So what did this John Hanson due his only year in office? He established the US Treasure, the US Seal and established Thanksgiving on the 4th Thursday of November. Not bad for being in power only 365 days!
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
