Dixon, New Mexico, with a delicate porter (to be fair, some of us went for the amber ale) worthy of the trip on its own. In between sets, the small stage in the corner became the home of Eddie Harrison. The brief set he played included Waylon Jennings, Bobbie Gentry and the Righteous Brothers, all tunes that Eddie would remember from their original release. While Eddie's eyes sparkled, his voice steady and expressive even if no longer full and his arthritic fingers never missed a note when he got to Stan Jones' 1948 classic Ghost Riders in the Sky if he finished the first chorus before the whole patio (no it is not really that big), was buzzing with nominating the tune for a hat's final rest.

OK, haunting and definitely cowboy enough, but this is not a dirge or about hats or unrequited love or any of those other important emotions that can be invoked on our most solemn moments. I am still looking for nominations, as I am confident that both nominated songs would do, I hope to do better for this noble hat. By the way, thanks to Eddie and the folks at the Blue Heron for inspiring the conversation. When you are near Santa Fe, drop in and sample the porter but wait until fall as it seems some folks researching funeral songs drank up the last of the summer brewing.

Now some helpful suggestions:

450 pixels (give or take 40 or 50 pixels) is a good size for the longest side of an image. JPG's, PNG's and tiff's all work well. Gifs can get distorted if the site resizes them.

You have the opportunity when uploading the file to change its name on the website (not on your computer). You might want to do this if the file has a long name like "my aunt Matilda at her 100th birthday party with her children and great grand children.jpg" which will be shortened or deleted by the web site software or if there is already a file on the page with the name you wanted to use.

Adding photos is easy once you know where to look.

Before you start, make sure that you are logged in as a member of Story Chip. Only members can upload files.

At the bottom of each page, there are a series of functions in blue boxes. Click the "Files" box.

The page will expand showing any files that are already attached to the page (usually none if you have just created it).

Under the list, should be "Upload files from you computer".

Click the link to open a dialogue for browsing for the image file.

Select the file you want to upload and then click "Upload"

You should see the "be patient" while the upload happens, followed by a return to the list of files.

Simple? right!?

The easy way to add a picture starts with the bottom buttons again. Click "Edit"

The screen will expand to include a text box with all of the code and text for the page below the existing version of the page. The simple way to add an image is position the cursor in the text box where you want the image to be and then click the next to last icon on the middle row of icons above the text box (looks like a screen with a star and will say "add image wizard" if you hover on it).

A dialogue will open. On the second line, click the button for "attached file". This will open a list of images that are attached to the page.

Select the file you want included. You can click "insert code" now or get fancy by selecting the size of the image from the drop down box or skip that step and go to the drop down that says "Position" that will allow you to center the image, or have it placed to the right or left with text wrapped around it.

This is a lot of words, and when you see it, I hope it is fairly intuitive.

How do I add a photo to a submission?

More notes on using dashes.

Dashes used without a space become a solid line. Three dashes look like this —-

If I use the same two or more dashes around a word it looks like this - word -

The Colored Eggs story contained two places where the writer used two dashes without a space about a paragraph apart. The software turned that into several lines of crossed out text that looked like this

More notes on using dashes.

Hope this helps.

Richard, thanks for adding your story to Story Chip. I have moved you question to the forum for two reasons. First, I am sure that some other visitors may end up with the same question about how Story Chip works. Second, you took advantage of our offer to post a story anonymously and this is the channel available to me to respond. I have the answer in the next post in this thread but want to encourage everyone to join Story Chip when they post so that we can reply directly to questions about using the site.

By the way, when you join Story Chip we do not get information about you or even your email address. We get a code that allows us to send you an email when you have questions. We do not share you information and do not flood your inbox with messages about what you are missing by not visiting us as often as you do facebook. Speaking of facebook, if you can use you facebook log in and password to join Story Chip.

As much as we want to make adding stories be just like typing on your own keyboard, there are just times when the code the runs the web site gets in the way. In this case, adding dashes created the problem, like —this. To create the solid line, I put two dashes without a space in between. If I had used two dashes with a space, it would look like - - this. Dashes are one of the elements used by the software to help create effects, but if you want to use more than one, add a space.

I just wrote about coloring eggs. Why were some of my lines struck out? Just curious. (Richard K. Fogg)

The above link no longer takes us to Holocaust Survivor Stories. I will look for others.

I had the privilege, for my January project of my senior year (1975), to work with Carol reading and discussing Carl Jung. This morphed into an incredible independent study for my last semester. I read various works of Jung, wrote, had many amazing dreams, and sat in the privacy of Carol's office, in what felt like moments out of time, talking about all of it.

I enjoyed the previous story and it inspired me to add my own olfactory memories.
As a child growing up in the 1950’s in the Virginia suburbs, I remember the smell of burning leaves. It was common to rake a large pile of leaves and burn them in the street. This was a dramatic event, with flames and charged with warnings to stay away and I loved the smell. It heralded fall which in Virginia did not have the threat of heavy snow, rather the promise of a few snowy days – and possible snow days. This aroma of burning leaves is a smell that is lost, for the best no doubt, but it was a smell from a time that is now in our past and if I find the smell now in the air, I am transported to the 50’s, to post-war optimism, suburbia, to a time when children were free to wander in the woods, our dogs off leash, free to collect candy on Halloween without our parents and freedom or perhaps naiveté to ride bicycles without helmets, parents or even shoes.

Autumn Leaf Burning by Jean McGavinJean McGavin, 16 Sep 2012 22:45

Tonight is the celebration of the 40th reunion of Yorktown High School class of 1971, in Arlington, VA. This fall Yorktown students entered a new building. Ours was torn down and a state of the art one put in its place. The building is gone but our memories persist - with or without the bricks and mortar. I remember football games and post game dances. I remember soda straw wrappers hanging like tinsel from the ceiling of the cafeteria. I remember crushes and teachers - Portia Mears as a favorite comes to mind. I remember adolescent struggles and embarrassments and some victories. I remember the awakening of political angers and feminism. The Viet Nam war was raging, our older brothers were being drafted and our classmates were facing that possibility as well. The music of Woodstock and Motown played in our heads. It was a time of upheaval and crisis for us, for our parents and this played out at every high school across the country. We rode a curve of tumult across the political and social spectrum - protests, riots, idealism, desegregation, music, assassinations, war, drugs, and education.

Add your memories to this page. Help to tell the story of that time at Yorktown.
