Correct about the gift tax. Paid (if due) by the donor. Though there's a substantial lifetime exemption before gift tax is actually owed. How the 250K is taken account in the division of assets pursuant to your divorce, I don't know. [ Reply | More ]

That post haunted me all evening too. As my dh said, you never know what's real on UB. Also, he's a biglaw partner and agrees with me that any biglaw partner who claims to have a decent family life is lying. Very few people write books, and there are plenty of crap books published. If any of those ladies were real, more power to them, but let's remember how rare it is to have that kind of success. [ Reply | More ]

I was pretty much thinking the same think as your DH. Anyone can write a book and even get it published, I know many who did and none have been successful. Aside from that, you have no idea what these people look like (you'd be surprised how much that changes one's opinion of a person), and lots sounded like they have significant issues in their personal lives, that they are glossing over. And sure most are lying. Don't let it bother you at all. Your married, healthy, happy....that's all that matters. [ Reply | More ]

PP: It is great that you have been so successful. I know about about 15 - 20 people who have published books (from college and from the university where I worked). I bought almost all of them, but maybe one had moderate success in academic circles (not commerical success). I also have a relative who is an agent at a very small literary agency, and they represent authors whose books are not very good at all. I have tried to find some gems from the authors she reps but I think her agency is just too small to attract serious talent. Even their YA stuff is weak. You've been successful and clearly can write, but not everyone who is published can claim the same. It's not mockery; it's objective fact. [ Reply | More ]

I'm slightly further along than your DD with my first. My first appt was around 10 weeks. Dr. gave me an information packet with all the guidelines, health info, timeline, tests, etc. and explained everything to me and we went through my medical history. I only had a couple questions about food and exercise. The rest was all pretty straightforward in the packet. If she's interested in finding out the sex early, she can get the Panorama or Maternity21 test. Looks for down syndrome, trisomy, etc. but also can tell the sex. [ Reply | More ]

She should find out the timeline of tests she will have to have done, when and where to schedule her ultrasound/sonogram. Dr will probably tell you hormone level though at 12 weeks everything is probably going nicely. I went at around 5 weeks and it was too early to hear the heartbeat and I went to the next appt nervous that the hormone level would still be increasing and the heartbeat would be ok. Your DD is smart to go at 12 weeks. I will wait next child as well. [ Reply | More ]
