Keep It New Auto Service After working in independent shops then moving into dealerships and spending over 10 years there, Linn Small, owner of Keep It New Auto Service noted one consistent thing— people pay way too much and get way too little. He argued, fussed and complained, but the bottom line for some of these places was just simply that, the bottom line. After taking a long look at himself, he realized that he had 22+ years in the automotive industry, had worked on all kinds of things from aircraft, hovercraft and motorcycles to boats, RV’s and the occasional clogged toilet at home, and he asked himself, “Why do I need to follow in the footsteps of others when I could make my own?” He decided that he could do it differently and Keep it New Auto Service was born. Linn says, “I can’t believe the feedback I’ve received. I’m happy and honored to be able to help so many people. Come see me, have a chat and find out for yourself if you’re comfortable letting us service your vehicle.” The main objective at Keep It New Auto Service is to get you back on the road knowing that you were in good hands and that you understand what was wrong and how it was repaired.

There are no secrets, no games, and no surprises. Linn’s goals are to make a fair living helping people with the difficulties that arise with their cars. But he wants customers to know his shop is different. “Our integrity is worth more than the dollar. Find out for yourself-don’t just take our word for it--come visit us and decide for yourself. Let us show you it can be different,” says Linn. For most everything your car may need, Keep It New Auto Service is your one stop shop. They handle Window Regulators, Interior/Exterior Electrical, Radio/CD repair, Interior Trim, Heater/ Blower repair, Timing Belts, Bumpers, Water Pumps, Tires, Windshields and Clutches, to name just a few of the items your car may need repair or maintenance of. Buying a used car? They’ll even check it out for you at no charge. They can also take care of 30k, 60k & 90k services for many makes and models. Every vehicle is different and manufacturers vary their requirement for their vehicles. Keep It New Auto can structure each service to fit exactly what the manufacturer intended for the vehicle. This way, you aren’t spending money servicing items that are not due at your particular mileage. With their Oil Change Special, you get your oil filter replaced, all fluids topped off, tires checked and a general inspection of under the hood and under the car. You’ll also find great prices on complete Brake Services. So, for your next repair or maintenance appointment, give Keep

It New Auto Service a call. Experience the difference…you’ll be glad you did! Testimonials My car is running great! You did a super job and thanks again for fixing my front bumper! You also saved us some $$$ by knowing where to get a side mirror for my wife’s car, without having to go to a dealer. You’re very much appreciated! – M. Wheeler I have taken my car in twice now to Keep It New Auto Service. Linn and Mike are the BEST! In the 40 years I’ve been driving and having cars repaired I have never been to a shop that has treated me with such honesty. My AC went out on a hot day. I took it in and it was a minor adjustment. They could have told me just about anything and I would have paid it. But Linn fixed the problem in a few minutes and didn’t even want to charge me. Another time I took my car in for a “check-up”. He told me what I should do now, and a couple of items I should take care of down the line. No big sales job. Honesty and professionalism. I absolutely love these guys. My husband and I (along with all our neighbors now) wouldn’t go anywhere else for car repair. And, by the way, priced right. -- Sheila Keep It New Auto Service is located at 550 Harvest Park Drive in Brentwood. They can be contacted at 925-626-7960. Visit their website at www.keepitnewautoservice.com.

July 2011

Keep It New Auto Service The Monthly Grapevine is pleased to announce this month’s Pick of the Vine…Keep It New Auto Service. For most every repair or maintenance item your car may need, Keep It New Auto Service is your one stop shop. Owner, Linn Small has been in the automotive industry for 22 years and prides himself on, not only his expertise, but also the fact that his shop is different. Believing that integrity is worth more than the bottom line, Linn and his crew will work hard to get your car back on the road, with you knowing what was wrong with your vehicle and how it was repaired—all delivered with no secrets or surprises. In other words, you can be sure your car is in great hands when you take it to Keep It New Auto!

The CEO Can you say GREEN? Summer is officially here and it’s the perfect time to think about ways to reduce your environmental impact. From food and shopping to traveling and entertainment, we’ve got you covered with tips for going green this summer

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

Opt for locally grown and/or organic produce, avoid foods produced or raised on factory farms or with chemicals and nasty preservatives. Or go a step further and go the vegetarian route, which, is an excellent health and culinary choice in its environmental benefits. Opt for a “staycation” over a vacation. Avoid airports, congested roads, and crowded resorts. Instead, have a family “staycation” - a vacation without leaving your home. You don’t need to travel far to find good summertime entertainment. In the warmer months, local festivals, neighborhood art shows, and movies or music in the park abound. Take advantage of your neighborhood’s offerings. Get outside and save electricity. Spend time away from the TV and computer, 6

Celebrity Millennium Greetings in July and can you believe summer is almost half way over? We have been featuring Celebrity Cruises for the last several issues and this one is no exception. Many of you have been looking for a short, close to home cruise that does not involve Mexico and this is THE ONE for you. The Celebrity Millennium sails for 5 days from San Diego to Vancouver on May 27, 2012 and visits San Francisco and Victoria with 2 lovely at sea days as well. It ends in Vancouver on June 1st, which is Friday night. That gives you a golden opportunity to stay the weekend in Vancouver and see just what Vancouver has to offer you in the way of fun, shopping, eating and otherwise just good old fashioned R & R. A balcony room on this cruise is only $756.14 with an ocean view room at $606.14 and if you want an inside room without a window it’s only $506.14. All

rates are per person and the deposit to secure your space on board is only $200 per stateroom. Of course we’ll be only too happy to extend your holiday in Vancouver for one or 2 nights and you will not be disappointed. So come Live your Celebrity Life on board the Millennium and then live the life of a Canadian for a weekend.

Last month, we started reporting about living your Celebrity Life and we do have a couple more things to bring to your attention. We’re sure that after all of this attention to Celebrity Cruise you will want to have your own on board experience and cruise with Celebrity.

Play up your vacation for all it’s worth. If you’re passionate about having fun, we have an engaging arsenal of activities designed to tickle your funny bone and keep you on your toes to challenge your competitive spirit.

WHO’S BEEN SNOOPED?

see why so many professionals in the industry choose PSTG for their training.

Here Comes the Heat!

Their vision to revolutionize the delivery and incorporation of the critical elements of a career in Public Safety at local, state, national and global level allows PSTG to become part of the strategic alliance between the professional and its public. As many Americans would agree, the need for public safety in our nation is growing. With this in mind, crucial training and continuing education is an absolute must for the benefit of the public and the emergency responder as well, no matter what their title or position in the agency.

With a clear sky above and the local corn growing a foot in the last few days, finally summer is on its way. In spite of the rain, the local farmers made it through cherry season and the corn growers were putting their seeds in the ground as soon as the ground was somewhat dry. Now, the sun is finally showing its true color--hot! What a great time to check in on a local business that can help protect us from the dangers of the summer sun. PSTG, Public Safety Training Group, is a local business that provides education to emergency responders. When I pulled up their website at www.pstgonline.com, I was amazed at how many courses they offer. When I first got this assignment, I thought it was just for firefighters and EMT’s. But, their mission is to become a world-class leader in career preparation, in-service training and career development to members of the fire service, law enforcement, emergency medical services and industrial safety fields. As I looked through the many courses, I could clearly

The team at PSTG includes five leaders in the industry with over 100 years of collective dedicated years in public safety. Their accolades and certifications are too many to list, however they can be found on their website. I think the part I liked best about my research of PSTG is how dedicated they are to giving the professional all the necessary tools they need to keep our public safe in any situation. Having been around law enforcement for many years, I can certainly appreciate the extensive training and education offered to officers and their fellow firefighters, especially when it can save their lives. The courses offered include Command Courses, Emergency Medical Courses,

TIMELY FEATURE

deteriorate or are lost in most diets focused on ‘weight’ loss.”

fat calculator designed by the U.S. Navy, available at www.turbocharged.us.com.

Burning Fat Matters More Than Losing Weight

The problem starts with how we are all told to measure success. A standard weight measuring scale gives little information. Someone can actually be very lean with a well-hydrated and muscular body, yet they may weigh in at a higher number than someone of the same height that is actually fatter. After all, muscle is denser than fat.

The primary reason for excess fat is often improper diet along and a lack of activity. Stress complicates things further by triggering release of the hormone cortisol that causes the liver to produce excess sugar. The excess sugar triggers hunger, so we’re more likely to eat more when stressed and, as a result, gain more fat.

When it comes to losing weight, most Americans are impatient, seeking to shed pounds as quickly as possible. But many traditional diet and exercise plans often lead to disappointment and frustration -and can even make you less healthy. The problem may stem from the fact that basically every diet tells us we need to lose weight. But for most people, it’s more important to focus on ways to accelerate fat loss, rather than weight loss. “Many conventional diets and popular exercise routines can actually make you fatter and more frustrated,” say Dian Griesel, co-author with her brother Tom Griesel of the new diet and fitness book “TurboCharged.” “The only thing any of us wants to lose is excess body fat, not our bones, muscle, water or other essentials. Yet, these are what typically

“Throw away your traditional scale,” says Tom Griesel. “The only relevant measurement is your body fat percentage. This can be easily calculated with a neck and waist measurement for men, and neck, waist and hip measurements for women.” Interestingly, even if you are not overweight, a waist measurement of over 33 inches, regardless of your weight, increases health risks like cardiovascular disease. A healthy lean male should have a body fat percentage in the 8 to 18 percent range, and a healthy female between 16 and 24 percent. The younger you are, the lower the acceptable healthy range. To find out your body fat percentage, enter your measurements into the free body

The Griesels recommend a diet consisting of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, meats and fish. They also suggest you gradually increase your overall activity level. Walking is a great way to reduce fat and improve your overall health, but so is cleaning your home, chasing your kids, washing your car or gardening. Activity is activity, whether you call it exercise, running errands or having fun. The most important thing is that you put together a plan that’s best for you -- one that helps you lose fat, not muscle, while living a fuller, more active life.

FOR YOUR DENTAL HEALTH

quickly and therefore can develop problems pretty quickly too.

Early Orthodontic Treatment and the Benefits Bones and muscles form the framework of the face. Either genetics or environmental factors may have an influence on the development of the child’s jaw and muscles. For example, the child may have inherited a small jaw from one parent and large teeth from the other. Or, the child might suck his or her thumb, have breathing problems, or large adenoid glands, which could influence the growth of the jaw and the face muscles. When the bones, muscles, and teeth work well together, they create a comfortable, stable bite and a pleasing appearance. When the bones and muscles grow improperly the teeth do not fit together well which can cause an unbalanced profile and other problems. In a young child, bones and muscles grow

There are some signs that early orthodontic treatment may be necessary due to jaw and muscle problems. In many children the upper jaw is large or too forward or the lower jaw is too far back or small, causing an increased overbite. In some children, the upper jaw is too small or too far back or the lower jaw is too forward, causing an underbite. Sometimes, the upper jaw is not wide enough so the upper teeth may fit inside lower teeth causing a crossbite. In some cases, the jaw is not big enough to accommodate the developing teeth, causing crowding or the upper jaw is too short, causing a deep bite. Some children have a strong tongue thrusting habit or thumb sucking habit, causing an open bite. Between the ages of 5 and 10, some permanent teeth have already appeared and during this time the bones and muscles are growing rapidly. This is when the dentist can influence their growth in the right direction to get the best possible bite and pleasing appearance for the child, and to minimize the child from getting

jaw surgery later. Early treatment may last a year or longer. Later, a second phase of full braces may be needed after all the permanent teeth appear. Therefore, early treatment enhances self esteem by improving the child’s appearance, preventing severe bite problems in the future and minimizing removal of permanent teeth in the future as well. Therefore, it is very important to get children evaluated by the dentist regularly for the regular checkups to make sure if they need early orthodontic treatment to ensure a harmonious development of both the jaw and the teeth.

PACIFIC FUNDING GROUP

for home purchases in the San Diego area. This is, in fact, the case and after speaking with a local lender, Mrs. Karen Bates who is the owner and founder of Military Home Programs, Inc. and, in fact, served eight years in the military herself as an Air Traffic Controller, I once again became excited about VA loans. According to Mrs. Bates, “The beauty of it is, VA has been doing zero down purchases for eligible buyers since 1944…it is exciting to help our military families fulfill their dreams of owning a home.”

VA Financing On my recent trip to San Diego I learned a lot about the city itself and the history it holds… Once dubbed a “Navy town,” San Diego is now the second largest city in California with approximately one fourth of its total employment coming by way of the military. Service jobs are a plenty as nearly one third of the entire U.S. Naval Pacific Fleet is home ported in San Diego Bay, and even more importantly, the city itself is proud of the men and women who serve their country. A prime example of this fact is the USS Midway; the longest serving carrier in the U.S. Navy which now continues its service as an interactive museum, tribute and education center. Not only that but San Diego also plays host to the yearly MCAS Miramar Air Show, the largest air show in the country!

Unfortunately, based on the many bank owned and short-sale transactions in the Brentwood area VA financing has more or less been put on the back burner. Banks do not like to accept VA offers as many lenders have never touched a VA loan which makes deals sink faster than...I’ll let you finish your own Navy analogy. As a potential veteran buyer however – assuming you find the right lender – VA loans are one of the biggest benefits out there for you; there is no down-payment required and no mortgage insurance to pay. You’ll receive true 100% financing (again without having to pay any mortgage insurance) and the seller is required by law to credit you for closing costs! A somewhat forgotten about option that is truly beneficial to any would be veteran

Being so heavily intertwined with the military, simple cause and effect would only rationalize the heavy use of VA financing

purchasers; I truly hope to see more VA purchases come across my desk again sooner than later. So whether you spend this 4th of July in San Diego, CA, Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York City for Nathan’s Annual Hot Dog eating contest, on the Capitol lawn in Washington, D.C., with the other half million that annually attend “A Capital Fourth” concert and firework show, or with family enjoying a BBQ, please never forget the true reason for celebration – our Independence. An Independence the brave men and women of our Armed Forces protect each and every day! Thank all of you for all that you do.

PRUDENTIAL REALTY

A Place to Call Your Own The market is ripe for buyers right now. Interest rates are still at record lows and so are prices. So, now more than ever, you should be telling your landlord goodbye and saying hello to your dream home. However, buying a home is such a large investment, possibly the largest purchase you’ll make. So, careful deliberation should be made when deciding which home is right for you. Where do I want to live? How large a house do I want and/ or need? How many bedrooms? What kind of yard and how large? As a homeowner, you have the benefit of security and stability, as well as the freedom to decorate and remodel. You can redo your kitchen, build a deck, put in a swimming pool, or add a playroom for the kids and make your house a home.

if you’re not able right now then you can create and action plan to build your credit score and decrease your debt and get on the road to ownership. Feel free to give me a call to get a referral to a qualified lender.

Instead of paying your landlord’s mortgage, you can build equity for yourself and get the tax benefit as well. With each monthly mortgage payment, you’ll own more and more of your home and when you finish paying off the mortgage, every dollar your home is worth is yours.

When you own a home, your neighborhood becomes an important part of your life. There’s a greater incentive to get involved in things like local government, your children’s school or the youth soccer league. In addition, you’ll meet people who share common interests.

Of course, the single most asked question I am asked is “Can I afford to buy a house?” One tool you can use is a payment calculator to compare the costs of renting and buying. You can find this on my website under calculator.

Although homeownership has its benefits, make sure it’s the right fit for you depending on your financial and personal situations. Give me a call and discuss the benefits of renting verses owning.

Use a website like Realtor.com to look for listings or visit www.myeastcounty. com and start your search there. You can browse MLS listings or sign up for automatic notifications of homes that fit your criteria. Of course, one of the first steps is to get qualified. This will enable you to have an accurate view of the costs and your options. If your credit rating is in need of repair, or you have a high debt to earnings ratio, an FHA loan or VA loan, if you qualify, can be a great option. And

Re-screening Window Frames If insects are invading your home, it could be that your window screens are in need of repair. If the screen frame, usually made of wood or metal, is in good shape there is no need for replacement of the entire unit; simply re-screen the frame. When re-screening, instead of using ordinary metal or vinyl material, consider a dense vinyl mesh. This material will not only keep out bugs but will also prevent a significant amount of heat from the sun from entering your home. An average-size screen will take only about 15 minutes for a do-it-yourselfer, with a cost under $5. For a screen with an aluminum frame, you’ll need a pair of needle-nose pliers, a razor knife with a sharp blade and a spline installation tool or spline roller, which looks like a pizza cutter.

In most aluminum-framed screens, the screen material is held in place by a vinyl bead called spline which is inserted into a channel that runs the entire perimeter of the frame. You need to remove the existing spline in order to remove the old screen material and install the new screen material. Use the needle-nose pliers to grasp one end of the spline, usually found at a corner, and peel it back until reaching the other end. The spline generally is installed in one piece, but due to aging may have to be removed in pieces. Once the spline has been removed, simply peel back the old screen and dispose of it and the spline. To install the new screen, cut a piece of vinyl screen material approximately two or three inches longer than the frame in both directions. Next lay the screen over the frame and, starting at a corner, insert one end of the new spline into the channel. Once the spline has been started with a steady downward pressure, use the spline roller to pack the remaining spline in one continuous piece around the entire perimeter of the frame. When you reach the corner where you began, use a razor knife to carefully trim

any excess spline. Again, with the razor knife, trim the excess screen material at the joint where the spline meets the aluminum frame. The process for wood is much the same, with a few exceptions. First, while some wood frames have channels like aluminum ones, others do not. Those with channels are handled much like their aluminum counterparts, generally with the addition of a small piece of wood trim to conceal the channel. Wood frames with no channel rely on staples rather than spline for strength. Once the screen material is stapled into place at the perimeter, the staples should be concealed with a small piece of wood trim. After installing the trim with small finish nails, use a razor knife to trim the excess. And, that’s all there is to it.

can use when taking your dog outside for a walk, short romp around the park, or whenever your pet goes outside.

Summer Pet Tips With the weather warming up, our pets and ourselves will spend more time outside. We need to be diligent in protecting our pets from the heat and sun. Like us, they are prone to heatstroke, sunburn, dehydration, and skin cancers but with a few tips our pets can enjoy summer too! 1: Some dogs and cats can get sunburned on their ears, nose, and back if they are light colored or hairless. Limit their exposure to sunshine and keep them inside on very hot, sunny days. Your vet may also recommend a type of pet approved sunscreen for your pet that you

2: Never leave your pet in the car while you run inside a store. Even with the windows open, a car can heat up to a temperature that can be fatal to your pet. Cracking the windows is not enough. Cars heat up so quickly and lose all that nice cool A/C in a matter of minutes. 3: Watch out for hot pavement and hot sand. On sunny days, the ground heats up and can burn the pads of your pet’s feet. If possible, avoid walking your dog on these surfaces for long periods of time. Keep your cat inside on hot days so he doesn’t get hot feet or sunburned. If you live somewhere where grassy areas aren’t nearby, you can talk to your vet about a few products on the market that can protect your dog’s feet. There are boots that are usually used

for winter walks to protect from rock salt and ice and there are coatings that can be applied to the paws that create a breathable layer over your pet’s paws to protect them from the hot pavements. 4: Long haired breeds may need a summer cut or a shave. Never shave a pet down to the skin as they need some fur to protect them from the sun, but a shave that leaves about an inch or more can help them stay cool, keep from getting tangles, and make grooming easier. 5: Always carry water when going out so your pet can take a drink while out and about. You don’t want your dog to overheat or become dehydrated. Trips to the dog park should be done in the evenings or early mornings when it’s still a few degrees cooler than it was mid day.

TIMELY FEATURE

Keep Your Car Running Cool as Summer Travel Heats Up It’s hot outside, which means summer is here! During the summer many of our TirePro Plus customers make their annual pilgrimage to their favorite summer vacation destinations. Pack yourself and your family into the car and head out onto the open road, but remember to also get your automobile ready for the getaway. Review your automobile’s basic maintenance needs to ensure that your car is in tip-top shape. Don’t forget to test your vehicle’s coolant levels. Also, do not neglect the condition of the engine hoses. Engine hoses are the least strong structural element on an engine’s cooling system. Engine hoses are made up of flexible rubber, which absorbs any movements between the radiator and the engine. Not only are your engine’s hoses made to resist the greatest extremes of heat and cold, but they are also designed to transport coolant under high pressure.

Electrochemical degradation (ECD) is the main origin of hose failure and is not easily noticeable. ECD afflicts hoses from the inside out, resulting in little cracks in the hose lining. Acids and impurities from the liquid coolant can potentially weaken the yarn, which reinforces the hose. Eventually, it is possible for little pinholes to germinate in the hose. If the case is severe enough, it is also possible for the hose to break under the stress of engine heat, pressure, and constant flexing.

the engine hose feels firm but at the same time pliable, then it is in satisfactory working condition. If the hose is soft and/ or mushy, then ECD might have already taken over.

We encourage you take a little time to perform some basic hose maintenance. If you do, you can avoid possible hose deterioration:

- Unclean coolant contributes to ECD. Flush and replace the engine’s coolant according to the vehicle’s owner’s manual.

- Check the coolant-recovery tank frequently to guarantee proper fluid level. All coolant-recovery tanks have marker lines on them to indicate the required fill level for hot and cold engine temperatures. If the coolant-recovery tank continues to be low after recurrent fillings, a leak is likely the issue. If a coolant leak exists, you may also note white, light green, or pink coolant residue stripes on or around the engine. - ECD happens mostly around the engine hose clamps. To check for ECD: when the engine is cool, squeeze each hose between your thumb and forefinger. If
