Re: On naming an executor

November 2014 Codicil for Dogs

In the event of my death, I direct that any pembroke welsh corgis or any dogs I own at the time of my death be placed in loving permanent homes. If such homes cannot be found by the executors of my trust, the [more]

Re: Planning for health issues

idelity has a planner that suggests that a 65 year old couple retiring in 2014 would need an average of $220k in today's dollars to cover the typical retirement until 82 for the man and 85 for the woman. Here's an article that has a link to the [more]

Re: Disposing Of Collections Of Stuff

Don't be shocked if your prized collections isn't worth what you think it's worth though. Not unless it's something from 15th Century or something.

Isn't that usually the case? Sigh.

Re: On naming an executor

Another thing...I am seeing probate mentioned. Because I have a Revocable Trust and everything else has designated beneficiaries, there will be NO probate on my estate.

There are some annoying things that related executors must [more]

Re: On naming an executor

I am going through redoing my Revocable Trust as I write. If you do not name a family member, your estate will most likely be charged a fee. I named both my daughters as executors. All they need do is pay the bills, sell what they don't want, sell [more]

Re: Java Runtime Environment Help

I don't know. I never had these requests when on Mavericks. I assumed that Java wanted a Yosemite compliant version...I clicked on the link, downloaded, installed, and it opened in the Oracle website and said it was recognized. Crazy.

Java Runtime Environment Help

Ever since I upgraded to Yosemite, I keep getting notice blocks to install Java Runtime Environment. I have done this install successfully multiple times, yet the notice keeps reappearing. What's up with this?

Quicken 2015?

Is Quicken 2015 compatible with Yosemite? Seems I have to upgrade from 2007 to download from Discover.

Is Essentials compatible? Looks like it has not been upgraded at all.

Thanks, Birgit

Re: Retired with equity funds

Likely, that $50,000 would be only a small portion of your total assets.

Aha....I thought the advice was to put all assets in CDs! In that case I agree it is a good idea to have enough held in cash in case of a market collapse. I am [more]

Re: Retired with equity funds

and a five year ladder of bonds/CDs to protect you.


I am curious. Have the interest rates on bonds/CDs gone up? I would have to have some really enormous bonds/CD's to live off their 2% or less interest rates.

Re: Yosemite Upgrade?

Thanks Loren...I always have a current clone. I think I am waiting for an Yosemite update before installing. I did try it on my laptop early on and it was a disaster...have no clue why.
