“People of different religions and cultures live side by side in almost every part of the world, and most of us have overlapping identities which unite us with very different groups. We can love what we are, without hating what – and who – we are not. We can thrive in our own tradition, even as we learn from others, and come to respect their teachings.”

— Kofi Annan

*** Jam-packed JOTW:

Dear Ned,

I so enjoyed this week's JOTW. So much packed into one issue! It started off great when I immediately knew the answer to the rock trivia question – a first! Thanks for the link to the photos from the Army-Navy (or Navy-Army, depending on your slant) game – good to see folks fired up for a little diversion from our troubles.

Thanks, too, for the reminder about Santa Lucia – I happen to know the story and traditions – I especially love pepperkaker. The tradition is to make them as small as possible, so they resemble peppercorns; hence the name. I chuckled over the alternative job selection, interested to learn that the ranch would find it “attractive” to hire someone with a pilot's license and plane. I expected to see “send photo of plane” but the joke stopped short.

Thanks also for the job postings, quotes, adventures, jokes, piracy reports – everything but the weather forecast, and sometimes you include that too! I guess what I am saying is thanks for all you do for the ned-work. I appreciate that my Mondays come complete with all this…and so much more.

Have a blessed holiday. cj

*** Rock ‘n roll trivia:

This mop-top band from Liverpool recorded “Love Me Do” at Abbey Road Studios in London. Who played the drums? Careful, this is a trick question.

(Answer? The answer is posted now on the JOTW webpage. Visit www.nedsjotw.com. Read previous questions and answers at http://www.nedsjotw.com/blog/JOTWRocknRollTriviaQuiz.)

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

The ZZ Top Eliminator hot rod became a legend by appearing in several rock music videos. ZZ Top frontman Billy F. Gibbons had Don Thelan's Buffalo Motor Cars shop build him a chopped 1933 Ford in the early '80s that would soon be known as the Eliminator coupe. Underneath was a straightforward Pete and Jake's chassis with a dropped tube axle and four-bar suspen¬sion up front and a Ford nine-inch out back.

Power was provided by a simple but capable 350-cid Chevy V-8 with a Camaro Z-28 hydraulic cam, a polished intake manifold with a single four-barrel carb, and a Turbo 350 transmission.

A painting of the coupe was featured on the cover of ZZ Top's multiplatinum 1983 album Eliminator, and the real car was immortalized on the small screen in four music videos that were run in heavy rotation on MTV.

Each video featured a Cinderella-story vignette in which an earnest but unfairly downtrodden teen is swept away and “saved” by the arrival of beautiful girls in the Eliminator. The members of ZZ Top granted the protagonist a magical set of keys with a stylized ZZ key chain, and the hot rod appeared as a magical fantasy object.

*** From Dan Huvane:

Capt Ned, your math threw me! I had the correct answer of ZZ Top in mind immediately when you described the car…but then read the assertion that this band had 45+ years together. Knowing that ZZ couldn't have more than 40 at the most, I had to wonder which band of the early 60's had the same car.

Dan Huvane

(You are correct. I thought I had fixed that to say 40 years, since the band came together in 1969. My bad.)

No worries…in fact, I must add the reason I knew when ZZ Top was formed. While a young Marine 2ndLt in 1997, I found myself in New Orleans for the Packers-Patriots Super Bowl. I managed to score a ticket to see my favorite group, the one and only Allman Brothers Band, at the House of Blues, and stood in front of the stage with my jaw open the whole time. For the encore, who should join them but all of ZZ Top! I don't recall what they played, but there were some sick jams. I later wondered which group was senior, and learned that both bands formed the same year, 1969.

*** The JOTW Holiday Blessing:

Each year I ask my best man, Pat Tracy, to deliver a blessing for us. I admire him for his service on the sea, and to God. This is not about patriotism, or a holiday, but to me it is a fitting time for everyone everywhere to pause and ponder, and give thanks as well as just give of ourselves. Neither Pat nor I want to offend anyone who thinks differently, but we do not mind if it sparks some dialog. This is not an attempt by me to impose any religious belief, but it is an overt attempt to reflect on that which we have, and that we can do to make next year a better and brighter prospect for those we care about.

Ned Lundquist

Here is Pat's blessing:

Last year, I challenged JOTW readers to do what they could to make the world a better place. Many responded by sharing activities and projects in which they are involved, which aim to do just that. Some chose not to respond publicly, while others took issue with the propriety of issuing such a challenge in this venue. The various responses were honest, forthright, and (as far as I can determine) genuinely reflected the writers’ thoughts and feelings.

As we approach the traditional time for the JOTW blessing this year, we can indeed recall those people who have been helped by our efforts and the involvement of our coworkers in the past twelve months. The evening news, however, reminds us of different things… darker things, which prove that all is not “right with the world”. In other words, incidents which remind us that we who have the ability to reach out to others less fortunate than ourselves, must continue to do so whenever we can.

But what is it that makes our hearts and our thoughts turn to the idea of “blessing” at this time of year? Whether or not you call yourself ‘religious’, ‘observant’, or one of a host of other words describing spiritual awareness and practice… everyone who has given a Christmas present, sent a card, or indeed dated a document with the year “2008” lately… has acknowledged the historical fact of the birth of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem so many years ago. Our gift-giving (blessing) emulates both the supreme gift to humanity of God sending His Son, and the contemporary acknowledgement by the Magi, “wise men” (scientifically learned men) who brought the Christ child gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. We in the USA are reminded of these facts by Congressional action designating Christmas as a Federal holiday on 26 June 1870.

I have borrowed some explanatory notes from www.patriotism.org:

The best known of the federal holidays is most certainly Christmas Day. Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ a prominent religious figure of Christianity, although not all Christian sects celebrate the holiday and many other non-Christians celebrate Christmas as a cultural holiday. Christmas Day is designated as December 25th, though many don’t believe this to be the actually day of the birth of Jesus.

Christmas Eve, December 24th, is also a day of celebration for many with numerous events and observations that lead up to Christmas Day. Christmas became an official federal holiday in 1870 when it was enacted by President Grant. As early as the 1930’s people began expressing concerns over the commercialization of Christmas when President Delano Roosevelt wanted to move Thanksgiving forward to make the holiday shopping season longer in hopes of boosting the economy.

Today new controversy has risen with many feeling that having Christmas Day as a federal holiday violates the separation of church and state. The argument began in the 1980’s but has been repeatedly overruled in courts and remains as a federal holiday. Today there are many recognizable elements to Christmas celebrations, among the most notable being Christmas trees, exchanging gifts, Santa Clause and the nativity scene.

Copyright © 2008 Patriotism.org

Our ability to bestow “good” on others is a direct benefit of God’s graciousness to us. He has given us the talents and abilities to do what we do, to know right from wrong, to discern when a person is downtrodden or oppressed, and needs that help. It is fitting that we thank Him for bestowing these blessings on us, and enabling us to pass them to others.

This year, we will have unprecedented (in most of our lifetimes) opportunity to help neighbors, friends and total strangers who have been affected by the economic downturn. Let us thank God – the Source of all blessing – for what He has given us, and be willing to share them with those in need.

May each in the JOTW community enjoy a wonderful Christmas, and a blessed 2009.

Pat Tracy

*** From Barb Puffer, ABC:

To Ned, Pat and all my friends in name or spirit, God bless in this holiday season and I wish you health and happiness in 2009.

Barbara Puffer MA, ABC

*** From Howie Schaffer:

Geez! That was a thumb in the nose to anyone not a Christian. You do have some Jewish subscribers and I am sure many of other faiths. None of us are trying to steal Christmas away. It is a wonderful tradition. But it is not the only one celebrated this time of year. Seems to me that Pat and you both need a challenge to open your minds and hearts to the reality that your faith is your own, folks are not trying to steal your religion or your December spotlight. But giving a gift with the word “2008” on it is hardly a recognition of the “historical fact” of Jesus's birth. I'm not offended by your note, but sad that you are so publicly closed-minded at a time in our nation's history when the strength of our differences is uniting us in common cause, not dividing us. My holidays will always be plural and more joyful and faithful as a result.

-Howie Schaffer

(The annual blessing is intended to be inclusive. That said, I do not tell Pat what to say.)

*** From Lindsey Brothers:

Dear Ned and Pat,

Thank you very much for your wonderful email. In addition to helping others, which I am very fond of doing, I also think that a simple smile and “hello” or simply holding the door for somebody is a warm gesture that can be done every day. I also want to pass on a Happy Hanukkah to all of those (including myself) that will soon celebrate this wonderful holiday. Thank you very much!!

Best Regards,

Lindsey Brothers

*** From Pat Valdata:

Thank you, Ned and Pat.

May 2009 bring blessings to us all, especially the blessing of peace.

A little prosperity wouldn't hurt, either!

Pat

*** Susan Heitsch:

Merry Christmas and heaps of blessings to you and your family in the New Year.

*** From Reggie Sanders:

Dear Ned:

I am blessed to be gainfully employed but there was a time when that was not the case. Like many of us I was experienced, competent and came with great references and a good level of professional success. Of course none of that means a hill of beans unless you can actually get-the-break. Oh, it can be unbearable at times. I don't care how qualified you think you are, how much success you've had or what your reputation may be, when you're out there looking hope, faith and courage is all you have. Any of it can easily be broken.

If you are unemployed please hold on to your faith as you will find something. I know this because I was in the exact spot and it worked out. It had been 8-months and was down to my last penny when the phone rang. It was the HR person and this was the job that I wanted. It must have taken her an hour before getting around to the I was the “chosen one” part. I can only remember saying, yes. Once I was off the phone I was overtaken with emotion.

What I know for sure is that those of us “with” a job are “obligated” to help those who are without one. It is our duty because someone took the time to help us. We also have to understand what “help” really means. Remember when folks passed along contacts that never really panned out? Do you know how it feels when a potential lead answers the phone with, “Now, who referred you to m e?” Do you recall how it felt to be sent in search of a position that really never existed in the first place? Yep, we have all been there. So, when it is your turn to help be sure to give real contacts and real leads. It doesn't matter if it doesn't work out because all we really want is a shot.

So, if your confidence is low and your bank account is suffering make a promise to yourself to always remember how it feels to be in that position. And when the inevitable call comes from a friend or stranger who is in search of a job, make it your business to drop everything and reach out to them in a very meaningful way. It will make you feel wonderful and better yet, whatever you put out there will eventually come back to you.

Hope, faith and courage is all we have. Stay strong and most of all, pay it forward!

Courage!

Reggie Sanders

*** From Amy Holmes:

Hey Ned,

LOVE IT! Merry Christmas and thanks for sending this. Not sure what the job market is like in DC, but here in Colorado Springs, there are people really hurting who are unable to find work who really need the work. Thank you again for JOTW which is a great blessing to many. I remember when you started JOTW, which came out your spirit of sharing with others. May God bless you in the coming year and all of our JOTW friends.

Ned,

I admire your courage to live out loud in our oppressively

politically-correct culture.

I applaud your right – and Pat Tracy's right – to declare your beliefs

in the marketplace of ideas and to be equally respected alongside those

who choose to believe nothing.

As a fellow American and Christ-follower, I am inspired to be more

intentional in living out my wonderful blessings.

Merry Christmas,

Deb

Ned,

You can help our wounded military personnel recuperate. While Ned's been helping raise money for the needed van in Washington, other groups have been helping in other ways. In Kentucky, the Ashland Inc. Retirees Club, Ashland, Ky., has held two drives to obtain “gently used or new” DVDs and VHS movies that are then shipped to the Wounded Warrior Battalion at Fort Knox. More than 1,000 movies have been shipped from the Ashland, Ky, area. You can do this, too. Check with a military hospital in your area and see if the Wounded Warrior program needs help — just a movie to make a day go by faster can make a difference!
