Where To Live?

I saw the link for Find Your Spot over at Christine's blog, so I thought I'd see what are the top twenty-four places for me to live. They are:

1. Little Rock, Arkansas (Where America Comes Together)
2. New Orleans, Louisiana (The Crescent City)
3. Oakland, California (East Bay Living)
4. Long Beach, California (LA’s Ocean Playground)
5. Honolulu, Hawaii (America’s Tropical Paradise)
6. Monroe, Louisiana (Twin Cities of the South)
7. San Diego, California (California’s First City)
8. Orange County, California (Live The California Dream)
9. Shreveport-Bossier City, Louisiana (Cities of Three Flags)
10. Lafayette, Louisiana (The Heart of French Louisiana)
11. Las Vegas, Nevada (Entertainment Capital of the World)
12. Portland, Oregon (City of Roses)
13. Los Angeles, California (The Dream Factory)
14. Sacramento, California (The River City)
15. Alexandria, Louisiana (The Crossroads of Louisiana)
16. Baton Rouge, Louisiana (The Cajun Capital)
17. Fayetteville, Arkansas (Light of the Ozarks)
18. Washington, District of Columbia (The World's Greatest Capital)
19. San Jose, California (The Silicon Capital)
20. Ventura, California (The Buena Coast)
21. Houma, Louisiana (The Heart of Cajun Country)
22. Baltimore, Maryland (The Sparkling Harbor City)
23. Las Cruces, New Mexico (City of the Sun)
24. Albuquerque, New Mexico (The Pulse of New Mexico)

There's a lot of California and Louisiana entries in here, probably because I said that being near a beach is important to me. I really don't think I'd move to any of these places except Honolulu. :-) While Vegas is a great place to visit, I don't think I'd really want to live there.

Portland is only about an hour from the beach! But the water is cold as hell! Still, I recommend Portland highly.

Where To Live?

I saw the link for Find Your Spot over at Christine's blog, so I thought I'd see what are the top twenty-four places for me to live. They are:

1. Little Rock, Arkansas (Where America Comes Together)
No, "AMERICA", Meaning North and South, comes together in Panama City, Panama which lyes on the Panama Canal

2. New Orleans, Louisiana (The Crescent City)
If you can handle the crime, corruption, mosquitoes and hurricanes. But it does have potential.
3. Oakland, California (East Bay Living)
If you can handle the earthquakes.
4. Long Beach, California (LA?s Ocean Playground)
LA meaning Los Angeles County, and ditto for earthquakes, as well as crime and pollution.
5. Honolulu, Hawaii (America?s Tropical Paradise)
No, Hawaii is nowhere near "America", it's in Polynesia, and has trouble being able to handle all the people already there
6. Monroe, Louisiana (Twin Cities of the South)
If you're talking about Monroe-West Monroe, I can think of alot better candidates for that title, a few in Florida a few in North Carolina, etc not to mention Dallas-Fort Worth Texas.
7. San Diego, California (California?s First City)
Not as bad for Earthquakes I hear, but still has Southern California's water problems.
8. Orange County, California (Live The California Dream)
Again, the earthquakes.
9. Shreveport-Bossier City, Louisiana (Cities of Three Flags)
Can't say I know what that means, but there seems to be no problems there.
10. Lafayette, Louisiana (The Heart of French Louisiana)
If all the Haitians moving to Florida moved to that region instead, it could help to restore the linguistic culture.
11. Las Vegas, Nevada (Entertainment Capital of the World)
Sin City, needs a new water source
12. Portland, Oregon (City of Roses)
Name causes confusion with Maine's largest city, earthquakes, hailstorms (a minor inconvenience), and I never cared much for primate-border cities (I live in Louisville, Ky- the Goofy Metropolis)
13. Los Angeles, California (The Dream Factory)
Shootings, desolation, pollution, corruption, earthquakes, yadda yadda yadda
14. Sacramento, California (The River City)
Not as bad for earthquakes I hear.
15. Alexandria, Louisiana (The Crossroads of Louisiana)
I see no problems
16. Baton Rouge, Louisiana (The Cajun Capital)
Same as for New Orleans and Lafayette.
17. Fayetteville, Arkansas (Light of the Ozarks)
I see no problems.
18. Washington, District of Columbia (The World's Greatest Capital)
I hate when people call it "Washington", singly. That's in the Pacific Northwest for cryin out loud!
19. San Jose, California (The Silicon Capital)
Sprawl City.
20. Ventura, California (The Buena Coast)
Coastal Southern Cal, what can I say I haven't already? But I'd still pick there over the "City of Fallen Angels"
21. Houma, Louisiana (The Heart of Cajun Country)
Same as for Lafayette + plus a very vulnerable location. Hate to see what happens when the polar caps start melting.
22. Baltimore, Maryland (The Sparkling Harbor City)
Not everybody likes John Waters.
23. Las Cruces, New Mexico (City of the Sun)
24. Albuquerque, New Mexico (The Pulse of New Mexico)
I hear there's a seismic zone that runs along the Rio Grande's route into New Mexico.

There's a lot of California and Louisiana entries in here, probably because I said that being near a beach is important to me.
Louisiana has a minimum of beaches; mostly tidal flats.
I really don't think I'd move to any of these places except Honolulu. :-) While Vegas is a great place to visit, I don't think I'd really want to live there.
Hawaii has WAY too many people, and cows and pigs. Only indigenous Hawaiians deserve to live there, as well as people who can restore it's environment.

Portland is only about an hour from the beach! But the water is cold as hell! Still, I recommend Portland highly.
Would that be Maine or Oregon?

You want beaches? how about the Bahamas (possible future state?) Or Belize? They could use the economic boost.
And to my knowledge, Roswell N.M. is the city least at risk for both tornadoes AND earthquakes.
