    That's much smarter because it's much more efficient.

    Well, you are an attorney! You would think it's more efficient. The reality (for me anyway) is it's not. Certainly a case by case situation. These accounts my dad has need management. Beneficiaries are only part of the picture and let's not even dive into the quirks of Probate Law after the fact! There is no wondering about what to do here. I've consolidated what was once a nightmare across a doz banks and 20 accounts down to just 4 banks. All real property has already been conveyed and PODs have been verified for the larger accounts (CDs and IRAs). Around here the Probate process seems frozen while a "notice of probate" is published in the local newspaper for at least 30 days. Sometime after that, you might get that Letter of Testamentary if our Probate Judge is so inclined to oblige.  

  2. That's crazy. I went to the bank, set up beneficiaries on all my dads accounts per some good advice here. 5 years go by and I go back to verify those said beneficiaries for good measure. They only had 2 out of the 3 that were originally set up..............Totally dropped one person off the map. Isn't that comforting?

    does your son spend a long time warming his arm up before a game or practice?

    I would say a good 30 minutes warming up, but I suspect this problem is from many years of overuse as much as anything. He has pitched one game and then caught 2 games in 24 hrs more times than I can count. Doc. thinks the ligament might simply be "worn out".  His coach told him today to get a new glove and start working with throwing lefty and he would use him on 1st. He is our still our DH and batting is unaffected by the problem. We'll see what happens.

    they say the actual Covid numbers are skewed because of disruptions due to the winter storm

    It does seem in my area that cases are down. I know of fewer people getting it. At one point I personally knew maybe 2 dozen people with it. Right now I only know 1 person with it. A small sample I know, but it seems to parallel reports on TV.

    These are not a substitute for the grid and shouldn't be run 24/7.

    That's right, unless you've got some serious bank. There were 2 of us that worked in New Orleans for Norfolk Southern in the aftermath of Katrina as their maintenance guys. We had (2) 250Kw Gensets + one 125kw providing power for a kitchen, dining room, 2 doz campers, and power for reconstruction of yard tower, RR motel, etc. Each month the number one expense was power and it was by a landslide. Other expensive stuff was portable toilets, handwashing stations, on site laundry service, fresh water that was trucked in, etc.
