    Anyone Know Anything About Evansville, Indiana?

    I may possible relocate. Can't say much at the time, and this may be a longshot.

    (And don't tell me what you've read online - I have Google, too).
    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    On the Ohio River IIRC my geography correctly. That's about it.

    Well, I knew that much, ha ha.


    From what I'm reading, it seems okay but has an inordinately high crime rate. Of course, I lived in Little Rock when it was Murdertown back in the mid-90s, and I never had a problem because most of the time the high crime is isolated in a particular area of the city, and you avoid it by not going there. It appears to be kind of like where I'm living now except a higher crime rate (the COL analysis shows it to be slightly more expensive but any pay increase I'm willing to move to accept will drastically offset that tiny fraction).

    Btw - those of you on FB with me don't mention this for some rather obvious reasons.

    I visited there in 1970? for the DII basketball championship. Philadelphia Textile vs somebody. It was dark and we didn't stay long. There is a college in Evansville. You're welcome

    I think there are a couple of casinos in Evansville. You could take your pay increase and head over to the casinos and double or even triple your money.

    I think Evansville would be a nice place to live. South Indiana on the Ohio River. Those old river towns are interesting.
    Go west young man!

    This reminds me of RFK in a speech saying that he had told LBJ he was going to run for President and asked him if he had any advice. LBJ said, "Go west young man," to which RFK said, "But I was in California at the time......"

    I kinda think maybe the same thing possibly perhaps.

    Well, I AM in Dallas right now so........


    Actually, I'm in Denton, which is funny because they still talk about them there Von Erich wrassling boys from back in the 80s. Working in the hospital......let's just say it has exposed me to an entirely different side of the sports scene in Dallas......that's all I can say here.

    I could also fold my money in half to double it - and it's no risk!!!
