BRENTWOOD'S PRESCRIPTION DRUG DROP BOX Prescription drugs save lives. If they are misused, however, they can also destroy them. Therefore, proper disposal of unused prescription medicine is not just the right thing to do, it’s a civic duty. Fortunately, here in Brentwood, that duty is now made much easier with the City Hall Drug Drop Box, located at 5211 Maryland Way. It’s a safe and convenient way to get rid of prescription medicines. Set up in January 2018, the drop box collected 954 pounds of prescription drugs last year alone, an average of nearly 80 pounds of drugs a month that can no longer find their way into the wrong hands or, via landfills, into our water supply. The drop box is available 24 hours a day, 365 days per year, and is in an area under video camera surveillance CONTINUED >

PLAN YOUR ROMANTIC GETAWAY TO THE HISTORIC ISLAND IN THE AEGEAN SEA

Brentwood Lifestyle | February 2019


Did You Know?

Photo by Artiom Vallat on Unsplash

A caldera is a large volcanic crater typically formed by a major eruption leading to the collapse of the mouth of a volcano. Forming the southernmost member of the Cyclades island group, Santorini is the remains of the Minoan eruption that, 3,600 years ago, destroyed a formerly single island and created the current caldera.

stay SUN ROCKS BOUTIQUE HOTEL Sun Rocks Boutique Hotel is considered one of Santorini’s most romantic hotels. The elegant couples-only cliffside hideaway—named a Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice 2018 award winner— features luxe, minimalist rooms and suites carved into the side of a volcanic cliff featuring amazing caldera and sea views. SunRocks.gr

dine CASA DI TE

Just a short stroll from the Sun Rocks Boutique hotel is this restaurant dedicated to creating the perfect combination of flavors and atmosphere to create unique moments in Santorini. Ranked on Trip

Traveling Foodie There are so many flavors to explore in Santorini! Some must-try Greek foods include tomato kefthedes (tomato fritters), saganaki (fried cheese in phyllo topped with honey, Santorini salad, baklava (phyllo filled with honey and chopped nuts), spanakopita (Greek spinach pie) and Greek fava.

Advisor’s top 10 romantic restaurants in Santorini, Casa di Te is inspired by Greek modern cuisine, Mediterranean cuisine and a touch of local flavor.

experience SUNSET VIEWS

About 25 minutes up the coast is where you can catch sights of what people often refer to as arguably the best sunsets you’ll ever see. Catch some of the best panoramic views of Santorini from 15th-century Byzantine castle ruins. Situated on the side of caldera cliffs, Oia village offers tons of breathtaking viewing spots. Be sure to get there well before sunset—because of the area’s sundown popularity, you’ll find crowds of people gathered on streets, rooftops and stairs anticipating the one-of-akind experience.

WELCOME TO THE HISTORIC

Childress-Ray House THE BORO'S MOST ROMANTIC B&B

ARTICLE WILLIAM HARWOOD | PHOTOGRAPHY DON WRIGHT JR

FEBRUARY, OF COURSE, BRINGS THOUGHTS OF VALENTINE’S DAY, THE MOST ROMANTIC OF HOLIDAYS. Or at least it should be. The reality, as we all know—the kids, the bills, the dog vs. cat, the kitchen that never seems clean—sometimes intrudes upon a couple’s best-laid plans for wine-and-dine romance.   So what better way to ensure that a romantic evening unfolds according to plan than by entrusting reality to grandma or a sitter for a night or two and then making a couple’s getaway?  You need not go far; the Childress-Ray House in historic downtown Murfreesboro is one such romantic  Valentine’s destination. A newly renovated and beautifully furnished home on  the National Register of Historic Places, the Childress-Ray House is located just off the main square with its shops, restaurants and pubs. Built in 1847, the house’s thick plaster walls provide plenty of privacy while its wrought-iron fence ensures security. The enclosed grounds include a beautiful garden, a charming veranda, an extant root cellar and an original stable. The home contains the main house and three adjoining apartments that were added in the 1940s. 20

Brentwood Lifestyle | February 2019


The home also contains most of its original hardwood floors, moldings, fireplaces and light fixtures. Sandi Baylis purchased and updated the property in 2014 and made it into the charming B&B it is today. All three apartments are available during the month of February and are cozy and quaint. In the upstairs Magnolia Suite, snuggle up with your significant other on the comfy sofa or the antique canopy bed. You may also choose from the cozy Gardener Suite or the downstairs Coy Dunson Suite, the biggest of the three apartments. During your stay, stroll the grounds and check out the original 1800s kitchen and fireplace, potters shed and the two front porches. Or gather 'round the fire pit on the lightstrung back patio with a hot toddy. The parlor in the main house is accessible to all guests and is an ideal space to have a chat or just settle in beside the wood-burning fire with a good book. Sandi, the host, wants to help you make your stay a memorable one, so feel free to contact her with any inquiries and requests. She’ll happily sit and chat for hours with you  or just as cheerfully respect your request for privacy. You can reach her here at sandilbaylis@gmail.com.

GIVING BACK

Nashville Wine Auction:

Uncorking Cancer’s Cure One Bottle at a Time 34

Brentwood Lifestyle | February 2019


COME FOR THE PARTY; STAY FOR THE CAUSE

ARTICLE WILLIAM HARWOOD

GREAT PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER, YET THE DISEASE REMAINS A FORMIDABLE FOE. Fortunately, many wonderful institutions in town are seeking cures and aiding patients. But it’s expensive. That’s where Nashville Wine Auction comes in. As the country’s longest-running charity wine auction, the organization has raised tens of millions of dollars over the years for local cancer-fighting nonprofits such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center. "In 2018, we provided funds to purchase a 3D mammography machine for St. Thomas West. It will serve thousands and thousands of women in our community," says Holly Whaley, Nashville Wine Auction’s president and CEO. But that was only part of the $1.8 million Nashville Wine Auction raised last year. Another beneficiary last year included the Make-A-Wish Foundation, philanthropy made possible through the appreciation of great times with extraordinary wines. But let’s face it, not everyone is a sommelier, and high-end wines can be intimidating, what with all their complexities and layered notes and pedigree of grapes. Hence the rationale behind Pairings: Nashville’s Ultimate Wine and Food Weekend. You need not be an expert to enjoy yourself; you need merely be an enthusiast, one who is eager to explore the experiences afforded by some of the world’s most remarkable wines. “If you are at all interested in wine, then our events are going to thrill you,” Holly says. As well as, of course, raise significant funds. Since the vintners donate the wine and the chefs their expertise, about 60 to 70 percent of each ticket sold goes to battle against cancer. The first of the three evenings of events kicks off on Thursday, Feb. 21  with Private Vintner Dinners. These are intimate affairs with gourmet meals prepared by local chefs in private homes and select restaurants, allowing participants to converse with the winemakers themselves at the table. Friday evening is Wined Up! Here, 26 vintners from the West Coast provide samples of their wines at the City Winery while participants enjoy delectable cuisine from guest chefs and bid in a silent auction. Saturday evening is the Pairings Dinner. Again at the City Winery, participants savor a five-course meal prepared by featured chefs and paired with fantastic wines from esteemed vintners, all while raising their paddles to bid on donated wine during a spirited live auction.   To learn more about Nashville Wine Auction and to order your tickets for Pairings, visit NashvilleWineAuction.com.

“If you are looking for a real estate agent that has all the qualities—knowledge and caring—to make your buy or sale seamless with a great ending,

L O O K N O F U R T H E R .”

2009 was not a good real estate market and we wanted to purchase a home with a basement. Mid 2009 I had an idea that if real estate was down, then builders were not selling homes. My idea was to find a builder to trade my home for their home and I would pay the agreed difference. I did not know Gabrielle at that time and spoke to another realtor that had over 30 years of experience about my idea. Her exact words were “I cannot do that and you will never find a realtor who would actually be able to do that—and if you did, they would be the greatest real estate agent ever.” Reading between the lines, she basically told me I was crazy. December of the same year I met Gabrielle at a Christmas get-together she was hosting at our playground. We spoke for ten minutes, but I never told her of my idea. I could tell from the brief conversation that she was not the normal realtor just in it for the commission. I called her the same day a few hours later and told her of my idea. She listened, asked me a few questions and said, “Let me work on it and I will let you know.” Within one week she called me and said, “I have found builders willing to trade.” When I started working the numbers, Gabrielle stated, “Look over the numbers and if anything makes you feel uncomfortable, I will address it with the builder. If you are still uncomfortable with the answer, do not go through with the sale.” At that point, it proved what I already knew—that she truly cares about her making her clients happy. March 10, 2010 we had a new home that we traded for and the agreed difference to pay. Gabrielle was there for us from start to finish; and even after we closed, to this day I have and still contact her with questions. She is still there for me and responds promptly even though we’re currently not in the market to buy and sell. To pull off what Gabrielle did makes me and the realtor I spoke to know without a doubt that Gabrielle is the greatest real estate agent ever. If you are looking for a real estate agent that has all the qualities—knowledge and caring—to make your buy or sale seamless with a great ending, look no further.

THE ROBINSON INVESTMENT GROUP HELPS US PLAN AHEAD

INVESTING IS A LONG-TERM PROPOSITION. “The recent market decline has created a window to make the commitment into long-term investments in common stocks. Investors need a preferred “buy list” of companies that have always piqued their interest yet may have been overpriced.”   CONSIDER COMPANIES THAT HAVE INSIDER BUYING OF CORPORATE SHARES.   “We like companies that have a regular commitment to company share buybacks.

Investment Group, to give us some advice. Here’s what he had to say.

“We prefer companies that have good cash flow that can pay the dividend without jeopardizing the cash management of the company.” CONSIDER MUTUAL FUNDS TO BENEFIT FROM PROFESSIONAL MANAGEMENT AND HISTORICAL EXPERTISE. “We believe that investors will get diversified portfolios that reduce the risk of individual securities. Mutual funds offer a variety of funds from growth to value styles. We recommend dollar cost averaging for mutual funds with the recent market decline opening a very advantageous time to invest.” MARKET VOLATILITY “We know that clients are uneasy about the market volatility and definitely remember March 2009 when the market bottomed out. A few clients panicked and sold their portfolios. The best advice is to remain committed to the program.  Once the decline is over, the patient investor makes above-average investment returns.” Investors have many resources available to them.
