I'm One Not to Judge

I personally don't care where you have been, for I have made mistakes in the past not so wise and frowned upon.  Never will I judge your history of rash and hasty decisions that veered you wrong.

I do care where you might be at this present moment and of what trail you choose to take.  Though maybe rugged and rocky, your future intensions will guide you in the right direction wherever that may be.

To a destination clearly unknown, but with good faith!

Aspen Hotel Manor

A new video launched on Forsakenly Departed I took in the early to mid 1990's when the Aspen Hotel Manor in Parsippany-Troy Hills, New Jersey was being destroyed.  I was passing buy and had my Panasonic VHS Camcorder and decided to shoot some footage.  This is pretty much all that I shot.  The next time I passed by the Aspen Hotel Manor, which was only two days later, it was completely leveled ready for new construction.  I guess that's what they call Progress!

One's Castle

It is said your home is your Castle
To close yourself from the World
However, it is also your true Identity
Your possibility to be open to Others

Luna Parc

After so many years, I finally had a day off from work when Luna Parc, home of Ricky Boscarino had his Open House! What an awesome cool crisp Autumn day it was! I've been wanting the opportunity to see Ricky's home for quite some time as he only opens it up for the public to see only twice a year and just for a couple of days.

Unkle Steve standing in awe outside the front of Ricky's home. A work in progress that began as a run down Hunter's Cabin which now looks truly amazing. You just don't know where to look first... So plan on spending a few hours if and when you venture there. Ricky states that this project will not be complete until his last day on Earth... At which time the project will remain as is.

The inside is simply magnificent with Mosaic Tiled floors and a plethora of items and memorabilia from around the world!

Luna Parc is now an official Non-Profit 501(C)(3). The Luna Parc Ateller Foundation Inc. Please remember Luna Parc is not open to the public other than specified days. Visit Ricky Boscarino's Luna Parc

The Chapel of the Saints

Early in the 20th Century Ricky's Grandfather Giuseppe Boscarino witnessed a miracle on the Feast of San Biaggio; Patron Saint of Comiso Sicily where the Boscarino Family hailed.

On this day (July 11), previous to 1924 when Giuseppe emigrated to this country, a young crippled boy was healed in presence of a great many onlookers including Ricky's Grandfather.

As he would retell the story throughout hislife, it would make his Grandfather cry and say he'd never forgot it as long as he lived.

This is the inside of the Chapel which was built and erected in 1999 to his memory of the miracle.

My contribution to Ricky... One of the items on his Wish List were license plates. I had a couple of duplicates laying around the house from vehicles that are long gone! Hopefully the next time I visit, I'll see them mounted on one of his license plate covered walls!

Stay tuned in the near future for a dedicated page on Forsakenly Departed explaining more about my wonderful visit to Luna Parc and Ricky's creations!

The Jersey Devil Spotted?!

Could this be Real or a Hoax?

Little Egg Harbor resident Dave Black captured this photo in Galloway.
He believes it may be the Jersey Devil.
What do you think? (Photo provided by Dave Black)

The 200 year old Legend of the Jersey Devil resurfaces with proof of a photograph and video... Or, could it be a possible Halloween Prank to enrich your imagination and simulate the mind.

You be the Judge as you read the article from and what the Witness states he saw. Enlighten yourself when reading the full article: Is the Jersey Devil in Galloway Township?

Incase the article gets deleted from the site, at least you can watch the video by Emily Martin who filmed this in Leeds Point, New Jersey. The fabled birthplace of the Jersey Devil!

Halloween is coming... And so are the Tricks and Treats!

How I Spend My Time Off!

Whenever I take a week off from work, everyone asks: "Where are you going?!" as if I'm going to spend it on an exotic island in the sweltering sun with my toes in the sand.

I'll respond "Nowhere!" and get "You mean you're not going anywhere?!" Yes, it's a sin to not leave the country boarding a plane or ship to escape the harsh cruel grind of everyday life. I usually respond: "I'm getting lost not having any particular destination…" Now I get the tilted head with squinty eyes looking at me not quite comprehending what was just said. Then I leave them thinking… BTW,  Why do people squint when they don't understand? Does it help them understand it better? Never worked for me.

So while everyone is indulging themselves in the sun getting Sun Poisoning and swimming in the Fish's Toilet cooling off so their skin doesn't blister… I'm slinking along in dilapidated places trying to step lightly so I don't fall through the floor and fall landing with a broken back. And if I really want to unwind… I take a leisurely stroll through a Cemetery! THAT"s how I RELAX.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Forsakenly Departed? Oh My

For those of you here who really know me and know what I'm all about, you'll get a kick out of the rumor that spread about me at work.

A coworker called the office the other day on my day off in a panic asking if I had passed away. She stated that it was all over Facebook and was really concerned.

When I arrived at work and asked "What in God's name made you think I was dead?!" She said that she saw my name come up as "People you may Know" and opened my page seeing that it was truly me. Then reading under my name in parentheticals were the words "Forsakenly Departed"… I started cracking up and simply told her that my old Facebook page was named after my website and had to recreate a new one under my real name. Stillwanting my Friends know that I'm connected with Forsakenly Departed. I finished the conversation asking: "Didn't you scroll down just a little bit seeing that everyone was welcoming me back?!" I pretty much got a dead pan look as she was unable to comprehend what had just been explained.

I now will Depart Forsakenly from this conversation!
