Our first Saturday Stat of 2015 is a big one. National Geographic has placed San Jose in the Top 10 Happiest Cities... not in the US but in the World! Also included in the list is the Gold Coast of Australia, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Auckland in New Zealand, and Dubai. Don't ask me what the criteria was because it was not disclosed in the article. However, it did mention two dozen community gardens in San Jose, plenty of organic produce, and lots of sunshine.
