    Great moments at being unintentionally funny on SJ.com.

    Dear board,

    I really wish people remember the format of this wonderful thread. There were some great stories told but only in the proper format.

    Dear board,

    Relating to some of the previous comments, my managing editor's mom's ashes are in her closet because her family can't agree what to do with them.

    Dear lawyerly and financial types here,

    What does dissolution by proclamation mean when it comes to a corporation?

    Spell it out for me.

    I know! I saw that, but too late to fix and change. (Yes, I wanted to, and would've if I could've :).

    Dear Songbird and anyone else interested,

    A dissolution by proclamation is when a state dissolves a corporation after the corporation fails to follow required annual filings. I am guessing states differ in what exactly triggers the ability of the state to take this action.

    Ashes can be interred. When Craig died, his sister and maybe the kids decided to split his ashes. The kids, Krissy and I each got a cardboard box with part of his ashes. I wanted to bury mine but learned in Florida I couldn’t legally do it. It would not have been in a casket. I had a choice of ground or in a wall, if I could have done it. I bet if I wanted to pay for a casket and space, they would have obliged, though. I scattered some in a place he loved and some are in a container on a shelf in my office, where I ended up with the shrine I desperately wanted to avoid creating. I believe the rest of him is still in two cardboard boxes in the closets of his sister’s and ex’s bedrooms.

    With regret I know what to do with cremation ashes,

    Dear Amy,

    Thanks. I spoke to the New York State Department of Taxes and this particular corporation didn't file taxes even once and suffered the DBP action 4 years later.

    Thanks for confirming what I knew,
