***  From Connie Eckard:

Ned:

Did you really slip below 10,000 subscribers?  Or was this a case of “cut, paste, but didn't edit/update?”

Thanks for sharing Robert Holland's pithy responses to the ungrateful, free-loading minions.  (My daddy used to say that some people would complain if you hung 'em with a new rope.)  Robert is one of those communicators I admire and wish I knew better.

And, finally, no, I will not edit JOTW during your next absence.  I gave up drinking years ago and I'm sure editing this masterpiece would be my downfall.

Thanks for your support.  –Connie

***  Who hasn’t batted three times this inning?

Ned –

Friday and Saturday were even better days for t-ball, especially if you are a fan of the Reds in Oak Park, Ill. My sons Brian and Nathan, ages 7 and 6, play for the team; Nathan is in his rookie year and Brian is a journeyman. Our kids all rotate through different positions every inning, so they have no standing assignments.

The Reds beat the Diamondbacks 36-20 on Friday night. Notably, only one Reds player was called out (a force) in all six innings. Nathan scored a situational out (a big deal for this age group, especially for a rookie). Our heads-up first-graders pulled off a triple play. The game ended when Noah, a hefty, klutzy kid who was playing pitcher at the time, calmly snagged the ball out of mid-air after it was hit by their best player. No one was more surprised than Noah. It was very fun watching a bunch of first- and second-graders kids managing to lift him up on their shoulders. We shared our ice cream sandwiches with the Diamondbacks.

On Saturday the Reds beat the Blue Jays 36-25. Brian earned the game
ball for engineering two back-to-back situational outs while manning
second base. We shared our donuts with everyone (good sportsmanship
starts young).

The Reds have earned 108 runs–three sets of 36–in the past three
games, the maximum allowed by league rules. The season ain't over, but
it's going to be hard for our team to surpass this wonderful weekend.

(Noah is actually 19.  I saw that episode on Law & Order.  And I would checvk his glove for slippery elm.)

service of professional communicators providing mutual support to one
another. The JOTW serves 9,800 professional communicators, and
growing every week. Please help contribute job opportunities so that
this information can be shared with everyone in the network. The key to successful networking is living by the golden rule.  Do something to help a fellow communicator, and some day they may be in a position to help you, or someone else like you.

How does it work?  If you find out about a job opportunity
in communications, send it to me (
