225 years ago. Wow. That does seem like a long time ago.

Just think: IF you had ancestors who bought stock that day and held onto them.

I don’t think, though I haven’t looked it up, that this was the first Stock Exchange. Something tells me that London or possibly Amsterdam predated New York. Nonetheless, 225-years is quite the anniversary. 225 years from now will be 2,242!

Indubitably one of my favorite artists of all time and across all genres. He was magical. In my book one of five GIANTS of the Renaissance, the other four being: Michelangelo, TitianLeonardo da Vinci and Raphael.

His paintings are so timeless and mesmerizing. What a talent?

What an age that was. All these great artist, all in Italy, more or less at the same time.

Just spare a thought. He died over 500 year ago. 500 years!
