St. Paul is the 8th-least sad city in America

WE FREAKING LOVE IT HERE!
As we gird ourselves for winter, it seems worthwhile to mention that -- according to a new Men's Health article -- St. Paul people are way, way happier than the denizens of Miami, Las Vegas and Phoenix.

So they can take all that sunshine and cram it.

To make the list, the magazine used suicide rates, unemployment numbers, number of households that are on antidepressants, and the number of citizens who report feeling lousy in general. Each city got a letter grade based on the outcome.

They crunched the data for 100 U.S. cities and discovered that, statistically speaking, St. Petersburg, Florida, is the most miserable place in the country. Detroit, Memphis, Tampa and Louisville rounded out the top five most chronically-crestfallen cities.

On the other end of the spectrum, St. Paul was declared "blues-proof" earning an A- on its happiness report card. That makes it the 8th-least sad in the country (Honolulu took the title of "least sad city," which makes sense. Fargo ranked third, which does not.)

Minneapolis was not terribly far behind, earning a B+ and the 14th least-sad spot.

Read the whole list here.

It just goes to show you -- sunny can't buy you happiness.

Sports betting had been an age-old tradition found in every society. If you glance back into the history you will find that gamblers use to bet their money on just about anything unpredictable like games, animal racing or combats. The trend continues even today and betting is an interesting indulgence for sports fans and bookies all over the world. Sports betting in case popular games like soccer or baseball is carried out only during their seasons.

A lot of those cities are broke so no sunshine doesn't buy happiness.  But sunshine and money like Honolulu citizens can.  Good to know though.  Big ups to TC

Most of that happiness comes from my husband Marcus Bachmann.   The key to happiness is loving your job and there is nothing Marcus loves more than talking to young gay men about sex.

It's St. Petersburg, not "St. Petersburgh."
