Thomas Jefferson's recipe for vanilla ice cream, written in his own hand, ca. 1780s. It may be the first recipe for ice cream recorded in America (Jefferson most likely got it from a French source). Here is a transcription of the recipe if you're feeling bold enough to try it at home: www.loa.org/...

Thomas Jefferson quote/ No Religion

To support roguery and error all over the earth. Let us reflect that it is inhabited by a thousand millions of people. That these profess probably a thousand different systems of religion. That ours is but one of that thousand. That if there be but one right, and ours that one, we should wish to see the 999 wandering sects gathered into the fold of truth. (love how this was left out to push agenda...)
from "Notes on the State of Virginia: Religion -The different religions received into that state" (He was the Founding Father who wrote the Declaration, and became the 3rd President. NO, America was NOT founded on "Christianity".)
Atheism, Religion, Christianity, God is Imaginary, Torture, Death, Murder, Forcing Religion on Others, Thomas Jefferson. Millions of innocent men, women, and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined, imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity. What has been the effects of coercion? TO make one half the world fools, and the other half hypocrites.
Before paper became such a common commodity, people would use various instruments to take notes on. Thomas Jefferson, for instance, used ivory plates to record numbers and memos on as he took measurements with his pocket instruments. He would write scientific observations, notes, or finances down in pencil, and then recopy any valuable information on a more permanent medium. He could then erase any pencil markings off the plates and reuse them again.

Sally Hemings (~1773 – 1835) was the mixed-race slave of the third President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson. She was the daughter of Betty Hemings – also a mixed-race slave – and purportedly, attorney/slave trader/tobacco plantation owner, John Wayles, who was also father to Martha Wayles (Jefferson), Thomas Jefferson’s wife. This never-disputed lineage would have made Sally and Martha half-sisters; and there were several documented accounts that they strongly resembled each other.

“Master of the Mountain”: The real truth about Thomas Jefferson. "...the real filth is in the ledger books....In a notation scribbled down as he was tallying up the plantation’s profits and losses in 1792, Jefferson calculated for the first time a number that would prove more persuasive than any Enlightenment anthem on the rights of man. That number was 4 percent — the profit he was making every year on the birth of black children."

Thomas Jefferson's pocket notebook (fabricated from ivory, and endlessly erasable).
Thomas Jefferson, a devoted early riser, would begin each day by taking measurements of the weather such as temperature, wind speed, and precipitation. [...] He also carried a small notebook made up of ivory leaves on which to record his observations. He would write down his measurements in pencil and in the evening transfer the data to seven large notebooks, each devoted to a different subject. He would then erase the ivory plates, readying them for another day of scientific inquiry.

Come to the Hobe Sound Public Library Book Club on Tuesday, March 4th at 1pm to discuss Annette Gordon-Reed’s book The Hemingses of Monticello. Although the book presents the most detailed and richly drawn portrait ever written of Sarah Hemings, better known by her nickname Sally, who bore seven children by Jefferson over the course of their thirty-eight-year liaison, The Hemingses of Monticello tells more than the story of her life with Jefferson and their children.
The Hemingses of Monticello: An American Family by Annette Gordon-Reed. National Book Award, 2008. I can't wait to read this one.
The Hemingses of Monticello: An American Family, by Annette Gordon-Reed. (W. W. Norton & Co., 2008).

'Utilizing analysis and studies by Welsh Color & Conservation, Inc., it was determined that the walls of Monticello's Dining room and Tea room were originally white unpainted plaster. Later in 1815 Jefferson had the Dining room painted a bright chrome yellow.'

"Monticello's enslaved cooks, Edith Fossett and Frances Hern, and their assistants carried platters of food from the kitchen upstairs to this revolving serving door. Burwell Colbert, the enslaved butler, worked inside the dining room, turned the door to receive the food. Colbert could serve the meal with the help of only a few enslaved teenage boys, in keeping with Jefferson's desire for privacy during diner. Jefferson had seen similar doors in use in European monasteries.
