George Washington's first State of the Union message to Congress was 833 words long.
The State of the Union has been delivered yearly to Congress, but only in the 20th Century was the tradition of a speech revived.
Initially, Presidents Washington and John Adams gave speeches, but Thomas Jefferson perferred to send letters to Congress. President Woodrow Wilson was the next President to speak in person at the Capitol, but it did not become a yearly tradition again until President Franklin Roosevelt in 1934.
Franklin Roosevelt is the record-holder with 10 speeches before Congress.
In all, this year will be the 72nd State of the Union delivered in-person in Congress.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
