Many 19th century world explorers and their discoveries made a tremendous impact on history. One of my favorite Egyptologist, Jean François Champollion, journeyed to Egypt, as one of the four members of the Franco-Tuscan Expedition, in 1827.

England is quite lovely this time of year. The weather changes from…
Like most little girls, I grew up playing tea party. Ceramic and plastic tea sets are still some of the most popular toys, if you have daughters or granddaughters, they probably have at least one.
