*** From Rob Hallam:

Ned, from a long time follower and some-time poster. I work for Collective Brands now and one of our major brands, Payless ShoeSource, is giving away $1M in shoes to children of families in need this holiday season. We're doing it through local U.S. 501c3 charities. Any interested charity can apply at www.paylessgives.com. The window is narrow because we want to get the coupons distributed in time for the holidays — charities must apply by 11/21 and we'll only review the first 5,000. If you can give this visibility I'd much appreciate it. Thanks so much for any help you can provide.

*** From Colonel Connie Eckard, ABC, IABC Fellow, USAFR (Ret.), on Ned’s experience interviewing candidates in Milwaukee for Service Academy congressional appointments:

Ned: Isn't this the greatest experience? I have been on the local Congressman's three-member interview panel for most of the past dozen years. It never ceases to amaze me the quality young people that we get to talk with. My armed forces are going to be in VERY good hands in the years ahead! One of the questions I always ask them is whether they have also applied for an ROTC scholarship (which is a tougher competition). Some have; most have not. Happy veteran's day! –Connie

(The thing is, Connie, you and I wouldn't have a chance against these kids.)

Ned, I could not even think about getting in the front door of dear old Texas A&M today. I'm so grateful that I snuck in (and out) when I did.

*** From Pat Valdata:

Ned,

Thank you for your many years of service to the people of this country. You and other veterans deserve far more than a single day of recognition, but I am glad that we have Veterans Day to honor all the servicemen and women who keep us safe.

*** Freedom of the seas:

I embarked on USS Freedom (LCS 1) for the first leg of her post-commissioning Great Lakes transit from Milwaukee to Cleveland. It was thrilling to be underway on a ship I have been involved with since 2002, and under the command of Cmdr. Don Gabrielson, an officer whom I respect and admire. Navy Time reporter Phil Ewing was my room mate. Here’s his blog:

http://militarytimes.com/blogs/notebook/

I will tell you that we achieved 40-plus knots on several occasions. This, too, was thrilling. Watching the bow wave and the rooster tail was impressive, as was the wind over the fantail. The crew is small, well trained, highly motivated, and the kind of Sailors you like to have on your ship.

We arrived in Cleveland, tied up next to the Cleveland Browns Stadium and the Rock and Roll Hall of fame. Upon leaving the ship I looked for a way off the pier. A police captain gave me a ride to the HOF. Later I took a cab to the airport, driving past the Anthony J. Celebrezze Federal Building, actually on Rock and Roll Avenue, which as all military people know is where our pay comes from.

At the airport, my 3:52 USAirways flight to Philly for my connection to D.C. was fouled up somehow, so they sent mew to Continental for a non-stop, which I actually was able to push up top an even earlier non-stop. Upon seeing my ID, the ticket counter agent thanked me for my service.

*** Iron-Chef campout:

The Scouts wanted to do a cooking weekend, so we conducted an Iron Chef Campout at the Camp Wilson area of Pohick Bay Regional Park. The adults gave a cooking demonstration for Saturday lunch, showing the boys several different ways to cook on a campout or backpacking trip. We roasted marinated steak shiskabobs overt the coals (served with couscous), made an easy one pot ramen noodle dinner with sausage on a backpaching stove, made a big Gypsy stew on the camp stove and a spinach quiche, and I made Guadeloupe pie and pineapple upside down cake with Dutch ovens.. There was plenty of food for everyone, it was all great, and all came out at the same time. For dinner, we had a bunch of Webelos show up with their parents, and the boys served us their Iron-Chef entrée entries. The Dragon Patrol made an awesome Lasagna, and a cake (singing happy Birthday to Tom); which the Cuddling Pony Patrol made a Rover Pie and stuffed pork chops as a foil meal.

While conducting an afternoon “Lost Scout” drill, we had Tornado Warnings and a torrential downpour. I left the corner of my tent open, which resulted in some standing water, but nothing my sleeping bag couldn’t absorb. Luckily I had my fleece liner which kept me warm and dry inside the bag that night.

The adults sampled, but we also made a chicken pot pie in the Dutch oven and Tom made a Black Forest dup cake, said by many to be the best of the best. The dinner was a tie between the Dragons and Ponies, but the Ponies had a more ambbitous and nutitous breakfast, and won the 2008 Iron Chef award.

*** Rock ‘n roll trivia:

Boston's WBCN-FM was a pioneer in alternative “Underground Radio” music format, going all the way back to 1969. Charles Laquidara was a WBCN personality with his morning show, The Big Mattress, on the air in the Boston market from 1969–1995, and is featured as one of the influential radio personalities at the Rock and Roll Hall of fame. Laquidara was hired at WBCN to replace a DJ who left the station to join an up-and-coming band in the Boston music scene that achieved considerable success. Who was the DJ and what band was he the frontman for? (Bonus: The DJ/singer had a hot wife. Who was she?)

Job Brief Broadband and mobile technology. 18 million customers. And one of the most recognised brands in the UK. That’s O2. Communication isn’t just what we do – it’s our whole strategy. We make sure everyone here knows how important they are and the contribution they make. That way, with the support of our people, we’re able to achieve the things we aim for.

Internal communication is especially important in Customer Service. Although we already lead our sector, there’s more work to do. In fact, we want to be world-class. Making the grade depends on how we talk to our people. And how we explain the changes we’re making. As our Senior Communication Manager, this will be down to you. The strategy you devise will affect 6,000 people at four sites in Scotland and the north of England. So you’ll need to be experienced and ready to lead a ten-strong team. Together, you’ll build strong relationships with our Customer Service group leaders and manage a programme of communication training and development.

O2 is fast-moving. So we need someone who’s sharp, articulate and ready to thrive in our business. Strategic thinking will be critical – and technical communication skills will need to be rock solid. But to really excel, you’ll need a talent for leading projects that bring about change.
