I Am Back

Hi Everyone

Most of you know that I have not been posting on this blog for a bit. Been posting on my FaceBook fan site that now has over 30,000 fans
It is : Tales of the New Jersey Shore

Also been busy with my NJTV PBS show Tales of the Jersey Shore.  I will now be blogging here again in addition to the other projects so please keep an eye out for some great Jersey Shore stories and images.
Thanks for your patience

Our Pilot is Complete

Many of you that follow me on Facebook know I have been working on a 25 minute pilot on Asbury Park called The Real Jersey Shore. It will be the first hopefully of many.
Our goal is to show viewers the real shore as a wholesome, family destination and not the reality trash on television.
Hate to let you know but there are a few new trash shows in production as I write this.

Our next step is for our fundraiser to approach NJ based corporations and perhaps a few wealthy individuals that wish to show the world the real NJ Shore and receive funding to move ahead with production.
Wish I could post the pilot for you but I am under legal constraints not to show it to anyone but potential underwriters.

Keep you posted.

Following and entering the raffle

A fan just suggested that I move the 'Follow" box on the left of the page to the very top so it is visible.
Good idea and I just figured out how to do it.

If you have not joined as a follower please do and join the raffle for the Replica Monopoly game that I will raffle off when we hit 1000 Followers. We are at 540 today


Young's Pier - Atlantic City

Before Captain John Lake Young ( he gave himself the rank of Captain )  built his massive Million Dollar Pier in 1906 in Atlantic City he began with Young and McShea's Pier.  John Lake Young and his financial backer, Stewart McShea, bought the old Applegate's Pier and turned it into the Ocean Pier ( later Young's Pier.) The successful showman enticed Sarah Bernhardt to debut when the pier opened.
It burned in 1912 but by then he had opened his Million Dollar Pier.

The Blog and Facebook

If you are reading this you are visiting my blog via Facebook.

THANKS  ( you see I could not do that on Facebook :) )
While I have lost some fans because people do not want to click the links I am posting to take you to this blog it is worth it to have interested readers.

Facebook is a social media site that I was trying to use as a blog. It had many limitations regarding size, quality, number of images, type styles ( see above, ) and was wide open to hated SPAMMERS.

This blog has the same stories written by me so there is no down side. Just a matter of clicking the link to the blog when I post on Facebook.

While it is not a requirement to read the blog if you register to follow it on the left hand side of the page   ( not the follow me on Twiter icon ) you get to enroll in the raffle for the Replica Monopoly Set once we hit 1,000 registered followers. All you need to register is a gmail, yahoo, twitter, AIM email address, etc

It is the "Follow" icon over the pictures of the 500 plus registered followers.

Mini Jerusalem - Ocean Grove

When Ocean Grove was first established as a Methodist Camp Meeting ground- an " Eden by the Sea," a large attraction was the model of Jerusalem built by a local member of the community.
It was later covered with a protective roofed structure but eventually was lost to age and Jersey Shore weather.
This was an illustrator's depiction of mini Jerusalem in the late 1880s.


Hydrangeas in Atlantic City

Hard to believe that there were once beautiful Hydrangeas along the Atlantic City boardwalk.

Don't forget to register as a Follower on the left hand of the page
