Dear Bronwyn and David,

I have become aware that I have consented to being a director with the 2 of you in the William Robert Lee Discretionary Trust. This was not my intention as I thought I was acting as an appointee only to help  facilitate payment of money owing to Georgie. I apologise for not having fully informed myself of the details but as you know I have been under stress with Mum dying and was put under more duress with the demand for early attention to Williams financial problems. My fault, I thought I was doing the right thing.

A motion was put to sell Nancy Lee’s shares to the 3 directors which I also inadvertently signed. I have become aware that this is not possible as the shares form part of Nancy Elizabeth’s Lee’s estate and as such are not capable of having trustees or appointers decide anything about them.

I will notify the Probate lawyers in the morning as to this concern and will also have to notify ASIC unless this decision is reversed as quickly as possible and probate distributed as it was meant to be to all 5 trusts.

I propose that all units be returned to the Nancy Lee estate, Thank you.

I propose that one of you or David resign as a director  and that we sharethe responsibilities on a one to one basis.

 

 

 

 

 

 

decide anything a

The Sole Director, Appointer, Guardian and Trustee, Nancy Elizabeth Lee, has died.
Her will leaves a 1 fifth share to each siblings trust or beneficiary Trust company so each unit becomes a director.

Her deed of appointment lists a joint appointee, Harold, Bronwyn and David [HBD] needing unanimous approval to get decisions passed, including the appointment of new trustees. The new trustees have a majority vote for all decisions [including new appointees??] or is this the directors.

The director status is fluid. It might be possible for any 3 siblings to become the new directors of the company, or 2 siblings and the WRLDT. In distributing the will 1/5th share in WRLDT. At Probate. If it is done in respect of the will’s instructions. Or even 2 1/2 siblings if the trust does not vote.

While such a directorship exists the trustees may be able to be renoved if the appointees give their power over to the directors?

 

The Petrie Dish SMB.

smallbluemike says:
“What exactly is our species’ end game or exit strategy if it is not to wildly rein in consumption just as fast as we can, if not faster?”
The Petrie Dish SMB.
One Agar plate, the planet.
one little group of bacteria [people] find a way to use the plate resources , sugar [oil] and start to grow. New colonies sprout up like mushroom bubbles around it or those bubbles colonists use on Mars. The central hub grows bigger, richer, more complex with the bacteria driving cars and dying their tendrils [hair] green. You can see them from the moon or at least on the petrie dish as a big white central spot.
Then, Climate change, the oil [sugar] runs out and the colony starts to decay and crumble. The lights go out.
But we [they had a good time.
The epitaph and the answer SMB. There was and never will be an end game exit strategy of consequence for the Petrie dish.
Please feel OK to use a variation of this theme [TM angech and a lot of biologists]

Just do it

To learn Italian you have to speak it, rapidly, and know what the words mean or you will be left behind for dust.

The verb Fare or facere is one of the most important verbs and one of the best to start with. To do to act to make are some of the things you can say with it.

An interesting aside is that our English word far [as in far away] possibly comes from it. As in lontano fa a long way away. But I digress.

So lets do it. Let us do  it.  Facciomo lo.

We will start in a room in a house.

Cominceremo in una stanza in una casa. Another verb of many for starting is Inizieremo.

It is not important at the start to be totally correct in Italian. Fluency and choice will develop as you speak with or listen to people speaking the language. Here most English speaking people will be more comfortable with the verb Cominciare as it sounds like the word commence which is used more frequently that the word initiate for start in English.

Her we are using the ending for we or us, iamo, added to the verb, Cominciamo, iniziamo, partiamo etc. meaning we start. When we use the future tense we will start we instead add eremo to the base word.

In  can sometimes be the same as the English in. Or it can be nella or nello and variations on this according to the subject. Occasionally one uses fra or tra instead which are interchangeable. Tra in English is an additive part to a word meaning between or across as in transit Fra is used to give a range as in infra red. Both are used to indicate an in between property usually of time or space.

A is a term indicating singularity. Un is the base for masculine words often ending in o.
Una for feminine words usually ending in a.
Uno is of course used for the number one in Italian.

Stanza is the dictionary and accepted word for a room but there are many others.
The most commonly used being camera.We could also use commonly use sala.

Finally a house is a casa. Though there are other names for use in different circumstances.

Now for a bit of fun or as the Italians say  un po ‘di divertimento. Notice the un with the masculine word ending in o. It means Diverting as in entertaining by the way. Not diverting [taking away] attention but purely entertaining as in that was a diverting show, it took my mind off other things. Po means a little and di is one of the versions of the word of.

Try white house. Yes the president lives in one but so do a lot of other people.
Casa bianca. Bianca besides being a colour and a girl’s name is a version of blank. Which is like white paper that no one has written on. In Spanish it is blanco or blanca.
