Woo-Hoo, 1492!

christopher_columbus[1]Happy Birthday discovery of America!

Yes, it was on this day in 1492 that Christopher Columbus, sailor for hire, ran into America while looking for India.  He annoyed all of Europe’s monarchs enough to finally get Ferdie and Izzy to send him on his way. 

While this is arguably the greatest discovery of all time Christopher died feeling defeated and a failure since he did not find a trade route to India, instead an insignificant piece of land to the west.

Some perspective for you.
