A note on the PayPal Verified Seal Verified Member of PayPal Click Here to read what it means to be PayPal Verified.  We included this link because we know that some people are a little hesitant when making credit card purchases over the Internet, and might not know too much about PayPal.  We took a screenshot of the "Verified Status Description" because (believe it or not!), PayPal wants you to create an account, and log in JUST to read it!   Seems silly to us!  You deserve to know as much about us before you create an account, not after.

How It All Began


It all began on a very warm winter's day, by Southern California standards, on January 28, 1999. My grandson, Austin, we call him Tino, needed extra tutoring in Global History in order to pass it for the current semester. He was a borderline 'D' and needed a 'C' to pass. Since I was an avid history buff, he came to stay with me for two weeks to help him 'cram' the subject into his brain. It became apparent the first day that he needed quiet study time after each verbal lesson. That gave me 'dead' time on my hands; about six hundred years worth -- from 1000 BC, the end of the building of the Egyptian pyramids, the fall of the Macedonians and into the rise of the Greek culture in 400 BC.

I started to jot down notes of mental pictures, while he studied, from the history lesson. All kinds of images were dancing around in my head like they used to when I was his age. I could never draw form pictures perse, as my mother could, but I always did know how to make 'word pictures'. One word picture led to another and there I was, at the end of our first day -- hooked again.

At the end of two weeks, Tino had a notebook full of dry, ancient history notes and I had a notebook full of 'word pictures'. He got a mid 'C' in Global History and I got, first from my son-in-law, "Why don't we ---",   then from my daughter, "Yes! And I can do the graphics---",  and last from my husband, "Go for it!"
