I'm surprised. I didn't expect Boston to be over Chicago.  Especially Kansas City and Atlanta.

 A strange metric... based on the population?!?!  I'd have to think it's NYC... Chicago... LA... Washington DC... Dallas (for some reason more than Houston)... San Fran.... Boston (maybe) .... Atlanta (maybe).... Miami (it'd be more often but it's sort of bland)... Seattle or Houston (bland also).

Hopefully the new Waldorf Astoria tower will make the skyline less bland here

The new Metro ordinance that prohibits the possession and consumption of open containers of alcohol on unenclosed transportainment vehicles went into effect yesterday.

If you've been to Bridgestone the last couple of weeks you might've noticed some big red vending machines outside.  They're called Giving Machines, and Nashville is one of just 10 cities to have them this year, and one of only two cities east of the Mississippi (NYC is the other).  One hundred percent of what you give goes directly to the charities involved, and the sponsor of the Giving Machines (the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) will even cover your credit card fees.  There are five local charities:  

ABLE Youth - supports children and young adults who are wheelchair bound

Elmahaba Center - a cultural community center for Nashville's immigrant communities, particularly Nashville's large Kurdish and Coptic communities.

Nashville International Center for Empowerment (N.I.C.E.) - provides education, resettlement, health, employment, and immigration services for the thousands of international refugees in Nashville.

One Generation Away - started in 2013 out of a couple's car, One Generation now provides 4.4 million meals a year to needy Middle Tennesseans and in three other states.

Sleep in Heavenly Peace - a volunteer organization that builds beds for kids who otherwise would sleep on floors.

The global charities are UNICEF and CARE.

Items are as cheap as $2 or as expensive as a couple hundred.  Again, 100% of the money goes to the charities.

I saw those walking by and wondered what they were. I’ll have to stop by next time!

This article written by Bill Frist just appeared in Forbes - relating what Nashville learned through its Covid-19 response and initiatives. Including the good, and the bad. I found it interesting.

Nashville area home sales in November were up 9% over the same month in 2020.  

The median price for a single-family home was $425,000; for a condominium it was $298,050. Last year those prices were $350,000 and $244,900, respectively. While sales increased, the region’s inventory continued to decline. There were 4,732 homes available at the end of November, a decrease of 6,200 from the same time period last year.
