WHO’S BEEN SNOOPED?

plastic enclosures along with the outside heaters made it super comfy.

Meet You at the Boardwalk! Well, this has certainly been a different winter. One day the temps are in the high 70’s and the next we are witnessing magnificent rainbows after a torrential downpour. But the beautiful ag core soil loves that fresh shot of water. Great time to look in on a local restaurant that has been a favorite of mine for years, no matter what the weather looks like. On assignment, I generally try to look at businesses with a fresh set of eyes to take in the whole experience so I can pass it on to you. That being said, our dear friends at The Boardwalk Grill in Discovery Bay didn’t let me down. It is super clean like always, and decorated for the upcoming Easter holiday season, but the outside seating is even better than my last visit. Once you arrive, one or two of the employees will give you a welcomed “hello” and are quick to come over to ask how many in your party and do you want to sit inside or out. With the weather extremely cold on this day, it didn’t matter because the beautiful clear

As usual, there were lots of customers, some regulars and some that had not been in before. The really cool thing about this restaurant is you can see the Delta from every seat in the house. The small bar is a perfect place to stop for a cocktail and appetizers and the restaurant is big enough for a large crowd. Last year we had 16 of us after a full day of boating. And, just like always, the service was great and the food outstanding. The tables are clean and tastefully set with light blue linen napkins waiting for their next guest. Great presentation! Today our server was Kayla and she was just darling. Not only was she quick to take our order, but made sure during our visit that everything was just as we like it. Ten extra points. Fish tacos are my favorite, but this time I chose the Taco Salad (I so love their flair for Mexican food). WOW, DOUBLE WOW! Ice cold fresh lettuce and cilantro, freshly cooked taco flavored beef, multi-colored tortilla strips, fresh sliced avocado, house salsa, sour cream with great ranch dressing. And it was big enough for two, but I didn’t share. My husband had a cheese burger, that could also feed two with hot French fries. Is your mouth watering? We ordered our

favorite Margarita’s with Patron Silver, which was delivered with Kayla’s beautiful smile minutes after ordering. I think the part I like most about the Boardwalk Grill is that the owners Chris and Erica Cookson built this business to what it is today. They are charming, personable and work their butts off to make the Boardwalk experience like no other. With it strategically located right off the dock to their door, it is no wonder this place has grown to be a Delta favorite. And, with the boardwalk shopping nearby, it is a great opportunity to have a great meal, shop and then walk the levee to see all the boats in the harbor. So, Chris and Erica, as usual your entire crew showed that great Boardwalk hospitality, the food was wonderful, so you scored ten golden anchors from the Monthly Grapevine. It is an honor to write about you and an even bigger honor to recommend the Boardwalk to all of our readers. Who will be snooped next? It could be you!

Boardwalk Grill is located at the Discovery Bay Marina or see their full menu and order online at boardwalkgrill.net.

FOR YOUR DENTAL HEALTH

Snoring And Obstructive Sleep Apnea If you snore loudly and often, you may be accustomed to middle of the night elbow thrusts and lots of bad jokes but snoring is not a laughing matter. That loud noise that keeps everyone awake comes from efforts to force air through an airway that is not fully open. This is one of the first indication of a potentially life threatening disorder “Obstructive Sleep Apnea.” It has been estimated the indirect costs of sleep disorders is over forty one billion. This includes motor vehicle accidents, work related accidents and also home and public accidents which makes it clearly a national problem. Obstructive Sleep Apnea or some form of snoring occurs in 90 million Americans according to the National Sleep Foundation. OSA is associated with high risks for coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, stroke, diabetes, impotence, mortality and behavior problems.

As we age and gain weight the ability of the tongue base muscles and the upper airway muscles to expand becomes less and causes the airway to narrow. Snoring is a sign of narrowing airway. Increase in body mass also increases airway narrowing. The continuation of airway narrowing begins in patients first as snoring and eventually may end up in obstructive sleep apnea. Continuous positive airway pressure is indicated as the first line of treatment but in patients who cannot tolerate this have the option of getting appliances made by their dentist for their individual needs, and in severe case may need surgical intervention. Oral appliances are most commonly used for treatment for snoring and also in mild to moderate cases of sleep apnea. These appliances have been shown to increase the dimensions of the upper airway passage and also activate the neuromuscular activity of the upper airway muscles. Patients usually do need to get a sleep study called polysomnogram. Patients also have to follow up with the dentist for regular checkup.

and types regardless of a light, dark, or tanned complexion.

Laser Advantage All people, men and women alike, have times when they feel the need to increase their confidence by improving their appearance and overall sense of self. Whether you want to enhance or correct what you were born with or simply aspire to reduce the ravages of time, Laser Advantage of Antioch can help you attain your desired image. Staffed by Dr. James Edwards and Marti Edwards, RN, the facility offers clients over 17 years of experience in aesthetic healthcare. Laser Advantage provides hair and vein removal and skin rejuvenating services such as Laser Genesis, Cutera Titan skin tightening, and microdermabrasion facials that render a healthier and younger-looking persona. Trained professionals can remove unsightly brown spots, administer Botox, and provide Fraxel Laser treatments for resurfaced skin with a flawless finish. They can remove bothersome moles or skin tags. Should you have old tattoos that no longer inspire you, they can provide maximum tattoo removal that leaves the surrounding skin areas untouched. Demanding schedules have us searching for time-saving alternatives. If you are tired of shaving unwanted facial or body hair, visit Laser Advantage and have it removed with the use of their Cutera CoolGlide Xeo Laser. Considered the best hair removal system on the market, it is suitable for all skin tones

Moreover, the CoolGlide Xeo Laser is ideal for vein removal. It remedies a wide variety of vessels from small spider veins to deep blue reticular veins quickly and effectively. Blood blisters known as hemangiomas respond excellently to this type of therapy, and patients with port-wine stains and other vascular lesions have reported astounding results. The Laser Genesis Skin Therapy system is an innovative way to promote a vibrant and luminous visage. Skin damage resulting from active lifestyles combined with the aging process such as sun damage, redness, large pores, scars, and fine lines and wrinkles on the face and body can be combatted with this method that is scientifically proven to increase collagen production. Additionally, Cutera Titan is offered for an all-natural option. This skin and collagen tightening system improves the looseness of skin and is perfect for the face, arms, abdomen, and thighs without intrusive surgery, recovery time, or injections. Countless people have improved their looks by using Botox. A quick and minimally invasive way of smoothing out frown, forehead lines and “crow’s- feet” lines around the eyes, the results are visibly noticeable for four to six months. Laser Advantage also offers Photo Genesis to improve skin texture and reduce pigmentation spots and redness. Fraxel Laser treatment for skin resurfacing is a revolutionary new process that delivers a pristine and glowing complexion that

subtracts years from your countenance. It works by treating thousands of microscopic areas of the skin and penetrates beneath the surface to eliminate old and damaged skin cells. As the microscopic areas close, the skin is tightened. Fraxel Laser effectually addresses annoyances such as wrinkles, age and sun spots, brown spots, pregnancy mask, acne and surgical scars, and stretch marks and stimulates the body’s own natural healing process to replace old skin with new. How we perceive ourselves and the way others perceive us is an important and vital aspect of healthy and positive living. At Laser Advantage, the goal is to make you happy with what you see when you gaze upon your reflection in the mirror. Rest assured, you will receive the best of care from professionals who strongly emphasize safety and fully understand the self-reflective needs of their patients.

Laser Advantage is located at 3725 Lone Tree Way, Ste. C in Antioch and can be reached at 925-754-4881 or LaserAdvantageofEC.com.

ON THE HOUSE

ground floor and nest on little shelves inside your chimney. And while roof rats, a different species of rat found mostly along the coasts, are more likely to nest in your attic, they can also find their way into your chimney.

How To Keep Pests Out Of Your Chimney As temperatures drop, many people will start spending more time in the warmth of their homes. Animals don’t have the luxury of extra heating and take whatever refuge they can find, making chimneys a convenient place for pests to seek shelter. The team at Terminix has some helpful information to share so that homeowners can be better prepared to address critters that find their way into chimneys. What kinds of pests can end up in your chimney? If you hear rustling or scratching coming from your chimney, some type of rodent may be the culprit. Your visitors could be squirrels, which are excellent climbers and can be found in all sorts of places within your home, from attics to crawl spaces to wall voids. Or your chimney might become the den of choice for a female raccoon birthing her young. Rats are yet another option. Norway rats can enter this area of your home from the

Rodents aren’t the only animals that can end up in this space, either. Flapping sounds or chirps indicate that a bird may be nesting in your chimney. It may not look much like a tree to you, but to certain species of birds, your house’s chimney could look very similar to the hollow trees in which they like to build their nests. How do you keep pests out of your chimney? Ideally, you’ll want to set up some preventative measures to reduce the chances of a mother raccoon or other pest in your chimney. Installing a chimney cap can help keep birds, raccoons, and other large pests out. When it comes to pests like rats and mice, you should focus on sealing smaller entry points, as a rat can squeeze through a hole the size of a quarter! It can be difficult to spot these access points from the ground, so you should have a professional inspect your roof and chimney for possible holes. What do you do when a pest is already inside?

Pest control measures vary depending on what kind of animal has entered your chimney, but the general rule is that you shouldn’t light a fire or try to smoke the animal out. Pests like raccoons can attack when they feel threatened, and rodents can spread ectoparasitic insect pests like ticks and fleas, so you don’t want to come into direct contact with whatever animal has decided to seek shelter in your home.

For an Ounce of Prevention then Think Maintenance The rain may have started and it may be wet still but the weather will be worse soon so there is still time to do some deferred maintenance to make sure your home is in tip-top shape so add these chores to your list to help preserve your home’s value and help avoid major repairs later on. Check for any past damage. Look for loose and leaking gutters. Now is the right time to clean out the gutters. Is your roof missing any shingles, or any tiles slipped out of place? A common nuisance is foliage, such as grass and weeds or an overhanging tree growing on the roof. Check the valleys where the slope of the roof meets, for debris which has formed or birds have made a home and will cause leaks. Walk around your yard as if you were a first-time visitor. Be sure to clear away fallen

HOME & LIFESTYLE

One Week Of Healthy Meals, With Minimal Effort We all know that the week can get hectic, with work and whatever life can throw at you. In between the chaos is it important to provide a healthy yet hearty meal for your family. American household spend $70,000 on takeout annually. With such a high number, saving money is also a dire reason that cooking at home is healthy as well as frugal. The key to a week of healthy meals is choosing two days to cook and prep your food for break, lunch, or dinner. Whether it is all three meals or one, the choice is up to you. Let’s begin with the first meal of the day. Breakfast. The meal that gets you energized and ready for the day ahead. Though this meal is the most important of the day, it is often the one that is most skipped. Grab and go options typically tend to be the best for those busy

branches and leaves. Prune shrubs and trees to keep them manageable. Is it time to condition your deck? Be sure to hammer in any loose nails, or replace them with galvanized deck screws. Replace any broken boards or rails. Consider power washing to clean the wood, and then apply an all-weather sealer or stain. Cover and protect that patio furniture from the weather. Check your fences and repair any broken fence boards to protect from future storms. If you have good neighbor fences you may add a small board at the base to make sure the board don’t fall out during the next windstorm. It is a good idea to stain your fences once a year to extend the life of your fence. If you are just moving in what a great time to get started. Clean the pool if it has been covered all winter. Wash windows, screens and windowsills; repair any past damage.

Be sure to sweep ashes carefully into your fireplace’s ash pit or into a dustpan. If you used it frequently then you may want to call a professional chimney sweep to have it cleaned and lower risk of fire. Clean and lightly oil fireplace tools. And lastly, possibly the most important of all, don’t forget to replace batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors even if they are not dead put some fresh ones in (and remember to recycle the old ones). You may have missed it this year but in the future plan to change them when you change your clock for daylight savings. Although performing these chores may be dreaded task, they go a long way in maintaining and even enhancing the attractiveness and quality your home.

Don’t forget the inside, you can really extend the life of kitchen cabinets with a little maintenance such as Old English. Check the central air-conditioning unit for debris and obstructions, it is important to have good air flow for maximum efficiency and to prolong the life of the unit. Make sure all exhaust fans and vents are clean and clear. Don’t forget to remove the lint buildup from the clothes dryer vent.

mornings. Eggs are quick and delicious, and they can be prepped a day prior. Eggs can be baked in the oven at 350 degrees in a cookie sheet. Simply crack the eggs, add a bit of salt and pepper then bake for fifteen minutes. Voila! Breakfast for the week. Simple, fast and efficient. Lunch and dinner can be a more complicated meal, since they tend to require more ingredients and prep time. Chopped salads and soups are always excellent options with minimal prep time. For lunch, grab and go; just like breakfast is a great option. A chopped salad with fresh in season fruits and or vegetables can be stored in Tupperware and ready to go in seconds. Dinner can be prepped and stored in the freezer. Crock-pot meals are always the way to go for a fast meal. One easy meal is Teriyaki Chicken. All you need is five chicken breasts, teriyaki sauce, water, brown sugar and three cloves of garlic. All of these can be added to a Ziploc bag, kept frozen then added to a crock pot for four hours. Prepped and ready to eat! Make sure to mush the ingredients in the bag together so the flavors fuse together. Thaw out the freezer

meals in the fridge overnight so they are easier to cook. We cannot forget about snacks! Throughout the day, we all look forward to that midday snack. Homemade oatmeal energy balls and grab and go granola bars are the perfect quick fix until the time dinner arrives.
