I've changed my mind, thank you!

Another Sunday, another Sunday Postcard Challenge. Continuing with themes relating to October, this week the theme was "potions."

Here's my postcard for potion challenge. In every dream, the reality may not be what is expected. Is the little fellow asking to change his mind after seeing what his buddy has become?

Top Five Executor Mistakes

Executors are often secretive to the point of being furtive. Nothing is going to fuel speculation and suspicion on the part of beneficiaries more than being kept in the dark. An executor must respond to reasonable enquiries from the residuary beneficiaries of an estate. They are entitled to it, and responsible for policing the actions of the executor. They are entitled to see the Will and all of the documentation filed with the court. Believe me, if beneficiaries can't get the informaiton they're entitled to, they will suspect the worst. Perhaps executors don't realize that as soon as the frustrated beneficiary hangs up the phone, his or her next call is to a lawyer.

Here are the Top Five Mistakes Made by Executors

Time and time again I hear stories of family members who are presented with complicated, mysterious documents by an executor and being told to sign them, without being given any information about what's going on. Any executor who treats important legal issues this way should expect pushback from the beneficiaries. This is a textbook example of how to start an estate dispute.

The failure to communicate even reaches to co-executors. Sometimes a person will act for weeks or months as an executor and not reveal that there is a co-executor appointed until he or she is forced to do so because a financial institution refuses to go further without both signatures.

How phun is punography!

What a way to start my Monday! How clever are these?

My favourite is "I'm reading a book about anti-gravity. I can't put it down."

Double Divas!

The challenge at Collage Obsession this week was to take the black and white photo of Emmy Destinn and use it to show what a Diva is all about.

There are many extraordinary collages already posted and the challenge just began on Friday!

If one Diva is not enough, how about twin Divas? I almost turned Emmy into the iconic "Doublemint Twin" commercial but thankfully resisted.
