hey thanks John.
after many hours of tweeking/experimenting....I see this is way to complicated for me...especially when Im try to add content to my blog... Ill forward my domain to the post itself if Im unable to work it out.
However I understand that the setting is in my main.php

<?php
	/**
	 * This is the main template. It displays the blog.
	 *
	 * However this file is not meant to be called directly.
	 * It is meant to be called automagically by b2evolution.
	 * To display a blog, you should call a stub file instead, for example:
	 * /blogs/index.php or /blogs/blog_b.php
	 * @package evoskins
	 * @subpackage custom

if( !defined('DB_USER') ) die( 'Please, do not access this page directly.' );

and I want this post to display http://successfulwithyou.com/index.php/2006/09/16/whois_duncan
Could some clever cookie post the appropriate main.php in a reply post...I would very much appreciate that!!
Also...youll see my meta tags...keywords are entered above...to no avail......where would these be put to get spidered?
many thanks so far

Well, here is the easiest method to display a sticky at the top of your home page.

<div class="bText">
<?php
if( !$s && !$cat && empty($catsel) && !$m && $disp=='posts' && !$title && !$p )
{
  ?>
<p><?php bloginfo('longdesc', 'htmlbody'); ?></p>

 <?php
}
?>
</div>

The

<?php bloginfo('longdesc', 'htmlbody'); ?>

is generated in the Admin section under the Blog settings section
Description

Long Description:

simply format your blurb in that text box and it will appear at the top of your front page.

This is usually reserved to appear at the top of your side bar, but works fine as a "fake post"

Oh, and try putting it in your _main.php just after..

<div class="bPost" lang="<?php $Item->lang() ?>">
        <?php
            locale_temp_switch( $Item->locale ); // Temporarily switch to post locale
            $Item->anchor(); // Anchor for permalinks to refer to
        ?>
