I'm originally from Wyoming.........it's the wind.  Seriously!

And I find it funny that they are number 1 but like number 4 on the best state in a different post.  Interesting!

Wow. Nebraska at number 40. Further down the list than I would have thought. It's BORING here.

Well, occasionally it's not. Like after a tornado.

Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. - Michael Pollan

And while you're at it, remember that when you purchase food, you're voting with your dollar. Local farms, diversity, sustainability- all these should be positively answered by your vote.
