Who’s Who... in East County

There are multiple benefits to developing a close relationship with your hairstylist. After time, a stylist becomes fully acquainted with the personal charm of each client, understanding what works best for them and how their head of hair reacts to particular cuts and products. For 16 years, Blondies Hair Studio of Brentwood has offered expert haircuts, coloring, perms, hair extensions, and more to valued patrons, helping them to feel renewed and beautiful. Owner Diana Kristich always had a passion for hairstyling and dreamed of starting her own salon. She eagerly pursued this career path and trained with Paris Beauty School, Paul Mitchell, Tony and Guy, and Rusk. She has a wealth of industry knowledge and experience. Diana has many long-term customers because she takes the time to truly know them and listens closely to their needs. The most rewarding aspect of her job is the ability to make people feel attractive. She feels privileged to work with each client individually to better assist them in discovering their perfect look. The appreciative faces of clients exiting the salon are what make her work extremely gratifying. For most salon patrons, their hair stylist and the salon environment go beyond departing with a fabulous look. There is much to be said for the kinship that happens in a hair studio. Having a place where you can unwind, be pampered, and simply enjoy meaningful conversation can only add to your beautiful countenance and well-being by providing food for the soul. The services at Blondies Hair Studio can help you improve the condition of your hair and attain a fashionable look that expresses the true you.

TRAVEL TIME

Some go to Glacier Bay and others go to Hubbard Glacier.

Welcome to a new year. It is indeed a time for a fresh start and a clean slate to begin anew and move onward and upward. We do hope you all had the holidays that you wished for and it is our further hope for only the best in our new year of 2017. We begin by telling you that for the cruise industry this is a special time of year. It is called WAVE season. The month of February is particularly interesting in that the most popular summer destinations are usually having a number of great promotions. And for us on the west coast that is especially true for Alaska. We have one ship that is dedicated to the San Francisco market and it is called the GRAND PRINCESS®. The GRAND will be doing a series of 10 day cruises roundtrip from San Francisco beginning this May and there are a couple of itineraries she will do.

sending less equipment to Europe with concern for safety and less bookings being made.

This ship often is SOLD OUT way ahead of time and since we only have one ship then we would highly recommend that if you are interested in Alaska from San Francisco please contact us NOW so you can get the sailing that you want and also the type of room that you want.

As a result, Celebrity, has returned to the Caribbean this summer. We can see very special promotions for these sailings and hope the cruise lines will do well. It also has become quite THE THING to sail out of New York and add on some time in The Big Apple either before or after your Caribbean cruise. We’ll help you do that as well.

There are a limited number of rooms that will accommodate more than 2 people and if you have larger than that in your family there are only a couple of family rooms on board that will accommodate a family of more than 4.

So, we’ve got you covered for the warm and the cool with summer cruising this year for sure.

Alaska is often called the LAND OF THE MIDNIGHT SUN and if you remember your school days the days are quite long during the summer with little night time hours. As we get later into the season in August the days are shorter and often times the weather turns colder especially in September.

It is time to GETAWAY FROM YOUR EVERDAY and be the first to take advantage of special pricing on Alaska and the Caribbean for this summer. And yes with these specials there are also some added amenities you will be able to select from or have added on by the individual cruise line.

For the best time, if you are looking for sun it’s important to book early in the summer for your sailing.

Getaway Cruises n’ Tours can be contacted at 925-679-8428 or getawaycnt1@prodigy.net. Visit their website for the latest in cruise and tour specials at www.getawaycruisesntours.com.

Also, this year some of the cruise lines are returning to the Caribbean for the summer. This is mainly because they are

HEALTH

FOR YOUR DENTAL HEALTH

Administration has issued a warning about the use of numbing gels, as they contain benzocaine. The FDA recommends that parents of children younger than 2 years not use medications that contain benzocaine, as there are reports of a rare but serious and sometimes fatal condition called methemoglobinemia; a disorder in which the amount of oxygen carried through the bloodstream is greatly reduced. The FDA also warns parents not to use medication which has lidocaine to treat teething pain because an overdose can cause seizures, severe brain injury and problems in the heart.

What Happens When Your Baby Is Teething? Babies usually begin teething between 4 to 7 months of age. This process can last up to three years allowing time for a set of twenty teeth to push through the gums. Some of the signs that your baby is getting new teeth are, trouble falling asleep and can become fussy. He or she may not want to eat and might start to drool more than usual. Here are som ways to make your baby more comfortable. Behaviors like fussiness, sleeplessness and refusing to eat can result from sore and tender gums. Try soothing the gums by rubbing them gently with a clean finger, a moist gauze or a small cool spoon. Letting your child chew on a clean teething ring also may relieve some of the discomfort the baby is feeling. There are plenty of numbing gels available over the counter without a prescription. The Food and Drug

As soon as the baby gets the first tooth schedule a well-baby visit to the dentist and this allows the dentist to check for signs of tooth decay and talk about habits and conditions that can affect your child’s teeth. The dentist can also show you the proper way to take care of your baby’s teeth and care for the brand new smile.

WHO’S BEEN SNOOPED?

have that conversation to at the very least, begin the process of bringing your dream to life.

Home Sweet “Dream” Home

On assignment, I made a quick phone call to gather some information and then visited their website for the full details. Being able to talk to them directly with just general questions was certainly more than I expected. They were VERY courteous and extremely considerate of my call. I leaned that Mike has more than 30 years experience in design and construction and is knowledgeable in all areas of kitchen and bath remodeling, including electrical, plumbing, carpentry and cabinetry. I knew right away, the word “experienced” was best description I could say about Mike and his company. He has an immaculate reputation in the construction industry and a diversified background that allows creativity and dedication in getting the job done.

Here it is the first week in January and it is brisk 32 degrees outside. With all of the Christmas decor getting put away and the last noise makers from New Year’s in the trash, the community seems to be off and running into the new year. The wonderful rain brought the much needed water to the farmlands and the tractors are starting to appear in the fields. What a perfect time to look in on a local business who can help you with those New Year’s resolutions. If you are like many, your “To-do” list may include a little remodel to spruce up the home front. Pretty sure you have heard the term “dream kitchen” and have procrastinated the idea for years, but never thought it could be done. Or, you tell yourself every time you clean, “Someday, I am going to get one of those Jacuzzi bathtubs and beautiful granite countertops” and let it remain just a dream. Well, you need to call Mike & Pam Bickford at Apollo Bath and Design and

They provide a full network of architects, structural engineers, interior designers, electricians, plumbers, carpenters, drywall installers, cabinet installers, tile setters, stone fabricators, painters that complete your project in a professional and efficient manner. Now this counts ten extra points, since not only does Apollo have every pro on their team, they have the guy running the job with 30+ years of experience. How

great is that? In addition, Mike is a Director - DMK Elite Networking, Ambassador of Livermore Chamber of Commerce, Member of GNON and Danville Rotary Club and is involved in his community. This is the kind of business man that I would personally want to have “build my dream.” And, the best part, you can call for a free estimate. This is when you give Mike ALL of you ideas and then he brings it to life for a price you can afford. The end result is on a CAD drawing which allows for both elevations and perspective drawings. BAM!! A dream you can actually visualize and with the help of Mike and his team, make a reality. So Mike & Pam, this secret shopper gives you and Apollo Bath & Design ten golden handles for offering professionalism wrapped in knowledge to make anyone’s “dream” come to life. And, especially for giving me the time to talk you about your company and what you could do for me. That meant a great deal and I know you will pass that same experience on to our readers. Who will be snooped next? It could be you! Apollo Bath and Design can be reached at 925-679-7914 or apollobathanddesign.net.

ON THE HOUSE

5 Secrets To Building The Best Media Room There was a time when only a few could afford a large screen television. The resolution was clunky, the sound poor and the cost high. But over the past decade, technology has advanced so remarkably fast that today a 60-inch television with unbelievably crisp resolution is within many people’s budget. Add to this the fact that tickets for movie theaters are more expensive than ever, and it makes sense why more people are building a home theater in their house. With some planning and amazing electronic toys, it’s possible to create a media room that delivers theater-quality sound and visuals. And you can enjoy it in more comfortable seats and without obnoxious strangers interrupting the show. But 4K televisions, surround-sound speakers and bass cannons are only part of the overall experience. To compliment these electronics features, you need the right setting to amplify the experience. This means taking the time to

design a proper media room that enables your equipment. These five indispensable tips will help you do just that. 1. A great media room begins with the right walls. Incredibly strong, Habito(TM) drywall is able to hold up to 30 pounds on a single screw. This drywall does away with wall mounts and the need to find a stud, allowing you to mount your speakers, television or screen exactly where you want them to go. 2. Paint wisely. While what color you choose for your room will be based off personal preference, aim for earthy, neutral colors that minimize glare. To help draw the focus of the room toward the screen, many paint the wall a burgundy or maroon. 3. Great sound is a result of more than speakers. Designing your room with acoustics in mind is key. Hard surfaces create a sharp, echoing quality to the sound. To avoid this, your media room should be carpeted and instead of hard blinds, use sound dampening curtains to help enhance the sound and keep out the sun. The density of Habito drywall also contributes to reduced sound transmission between rooms, helping to create separation between your media room and the living area of the home. 4. Think about speakers, walls and storage. Though most people’s attention

will be drawn to the wall with the television on it, the surrounding walls are equally important. Here is where you mount speakers for the 360-degree sound effect, sconce lighting and floating shelves for design and storage. To properly achieve this, you need a durable wall, such as Habito drywall, that can both hold the needed weight and is strong enough to make it easy to redesign and remount fixtures as needed. 5. Create lighting to accommodate a variety of moods. A media room is meant to be used in a number of ways. Even when you’re watching a movie, you’ll probably turn the lights up then down before it’s over. For this reason, be sure to install dimmable lights that can easily be controlled. This way, you can keep it dark for the dramatic scenes, and when the pizza arrives, have just enough light to see your food but not detract from the picture quality. It’s easy to only focus on the big “toys” when building a media room. But the secret to a truly great home-theater experience begins in the construction phase, well before anything is plugged in.

Non Probate Transfers Considerations for Estate Planning It is estimated that more than 50% of all adults in the United States do not have a Will. At first glance that statistic can be very disturbing especially when you understand that most of those people have children. So how is it possible that so many people pass away without a Will yet everything seems to be distributed without the need of a Will or Probate? First, they have designated beneficiaries on their accounts. The distribution of assets such as life insurance, annuities, retirement accounts and bank accounts are governed by contract law. Therefore, the accounts can have one or more designated beneficiaries to whom the asset will be paid upon the death of the owner. In addition, most of these accounts allow alternate beneficiaries in the event the primary beneficiary has died. However, if you are married, the Retirement Equity Act may supersede a

beneficiary designation if the spouse has not consented to the designation. Second, form of ownership of the asset does not require a probate. If you are married and own real property in California as community property with the right of survivorship, the property will transfer to the surviving spouse with the benefit of a full step up in basis without any requirement for a probate. A probate is also not necessary if title to real property is held as joint tenants, tenants in common or the interest is held by an entity such as a corporation. However, great CAUTION should be used in holding real property as Joint Tenants. While joint tenancy with the right of survivorship can be very attractive for parents trying to avoid the necessity of a Will or Trust, the effect of transferring property into Joint Tenancy with children will cause a reassessment of the property for tax purposes and will also eliminate the opportunity for the children to receive the step up in basis to full fair market value of the property on the death of the parent. Joint Tenancy can also open the property up to claims of creditors of the other owner(s). In California, absent an agreement by the parties, when one of the joint tenants dies, the surviving owner will only get a step up in basis for ½ the value of the property. Third, there is joint ownership on accounts. Pursuant to California’s Multiple Party

Account Law, bank and brokerage accounts can have multiple owners. After the death of one of the owners, the remaining owners will continue the ownership. If the account has more than one surviving owner, the surviving owners will maintain their ownership proportions plus an equal share of the decedent portion. However, great CAUTION should be used in putting other people on bank and brokerage accounts because when title to a multiple party account can ONLY be changed by closing the account or the agreement of all parties. If you do not have a Will or Trust, it is possible to handle your Estate Planning without one. However, it is usually NOT advisable. The ownership of your assets by or with other people may mean the assets will not available for your use when you need them most. If you would like to discuss your options, I see people for a free 30 minute consultation in my Walnut Creek and Brentwood offices.
