S

aint Patrick’s Day is a day
synonymous with celebra-
tion. Though Saint Patrick
is the patron saint of Ireland, peo-
ple of all ethnicities enjoy the fes-
tivities each March 17. The fol-
lowing are some of the more well-
known Saint Patrick’s Day celebra-
tions around the globe.
•New York City. Perhaps the most
famous Saint Patrick’s Day parade
in the world, New York City’s
annual Patty’s Day march down
5th Avenue has been around since
1762 and remains a must-see for all
fans of Saint Patrick’s Day tradi-
tions.
•New Orleans, Louisiana. While
New Orleans might be most
famous for Mardi Gras and all the
revelry that accompanies it, the
city also hosts a unique and rau-
cous Saint Patrick’s Day parade.
Just like Mardi Gras, the Saint
Patrick’s parade in New Orleans
includes floats, jazz bands and, of
course, costumed revelers.
•Florence, Italy. Saint Patrick’s
Day celebrations in Florence
are an ongoing
event, with 10
days of music,
food and drink.
While Italian
cuisine is loved
the world over,
during their
Saint Patrick’s
Day celebrations
the Florentines
offer their take on
Irish food and
drink, making this
celebration one of the world’s
most unique.
•Oslo, Norway. Saint
Patrick’s Day festivities
in Oslo include a
parade past the famed
Oslo Cathedral.
Revelers are encouraged to dress
up, as parade participants dress
up like famous Irish characters and
people throughout Irish history,

A
s I write my column,
it is Oscar night in
Hollywood, the
United States and the entire
world. Shirley Bassey per-
formed her James Bond hit
“Goldfinger” from 1964 and
Barbara Streisand, in honor
of the late Marvin Hamlish,
paid tribute with “The Way
We Were.” Both of these
singers hit the high notes of
their careers with these fine
musical compositions that
were brought back to life this
evening. Though I hate to
admit it, it was Shirley who
brought down the house with
a standing ovation for the
quality of her performance,
strength of her voice and the
command of the stage at age
76. Barbara is only six years
her junior, yet still captivates
audiences with the presence
of a deity every time she
performs live on stage.
Christopher Plummer, 84,
also a living legend, also
made a presentation, stating
he was interested in making
30 more films with any of the
supporting actresses nomi-
nated for an Academy Award
tonight.
Each of these profes-
sionals, craftsmen and
craftswomen in their own
right and among the most
admired performers in their
field, have proven many
things over the years. I’d like
to give you my opinion of
some of what they are,
through a financial planner’s
eyes.
Firstly, there is no fear,
hesitation or nervousness in
their performances. Though
well past their prime, they
continue to shine and amaze
us with the brilliance of their
execution of verse, song or
dance. They are confident of
their skills and with the pas-
sage of time, understand the
limitations they must now
endure. They can no longer
reach or sustain the high
notes of their youth, or they
might require a teleprompter
or they might need help nav-
igating the stairs to the stage,
but in no way will the audi-
ence see them require any
outside aid, or witness any
frailty or compromise in the
level of performance demon-
strating their craft. We
expect Shirley, Barbara and
Christopher to be ageless in
voice and forever on stage
entertaining and performing
at a winning competitive
level.
I believe they will know
exactly when it will be time

And the winner is ...
By Mark Charnet
continued on next page
to put an end to their careers
before the public decides for
them. Unlike the profession-
al athlete who might choose
to see the curtain of his
career come down before his
very eyes while rounding sec-
ond base, a true professional
performer would never take
the risk of disappointing his
audience; no, he would
choose retirement first, leav-
ing us with the memory of his
past craftsmanship, as not to
disappoint or be embarrassed
by the public spectacle he
would make of himself. We
all remember performers who
went beyond what should
have been their own declared
retirement date. (Frank
Sinatra for one.)
Barbara Streisand is one
performer who, I believe, will
never go on stage with less
than her best. A triple threat
throughout her career, she
can sing, act and dance, but
she is also a director and
comedienne. She will leave
singing in public behind, if it
comes to that, concentrating
on directing or acting when
she gets the urge to work for
a few months. Another rea-
son she would never compro-
mise her audience is because
she is financially independ-
ent and has been for decades.
Forbes pegs her net worth at
$340,000,000 and due to roy-
alties, she will probably
never drop much below that
figure. Shirley and
Christopher each have made
millions of dollars over their
careers and I hope and trust
that their money is in trust
for the hope of their kids and
favorite charities.
This is one area where
even you and I can emulate
these magnificent perform-
ers; you might not possess
their talent to entertain, but
you can employ the same
financial planning tech-
niques to “Maximize your
income today while
Protecting, Preserving and
Perpetuating your wealth for
tomorrow!”
Another reason these
entertainers look so good
after decades in the public
eye is probably because they
have little to worry about
financially. Having no finan-
cial stress has the propensity
to increase life and certainly
to make the journey a lot
more pleasant along the way.
Christopher Plummer said at
the Oscars: “These actresses
are not overnight sensations;
they have been working on
their craft since their teenage
years and will continue to do
so for many more years to
come.”
Are his words prophe-
cies, prediction, conjecture
or facts based on personal
performance and experience?
I’d say all of those apply to
every one of us, both in our
journey through life and
especially with financial
matters. With patience,
repetitive rehearsals, disci-
pline, and investment of your
time, energy and money into
that which you love or
require, perhaps one day you
will receive an award, too –
maybe not from the
Academy per se, but definite-
ly from your spouse and kids.
On that note, if you
watched the presentation of
the Oscars, did you notice
how many winners thanked
their families and loved ones,
both here and departed, for
their success and achieve-
ment? Their hard work, dedi-
cation and vision brought
them into the Hollywood
Hall of Fame. Your task (and
you should decide to accept
it) is to win your own person-
al Academy Award of a rich
rewarding retirement, finan-
cially stress-free with guaran-
teed never-ending monthly
income and a massive
bequest to your family when
you are gone.
This is something you
can do to win your lifetime
Oscar and I suggest engaging
yourself in the proper activi-
ties with practice, rehearsal
and vision as early in your
life as possible to produce the
greatest degree of success! I’d
be honored to be your finan-
cial coach and the first step is
for you to inquire about how
to get an audition set up
right away. At APG we never
charge a consulting fee! Call

A
father who is afraid to
go the dentist is likely
to pass on his fear to
his children, according to
researchers at Rey Juan Carolos
University in Madrid, Spain.
The International Journal of
Pediatric Dentistry published a
study where 183 Madrid chil-
dren from 7-15 years old, as
well as their parents, rated the
level of fear to dentistry in an
anonymous questionnaire.
The data showed that
mothers reported the highest
levels of dental fear and the
researchers concluded that the
greater dental fear is for one
family member, the greater it
would be for the other family
members. They also concluded
that the father’s feelings about
going to the dentist play a huge
role in whether a mother’s fear
of the dentist will be passed to
their children.
“Children seem to pay
attention to the emotional
reactions of their fathers, if
going to the dentist will
be stressful,” said Professor
America Lara-Sacido.
The results point to a
need for dentists to reduce
fathers’ dental fears by giving
them accurate information on
dentistry, teaching simple
relaxation techniques, or
addressing negative thoughts to
prevent passing dental fears on
to their children. The work
with the parents is key and
teaches them to be relaxed as a
way of directly influencing
their kids.

I
t’s time to start thinking
about lawn manage-
ment! After a cold
snowy winter, we are finally
just weeks away from the
pleasantness of spring.
You’ve probably got a list a
mile long of things you plan
to do with your yard,
whether it be planting flow-
ers or trimming your hedges.
But as you wait for the cold
to dissipate and the sun to
appear more regularly, now
is the time to think about
fertilizing your lawn. Believe
it or not, early spring is the
time to begin fertilizing. The
first few weeks of March are
prime time for waking your
hungry lawn. Some experts
say that in a square foot of
lawn there is potential for a
thousand grass plants.
Whether your grass has
lacked, or you wish to improve
its density and life, now is the
time to prepare for spring.
In addition to a fuller
appearance, a well-fed lawn
has healthy roots that will
ultimately combat drought,
heat,
foot traf-
fic, mow-
ing, and
other
stresses that
may occur. Well-
established grass and
turf areas also help to control
soil erosion with their exten-
sive root system. Fertilizer
contains nitrogen, which is
the most important nutrient
component in a lawn. In order
to maintain the highest quali-
ty of turf, each type of grass
requires different amounts of
nitrogen. Gro-Rite Garden
Center in Lincoln Park has
several varieties of fertilizer
available, including Scotts
4-Step Program, which is a
four-times-a-year fertiliza-
tion regimen for your lawn.
Be sure to water your lawn
after fertilizing, as fertilizing
a dry lawn can be feudal!
For more informa-
tion and tips for
fertilizing your
lawn, visit
Gro-Rite
Garden
Center in
Lincoln
Park. In
addition to a
variety of fertil-
ization programs
there are gardening sup-
plies, herbs, flowers, annuals,
and trees are available. Grow
your garden the “rite” way at
Gro-Rite Garden Center
located at 30 Hillview Road,
Lincoln Park. Call 973-694-

t seems that we all survived
the “fiscal cliff” legislation
that was finalized early in
2013. Small businesses survived
especially well, with many of
the “prior” beneficial tax provi-
sions extended into 2013 and
beyond. Here are a few of those
business provisions that you
should be aware of as a business
owner.
Asset expensing. This
provision allows businesses to
fully expense the purchase of
many assets (such as equip-
ment, furnishing, technology,
etc.) in just one year, rather
than being required to depreci-
ate (deduct) their cost over a
number of years. Up to
$500,000 of these purchases
can be immediately expensed
in the year of purchase.
Bonus depreciation. If you
hit your expensing limit, you
can always fall back on bonus
depreciation, which allows you
to deduct 50 percent (and
sometimes more) of certain
types of assets in the first year of
purchase. This provision was
set to expire at the end of 2012,
but has now been extended
through 2014.
Work opportunity tax
credits. These are tax credits
(which are much more valu-
able than tax deductions)
available to employers who hire
certain individuals. They
include military veterans, peo-
ple receiving government assis-
tance, or those living in dis-
tressed areas. These credits
were set to expire, but have
now been extended through
2013.
Qualified improvement
depreciation. Under these pro-
visions, restaurant, retail and
other rental property improve-
ments can qualify for 15-year
depreciation, rather than the
required 39-year depreciation
rate. But note that these provi-
sions are set to expire at the
end of 2013.
Health care tax credit. If
you pay medical insurance pre-
miums for your employees, you
could be allowed a tax credit for
a portion of premiums paid.

tax breaks now available for
your business, contact our

I
n the nearly three decades
that we at Boston Louis
Jewelers have been in busi-
ness, the one common desire
couples have always had when
choosing an engagement ring
is for it to be unique. While
there has been a return of
“art” into jewelry designs
in the past 10 years or so,
most engagement rings
in stores are still mass-
produced and are one-
of-many in a series,
instead of one-of-a-
kind.
Throughout history,
jewelry has been made by
hand or by manufacturers who
had more of a regional influ-
ence. As a consequence, most
engagement rings up to about
50 years ago are more apt to be
of that “one-of-a-kind” type.
But over the years, so many of
those have been either broken
apart for their intrinsic value
or they were redesigned into
more fashionable pieces for
the decades that followed. As
a result, as
time goes by, fewer and fewer
of these rings are available.
Another factor adding to
the uniqueness of an antique
or vintage engagement ring is
how the diamonds were cut.
While the process of cutting
diamonds today is aided by
lasers and computers, dia-
monds and gemstones back
then were cut completely by
hand and eye. Each “gem” was
a product of the cutter’s indi-
vidual talent in analyzing
the rough stone, and then
through the process of
cutting and polishing,
maximizing its innate
beauty.
By rough definition, for a
piece of jewelry to be con-
sidered an antique it must be
100 years old or more. The
term “vintage” means “indica-
tive of a certain period or era.”
Some sought-after periods are
Victorian, Edwardian and Art
Deco. These terms developed

M
usic is an integral
element of many of
life’s special events.
The score of a movie can carry
a film, and a tender song can
bring tears to a person’s eyes
during a stage production.
Many couples spend lots of
time choosing a song for their
first dance at their wedding.
While that song is significant,
couples should devote lots of
time to choosing a band or dee-
jay for the reception as well.
Statistics compiled from a
variety of sources, including
USA Today, TheKnot.com and
Brides magazine, point out that
roughly 80 percent of guests say
the thing they remember most
about a wedding is the enter-
tainment. When asked, many
couples admit they wish they
spent more time and money
choosing their wedding enter-
tainment.
Music helps make memo-
ries and gets guests on their
feet. Those who enjoy them-
selves most at the wedding are
often the people who are on
the dance floor. It is important
to note that price shouldn’t be
the deciding factor for wed-
ding day entertainment. It is
crucial to see the entertain-
ment provider in action to
judge for oneself just how
good he or she is.
One of the best ways to
witness a deejay or band in
action is to attend a wedding
where they will be working.
Find out if you can spend a lit-
tle while peeking into a wed-
ding and gauge guests’ respons-
es to the music and find out
how the entertainment engages
the crowd. The entertainer
may be able to arrange this
with a couple from an upcom-
ing wedding so that you don’t
necessarily have to crash the
wedding. If a musical entertain-
ment company is wary of let-
ting you see players in action, it
may be an indication to look
elsewhere.
Another good way to see
for yourself if the entertain-
ment factor is high is to pay
attention to the bands and dee-
jays used at weddings you
years later after certain dis-
tinctive characteristics of
those eras became identifi-
able.
Victorian pieces were
made in yellow or
rose gold and
often con-
tained sym-
bols or
motifs that
at the time
were associ-
ated with
expressions of
eternal love, such as
interlocking hearts, initials or
serpents. This is also where
the “three stone” rings so pop-
ular today originated.
Enamels, deep engraving and
seed pearls were also charac-
teristic of the Victorian Era.
The diamonds of this period
are what we now call “old
mine” or “old miner” cuts,
which were of a squarish-
round shape and were the
predecessor to what is sold
today as a “cushion” cut.
The Edwardian period
brought light and delicate
designs in platinum and white
gold that reflected the femi-
nine fashions of that time.
Designs utilized open filigree
work with hand-engraved pat-
terns, milgraining and accents
of tiny diamonds.
Art Deco designs incor-
porated the geometrical and
symmetrical lines found in the
architecture of that period in
both the forms of the jewelry
and the cuts of the stones as
well. Vibrant rubies,
emeralds and
s a p p h i r e s
added con-
trast to
the stark
white of
the dia-
monds and
metals used.
Each of these peri-
ods offers a beautiful option
for those looking for a truly
unique engagement ring. At
Boston Louis Jewelers in
Pequannock, we have a wide
selection of vintage, estate
and antique engagement rings
priced from around $190 and
up. We also have many dia-
monds and gemstones from
these periods for those who
would like either to replace
stones lost from family heir-
looms or to pair an old dia-
mond with a history with a
modern setting.

brought to you by Boston
Louis Jewelers, located at 151
Newark Pompton Turnpike in
Pequannock. Call us for our

Church will host a St. Patrick’s family

T
here are four main
underlying causes for
canine allergy symp-
toms. Effective dog allergy
treatment has been developed
for them, but because all of
these reasons produce com-
mon symptoms, various tests
may be necessary to determine
which allergen is provoking a
reaction. Standard methods of
treatment are successful in
controlling most cases. Some
especially severe conditions
may require the use of steroids
or immunotherapy.
The two most common
causes of allergic reactions are
atopic (that is, inhalants) —
mainly dust mites, pollen,
mold and mildew — and aller-
gens that are present in flea
saliva. The symptoms of an
allergy are most commonly
caused from inhaling an anti-
gen, or a substance which
causes the production of anti-
bodies. Studies show that in
excess of 40 percent of canines
react to the offending sub-
stances in flea bites.
Reasons that more rarely
produce responses are allergies
to food or of the skin. The
foods that are most likely to
cause symptoms are the same
foods that are the most com-
mon ingredients in commer-
cial food recipes. Certain fun-
gal infections, that is, mange
or ringworm, should be ruled
out if they are suspected. Skin
conditions that originate from
exposure to noxious sub-
stances are irritant or allergic
contact dermatitis. These rare
conditions are responses to
irritating chemicals or other
antigens.
Complicating a specific
diagnosis as to exactly what
antigens are to blame is the
fact that the same symptoms,
itching and skin problems,
characterize the different
types of disorders. Vomiting
and diarrhea may indicate a
food allergy, and continuing
ear problems or increased
bowel movements are other
possible signs. A food trial, in
which the pet is placed on a
novel food diet for twelve
weeks, is the method used to
isolate the food responsible.
Avoidance of the aller-
gen is a common strategy to
reduce symptoms for food,
flea, atopic and skin problems.
By removing and then rein-
troducing suspected allergens
one at a time, one may discov-
er the cause. Restricting pets
to a clean, uncarpeted room
and keeping them away from
possible allergens is called an
exclusion trial. Slowly intro-
ducing possible causes, includ-
ing rubbing a substance such
as grass on the paw, will help
to identify them.
There are some other
ways to remedy your pet’s
allergies. Add Omega-3 fatty
acids to their diet.
This is fish or flax oil
and they assist in
reducing the effects
of histamines, which
are responsible for
the itching and skin
conditions. If the
fatty acids do not
take effect in a few
weeks, antihistamine drugs,
originally designed for
humans, can also work for
canines.
Topical therapy, which
involves treating the skin
with anti-itch ointments,
shampoos, rinses or sprays
often have good results, but
these offer temporary relief.
Shampoos containing hydro-
cortisone are also used. Biotin,
a B-vitamin, has also shown
positive results for some pets.
When none of the above
methods is adequate for dog
allergy treatment, steroids
produce good results, but are
not recommended for long-
term use because immune or
endocrine system problems
may develop over time.
Immunotherapy, involving
allergy skin testing and a series
of injections, is a highly suc-
cessful approach for most ani-
mals. This therapy takes a
dedicated pet owner, but
results in significantly reduced
reactions to allergens.

E
veryone is a little Irish
come St. Patrick’s Day,
and children are no
exception. While kids can’t
indulge in some of the spirits-
induced revelry that accom-
panies the festivities this hol-
iday, there are many things
little ones can do to have a
good time on St. Patrick’s
Day.
•Dress in green: Encourage
kids to dress and accessorize
in all shades of green. For
even more flair, they can use
face paint to draw shamrocks
on their cheeks and hands.
•Crafts: From paper four-leaf
clovers to homemade lep-
rechaun hats and belt buck-
les, children can get in the
spirit by fashioning crafts that
correspond with the theme of
the day.
•Treasure hunt: Send little
leprechauns in search of gold
at the end of the rainbow.
Like an Easter egg hunt, hide
gold-wrapped chocolate coins

game of “hot potato” to Irish
music using a garden rock to
serve as the “Blarney Stone.”
When the music stops, the
person holding the stone is
disqualified.

hat and see how many coins
each child can toss into the
hat. The one who gets the
most in the hat wins.

A
nello fence, located
at 50 Route 23 is
proud to carry on
through 50 years of fences
within the Anello family.
Anello Fence invites local res-
idents and customers to cele-
brate with the fourth genera-
tion. “To understand our busi-
ness, I think it’s important to
take a look at where we came
from and how the family has
progressed over the last 50
years,” says Steve Anello,
owner of Anello Fence (not
affiliated with any other com-
pany).
As immigration began to
taper off in the mid-1950s, a
key local character found his
way onto American soil from
his homeland of Italy. Emilio
Anello, Sr. came to the
United States in 1956 and
began working for a local com-
pany in the fence industry.
Little did he know, this move
would set the pace for the rest
of his life and impact his fami-
ly for generations to come.
Shortly after breaking into the
fence industry, Emilio was
joined by his brother Joseph
and his father Salvatore
Anello. Seven years later, on
Route 23 in Wayne, Anello
Bros, Inc. was born. “Emilio
Anello, the founding father of
Anello Bros., Inc. and the per-
son responsible for making the
Anello name synonymous
with fences, came to America
in search of an opportunity; he
is the very embodiment of
what the American dream
looks like,” says Steve Anello,
Emilio’s son.
Over the course of the
next decade and a half, the
company outgrew its Wayne
location and moved to a larger
location. Salvatore would
travel between New Jersey and
his hometown in Italy fre-
quently to accommodate his
Italian real estate business
while playing an invaluable
role in his sons’ fence compa-
ny until 1968 when he retired.
Throughout the years,
Anello Bros., Inc. improved
their trade, constantly pushing
to remain a frontrunner in the
fencing industry. Anello was
not only the largest retail
fence establishment in
Northern New Jersey, but also
was a major wholesale supplier
to many other fence compa-
nies in the Northeast. In
1967, Emilio and Joseph pur-
chased and ran a saw mill in
Vermont to manufacture their
own wood fences. The saw
mill supplied not only their
store but many other fence
companies, and ultimately
many homeowners. 1974
brought on the addition of
self-manufactured chain link
fences by running three
machines twenty-four hours a
day. Finally in 1999, Steve
Anello began fabricating PVC
fences as the very first in the
area to do so. Currently
Anello is one of North Jersey’s
largest suppliers of the product
and now runs three PVC
machines daily. Today Anello
Fence, LLC owned by Steve
Anello offers several addition-
al fencing varieties like arbors,
mailboxes, mailbox posts,
bamboo fence and aluminum
fences. Steve Anello is now
introducing his three sons to
the fence industry, making
four generations within the
industry.
Anello Fence is one of
Northern New Jersey’s top
fencing contractors. Their
goal is to provide the best
quality fence while still
remaining an affordable solu-
tion for your needs. Fences are
manufactured to face the test
of time, all the while reflecting
a timeless beauty. After 50
years in the industry, the
Anello family often marvels at
the progress of the previous
five decades. “It is such an
honor to be where I am right
now, bringing up my three
sons as the fourth generation
of Anello’s in the fence indus-
try and at the same time hon-
oring my father and his broth-
er Joseph for all of their hard
work over the years,” explains
Steve Anello.
Celebrate 50 years of fam-
ily fencing with Anello Fence.
Do not be misled by imitators;
there is only one Anello Fence
in one location - 50 Route 23

K
itchen renovations are
the most popular
home improvement
projects. Renovating a kit-
chen is a great way to increase
the value and also the func-
tionality of a home. The
National Kitchen & Bath
Association’s latest market
report says that, in the first
three months of 2012, the
number of homeowners who
started a kitchen renovation
was up more than 50 percent
from the previous quarter. A
kitchen is a central gathering
place and is one of the most
popular family gathering spots
in the house. With traditional
dining rooms being eliminated
in favor of open, eat-in
kitchens and entertaining
spaces, more attention than
ever is now placed on a well-
designed kitchen. The average
remodeling budget for a
kitchen renovation exceeds
$30,000. But there are ways to
keep budgets in check.
•Do some of the work yourself
to reduce money spent on labor
costs.
•Consider laminate flooring
and counters, which will look
like real stone but at a fraction
of the cost.
•Skip custom cabinetry in lieu
of stock units. They’re more
attractive than ever before and
don’t require the wait time of
custom-ordered cabinets.
•Choose less expensive, mid-
range appliances that may
function better than or equal to
high-end models.
•Plan layout accurately and
spend time reviewing your
designs. Late changes in a
remodel can quickly eat up a
budget.

orned beef is a St.
Patrick’s Day staple.
However, those who
may not have dined on corned
beef brisket may be unaware as
to exactly what the cut of
meat entails. Is it covered
with corn? Why is it pink in
coloring? Learning about the
food can shed light on the
mystery.
Corned beef is reminis-
cent of the foods once enjoyed
before refrigeration was pre-
dominant. In order to prevent
foods from spoiling, meats
were often packed in
salt or brine to inhibit
the growth of mold and
bacteria. The “corned”
in corned beef likely
refers to the nuggets, or
what the English called
corns of salt, and other
spices used in the brine
recipe.
Corned beef be-
came popular among
Jewish and Irish immi-
grants in the United
States. The Irish ate
corned beef in their
native land when there
were lean times and wide-
spread famine. To harken back
to those days, corned beef is
often served as a reminder on
St. Patrick’s Day, a day of cel-
ebration in Ireland and for
people of Irish descent all
across the globe.
Corned beef is usually
boiled, with or without cab-
bage and other vegetables,
which makes it more tender
and palatable. It also dissi-
pates the salty brine. The
corned beef is then served
with the cabbage and vegeta-
bles, oftentimes carrots and
potatoes.
Corned beef brisket is
rarely roasted because it is a
tough cut of meat. It can be
smoked, however. Smoked
corned beef is known as pas-
trami, and is a staple for deli-
catessen sandwiches.
Most of today’s corned
beef is processed without
nitrates, which used to be used
as a preservative against botu-
lism and to maintain the
bright red color. Nitrates may
be cancer-causing agents, so
limiting their consumption is
often advised. The brisket
may be packaged as a “point
cut” or a “flat cut.” The point
cut is rounder and has more
fat. The flat cut is leaner.
Corned beef can be
cooked in a pot of boiling
water for 3 to 5 hours to help
tenderize the meat. Look for
briskets that are cut across the
grain so that they will be easi-
er to chew.
What is Corned Beef?
DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 375
degrees F. Line a sheet pan
with parchment paper.
Combine the flour, sugar,
baking soda, and salt in the
bowl of an electric mixer fit-
ted with the paddle attach-
ment. Add the butter and mix
on low speed until the butter
is mixed into the flour.
With a fork, lightly beat
the buttermilk, egg, and
orange zest together in a meas-
uring cup. With the mixer on
low speed, slowly add the but-
termilk mixture to the flour
mixture. Combine the cur-
rants with 1 tablespoon of
flour and mix into the dough.
It will be very wet.
Dump the dough onto a
well-floured board and knead
it a few times into a round
loaf. Place the loaf on the
prepared sheet pan and light-
ly cut an X into the top of
the bread with a serrated
knife. Bake for 45 to 55 min-
utes, or until a cake tester
comes out clean. When you
tap the loaf, it will have a
hollow sound.
Cool on a baking rack.
Serve warm or at room tem-
perature

A
wedding cake is a
crowning finale to a
momentous wedding
day. Couples spend hundreds of
dollars on tiered confectionary
creations, which provide great
photo opportunities and even
better desserts.
Though a wedding cake is
a traditional component of
wedding celebrations, profes-
sional bakers may charge any-
where from $2 to $6 per guest
for the average cake. That
could mean spending upwards
of $900 for a cake to feed 150
guests.
There are many reasons
why cakes may be so expensive.
For instance, the equip-
ment used to bake cakes
does not come cheaply.
Ingredients, such as butter,
high-quality flours, chocolate,
real vanilla, and others tend to
have high price tags.
Furthermore, the time that
goes into baking and then intri-
cately decorating the cake adds
up to quite a bit of labor. For
couples who prefer not to spend
too much on a cake, there are
ways to save money and still
savor a delicious dessert.
•Ask a local bakery or restau-
rant if the pastry chef will cre-
ate your wedding cake.
Oftentimes, bakers who do not
specialize in wedding cakes
will make a cake at a much
lower cost than bakeries
known for their wedding
cakes. If you adore a dessert at
a particular restaurant, ask to
have it duplicated.
•Commission an amateur
baker, such as a friend or family
member, to make your cake.
There are many budding cake
artists out there, several of
which have the cursory skills
to create a delicious and aes-
thetically appealing cake.
Friends or family members
may even make the cake for
little or no cost.
•Keep decorations and flavors
to a minimum. The more
embellishments and designs
you put on the cake, the more
expensive it will be. Stick to
the basics, and the cake won’t
cost as much.
•Look into culinary schools
in your area. A student pastry
chef may be able to produce a
cake for you at a fraction of
the cost of what an established
baker may charge. This saves
you money and the student
can use your cake as part of his
or her portfolio.
•Skip the tiered cake. Tiered
cakes require careful stacking
and engineering. Also, if the

attend. If you are planning nup-
tials in a year or the months to
come, take the cards or infor-
mation of the entertainers you
come across at weddings and
any special event parties. If
there is someone who is doing
an impeccable job, there
should be no hesitation to hire
that person for your own wed-
ding. Don’t be embarrassed to
ask a friend or family member
for the name and number of
their deejay.
If you have specific music
requirements, such as cultural
music or certain versions of
songs you prefer to be played, it
is key to discuss this with the
deejay or band ahead of time
and confirm they can meet
your needs. Certain wedding
vendors may promise you the
world but fail to deliver. Ask
the deejay for a playlist to see
his or her selections for the
wedding. Find out if the band
has a compilation they can
send to you so you can see
how they sound performing
some of the more popular
songs typically played at wed-
ding receptions.
If you like a particular
band or deejay, double-check
that the people you see play-
ing are actually the ones who
will be performing at your
wedding. Many times per-
formers are part of larger com-
panies that have many people
working under one name. If
you’re not careful, you may
not get the same performer
you had hoped for. Request
specific individuals if you
want to guarantee that the
music will be what you heard
at a previous wedding or dur-
ing a trial performance.
Music can make or break
a wedding reception. Invest
ample time into selecting and
trying out vendors to ensure
fun is to be had by all.
Test out wedding music vendors
Spending time and money selecting the right band or deejay can
ensure your wedding is a fun-filled event.
T
here are many differ-
ent ways to convey
feelings of affection.
Some people pen poetry, oth-
ers bestow gifts, while still
others feel moved by music
and lyrics. Songs have long
been a popular way to convey
emotions, and love songs
have been performed by
artists from nearly every
musical genre at some point
in time.
Although music is sub-
jective, some love songs have
stood out as fan favorites.
Commonly featured at wed-
dings or as the backdrop on
romantic evenings, the fol-
lowing songs are considered
some of the more popular
love songs of all time.
•“Love Theme From ‘A Star
Is Born’” (Evergreen): This
Barbara Streisand classic
from the hit film helped
Streisand earn both an
Academy Award for Best
Song from a Motion Picture
and Grammy Award for Song
of the Year.
•“Up Where We Belong”:
Few people can forget the
ending scene of “An Officer
and a Gentleman” when
Richard Gere sweeps Debra
Winger off of her feet. The
song “Up Where We Belong”
by Jennifer Warnes and Joe
Cocker from the movie will
always be a romantic favorite.
* “All My Life”: Former
Jodeci members K-Ci and
JoJo created an enduring
romantic song with this pop
hit.
•“Save the Best for Last”:
This song became Vanessa
William’s signature song and
a smash hit.
•“Be With You”: Soul singer
Mary J. Blige emphasizes
sticking with the one you
love by being loyal.
•“I Do It for You”: This
Bryan Adams hit was nomi-
nated for an Oscar as the
theme for the 1991 film
“Robin Hood: Prince of
Thieves.”
•“I’ll Make Love to You”:
This Boyz II Men song was
one of the longest-running
No. 1 hits of all time.
•“Lovesong”: The Cure’s
Robert Smith penned this
song as a present to his wife,
Mary, in 1988.
•“Sweet Love”: Anita Baker’s
soulful hit helped turn her
from a budding R&B singer
into a household name.
•“Love Me Tender”: His
good looks and gyrating hips
helped thousands of women
fall in love with Elvis Presley.
However, this signature love

including Saint Patrick himself.
•Toronto, Canada. Though
just a quarter-century old,
Toronto’s Saint Patrick’s Day
parade is now one of the largest
in North America. Featuring
more than 2,000 marchers rep-
resenting 100 organizations,
Toronto’s annual celebration of
Saint Patrick covers roughly
two miles and includes floats
and lots of live music.
•Seattle, Washington. The city
of Seattle’s Irish Heritage Club
hosts its own Saint Patrick’s
Day parade and, in fact, a week
of celebrations officially known
as Irish Week. A two-day Irish
festival includes Irish music,
singing and dancing as well as
several contests and activities
for kids.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
F
or decades the month of June held firm as the most popu-
lar month for weddings. But statistics now indicate that
there may be shifting preferences in the time of the year
for marriages. According to The National Center for Health
Statistics, July and August are now the most popular months for
tying the knot in the United States. September and October
have also gained momentum as premier months. Explanations
for this shift vary, but it may have something to do with chang-
ing weather patterns and warmer weather now arriving later in
the season than in the past. Also, getting married later in the
year may make it easier for couples to secure their first choice of
wedding venues.
song endeared the famed
crooner to many others.
•“My Heart Will Go On”:
Celine Dion’s theme from
“Titanic” became one of the
most popular love songs of all
time after the film’s 1997
debut.
•“I’ll Stand by You”: This
1994 hit from The Pretenders
can be interpreted as a song
of romantic devotion or a
commitment to friends.
•“You Are So Beautiful”: Joe
Cocker makes the list again
with this soulful 1975 hit.
•“Have I Told You Lately”:
Originally written and
recorded by Van Morrison,
this song gained new life and
notoriety when recorded by
Rod Stewart.
•“My Girl”: Beloved R&B
group The Temptations deliv-
er a song about sunshine on a
cloudy day in this classic.
•“I Will Always Love You”:
Witten and performed by
Dolly Parton, this song is per-
haps most known for the ver-
sion performed by Whitney
Houston for the soundtrack
of her 1992 film “The
Bodyguard.”
•“Time After Time”: A song
of devotion, Cyndi Lauper
earned her first No. 1 single
with this hit.
•“Hey There, Delilah”: A
simple song of young love by
the Plain White T’s.
•“Unchained Melody”: The
Righteous Brothers delivered
the best-known version of
this song, which helped cre-
ate movie magic between
Patrick Swayze and Demi
Moore in the 1990 film
“Ghost.”
•“Just the Way You Are”:
Billy Joel’s classic in which he
tells his beloved she is perfect
as-is.
•“Your Song”: A simple, elo-
quently written song of love
from Elton John.

Q
uestion: Why is
renter’s insurance
important?
Answer: Renter’s insurance
provides coverage for the per-
sonal content you own. It pro-
tects extensively, ranging from
your socks to your MacBook
Air. Specialty items such as
antique jewelry, musical instru-
ments, collector’s items, even
handguns can have separate
floaters or increased coverage.
With your renter’s policy,
you will have liability coverage,
as well. Let’s say, for example,
that it’s the week after your
wonderful Super Bowl collo-
quy. You receive a hand-deliv-
ered notice letting you know
that you’ve been served
because that mysterious patron
at your gathering ended up in
the hospital from the fall he
sustained in your home while
he was extremely intoxicated.
With renter’s insurance, you
have a policy that will keep
your savings or future wages
pretty well secured.
The gem for a renter’s
policy is that your personal
belongings anywhere around
the world are covered. If you
are vacationing in Jamaica
and your Dooney & Bourke
suddenly grows the feet of a
track star, it is still covered.
The outlay for a renter’s policy
is very minimal, while the
protection is very vast.
Whether renting an apart-
ment with eight other neigh-
bors on your floor, or renting a
private dwelling with your
own backyard, renter’s
Insurance is a very wise
investment.
From apartment fires to
the random burglary, after
something bad happens is not
the time to secure your
belongings. Contact me today
and let’s protect the legacy
you build.

local Farmers Insurance
agent, seeking to provide you

O
nce they have walked
down the aisle and
returned from their
honeymoon, the next step
many newlyweds look forward
to is buying their own home
together. Though there are
deals to be had in any real
estate market, the cost of home
ownership is something many
newly married couples cannot
instantly afford. That’s espe-
cially true for the increasing
number of couples who pay for
their weddings without any
help from family.
Such couples still harbor
the dream of home ownership,
but realizing that dream can
seem like a daunting task. But
the task grows easier when cou-
ples begin to exercise some
financial restraint. There are
many cost-cutting measures
newlyweds can take that will
help them save money for
whatever their next big pur-
chase might be.
•Learn to cook. Learning to
cook is not only a rewarding
lesson, but also one that can
help newlyweds save a signifi-
cant amount of money.
Contrary to popular belief,
cooking isn’t terribly difficult.
Gourmet meals might require
some natural culinary inclina-
tion, but more standard fare
can be as simple as following a
recipe. For those who have
never stepped foot in a kitchen,
it might be a good idea to take
cooking lessons. Such lessons
are typically inexpensive, and
the cost of the lessons will be
recouped once couples start
cooking for themselves and
stop relying on costly meals out
on the town. Couples who
learn to cook together might
also find it strengthens their
relationship.
•Downgrade the apartment.
Non-married couples who live
together commonly prefer two-
bedroom apartments, using the
second bedroom as a guest bed-
room/home office. The cost of
a two bedroom is more than a
one bedroom, but non-married
couples often feel it’s worth the
extra money. No matter how
negligible that extra cost is,
newlyweds saving for a home
should consider downgrading
to a one bedroom (unless one
person works from home). This
can help save some money on a
monthly basis, enabling newly-
weds to inch closer to the day
when they will have enough
money saved to make a down
payment on their own home,
which can then have as many
rooms as couples prefer.
•Furnish the home piecemeal.
One advantage today’s newly-
weds have over those of yester-
year is that many live together
before walking down the aisle.
This means they’re not really
starting from scratch once they
get married. A typical modern
couple already has enough fur-
niture and other household
items to get by once they have
moved into their new home.
For those concerned about how
they’re going to furnish a home
once they’ve signed on the dot-
ted line, one way to cut those
costs is to hang on to what you
currently have, and steadily
buy new items one-by-one after
you’ve moved in. Rather than
facing the hefty bill couples can
expect if they buy everything at
once, newlyweds who go the
piecemeal route will find it’s
much less stressful to furnish a
home piece-by-piece.
•Find ways to make home
ownership work. First time
home buyers are typically
shocked at the cost of home
ownership. However, commu-
nities might offer a class that
explains the home-buying
process and how best to navi-
gate it. Some lenders even offer
a lower interest rate to prospec-
tive buyers who have complet-
ed such a class. Such a discount
can save couples a significant
amount of money over the
course of the mortgage, and the
classes can give couples a better
understanding of what they’re
getting into by buying a home.

Cost-cutting measures for newlyweds
N
owadays, homeown-
ers looking to sell
their homes know
it’s not as easy to do so as it
might have been a few years
ago. A struggling economy has
made it difficult for many
homeowners to sell their
homes for a price they’re com-
fortable with.
But the sagging economy
is not the only thing can make
it difficult to sell a home. In
fact, a host of other things,
some obvious but some not so
obvious, can hurt a home’s
value as well.
•Location: A home’s location
is arguably its best or worst
selling point. A home in a
great location won’t be as dif-
ficult to sell as a home in a bad
nei ghborhood.
But location goes
beyond a neigh-
borhood’s repu-
tation, especially
in recent years.
Ho me o wn e r s
who live in a
neighborhood or
d e v e l o p me n t
with many fore-
closures might
find those fore-
closed properties
are hurting their
own home’s
value. Lots of
f o r e c l o s u r e s
could negatively affect a
neighborhood’s reputation,
which might make a home
within that neighborhood
less attractive to prospective
buyers.
•Appearance: A home’s
appearance is another obvious
variable that might affect its
resale value. Homeowners
might want their home to
reflect their own individuality,
but that’s not going to help
when the time comes to sell
the home. If the exterior paint
is out of the ordinary, then it
might be wise to choose a
more traditional or conserva-
tive color before erecting the
“For Sale” sign out front. The
same goes for a home’s interi-
or. If the interior design is
especially unique, a more tra-
ditional interior decor might
help the home sell faster.
•Size and style: Another
thing to consider when selling
a home is its size and style. A
home that stands out on the
block might be an attention-
grabber, but that’s not always
attractive to prospective buy-
ers. For instance, a colonial
sitting in the middle of a street
filled with contemporary
homes will stand out, but like-
ly for all the wrong reasons. It
will likely appear dated and
out of place, which is some-
thing buyers might not want.
In addition, if the home is
considerably larger or smaller
than the surrounding homes,

ongratulations to Bonnie Berk Schwartz and William
“Bill” Rothenberg of the Wayne Coldwell Banker office
on achieving the National Association of Realtors des-
ignation of “Realtor Emeritus Status” for their 40-year member-
ship. “I applaud these two full-time realtors for their continued
success,” said Patti Tahan, manager. “They’ve adapted to the real
estate changes over the years and have gotten into the tech and
social media world.” Bonnie and Bill appreciate your past sup-
port and look forward to your continued loyalty. For all your real
estate needs, you can reach either at the office at 973-694-8000
or directly; Bonnie Berk Schwartz at 201-396-0919 and Bill
Rothenberg at 973-692-3513.
tiers themselves are made of
crystal or another expensive
material, it could inflate the
cost of the cake. Choose a
lower-profile cake to save
money.
•Serve guests from a sheet
cake. Some couples opt to
have a dummy cake on display
or just a small cake for cutting
purposes, and then have wait
staff serve from a simple sheet
cake. Guests rarely recognize
the difference.
•Shop at a warehouse center.
Warehouse centers often have
an in-store bakery capable of
producing cakes for large
crowds. These cakes can be
delicious and inexpensive. As
long as you don’t advertise
where you bought the cake,
there’s a good chance no one
will be able to detect a dis-
counted cake.
•Choose ready-made cakes and
stack them yourself. Find a bak-
ery near you that keeps a con-
stant supply of specialty cakes
in their display cases. Purchase
2 to 3 cakes of the same variety
and find cake pedestals from a
party or craft store. Embellish
the tiers with a few fresh flow-
ers and you have a tiered cake
for a minimal cost.
•Think about an alternative
to cake. Tarts, pies, cream
puffs, and other culinary cre-
ations may be more afford-
able and just as delicious as a
lavish cake.

then this could hurt its value.
•Non-conformity: In many
ways, conformity is not con-
sidered an admirable trait. But
when selling a home, con-
formity could make the differ-
ence between a home selling
quickly or remaining on the
market for months if not years.
When shopping for a home,
buyers often shop in certain
neighborhoods and towns and
might see many different
homes within a given ZIP
code. Homeowners with
homes that don’t conform to
others in the area might find it
difficult to sell their homes.
For instance, homeowners try-
ing to sell a two bedroom
home in a neighborhood filled
with three bedroom homes
might notice their home’s
value is not as high as that of
surrounding homes, regardless
of the neighborhood or how
similar the home’s exterior is
to surrounding homes.
•Age: Older homes might
have character and a sense of
nostalgia, but appraisers take
age into consideration when
determining a home’s value.
And buyers tend to lean
toward newer homes for a
number of reasons, not the
least of which is the feeling
that newer homes have far
more modern amenities than
older homes.
When it comes to a
home’s value, there are a host
of things that could ultimate-
ly increase or decrease that
value in the eyes of prospec-
tive buyers.
Factors that might
hurt a home’s
value
