While most families have two working partners, there are still spouses who focus their daily energies on family. Raising children is perhaps the most difficult occupation of all. The day-to-day “to-do” lists can be time-consuming and overwhelming. While the job is rewarding, there is often little financial benefit. Still, many spouses will give up their careers to stay at home with their children. Suddenly, a marriage ends in divorce and a working or non-working spouse is left wondering how he or she will make ends meet. That is where we come in at the Law Office of Chow & Losinski. Neither spouse should have to experience financial distress just because a marriage is ending.
Interlocking pavers turn your hardscape surfaces into a stunning pattern of your choosing. Give rise to a Roman villa, a dry streambed, a modern piece of art—whatever your fancy dictates. Our stone and concrete pavers come manufactured in all kinds of profiles, from prim-and-proper square-edge pieces to sensual curves to jagged, naturalistic plates. They also vary by color and texture, from perfectly smooth to rippled and rugged.
The aesthetic possibilities, in other words, are just about endless, but interlocking pavers recommend themselves beyond their design opportunities. They create strong, resilient, and long-lasting pavement that puts poured concrete to shame. Installing interlocking pavers saves you money in the long run, as maintenance is minimal and any repairs you do need to make tend to be cheaper than remediating cracked or uneven concrete. In short, interlocking pavers are a win-win proposition!
The first thoughts that come to mind about San Francisco and the Bay Area are historic: the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, steep hills, and the eclectic architecture. Freas Plastering Company, headquartered in Concord, California, has been an important part of constructing the interesting architecture, which makes San Francisco and its surroundings unique.
Don Freas started his union institutional and commercial plastering company in 1990. “It was a dream of mine that came together in 1990,” says Don Freas, president. Freas’ desire to open his own plastering construction company dates back to the early 1980s. Freas began his plastering vocation in 1969, serving a four-year union plastering apprenticeship in San Francisco. “Before I began my company, I worked primarily downtown San Francisco for 20 years for several major union plastering and drywall contractors,” says Freas. During most of his years as an employee, Freas also had the opportunity to work on projects as a supervisor in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area, which includes the economically well-developed Alameda, San Jose, and Contra Costa Counties. “I got into different management roles for larger companies, and I did that up until I started my own business,” he explains. Due to his experience on numerous types of commercial projects and his leadership roles, Freas felt he had the expertise and desire to begin his own plastering construction company.

My fitness journey has evolved and expanded over the years. I started about 7 years ago as a Yoga teacher and then became a personal trainer. Being active has always been important to me, I started dancing when I was 12 years old, I surfed, I was part of the dance team and judo team in college. Unfortunately, I had two different accidents that lead to having surgery on my knee and shoulder. Since then I have been on a quest to find the best way I can keep my body strong and with less pain. In this journey, I learned that being fit is much more than just going to the gym, following a program, getting strong, and getting in shape, it’s a state of awareness. Not being sick does not mean you’re well, and being well doesn’t mean you’re fit, becoming your fittest self is a choice. Every day we make choices that can deter or strengthen our minds, our bodies, and our souls. Through fitness, I have seen what amazing things the human body is capable of doing. How could I pass on that? I want to be the fittest me I can be till the day I die and inspire others to do so till then.
I work mostly with women because I want to empower them to feel comfortable in the weight room. However, I have worked with many different populations such as teenagers, men, breast cancer survivors, prenatal and older adults. My approach to fitness is functional, constantly varied, intense, and it can be adjusted to all kinds of fitness levels. My goal as a trainer is to help my clients find a way to live a happier healthier life however that may look like for them.
