I have been (unsuccessfully) trying to place labels on a 2D graph. I must 
have the syntax slightly incorrect [though I have tried every variation I 
can think of. 

I have a Plot that consists of 4 parabolas for which I specify quite a 
few parameters. I have the individual parabolas printing to screen in 
different colors and different line-thincknesses, all successfully. When 
I tried to add Text[expr, {x,y}], I got either my graph OR a generic 
graph with my text placed where I asked. Also, I did not know how to use 
the Text command within the original Plot command. Here is what my 
command looked like:

I set g=my correctly functioning plot
Then I typed Show[Graphics[g,Text["a message",{5,1}]]]

I was following the examples on PP 470, 471 in Principles of Mathematica 

Thanks for your help!
