Thanks, Badger and Pixy for your replies.

Pixy said, ... We don't know your tax situation or
your ultimate desires for distribution. Even if we did, it might not be enough to
provide a considered answer. Only your tax advisor, estate planning attorney or
financial planner (or all acting together) can adequately address these issues.

I agree you can find a wealth of
information available on our boards. But I worry a lot when I see questions such
as yours. I fear you may take our responses as gospel, and that's far from true.
Use our responses as background only for knowledgeable discussions with the
professionals you consult. Those are the folks who should be providing you the
alternatives so you can make the decisions that are best for you.

Pixy, I understand what you are saying. Because I'm such a novice at managing finances, I don't even realize which of my questions are beyond the area of the Fool. My husband knows this too, and would never just take my newly learned idea of the day and implement it! He's so busy writing these grants, he doesn't have time right now and says we'll see someone professional later. So I ask these things as I think of them. Thanks for your time, I appreciate it. meowiz
