legacy posts

I joined Ricochet in December 2012 and made my first post there less than a month later. As of this writing I have published 180 posts on that Member Feed but it was not until 2018 that I had one promoted to be viewable by the non-member community also. There have now been a total of 77 of my posts elevated in that manner. That entire archive is my history, my memory, and will most assuredly be my reference material for quite some time here. Therefore, I think it is of value to provide a link summary to those viewable posts. (Original publication dates have replaced the dates of record on the archived posts where that determination could be accurately determined. The dates or record represent the dates that posts were promoted.)
