Here are some one liners...
Old Bushmills Irish Whiskey and the Sins of Our Fathers -- A whiskey distillery opens. I talk about who and why it opens, and who and why others are not opening it. Can you say, "The Beginning of the Troubles?"
The Only 'Nada' they Found was in the word 'Canada' -- Quebec is founded. I also talk about the Louisiana Purchase.
The Check is in the Mail... and in the Netherlands -- The beginning of the modern checking system and my thoughts on creating money using 3rd party checks.
