We had Brunch with John’s Granddaughter, daughter in law and her parents.  We visited Edison and Fords winter compound. Very interesting...we learned Edison was a mentor for Ford 16 years his junior, encouraged him to start Ford Motor Co.  When Edison’s lab burned down Ford built him anew one.   Edison had 1,290 patents, things such as waffle Iron, curling irons, etc. and he was instrumental in starting General Electric with other investors. When he died he was trying to find an alternative to Rubber which was just before WW2. Well worth the days visit.
