We all know the basic ingredients for a healthy lifestyle are getting plenty of sleep, regular physical activity and eating nutritiously. Fortunately, our local farms make eating healthy food easy and inexpensive.

The Monthly Grapevine® 9040 Brentwood Boulevard, Suite B Brentwood, CA 94513 Main Office: 925.634.0880, Fax 925.634.7822 Write us at: info@monthlygrapevine.com

Shopping locally applies to healthy eating too. Buying local food keeps our dollars circulating in our community and is fresher and tastes better. Local farmers can offer food produced for taste, rather than for shipping and long shelf life. It’s better for the environment, because local food doesn’t have far to travel, reducing carbon dioxide emissions and packing materials. At our produce stands and farmer’s markets, you’ll find everything from almonds, walnuts & pistachios to plums, persimmons & pears. Enjoy an outing to a local farm for U-Pick cherries, apricots, peaches or berries. Just-picked tomatoes, onions and peppers make for a flavorful salsa. Any meal tastes better with fresh vegetables, like green beans, peas or cucumbers. You’ll even find items such as honey, oils & vinegars, homemade pies and wines. 6

TRAVEL TIME

Feature Celebrity Cruises & their Solstice class ships. This month we feature Celebrity Cruises and their Solstice class ships. They are truly innovative, creative and downright made just for you and your cruising comfort and enjoyment. They feature spacious staterooms 15 percent larger than other Celebrity class ships. Passengers are treated to the “Lawn Club” and “Hot Glass Show” at sea -- which Cruise Critic calls “the two most iconic attributes of the Solstice class.” In 2009, Celebrity Equinox became the second ship under the Solstice moniker. Celebrity Eclipse joined the fleet in April 2010. As of September 2010, two more Solstice class ships -- Celebrity Silhouette and Celebrity Reflection -- were slated for launch in July 2011 and November 2012, respectively.

The Lawn Club brings the country-club vibe to the top deck of Solstice ships with real grass and outdoor activities like Bocce and putting greens. The Corning Museum of Glass introduced one-of-a-kind “Hot Glass-Blowing” shows. Passengers can find sanctuary in the AquaSpa, where a Persian Garden steam room, tropical rain shower and heated ocean-facing lounge chairs await. The sleek Martini Bar, a quiet alcove with caviar and vodka pairings, is one of 14 bars to choose from. Quasar is a contemporary dance club -- the ship’s disco, and a late-night hot spot. Sommeliers taste samples from around the world at Cellar Masters. Fortunes Casino boasts 200 machines and 16 tables. The main dining rooms present glass wine towers, private table-fortwo options and fine cuisine. Cruise Critic editors favor Murano, saying, “the a la carte menu choices are bold -- caviar, escargots, sweetbreads, foie gras, venison and the like -- but familiar faves abound: filet mignon, duck breast, lobster tail, surf and turf.” At the Celebrity iLounge, guests can buy Apple products, check email on MacBook workstations, listen to iPods

and take film editing courses. At the Qsine restaurant, passengers view their menus and wine lists on an iPad. As Cruisemates describes the fun food choices, “menu item ‘Popcorn Fish’ is bite-sized battered and fried codfish served in a movie-theater popcorn box, while spring rolls come to the table impaled on bouncy metal springs.” Chic. Modern. Sophisticated. Celebrity cruise ships consistently rank among the best in the world. Every cruiser, from first-time to discerning, will enjoy the premium experience of a Celebrity cruise. Everything onboard has been designed to engage you, pamper you, and renew you. Our fleet combines modern-day technology with inspired style, world-class cuisine, luxurious accommodations and superlative service. Check out our website for current Celebrity specially priced cruises then call us to book. You will not be disappointed-we guarantee it. 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.

FOR YOUR DENTAL HEALTH

Oral Cancer and Human Papillomavirus Oral cancer is a growing problem among people 40 and older, especially smokers, smokeless tobacco users, and alcohol drinkers. However, according to the American Dental Association more than 25% of those who are diagnosed with oral cancer do not fall into this category. Oral cancer can be disfiguring and deadly when diagnosed in its later stages. Tobacco and alcohol use are the two main factors other than family history that could put patients at high risk. Now there is a relatively new risk factor that is rapidly overtaking smoking and alcohol drinkers as the primary cause for newly diagnosed cases of oral cancer: the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). There are about 34,000 cases of the oropharyngeal cancers diagnosed each year and HPV is now found in up to fifty percent of them. There are various

types of Human Papilloma Viruses and the most common kind causing the oral cancers are HPV-16 and HPV-18. It is very challenging to make early diagnosis of cancerous lesions caused by HPV as it usually occurs in the back of the throat or the base of the tongue, well beyond the view of the naked eye or, so to speak, below the horizon. For example, the actor Michael Douglas who had access to the best medical care available was diagnosed with oropharyngeal cancer at stage 4. Although, Michael Douglas’ cancer has not been officially attributed to oral HPV, it is a fact that the location of his tumor was at the base of his tongue and beyond the doctor’s field of vision, which is the challenging factor. The risk category for oral HPV includes anyone over the age of 12 years who is sexually active or who has had more than three sex partners. There are about 1700 people developing HPV related oral HPV cancers each year. If you are a parent you hate to think that your child can be infected with sexually transmitted diseases before graduating from middle school, but it is the new reality which is the result of a major misconception that oral sex is safe sex. This new reality is

one of the reasons behind the change in dentistry to become more involved in the general wellness of the whole body. There are now noninvasive diagnostic tests that dentists can recommend to screen and identify the various types of oral HPV infection. Therefore, it is highly recommended for kids and adults to get regular checkups with the dentist to find any changes in the mouth or the surrounding areas early on. This is important because abnormal cells in the mouth can progress to a pre-cancerous state with little warning. Early detection can minimize or eliminate the potentially disfiguring effects of oral cancer and possibly even save your life. Apollo Dental Care is the dental office of Dr. Sue Padavettan D.D.S.

PACIFIC FUNDING GROUP

flux as policy makers desperately search for a solution to our real estate debacle.

market stability, and reinforce the importance of borrowers working with their servicers when they have difficulty repaying their debt, are not the first of their kind. According to FHA commissioner David Sterns, “we are beginning to think about postrecession, how you address borrowers who became unemployed through no fault of their own ... and now deserve the right to re-enter the housingfinance system.”

In the latest chapter of this ongoing (like an allergy attack once it starts) saga, the government subsidized agency Fannie Mae has revamped their waiting period for borrowers who complete pre-foreclosure steps, or a deed-in-lieu foreclosure. Announced roughly a year ago, April 14th, 2010, and still very much in effect today, any borrower who participates in a shortsale or deed-in-lieu foreclosure, only has to wait two years before they are once again eligible to finance a home through Fannie Mae. The change, as stated by Fannie Mae’s announcement SEL-2010, is part of Fannie’s overall plan to “update several policies regarding the future eligibility of borrowers to obtain a new mortgage loan after experiencing a pre-foreclosure event.”

The Worst It’s Ever Been “The worst it’s ever been” can be used to relate to this year’s allergy season, as well as the collapse of the real estate market we find ourselves still trying to recover from. Watery eyes, congestion and a runny nose combined cannot hold a candle to foreclosure, short-sale or a substantial loss in your home’s equity. However, they can teach us a valuable lesson; when something no longer works we need to readjust accordingly in order to solve the problem. Think about it… if Claritin doesn’t work for you then you switch to Allegra, and if Allegra doesn’t work for you maybe you try Zrytec-D with a little bit of local Alfalfa honey. Whatever, your allergy drug of choice is, you don’t stop until you find it. The same approach can be witnessed by our ever changing lending guidelines, guidelines that seem to be in constant

If you have been through, or will be going through, a short-sale or foreclosure do not “beat yourself up.” As more and more people fall victim to allergies this season through no fault of their own, more and more homeowners are falling victim to circumstances outside of their control and losing their home. Both will pass; it is simply a matter of who proactively picks themselves up, gains knowledge through education, and attacks their problem!

There are multiple agencies – Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) – that share the same goal when it comes to the real estate market: to promote homeownership throughout the housing crisis. With that said, Fannie’s efforts to support overall

PRUDENTIAL REALTY

safe deposit box while the property is being marketed for lease or sale. If you choose to keep any of your valuables in your property, we recommend that they be kept under lock and key so that no one but you has access to them. We often leave our wallets and loose cash on the dresser or in the closet, but during the time the house is on the market it is a good idea to keep those things out of sight and in a drawer. Prescription medications are another targeted item. Don’t keep those in medicine cabinets. To that end, you should take precautions to protect your property so that it will not be damaged, lost, or stolen.

Protect Your Property And You Whether you are selling as a short sale or traditional sale and regardless of whether you are the owner or the tenant, it is equally important that you be aware of security and take precautions to keep you and your valuables safe while your property is marketed for lease or for sale. While the property is on the market, a variety of people including potential buyers, other Realtors, inspectors, and others will have access to your property. In anticipation, you should take steps to make sure that your property is safe for such visits.

On a side note, most insurance policies have a limit on the amount of cash that is covered; usually around two thousands dollars. It is also important that if you have any rare or out of the ordinary items, such as a Brian Wilson rookie card, you obtain a rider to insure full value. It is recommended that you consult your insurance company to be sure that your insurance coverage is adequate during the listing and escrow period for any losses which may occur including, but not limited to, personal injury, property damage and theft. Your

What are the threats that you should be aware of? The obvious threats are, of course, tangible items or personal property such as jewelry, decorative items and, of course, cash. It is recommended that jewelry, cash, important documents like “pink slips” and other valuables be placed in a

policy may not provide the proper coverage if the property is vacant. Perhaps the most valuable items are your family and you. It is common for potential buyers or renters to open windows and doors to check views and access. These doors and windows are not always re-locked and if they are seldom used by you then it may be overlooked. So get in the habit of doing a security check as soon as you get home or before you go to bed. Your Realtor will do everything possible to make the lease or sale of your property as convenient and safe as possible for you. However, they don’t live in the house and cannot be responsible for your property or your insurance coverage. Make sure you take the necessary steps to protect your stuff, yourself and your family. As always, if you have any questions feel free to give me a call or email for information.

WHO’S BEEN SNOOPED?

Quality You Can Stand On! Well folks, Spring has Sprung! The fruit trees in the farmlands have lost most of their flowers and the sprinklers are sending sparkling water diamonds into the morning sky. Residents are out pruning away the branches injured in the rainy winter and planting color spots to enhance their yards. What a great time to look in on a local business that can help you spruce up the inside of your home in time for Mother’s Day. Located right in the heart of Historic Downtown Brentwood is a home flooring company that is ready to help you get started. They were easy to find; I just followed Oak Street west, looked for the big palm tree in front of the famous Brentwood Fine Meats and pulled in the parking lot to find Smith’s Flooring. Having done a lot of home improvement, I consider myself a great shopper when it comes to finding the right place and the right price. I knew when I peeked in the front window; they were going to have enough floor samples for me to have some real fun.

Tim and Bev Smith, owners of Smith’s Flooring are ready and willing to answer any questions and assist you in choosing the right product, right color and the right price for your budget. Their slogan, “Quality you can stand on! Work we stand behind!” pretty much says it all. Unlike large warehouse chains who have limited varieties, limited inventory and employees who don’t have all the answers, Smith’s Flooring brings the personal service everyone needs when they decide to invest in their home. This award winning East County business offers custom hardwood floors, ceramic, tile & stone, trim& crown molding, bathroom design and they are laminate specialists. Flooring can make a dramatic impact in the rooms of your home. Their work will contribute to raising the resale value of your home. They help you choose the ideal floor to fit the style of your room and samples to take home to actually see how the project will look when it is finished. I liked the fact that they will also do the trim work and crown molding. This counts two points in my book. They also do waterproof outdoor flooring for your patios and padded laminate floors in trailers and RV’s. I told you these guys were great. Some of their suppliers are Anderson Wood Floors, Award Hardwood Floors,

B. A. Mullican, Bauwerk Hardwood, Berg & Berg AB Swedish and Boral Timber, Australia’s largest hardwood timer producer. The great part is, you can actually see the product rather than choose it from a pamphlet or binder. I think I liked the personal service best. I was able to hear a conversation between a customer and the owner and witnessed first hand how well you are treated by this quality company. I am sure everyone knows how frustrating it is to finally decide to install new flooring, especially when husbands and wives have a different opinion on color and design, but when you can put your trust in the pros to help you make those crucial decisions to get the best end result, it sure takes a lot of the grief out of a fun home project. The neat part is their vision and knowledge assists you in getting the right look, the right price and a finished product you can be proud of. So, Tim and Bev, having come from a family background of construction, this secret shopper gives you six gold stars for giving customers wonderful service, quality advice and making everyone feel welcome in your store. Who will be snooped next? It could be you!

Smith’s Flooring is located at 3877 Walnut Blvd. in Brentwood. They can be contacted at 925-240-7105.

ON THE HOUSE

Cleaning and Maintaining Your Fireplace Breaking news from the North Pole: Wellinformed sources have it that Ole’ St. Nick has been forced to replace his bright red uniform with a new one. All of this is as a result of extensive soiling due to unusually dirty fireplaces this holiday season... While we are sure that St. Nick’s wardrobe is something that is of concern to many, there are other more critical reasons to keep one’s fireplace and chimney clean and in tip top operating condition. In fact, a dirty chimney will not only diminish the effectiveness of a fireplace, but, with severe neglect, could be the reason for a chimney fire. And, chimney fires lead to house fires. According to statistics published by the National Fire Protection Association, 14,000 residential fires will be started by fireplaces, woodstoves and other solid fuel appliances. These are fires that may possibly have been prevented with regular chimney inspection, cleaning and repair.

The first step to having a healthy fireplace is by burning the right fuel. Never burn garbage, plastics, foil, coated paper, or painted or chemically treated scrap wood. In addition to causing an unfavorable build up on the interior of the firebox and chimney, these also produce noxious fumes which pollute the air (in & out of the home). Burn only seasoned split wood. Seasoning allows moisture in wood to evaporate. Forty-four per cent more heat can be generated from a seasoned log. A clean burning fire is a hotter fire with good drafting conditions that produce cleaner combustion and less smoke from the chimney. And keep in mind that a small romantic fire is much safer than a blazing one. The next step is to have your chimney inspected by a professional chimney sweep annually and, if necessary, cleaned of soot and creosote which is a chemical substance that forms when wood burns. It is the heavy creosote build up that becomes highly flammable often resulting in explosive chimney fires. According to the National Chimney Sweep Guild (NCSG), a national trade association for chimney sweeps, a visual inspection is all that is required for most chimneys. Whereas fees vary according to height and configuration of the fireplace, most visual inspections range from $50 to $80. In the case where a visual inspection is not adequate, many chimney sweeps are now

equipped to do more elaborate inspections with a video camera and monitor referred to as a “chimscan”. The chimscan is more costly than the visual inspection ($150 to $250), but will reveal significantly better information about the condition of a chimney. This is especially important when the integrity of the flue is in question due to age or damage from an earthquake or chimney fire. The damper is a steel or cast-iron door that opens or closes the throat of the firebox into the flue. It regulates draft and prevents the loss of heat up the chimney. The spark arrester is a cage-like device which is secured to the top of the chimney. It prevents sparks and ash from escaping and causing a fire on the roof or other potentially flammable substance. It will also keep squirrels, birds and raccoons from nesting in the chimney. Nesting materials can cause a serious safety hazard. Their droppings pose health risks because diseases may be transmitted through their fecal materials. A spark arrester will prevent this. Prices for a standard cleaning range from $80 to $150 for a single story home and between $95 and $175 for a two story home.

Heard it Through the Grapevine "I have found the Grapevine to be one of my best forms of advertising. I advertise my meat packs and catering in the magazine and I continue to get hits month after month. On a personal level, the Grapevine is the first publication that I pick up when I am looking for skilled labor. I highly recommend advertising in the Monthly Grapevine." Greg Karkas - Co-Owner Brentwood Fine Meats
