WHO’S BEEN SNOOPED?

That being said he has competitive pricing with customer service and satisfaction his number one priority. I know this to be true because members of our Grapevine family have used Ross and love to refer him to others. Ceiling fans, new circuits, additional outlets, under cabinet lighting, garage lighting, new phone/cable lines, hot tubs, exterior lighting, landscape lighting, recessed lighting, remodels and new construction are just a few projects offered by CJ Bradley Electric.

Your Power Connection! Here it is the middle of February and it is a crisp 44 degrees outside. With the rain staying away for the time being, it seemed the perfect time to get out and look in on a local business that can help you with some much needed household tasks before Spring Fever hits. If you are like my family, things that needed fixing in November got put on the “To Do” list. You know, the ceiling fan that stopped working or the hot tub that doesn’t get hot anymore. Both are certainly important to these cold winter days and Ross Perlee from CJ Bradley’s Electric is just the guy to call. This oneman company has been in the Brentwood area since 2003. Ross has been in the electrical trade since 1986 and is “Your Power Connection.”

I think the part I liked most about this company is it is family owned and operated. There is nobody to blame if the job isn’t done right and as Ross says, “a company is only as good as its reputation!” He is licensed, bonded and insured and is willing to take your call to discuss any question or concern you have about your specific project. No middleman, just Ross, with almost 30 years of experience. How great is that! You can talk to the guy directly about what you need to have done and he is going to give you the best price and quality service. And his company is local which is great for everyone.

Now here is the good part, you can get a free estimate. And that includes a small job like a new circuit or new construction.

I know our readers enjoy our monthly snoop and may have taken advantage of my advice over the years to either shop

So CJ Bradley Electric, the Monthly Grapevine gives you five lightning bolts for bringing this wonderful business to Brentwood and offering excellent service to the our community and surrounding areas. I know that the next time I need to have anything electrical done, I personally am going to give you a call. Who will be snooped next? It could be you!

a store or take advantage of the many services offered by local businesses, but the thought of touching electrical stuff has most of us a little scared. I can still remember that little zap I got as a kid when I did something I wasn’t supposed to do next to the duplex plug. I can’t even imagine tackling a job like putting in a ceiling fan. First off, many of us shouldn’t be on a ladder and secondly, what if it is wired wrong and you burn down the house. All the more reason to make the call to Ross and at least give him the opportunity to bid your job and get it done right the first time.

HOME & LIFESTYLE

at a local school can also have huge benefits to your community. Educators are often busy with large class numbers and assignments and even the smallest help such as helping grade papers or office work can make all the difference.

Contributing To Our Community March. The month when it is time to start fresh. The perfect start is contributing to your community. Giving back to your community is an excellent way to help others around you, considering we are in the fresh starts and spring cleaning; what better than caring for your community. Volunteering is a superb way to give back and make yourself feel fulfilled as well. Some ways that you can volunteer in and around your community is to help a family in need. Lets’ face it, life can be hectic and the everyday hustle and bustle can sometimes take a toll. Next time you are in line at the grocery store, offer to help load groceries into a family’s car or even pay for a portion. The slightest sign of care can mean the world to someone who you didn’t even know needed it. Offering to volunteer

Your neighborhood can also be a great place to start. Start a community yard sale so the whole community can benefit from sales. Yard sales are a great way for people of all ages to come together and spend a Saturday or Sunday enjoying the outdoors; especially since February had some rather warm weather. Take advantage of the opportunity and go outside. Volunteering and giving back has exponential benefits on your health. You will enjoy a sense of purpose and fulfillment and remain physically and mentally active. So, not only will you be helping others and the community, you will also be helping yourself; so everyone wins. Take the month of March to consider taking time out of your week or month to give back, even in the slightest of ways. Anything and anyone can make a difference.

How to Hold Title to Your Property Do you know how you hold title to your property? There are many different ways to hold title and most people don’t spend much time thinking about it. It is important to know how you hold title to your property because it can have huge consequences. Holding Property If You Are Married, But Don’t Have A Trust If you are married and don’t have a Trust, many people assume that the best way to hold title is as joint tenants. Prior to 2001, this was correct because joint tenancy allowed property to pass automatically without a probate. However, holding title as joint tenants can have negative tax consequences. Under Joint Tenancy, when the first spouse dies, the property will be transferred to the survivor, but the survivor may only take a ½ step up in basis. For example, let’s say the property was purchased for $100,000 and is held by the owners as joint tenants. When the

first person dies, let’s also assume the property is now worth $500,000. Instead of receiving a full step-up in basis to the $500,000, the survivor will only receive ½ step-up in basis. In 2001, the California legislature added a new way for couples to hold title which is “community property with the right of survivorship.” Similar to joint tenancy, holding title as community property with the right of survivorship allows the survivor to automatically receives the decedent’s interest in the property without a will or probate. But, unlike with joint tenancy with right of survivorship, this form allows the survivor to take a full step-up in basis rather than only half at the death of the first spouse. Holding Property If You Have A Revocable Living Trust (“Trust”) If you have a Trust, check to make sure your property is in your Trust. Many people come to our office with all their Trust documents, but after doing a title search, we discover that none of their property has been transferred into the Trust. To make sure your property is in the Trust, check your Grant Deed to ensure the name of your Trust is on the Deed. There are several key benefits to holding your property in a Trust. First, upon the passing of the first person, the survivor

will automatically receive the decedent’s interest in the property while also bypassing the probate process. Second, the survivor will receive the full step up in basis for tax purposes assuming the title to the property was previously as community property or the Trust provides that the property is community. Third, if both Trustees are still living and one person becomes incapacitated, the other Trustee is able to manage or even sell the property without the need of a conservatorship or using a power of attorney. If you are concerned about how you are holding title to your property, come visit us and we can check for you. Additionally, if you find that you are not holding property in a manner most beneficial for you and your family, we can help you make the change.

AMY’S BRIGHT ADVICE

How Do You Define Success?

Success is defined by Webster’s Dictionary as the fact of getting or achieving wealth, respect, or fame. But, thank goodness, today that definition has transitioned within our society into more than just the state of our bank accounts and/or how others perceive us. Our society has made many unfortunate changes throughout the years but I truly believe that this is something that we as Americans can be proud of. I believe success is defined by who you are when no one is looking; one who has a superior work ethic, a strong faith and a great desire to serve and lead others down the same path. We need to ask ourselves questions in order to evaluate whether we have reached a stature of successfulness, but also realize that there is no limit to the range in which that can truly be measured. Do you see success as how others perceive you or is it more of a personal view of yourself? Is success really attainable or is it something that one will continuously spend their lives trying to achieve, and is that striving what makes you more successful than others? All these questions will help

you formulate how you see success for yourself and if you are on the correct path to achieving that state. The other thing we must remember is that what we believe success looks like might actually be smoke and mirrors. Think of all the famous and wealthy people that on the outside look like they have it all together but then we find out that they are completely broken and miserable on the inside, would you still look at them as a definition of someone successful or not? Wouldn’t you rather be completely without financial means but live in a state of complete joy and feel spiritually complete and whole? Jesus defined success as one who puts others and God above himself with no desire to have personal recognition and reward for serving with great love. Why is it that when we help others or are able to give to others we feel blessed? Maybe success is knowing that you have made a difference and maybe even leaving behind a legacy that others can follow. New Ways to Measure Success. • Character in solitude. Those who display character in the dark will always reflect it in the light. • Contentment in circumstance. Rich is the man or woman who can find contentment in any circumstance. • Courage during adversity. Courage can only be revealed when it is required. • Faithfulness in commitment. Those whose words are true. •

Generosity in abundance.

Gratitude despite circumstance.

• Humility in accomplishment. Those who are quick to deflect praise in accomplishment ought to be first in receiving it. • Integrity in the details. Those who show integrity in the little things of life will typically display it in the bigger things as well. • Kindness to the weak. Our true measure of kindness is shown in how we treat those who will never repay us. • Love for enemies. It takes a special type of person to extend love towards those who treat us unjustly. • Perseverance in failure. We will all at some point face failure. Successes are those who get back up and try again. •

Respect for authority.

• Responsibility for mistake. Only those who can admit their mistakes have the opportunity to learn from them. The ultimate question we need to ask ourselves on a daily basis is: have you defined goals and action items in order to be successful and if you don’t believe that you are successful or on the road to success what can you do today to change that?

Hercules Dental Care in Brentwood Dentists, Dr. Douglas Lin, Dr. Shailan Patel and Dr. Francis Cruz and all the dental staff at Hercules Dental Care in Brentwood are committed to providing you with the personalized, high quality dental care that you deserve. They offer patients a comprehensive list of general, restorative and cosmetic dental services designed to meet the needs of the entire family. Their goal is to assist each patient in achieving and maintaining long-term dental health and an attractive smile. As a practice, the staff and dentists at Hercules Dental Care are true believers that preventive care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. They strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care.” That’s why they focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams and taking x-rays when necessary. Not only are they focused on the beauty of your smile; they’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help them stay informed of your overall health, any new medications and any illnesses that may impact your dental health. As your dental health professionals, you’ll be confident knowing the dentists and staff is a team of highly trained

and skilled clinicians. In order to give you the best possible service and results, they are committed to continual education and learning. They attend dental lectures, meetings and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-theart dental care. Serving Brentwood area patients includes providing information that helps patients make more informed decisions about their oral health needs and the dental treatments they are receiving. In addition, Hercules Dental Care in Brentwood is uncompromising when it comes to your safety. As such, infection control in the Brentwood office is very important. To protect patients and themselves, they strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes recommended by the ADA, OSHA and the CDC. And a couple of other really great features that set them apart are, first, the dental video page on their website. It contains a library of videos related to the dental procedures and treatment options they offer, so you’ll know exactly what to expect from your procedure. Next, their online appointment request form helps making your appointment a breeze and, finally, should a dental emergency occur, the doctors will make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible. At Hercules Dental Care in Brentwood, they know that building a foundation of trust by treating patients as special individuals is vital to their success. They understand how uneasy some patients

may feel about their dental visits, and how they can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. So, the entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible. TESTIMONIALS I have been here three times and each time is a pleasure from the moment I am greeted by the front desk to all the people who take care of me. The staff is wonderful!
