Our thoughts are turning presidential as time progresses toward a new election cycle. Another four years have slipped by and we see various possible candidates vying for our attention. What a wonderful country we live in where we have the right to speak freely and change leadership as we see fit. Some leaders we like and some we dislike. Some Presidents are so exceptional that they are remembered in a positive light throughout history. Our first, President George Washington is one of those leaders, and today, Jan. 8, marks the anniversary of his first "State of the Union" address, which was also the first of our new nation. The year was 1790 where Congress was assembled in New York City.
