January 25, is National Irish Coffee Day & Opposite Day

Quote of the Day
“Only Irish & Coffee & provides in a single glass all four essential food groups: alcohol, caffeine, sugar, fat.”
Alex Levine

Let’s look at the luck of the Irish coffee and see what’s in it, hopefully drinking it will not only wake you up but bring some luck! The history behind the drink of Irish Coffee
http://whatscookingamerica.net/Beverage/IrishCoffee.htm

Boy if you’re in hospitality, times can be hard when business is slow and a little luck is what is needed.
Sell Irish Coffee with whip cream on top and top it off with some favor toppings to be creative. Have chocolate chips, mints, chocolate shavings, cinnamon, marshmallows, toffee, maple, chocolate syrup, or anything that you can come up with, give it a try to see what happens. You need to be different from your competition and try different things to draw new customers and to promote to your regular customers. Everyone drinks coffee and most people like to try new thinks with coffee just for a change, and be opposite of what everyone else is doing.
It’s opposite day!

Closing Quotes
“Whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to go shopping”.
Bo Derek

“I went window shopping today! I bought four windows”.
Tommy Cooper

I don’t know about you, but I caught a cold the day of Christmas and then my furnace breaks down on the same day going down to 65 Celsius before getting fixed. Its been a crazy week prior to Christmas where my windshield was shatter from falling frozen ice snow off a transport truck that hit my driver side which was so bad I had to get it replace the next day! They say things happen in three’s and it sure does, making me look like a fruitcake being in the wrong place at the wrong time. 

Therefore I’ll be resting up from the last couple of days after Christmas and so should you. Lets all have a lazy day and don’t do notthing because the next 3 things that happen will be good news as we head into the New Year. 🤔

“The virtue of anyone or anything is solely in our perspective. See gold, and there is gold; see lead and there is lead. If you see this thistle as a thorny nuisance, then it is a weed. If you appreciate its bright pink bloom, then it is a flower. It becomes what you name it. The power is in your choice, your perspective, your speaking.”
