...Or It Is A Long Way From The Bronx!
Let's get the gory stuff out of the way. I, Marianne G. Petrino, was born on February 9, 1955 in the South Bronx, New York at 10:45 AM (now you can do a horoscope). I still miss phone numbers with names. The only one I could claim was CYprus 5 1186. My first dwelling was at 441 East 182nd Street, Apartment 11. Don't look for the building: like many in the Bronx, it got torched in the seventies. I understand that there is now a warehouse at the lot. For six years I attended Our Savior's School founded (so I have been told) by fighting Father Duffy (see the movie with Jimmy Cagney: The Fighting 69th!). I moved to New Jersey at the ripe age of 11, but everything about me arises from my Bronx roots. That is all you really need to know to know me, so let's get to fun stuff!
Recently, I set up a blog called The Star the Tiger Follows. Here you can find my current musings.
I practice Reiki-Seichim which I learned through Mary Phalen and R. Neville Johnston of Telepathic TV. If you want to energize your third eye, you can learn sorts of amazing metaphysical things by exploring all their course options,and watching their TV show.

I am keeping a small archive of recent reviews, a rolling year or so, for your pleasure and perusal.

Every autumn I look forward to the Monarch butterfly migration. Check it out via the Monarch Watch homepage , and read my "stirring" article Diary of a Middle-Aged Monarch Watcher.
Calling all aging Baby Boomers! Does the battle cry, "Smoking Rockets!" , stir your blood?
