ADVICE FOR EXECUTOR/PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE OF ESTATES TO BE PROBATED IN MARYLAND
Not many people are visting this page any more, but this document
seems to be generating a fair amount of attention. And with good reason. So I've moved it
towards the top of the page. :-)
After having run both Mom's and Dad's Estates through the
Maryland probate process, I have some ADVICE TO WOULD-BE EXECUTORS:
Lessons Learned If You've Been Appointed as an Executor/Personal Representative of an
Estate to be Probated in Maryland.
Jack is working at Edwards Air Force Base in the Mojave "high desert" near Lancaster, California--which
is about an hour and a half north of Los Angeles, on the other side of the San Gabriel Mountains.
Let's see ... what can we tell you? He lives in Lancaster, he's a civilian employee, he's an engineer,
and he drives a Prius. But that's about it. :-) We can point you to the Wikipedia entry for
Edwards, and the the entry for
and even for the rest of the Antelope Valley.
But no more details and no fair asking :-)
Sadly, we are selling the Boathouse on Broad Creek!
We loved is SO MUCH. But we've gotta start looking for a longer-term retirement choice, and you can't
live on Broad Creek year round.
Where is the boathouse? Generally, we're in the
far northeast corner of Maryland,
on a little creek that occasionally feeds the part of the Susquehanna River that's been
dammed up to create the Conowingo Reservoir. (Oh that wasn't easy. :-)
The US Postal Service says we're in Whiteford, MD.
But houses on the other side of the creek are in Darlington MD. (Yep, the creek is the
And actually we're closest to Dublin MD, but Dublin doesn't have a Post Office.
We're where Flintville Road crosses Broad Creek.
The creek itself empties into Conowingo Lake, which is the resevoir above
Conowingo Dam across the Susquehanna that's been
dammed up to create the Conowingo Reservoir. :-) Which puts us
just a couple miles south of the Pennsylvania border, in Harford County.
Interestingly, Dad's genealogical research says that when the Allisons first came to
America (at the time, the British colonies) ... the Allisons settled in Harford County!
In Sarah Jane news, our fave rave New York City Stage Manager is firmly entrenched in Manhattan East.
Over by the UN building.
Very cool. Very NYC. Meanwhile, rev up your browser
and cruise on over to the SJALLISON.COM WEBSITE!
Pretty fun, eh? Right now, it's mostly a brochure (and a tiny one at that), but it's hers, it's about her, and it's
Yet Another Piece of Her Overall Marketing Package. (Hehe!) I'm tickled pink!
OK, this was a lot of fun: As many of you know, Dad ran the website for
Marshall High School's football team (where Jack played football for four years).
Well... in the tenth week of the season, he got a huge surprise when the
National Football League--through its High School outreach program,
marshallfootball.org as its
"NFLHS.com Showcase Site of the Week"! (You're kidding!) (No, we're not!)
(That was so cool!) Sometime about ten years from now, Dad plans to
come down off the ceiling. And to put a wonderful cap on an already-terrific
week, Marshall High School gave Dad a varsity letter at the Fall Sports Awards
Sarah Jane is On Broadway Again!
After its debut just six years ago,
The Lion King
has become the top-grossing Broadway show of all time, the most-attended
Broadway show in history, and is already the fifth longest-running production
among current Broadway shows. (They sell 99.90% of all their seats--third highest in
And now, they can add to their list of credits and accomplishments
the addition of Sarah Jane Allison as an Assistant Stage Manager!
The Lion King is at the New Amsterdam Theater, at 214 West 42nd Street,
which is now being touted as The Crown Jewel of 42nd Street.
Such is life in the business. Lion King, Harleys ... and The Donkey Show--at the Club El Flamingo
(Off Broadway on West 21st). The Donkey Show is a rather-noticeably updated version of
Sheakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream"--done to disco. According to the Web site (at
www.thedonkeyshow.com), "THE DONKEY SHOW is
the ultimate disco experience - a crazy circus of mirror balls and feathered divas,
of glittered roller skaters and hustle queens. THE DONKEY SHOW welcomes you into a
magic fantasia where you are free, where you are fabulous, and anything can happen."
Trip reports from people who've actually gone to the show indicate that when
they say "disco," they don't mean your average midwest American Bandstand
version of disco. (This ain't your grandfather's Saturday Night Fever.)
No, this is serious New-York-City-excess disco. With emphasis on the "excess." Wow.
(Burn baby burn! :-)
Uh oh. Those recipes are here. Surly Ol' Burge cooks
pork n' beans.
Good and good for ya'.
