MARI DE VILLA & THE VILLA ESTATES I

f you are in retirement mode, you may just want to check out Mari de Ville before making a move. On this luxury estate-like campus you will find the very pinnacle of care and a luxury lifestyle. The community is all inclusive, providing every alternative- from independent living in luxury villas to 24-hour skilled nursing care. A home-like atmosphere is pervasive throughout the 25-acre Town & Country retirement community. Retirees who choose the Villa Estates at Mari de Villa have an array of personalized living options. The Villa Estates units range from about 1,000 to 3,500 square

AMENITIES INCLUDE: • Park-Like Setting • Indoor/Outdoor Pool • Socials • Formal Dinners • Private Dining Rooms • Stocked Fishing Lake • Modern Fitness Room • Limousine Service Join us for Sunday Brunch and to take a tour. RSVP Required.

feet and are very customizable. Guests can choose amenities like hardwood floors, carpeting, tile, cabinet and paint colors and they can refurbish their villa to their specifications. Units are expandable and can include such options as dens or glassed-in porches, for example. With amenities that include the Villa Club, an indoor/outdoor swimming pool, and a variety of programs, seniors can enjoy active lifestyles. For lifelong social butterflies, there’s an abundance of activities and fun throughout Mari de Villa: Christmas parties, candlelight dinners, brunches and more. Residents can enjoy a number of years in their villa and when the time comes and they want more services and care, they can move to the assisted living and skilled nursing on the same campus, with the same set of faces, so it’s an easy transition.

Offering the Very Pinnacle of Personal Care and Luxury Retirement Lifestyle

“With a ‘continuum of care,’ guests find the services they need at every level,” says president Fred Wiesehan. “It’s very important that our staff gets to know our guests and vice-versa—it creates a very comfortable, happy environment where everyone feels at home.” The assisted living and 24-hour skilled nursing care are located in Villa East and Villa West of the main building. Most residents enjoy private or double rooms. Mari de Villa has recently expanded its assisted and skilled offerings, in addition to its therapy department. With the recent opening of the Waterford Wing (connected to Villa West) physical, occupational and speech therapies - along with rehab and restorative care - are conducted by Rehabilitation Professionals, Inc. Mari de Villa offers a host of programs designed to to keep assisted living residents active. These range from book reviews and art classes to guest speakers. The Memory Care Wing provides activities individually geared for each resident to help stimulate recollection. Services are provided by a qualified and dedicated staff, some who have been here for more than 25 years. Throughout the community, a closeknit family atmosphere prevails. This is because Fred and his wife Mary Kay (Mari de Villa VP) live on-site along with their oldest son Fred, a licensed administrator. They raised their three children here on the 25-acre campus and are in their 28th year on the premises. Co-founder and chairman, Georgana Linneman, also lives on-site playing an active role in day-to-day operations, “It’s our home, too, so we go out of our way to make sure that home is right for all of our guests,” she says. The community is currently in an expansion phase, with architects working on plans for a new assisted living wing east of the lake. Wiesehan says. “We’re continuing to look toward the future and how we can offer our residents even more.”

BACK COVER FEATURE: SEALMAXX

SealMaxx Introduces the Plus Process for 2012

SealMaxx presents you with a unique opportunity to never seal your wood deck and dock or your concrete driveway or patio again! SealMaxxPlus sealants create a permanent internal bond with the wood fibers and/or the limestone within the concrete. If a deck board rots in the next 25 years, SealMaxx will replace their product and their labor for you at no charge. Never seal it again!

SealMaxxPlus includes our exclusive PWS 2000 Silicone Moisture Barrier which is applied in conjunction with the SealMaxx Wood and Concrete Sealants. This product is now available in a beautiful cedartone for the wood and several different color options for concrete. The combination of the two sealants provides you with maximum protection for your wood and/or concrete for years to come. David Monahan and Ed Wolf provide the SealMaxxPlus Process to the Greater St. Louis Area/Metro East, Lake Ozark, Columbia and Jefferson City, MO. David, Ed or one of their representatives would be happy to assess your property, review your project, and explain the SealMaxxPlus Process in detail and discuss if the service is right for you.

SealMaxx offers you the finest quality products available, with the highest degree of customer service possible at a fair and reasonable price. Never seal your wood or concrete again! Please call today for a no obligation, no cost consultation.

Inaugural Event to Take Place at Chesterfield Amphitheater

ON THE WATER!!!

T

he City of Chesterfield is pleased to announce its partnership with Entertainment St. Louis for its signature event, Forks & Corks which will take place on September 1, 2012 at the newly completed Chesterfield Amphitheater from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. This upscale event will feature delicious cuisine from the finest area restaurants, a wide selection of international wines, regional craft beers, an artist village and live music all day long. There’s no charge to attend the event and take in all the great bands and cooking demonstrations. Patrons may purchase tasting booklets allowing them to sample small portions of culinary treats paired with signature cocktails from the restaurants. Local artists, in a variety of mediums, will be showcasing their pieces as well. Besides on-stage cooking demonstrations, local chefs will be paired with artists and will be challenged to come up with an artful meal using a basket of ingredients they are supplied with, similar to the popular Iron Chef show on the Food Network. “We are excited to continue to work with Entertainment St. Louis for this event, since they produce the very successful Taste of St. Louis and Blues Week events,” said Tom McCarthy, Parks & Recreation Director. “This will become a signature event for West County over Labor Day weekend for years to come and we look forward to showcasing all Chesterfield has to offer to those who enjoy great food and wine.”

ack to school should be fun and exciting, for the parents!!! right? We have survived another summer of camps, travel and constantly evolving schedules. Here at Out & About we just wanted to give you a little help in getting those supplies that the kids are going to need, (beyond the four pages that the school is handing out). After weeks of research we have compiled a list of the top-ten things that are practically ‘must haves’ for back-to-school in 2012. The keyword is technology. From kindergarten to grad school, having the right piece of equipment is more than a fashion accessory. It is a fashion necessity.

Here are our top-ten devices for the fall: 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

Scientific Calculator: A staple in the high school and college classroom, no Einstein would be caught without. Laptop Computer: Fading fast into the shadows of the tablet but still has great functionality. Headphones: The best stimulus for some is music, however does not necessarily have to be shared with all. Wireless Printer: Having a printer in a central place in the house where all can access wirelessly is a joy. Hands-free Device: No talking or texting while driving. Many new ways to avoid the dangers. Wireless Keyboard and Mouse: Bluetooth enabled accessories allow kids to type and create on the go E-Reader: The E-Reader has become an affordable alternative to tablets and a great source for research. Apps, Apps, and More Apps: Just about anything you need, there’s an app for that. There are many great tools available Tablet: The tablet is sleek and portable. The versatility, usefulness and fun factor is unmatched. The Smart Phone: Call, text, email whatever it takes to stay By George Slaughter in touch. 30

Adults Can Play, Too!

Remembering the Fun and Regaining the Benefits of Play "We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing." - George Bernard Shaw

M

y four brothers would sit side by side on the couch, arms wrapped across each other’s shoulders like a Rockettes chorus line: “Nootthiinnng to Dooo! Nootthiinnng to Dooo!” Their song slaughtered the first four notes of Beethoven’s 5th symphony (da-dada-DUM) and echoed through our house, over and over, in little/big-boy cracked voices. Mom would come scurrying from the kitchen, dish towel in hand, and plant her bare feet in front of the singers. “GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY!”

8 GROWN-UP REASONS TO PLAY

1 2 3 4 5 6 7

Playing Pretend spurs improvisation and can help us gain insight.

Laughing releases endorphins and suppresses stress hormones, strengthens the immune system and burns calories! Crouching, kneeling, and stretching increases blood flow and improves cardiovascular health. Throwing increases eye-hand coordination. Playing outside in bright sunlight lessens the likelihood of depression. Physical activity can improve balance and help prevent bone loss.

Engaging in activities that stimulate the brain can reduce your risk of cognitive impairment.

Mike tossed bottle caps in the air and smacked them into the weeds with a stick. Butch disappeared into the woods, coming home at dusk with our dog trotting beside him. Billy, the baby, spent his days on the swing set or riding his tricycle, with occasional cups of Kool-Aid for energy. And me? I climbed high in the trees around our house, singing to the top of my lungs and dreaming of a future as a pop star like Vikki Carr (“It must be him…Oh dear God…It must be him…”). Our days were full of PLAY…that elusive and wonderful activity that all kids know how to do. Then, we grew up. Work, family, bills, problems, responsibilities and just plain fatigue zapped our playing time. We forgot the absolute joy in doing nothing.

And we lost the spark that keeps our imaginations soaring and our bodies and minds healthy. When was the last time you played “HO-R-S-E” basketball? Colored a picture without worrying about the outlines? Sang a song out loud just because it popped into your head? PLAY: Not just for Kids We grown-ups need to remember how relaxing and exciting it is to do something without a purpose. It goes against our adult mindsets and may seem like a waste of time, but health professionals from physicians to psychologists insist that play is vital to a healthy, happy life at any age. Play is spontaneous and frivolous. It gives our brains a chance to imagine and our bodies the freedom to frolic in undignified poses. It isn’t planned, except in the most basic steps of “put on sneakers, grab a ball” or “grab the car keys, find a park”. And it doesn’t have to be physically demanding. Play can be as simple as strumming the guitar that is waiting in the closet or snapping some photos of a beautiful sunset. Regardless of the activity, anything that speaks to your soul, ignites your imagination and makes you smile is play. It makes our bodies more flexible and adaptable, it makes our brains work better and it can improve both the quality—and quantity— of our lives.

Discovering Play All Around You Adults come in all sizes, ages and capabilities. But play is ready for you, just the way you are. If you try you can remember what you used to love doing. You may have to modify your actions a bit (I look at trees and wish, but I don’t climb, sigh), but you can rediscover the feeling. Play mini golf or go bowling with friends. Set up that dusty croquet set hiding in the basement (you know it’s there) and show your kids. You don’t need a court or even a net to play badminton in the backyard. Visit a paintball field and play “army” like you did when you were 8. Learn a new skill without the pressure of perfection: square dancing, rock climbing or swimming. Hobbies are play. Scrapbooking, writing, painting, gardening…anything that sparks your creativity and takes your brain on vacation from daily chores adds value to your life. You can attend a trivia game for a good cause or just because. Go fly a kite (one of my favorites, still.). Take a walk without a destination. Remember how that felt? Recess Time Every Week While it may be unrealistic to expect a daily play period for us who support our families and juggle responsibilities from dawn to dusk and beyond, you don’t need to spend a lot of time playing to feel the benefits. Give yourself a little time, here and there, to find that inner child inside. You can hop on your bike for a leisurely ride on a Sunday afternoon, play Simon Says or Mother May I? with the kids after supper, or belt out a tune in your car or-gasp-in the yard when the mood strikes. We can improve our quality of life to remember the fun of living and the joy of having fun. It’s easy, and it’s waiting for you right where you left it a while back. So- “GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY!” By Robin Garrison Leach

ORGANIZED SPORTS VS. PLAYFUL CHAOS An impromptu softball game or horseshoe match can be just as much fun as lolling along the riverbank with a fishing pole in hand. But as adults we have to remember how to play by the rules without making it serious. Find that balance between competition and fun 33

ired of the same old trips to the same destinations every summer with kids who barely glance away from their personal devices to look out the window of the car? Vacations can be more fun than that if you take a closer look at the road map and plan your adventures to include a little history. I know; it sounds like a school field trip.

STEAMBOAT HISTORY Arabia Steamboat Museum 400 Grand Boulevard, Kansas City, MO www.1856.com or 816-471-1856 Steamboat travel played a vital role in the settlement and development of the West and thousands of men boarded the boats to ride along the Missouri River in the 1800s. One famous steamboat, The Great White Arabia, sunk near Kansas City in 1856. More than 132 years later, the Arabia was found and salvaged from the Missouri River. See the sunken ship’s cargo: from bottles and buttons to pistols and porcelain figurines, a six-ton stern section of the boat and many other artifacts that give a glimpse into the history of steamboat and Midwest history.

NATIONAL HEROES Jefferson Barracks Historic Site 345 North Rd., St Louis, MO. www.stlouisco.com or 314-544-5714 Closer to home, the history of our wars and servicemen through the years is honored at Jefferson Barracks Park and Museums, in Lemay. Jefferson Barracks served as a gathering point for troops and supplies bound for service in the Mexican War, Civil War, various Indian conflicts, Spanish-American War, Philippine War, and World Wars I and II. Today, the 425-acres park uses original stone buildings from the post as museums for permanent displays, special exhibits, as well as tours, classes and seminars. In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War, the site now offers the new exhibit: The Civil War in the West, with uniforms, equipment and artifacts of many key battles.

FIRE ENGINES OF THE PAST Fire Museum of Missouri 908 East Business Route 60-63 Willow Springs, MO. www.usfirehouse.com or 417-252-0677 Take a couple days and a carful of kids to the Fire Museum of Missouri. In Willow Springs, southeast of Springfield, the museum is a scenic drive from home and full of antique fire engines. 23 engines that span decades are on display along with many photos, unusual fire extinguishers and large collection of Fire, Police, and Emergency Medical Service uniform patches. As if that weren’t enough, the museum also has a vintage soda pop collection of over 3000 bottles. Your kids will have a great time and a unique topic for their “What I Did on my Summer Vacation” essay. CLOSE TO HOME St. Charles, Missouri www.historicstcharles.com We often forget to enjoy the interesting history in our own backyards. The first Missouri Capital, St. Charles is brimming with places to see, things to experience and activities to enjoy.

History oozes from every block of Historic Downtown; take a stroll along the streets and notice the architecture and signs telling about its rich heritage. Brimming with fun and facts, the area will lead you to many other historic sites around the county you may not realize exist. For a new perspective of St. Charles, take a spooky tour at night to hear about those inhabitants who loved St. Charles too much to leave.

If you are on a course with limited access to water, be sure to have water bottles or energy drinks available to you at all times. Hydration is critically important to avoid cramping or more serious conditions like heat stroke.

Beat the Heat on the Links

S

t. Louis’ summer heat requires golfers to take some precautions to enjoy the game to the fullest and remain safe at the same time. Here are several key tips to stay strong during both practice and play. Dress for Success The heat certainly requires golfers to be mindful of proper preparation and dress. Light-colored clothing is always a safe bet, but with the everchanging apparel options tech materials exist now that can make for a much more comfortable experience. These polyester spandex blended materials wick the moisture from the body which in turn keeps your shirt dry. It has been scientifically proven that an all-tech black shirt will keep the body cooler than an all-white cotton option. These tech shirts are a great buy as they hold their color, their shape and their size. In the summer heat a new cotton shirt can be ruined with one hot day. For the traditionalist, many vendors have introduced blended materials that combine both tech and cotton – this option is still better than no tech at all. Don’t forget about your feet too. Moisture wicking socks and light weight breathable shoes are your best bet. If you plan on buying shoes, take extra time to be fit properly so as to avoid blisters and sore feet. Some styles and brands fit some people differently so find the brand that works and feels best for you.

Equipment Needs If you are walking or riding in a cart during a round of golf, be sure to include more than just your golf equipment. Your golf bag should include: sunscreen (preferably a spray that can be applied easily during play), band-aids, a pain medication like aspirin or ibuprofen, and an insect repellant. Note: As bug spray can be extremely harmful to course turf, be sure to apply sprays prior to the round or if you reapply during play, be sure to apply away from the grass and only on cart paths.

Hydration Stations Persimmon Woods has numerous water stations (and cold towels stations) located at various points on the course during high heat and humid conditions. If you are on a course with limited access to water, be sure to have water bottles or energy drinks available to you at all times. Hydration is critically important to avoid cramping or more serious conditions like heat stroke. Every year we see golfers fall victim to the heat due to the lack of preparation before their round when selecting the proper clothing and maintaining proper hydration throughout the round. Absolutely avoid any consumption of alcohol during a hot, humid round of golf as this will only speed up the dehydration process. Have fun and stay safe! Jeff Escott is the Head PGA Golf Professional at Persimmon Woods Golf Club and winner of the 2011 Gateway PGA Merchandiser of the Year Award for private clubs. A native of Chatham, Ontario, Jeff is now in his fourth year directing the golf staff at Persimmon Woods, a private golf club located in Weldon Spring, MO.

Tasty Tidbits from Eateries in and Around Chesterfield

PM BBQ Smoked Chicken, Pesto, Bacon Panini

T

his is one of Amy Ruck’s recipes that the Ruck & Lamers families (owners of PM BBQ) use for any leftover chicken that they have. It would also be great with a pound of freshly pulled chicken from PM BBQ. This recipe can be made with smoked turkey as well. The panini can be made ahead of time and served at room temperature for a picnic or at the lake. If a panini is not available, this can be made by grilling the sandwich in an oiled skillet, with another skillet or a brick wrapped in foil on top to weigh the bread down and fuse the flavors together. PM BBQ is located in Chesterfield Valley at 103 Chesterfield Towne Centre. 636536-1966 www.pmbbq.com. It is locally owned and operated by Paul Lamers & Mark Ruck. They have won numerous awards for best BBQ in town. Try it out soon for some delicious real hickory smoked BBQ. They offer dine in, carry out and catering services. RECIPE: • 1 pound pulled smoked chicken • 8 ounces sliced provolone, havarti or similar cheese • 12 slices cooked bacon • 4 TBS pesto • 4 ciabatta rolls or 8 slices of good sourdough or multigrain bread. Slice and open rolls, or lay out bread. Top one side with 1 ounce

cheese, 4 ounces chicken and 3 slices bacon. On top of sandwich, place 1 ounce cheese then spread with pesto. Close sandwiches. • Spray each side with a little cooking spray. Place 2 sandwiches at a time on hot panini press and grill until brown & heated through. • Would also be great with roasted red peppers or sundried tomoatoes!

If You Are Hot, Your Wine Is Too A letter to Gary Bilder of Lukas Liquors... Dear Gary, Summer is upon us. Most of us will be sitting on our decks, entertaining and drinking. DON'T FORGET - the proper serving temperature for red wine is 65° and white wine should be 55°... "Really, Gary?! It's 95° outside and you want us to think about keeping our WINE at the proper temperature?" A lot of my friends put ice cubes in their white wine. The ice melts and ruins the wine, but if ice cubes aren't used, the wine gets too warm. When it comes to reds - too many of us give up, or drink them altogether too warm. Here are some hints from Gary for serving wine on a hot day. The temperature won't be perfect, but the wine will taste good.

• Put your red wine in the fridge 30 minutes before you plan on opening it. Fill up a shallow-bottom tub with ice and put a thin kitchen towel over the ice. Lay your red wine on top of the towel to keep it from getting warm before serving. • Buy red or green grapes. Place grapes in a Tupperware container and freeze. Put one or two grapes in your serving glass for reds and three or four grapes in your white wine glass. When your guests finish their glass, they eat the grapes! It's fun and it protects your wine. Have a great Summer and enjoy your libation experiences!

Serving Beer From a Keg...

Cool Summer Drink Recipe: Sangria Best served by Charles on the Bistro 1130 Patio. However, just is case you want to indulge at home the folks at Bistro 1130 shared their recipe with us. Now this is for a couple gallons worth of Sangria, so invite your friends! • • • • • • • • • •

1 1/2 cup Camus VSOP brandy 1 cup orange juice 1/2 cup pinneapple juice 1 bottle Syrah 1 bottle Pinot Noir 1 cup Cointreau 6 limes & 6 oranges sliced in rounds 6 lemons sliced in rounds Best to let all sit over night. When dispensing each drink over ice, top the cocktail with your favorite ginger ale. This will give it that fresh effervescence you want.

• Add herbs like basil or mint for interesting modifications. Cheers! Compliments of GM Jason Ledbetter Bistro 1130 Town & Country Commons 636-394-1130 www.bistro1130.com

In St. Louis there are approximately 250 beers available in kegs. Kegs come in three sizes: a half (1/2) barrel contains about seven cases. A quarter (1/4) barrel has three and a half cases. A sixth (1/6) barrel has about two and a half cases. A handful of beers come in a quarter barrel, including Bud Light. When serving beer from a keg make sure you serve it in a 12 oz cup. Beer in a 16 oz cup gets too warm. The keg needs to be iced down at all times. This requires three 20 lb bags of ice for 1/2 barrel. If your keg is not properly chilled you could lose 10% of your beer to foam. A tapper system is used to pump the beer through a hose to a dispensing valve. If the hose is not covered with ice it will get warm. Cold beer going through a warm hose will also result in foam. You’ll save 10% of your beer if you keep the hose cold. Beer will stay fresh for up to five days. Tips above provided by Gary Bilder owner of Lukas Liquor Superstore. Lukas has the best selection of wines and spirits in town.

Kids of all ages LOVE this place! Located in the strip mall off Long Road in Chesterfield Valley, Surf Dogs Grill & Key Lime Co. is a memorable experience with a fun, beach-like atmosphere. Walls are adorned with pictures of families on vacation, at ballgames and having all kinds of fun. It’s known as their “Wall of Fame”. Not only is it a great place for families, but it also works for a Brian Wieher, owner quick and tasty business lunch. Why not take an hour off and feel like you are on vacation in the middle of your work day. You deserve it! Here there are dogs, dogs, and more dogs- more than 15 hot dog varieties from which to choose. These pure Vienna beef hot dogs can be steamed, grilled or deep fried and are served on a poppy seed bun. I love the mini A patron enjoying a hot dog dogs which allow you to take bites of a variety of tastes. Order the ‘Pup Sampler’ which includes four mini dogs of your choice. Or take home a platter for your next party or for watching the Cardinal games at home. These dogs are way better than the dogs at the ball park. Really! Try the originalpineapple, tomato and bacon topped with sport peppers and mozzarello cheese, or the epic chili dog with chili, cheese and onions. Surf Dogs is not just all about dogs. It offers fabulous stuffed Gyros and delicious sandwiches, burgers and brats as well. Sandwich choices include fish, pulled pork, chicken (jerked, grilled or breaded), Italian beef and the ultimate BLT. The Chicago combo is huge- 1/4 pound of Italian beef and 1/4 pound of Italian sausage smothered in peppers. Wow! Other choices include sausages- Brats, Polish & Italian, thick juicy burgers, salads, chili, tamales, wings-dry or wet, and the list goes on! Sides include fries, homemade chips, a tangy slaw, or fruit served with most sandwiches. The menu is diversified to say the least. There is something here for all taste buds! They have a nice kids menu which includes mac and cheese, dog and chicken bites and grilled cheese. Brew is also available for the grown-ups. And dessert-The key lime pie is worth the trip by itself. Dipped in rich chocolate and served on a stick it offers an ‘out of body’ experience. Don’t ask, just try one and see for yourself. Surf Dogs Grill is locally owned and operated by Brian and Carmen Wieher and offers quick and friendly service and a lively, tropical atmosphere. Eat in, carry out or let them cater your next event. Stop by soon.
