Show Notes for Thursday, September 30, 2021


Dear John,

I've been saving up money for a down payment on a home. I almost bought one last year, but I decided to wait a little longer to save up even more. Then, during the last year, my girlfriend and I spent most of the time together and we decided to get married. That probably makes more sense anyway. My problem is this. She wants me to dip into the down payment fund to pay for an extravagant wedding. I'd like something simple. I said I'm comfortable with $4500 for the wedding and reception. I priced it out and we can have a very nice small event. She thinks we need something bigger. Her parents can't help since their company closed last year. They're on my side with the small wedding. I said we could make it up with a nice vacation for our anniversary every few years. That's not helping. Any ideas? I'd love to have the perfect wedding for my fiancé, but I also think we need to focus on getting a home purchased too! Please help!

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

There’s some suspicious money floating around Georgia. Fake $100 bills were shot out of a cannon during a homecoming celebration, according to the Hazlehurst Police Department. The bills may look real on the surface, but if you look closer the words “For Motion Picture Use Only” are printed on the front and back of the bills. “Please spread the word,” the police department said on Facebook. “The photos show a couple of examples of the fake money used.” This isn’t the first time fake money has spread around Georgia. The Rabun County Sheriff’s Office issued a similar warning in August. Shooting fake money out of a cannon probably wasn’t the smartest idea. (
