WHO’S BEEN SNOOPED?

Let the Sun Shine In! Finally, a full day of sunshine! It is the third week in April and with Memorial Day only one month away, the beautiful farmlands are finished with the cherry blossoms and filled with those tiny little cherries waiting for the 100,000 plus visitors to come enjoy this years harvest. What a perfect time to look in on a local business that can let the sun shine in. Sixteen years ago, Dustin Yocum, started a company called World Class Window Coverings right here in Brentwood. Lucky for us who have had him take care of our homes, we not only have the highest quality product and workmanship, but the luxury of having the showroom brought right to our door. OK, this is the best way to choose colors, patterns and designs without carrying those samples home from the store, especially when you have your own personal designer helping you along the way. Ten extra points!

I think I liked their attention to customer service the best. Their “old fashioned world class, red carpet treatment” is what makes them such a huge success. They are licensed, bonded, insured and all of their installers and designers are employees and they do not use subcontractors. So the world class service is truly home grown.

out all the great comments from past customers. So World Class, this secret shopper gives you ten golden rays of sunshine since you have brightened my world and so many others for years. You are a wonderful asset to our area and I highly recommend your services to all our readers. Who will be snooped next? It could be you.

When they come to your home for a consultation, it is stress free and an organized, professional smooth process. They only use vendors with exceptional quality products. So at this point, you are probably remembering that “affordable” set of blinds you bought at a big box store, hung yourself and it managed to break three times, making huge holes in your wall. Trust me, call Dustin and never worry about it again. Now put down your Grapevine and go to their website worldclassco.com and click on the photo gallery. They have blinds, plantation shutters, roman shades, roller shades, solar shades and custom coverings made exclusively for your home. This is the part I like since you can let your imagination run wild and then have the pros come in to guide you along the way. While you are on their site, check

FOR YOUR DENTAL HEALTH

lung disease, kidney and liver damage and suicidal thoughts. Other problems associated with meth abuse are rapid weight loss, pale complexion, nervousness and rapid aging.

Meth Mouth Methamphetamine abuse is becoming increasingly prevalent and has devastating effects on its users. It is a highly addictive drug and stimulates the brain by enhancing the mood and intensifying body movements. The typical meth abuser uses the drug more than 20 times per month than the typical patterns of abuse in other illegal drugs such as cocaine. Meth abuse was originally believed to be concentrated in rural areas but now it has been reported as the drug of choice in urban areas as well. Meth use has been most pronounced among males between ages of 19 and 40. Meth has both short and long term effects on the body. Short-term effects include euphoria, increase in energy, loss of appetite, sleeplessness, tremors, nausea, vomiting, seizures and unpredictable behavior. Long-term effects are high blood pressure, brain damage, skin and heart infections, hepatitis, stroke,

Meth causes a lot of damage in the mouth such as rapid increase in cavities, dry mouth, bad breath, wearing of teeth, teeth fractures, uncontrollable jaw clinching and multiple tooth loss. The cavities can be so rapid that the teeth may be destroyed forcing the patient to end up in dentures. Danger to the teeth also comes from increase in the intake of sugars due to carbohydrate craving while using the drug. Patients who abuse meth usually do not maintain oral hygiene, which adds to the rapid increase in cavities and gum infections. Soft tissues in the mouth also get infected with candida, which causes fungal infection all over the mouth. Meth abuse is on the increase and it does so much destruction to the entire body. As discussed earlier meth does alot of destruction to the teeth but getting a complete dental exam from the dentist will help to take care of the dental issues. Meth users may be reluctant to admit it’s use and the addiction can occur rapidly so the treatment could be long and slow but

with the help of family and friends there is always hope to recovery

Summer Home Improvements That Cost Less Than Your Smart Phone

Stay Cool With An Attic Fan Attic fans cost, on average, about $300 to install. That includes both parts and labor. There are a variety of different options to consider, including some solar-powered fans that can save you a lot of money over time. Your cost may also include repair to your roof or attic walls caused while you or your contractor cuts through to install the fan.

Summer brings the heat, but don’t sweat the cost when it comes time to do some of those summer home improvements.

Create Your Own Summer Breeze With A Ceiling Fan The total cost for a ceiling fan installation project depends on a few different factors. First, the cost of the fan itself is often the biggest expenditure, and the type and size of fan you choose will influence cost. A basic fan with no bells or whistles can cost as little as $50, but you can get bigger and fancier and still stay under $700. For example, a remotecontrolled fan can cost as little as $130, and a wet-rated fan suitable for outdoor use can be as little as $100. You can hire a handyman to install your fan for about $60-$225 depending on how long and

While you can clean your windows yourself, it’s probably best to let a professional handle it, especially if you live in a multistory house and have large windows. The number of windows you have and their size will determine how close or far from the average your project is. Interior and exterior window cleaning for a home with 20 window panes has an average cost of $300-$400 but even the high-end price of $700 for thorough cleaning on a large home is less than the cost of the average premium smartphone. Refresh your interior spaces with carpet cleaning DIY carpet cleaning is simple and super cheap. The average price for a multiday carpet cleaner rental is about $50, and there’s essentially no limit to how much

HOME & LIFESTYLE

3 Ways To Be Even More Productive, Starting Now! There are just not enough hours in the day. Whether you are at work, on campus, or at home; there are many ways to stay productive through out your day. Productivity can be hard to manage, but with the correct mindset you will be able to set goals and achieve them on a daily basis. With these tips and tricks, your day will run smoother and you can end your day knowing you worked hard. The first thing to do is try and avoid multitasking. Many think that multitasking can help you achieve tasks more than once, but multitasking means that the effort put into these tasks can be less efficient. Multitasking can also cause huge distractions and cause you to forget what tasks you were even trying to focus on. The tip here is to tackle one task at a time before completing another. Find a quiet

spot or place that can help you focus, whether it is a quiet room in the house or even playing your favorite song to help you focus. The second is to shift most your workload to the beginning of the week, so you don’t push your tasks aside. It can be paperwork, filing, laundry or vacuuming. Try to get these things done earlier in the week so that the work load doesn’t pile on too close to the weekend. If writing everything down on a post it or setting reminders on your phone helps, then do that! Anything and everything can be the difference in spreading out your workload or having too much on your plate by the end of the week. Also, be accountable, tell family members and friends of your goals for the week and tell them the results. It will make you feel that much better that you could get things done. The final tip here is, turn off social media. As hard as this can be in a world dependent on technology, it can have huge results on your productivity. Checking in on apps such as Facebook and Twitter can take up a huge percentage of your day and time. Your phone or computer does not need to be completely turned off, but just try to ignore the apps during the day so you can

focus on your day and your goals. You can spend so much time just scrolling through apps and wasting time, you will never get anything done and just like that the day is over. These tips and trick can help you have a more productive week and feel better about yourself by the time the weekend comes around.

If an asset is titled as Joan Grimes, Trustee of the Grimes Family Trust dated January 1, 2018, it may cause problems! The name and date must match perfectly!

rule). If you wish to learn more, you should review these assets with an attorney to determine whether transferring them to your Trust is appropriate for you.

Did You Properly Fund Your Trust?

2. Check Your Grant Deed– Check your grant deed and read it carefully to see if it lists your name or Trust. If your Trust name is listed, make sure every word matches your Trust name and date. If only your name is listed, your property is NOT in your Trust.

What Happens if I Die and My Trust is Not Properly Funded?

You went to see an estate planning attorney and you established your Revocable Living Trust. Yah! You are all done! Right? Many clients think that is all they need to do. Unfortunately, they are often missing the most important step: funding! After you establish your Revocable Living Trust, it must be funded. To fund your Trust, you or your attorney must re-title your assets to properly reflect that the asset has been transferred to your Trust. Are my Assets in my Trust? 1. Identify Your Trust Name – Every Trust has a name and establishment date. Generally, your Trust name and date will be included on the first page of your Trust. Read your name carefully. Every word is important! Here is an example. Let’s pretend my Trust name is Joan Grimes, Trustee of the Grimes Living Trust dated January 1, 2018.

3. Check Your Bank and Brokerage Statements – The easiest way to tell whether your bank or brokerage accounts have been transferred to your Trust, is to check the name in the top left corner (where your name and address are generally listed). Look to see if your Trust name is included. 4. Business Interests, LLCs – Depending on your circumstances, you may have assigned your business interest or LLC to your Trust. If you wish to assign your interest, you should discuss this with an attorney to ensure that the governing documents authorize the transfer. 5. Retirement Accounts and Life Insurance Policies – Retirement accounts and life insurance policies are not generally transferred into a Revocable Living Trust because it can trigger certain tax consequences (however, there are sometimes exceptions to this general

If your Trust has not been properly funded when you die, your beneficiaries may be required to open a probate to transfer the asset. Probates in California are very expensive and can often take over a year to complete. Check your assets to see if they have been properly transferred to your Trust! Some estate planning attorneys will fund your Trust for you. However, it is important to check all of your assets (particularly assets you have acquired since establishing your Trust) to ensure they have been properly transferred. If you would like me to review your Trust, I meet with clients Monday - Friday for a FREE 30 minute consultation. We have offices in Walnut Creek and Brentwood. This article provides only general legal information, and not specific legal advice. Information contained is not a substitute for a personal consultation with an attorney. © 2018 Joan Grimes

They make it easy to schedule and worked within our time constraints to get our truck ready for a trip over the Sierra's and even worked the weekend to make it travel ready.
