“Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow.”

~Edward Sandford Martin

“It has been an unchallengeable American doctrine that cranberry sauce, a pink goo with overtones of sugared tomatoes, is a delectable necessity of the Thanksgiving board and that turkey is uneatable without it.”

~Alistair Cooke

*** Welcome to the JOTW network.

Here we go again with another week and another edition of the JOTW Newsletter. This is the often-talked-about, sometimes copied, but totally unique weekly publication, pretty basic, nothing fancy, down-to-earth, non-pretentious, but still pretty great you have to admit, still publishing after all these years, award-winning JOTW networking newsletter for professional communicators…like you, dedicated to the positive unanticipated consequences of networking, or as we call it, “nedworking.”

Hi, Ned. Unbelievable! It is absolutely amazing to me that, among the thousands of communicators who receive your newsletter — yes, the one you do on your own time, for no pay, as a huge service — there are people who are clueless about what it takes to produce this newsletter week in and week out, not to mention rude. My other thoughts for JB (Hi, Ned, Please note that the link you listed for job #43 is not very useful. It goes to a page that says, “This job is not available for viewing.” Please check before you post these things. Thanks! J.B.) aren't printable.

Note to JB: The responsibilities of a GOOD communications person include being resourceful, being smart enough to research things out on your own, being courteous, and being appreciative when someone provides you and the others in your community a major service. Thus, one would expect you, JB, to be able to figure this out!

Ned, please know that I — and huge numbers of folks in the communications community — appreciate you and all you do. Have a wonderful holiday season. I hope that many good things come your way in 2011! Best, Dee

*** Thanksgiving football:

Of course Thanksgiving is all about football, and high school football rivalries are played out on Thanksgiving in many places in our country, not the least of them in New England, where Thanksgiving rivalries go back decades.

My high school, Newton High School (now called Newton North High School, which recently moved into its new $200 million building…that’s right, $200 MILLION!) plays Brookline every thanksgiving, and has since 1894.

Newton vs. Brookline…and why we’re better – Newton, Massachusetts – Newton TAB

http://www.wickedlocal.com/newton/highlight/x1392204489/Newton-vs-Brookline-and-why-we-re-better

Newton has won 11 of the last 13 contests. Overall, it's pretty even at 55-53 and three ties.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_high_school_football_rivalries_(100_years%2B)

Newton-Brookline isn't the oldest public high school rivalry, or the oldest high school Thanksgiving Day football rivalry in Eastern Massachusetts, in the Bay State or even in New England. That belongs to next-door Wellesley High School-Needham High School. Beginning in 1882, The annual gridiron encounter between Wellesley High School and Needham High School in Massachusetts holds the national record as the oldest Thanksgiving Day football rivalry in the nation among public high schools.
