My name is Gilbert Thomas and I’m a 42 year old minister from Rhode Island.

"Thomas Jefferson designed this house exactly the way he wanted it. The most unique room in the house is his bedroom, where his bed is between two separate rooms so that when he woke up in the morning, he could immediately put on his boots and go outside or roll out of the other side of the bed and begin studying."
