I was watching the History Channel International last night and saw the story of Sir Frank Whittle, the inventor of the Jet Engine. One in a long line of brilliant people which seem to come along at the right time.

I know his son and his grandson, who live locally and have a business here in New Jersey. And they both are as inventive as their dad and granddad and extremely polite and gracious people.

Just thought this would be of interest to some.
