We Retire Another Mug

I have so many mugs, I have to keep them stored through out the house…but the place I keep the retired mugs is special. The ‘Wall of Fame’ is in my little music room, surrounded by guitars, hundreds of old LPs and, of course, other mugs. Today, we share with you my ‘University Club’ mug as it is welcomed by previous all-star mugs. As you can see from the picture, it is starting to lose some of its detail from too many trips through the ole dishwasher.

Mug - University Club

The University Club is where I use to stay when I was in Washington DC. No, I am not a member nor will I ever be one but thanks to a friend of the company, we were allowed to stay there and it was always a treat. Having breakfast next to the majority leader of the Senate or the Chief Justice of the Supreme court can be a bit surreal but…the good news is, the coffee tasted the same.

The Home Stretch!

As you well know, coffee is good every single day but when the ‘months have ‘R’s…it is a bit better in our opinion. That said, we are in the home stretch until that happens. Until then, have another cuppa joe and enjoy the new ‘Mug of the Moment’.  This mug was purchased at a local ‘dollar store’ on a last minute, solo camping trip…in the fall!

Palace Station - Las Vegas

The Palace Station was where I stayed on my second and third trips to Vegas, waaaay back in the day.   I remember the room rate was $40.00.  Since I will be heading back there soon, the city, not Palace Station, I am selecting this as the ‘Mug of the Moment’.  Odd thing is that this is the only Vegas mug I have out of at least 20 trips there.

Never Say Never

On our favorite blog about Business Development, Sales and Marketing (Building New Business there is an interesting post entitled ‘I Love It When I Am Wrong’.  (Click Here To Read) The post talks about lessons learned when one is proven wrong.

Well, chalk up a ‘lesson learned’ for us here at ‘The Three O’clock Pot’.  When the Single Cup’ brewers came out, their pricing alone as well as the pricing of the small ‘single cups’ quickly put this new technology into the ‘There Is No Way The Coffee Can Be That Good’ category.

That said, for this coffee lover…I have been proven wrong.  I now have one in the kitchen and one on the way for the office.   Holy cow do I love this machine and the coffee is makes!

As soon as I can ink and endorsement deal, the name of the machine will remain a mystery, publicly that is.  If you are curious, let me know and I will share.  In the mean time, I believe I shall have another cup.
