Here’s What Heirs Think

CAMARILLO, Calif., Sept. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Baby Boomers, in droves, are caring for aging parents, doing their own estate plans, and perhaps most challenging, settling their parents’ estates. These newly released survey results of thousands of heirs, shed light on what to expect when planning your own estate or when settling your parent’s.

Boomers are helping parents downsize and move, and ultimately when they pass away, they deal with loss, grief, and estate settlement, including navigating the fairness issues and personalities of their sibling heirs. The task of dividing, donating or selling the personal property (furniture, art, personal effects, jewelry, etc.) is often the part that can most easily lead to family conflict. Simultaneously, Boomers are experiencing their own health challenges, or Covid is raising awareness, so they are now working on their own estate plans.

7 Easy Smart Home Essentials for Renters

You can do big things in small homes—even homes you don’t own. Apartment (and house) renters can put smart-home technology to work to make their home more comfortable and convenient, all without renovating, rewiring, or doing anything else that will whittle down their security deposit. Here are a few easy-to-use, affordable options we recommend for renters or anyone who doesn’t want to break a sweat to smarten up their home.

Smart bulbs

Smart lighting allows you to bypass flipping switches and instead control lights remotely, put them on a schedule, or trigger them via cameras, sensors, and other smart devices. This ensures that you never have to leave or enter a dark room. A homeowner can install smart switches and dimmers, but that’s a permanent approach that requires wiring; a renter is better off simply screwing in a smart bulb. These bulbs can do everything a smart

Mould woes add strain for Melbourne renters during coronavirus stage 4 lockdown

Camping in the loungeroom sounds like the stuff of lockdown adventures, but it has become a tiring necessity for one family in Melbourne’s north.

Ellice Blakeney and her husband Ethan Widin first dismissed the mould growing in their Reservoir home as part of living in an old house during a Melbourne winter.

It was only when Ms Blakeney opened a drawer of clothes barely worn since the pandemic hit that she discovered the extent of the issue.

“Everything was covered in that white-blue horror-story mould,” she said.

“The furniture, when we pulled it out from the wall, everything just felt damp.”

The parents, now worried their one-year-old’s rattly chest had more sinister origins, shifted everyone into the loungeroom.

Testing revealed the presence of hazardous black mould at four times above safe levels.

Ms Blakeney and Mr Widin decided to move, and have even found a new house — but everything

Mounting concerns over years worth of trash piled up in Red Canyon waterway from illegal dumping

When Jonathon Dunn moved to the Red Canyon area two decades ago, he was unaware of the illegal dumping that took place in the scenic area south of Glenwood Springs.

Known for its vast views and daunting drops, Dunn recalled asking three people he once saw pushing a vehicle along Red Canyon Road if everything was OK and if they needed any help.

According to Dunn, the three individuals declined any assistance.

“The next time that I came down, that car was in the bottom of the canyon,” Dunn said of the vehicle that still sits there today. “That car is now 90 percent buried by debris.”

“It is not just a question of bringing up a few bags of trash. We are talking about twenty years
