The History of Vinewood

I began selling online in 1996 with the ebay id  Vinewood    I bought a WebTV and started discovering this new place called the World Wide Web.
 I began selling online in 1996 with the ebay id  and internet of  Vinewood  ,  which  came from   our  telphone  prefix . We had  1,200  cow  Dairy in Central California  , 300 Registered Holstein cow , which also had  Vinewood starting their name ,  hence a holstein cows for my internet avar.
   In the earky 90's   i had a sportcard store  , as i started collecting  sportscards  in  1980 so the store was a good place to  make a few pennies. In 1996  I bought a WebTV and started discovering this new place called the World Wide Web selling  Sportcards on ebay.As we all know the fees got  higher and higher on ebay , so  I made a website Sportscards4all and blog ,and also sold  on estores .   And  here I  am  on Addoway  , and Facebook with 6 fan pages , selling  sportscards  and also  make  banners and avar's.

My grandfather had a dairy farm - much smaller, only 80 head, in Northern New York State. Nice history.

I still have my WebTV.... only it's been bought by MSN, so it's now called MSNTV and I have the newer version which works off my router and high speed internet (it will still hook up to a phone line for dial-up if that's what you want)... the newer one is called MSNTV-2. My husband uses it because he will not learn to use a computer. I like to use it to listen to music because the TV is connected to the stereo and it sounds much better than the little computer speakers. Great post, by the way.

Wow! 1996!!! And I thought I was an Internet pioneer. I didn't get started until 2000. Got my first computer in 1988 though. Thanks for sharing your history. I always wondered about the origination of the Vinewood name.
