Happy President's Day

This weekend is, in the United States, a holiday weekend. That's because Monday is a federal holiday. Historically, it started as a day to remember the birthday of George Washington, our first president. In the last few decades, however, it has come to be known as President's Day in many states, and is a day to celebrate both Washington and Lincoln's birthdays.

I hope that you find this weekend enjoyable and a time to enjoy some time with your family. (I also hope you enjoy the tips in this week's issue of the newsletter.)
