This is the story of Jennie and her family.

Hello, my name is Jennie. I am from West Orange, New Jersey, which is a hop, skip, and jump from New York City. Check out this great site about New Jersey. If you are looking for daytrips in the New Jersey area, information about historical sites, shopping information and much more, stop by Friendly NJ . Do you enjoy going out for dinner? If so, check out some reviews of NJ restaurants, by visiting New Jersey's Premier Restaurant and Dining Guide.

I was born and raised in New Jersey and am proud of my state. To visit my New Jersey Road Map, a site devoted to the state of New Jersey and all the things that you can do there (and in surrounding areas), click here .

This is a picture of me in front of my house. Click here if you would like to see what I look like.

Check out this foursome. Can you tell who the REAL clown is???

There are four of us in my family. I live with my mother, my father, and my grandmother (who everyone calls nanny). To see my family, click here. From left to right: me, my Mom, and my Nanny. Dad isn't in the photo, so he must have taken the picture.

My mom also has a Web Page that I'm helping her design. Her site has a lot of travel links, since it's an interest that both her and I share. Visit her site, you'll find plenty of things to do and places to go!

Sad news: On February 14, 2001, my pet parakeet, Chipper, died. He had been sick for a while and towards the end wasn't able to eat anything or drink his water. Chipper was very much a member of my family, and we all miss him very much. As much as he is missed, I'm glad that he's at peace now and is no longer suffering.

Chipper used to fit right in with his bird talk, raising his chirps as we would get louder, trying to out-do us.

Here is a picture of Chipper, taken when he was about a month and a half old. Chipper was a male bird, and we attempted to train him to talk. It took about 8 months, but he he did learn to talk a little bit. He could say "Pretty Birrrrd" and "Chipper dipper do" As I mentioned before, Chipper loved it when there was action (and noise) around. He especially enjoyed The Drew Carey Show. I always expected to hear him say "Bite Me Dough Bird," but he never did learn to say that! He also had a favorite video that we would put on for him whenever we cleaned his cage. That video was a sing-a-long Christmas tape the U.S. Postal System sold a few years ago, with Frosty the Snowman on it.

Here's a picture of me. It was taken in September 1998, in Newport, Rhode Island on the Cliffwalk.

Another site that I visit often, is The New Jersey Library Association (NJLA) .

My Education

I graduated in 1992 from The College of Saint Elizabeth with my BS in Business Management. After graduating, I worked as a library clerk in a public library and loved it so much, I decided to go back to school to become a Librarian. After much hard work, I graduated from Rutgers University, School of Communication, Information, and Library Studies, with my MLS.

Favorite Movies and Television Shows

One of my favorite movies is The Princess Bride. It has a wonderful soundtrack and is a story that I will always love! To see information about the movie, the soundtrack, the book, and the actors, visit The Dread Pirate Roberts'Princess Bride Page .

One of my favorite television shows is Party of Five. Another favorite is East Enders. I also enjoy Days of Our Lives. Even though Another World has been cancelled, I'm still a fan of the acting talent from the show. Another World's actress Jensen Buchanan, who played Vicki has an official fan website. Stop by to visit it! Do you like Judi Evans Luciano, who played Paulina on Another World? Make sure you stop by her official web site if you do. I've met Judi and she's such a sweet person! Joseph Barbara's official website can be found here . He played Joe Carlino on Another World. A new show on the USA Network is The Net,which is based on the movie by the same name. I think I might become hooked on this show! Bad news...The Net has been taken off the air! What a shame, since it was really a great show. I'm going to keep the link on my site, with the hope that USA will bring the show back!
