printing confusion

I am using Lenny, up2date. I use CUPS for printing, and everything prints just 
fine for MOST applications. I just tried to print a web page, and I think it 
was a flash type page. It brought up a very small window that ( I thought) 
had the correct gutenprint printer, and I said OK. nothing printed.

lpstat -t shows:
# lpstat -t
scheduler is running
system default destination: Gutenprint_USB_Printer_1
device for Gutenprint_USB_Printer_1: usb://EPSON/Stylus%20Photo%20R380 
Gutenprint_USB_Printer_1 accepting requests since Sat 21 Nov 2009 06:09:54 AM 
printer Gutenprint_USB_Printer_1 is idle.  enabled since Sat 21 Nov 2009

but I see a /var/log/lpr.log that has this in it:
# more lpr.log
Nov 21 05:42:29 paulandcilla lpd[11629]: /dev/lp0: No such file or directory
Nov 21 05:43:30 paulandcilla lpd[11702]: /dev/lp0: No such file or directory

then I saw an email from someone that mentioned lpq so I ran it and got this:
# lpq -a

7th    pbc        6    (standard input)                      6092040 bytes

what does this mean, and what do I do to fix it?
