Some even work best if allowed to sit overnight in the dye, which takes some time to prepare. Get some containers (large plastic disposable tumblers work well for individual eggs), vinegar, and an apron or old clothes; then gather the supplies for dye and get ready to create! Prepare the Eggs You’ll want to boil the eggs in a saucepan with plenty of space, so they don’t bump into each other and crack. Cover with an inch of water, bring just to boiling, and then remove from heat, letting the eggs stand in hot water for about 12 minutes (a little more for larger eggs). Drain, run cold water over the eggs, and refrigerate until ready to decorate. Another option is to make blownout eggs, which can be kept for years. Use a pin or small nail to poke holes in either end of a raw egg, making one slightly larger than the other. To avoid cracks, place a small piece of transparent tape on the shell before Fruits & Veggies Just about any bold-colored produce that stains your fingers or cutting boards will make good material for dye.

www.SouthwestOrlandoBulletin.com x March 15 — April 4, 2018 x 7 GIMMIE WARS - Woes of Probate by: Kristen M. Jackson / Attorney Gimmie the gun collection. No, dad and I hunted together, not you, and he wanted me to have the guns when he died. Gimmie the coin collection. No, mom and I started that coin collection together when I was a little girl and she said it would be mine when she died. Gimmie the car. No! Gimmie the house. No! Gimmie this and gimmie that. No..No..No! It turns into the Gimmie Wars and ends up in the hands of attorneys to settle in probate court. Upon their deaths, parents one and all believe that their children forever and always will maintain close and loving relationships with each other. That may be true of parents that have nothing to leave their children to fight over. On the other hand, for those with assets at the time of their death, regardless of how much or how little, the challenge of who gets what more often than not escalates into conflict among siblings or other beneficiaries. Estate conflicts most often are stimulated by unadulterated greed and piggishness among the siblings ending up in an outright war over their parents’ assets. Unfortunately, parents too often believe that should any of their assets survive them, such assets will automatically go to their children or other heirs. Not true nor guaranteed unless the parent has either prepared a last will, trust or some other form of estate planning that transfers their assets into their children’s names. The cost for estate planning is the primary excuse parents make for doing nothing to settle their estate once they have died. They just can’t justify paying an attorney in exchange for pieces of paper that state at their death someone else shall receive what took them a lifetime to acquire. What is the cost of these pieces of paper versus the cost to their children to probate their estate? To have a simple estate plan prepared for assets including a car, home, bank accounts, investments and insurance policies may cost less than a thousand to several thousand dollars depending on the experience of the attorney and the complexity of the plan. Whereas the cost of probate may be between 3% to 6% or more of the total assets to hire attorneys and pay for court costs, publication fees, administrative fees, litigation or other expenses. In other words, it could cost thousands more for a probate proceeding than the cost to implement an estate plan. Also, be aware that the probate process can take up to a year or longer before beneficiaries ever see a dime of their parents’ estate. In Florida, beneficiaries must hire an attorney to probate an estate. Eliminate the Woes of Probate and an all out Gimmie War over who will pay probate attorneys, who will get the gimmies, and resolving why mom and dad left such a chaotic state of affairs requiring attorneys and courts to resolve disputes over what should rightfully belong to the children or beneficiaries already? Call an Estate Planning and Probate Attorney if you need to probate an estate or would like to discuss estate planning and how avoid the chaotic outcome of the Gimmie Wars.
