Verified Jefferson Enthusiast and blogger with a penchant for this site and everything to do with the subject. An avid gardener and keen amateur historian.
My favourite quote "A wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circlue of our felicities."
And my second favourite "A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks."
My main joys in life are education and after that food and drinkalong with the occasional game of bingo at my local haunt.
