Default Great stuff

California is our big brother........remember the song ? " Me and baby brother...used to run together " ?

Baby brother is an adult now. A young adult but an adult nonetheless. And like you big brother, we will kick a_ _ and take names later.

don't know how really impressive this "ranking" is.....the British group which made this list up seems to be ranking cities only on their "external relationship" to other cities.....or something..........

Comparing high rise condos to other cities, Phoenix isn't bad as far as price and for what you get. But I don't know how HOA's are outside of AZ, but they are no bueno here.

They rank the city by international law , accountant , financial services firms and totally ignore a city GNP as Los Angeles would be 3rd in the World with Toyko 1st in THE WORLD something that NYC and LONDON could never allow......LOL
