It was not until 1507 that people began to realize that what Columbus had discovered was not a new route to India, but instead was a completely new world. The first person to suggest that this was the case was an Italian explorer by the name of Amerigo Vespucci.
Because he was the first to realize that a new world had been discovered, map makers began calling this new land the ‘Americas’ in honor of him.
Integrity is not a conditional word. It doesn''t blow in the wind or change with the weather. It is your inner image of yourself, and if you look in there and see a man who won''t cheat, then you know he never will.
John D. MacDonald
King Edward II had a pet lion which traveled with him as he toured his kingdom.
