Now you know the real reason I'm so full of sweetness and light. :)

Happiness Index: Nebraska Nabs Top Spot - 06 Apr 09 - MainStreet.com

"The Cornhusker state was awarded the top ranking because:

* It ranked 2nd overall in lowest number of foreclosures
* It ranked 2nd in lowest unemployment rates
* It ranked 5th in lowest percentage of non-mortgage debt by income"


"Contrary to popular wisdom that densely populated urban areas of the country have 'recession-proof' housing markets and boast impressively high average salary ranges, The Happiness Index suggests that the Midwest is the main source of financial happiness. After Nebraska in the top spot, Iowa and Kansas came in at 2 and 3 on the list of the most financially happy states.

Other states did better than Nebraska in particular areas, but none had a higher blended average."


Lincoln does pretty good in the business and career rankings too.
