Water sports and fireworks are two of the biggest pastimes for summertime, and these are both linked to numerous deaths and injuries each year. Be a safe swimmer by never swimming alone and make sure that the kids’ water play is adequately supervised at all times. Use alcohol responsibly and arrange a designated driver. Remember also that alcohol and swimming can be as dangerous as drinking and driving.

PRODUCT OF BLUEWATER PUBLISHING LLC

Apply sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher both before and during any outdoor activity. And reapply especially after being in the water. Even for those with darker skin, Ultraviolet rays from the sun can cause both premature aging and skin cancer. Drink plenty of water to avoid heat exhaustion and/or heat stroke and remember that alcohol consumption can also promote dehydration and increase risk.

MJ’s Downtown Cafe & Bakery It’s Saturday morning and you find yourself craving some serious breakfast. Look no further than downtown Brentwood and the steaming cup of coffee logo on the front window. You’ve found MJ’s Downtown Café and Bakery. And the best part? Although it IS the perfect spot for breakfast (which is served all day), it’s also a great place for lunch and they are open every day. If there is a line of customers waiting outside for the next available table, don’t be deterred! Rest assured, the line moves quickly and you’ll be seated promptly by one of the many charming and friendly members of the staff. Here, it seems that everyone carries a fresh pot of coffee, including decaf, and always stops at every table even if they aren’t your server. The décor is bright and cheerful and there is plenty of room to sit without backing your chair into the people sitting next to you. MJ’s owner’s, Jennifer and Monica have been working together in the restaurant industry for more than 20 years. After mastering their kitchen skills and learning to provide quality service to restaurant patrons, they opened MJ’s

in 2010 with a vision of providing the kinds of food they, themselves like to eat along with great service and good old-fashioned hospitality. They are proud to offer tasty food, made from the freshest ingredients, devoid of processed products and assemblyline food production, giving you that fresh, homemade quality in every bite. Jennifer and Monica are committed to making sure MJ’s is a place where you can feel at home - comfortable, relaxed and ready to enjoy a great-tasting meal with your family and friends.

In addition, the restaurant is perfect for parties and events with 25 to 75 guests. There is a full-range of customizable menu items to choose from. Just let them know what you need and they are happy to accommodate. And don’t forget about MJ’s when you’re having a party at your house or another outside venue. They can handle catering for birthday parties, baby showers and bridal showers, group parties and even weddings.

Another great reason to dine at MJ’s is that if you don’t find what you want, servers are happy to customize the menu to make sure you leave satisfied. All meals are prepared with the freshest ingredients and great-tasting family favorites, as well as innovative new dishes that will leave you satisfied and looking forward to your next visit. Omelets are prepared on a flat grill, not in a pan, so they are BIG. They’re served with golden fried hash browns and your choice of toast. Or choose a stack of hot steaming pancakes or the famous warm Colossal Cinnamon Roll. At lunchtime, enjoy a burger made from fresh-ground Angus chuck for maximum run down your hand juiciness. Or try one of their entrée salads, perhaps The Classic Shrimp or Dungeness Crab Louis. The classic comfort food and a great kid’s menu ensure something for everyone at MJ’s.

MJ’s Downtown Cafe & Bakery is

located at 655 First Street in Brentwood. They can be contacted at 925-684-7242 or visit them at www.mjsdowntowncafe.com.

July 2012

MJ’s Downtown Cafe & Bakery For it’s good old-fashion quality customer service, The Monthly Grapevine is pleased to announce this month’s Pick of the Vine, MJ’s Downtown Café & Bakery. Since 2010, owners Jennifer and Monica have been serving up the kind of food they, themselves like to eat – tasty and made from the freshest quality ingredients. The breakfast and lunch menu, the daily specials and all their baked goods are created from their own recipes that they have been perfecting for years. Breakfast is served all day and there’s also a lunch menu and a great kid’s selection. In addition, the restaurant can be booked for parties and events and they also provide catering services for outside events. If you haven’t tried MJ’s, stop on by and visit them at their Historic Downtown Brentwood location. If you’ve already had the pleasure of eating here, it’s time for another visit to relax, feel at home and enjoy your meal!

WHO’S BEEN SNOOPED?

The Artistry of Gerry Here it is, the first day of summer. As you travel through East Contra Costa County, you can see this year’s crops popping up through the ground. From our famous Brentwood Sweet Corn to the dark green leaves of the local tomatoes, the manicured rich soil of our agricultural core is at its best. Nestled within the farmlands, the City of Brentwood can be commended for their beautiful landscaped streets and parks, including the new City Park. With Mother Nature shining bright from the ground, it is a perfect time to look in on a local business that can extend that appreciation for the beauty of the bloom right to your front door. When I received this assignment, I was thrilled to get the opportunity to tell our readers about a woman I have admired for well over twenty years. Gerry Stanton, from Flowers by Gerry, is a master in her trade. For those that have known her for years, they can tell you each time she creates, it is a masterpiece. Located on the shores of the Delta at 4601 Orwood Road

just past Orwood Resort, you can find the most unique florist in the industry. Once you walk in her front door, you know you are next to nature and all its beauty. Gerry doesn’t just make flower arrangements; she designs individual creation with years of experience and love. She has a large inventory of fresh flowers, tropicals, live plants, European dish gardens, contemporary and traditional arrangements, high style floral, silk arrangements, gourmet fruit baskets, candles and everything you need for weddings and funerals. For those of us who have been fortunate enough to have received a special delivery from Gerry, we can attest to the reaction of “Oh my, those are beautiful!” as they are brought through the door. No matter how large or small the arrangement, it always appears to have been growing right from the ground by Mother Nature herself. I have been referring customers to Gerry for years and actually been present when she comes to set up for garden weddings. It is like watching a magician pull things together right before your eyes. She and her staff maintain a high expectation of excellence of their work and it’s clearly evident with the end result. For any bride to be, you can rest assured that from your first conversation to the time you throw your bouquet, you are in good hands and

the floral part of you event will be flawless and a memorable part of your day. As you read this article, I encourage you to find Gerry’s ad in the Monthly Grapevine and go to her website to discover the wonderful world of Flowers by Gerry. From the ease of online shopping to setting up an account for all your floral needs, you will find that this is just another asset of her business. You can call anytime and receive excellent customer service on the phone with one of her qualified staff or Gerry herself as she is in the midst of creating another masterpiece. Her knowledge is endless, her ability to design from you vision a Godsend and your relationship from day one, priceless. When asked about her business, she will say we do unique floral designs with distinction and quality. To that I say, “I take pictures of everything I have ever received from you and keep them as treasures.” So, Gerry, this secret shopper gives you a dozen red roses for being the best in the business and bringing the beauty of nature to our homes and our lives. Who will be snooped next? It could be you!

Flowers by Gerry is located at 4601

Orwood Road in Brentwood. They can be contacted at 925-634-1593 or visit them at www.flowersbygerry.com.

HEALTH

FOR YOUR DENTAL HEALTH

Melanoma Melanoma is a malignant cancer of the melanocytes or the dark pigmented cells. Although melanoma accounts for only 5 percent of all skin cancers, it is the cause of three times as many deaths as non-melanoma cancers. The incidence of malignant melanoma has been increasing at the rate of 5 to 7 percent annually in the United States for the past several years. The current lifetime risk of developing melanoma is estimated to be 1.97 percent or one in 51 people. The risk factors are genetic pre-disposition, fair skin, blue or green eyes, red or blond hair and freckles, immunosuppression and presence of having multiple nevi and also a family predisposition of having a history of melanoma. Other

risk factors include having a history of sunburns because of sever exposure to sun and frequent use of tanning beds. Prevention should be aimed at minimizing the modifiable factors by means of using sunblock and protective clothing and avoidance of peak exposure to UV light and tanning beds. Melanomas mostly occur on the skin, which is about 91.2 percent of them. Of these melanomas, almost 25 percent occur in the head and neck region, 40 percent on the hands and legs and the rest on the trunk. Sometimes melanomas can affect the eyes and the mouth as well. Significant melanomas develop within preexisting pigmented lesions. The appearance of skin melanomas vary greatly from patient to patient. It could appear like a black, blue, brown or even a red pigment and could be a flat or a raised thickening of the skin or look like a large fungating mass. Therefore, it is very important to have these areas examined as soon as possible and get treated appropriately,

depending on the extent of the spread of the cancerous growth. Therefore, when you get your regular checkup at the dentist, he or she will check and evaluate the head and the neck areas. The dentist will suggest early treatment if there are any suspicious lesions and get you promptly to the physician for the necessary treatment. Early detection and treatment are critical to the overall survival of the patient with melanoma. Apollo Dental Care is the dental office of Dr. Sue Padavettan D.D.S.

PRUDENTIAL REALTY

Multiple Offers are Here Since around the February 2012 thaw, buyers confidence appears to have increased and the housing market has been heating up. This, coupled with very low inventory of homes for sale, has produced a hot market for sellers. Listings that are priced reasonably and are in relative good condition are seeing multiple offers. Homes that are turn key such as investor flips or equity sales have had over 60 offers. So what is a buyer to do? Step one is get educated on the market, the payment and loan you are comfortable with and thereby know what your top price is. It is very important that when opportunity knocks you are ready to open the door. Start shopping for a home now. Search the internet, work with aragent to start touring homes so you become familiar with the market and are prepared to offer market value,

or slightly higher, when the right home for you comes on the market. I highly recommend working with a buyer’s agent to fully represent your best interests. My advice on value is to not get too focused on the listing price. Unlike a retail store, the asking price is not always representative of the value of the home or even what price the owner is necessarily looking for. This may apply to bank owned, short sale and even investor flips, which may be under priced, possibly to garner multiple offers and drive the price up through a “bidding war�. However they can also be overpriced for a variety of reasons. I have also seen the use of marketing auctions on occasion whereby the home is listed at a very low starting price to generate interest. However, they traditionally have a reserve price which is a secret minimum price that needs to be met by the bidders before the seller is obligated to accept an offer. This reserve price is usually at or above fair market value. So what is a buyer to do? First of all do not give up hope. Next, keep watch

and when a home that fits your needs becomes available, jump on it! Make an offer based on the value of the home to you. Focus on your needs and remember prices are at historic lows so the potential for equity in the long run is great. If you look at a few thousand dollars difference over 30 years it may put it in perspective. Keep your offer clean; consider making the offer “as-is�. This does not mean you waive your rights of inspections, it simply represents that you do not expect the seller to perform any repairs, which will tend to make your offer more desirable than a buyer that may ask for repairs. In my experience, when it is meant to be it will happen. Call today to get started. As always, feel free to contact me for more information.

ON THE HOUSE

level is all we need to know to fashion one of your own.

Getting Things Straight With Levels Romans built the Coliseum, Greeks the Pantheon, Egyptians the Pyramids. And, all this was accomplished without the help of modern tools or construction equipment. Granted, construction projects were measured in generations rather than months or years, but the quality of workmanship was impeccable – and accurate.

First, find a curved tube, preferably one that you can see through – although a solid tube works as well. Fill it with water and, presto, you have a level. No matter how you hold it, as long as you don’t let the water spill out, the water level at both ends of the tube will always be the same. Lower both ends of the tube until the water at each end is at the very mouth of the tube. The mouths at each end of the tube are at exactly the same height. From this point a pencil mark can be made at each end and a string line can be stretched creating a perfectly level reference point from which to work.

Did you ever wonder how the ancients got things straight without surveyor’s equipment or a fancy steel or woodframe level? Fact is, they did have levels. Not as we know them today, but levels nonetheless. The kind that was used to build the Pyramids is still being used by many folks in construction today. Knowing that water finds its own

To demonstrate that your level works, hold the curved tube filled with water against a wall. Mark the exact height of the water at each end of the tube. Scribe a pencil line across the two marks. A borrowed level will verify that your improvised one did the job. And you aren’t limited to a curved tube. You also can make your level out of a

hose. A clear one is the easiest to use. It doesn’t make any difference how far apart the ends of the hose are, how the hose lies on the ground or how many coils, knots or curls are in it. The water at one end of the hose will be the same height as the water at the other end of the hose. What’s a level good for? Hanging a picture, installing a cabinet or building a redwood deck are examples. Even a pitched roof has to begin at some point that is level. Want to check the floor at the front of your house to see if it is the same height as the floor at the back of your house? You can’t do that with a conventional level or your PDA’s “Level” app. For more home improvement tips and information, visit our web site at www. onthehouse.com or call our listener hot line 24/7 at 1-800-737-2474 (ext 59).
