*** From Jayne Lytel:

Hi Ned,

Don't know if this is out of the realm, but thought I'd ask. I've been

unemployed since Thanksgiving and the recession has forced me to live

with my ex husband, who also lost his job. I can't afford to move out

but have an opportunity for a job that would award me a condo for two

months in Ocean City and blog about Delmarva for the Delmarva Low-Impact

Tourism Experiences (DLITE). And I'd get paid. While the judges will

pick their top five, a wildcard slot is reserved for the person whose

YouTube video posted on the Host Our Coast site gets the most vote. If

possible, could you reach out to your readers and have them Cast Their

Vote for me? It's a small way for everyone to give back. The URL is

Thanks if you can help.

*** As I was boarding the flight from Key West to Miami, I sat just in front of a man wearing a beret with a round black carrying case that said “Ziljian” on it in white letters. “Where’s the rest of your drums?” I asked. He smile and said something about being back on the ship. He had been a performer on a Carnival Lines cruise ship, but the gig was over after just five days. “What, they couldn’t take a joke?” I asked him. “He smiled and chuckled. He shook his head, but in an approving sort of way. “I came back to the ship and they took my badges,” he said. Then he told me that the real problem was allergies. His name was Christopher, or so said his nametag that he showed me, and he was in the Show Band cast. He was going back to New Orleans, although Katrina still was limiting opportunities for performers. He told me that the musicians played, but that there was pre-recorded music, too, which made it difficult for the drummer. As we landed, he looked at me and smiles. “Couldn’t take a joke. That’s good.”

*** Pirates of the Arrow:

Ned, the Order of the Arrow section that provided your t-shirt of the week must be fans of your piracy report (see attached patch). It caught my (un-patched) eye because I had done my OA ordeal at Camp Snyder a week earlier.

Keep up the great work.
