  1. To determine its list, U.S. News & World Report used data from sources like United States Census Bureau and the Department of Labor to determine factors including strength of job market (i.e., unemployment rate and average salary); quality of life (crime rate, well being and quality of education and health care); and value index (annual housing cost and median annual household income). The magazine also polled approximately 2,500 people across the country to find out in what metro areas they would most likely live, to determine desirability. There are the top 10 places to live in America, according to U.S. News & World Report. 1. Austin, Texas 2. Denver, Colorado 3. Colorado Springs, Colorado 4. Fayetteville, Arkansas 5. Des Moines, Iowa 6. Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota 7. San Francisco, California 8. Portland, Oregon 9. Seattle, Washington 10. Raleigh & Durham, North Carolina Two cities from last year’s ranking (Huntsville, Alabama and Washington D.C.) did not make this year’s list. New to the list for 2019 is San Francisco, California (ranked No. 7) and Raleigh & Durham, North Carolina (ranked No. 10). Desirability played a significant role in San Francisco’s jump to No. 7. “While the San Francisco metro area is a pricey place to live,” says Thorsby, “the higher median household income compared to many other parts of the U.S. helps to offset that. Also, San Francisco’s education quality is higher than most other cities.” The Raleigh and Durham metro area performs well due to its steady population growth and low cost of living, according to Thorsby. “Raleigh and Durham area residents spend just 21.47 percent of the median household income on housing, which helps money go farther there,” she says.
  2. I am just hoping that OKC doesn't become a farm team in the future for other franchises. OKC has a great fan base.
  3. I am happy the Thunder are at least trying to get better. The Thunder are the worst case scenario for any team. Team is good enough to get to the playoffs but not make deep runs or compete for a championship anymore. So they always get ####ty draft picks and are straddled with high salaries.
  4. My one son who still plays baseball has been through the entire gamut. From T-Ball to Highly Competitive High School Baseball. Tryouts for AAA - Majors Teams in Oklahoma - Coaches are usually only looking for 1 or 2 kids that are stud athletes who don't need much coaching. If a kid comes with a nice resume of playing at a high level it helps their chances tremendously. Also helps if the parents are not bat #### crazy. My son played on the team that represent Oklahoma in the Little League World Series. Probably 50 kids trying out for 15 spots. Largest high school in Oklahoma. Graduate over 1400 kids a year. Tryouts for HS BALL: Run a 60 yard dash looking for 7.5 or less. Field around 5 balls for infielders, outfielders get a few popfly balls. Catchers - Looking for "pop time" and fielding bunts. Hitting - each kid got 5 balls to hit that were probably thrown around 80 mph. We had 51 already on the team consisting of Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors. Looking for around 9 to 10 kids out of the 90 plus kids trying out which consisted of transfers, incoming freshmen, and older kids who were cut from team or didn't make it in an earlier in year. Yeah it is tough.
  5. Butterfly Kisses. When OKC was bombed in 1995 I was home on leave visiting my wife's family in the Tulsa area. After everything cleared we made a trip up to see damage. Everyone was putting pictures of their killed family members. Some people had placed stuffed bears as well with the pictures of all the kids who were killed. I knew that I didn't want to read any of the letters but for some reason the one I stopped to read was from a father to his daughter who got killed in the bombing. The father wrote a lot about how he was going to miss his daughter growing up into a lovely woman but most of all he was going to miss her butterfly kisses. I can't even listen to the song. I just turn it off or switch the channel.

  8. Did Kristen Gillibrand mean to look like Hillary Clinton?
