#24 - "Screwing Around. . ."

#25 was Alphabetization or the Alphabet! Tony, Mike, Elaine, Peyton, and Joani found time to check in.

"Screwing Around"

This bucket of screws and bolts were left behind after the East Bridgewater factory had been totally disassembled. Was it the time spent in the bucket that caused them to rust or were they already in that state when they were taken off the various pieces of equipment throughout the facility. Guess we'll never know!

Greatest Inventions of All Time!
Recently I came across an article about the greatest inventions as determined by a large group of scientists, philosophers, educators, and other professions. Their task was to create a list of "the Greatest Inventions of All Time." Conveniently, the final list numbered fifty! so, I'm starting with #50 and working my way down to Numero Uno in December.

Fear not as I will offer you some hints as to what the invention was.


is a device that permits two or more users to conduct a conversation when they are too far apart to be heard directly. It converts sound, typically and most efficiently the human voice, into electronic signals that are transmitted via cables and other communication channels to similar device which reproduces the sound to the receiving user.

In 1876, Scottish emigrant Alexander Graham Bell was the first to be granted a United States patent for a device that produced clearly intelligible replication of the human voice. This instrument was further developed by many others. #24 was the first device in history that enabled people to talk directly with each other across large distances. They rapidly became indispensable to businesses, government, and households, and are today some of the most widely used small appliances!

This is the easiest one so far - no excuses for missing #24!
