Happy Presidents' Day!

No, it's not President Washington's actual birthday today. But it's the day we as a nation celebrate it. The third Monday in the month of February.

So for me, today is a day to reflect on some of our greatest presidents...

and some of our not so greatest presidents.

Hopefully, our next president will be added to the first category and not the second.

Technically according to the then-used Julian calendar, President Washington was born on February 11, 1731.
But in 1752, Britain and all its colonies adopted the Gregorian calendar which moved Washington's birthday a year and 11 days to February 22, 1732. In turn making him younger.
A year younger? Hey, I'd take it!
