I would like to thank The JCC on the Palisades for their lovely article in this month’s publication. Working with the sweetest women, Hagit Tal, Rochelle Lazarus and Rebecca Seeman, to put this piece together was an extra bonus! When someone is as passionate about running as I am only good things can come out of the dedication that is involved. It is one of the main reasons I started my blog. Living a healthy lifestyle is what I strive to achieve in my life. If I can inspire half the people that cross my path in any way it will only make my efforts all the more rewarding. Check out my latest post for details.

JEMAIL: McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973) shared a joke


McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973)

I think you’ll appreciate this joke!

Obama, Hillary and Trump are standing at the throne of heaven. God looks at them and says, “Before granting you a place at my side, I must ask you what you have learned, what you believe in.”God asks Obama first: “What do you believe?”

He thinks long and hard, looks God in the eye, and says, “I believe in hard work, and in staying true to family and friends. I believe in giving. I was lucky, but I always tried to do right by my countrymen”.
God can’t help but see the essential goodness of Obama , and offers him a seat to his left.

Then God turns to Hillary and says, “What do you believe?”

Hillary says, “I believe passion, discipline, courage and honor are the fundamentals of life. Like Obama I believe in hard work. I, too, have been lucky, but win or lose, I’ve always tried to be a true patriot and a loyal American.”

God is greatly moved by Hillary’s eloquence, and he offers her a seat to his right.

Finally, God turns to Trump and says, “And you, Donald, what do you believe?”

Trump replies, “I believe you’re in my seat.”

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Luke


Good Afternoon All,

Please raise the volume for our littlest Jasper. Luke suffered a seizure today and was rushed to the Hospital. He has come out of the seizure O’K but will be kept in Hackensack Hospital for a couple of days for observation. It is expected that he will be alright. We pray that that is the case and that Luke will be home free of complication, sharing his bright smile with all those around him. Please keep the volume up for Luke, his parents, Heidi and Peter, his Grandparents. Your prayers are so appreciated. Thank you. God Bless.

JOBIT: Puleo, James Harry [MC1957 RIP] on 2016-Dec-04



James Harry Puleo

ALBANY James Harry Puleo, 81, was born into eternal life on Sunday, December 4, 2016, at Memorial Hospital with his family at his bedside.

Born in Brooklyn, he was the son of the late Mr. James V. and Grace Floyd Puleo. He is the former husband of the late Evelyn J. Paliotta, A.F.S.C. for 44 years of marriage. He is currently married to Lucille Salamida.

Dr. Puleo practiced internal medicine and gastroenterology in the Albany area for 46 years, barring two years when he served as a captain in the United States Army from 1966 to 1968. He attended and graduated from Our Lady of Angels, Christian Brothers Academy, Manhattan College, and the Albany Medical College. He received academic honors of Cum Laude, Epsilon Sigma Pi Honor Society, and Alpha Omega Alpha from his respective academic institutions. He completed his internship and residency in internal medicine, as well as his fellowship in gastroenterology all at the Albany Medical Center.

Dr. Puleo was most proud to be recognized by the American College of Physicians in 2006 as a Laureate Awardee. He also received the following prestigious awards including the Physician of the Year for the Capital District Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, the Meritorious Service Award for the Albany Medical College Alumni Association, Physician of the Year for Albany Visiting Nurses Association, Senior Services Award of Albany, Man of the Year for the Center of Disability, Founders Award Capital District Physicians Health Plan, Northeast Health Founders Award, Distinguished Alumnus Award of the Christian Brothers Academy. He was graciously bestowed the Affiliation of the Christian Brothers (A.F.S.C.), and vested into the Knights of Malta.

Dr. Puleo was honored through the years to serve on the following committies, the Albany Medical Alumni Association for which he served two terms as president, president of the Albany County Medical Society, a founding member of the Original Board of the Capital District Physicians Health Plan, Upstate Medical Director for I.P.R.O., Upstate New York governor in the American College of Gastroenterologists.

Dr. Puleo was truly a patient advocate. This was evident by his commitment to quality of care. Throughout his career, and even following retirement, he remained involved and provided guidance to the Quality of Care Boards to ensure patient care at any expense. Dr. Puleo’s widely respected and long medical career is only surpassed by the love and esteem in which he was held by his family and innumerable friends. He had a great love for playing bridge, D’Raymond’s on Monday nights, and most of all, summers at his home on Cape Cod.

Dr. Puleo is survived by his five children and ten grandchildren, Michele O’Hare (Charles), Alicia Smith (David), Stephanie Mastrianni (Michael), Jennifer Gibson, and James V.

JEMAIL: McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973) on NYC Traffic



Amazing!  It’s like they’ve just discovered what I was saying 40 years ago!  Sheeesh!
Just sent them my note below:
You may know of me as a thorn in the side of the Antismokers, one who knows their tricks and techniques and lies and strategies and exposes them repeatedly and bloodily.  I like to say that the reason I know them so well, is that I used to BE one of them… sorta.
I was actually an ANTI-DRIVER!  I was a 100% dyed-in-the-wool bicycle/transit activist doing EXACTLY what you describe in that NYC Traffic article.
Back in 1976 I laid out and had published an entire strategy that was pretty much EXACTLY what you described in your article here forty years later.  See my two articles, Free Peoples Transit, and AATTAACK! (more of a short satirical piece written about 1990 — AATTAACK! stands for Americans Against The Tobacco, Alcohol, And Car Killers!”)
See them both at https://assortedtopics.quora.com/ beneath my Election 2016 analysis.
I think you’ll find them quite interesting in light of your article, and you’re more than welcome to quote freely from them with attribution in your future writings! 
Best wishes in all your future endeavors!
ccing all three co-authors here.
