Brown Dog Java!

Hey, what's happening...is that green?

Getting there...

...is half the fun, so they say.  We were actually digging around a bit in the dirt today!  

One thing is for certain, change is the only thing that's constant.  We have some people moving geographically out of our lives in the next couple of weeks.  We're starting to feel a bit abandoned, up here in Pennsylvania.  It's also making my husband and me restless - which is a good thing.  It's not good to become too content when you have a business you're trying to grow, and growth is what we're working on all the time.  Whether it's our relationship, Brown Dog Java, or our garden - we must keep growing!

This past weekend and the upcoming weekend (April 10-12), I'll be opering one of the follow spotlights for a show for Stage Right-"The Musical of Musicals, The Musical."  It's not as easy as you might think, but it's not terribly difficult either.  Just fun.  If you're in the Pittsburgh area, come on out and see the show and have a cup of our coffee, Brown Dog Java is served there!

Here comes the sun!

Anyway...the calendar says it's spring

March 30, 2014

It’s the same for everyone, so I don’t need to tell you that it seems like winter just won’t let go.  This morning, March 30, there was a coating of snow…what the heck?

 Anyway, good news is last week we had a wonderful show for one of our distributors in York, PA, (one of our favorite towns). We had lots of great attention and feedback about our coffee, new packaging and promotions. 

 We stayed at The Yorktowne Hotel – an historic place, which is a member of Historic Inns of America.  As you can tell by the photo of the door down the hall from us, if you stay in this hotel it’s something like being seated on the emergency exit of an airliner, and you must agree to get the axe and pail and fight a fire if one should break out…just kidding.  It’s a very interesting, (in a good way), and pretty hotel, and we would not dream of staying anywhere else in York.  The staff are extremely friendly and helpful.  Silly us, we left our laptop in our car.  We notified the front desk, and the parking valet brought it to our room.  How nice!! 

Color, we need color!

12 Days 'Til Spring - March 9, 2014

Ok, ok - so I've been really neglecting this page.  I know. I depressed myself by keeping a countdown to summer since nearly the beginning of the year.  I won't go on about how dreadful and long this winter has been (although I'd really like to). 

So, I've decided that this year I will not see spring as just a prelude to summer.  No, I will savor each and every chilly but with a little warmth behind it breeze, every little bud, every little robin hop and baby bunny sprint.  Everything.  I'm noticing that 45 degrees feels like heaven.

What's been going on with Brown Dog Java, you ask?  Next week we have a really big distributor show, and it's been the busiest winter in our history.  We are so grateful!  

ATTENTION! Pittsburgh Friends! Our coffee is in Ferri's in Murrysville-we love it!
