When I discuss estate planning with people, I am usually met with one of two responses: “I haven’t gotten around to it,” or, “I don’t need any.”

Estate planning, or financial and health preparedness, is often presumed to be only for the elderly or the wealthy.

It hasn’t been this hot in 30 years … to the day. The high Monday of 93 degrees eclipsed the old record for the day of 91 degree in 1988. I’m not much of a thermometer watcher.

And of course California Raisins hysteria. And I do find it not entirely coincidental that we break a record from 1988 as there is talk of a remake of the movie “Willow.” We could break another record for all of this Tuesday and we’ll see what my mind does with the year of the old record if that’s the case.
