*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Hi, Ned!

I live in the smalltown of Portsmouth, Ohio, where VERY limited career

opportunities are available. I'm looking to connect with anyone who needs a

writer – either in my area, or via telecommute. I am not interested in

relocating at this time. I am a college graduate with a BA in English and

communications, and a minor in journalism, and I am exploring grad school

options now. I'm a full-time writer for my local newspaper, and I enjoy that

very much but I'm curious what other opportunities may be out there. I am a

member of the Society of Professional Journalists, where I serve on the

National Public Outreach Committee and have played a leadership role in

assembling a local chapter. I have further experience in journalism, public

relations, news releases, web design, graphic design, newsletters, creative

writing, scriptwriting, published comic book writing, copywriting and

editing and much more. If anyone is interested in seeing my samples or

hearing more, I would love to hear from them. I have worked from my home in

Ohio for clients in California, New York, Philadelphia, Michigan, Florida

and others. I am very capable of telecommuting-assignments, and have proven

successful and reliable. I look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks!

*** Newton North 15, Brookline 7: Tigers best archrivals in double-OT classic

“It's gotta be one of the great games we've had at the school in a long time and Brookline deserves a lot of credit hanging in there the way they did,'' said North coach Peter Capodilupo, who played for North in the mid 60s and served as a Tiger assistant coach late 70s before taking over as head coach in 1984. Capodilupo improved his Thanksgiving head coaching record to 13-12.

(Peter Capodilupo was my high school English teacher.)

*** Mumbai:

Dear JOTW-ers,

Thank you all for the many emails, tweets, and Facebook notes of concern and support I received over the past few days, while the Mumbai attacks were taking place. As those of you who followed my live-tweeting of the events know, I was consumed by what was transpiring in my country of origin almost as soon as it started, until the last seige at the Taj ended. Like all of you, I could not believe what I was seeing and hearing; like all of you I am heartbroken by the devastation. In case I have not been able to respond to you personally yet, I apologize, and I found out late on Friday night (EST) that my family and friends are alive and safe, some having had extremely close escapes.

More than ever, over these past few days, I have seen just how strong the power of human connection is, regardless of race, geography or creed. And I am greatly touched and moved by the overwhelming affection you have shown, towards myself and so many others, all around the world. Since the relaxed Thanksgiving I was looking forward to took a backseat, I am taking this opportunity to thank you, each and every one of you, for being amazing human beings; for being part of my extended family; for everything you do, day in and day out, to bring people closer together, whether at work or at play. I am blessed to be part of this incredible network. Thank you.

Hi Ed,

You are my hero. (Well, one of them.) Your JOTW newsletter is not only helpful but also hilarious, as is your Web site. Please holler if you're ever looking for a dynamic addition to your team of communications professionals. (If so, I promise I'll never use the word “holler” again.) My credentials are summarized on my page. At the moment I'm doing consulting work, at home, in pajamas. Frankly, it's not the dream I always thought it would be.

You've been something of a “mentor from afar” to me during the past several months. As such, I'd be honored to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn.

Wishing you joy during this holiday season,

*** What’s the best Eggnog:

This time of year I enjoy a little egg nog. Not a lot, because in my house it’s gone before I can get much. I really miss Bergey’s Colonial Custard, an egg-nog like thick dairy drink from the now defunct Bergey’s Dairy in the Tidewater area. I think those store-brand eggnogs are just okay, and the canned stuff tastes, well, canned. The best supermarket eggnog is Southern Comfort eggnog, made by H. P. Hood, and available in Giant Supermarkets here in the D.C. area. I’d be interested in hearing what your opinion is about eggnog, good or bad, and what is the hands-down best eggnog in the world.

If you want to nominate your own concoction, we need recipes and pictures.

This U.K. super group gave a shining glimpse of their dark side against the wall of Pompeii in a 1972 film.

*** Last week’s Rock n’ Roll trivia contest:

This group, originally formed to raise funds to support the Tottenham Hotspurs (Spurs) Football Club in London, was the first “British Invasion” band to tour the U.S., and had more appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show than any other U.K. group.

Mary Dixon’s answer:

answer is The Beatles, of course.

“Over And Over”)

Marge Kumaki’s answer:

Ned,

I have to tell you, your rock 'n roll trivia really makes my morning! But c'mon, make the questions a little harder.

While most people would say the Beatles or Stones–the right answer is the Dave Clark Five (DC5).

*** From Ken Frager in Baltimore:

Ned,

Thanks again for another great issue. I noticed the last listing for bell

ringers and it occurs to me, as I am doing quite a bit of work here in

Baltimore for the Salvation Army, that bell ringers are needed in most

communities for the Red Kettle Campaign. There are local Salvation Army

affiliates around the country (and the world frankly). You can find your

local affiliate at http://www.uss.salvationarmy.org/uss/www_uss.nsf. And if

you don't want to sit out in the cold ringing a bell, you can sponsor an

online red kettle at onlineredkettle.org or on your Face Book page. Contact

me and I will help you figure out how to do it. Hopefully this isn't too

self-serving to support my client, but every bit of help is needed,

especially this year.

Thanks for all you do Ned.

*** Biggest game of the year!

Whether you went to West Point or Annapolis or not, the service rivalry of the Army-Navy football game is intense. Whether either team is any good or not makes no difference. This is the game the players play for. Navy lost to Army several years in a row by a miniscule margin, usually decided by a field goal, or a missed one anyway. Army recently set new NCAA record for most losses on a single season. They have struggled to beat anyone, although they did win some games this year. Army (3-8), has defeated LSU, Tulane and Eastern Michigan. The Black Knights lost to Rutgers 30-3, a team Navy beat. Army also lost to Air Force, another team Navy has beat That means no matter what happens next Saturday, Navy will keep the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy at Annapolis, where it’s been for the past few years. Navy’s 7-4 record includes losses to Pitt, Notre Dame and undefeated Ball State. The fact that Navy is going to the inaugural Eagle Bank Bowl game this year means nothing. It all comes down to Army-Navy. , Saturday, Dec. 6.

One should have enormous respect for both teams, knowing none of these student-athletes are playing for the NFL scouts. For the seniors on both teams, their football playing days end with this game. It all comes to this. Then, they are go on to receive commissions as officers in the military, and serve their nation around the world in dangerous, difficult and demanding assignments. You cannot watch this game without choosing a team to root for. As a 24-year veteran of the U.S. Navy, I have chosen.

*** A guy walks into a sports bar wearing an Army Football jersey and carrying a cat that also has an Army jersey on with a little Army helmet on his head too.

The guy says to the bartender, “Can my cat and I watch the Army-Navy game here? My TV at home broke down and my cat and I always watch the game together.”

The bartender replies, “Normally, cats wouldn't be allowed in my bar, but it's not very busy in here right now, so you and the cat can have a seat at the end of the bar. But, if there's any trouble with you or the cat, I'll have to ask you to leave.”

The guy agrees, and he and his cat start watching the game. Pretty soon Army manages to kick a field goal and the excited cat jumps up on the bar, walks all the way down and gives everyone a high five.

The bartender says, “Hey, that's pretty cool! What does he do for an Army touchdown?”

The guy answers, “I don't know, I've only had him for 3 years.”

*** Once there was a season when the Navy and Army football teams were not scheduled to play each other. It seemed so unusual, that the coaches of both academies got together and decided that there should be some sort of competition between the 2 teams because of their great rivalry. They decided on a week long ice-fishing competition. The team who caught the most fish at the end of the week would win.

So on a cold northern South Dakota lake (a neutral site so no one would whine about home field advantage), they began their contest.

The 1st day, after 8 hours of fishing, Navy had caught 100 fish and Army had 0.

At the end of the 2nd day, Navy had caught 200 fish and Army had 0.

That evening the Army coach got his team together and said, “I suspect some kind of cheating is taking place.” The next morning he dressed one of his players in blue and white and sent him over to the camp to act as a spy.

At the end of the day, the spy came back to report to the coach. The coach asked, “Well, how about it, are they cheating?”

“They sure are,” the Army player reported, “They're cutting holes in the ice!”

*** West Point’s coach gave his battered Army football team a few days off. Several decided to go down to Panama City Beach for fun and relaxation.

Coach saw the players the first day back at practice and asked about their vacation.

“Not good coach,” said the players. “We never made it to the beach.”

“Why not,” the coach asked, “car trouble?”

“No,” they replied, “every few miles down the interstate we saw signs that said, 'Exit, Clean Restrooms'. You have no idea how many restrooms we cleaned between West Point and Panama City.”

*** How many Army Cadets does it take to change a tire? Just one, but he gets four hours credit and it counts as a lab science!
