It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these, but when there’s a lot to do in a small amount of time, you can forget that YOU the listener may want to know a little more information then I shared on the show. Happy to give you a head’s up on what’s happening here in East Texas and hopefully helpful tips from around the country:
RECALL: Yes, this is part 24 of the GM Recall of Craziness that just continues to go on (okay, maybe I’m exaggerating just a little bit). So far, the company is quite a few million in the hole with numerous parts being shipped across the country to help make their cars safe once again. This next round:
- Buick Lacrosse, 2005-09.
- Chevrolet Impala, 2006-14.
- Cadillac Deville, 2000–05.
- Cadillac DTS, 2004–11.
- Buick Lucerne, 2006–11.
- Buick Regal LS & GS, 2004–05.
- Chevy Monte Carlo, 2006–08.

Well, if they work for Starbucks, they may have the chance of doing that, with either a partial or full scholarship given to them.

SCAM Alert: The BBB has come across a Secret Shopper Scam on Craigslist you want to stay away from. The post claims to send you a packet so you can complete a “Home Depot Survey.” What ends up happening is they’ll send you a packet with a FAKE $300 check, instructing you to deposit it and wire the money their way. Back away slowly and report this immediately.
