Elderly persons with wealth—particularly when widowed—can become prey for professionals who earn a living by soliciting money on behalf of charitable organizations. The wealthy are accustomed to receiving solicitations from myriad churches, universities, missions, hospitals and charities promising a form of immortality through the donation of monies, farms, art and other assets.  When younger they are wary, discriminating in their response; but in old age they may become susceptible.   Professor Michael Myers teaches Elderlaw and ...

Q: We recently received a bill from our veterinarian for a "DHL" vaccination for our dog. We are familiar with the "D," distemper, and the "H," hepatitis, but what is the "L"? Why is it included in the vaccine? It is hard to stay informed about all of the diseases that might affect our dog. A: The "L" in "DHL" is an abbreviation for "leptospirosis." Although leptospirosis is not diagnosed in dogs in the United ... [full story]

It is a city gone mad with flags. On every balcony and at every window are flags, banners, and gonfalons in a riot of colors to rock your senses. Around you men and women in medieval and Renaissance costume have become a singing, dancing procession carrying flowers, torches and candles, and waving flags as they recreate the conflict between the Fiumi and Nepis families, who divided the region into the Lower Part and the Upper ...

The warm embrace of the sun and the soft kiss of the wind, the tastes of freshly picked cherries and wines from a dozen rare appellations are part of Provence I will always remember. Not to mention the warmth of the friendly welcomes wherever we went, the savory fragrance wafting from a field of fully blooming lavender, and the song of the cicadas - these are my memories from a week of touring the Vaucluse ...

Collectibles relating to the farm and barnyard have a wide range, from exquisitely decorated Faberge eggs to kitschy cow-shaped creamers. Somewhere in between is the ubiquitous hen-on-nest glass-covered dish - though I must admit that I didn't realize quite how ubiquitous, and varied, this form was before encountering Shirley Smith's new "Glass Hen on Nest Covered Dishes" (Collector Books, $30) identification and value guide . The basic form - a laying hen perched atop a ... [full story]

Q: Last fall my husband and I bought the art deco woodblock print seen in this photo at an antiques shop. The dealer told us he bought it from a collector and he didn't know much about the print. It is in pristine condition and is signed "E.M. Washington" and dated 1934. We recently had it framed and the overall measurements without the frame are 10 inches by 12 inches.

Taking a toddler to Europe can add extra stress on top of unfamiliar money, new languages and exotic foods - what with strollers, car seats, diapers and sleep schedules to juggle. But going with teenagers can be even more challenging, unless you let them set the pace and tone.   HAMPTON COURT - Charlie Showley, 15 1/2, explores the medieval world of Henry VIII at Hampton Court, outside London. The castle was home to several other monarchs and ... [full story]

Got new year's plans? If you're Baha'i, you'd better. Your new year starts at sunset March 21. And if you're Buddhist, you may have recently observed the Chinese New Year along with others who follow Asian ethnic traditions. Religious new years are about as varied and numerous as faith traditions themselves. When a religion celebrates a new year depends typically on the sun and moon, and frequently which new moon or full moon falls during ... [full story]

If it's just Arnold Schwarzenegger and politics, lobbyists and budget deficits, which come to mind when you think of California's capital city, Sacramento, then think again. By the time I drove off the freeway and dropped into the downtown section of California's tree-lined capital for the first time on a Memorial Day weekend, nearly a decade ago, and heard the luscious wail of a hot clarinet coming off the street, I'd already learned my own Sacramento ...

There are times when a person may wish to avoid the opportunity to receive property or money; to reject an inheritance; to simply say, “No, thank you.” One of those times may be when you are a Medicaid beneficiary and living in a nursing home.  “Can she disclaim?  Should she disclaim?  And what happens if she does disclaim?” asked an accountant who contacted the senior legal helpline.   Professor Michael Myers teaches Elderlaw and Health Care ...

KINGDOM OF CRYSTAL, Sweden - "I love that red plate!" I called out to my husband Carl. "And want to buy it!"
