Deal no Deal game: at Passport Control

Quote: We should mention, however - as the the article also notes - that "any challengingRead More activity that requires you to learn a new skill, from basket weaving to ballroom dancing, counts." _____ Very true! The specific advantage of learning a new language is that it is practical in our multicultural society!

Julie, you are quite right! And we like the comment of one of our local "senior" users:Read More But GamesforLanguage is nothing short of spectacular – optimally suited for grown-ups attempting to learn a new language. Although I’m still at the early stages, I must say that your overall approach seems ideal for ‘‘senior minds’ – the light-hearted vibe perhaps the perfect milieu for what might otherwise be seen as a rather onerous exercise. Some years back I used the Pimsleur German audio tapes, and although they were fairly good for the technology of the time, they can’t compare to your playful challenges and visuals. The more light-hearted the better!

"jim" when you say "if you search the internet or consult dog experts about the bestRead More large dogs, etc., etc." you did not give a link, which makes it clear that this is all in your own mind. You are fearful of a dog breed that some have vilified. I suggest you search again on the internet and find other sources so that you may educate yourself with truthful information. Here's a link you will probably not like: http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/americanstaffordshire.htm

#lucia. The blogger created that title. The journalist that wrote the reference article onlyRead More mentions "dog attack" in the headline. And in the fourth paragraph Staffordshire Terrier, which most people (including myself before this blog) don't even know are a pit bull. That is very far from the "media sensationalism" you pit bull defenders always claim exists.

Lucia. You argue like a child. I lived for a time in Denmark and Germany if you must know. EvenRead More the French only allow pure bred pit bulls in their country. They are smart enough to realize the bad bloodlines all these rescue people have promoted.

As we obtained this information about 8:15 PM tonight from multiple sources in person and on theRead More telephone, it is wise to keep in mind that it is raw data. There is also a strong suggestion that Robert Skerry from the previous cable advisory board may head a new disciplinary commission to investigate Medford Community Cablevision, Inc. after revelations were made public that the Mayor reportedly found "disturbing."

Julie Kelleher endorsing and enabling Arthur Deluca, who bashes and harasses his own motherRead More allegedly. Shameful. That poor woman having to endure that leech. Deluca leeched off of the access station as well.

You had me at the picture of the smoking microwave. If I saw that on my counter, I'd go back to bed.Read More LOL!

Look at the "Access producer" trying to pump up his own ego - you gave noRead More "lecture" at City hall. you got up to the podium ayat a City Council meeting and gave your OPINION about final cut pro. There was no scheduled 'lecture" with you being the speaker people were in attendence to hear. They were there to watch and/or speak their on minds at a City Council Meeting. They were there to see their government at work - not to see you, Joe. You really are becoming more & more delusional, aren't you? I am so glad of that. It's a rainy Tuesday night as I read this and you are more entertaining than what is currently being broadcast. By the way, IF that ED from Malden actually comes to Medford to speak, please be sure that you let the people know that his idea of public access and free speech is to censor a veteran and ask for their resignation because he did not like what they had to say. I'm sure the Medford residents will want to know this about him. Maybe even the vets will march in protest against him - you never can quite be sure about these things. Oh - and that TV station you are "developing"... how? You haven't been hired or assigned by McGlynn to do so. You have no money to work with. The Public Access money the City has is not for you, Joe. That money can ONLY be used to RUN public access - pay for rent and salaries & such. it's not BUILLDOUT money. to ise it in that fashion would be embezzlement. Are you announcing here your intentions to embezzle money from the City, Joe? Gee, with Father Chip rumored (by you) to have resigned the public access panel and with you planning to misuse the public access money, I think I'll take his place as the chair of the committee to make doubly sure none of that happens. They couldn't pick a better replacement for him than me, Joe. See you at their next meeting. Try not to get out of order please.
Me, looking at things in Stowe, Vermont

Great story & great life lesson, Julie. I remember when I covered some of the Summer Concerts atRead More City Hall for TV3. When I got home my mom would ask "how was the concert?" I'd tell her, "I don't know yet - I'll let you know once I watch the footage." She never understood my point - though I was being a wise-ass. But the truth is as you say. When I was filming/taping something, my world was a tunnel-vision view the size of a baseball card (or in my particular case, a monster card - different strokes & all that). I so much prefer LIVING life, participating in an active manner rather than the passive voyeuristic world of the photographer. But I DO like my old TV programs - God Bless the invention of DVDs!

We observed this phenomenon at MOMA - people walked up to works of art looking into their phones,Read More snapped and waked away without once looking directly at the painting. What was the point of going to MOMA? They could have just bought an art book...

don't think its a new phenomenon, just the technology has changed. How many of you have parents orRead More grandparents who have volumes of pictures in those old photograph binders. think they where saying the same about them when they broke out those old cameras? I remember my grandparents coming home from their latest trips with slide carousels (to many to count) to share their trip with us. Not much has changed really except the tools at hand

I know a doctor who was FALSELY accused of sexual assault by Elizabeth Warren! It's too bad, he wasRead More the best Veterinarian in town.

According to the American Temperament Society, which tests individual dogs of all breeds as far asRead More stability, Pit Bull Terriers consistently rank within the top 5 breeds as the most stable. When I was growing up, we always had Pits, no one ever got hurt. I have been bitten by a poodle. As for horses in NYC. The horses get hurt & they are, for the most part treated badly. Please get facts before writing.
Joe Viglione April 15, 2014 at 08:09 am
What gives me pause, Arthur, is that Julie T. Kelleher's accomplices (how the public views them) areRead More not reasonable people. We've watched them cheat the Medford residents for decades, and Kelleher aligning with the frauds and cheats speaks volumes about her unethical and unscrupulous way of conducting herself in public. And that photo! Oy Vey!
Joe Viglione April 15, 2014 at 01:24 pm
It's called inurement. Wonder if Julie Kelleher was investigated by the board of directors of St.Read More Francis for stealing from a church. That's the rumor. Here's a fact: 'DON'T FUCKING BOTHER ME, I'M ON THE PHONE.' - Arthur Deluca screaming bloody murder at his own mother, Rose Deluca, as alleged by a family friend. Elder basher Art Deluca harassed Pat Fiorello to death; is he looking to give his mother a heart attack so he can inherit her home?
Rick Catino April 16, 2014 at 12:03 pm
Really nice language Joe. Have you read the Terms or are you exempt? I tagged your post asRead More inappropriate but it seems no one at the patch seems to care. Lucky you....
Joe Viglione April 15, 2014 at 07:48 am
Julie the Jarhead Kelleher talking about herself again. Is she on SSI and is MCC TV3 paying her toRead More harass critics? If so, is Kelleher committing Social Security Fraud?
Joe Viglione April 15, 2014 at 07:50 am
OK, let's get this straight, so to speak. Julie the Jarhead Kelleher brags that she instigates andRead More initiates and that she loves to be a "troublemaker" (and she's not the only person who used that specific word to describe her). She lashes out at a man she has never met, clearly being rude, and then tries to blame her victim with psycho-babble from an obvious psycho: "[1] For example, a person who is rude may accuse other people of being rude. " Julie talking about herself again...as well as Arthur Alan Deluca.
