Greg Gulden, Jerre Slaybaugh, Ron Shearer, Kathleen Mae Schneider and Toni Deroche, the much loved former owner of the Shady Dell. This post also goes out to all the other faithful Dell rats who kindly follow this blog, the ones who were there and still care. You guys, more than anyone else, can understand what I've been going through recently.
In the wake of a significant upset that I and other Dell rats have experienced in recent weeks, my first impulse was to publish an angry post entitled "The Darker Side of Shady." Thank goodness Kathleen Mae Schneider's latest chapter gave me a much needed cooling off period. The last thing
I want to do is invite you, my dear friends, to visit my virtual Shady Dell and then subject you to a rant. Realizing I would just be barking at the moon by venting righteous indignation, I confronted my anger, worked through it and finally came to accept that over which I have no control. As my good friend Dave Bupp was able to do all those years ago, I found peace of mind. I took a lesson from Kathleen's mother, 100 year old Margaret Elizabeth Brown Schneider, the Oldest Living Dell Rat, who always exhorts "Don't dwell on it." In this case I decided I can't and won't Dell on it. I calmed down, turned my thinking around and chose to create a post that heals rather than hates.

To do that you need to execute a continuous
"SMOOTH" scroll down the page at a brisk pace,
a rate of no more than one picture per second.
Do not slow down or stop to examine any of
the pictures until you have first tried my method.
