Same here M-5 If you change "Texas" to "Dallas" it should be on the bottom of the list followed by Austin, then San Antone, then Houston.

I could retire to Navarre Beach, Florida just fine.


When I was a child, my parents went to Florida pretty often, my aunt and uncle had property in Ft. Myers.
It was nice to visit, but I am not real big on beaches and the crowds and traffic that amass around them.
That being said, I have often said that my ideal retirement dream would be to retire somewhere in central Florida, so I could fish in the lakes, and still be around some farming. Went to the stockyards there in Webster once.


I've been told that central Florida has some pretty good cattle volume. However, the same guy told me that Florida had more cows than Texas too.

Florida is a large beef and milk producing state but since they figured out they could make more per acre selling it into sub divisions a lot of cow land has been developed. FL ranks about 12th in numbers but I seem to recall we would be higher if land mass is accounted for vs number of head

Florida has three ranches in the top 5 for the most cattle in the US. And the Deseret ranch in Florida has the largest amount of cattle in the country.

I'm not surprised Minnesotax made #2. What with all the new buffer strips going in, that wonderful new MNLARS system that makes our vehicle registration as pleasant as a frolic in the autumn mist, and let's not forget the amazing new stadium that has most likely paid for itself 10 times over by now.
Plus when the last of those greedy businesses finally get taxed out to other states there will be plenty of vacancy for more affordable housing for the poor folks not lucky enough to live where they voted themselves a 'living wage ' flipping burgers.

Panhandle, North Florida, central Florida and Cuba . All with distinct difference. Here is a little pic of 6 ways to divide it I thought accurately describes it also.

When I lived in Pensacola, the locals told me the whole panhandle was really just South Alabama...tho from what I've heard recently, Nuevo Alabama would be more accurate now. .
