However, the name Donald has DROPPED 50% in popularity. And the boys’ names that make the most money are Oscar and George. Names that make the least money are Jack and Jacob. Money makers for girls? Lily and Isabella. Least? Olivia and Jessica.

Money Magazine with the annual ‘Best Community to Live In’ pick for each state. In Connecticut? Manchester. Chosen for affordability, quality of life, and easy commute.

Their daughters have dogs and if the dogs track anything on to the carpet inside, Rod goes out to the lawn, recovers their poop and places it under the seats of their daughters’ cars. Ewww!
