Surprise! London is # 3

Cheer up sno-birds, global warming is putting London on the map. Although we still shovel snow for four months, London Ontario is a great place to retire -at least according to Geography Professor, Dr. Warren H. Bland. The well-traveled prof just published a 300 page book, Retire in Style: 60 Outstanding Places across the U.S.A. and Canada.
On his 12-point ranking, London comes in 3rd, behind 1st place Victoria, BC and 2nd place Boulder, Colorado.
For the full scoop on London, the Chamber of Commerce and the big real estate offices can order the book; the rest of us can start with a book review by Robert H. Bruss.

Surprise, surprise.
Would be interesting to read prof.s justification of London Ont ranking right behind Boulder...
Might be part of the team the ranked UWO females second best looking on the continent, just behind, I think it was, UCLA or UCSF....
Enjoy your retirement!

Thanks for that, raj. Old codgers appreciate the influx of shapely students. The inclusion of such a "spectator sport" vaults London to the top of the class
