Incidentally, most of my kids don't even know there WAS a President Chester Arthur (or Arthur Chester, for that matter *wink*). They tend to think I'm talking about someone's Great-Uncle or another... *sigh*

Okay, since we're off to a new year, let's see what you guys know about new things, and the people who came up with them. You might be surprised at how much you do (or don't) know....

Who in the World Made That (And When)??

See if you can give the inventor's (or inventors') name(s) to the following creations, and the year they came up with them (decade and/or century will do for the older ones).

2. We all know that Leonardo da Vinci came up with the concept for the Submarine. (Well, some of us do, if we didn't sleep through history class. *wink*) But who was the first person to actually BUILD and OPERATE one?
3. Why, one day, will we all be thanking James Auger and Jimmy Loizeau the next time we step into a restaurant, movie theater, or dentist's office (or, perhaps not)?
