GMAC Bank’s Website is Down

Wednesday, September 26th, 2007

Hurricane Rita hit my hometown. It’s hard to believe it was two years ago! I still have a tree trunk in my back yard that I’m too cheap to have cut out. It’s an eyesore but a great reminder of just how strong a hurricane can be. Anyway, for those of you who are interested, […]
