Oh, my goodness! I was fascinated with Ada’s story from beginning to end. She was the daughter of Lord Byron, one of England’s most famous poets. She invented the first computer program before she died at age 36. Talk about girl power! She lived from 1815 to 1852, when ladies were not allowed to own property or vote. Wow! What a story!
Whenever I read or write, I find a comfy chair with a great view. I get my favorite drink, stretch out, and let the words take me away.
