Give the Cold Shoulder Meaning: A rude way of telling someone he isn’t welcome History: Although giving someone the cold shoulder today is considered rude, it was actually regarded as a polite gesture in medieval England. After a feast, the host would let his guests know it was time to leave by giving them a cold piece of meat from the shoulder of beef, mutton, or pork.

The Role of an Executor After your death, your money, personal items, property, and debt make up your estate. An Executor is the person who will be in charge of your estate and follow the instructions you leave in your Will. Your Executor should be organized, detail oriented, comfortable dealing with numbers, and good at following directions. Your Executor’s work starts with notifying the government of your death and arranging your funeral. Your Executor must then take care of your estate, including finding and caring for your assets, paying your debts and bills, and completing your tax returns. Your Executor is responsible for following the wishes you expressed in your Will and distributing your estate according to those instructions. With such important responsibilities, be sure you pick the right person for the job. If you already have a Will, you should review it regularly to make sure your Executor is a good fit. Your Executor will need a lot of information about you and the items in your estate. You can help your Executor by keeping information about your money, investments, insurance, property, and debt in one place. You can also help your Executor by creating a well thought out estate plan and clear instructions in a properly drafted Will.

905-451-6610. Scam Alert from Peel Regional Police

People in a vehicle who stop looking for directions and lure you near their car or van. Then they show you jewelry they have for sale and let you try it on. As they remove that jewelry they also remove your personal items. You never feel it. Then they quickly leave. Constable Logan has shared this concern with us so we can share it with you. Remember to be on your guard. They will drive up to the front of your house, where you feel the most safe and just call out‌.seems so simple and non-threatening. They are counting on you being kind and helpful to someone lost. Sometimes they have had a child in the car to put you off. If you are aware of anything like this call Peel Regional Police at
