Back In the Day-A Good Day and a Bad Day for the Gibbs

March 10th, a day of two celebrity deaths and a found planet.

1849 – An Illinois attorney received a patent for an inflatable airbag to lift grounded boats off sandbars.  However, the inventor  one ABE LINCOLN was too busy pursuing politics and the invention never developed.

1876 – ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL transmitted the FIRST TELEPHONE MESSAGE, to his assistant in the next room:  “Mr. Watson, come here, I want you.”  It sounds gay, but Bell was actually in a panic because he had spilled acid on his clothes.
