It’s National Thomas Jefferson day!  According to National Day Calendar dot com today we celebrate and remember Thomas Jefferson on his birthday.  Born on April 13, 1743, Jefferson was curious and an avid reader, having more than six thousand books in his personal library.  Although not much of a public speaker, he was a prolific writer in the form of correspondence, documents, journals and manuscripts.  Known as the primary author of the Declaration of Independence.  He served as Secretary of State under Washington, Vice President to John Adams and the third President of the United States.   Jefferson was not only a lawyer, but he was also a scientist of agriculture, paleontology, and astronomy. He kept detailed records of the weather and eventually established weather observers across his home state of Virginia.   Listen to the podcast here;
