They say the devil's in the details. Why are "they" always right.
I'm trying to cap off, so to speak, the subjects I feel good about so I can narrow the field of critical subjects for the last push. Community Property is put away and I'm working on Wills right now. When I say "put away" I mean that it's not going to be looked at again until the last weekend.
I found a Wills essay (July '06) that created a trust and the designated trustee was one of the two witnesses. Also, the trustee typed the will for the physically disabled testator and signed the will in the testator's name when asked. So, we have a witness, who also acted as the testator in signing the will, who's also the designated trustee for a trust created by the will.
In my outline I had decided that being a trustee isn't equivalent to "taking" under the will, because notwithstanding the fee paid to a trustee, that's more of a burden than a benefit. But I wasn't sure so I looked at the released answers. One of them agreed with me and said it was because of California law, and the other simply came to same conclusion without mentioning California. I looked for the statute but came up empty.
That's when I said "Blast".
Then I said, "What the heck. Can't know it all.", and moved on.
Switching channels now...
Culinary observation: Lean Cuisines taste better with a lot of salt. And pepper. But that probably defeats the purpose.
Protein shakes with yogurt, bananas, strawberries and apple juice taste great. But don't make them three days in a row when on the fourth day you have to go out in public for more than 15 minutes. You might be able to get away with it if you were standing outside. And it was windy. And noisy.
My tutor's holding a class tonight. Indoors. Four hours. Wish me luck.
