    Having traveled throughout the world, why do I stay in Madison? Voted best place in the U.S. to raise your children in Life Magazine in 1949, my birth year, and again the same honor in 1999 there must be something about Madtown that shines above all. It is the people. Much diversity and down home midwest mentality combine to make Madison low on crime and high on good neighbors. I was born here and it feels like home to this day. Blessings to all,,,,,Uncle Jeff
