Home Sweet Home

Just got this info from KPLC TV (Lake Charles, LA) web site. According to Morgan Quitno, Louisiana is the "Most Unlivable" state! This should help convice my dear husband that we should move to Louisiana. Anyone want to move with me? :) With back to back hurricanes it comes as no surprise that the Bayou State is dead last in a newly released report of the most livable states. Here are some of the stats they quoted: Poverty -- 45 (ranking among 50 states) Percentage of households receiving food stamps -- 50 Residents with no health insurance -- 45 Average monthly electric bill -- 46 High school graduation rate -- 47 Teen pregnancy -- 44 Infant mortality rate -- 49 Highway fatalities involving alcohol -- 49 And, another interesting fact - Rounding the bottom five were South Carolina, Kentucky, Arkansas and Mississippi. Guess there's not much difference in living in Kentucky or Louisiana . . just so there's a fire station close by, I should be ok! :) Judy L.


  • These stats don't surprise me in the least. But I'd still move back there in a heartbeat ... there's no place like home!

  • Hmmmm...I wonder where North Dakota was on that list. ???

    Boy! Sorry about all of the bad luck in your house with fires, Judy! I had nearly the same experience with our self-cleaning oven the first time that I used that feature. I have since resorted to good ole elbow grease and plain old cleaner.

    Thank goodness everyone is allright!

  • Judy, your luck has to change soon! The last time I cleaned my oven I had a little fire also - I shouldn't wait so long to do it! Luckily it used up all the available oxygen in the oven and went out almost right away. Scared me to death however!

  • At least you are getting all your bad luck over with at once! I would love to move but I want closer to snow country.

  • I'm surprised Georgia's not in the bottom 5. The south doesn't come out well in that survey does it?

  • Gosh Judy, that's gotta be soooo depressing coming on top of all the "stuff" that has been happening to you latey.
    I knew I should have read "When Bad Things Happen to Good People", but I didn't (red face here).

    What I can say tho, stats aside, is that the heart wants what the heart wants, and the mind(or the stats) have little do with it.

    If it's where you want to be, don't let anything stop you..*VBS* Big hugs for all the close calls, Finn

  • Texas is nice Judy and close to LA !

  • You can be my neighbor and not even live in a state....

    Maybe LA is a "cheaper" state becasue of those rankings? (The south usually is... I know several people who moved to Miss., Ala., & S.C. to retire...)
