Have you been dieting and excercising and you just can’t seem to move the scale? What happens as we age, our bodies change! Hence, the old muffin top. Our hormones get imbalanced and the hypothalamus in our brain, which regulates the hormone that determines whether you burn or store fat, stops working at full capacity.

All photos were displayed at the Opening Day Celebration of East County’s History on April 6th at the Historical Society. We had such a great response with photos depicting East Contra Costa County submitted and several photos will appear on the cover of future editions of The Monthly Grapevine. First place was a photo titled “Spring in Bloom” by Gwen Tantiato, Second place winner was a photo titled “Boat on a Dock” by Stephen Hollingsworth, which graces our East County Cover this month and Third place was a photo titled “Garden Splendor” by Tom Stater. For those of you who were not able to attend this function, you can preview these photos on Facebook where you will also find the names of our honorable mention awards.

Holy Hair Salon & Boutique After working as a welder for 10 years, Trayce Just decided it was time for a career change. With her love of hair and all things “artsy”, she thought becoming a hairdresser would be a great fit, so in 2006, Trayce opened Holy Hair Salon and Boutique in Downtown Brentwood. Trayce tells us she’s always been a self-starter and an overachiever. When she wants something or has what she believes is a good idea, she’ll put forth 110% effort to make it happen. “My heart and soul is in this salon and I think these qualities prepared me for business ownership,” says Trayce. She adds, “I knew on day one of beauty school that I would own my own salon one day. I had a vision of a comfortable, welcoming place where clients would feel special and at home and they would leave feeling and looking their best, both inside and out.” Sometimes, walking into a salon can feel intimidating, but, with the eclectic, rustic and vintage style at Holy Hair, you’ll feel the great, welcoming vibe as soon as you walk in. The salon is very comfortable and everyone is

exceptionally friendly and engaging. Trayce has made Holy Hair a place for clients to relax and escape from their busy and hectic lives. “I think as busy people in this hectic world, it’s nice to have a place to unwind, feel good and leave looking great,” she says. In addition, the staff at Holy Hair Salon and Boutique is amazingly talented and you can feel their passion for their craft. They offer haircuts, color customized to your individual needs, hair extensions, keratin treatments, nail services, pedicures and cheap therapy! Trayce says, “We love working in an industry that can help people feel really good about themselves. Whether it’s the great haircut or style we give them, the heart to heart talk, or the welcome little escape from their daily routine.” She adds, “I would like our customers to leave feeling like we have exceeded their beauty expectations. We do this by listening to their needs and wants and by giving them a great look that fits their lifestyle. We also want to connect with them as a person so they’ll already be looking forward to their next visit!” What’s next for this entrepreneur extraordinaire? The sky is the limit. In her off time, Trayce makes jewelry out of recycled bullet casings and hand picked stones. She loves creating beautiful things out of vintage items and giving them new life and you can

find some of these items at her shop. These little side businesses are a nice compliment to the salon and her style. Also, Trayce’s better half, Joe Mackey, recently opened and operates Holy Hair Balls Mobile Dog Grooming - a nice fit, as it speaks to their love of animals and their beauty needs! Additionally, they love supporting local community schools, organizations and donate time and money to animal charities, such as H.A.R.P. Testimonials Fabulous salon! Trayce NEVER disappoints!!! – Joanna J., Brentwood Sarah’s hair coloring is unsurpassed! Her blowouts are second to none! She turns my unruly/unsophisticated naturally curly hair into sleek perfection! – Stephanie S., Brentwood I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Trayce! She takes her time with me when I come in for an appointment, so much so that I feel like I’m her only client! She has taken her time to get to know me and my hair and found the perfect style for me. Her staff is so professional and friendly. I really enjoy my time spent at Holy Hair, and trust me I spend a lot of time there! – Sunny S., Stockton Holy Hair Salon & Boutique is located

at 729 First St., Suite A in Brentwood. They can be contacted at 925-634-8267.

TRAVEL TIME

Summer Travel Greetings for the month of May and, whether or not you like it, summer is definitely knocking on our door. To that end, we do let you know that travel to Europe will be at its peak very shortly and that means summer air travel. Prices for airfare this summer are higher than average, but you can find deals out there. Just keep checking, and we do highly recommend that you check the airline web sites rather than search engines that include multiple airlines. The reason for that is because airlines, under normal circumstances, will place their fares on sale on their own web sites first then shift to the various search engines that will give you pricing for multiple airlines. It appears that the best pricing for an airfare at this time is 80 days prior to flight time. Within 30 days is the highest airfare and the closer you get to flight time, the higher the price, in general.

Going through a tour operator or cruise line might make more sense, as this year, many are having special air deals with certain airlines. Going through a tour operator does not mean you have to take a tour, as many offer a la carte services. What that means is, you just use them for flying into and out of your host city and usually rent a car. You can, of course, book hotels just as well and we here at Getaway can help you with that. Also, the cruise lines have made great strides in their efforts to get the ships filled this summer. The big cruise lines, like Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Princess and NCL have somehow made special air arrangements with various airlines and are generating prices that are very attractive and competitive. So there is a way to get to Europe and still make it affordable this summer. And by calling us and allowing us to help you GETAWAY FROM YOUR EVERYDAY, you just might be surprised in a good way. And, of course, if you just don’t want to fly, there is still the great opportunity of experiencing a cruise right here from

San Francisco as Princess Cruises has decided to base a ship right here in our own home port of San Francisco. The GRAND PRINCESS® will be sailing 15 day Hawaii cruises, 10 day Alaska cruises, 10 day Mexico cruises and also 7 day California Coastal cruises and ALL cruises are roundtrip from San Francisco. And just in case you are interested, we have a special group rate for the 10 day cruise to Mexico on September 17. The Grand will stop at Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, La Paz, Loreto and Los Angeles. Just contact us NOW and you will see places South of the Border without even having to take a plane. Remember, we are here for you 7 days each week so there is no reason why you cannot GETAWAY FROM YOUR EVERYDAY. By land or sea, we’ll help you in anyway and the best way we can.

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.

Who’s Who... in East County

One of the oldest businesses in Antioch, Schwinn City Bicycle Shop has been located in the same building since 1940. They sell and repair bicycles and bike accessories and specialize in custom fitting and special orders. As a long time Antioch resident, owner, Ron Lopez remembers shopping at Schwinn City as a child. When the previous owner needed help fixing bicycles, Ron began working there as a young teen. In Sept 2007, Ron and his wife Kelly had the opportunity to buy Schwinn City. Since then, they’ve worked really hard to provide great customer service to support all types of riders/cyclists, as well as others who use wheelchairs, walkers or, really, anything with wheels. Ron and Kelly’s philosophy is that customer service and satisfaction are key to the success of any small business. They feel that any customer that purchases a bike, no matter how much it costs, is just as important as another. Every customer’s experience will be the same, with personalized, friendly and informative service that ensures satisfaction. And you’re in capable hands when you purchase your bike or have it repaired at Schwinn City. To ensure a great fit, they encourage test rides before purchase and welcome any questions you may have. Ron has worked in and managed bike shops for many years and has worked on the road for world-class level cyclists. In addition, he is a Barnett Bicycle Institute certified mechanic, and you’ll get lifetime service for any bike purchased from Schwinn City. They also offer 60-day no-interest layaway. As a small, local business, Ron & Kelly love being part of the community and support local schools and various non-profit organizations. So, stop by Schwinn City and have a chat with them. With their dedication to helping you find a bike that fits your budget, needs and wants, you’re sure to leave with the perfect bicycle!

FOR YOUR DENTAL HEALTH

HPV Related Oro-pharyngial Cancer HPV is Human Papilloma Virus and it is the fastest growing sexually transmitted infection. HPV has accounted for a 225% increase in oro-pharyngial cancers in the past few years. The virus HPV-16 that is responsible for 70 to 80% of all cervical cancers is solely responsible for 85 to 95% of HPV related oro-pharyngial cancers. Data projections quote that the number of oro-pharyngial cancers that are HPV positive will surpass the annual number of cervical cancers by the year 2020. HPV-oropharyngial cancer is currently rated the second most common HPV-associated cancer after cervical cancer. Oral cancer can be disfiguring and deadly when diagnosed in its later stages.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. Most people who become infected with HPV are not even aware that they have an infection. At least 50% of sexually active men and women will acquire a genital HPV infection at some point in their lives. Most often, the immune system is strong enough to eradicate the virus from our bodies with minimal or no symptoms. Although there are other ways to contract HPV, when in it’s active stage, it can even be passé on with kissing. The virus may then lay hidden and dormant for several years. The most common sites for HPV related orpharyngial cancer are the base of the tongue, the oropharyngeal area, tonsils and tonsillar pillars. There are a number of symptoms that accompany this type of cancer that we should be aware of. They include, but are not limited to hoarseness, continuous sore throat, throat infections not responding to antibiotics, pain and difficulty swallowing, non healing oral ulcers and bleeding in the mouth or

throat, ear pain and a feeling that something is stuck in the throat or a lump in the throat. The location of these cancers makes it even more difficult to detect them, and once detected, the gold standard is to get a biopsy done and get treated. Therefore, it is extremely important to get oral cancer screening done during you regular visits to the dentist, because early discovery of abnormal lesions makes a huge impact on better treatment outcomes, improved survival rates, and a better quality of life.

HEALTH

WHO’S BEEN SNOOPED?

I found his staff to be very helpful and friendly and learned that they have a multitude of services to offer. They include Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, Sclerotherapy, Laser Hair Removal, Portrait Plasma, Tattoo Removal, Laser Tx for Hyperpigmintation, Obagi Skin Care, Derma Quest, Latisse, Facials & Peels, Tri Active and Waxing Services. Now, for those of you who don’t know what some of these services are, you can go to their website and click on services to find out more. Having been a fan of Obagi Skin Care, I was really interested in their spa services to take care of my skin and I have considered Restylane treatments. After talking with the receptionist, I would love to take advantage of their specials listed in their ad this month.

Here it is the 15th of April, one of the most dreaded days of the year. With the sky blue and the farmlands bursting with activity, you would never know it was tax time. As I drive through the city, I am witnessing fresh planted flowers in the gardens, new businesses opening and people shopping. This is a perfect time of year to check in on a local business that bring out the beauty in you. Dr Andrew Ness founded Delta Aesthetics in order to help his patients attain greater self confidence as he helps them bring out their individual natural beauty. Conveniently located on Lone Tree Road in Antioch, he can serve patients from all over the bay area.

In talking with many women, I have found that they are really skeptical about going to Botox parties to take away those unwanted wrinkles. Delta Aesthetics will explain the service, discuss the cost and take care of your skin by skilled professionals in a clean and safe environment. That counts ten points in my book.

He has extensive training in laser techniques, fillers, sclerotherapy and healthy skin care and is Board Certified in Family Practice, Sports Medicine and Phlebotomy and is an Associate Member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Physicians. That being said, I was ready to investigate.

Now the fun part! You can go to an open house on May 17th from 11:00am to 7:00pm to take advantage of a savings on Botox and Obagi products. Of course,

you need to call to make a reservation, but if they are out of appointments, you can pay on the 17th and schedule for another day. Wouldn’t it be great to get ready for the summer fun with a beautiful new you? I also learned that Dr. Ness was an Olympic team physician, helping athletes reach the pinnacle of athletic success through the beauty of movement. Now in this field, he is helping patients enhance their inner beauty. Now that is impressive! And he has worked in the industry for over 10 years and has developed a system of individual care for each of his patients to not only enhance your natural beauty but to maintain it. Another ten points. His staff has been trained cosmetically and medically to answer any questions you might have about your skin care. So Dr. Ness, the Monthly Grapevine gives you five crystal hour glasses for turning back the time on your patients and bringing such a friendly and caring atmosphere for all of us to enjoy. Who will be snooped next? It could be you!

Delta Aesthetics is located at 3807

Lone Tree Way in Antioch. They can be reached at 925-757-5311 or visit www. DeltaAesthetics.com.

REALTOR IN MOTION

“Walkability” A New Term in Real Estate We’ve all heard that real estate is about location-locationlocation, so when it comes to buying a home, where the home is located will most always be the biggest factor in the buying decision. But today Realtors and Buyers have a unique tool to assist them in selecting their next home; it’s called walkability, or Walk Score. The Walk Score is a number between 0-100 that measures the walkability of any address. The purpose of the Walk Score is to help prospective buyers locate a home and grade it based on the availability of walkable access to amenities such as schools, groceries, restaurants, shopping, parks, and a multitude of other destinations. In an environment where focus has turned to health and community benefits, a high walk score can increase the value of a home by as much as $3000.

As I preview the MLS of a recent new listing, a small green button quickly takes me to a Walk Score page. Depending on your score, you’re either very car-dependent, car-dependent, somewhat walkable, very walkable, or in a walker’s paradise. If your walkability score lands above 70, most every errand can be accomplished on foot. This home I previewed showed a score of 31, so they’ll need their car. In the age of technology, you have to look at your commute. The walkability page can tell a Buyer how long it will take to get to work whether they drive, walk, take a bus, or bicycle. It calculates the monthly driving costs as well as how many hours you’ll spend commuting. It provides you the specific names of nearby restaurants, coffee shops, and, of course, schools. Schools play an important factor for families buying a home. Getting into the right school district can save thousands if your only other alternative is private schools. Being able to walk to school can be a very big advantage. The Walk Score is just another piece of the puzzle that helps everyone

get more information. Some factors that aren’t calculated into the grade are street designs, neighborhood crime issues, and safety issues such as lighting and traffic. Weather and topography are also ignored, so you’ll just have to know these. So now you know about walkability. It’s been said that people in walkable neighborhoods weigh 6-10 lbs less; they’re happier, healthier, and less stressful. So, the next time you inquire about a home, I’d be happy to discuss walkability.

If you’d like to discuss owning or selling a home, call me directly, I’d love to discuss your choices. You can reach me directly at Ridgewater Real Estate Services, 9000 Brentwood Blvd, Brentwood, CA 94513 925-437-5831, or email me at: paulkelly @realtorinmotion.biz

ON THE HOUSE

Don’t Throw Away Ashes If you burn wood for warmth, cooking or whatever, the ashes that result can be unbelievably useful. And that’s a good thing because a cord of firewood will leave behind approximately 20 pounds of ash. By the way, the use of wood ashes is not a new science. Over 5000 years ago folks made lye by running water through ashes. Lye was combined with animal fat to make soap. It worked pretty well too. So well that lye water was also used for scrubbing wood floors and laundering clothing. Nearly 50 centuries later, we grew up using homemade lye soap that our Great Grandfather sold in his grocery store. Believe it or not, there are tons of other uses for wood ashes in and around your home. Here are a few: Ashes contain calcium, potassium, and a variety of trace minerals important for plant health. They also work well as a lime substitute to raise the pH of acid soils. However, unlike limestone, which can take six months or more to change

clean gummy residues left by stickers and labels. WD40 eat your heart out. Here’s how to do it. Dampen a soft cloth and dip it in the ashes (or you can make a thick paste of ashes and a few drops of water) scrub lightly and rinse with plain water and dry-again with a soft cloth. Wear gloves for these scrubbing tasks to avoid caustic burns. Remember, you are basically using a homemade lye cleaner.

soil pH, wood ash is water-soluble and changes the soil pH rapidly. Apply roughly twice as much ash by weight as the recommendation for limestone. Oh, and don’t apply ashes around acid-loving plants such as blueberries, rhododendrons, azaleas or hollies – they love the acid soil they live in. Wear eye protection, gloves, and a dust mask, and spread the ashes evenly on a dry, windless day. Mix them into the soil thoroughly. Hose off any ashes that settle on actively growing plants to prevent burning the foliage. CAUTION: Don’t apply wood ashes to your garden, lawn, or ornamental plantings without first having a soil test. You can get traction on icy walks and driveways with a sprinkle of wood ash. Wood ash will melt ice and provide a safer walking surface. Ash doesn’t work quite as well as salt, and ashes tracked into the house can make a mess. So, it’s important to take steps to prevent the ashes from being tracked into the house. But ashes are free, and they won’t damage plants, animal paws, paved surfaces, or cause rust. If you have a fireplace, you may already know that hardwood ash works great for cleaning glass fireplace doors. Hardwood ashes make fast work of grease, grime and tarnish on glass, silverware, ovenware, grills, and glass stovetops. Ash will also

Does your driveway look like an Indy 500 pit stop? You can reduce or remove oil stains on asphalt, stone, and cement by sprinkling ashes on oil or grease spills. Simply cover the area with ashes and then rub them into the affected area with a soft bristle brush and sweep up. Repeat if necessary. CAUTION: Even though the ashes may appear cold, buried embers may remain live for days or even weeks. So, be very careful when collecting ashes. Be absolutely sure no embers remain. Filter the ashes through a fine grate and store them in a metal container. When using ashes, treat them as you would any other caustic cleaner; safety glasses, gloves and a breathing mask.

Who’s Who... in East County

In the late 80’s, Jeff McThorn, owner of Delta Watercraft worked at a Personal Water Craft (PWC) repair shop and that experience plus his love of water and riding PWC inspired him to open his own business in 1998. One of Jeff’s favorite things to do with friends and family is being on the water and he feels very lucky to have been able to turn his hobby into his work. At Delta Watercraft, Jeff is very experienced and has all the tools and diagnostic equipment to complete any type of repair. In addition, he offers excellent service and quality work at a fraction of other’s prices. Jeff says that many customers come to him after paying almost double at other places for the same work, only to find out they have been over charged. They offer factory scheduled service and maintenance, engine and supercharger rebuilding, jet pump and driveline repair and performance modifications. They also have Waverunner and boats for rent. It is Jeff’s goal for all customers to leave understanding what work was done and knowing they got a top quality job at a fair price. So, give Delta Watercraft a call you’ll be glad you did!
