Pause Ponder and Pitch It Right In Here


You know, you really need balls to be a catcher in major league baseball. 

Well that was my take on this week's pic. Let's see what some others came up with...


Ever wonder how baby baseballs are born?
Michael Wolfe @ Predator Press



As my father always told me "be the ball".
VMax



Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez was never the same, even after they took the stitches out.
Nicky @ We Work For Cheese



Which ball am I supposed to keep my eye on?
Paula @ How to Become a Cat Lady...Without the Cats


And our winner this week...

After surgery, John Kruk still played despite the one ball he had left being swollen.
Skeeter @ Dead Dog

Way to keep your eye on the ball, Skeeter. Congratulations. You be hangin' with dufus this week. Wanna head on down to Toronto with me and take in a Blue Jays game? They're currently in last place in the American League, east. Maybe if they changed to this guy's uniform they'd have more success.

Thanks to everyone who played along this week. Be sure and join us Wednesday for another edition of Pause Ponder and Pun.

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
