Did You Know

 


Did you know, Thomas Jefferson was an inventor and among his inventions were dumbwaiters and concealed devices that would open doors in his Monticello home?

  2. Monticello sounds like an interesting place. I must look it up. Ah, there a lot of Monticellos in the US. I like my waiters to have the ability to speak 😉

  6. I find this man interesting. He did a lot during his lifetime. Shame he owned slaves and is considered bad because of this which, no kidding.

    1. Yes, I'm having problems warming up to him because of the slavery issue and I'm not sure how kind he was to his animals.

  8. The creation of the first Smart Home seems pretty cool, and I did not know this. Hope you are doing well. I keep waking up in NC, and when I get up from my daily naps later in the day, I've time-traveled to Florida. (lol) Hugs, RO

  10. We visited Monticello long ago, which was fun and interesting. I think I remember the dumbwaiter, but I don't recall devices that opened doors.

    Love,

  12. Fascinating! Makes me want to create a story inside Monticello with all the little concealed devices as part of the plot.
