"By George you've Got it!"


"George Washington was born in Virginia on February 11, 1731, according to the then-used Julian calendar. In 1752, however, Britain and all its colonies adopted the Gregorian calendar which moved Washington's birthday a year and 11 days to February 22, 1732."

We are happy to be participating in "Feline Friday", hosted by Comedy Plus

  6. Happy birthday to George Washington. I respect him partly because at the time he could have probably seized power and made himself president for life but he set a precedent for all that followed by retiring after two terms.

  7. George was a heck of a man; I've read a few biographies about him. He was a farmer, who found himself pushed into the limelight, and he seemed always ready to go back HOME to his fields. We, as a nation, were very lucky to have him.

  16. It has been essentially unfathomably liberal with you to give transparently what precisely numerous people would've promoted for an eBook to finish up making some money for their end, fundamentally given that you could have attempted it in the occasion you needed.
