Non-political political trivia question:

Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama all served two consecutive terms. It’s the second time in history that three presidents in a row each served two terms consecutively.

Name the other three in a row.

Total city boy question here. What do farmers do in the winter? I would imagine with crop farmers there are busy and slow times of the year? What about those who raise livestock?

Again, not questioning the work ethic of farmers. I know they work hard. Just wondering if/when they have slow times.
