Simplify The Technology In Your Life PRESIDENT

Your family’s pockets, purses and backpacks are probably packed with gadgets, as technology expands into all aspects of your home and work life.

Karen Spann CTO

Jim Spann

It seems like every device is turning into a mini-computer that texts, talks, syncs and computes. But do we really need every device to do everything?

WE’VE The Monthly Grapevine® M OVED 1210 Central Blvd., Suite 111 Brentwood, CA 94513 Available in Person Monday 9am - 4:30pm Tuesday - Thursday 9am - 5pm Friday by Appointment Main Office: 925.634.0880 Fax: 925.634.7822 Write us at: info@monthlygrapevine.com 24/7 at www.monthlygrapevine.com

Simplifying the technology in your life can make you more serene and even more productive. Go Basic - Most people use computers for Web surfing, word processing and e-mailing. So why get one with the latest feature film-making software? A basic desktop should suffice, without expensive processing chips and the bells and whistles needed for cutting-edge video. Or be thrifty and trendy by buying a tiny netbook for less than $300. Consider utility software that keeps computers running smoothly. There are several programs from brands like Norton, McAfee and others that keep your hard drive clean and running fast. Calling All Cell Phones! - Unless you’re a text-crazed teenager or senior executive, why choose a cell phone with more features than your laptop? Select a phone that does one thing really well - make phone calls! Choose a phone with a simple display and only those buttons you really need, such as dedicated volume controls. And if you’ll be traveling, consider a simple global phone.

The Monthly Grapevine

Open Sesame - From online banking to email, multiple passwords guard against identity theft. It’s even better to remember them all. Consider selecting passwords thematically: Perhaps all your financial accounts should use variations of your favorite beer, or all e-mail accounts should use your pet’s name. Coordinate Gadgets - Do you really need an mp3 player, camera, netbook, e-reader, and home PC? Make sure your gadgets don’t overlap in function. You may even help the environment, since gadgets are often less eco-friendly than paper and pen. Start now and you’ll be on your way to simple serenity. Sincerely,

Manuel Iglesias The Iglesias family has been doing concrete work for many years. Licensed since 2006 and with 35+ years of experience, Manuel Iglesias decided to start his own business, Manuel Iglesias Concrete. Manuel says he loves the industry, mainly because he grew up doing it. In addition, “Being able to experience a trade where I can look back and see the art & beauty of the work is very important to me. Everywhere I look, I can see something I’ve worked on,” says Manuel. Whatever your concrete needs are, Manuel Iglesias Concrete can build your dreams. From patios, walkways, retaining walls and foundations to stamped concrete, steps, overlayments and concrete staining & sealing, Manuel Iglesias will create your vision beautifully. Because of the slow economic recovery, Manuel tells us they’ve tried to keep their costs low. Whenever they can, they add extra details, such as diamond joint patterns, bands, etc. at no extra cost to the client. They listen to what their customers want in a design and also specialize in designing

concrete if the client isn’t exactly sure what they want. In addition, they take advantage of all seminars and training classes to continually learn more about their industry. Recently, they began expanding their field of work to include other custom details like overlaying, pavers and anything that will help them keep up with the changing field and hardscape designs. Laurie Iglesias, Manuel’s wife, runs the office and tells us about a small job they had last year where the client purchased a gazebo and needed a small octagon shaped pad for it. They couldn’t afford much, so Manuel was able to help them out with cost and came up with a beautiful leaf design that turned into a gorgeous patio for their gazebo. “It made the client very happy and that is what I love most about the work my husband does,” says Laurie. Testimonials Manuel, Greg and their crew went above and beyond in delivering the foundation we needed. My framer has told me over and over that our slab is one of the truest he’s built on. Manuel has built a successful and professional business by being honest, straight forward and friendly. I recommend you talk to Manuel if you’re looking for a concrete contractor.—Kevin P., Moraga

When faced with having a great amount of cement work to be done, including a driveway, we did a fair amount of research and we knew we placed our trust in the right hands with Manuel Iglesias. The work was completed better than expected and the result was a very high quality, detailed and very artistic job. We love it and everyone has only positive things to say about it. – O. & H., Oakley From the very beginning of the process to the very end these guys were absolutely the best! I delayed the bid for 6-8 months, no problem. Everyone on the crew from the foreman to guys pushing wheel barrels was professional and polite. Each day they cleaned up the site and swept the driveway and work area. The final product was just outstanding!! I will definitely recommend and use this company again.—Christopher B., Brentwood We have had Manuel out to the house four times. His crew works neatly and efficiently. Manuel listened to what we wanted and added some design features of his own to make the work unique. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a new patio to a new fence--Ed H., Brentwood, CA Manuel Iglesias Concrete can be contacted at 925-679-3969 or visit www.manueliglesiasconcrete.com

TRAVEL TIME

This Month We Ask If You Have Ever Been To Scotland? We are on the road again for Labor Day Weekend and this is our 6th year of participation in the annual Scottish Gathering in Pleasanton. The Caledonian Club of San Francisco’s Scottish Gathering and Games are the largest in the U.S. and, in some years, the largest in the world. It is not unusual to have more than 25 pipe bands at the event, plus hundreds of athletes, dancers and other participants. The Caledonian Club of San Francisco was founded in 1866, a year after the end of the Civil War, and its inaugural Scottish Gathering and Games, a family picnic with athletic contests, was held in a field at 12th and Market Streets in San Francisco on Thanksgiving Day 1866. The San Francisco earthquake of 1906 could not stop the Scottish Games from going on, nor could two world wars or

past few generations, Highland Games have evolved into ticketed festivals. Games are held throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and elsewhere.

Long before colonists began to settle the New World, Scotland had a lengthy history and culture. In Scotland, Heavy Athletics Events were already being held at least 1,000 years ago! Historians believe that some of the Heavy Events originated during Druid times. Heavy Events began as tests of strength and conditioning for Scottish troops. A tree trunk would be made into a caber and tossed by the strongest military men. Smooth rocks from river beds would be heaved for distance. Lead weights would be tossed underhand over a bar more than twice as high as the athlete. The competitor who accumulated the most points from the contests would be the Heavy Events Champion. Now, Highland Games are held annually wherever there are enough Scots to produce an event; it is a traditional method of passing Scottish culture from generation to generation. During the

You should know that this event in Pleasanton is the largest annual gathering in America and, in addition to games, there are many vendors that will be happy to sell you Scottish wares, jewelry, food and clothing. It is held at the Alameda County Fairgrounds on Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day Weekend with hours of 9 to 6 both days. Come see both Bill and Fred at the main gate to the right just after you enter. We’ll have lots for you to see about travel in Scotland, The British Isles and, of course, anywhere you want to GETAWAY FROM YOUR EVERYDAY. See you at the gathering and maybe can a kilt be in your future or perhaps a dance or two?

WHO’S BEEN SNOOPED?

Helping One Beat at a Time The outside temperatures have reached triple digits, the corn trailers are making daily trips throughout the farmlands, and another Cornfest is done. One week following the 4th of July, this annual civic celebration brings guests from all the surrounding counties with three days of fun and its own private fireworks show. That being said, it is also the time of year that safety becomes a number one priority, both for heat stroke and the dangers related to the fireworks. What a perfect time to look in on a local company that helps individuals or groups learn first aid safety training. CPR F.A.S.T., First Aid Safety Training, strengthening the chain of survival have partnered with Public Safety Training Group, training today’s emergency responders. They are a recognized Safety Provider of CPR, ACLS, PALS,PEPP, Preventative Health, AED, and First Aid

Training Programs and Products. CPR FAST is a full service provider offering equipment, education, medical-direction and support services necessary to implement and manage a successful Safety Program. CPR FAST offers a one stop shop for all your safety needs. After researching their website and talking with them briefly on the phone, I realized the importance of understanding what to do in case of an emergency, especially for a child. I took the time to ask my friends and family if they personally knew what to do if someone was having a heart attack, and the only ones with any CPR training were my police officer friends. NOW THAT SHOULD GET YOUR ATTENTION TOO! I am embarrassed to say, I am not sure I could save someone’s life. Please know that I intend on personally taking this course, especially since it is local and affordable. When CPR FAST was established in 2004, Kristen Helmick, owner, had the vision to provide the highest level of safety instruction to the industry. CPR FAST’s motto is to strengthen the chain of survival. They are dedicated to raising the standard of care within our communities.

Now that CPR FAST has partnered with PSTG, they can now provide to emergency responders throughout the state of California, including courses like California State Fire Marshal Courses to Firefighter Entry Level Coaching and Firefighter Promotional Courses. All the more reason to get your first aid safety training from CPR FAST. The course teaches students how to perform CPR with a barrier device on an adult, child and infant and how to operate an automatic external defibrillator in addition to basic first aid skills for medical, environmental and injury emergencies. Just imagine, you could possibly save someone’s life! So, Kristen and your entire team of professionals, the Monthly Grapevine gives you five purple hearts for “Strengthening the Chain of Survival”! This snoop personally invites all of our readers to join me in getting the education I need to be better prepared in case of an emergency. Who will be snooped next? It could be you!

FOR YOUR DENTAL HEALTH

Snoring in Children The prevalence of snoring in children ranges from 10% to 21% from 6 to 81 months. Habitual snoring is documented in17% of pediatric patients and this percentage increases in children with neurological problems or psychiatric problems. Snoring is an indication of obstructive sleep apnea. In the general population, 2-3% of children have apnea. This proportion is growing more with the increase in childhood obesity. What is apnea? Apnea in children is events lasting longer than two missed breaths and most commonly associated with some change in oxygen concentration. Snoring and mouth breathing in children were initially thought of as not harmful habits, but more recently it has been associated with these children having a higher risk of social problems, poor academic performance, decreased attention and

anxiety and depression issues. Children who snore are not likely to grow out of it and the neurocognitive and behavioral damage from snoring in children is related to the fact that their brains are still growing. Dentists have a unique role in early identification of the Sleep Disordered Breathing or SDB especially in children, as these children can have abnormal facial growth, resulting in orthodontic problems and sleep related teeth grinding, as well. Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) may create facial growth changes and these skeletal alterations can further worsen the SDB. Head and facial maturity is about 60% complete in children by the time they are 4 years of age, but the tonsils and adenoids begin to grow more in size when children are two and half years old and increase greatest in size by 6 years, causing additional airway blockage. In our body, soft tissue and muscles that cover the bone influence the pattern of bone growth. Therefore the facial muscles and the tongue tone create a framework for normal development of the nose and jaws. In children with SDB, these muscles are weak, causing narrow palate and small jaws and this amplifies the

difficulty in breathing. Mouth breathers typically have a smaller upper airway size. Sometimes when the tonsils and adenoids get extremely bigger in size, it causes more airway blockage. These children tend to have long and thin faces, along with small jaws and an open bite. The dentist is in the best position to diagnose these conditions in children. Identifying the facial growth changes early in development may help resolve the orthodontic issues by getting the proper treatment as soon as possible. Therefore, it is extremely important to get children to see the dentist early on as the impact of SDB in growing children can be serious and proper treatment can help prevent further complications.

HOME

REALTOR IN MOTION

Buyers more and more homes to choose from. This is good news. In addition to resale homes, builders locally have also begun to break ground, bringing more choices for Buyers into the market-place.

How to Buy a Home in a Seller’s Market When you decide that you’re ready to start looking for a home, you’re going to quickly find out that you’ll need to be up to the challenge. You’re not only going to have to be financially prepared with your loan approval and proof of down-payment in-hand, but you’re going to also have to be actively and aggressively vigilant in your day-to-day search if you plan to get an accepted offer on the home of your dreams. More Homes more Choices: As of August 1, 2013, the number of detached single family homes priced over $200,000 from Bay Point to Discovery Bay numbered almost 400. While that number may seem somewhat small, I will tell you that available properties in the market continue to go up each month; giving

quickly. Your Agent can then submit a valid offer to the Listing Agent for consideration. Most homes in East County right now go pending in less than 20 days. To summarize the process, you can’t compete on the streets against the speed of the internet. You need tools and tactics, becasue once a home is listed, the clock begins. If you’re prepared and connected to your Realtor and the tools they offer, your chances of having your offer on the table on time are greatly improved.

So how do you engage and make your time count? I will first tell you that driving around calling on yard-signs is way too time consuming and not the best use of your time. The best homes will go pending before you see them, and as for new homes, you should know which developments are in your price range first. The best place to shop for your home is on your Real Estate Agent’s MLS access site. You need to be connected to Web-Alerts that come to you instantly. Any other sites on-line tend to lead Buyers down blind alleys and in search of homes that aren’t for sale or have already sold. You don’t need artificial excitement on homes you can’t buy. Once you’ve located 3-7 homes that may suit you, it’s time to get with your Agent to coordinate previews. Once your Agent assembles a ground attack, you then get to see what you like most

ON THE HOUSE

A Hot Garage Is Not Cool Summer sunshine can cause the temperature in your garage to rise to three digits. Having said that, there are steps that you can take to make your garage a more comfortable and livable spaceyear round. During summer, increasing airflow in the garage is step one. This can be achieved by slightly opening the overhead door (about a foot from the floor). Slightly or fully opening the garage main door and adding a fan also can help. Insulating the ceiling is a magnificent way of cooling any room including the garage. Ceiling wallboard is not needed if paper-backed battinsulation is used. Simply install the insulation with staples (paper side down) or you can choose to keep the insulation in place with netting made

for that purpose – staples are also used to fasten the netting. We would do both. Wall insulation is another great way of staving off summer heat and keeping out winter cold. Although wall insulation does not have to be covered, wallboard (or some other paneling) should be used to encapsulate the material. Doing so will prevent pets, curious youngsters and feisty teens from tearing things out. Attaching an adjustable rollaway awning to the sunny side of the garage will create shade in the summer and allow sunlight during winter months. A deciduous tree is an inexpensive means of keeping a garage cool in the summer and warm in the winter. If possible, plant the tree so that it is located between the garage and the sun during the hottest part of the day. During summer months the leaves will shade the garage and during the cold months the bare branches will let sunlight through to warm the garage. Most hardwood trees will fit the bill (Oak, Walnut, Ash, etc.). A Fruitless

Mulberry grows like wildfire and provides great shade. Insulating the garage overhead door is another way of cooling the garage in the summer and keeping the space warmer in the winter. For an uninsulated metal door, add a two-inch thick layer of rigid insulation attached to the inside of each panel with contact cement. Works great! Of course, given the budget, an insulated sectional overhead door is the best alternative. Also, a stationary vent can be installed on the roof creating an exit point for hot air that is trapped in the garage attic. Such passive ventilation is inexpensive, but not nearly as effective as a mechanical exhaust system. Exhaust fans draw cooler air from the garage into the attic cooling the attic and thus cooling the space below. By the way, this same technique can used to cool the inside of the house as well. Morris and James Carey can be contacted at 1-800-737-2474 or visit their website at www.onthehouse.com.

BUSINESS

Heard it Through the Grapevine The Monthly Grapevine has been the backbone of my advertising needs. I have tried different variations of print advertising and using the exact same ad that I am currently running (and have with very little modifications for years), the results were amazing, Grapevine produces very good results, almost 8% more than any other publication I have tried. I track the return, not only customer count but also in dollars and cents, I have had no other advertising in ANY other form that produces gross dollars like the Grapevine. Now with their help, I have expanded to multiple Internet specific type advertising. Lets face it, not every business, nor every person uses or sees just one type of advertising. The results were interesting, 2 to 3 % comes from these type of advertising (almost 8% less), just barely gave me an acceptable return. I can always count on the Grapevine, if I was forced into only using one advertising source, hands down I have tried and proven results from the Grapevine, and the people are fabulous to work with, always professional and friendly and eager to help in any way they can. Thank you Monthly Grapevine!

REMEMBER TO ALWAYS...

BUCKLE UP! One of the most important, immediate actions we can take as a nation to protect children and adults in motor vehicles is high-visibility enforcement of seat belt and child passenger safety laws. The American public knows they should buckle up. Despite this awareness, research shows that many are not taking the necessary steps to protect themselves and their children on every ride. We know that enforcing the law is the most effective way to change this behavior. That is why the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Air Bag & Seat Belt Safety Campaign launch the Click It or Ticket Mobilization, a high visibility enforcement campaign that targets motorists who fail to buckle themselves and their children.

Choose your ride. Drink. Drive. Go to Jail.
