… that today is Niagara Falls Tightrope Day? In 1859, Frenchman Charles Blondin aka Jean Francois Gravelet crossed Niagara Falls on a tightrope! It took him five minutes while 25,000 spectators stood and stared as he made his way across the Falls – one he had made several times before on stilts, carrying another man on his back, pushing a wheelbarrow, and, even once, blindfolded!

Today’s Inspirational Quote:

“You are responsible for how you feel no matter what someone does to you. Remember, you are always in control of your thoughts so choose to feel confident and adequate rather than angry and insecure.”
