Every year around 5 million Americans move between states. And, in terms of economic growth, that means so states fare better than others. Palm Beachers will not be surprised to hear that (according to Bloomberg News) Florida is now the nation’s top financial magnet, reeling in $17.2 billion worth of new residents, which is about seven times the amounts netted by each of the runners-up Texas, Washington and South Carolina. The Sunshine State was the No. 1 recipient of the wealth exodus from 18 individual states—with New York, Illinois and New Jersey combining to contribute about $8 billion to Florida’s income base.

This is good news for South Florida and even better news for young families in the Palm Beaches because it means more jobs and greater…

If you have heard people talking about the Spring Equinox or have seen it on Google without knowing what it is, don’t worry! We’re here to help.

The Equinox marks the beginning of Spring. It is commonly regarded as the instant of time when the plane of Earth's equator passes through the center of the Sun.

In recognition of Thanksgiving, today’s fun fact is this: Benjamin Franklin was not a fan of the bald eagle being our national bird, and he preferred it the turkey.
