All things western and more.
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?
Another fact I didn't kn pow Sandra.Have a good day.Yvonne.
You're in good company:)You have a good day too.
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 😉
Ha. Good one, Andrew.
I didn't. Clever, clever man (and I am smiling at the clever man who commented immediately above me).
Yes and yes;)
I knew the first part, but... not the second one 🤷♂️
Good job on knowing the first part.
Well...how about that!!!
I never knew this before! Hugs, Valerie
Your Thursday factoid.Have a great one.Hugs received and returned.
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.
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.
Oh really? Hmmmm 2 strikes
I'm fascinated by his inventions, though:)
I actually did know that but had forgotten a bit! What a mind.
He did have wide and varied interest, didn't he, Jeanie?
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
Indeed:)Got FL on your mind, huh? :)Hugs received and returned.
Uy que interesante, gracias por el dato. Te mando un beso
My pleasure, J. P. I'm sending you a hug:)
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,Janie
I haven't been to Monticello. I'd love to visit.
Oh, interesting that he invented these!
It is, isn't it?
Fascinating! Makes me want to create a story inside Monticello with all the little concealed devices as part of the plot.
Ooh, that would be a fun, intriguing read.
I didn't know ...All the best Jan
I'm not sure, I like him, but he is intriguing isn't he, Jan?
I didn't know this! Very cool! Big Hugs!
