*** From Robert Holland, ABC:

Hello, friends:

Well, apparently my first appearance on “Virginia This Morning” on WTVR-6 in Richmond sent ratings to unseen heights because they've invited me back! Yes, the local morning talk show apparently just can't get enough information about communication. Either that, or Big Earl and His Dancing Ants were unavailable to appear this month.

Whatever the case, I have been renewed for another season. Or, at least, for a 4- to 5-minute segment each Tuesday in September. My rants about rude people on cell phones in my Richmond.com column must have done the trick because that's what they want me to talk about this Tuesday, September 2. The show airs from 9 to 10 a.m., but if you're out of the viewing area or otherwise occupied — say, earning a living — they post the segments on their website at www.wtvr.com under the “Virginia This Morning” tab.

Next up: My own reality show in which I try to find either a buyer willing to pay billions for my business or a nice girlfriend for me. Whichever shows up first. If they're willing to do both, all the better.

*** Ned’s travel last week:

Monady:: Work all day in the office. Fly from Washington Reagan National Airport to Milwaukee on Air Tran. Don’t see how Air Tran and Midwest can compete on this route. Easy two hour flight. I get a Pontiac Vibe in Milwaukee. Shifter is confusing. Less than an hour drive to Great Lakes, Illinois. Wireless unavailable in Navy Lodge. It will be up in an hour I’m told, and tech support told me that all night, until the next morning when they said they were waiting for somebody to come in a 6. Tech support is in Atlanta, and their server was down the entire time. On a business trip, you gotta have email.. Matt Mogle recommended Five Points for lunch. “Best Chicago dogs.” I had two, with a butter pecan shake. I spilled mustard on my chinos. Bad move.

Tuesday: Visit Navy BM “A” at TSC Great Lakes. Who would have ever thought there would be a school for Boatswain’s Mates?

Fly from Milwaukee to San Diego via Denver on Frontier. We leave on time, and get in a few minutes early. At San Diego, I try several rental cars (don’t like the funky gear shifts, can’t gert the caddie emergency brake off, etc…) and settle on something bigger than I need. I arrive at Hampton Inn and my room is 78-degrees but they send a SWAT Team to my room and it gets fixed.

Wednesday: Visit LCS ASW Mission Det at Naval Station San Diego. I meet with the entire detachment. These guys are excited to be doing ASW exclusively, instead of the many collateral assignments they get on larger combatants.

Wednesday night: Dinner with Sonny Fox at Casa Guadalajara.

Thursday: Attend Surface Navy Association West Coast Symposium, Pier 2, Naval Station San Diego. This is a great symposium, and free. Right on the waterfront at Pier Two, in the shadow of USS Bonhomme Richard, where we have a terrific lunch.

Thursday night: Fly from San Diego to Washington Dulles International Airport on Jet Blue. Got stuck with the middle seat.

Friday: Went into the office.

*** From JH in Annapolis:

What's not clear about a “one paragraph pitch?” How does it go from being one paragraph to six? Than it would be called a “six paragraph pitch,” right?

Maybe it just me….

*** From Kate Lee:

Hey Ned:

Is it my imagination, or have the OPP's been extended (perhaps some magical

charm, ala Harry Potter “Extendio!”) to well beyond one paragraph? I only

note this because years ago, when I had the nerve to add a sentence,

standing apart from my paragraph, I got blasted by another JOTW'er.

Just curious – is it merely a suggested length?

I ask because I'm contemplating writing a OPP, after working freelance for a

year. The timing of the “year off” was good, but now I want to get back

into something more structured.

Cheers – love the virtual potluck, need to bring something to the party.

Still deciding … Gran's best apple pie, or should it be the North Carolina

BBQ from Henderson NC (family favorite, a must-stop on every annual roadtrip

from Atlanta to Newport News for over 25 years).

*** Another (yawn) freaking incredible JOTW milestone:

So, are we going to have a contest to guess the date by which JOTW's Facebook membership tops 1,000 like we did when JOTW itself was about to top 10,000?

It's really nice to be able to put faces with the names of people in the JOTW community. And I've got to say the JOTW community is a good-lookin' group. Present company excluded, of course.

*** Too much of a good thing:

Hi Ned:

I love your JOTW email but lately I’ve noticed how long they are getting. I would like to suggest that you break this up into two or three emails sent every other day and limit each to 10-15 jobs and news items. When I get a list of 30-35 jobs plus all the other news and information it’s a 20-30 minute read to scroll through and find what I’m looking for and so it ends up not getting fully read and into the trash at the end of the week— seems like a few shorter emails might be more effective all the way around. Just a thought … and thanks for listening.

Warm regards —

Joanna

(I used to do that. Some weeks had three or four issues come out. There was, and still is, some housekeeping with bounced emails and all, so I settled on once a week. Easier for me. My time is limited.)

Figured that was the case .. like I said .. just a thought … have a good one!

*** From Connie Mayse:

Hi, Ned. Yesterday I staggered off the urban trail after 60 miles. The occasion was the Cleveland Breast Cancer 3-day, a grueling 60-mile hike through lovely neighborhoods, scenic parks, quirky little communities, and stark urban miles with nary a shade tree in sight. Did I mention the heat? The mercury climbed to 90 the first two days. Unfortunately, many of our pit stops did not include shade – oops!

Anyway, the 1,200 walkers who participated raised over $3,000,000 for breast cancer research, awareness, education and support. Some of the walkers were survivors, others walked to honor someone special. I wore a Miss America-type sash bearing the names of 11 women who have been touched by this devastating disease. My wonderful donors, including several IABC and JOTW members, contributed $2,600 for this effort.

One of the names on my sash is Lois Hatch. Lois was my bridesmaid 28 years ago. She handstitched a quilt for me when my son was born 24 years ago. She fought breast cancer twice and lost the second battle in 2003. She is the reason I took on this challenge. Now, I'm not usually an outwardly emotional person, but I shed a lot of tears this weekend – especially at the end of the trail. When I reached the entrance to the Cleveland Convention Center, I was startled to hear a roar – a stadium cheer went up as I entered the space. A gauntlet of cheering people – walkers who had arrived ahead of me – stood in two long lines, forming a path. They clapped and cheered and held out their hands to touch me as I passed by, tears streaming down my grubby sunburnt cheeks. Two women who had befriended me on the trail – Kitty, a 1-year cancer survivor, and her sister Beth – shrieked midway down the line and the three of us hugged and jumped up and down for a moment. Then I passed through, was given a victory shirt and a pink rose, food and water. Then I turned around, found Kitty and Beth and began cheering the walkers arriving after me.

Today I feel stronger (but a bit stiff) and able to walk tall (that part is figurative – I actually hobble gingerly, trying to avoid pressure on my blisters). I found myself thinking, “Next year, I'll do this differently” and then catching myself. Next year??? Am I nuts? I knew I wouldn't be walking again in 2009 because the event is planned for the day of my mother's 70th birthday celebration. Except that when she found out about the conflict, mom offered to reschedule her party, and my son's girlfriend and her mom offered to join me as a team. It looks like I may do this again. Many thanks to everyone who made this possible. If any of my JOTW friends would like to contribute to the dream of a world without breast cancer, please visit www.the3day.org, click Donate Now and type my name in the search field. Thank you.
