Hello, sweet readers, me again. I hope your week is off to a great start!
Just for fun, here are some fun and inspirational facts for your Tuesday:
Did you know that Josephine Cochran invented the dishwashing machine? Ms. Cochran unveiled the first dishwashing machine at the World’s Fair. Supposedly she exclaimed, “If nobody else is going to invent a dishwashing machine, I’ll do it myself.”
Lady Ada Lovelace (daughter of Lord Byron) invented the binary systems of numbers. I’ll be honest, arithmetic is not my forte and I don’t actually know what binary systems of numbers means, BUT her invention makes her the first computer programmer! And that’s cool in my book.
And, did you know that women also invented the windshield wiper, the bra, the jockstrap, coffee filters and chocolate chip cookies?
PS. I learned all of the above facts from reading Backwards in High Heels.
Ladies, let this be your inspiration. Now go and invent something!
