Navigate To What You Desire

Greetings!  This is a quick message for my readers and followers of this blog.  First of all, THANK YOU!

Just a heads up- I have added categories here for BUDDHISM and MEDITATION.  I realize many of my followers are here for the typewriter posts which is great.  I don’t wish to lose readership, so if you’re only interested in a particular category where I post you can simply use the CATEGORIES option on my site and scroll to your interest.  Or better yet…

I use the aggregator FEEDLY for all the blogs I follow.  If you don’t use an aggregator you might want to try it out.  It is a godsend in keeping your online reading organized. The great thing is, if you only want to populate your feed of a particular blog with posts from a specific category (like say typewriters), you can simply navigate to that category, copy the link, then paste the link into the ADD CONTENT area of the aggregator.  Click on FOLLOW – boom, done!

Don’t worry, all of my categories are still viable.  I just didn’t want to start another blog for those topics; at least, not yet.  I need another blog right now like I need another typewriter (I don’t).

If you have any questions or comments about using an aggregator, feel free to contact me in the comment section of this post.  Hugs to all you readers and again, thank you.  ~Tom~

This publicity photo is said to be from 1943, taken in California, and the young lovely listening to the mailbox is Lynn Baggett, whose story is a cautionary tale for young women with stars in their eyes. Miss Baggett was “discovered” at the age of 19 by a Warner Brothers talent scout while walking to work in downtown Dallas, and came to Los Angeles where she landed a movie contract and appeared in 24 films.

She was, however, credited in only three of them. She is remembered in some circles as a beautiful but silent waitress in Mildred Pierce (1945), as a jilted beauty in Douglas Sirk’s Lured (1947), and as the widow Mrs. Philips in the film noir D.O.A. (1950).

Her real role was as a studio beauty. Playwright Arthur Laurents said of her: “She was very sweet…
