We're one in 25!

Or ...we're number nine! We're number nine! Flower Mound makes BusinessWeek.com's 25 best affordable suburbs. (Via Pegasus News.) Click on the slide show to view a picture of ...Dallas! I think they should have published a picture of Flower Mound or the mound itself, but since they didn't I'm doing it for you. Notice the dark singe at the top. I think some teens were smoking up there and accidentally started a fire. If you can avert your eyes from the picture of the glorious mound for a moment, here are the stats of the town for which it was named:

Median Home Price: $211,700
Cost of Living Index: 108.3
Violent Crime Index: 48
Secondary School Test Scores Index: 104

Click on the link to find out what the indexes mean; I can tell you that homes built twenty years ago (uh, at least ours) are not selling for what's quoted above.

Wow that's pretty cool!!

Have you read the sign yet next to the fence that reads:
"The Mound" watches over us and protects us, "The Mound" provides all that we need, "The Mound" unconditionally loves all of us, give yourself unto "The Mound" and ye shall be rewarded.

I bow before "The Mound" daily and pay tribute in ritualistic suburban housewifery ways. The ritual involves my SUV and a Tall Skinny Latte, but that is all I will reveal to you about it!
