Subject: Dear Santa

After reading Nick's post here<<>> I wanted to share this letter I read-to Santa(and I could feel the same way too lol) "Dear Santa, this year(Christmas 2016) please send me a fat bank account and a slim body. Please do not confuse the two like you did last year". I am officially on SS now-meaning way less money :( so I really may need Santa's help to fatten my bank account up more . Some good news I also heard was when one turns 70 in Oklahoma-they do not have to do jury duty anymore(as in yaaa!!!) and when one is over 65-they do not have to pay for their driver license renewal!"

Hello to all my friends, co-workers, and people I do not know, who view this site. I would like to wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas and happy Holiday Season. May Santa be good to you all and may you all prosper in both health and wealth in the new year. To those of you who have lost love ones in 2014 and earlier, my condolences to you all and may time heal your empty hearts. I worked for General Motors for 30.5 years and in many ways, General Motors is the only family I ever knew. My love goes out to you all. Thanks, Nick.

Subject: GM's recent success and UAW pension and VEBA

First of all I pray this message finds everyone doing well!! And want to let you know I'm praying for all my fellow UAW brothers and sisters. Does anyone know if GM still owes money to our pension and VEBA? It's seems I remember GM oweing about 10 billion to each before they filed for bankruptcy in 2010. Wondering if these debts were wiped out in the bankruptcy or if GM is supposed to make good when their bottom line improved? Does anyone know where we can research this information? Thanks!!!
