What’s Up Tartan Fields?
How do you like our color? With the
last issue we went to full color on all the
stories, photos and advertising. Several
of you have told us that you’ve noticed
and enjoyed the difference. Speaking of
color, make sure you get out and enjoy
the beautiful fall colors just starting to
show. We’ve got two great events you can
do with your kids this month – see the
Dublin Artc Council Riverboxes article
inside this issue and the listing for the
Fall Family Walk at the Dublin Rec Center (also in this issue).
Thanks for all the great stories and photos you are sending in. We really appreciate it and it makes the newsletter so
much more fun. If you’ve got a pet you
want to feature, or if you own a business
I’d like to hear from you! Please send me
an email at [email protected]

Picking the Right Dog for Your Family
Client Lacey, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Client Abby, a Shih Tzu
Dogs are the only species that come in
a huge variety of packages. They can be
small to large, have short or long hair, can
be a couch potato or an energetic athlete.
Here are some tips in deciding what dog
may be best for your family.
Beagles, Spaniels, Poodles & Pugs are
great family dogs. If you are an outdoor
type, maybe a Lab or Retriever is more
your style. If you want a lap warmer, a
Shih Tzu, Bichon, or Maltese will fit the
bill.
•
Consider your finances. Large dogs will
cost you more with food & vet bills.
Certain breeds need to be groomed regularly.
Do your homework…Talk to rescue
groups, shelters or even trainers and vets
about different breeds. Or give me a call,
I will be glad to help you.
•
Consider your children. If you have
small children, you don’t want them
knocked down by an energetic big dog
or a very small dog that could get
injured by your children.
Susan Willis
Dublin Pet & Home Sitting Service
614-792-5903
•
Consider your time. Certain breeds
need a lot of exercise. Do you have the
time for three walks a day or do you
want more of a couch potato?

Did you attend “Boot Scootin’ Boogie
Nights” in August? Then you remember
all the fun! The evening doubled as a
fundraiser for a non-profit called Vision
Trust Guatemala and the group raised
about $8,000! It was attended by about
300 people! Enjoy these pictures from

McCrabb, Kingston Webb, Bueller and
Betsy Minamyer, and Flo Mustafaga

going and loves to travel.

Julie Sheley and Marla Moore have a Halloween party for their block each year.
We have been doing this for about eight years probably. It is a fun time to get together
before trick or treat and allow the families to get something in their tummies before all
the candy begins.
Halloween
in tartan fields!

Business Beat
Company name and industry you are in:
Clear View Building Services Inc.
Professional window cleaning
Your name and contact Info:
Brandon Zell, 937-645-0916
[email protected]
Your Position: President/Owner
Business Location: Dublin, OH
Anything extraordinary/unique that
your company does: Hot water power
washing up to 240 degrees
How many people does the company
employ? There are five of us
Describe what your company does, how
did you get into this business, how long
have you been in this business? My
late father Lynn and I started this business together in 1996. We both liked the
idea of being our own boss. The attitude
we took into our business was “give the
customer what they want at a fair price”.
And by all means PAY ATTENTION
TO DETAIL! Taking care of the small
details is what separates us from the
competition. For the past 13 yrs we have
been providing quality workmanship in
window cleaning, awning cleaning, siding
cleaning, chandelier cleaning and powerwashing.
Tell us about your family, hobbies/
interests, volunteer work? All five of us
have our own families. I have a wife and
two children. A boy, 5, a girl, 8. I am an
avid golfer and sports enthusiast. I enjoy
woodworking and construction. Every
week, I, along with my other employees,
volunteer in our communities to help
others to see how the bible can help them
in their lives and give them a future to
look forward to.
Given your business expertise and the
nature of what you do, what advice can
you offer to the residents of your neighborhood? A job well done is worth the
price you pay. Price does not equal quality.
Give Clear View an opportunity to work
for you and SEE the difference
What sets your company apart from
the competition? This isn’t just a job.
We don’t work for a paycheck. This is our
career. We put our reputation on the line
with every job. Our reputation takes care
of our families. We are a small company.
If we don’t do a good job, our business
won’t survive. WE stand behind every job,
not a kid looking for summer work with
no emotional attachment.
If your company would like to be profiled in an
upcoming issue, please email your contact information

Minamyer Party
a Huge Hit!
End of summer celebration on the
Archer Lane Cul-du-sac in The Glen
of Tartan Fields
Over 120 neighbors and friends gathered
for a back yard concert at the Minamyer’s
home performed by The JoAnna Connor
Band of Chicago! The band was exceptional and they are a frequent attraction
at leading Blues nightspots around the
USA, Canada, Europe, South America
and Japan. JoAnna regularly performs at
The House of Blues and Kingston Mines
in Chicago where she lives! Some of us
locals fly to Chicago to enjoy her shows
there!
It was a great and fun night, excellent weather, food and music. JoAnna
is a complete electric guitar package
and vocalist extraordinaire. She covers
the range of modern blues, blues rock,
slide guitar with her own compositions
influenced by funk, rock, jazz and world
music.
Several Tartan Fields families got the
band members many OSU Buckeye
memorabilia which she said they appreciated very much. They will wear their
new Buckeye shirts and necklaces this
Fall during performances scheduled in
Fort Lauderdale, Naples, Chicago and
Las Vegas! They already ate their Buckeye chocolates on the ride back home!
JoAnna stated she appreciated everyone’s
hospitality with such a warm welcome in
Dublin.

How long have you lived in this house?
Almost five years – I can’t even believe it!
What is unique about your house? I
have cement countertops – I had to fight
for them and I absolutely love them!
They look like wood so it’s fun when
people come into the kitchen – everyone
always touches them to see what they are.
Did you design or decorate it yourself ?
If not, what company did you use? I
helped to change the original design of
the floor plan. I’m pretty sure I was in
the top 10 people with the most change
orders from CV Perry ever! Marty Stafford (From Stafford Homes) was with
CV Perry when we built the home and
we worked together to come up with the
current design. I’ve decorated the home
myself – it’s still a work in progress!
What was your inspiration? Things that
make me smile – if I love it, it works. I
generally have a piece in each room that
will give me an idea for the room and
then I go from there.
What is your favorite decorating store?
Not really a store – a website – Crave
DesignStore.com of course!
What is your favorite room in the house
and why? My kitchen – we can seat 10
or more at the table and since we always
have a ton of kids over it works out great!
We entertain a lot and so we made the
kitchen a place where we can have everyone hang out.
Did you decorate the entire house at
one time, or over the years? It’s always
a work in progress – as soon as I’m done
with it I’ll probably start re-doing something! That’s the fun part!!
What advice would you give to someone
looking to spruce up his or her Living
Space? Paint! Change the color of the
room – a fresh coat of paint (or a great
faux painting) can change the entire look
and feel of a space.
Each month we try to write a feature about Tartan
Fields home’s decor in the Tartan Times called “Living
Spaces”. If you would like your home or a neighbor’s
home highlighted in the next available monthly
Tartan Times, please email your contact information
and attach a few high-resolution photos of your featured space to [email protected] Thank you for

Dublin Student Artists
– October Exhibit
exhibitions:
Hey kids – see if you can find the riverbox
hidden in the foliage!
One of the newly installed riverboxes hidden a bit from view so as to
keep it a wonderful surprise when you actually find it!
Riverboxes are Back!
Fun with your kids - Riverboxes are back!
DAC’s Riverboxes are waiting to be discovered! For updates and information
about these popular works of art and
clues to their locations, please see their
website at www.dublinarts.org.
Dublin Arts Council commissioned
innovative and environmentally sensitive
artistsin 2007 to create Riverboxes, public
artworks that contain a unique, artistmade stamp, journal and information for
Dublin residents and visitors to discover
in parks located along the banks of the
Scioto River. The selected artists created
their Riverbox in response to artistic,
environmental and historical information
provided about these six river access sites
in the City of Dublin.
The Riverboxes project, part of Ripple
Effect: Artistic Impact of the Scioto River, is inspired by the pastime of letterbox-
ing or geocaching, wherein participants
combine map-reading or GPS skills and
artistic pursuit with delightful ‘treasure
hunts’ in beautiful, scenic places.
Community participants are encouraged
to bring a personal journal and an ink
stamp, either hand made or commercially
produced, when searching for Riverbox
locations. Letterboxing/geocaching hobbyists often mark their journals with the
ink stamps discovered at each location,
and in turn, imprint the site’s journal with
their own ink stamp.
Each of the six Dublin Scioto River
access points has a Riverbox discreetly
placed within the parks boundaries.
Clues to their whereabouts were posted
on the web site on Sept. 11. Go to www.
dublinarts.org/onview/ripple/map.pdf
for a map of how to get to each of the six
Riverboxes.
Emerging; an exhibition of student art
on view Oct. 6 – Oct. 30
emerging is DAC’s popular annual
exhibition of artwork created by students
who live within the Dublin City School’s
attendance area. The juried exhibition
includes Best of Show and cash awards
in four categories from kindergarten
through grade 12. An opening reception
for the artists, their friends and family,
will be held Tues., Oct. 6 from 6-8pm.
The exhibition will be on view Tues.
10am–7pm; Wed./Thurs./Fri. 10am–

Ways to Save
on vacation
when Times are Tough
If you’ve been wavering on spending money
for a vacation, remember that vacations can
be particularly valuable stress relievers during
a tough economy. By shopping smart and
making small adjustments in your spending
on the trip, you can decompress without
worrying about money too much.
The Tartan Times
October
Weigh the value of driving vs. flying:
Check to see where gasoline prices are
before you leave -- driving vacations may
not be the cheapest alternative. If you
haven’t measured the gas mileage lately
on your car, do so after your next fill-up
and see what it would really cost you to
drive to your desired destination – and
don’t forget wear and tear on the car
(roughly 10 to 20 cents a mile), meals
or hotels on the road. If you plan significantly ahead of time, traveling by air
might not only get you there faster – but
cheaper. At the same time, if you fly and
need a rental car, don’t forget to figure in
that cost.
Plan online: Calling hotels and airlines
to make reservations will not only put
you on hold, they’re also likely to cost
you more money. If you’re not a regular
user of the Internet, you should know
that airlines and hotels particularly have
migrated more of their deals for rooms
and meals to their websites because visitors can complete the whole reservation
process themselves. That saves airlines,
hotels and rental car companies considerable labor cost. Also, if you’re flexible,
you can check travel sites that offer lastminute deals and travel that way.
Go for the package deal: Online travel
sites make it easy to combine hotel,
airfare and rental car at a cheaper rate.
And remember the days and times that
are typically cheaper to fly – Tuesdays,
Wednesdays and Saturdays if you’re willing to fly early in the morning or late in
the evening. Also, if the package deal is
good enough, you may opt to keep the
flight and rental car components while
checking at the last minute with a hotel
you’d rather stay at to see if you can get a
rock-bottom rate that might make trading up worth your while.

Know when to use travel agents: A good
travel agent can be a great money saver,
particularly for lengthy or complex trips.
It’s OK to compare prices yourself, but
consult a travel agent if you are going
to remote destinations – they’ll know
the territory, and if you have to make
changes, they might be able to help you
do so without paying a lot of extra money.
Also, don’t forget to check currency rates.
Check your telecommunications
options: Check with your wireless company to make sure your phone works
where you’re going – that’s particularly
relevant if you’re going overseas. Ask if
your phone will work overseas and what
the potential costs will be for roaming
charges, which can quickly skyrocket.
Also, you might go online to see if your
overseas airport rents cellphones at a daily
or weekly charge or if it might be worth
using a disposable phone you can buy
when you get there.
Check on car insurance: For domestic
trips, double check whether your own car
insurance policy is likely to pick up the
bill if you crash your rental car. For overseas trips, check with your rental agencies
as well as your credit card company to see
what insurance options you have. Don’t
think only in terms of accidents. Think
about blown transmissions in small towns
with only one mechanic who doesn’t
speak English. Also, if you’re driving to
Canada or Latin America in your own
car, be very sure you have adequate coverage required in every country. You might
have to buy supplemental coverage.
Consider travel insurance: There is
insurance coverage available for travelers who face sudden cancellations as well
as medical needs. Trip cancellation can
reimburse you for non-refundable costs
in the event of things like an illness for
you or a family member that causes you
to cancel your trip. Look into what your
25
current health insurance covers at your
destination, so that you can understand
your risk exposure and weigh it against
the cost of supplemental insurance. It’s
important to realize that health insurance
issues crop up on domestic trips as well as
those overseas – for instance, your health
insurer may not cover claims in other
parts of the country. Always check. Also,
if you’re on a business trip, make sure
your company health plan will cover you
in an emergency.
Prevent theft at home and abroad:
Photocopy your driver’s license and
passports and keep the originals with
your valuables in the hotel safe. Also,
don’t forget to hold your mail and pay all
your bills before leaving town.

Blu Ray anyone?
So you think it’s time to
dump the old worn out
DVD player and enter the
Blu Ray world?????…
Before going out to plunk
down $300.00 of your hard
earned money, consider this…
First, unless your TV is “1080p” capable
then you will not benefit from everything
that Blu Ray has to offer. Most LCD
TVs (42” and above) and some plasma
TV (also 42” and above) sold in the past
year are capable of 1080p resolution and
are therefore Blue ray compatible. If you
have a TV that offers (only) 720p or
1080i resolution then you’ll not be able to
take full advantage of the Blu Ray technology.
Next, you’ll need to purchase or rent a
Blu Ray DVD. Although your existing
DVDs will work on the Blu Ray DVD
player, they will provide no better experience than the old DVD player that you’ve
replaced. There are quite a few titles of
Blue Ray available although expect to pay
more for these if you’re going to buy the
movie.
Oh, then there’s the business of an
HDMi cable. That’s a digital
cable that will connect the TV
to the Blu Ray DVD player.
You’ve got to have one of
those for Blue Ray to
do what Blu ray does.
Finally, know
this…….there is
newer technology
on the horizon.
Imagine being able to watch the movie
of your choice without having to go to
the mailbox much less the movie store.
Picture being able to choose your movie
from the comfort of your easy chair. Well
imagine no longer…. The technology is
here.
Most Blu Ray DVD players have an Ethernet jack built in allowing the player to
integrate with your home computer network. In particular, the Samsung & LG
models you can now stream movies into
the player and watch them on your TV!
Emerging technology at its finest!
The bottom line is this. The media world
is fast changing. There will come a time
when software (DVDs, CDs) will go the
way of the old record albums (remember
those?) and everything will be streamed
into a hard drive or player of some type.
Unless you want to be on the bleeding
edge, you might consider dusting off the
old DVD player and waiting a year or
so until the streaming technology has
advanced to a point where virtually any
movie can be viewed by the simple press
of a few buttons on the remote.
