If you’ve ever wondered where your hard earned money is going, it’s time to take a more thoughtful approach to your spending. Spending too much and living in deficit mode is stressful, but you aren’t alone. According to a recent Federal Reserve report the total U.S. consumer debt was $2.43 trillion. Here are some tips that can help.

CUSTOMER SERVICE

Sarah Ellis GRAPHICS DEPARTMENT

Monica Mendoza

Do you miss bill payments and incur late fees? Do you pay ATM fees to access your own money? Stop wasting money on avoidable fees. A latte every morning may seem like a worthwhile indulgence, but is it worth nearly $1000 a year? Small expenses add up, so the easiest way to build savings is to cut them out. Grow this number in your savings account, rather than your credit card bill. Think before spending. We live in a world where there is an opportunity to make impulse purchases every time you turn around. Shut off your “purchase auto-pilot” and actively think about your spending. Before reaching for plastic ask, “Do I need this or just want it? Is there a better way to spend this money?” Don’t lose sight of big goals. Put a picture of that car you are saving for in your wallet and by your computer to help you stay goal-oriented. Shop wisely and locally. Clipping coupons is a no-brainer. Some people disregard the task, because of the effort involved. But it can be painless if you 6

TRAVEL TIME

will offer a variety of ways to cruise through one of the world’s engineering wonders, the Panama Canal.

Plan Ahead your 20122013 Cruise It’s that time of year when we realize that summer is definitely behind us; the holidays are fast approaching and it’s time to think of travel for the holidays and beyond. For that reason, the cruise lines usually put out their warm weather itineraries for the next year or so about this time of year. And for that reason, Princess is no exception. Sun-Drenched Islands, Colorful Ports and Fascinating Marvels take center stage for Princess Cruises’ 2012-2013 Caribbean and Panama Canal Sailings. Princess ships return to Texas Gulf Coast with cruises from Galveston. Princess Cruises ships will sail to the balmy waters of the Caribbean from both Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and Galveston, Texas during the fall 2012 to spring 2013 cruise season, plus

the ports of our Caribbean and Panama Canal sailings are the perfect way to escape from the cold of winter, the stress of work or everyday routine,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises executive vice president.

Princess’ upcoming Caribbean schedule will feature five ships sailing to the Eastern, Western and Southern Caribbean, including a Western Caribbean route aboard Crown Princess that will mark the line’s return to sailing from Galveston. During the fall to spring season, passengers can choose from 115 voyages sailing to 22 destinations on 10 itineraries, ranging from seven-day island getaways to relaxing 20-day sojourns.

We are having a cruise sale with Princess from October 17th to October 14th. A number of very good amenities will be included on your booking if you book during that time frame and the most valuable amenity we can offer you is a reduced deposit on all cruises for Princess during that week.

Additionally, Princess continues to be the leader in Panama Canal cruising with two ships -- Coral Princess and Island Princess -- sailing in the region on eight itinerary options, including both full and partial Canal transits. The vessels, built especially for sailing through this marvel of engineering, together will offer 40 cruise departures for an up-close look at the fascinating process of moving up and down through the famous locks. “Whether they want beautiful beaches, natural wonders, colorful culture or intriguing history, passengers will find

Regardless of the length or time of the cruise ALL DEPOSITS for ALL CRUISES on Princess Cruises are $100 per person. So Contact us during that week and let Princess help you Escape Completely©. Next month, we will go into detail on the various itineraries in the Caribbean and Panama Canal. We are sure you will agree there is something there for everyone and anyone. 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

If you have not visited Antique Co-Op, you are missing out on one of Brentwood’s special treasures. When Antique Co-Op owner Gail Webb decided to move, she found that the many antiques that had decorated her previous home didn’t fit the new home. She just wanted to sell some of her antiques, but one thing led to another, and before she knew it, she owned the store! At Antique Co-Op, conveniently located on Brentwood Boulevard, you’ll find a huge assortment of antiques and collectables. But they sell much more than just antiques. With 20 dealers and spaces and each dealer selling new, vintage and antique items, there’s something for everyone at Antique Co-Op. Just a few of the items you’ll find are vintage clothing, furniture, jewelry, home décor, sports memorabilia, tools and so much more. You’ve got to see inside to believe it! All the dealers are very friendly and customers are invited to come in and browse. It’s Gail’s mission to be sure every customer is greeted with a smile, a hello and will feel welcome, whether they purchase anything or not. But, chances are, you’ll find at least one treasure to take home!

HEALTH

Committed to Your Dental Health for a Lifetime!

Dentistry Built On Trust


HEALTH

FOR YOUR DENTAL HEALTH

Denture Care If your denture has some miles on it and you have noticed that it doesn’t fit well anymore, it’s time to consider a new denture. A new denture can bring new function and a more youthful appearance too. The fact is, your mouth is always changing. The bony ridges that support a denture recede due to constant shrinkage, altering your facial appearance and you probably have noticed this as well. Wearing an old worn out denture may cause your chin to approach your nose at as much as 1/16th inch per year! On top of that, the bite often changes, moving the upper teeth back behind the lower teeth instead of the upper teeth being in front of the lower teeth. Over time, your facial structure shifts, the cheeks sag a little, new wrinkles appear around the mouth and diagonal lines run from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Your facial profile has gradually changed. This transformation is usually

caused by an old denture. We can rework your denture by extending the base to compensate for the shrinkage in the gum tissue and the bony ridges. This moves the front teeth forward to their original position and takes years off your appearance. But if the denture teeth are worn down, then it is probably a good idea to get a new denture. Life with a denture is not life without dentistry. There are some special oral health concerns even for people who wear dentures; Candida infection is one of the them and the most common. Candida is a yeast-like fungus present in the mouths of nearly half of all denture wearers. It does not cause much trouble when the denture fits well and when the mouth tissue is healthy and the nutritional needs are satisfied. An ill-fitting denture may cause bad eating habits affecting the oral tissue and interfering with the balanced nutrition to the body, opening the door to Candida invasion. It happens fast; Candida can spread over a denture in just 30 minutes. Since Candida can permeate the acrylic liner of dentures, chronic infection can occur. The common result is denture stomatitis-red inflamed areas under the denture supporting tissues. This

will discourage wearing the denture at all. To prevent the infection, keep the dentures clean and remove the dentures at night. Best of all, have us evaluate the denture for fit. Even if your present dentures are in perfect condition, changes in the mouth and the bone supporting the denture are constantly taking place. You cannot expect dentures to last more than 5 to 10 years and still give you a natural look, but by replacing dentures as your mouth changes you will enjoy renewed function and a youthful appearance to your face. But remember, your oral health will always need attention, denture or no denture. Apollo Dental Care is the dental office of Dr. Sue Padavettan D.D.S.

priorities shift, but our attempt to prepare to the best of our ability stays the same. Focus that preparation into becoming a homeowner and you’re sure not to miss out on that king size chocolate bar.

Trick-or-Treat Remember when you couldn’t wait to go trick-or-treating? As a “kid” – I’ve seen teenagers as old as sixteen still trying to collect candy throughout certain neighborhoods - the anticipation Halloween night brought during the actual day was next to impossible to duplicate. Planning your candy route with your friends, checking the batteries in your flashlights, and making sure you had the perfect pillowcase were all part of ensuring you were as prepared as possible. Put the sheer thought of a king size Hershey’s bar into a child’s mind and you’d be amazed at the preparation that begins to take place…you can practically see their wheels turning. Years then pass, plastic fireman helmets turn into the real thing, little princesses turn into Miss America - we all grow up. Our chase for that Hershey’s bar turns into a race for the gym as we scramble to make a spinning class before taking our own children out trick-or-treating. Our

With all of the consumer protection “safeguards” put into place throughout 2010, buyers no longer need worry about ending up with a single piece of sourpatch candy for a lender. All loan officers, known professionally as Mortgage Loan Originators (MLO), can now be tracked nationwide by their unique National Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS) number. Consumers can easily verify many crucial pieces of information about their potential MLO with a few easy clicks of their mouse; the last 10 years of employment history, license status, location of legal brick-and-mortar business and whether or not the MLO is engaged in any other businesses are accessible at www.nmlsconsumeraccess.org. If you cannot find your MLO through this system of checks and balances, they are not a licensed professional and should immediately be thrown away like a piece of already unwrapped candy. Once your decision is made, and you’ve determined the MLO whom you’ll be allowing to handle your financing, it is time

*Don’t forget, continued education is needed. If your MLO has yet to complete their 8 hours of continued education, then their license might have expired…if they can’t handle their own responsibilities, how can they possibly look after yours?*

to move onto the next step of preparation. Ensuring your financial documents are in order will also ensure your MLO is able to quickly and efficiently review the information with you. Plan on bringing your last month’s worth of paycheck stubs, two month’s worth of bank statements, and the last two filings of your personal - and corporate if you’re self-employed - federal tax returns to your initial sit-down. By having this information in order, and easily accessible, it will allow your pre-approval process to run smoother than your Halloween candy route ever could have.

PRUDENTIAL REALTY

Consider solid wood or hollow metal doors, which are more likely to resist wind pressure and flying debris. There are also roofing products with high wind resistance available.

Protect Your Home Against Weather Disasters It may still seem like spring but fall and winter are just around the corner and who knows what havoc Mother Nature may wreak tomorrow. Water, wind, fire and earth movement can be hazardous to your home. But, there are actions you can take now to protect your property and prevent major damage should one of these elements strike. Depending on the age of your home and the building codes in your area, some of these improvements may already be in place. Water - Apart from major flooding, most damage occurs when water seeps in through cracks and leaks. Make sure that windows and doors are well sealed. Seal any cracks and holes in the foundation and exterior walls. Repair or replace roof shingles around any area that allows water to penetrate the roof sheathing. Check for holes or air leaks in the attic and basement. Install or make sure that the flashing, a thin metal strip, around the doors, windows, thresholds, chimney and roof are in tact. Wind - Minimize the damage by keeping the wind from getting inside your home.

Wildfire - Some inexpensive home improvements that you can make include installing a spark arrestor on your chimney, eliminating brush and debris from around your property. More expensive improvements include replacing single-pane glass windows, doors or skylights with tempered glass, recovering your exterior walls with a more fire-resistant material, and re-roofing your home with a Class A roof covering. Earthquake - Steps you can take to protect your property and possessions include anchoring appliances, water heater, dressers, and other heavy items to the wall. You can finds kits at the hardware store. Secure ceiling lights, chandeliers and other hanging items to the permanent structure of your home. It is also a good idea to install a main gas shut-off device. Of course, there may be times, when no amount of prepping can protect your home. However, homeowner’s insurance can help protect you financially in case something happens to your property or its contents. Most standard homeowner’s insurance policies include structural coverage and personal property coverage. Depending on your location, you may also need additional coverage against earthquake, hurricane, flood and fire. If you are renting, look into renter’s insurance; it can be surprisingly affordable.

Remember the owner’s policy does not cover your personal property. Periodically review your homeowner’s insurance policy to make sure that you are adequately covered to rebuild your home and replace your contents. If there is ever damage to your personal property, having a home inventory can make it easier when filing an insurance claim. Go around the house and list every item in every room. Don’t forget the attic, basement or other storage places. In addition, take photos or video of each room for visual documentation. It is also a good idea to arrange valuable collections, silver, jewelry, etc. and take close up photos. It is important to have an emergency evacuation plan and designated meeting area to take ahead count in case of fire or other emergency. When weather-related disasters strike, what’s most important is your safety and that of your family. However, by taking precautions to protect your home, you can possibly help keep damage to a minimum; or in the case of severe damage, make sure that you have the financial means to rebuild.

Restoring Concrete Patio Dividers If your concrete patio is in good condition except for gray, tattered and splintering wood dividers then wood replacement may be in order. This is a repair that is relatively inexpensive, and although somewhat timeconsuming, fairly easy. If you were present when your patio was being poured, you may have noticed that there were evenly spaced rows of nails partially driven into both sides of the wood dividers. The nails are used to “key” into the concrete to hold the dividers in place. Don’t worry about the nails though. Once a divider has rotted enough to need replacement the nails are probably rusted and rotted away as well. During divider replacement the nail keying technique cannot be used. You might assume that once you have removed the old wood from the concrete there won’t be anything to hold the new wood in place. Not so. The new wood strips are held by the irregular shape of the recess in the concrete. Wood divider replacement is

rather easy. You’ll need a hammer, a wood chisel and a hand saw, maybe a pair of side-cutters, a small vacuum and an electric sander or an electric planer or a small table saw (these can be rented) and a small block of soft scrap wood about 12 inches long. First, use the hammer and chisel to remove the wood strips. No special technique is required. Just get the wood out as best you can. Be careful not to dull the chisel by driving the sharpened end into the concrete. You might consider using knee pads for comfort. Oh, and don’t forget eye protection. Once the wood is removed, use the side-cutters to shorten any nails that may remain in the concrete. Don’t cut them completely away. Leave about one-quarter inch of the nail sticking out of the concrete. Again, if the wood is rotten enough to need replacement there probably won’t be any nails. Next, vacuum the cavity removing scraps of wood, concrete and small debris. Use the electric sander to mill the replacement dividers so that they are approximately one-sixteenth to three thirty-seconds of an inch wider than the average width of the divider cavity. Cut the wood to length, and starting at one end begin driving the strip into the crevice using a wood block between the divider strip and the hammer. We don’t want

hammer marks on our brand new divider strip, now do we! Simple physics holds it all in place. As the wood is driven into the concrete cavity the sides of the strip adjacent to the concrete are torn upward. Between the compression created by installing a slightly oversized piece of wood and the upward angle of the torn sides of the wood you’ll have a tight fit. Clear, dry redwood should be used. Not just clear, but clear and dry. If green wood is used (green referring to moisture content, not color) it will shrink as it dries out and in very short order, two to three months, it will be loose and in need of replacement. To make sure the wood dividers will last as long as possible, be sure to rub a couple of coats of clear wood preservative onto all six sides of every strip. Once in place the dividers will be fully protected. Every year or two, pour oil onto the divider strip and let it trickle down the sides and ends. Wipe off the excess to prevent a sticky mess. Follow this process and your new replacement dividers will outlast the originals.

WHO’S BEEN SNOOPED?

Let The Sun Shine In! Here it is, the 1st of October; the morning temperature is a mild 70 degrees. You have got to love the East County and the beautiful weather it unveils this time of year. Now with the influence of vineyards, the Brentwood farmlands warrant the brush of an artist. The colors are spectacular and the sunsets to die for. The corn harvest is almost over and you can hear the tractors putting the fields away for winter. What a great time to wash those windows and enjoy the fall from inside your home. And, finish putting up those window coverings so your house can be ready for the holidays. So, my dear readers, off we go to snoop a local company that can fulfill those needs. Accent’ Shutters & Blinds, a family owned and operated business since 1996 is just a phone call away. All you have to do is call 513-7130 and the showroom comes right to your home. After talking to Joyce and Blane Boatright about giving me an estimate and helping me with my interior design, I knew I had chosen the right company. After all, even a snoop needs a little help making her home the best

it can be. These guys have a great reputation and have a long standing relationship with this community. Many of my friends have used Accent’ Shutters & Blinds and they couldn’t be happier. The best part is, after choosing your window coverings, it is just two weeks until it is delivered and installed. That means by the time you get this publication, you can have your window coverings in and ready for Thanksgiving. Your in-home estimate is free and get this; they will even give you free installation and better yet, temporary shades while you wait. It can’t get any better than that. And, these guys are certified Hunter Douglas shutter installers, so you won’t have to worry about those horrible stories you’ve heard about the shutters from, well, you know. Some of the products they carry are the 2” Faux Woods Blinds, Duette Honeycomb Shades, Silhouette Window Shadings, Luminette Privacy Sheers, Vignette Window Shadings and 1” Celebrity Aluminum Blinds. Boy that’s a mouthful, and imagine they all come right inside your home so you can see the exact color and fabric before you buy. They even ask you to compare their prices with other companies and witness first hand the savings. I think the thing I liked most about dealing with Accent’ Shutters & Blinds, is they are so personable and willing to help. Prior to calling, I thought I would check out the local building stores to see if I could do my

little project by myself. I found myself in the middle of hundreds of books, all with different directions on how to measure, with prices varying from cheap to ridiculous. Not only that, but by the time I waited to talk to the clerk about my choices, they rolled in that giant rolling ladder and the forklift with the “beep,beep,beep!” noise. The lighting was horrible and I was practically in tears. And remarkably, after bidding my project with Joyce, I was saving money and getting the quality product and service I deserve. As your secret shopper, I pride myself in guiding our readers to the right location for the right job. Well, you don’t even have to leave your home, just pick up the phone and call. They are always on time and ready to help you in any way. Just tell them in advance what kind of project you have and they will bring the showroom to you. That means you can schedule your appointment during that particular time of day that brings in the most sunshine so you can see exactly what it means to have privacy or visibility. Now that’s impressive. So Joyce and Blane, the Monthly Grapevine gives you five rays of sunshine for making this snoop happy and offering such a wonderful product and service to our community. Who will be snooped next? It could be you!

Accent Shutters & Blinds can be contacted at 925-513-7130.

Exceptional, Affordable Dental Care Tired of Uncomfortable Dentures?

Call for our special implant discount with mention of this ad.

Dental Implants Are The Answer! Replacement teeth that look and feel natural! Dental implants are artificial roots that hold replacement teeth, dentures and bridges.

• Improved stability • Improved chewing • Improved comfort

• Improved appearance • Improved speech • Improved self-esteem

No More Adhesives Or Slipping! CHEW BETTER! An implant allows a crown to be securely anchored to the jaw, leaving the adjacent teeth virtually untouched. Implants allow for secure installation and easy removal of dentures. • Eat, speak and chew naturally again. • Missing teeth lead to shrinkage of the jawbone, causing the face to appear older. • Loose dentures can result in slurred speech or clicking noises.
