Happy Presidents Day

We would like to wish everyone a Happy Presidents Day! If you live in the States then you know why today is a holiday. For our readers who have no idea what this day is, here's a quick explanation:

For many years the birthdays of two former US presidents, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, were celebrated as federal holidays. Each year we would alternate which date workers would have off. As the result of a law passed a couple of decades ago, the Monday between their two birthdays would be the new holiday giving most government workers a three day weekend.

Personally, my favorite President is Millard Fillmore. Now there was a great President!!
