Being my travels down those great two lane highways of this nation as well as news I learn about them from media sources. Since I'm also very interested in historic preservation, there will be a lot of that as well.

Inventions: The Mother of Vacations-- Part 6: Alexandria
ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA: Whether its a better mousetrap or a computer mouse, inventions require a patent. Hey, you want to make money off your creation. You'd want to visit the U.S. Patent and Trademark Odffice in this city, ////
It also houses the National Inventors Hall of Fame and Museum which featuresrent exhibit on health and exercising ingenuity highlights such inventions as Gatorade and the Thighmaster. ////
I mention Alec Foege several times as this is his list of must-see places. He has a new book out "The Tinkerers: The Amateurs, DIYers, and Inventors Who Make America Great" put out by Basic Books. Soounds like a good one to check out. ////
I knew some of these places he listed, but not all of them. ---RoadDog
