Our Segment on "My GTN Showcase"

Well it's been awhile since I've been on the blog, but I thought it was time to give an update! A lot has been happening with Tami and I trying to get the new business started and we opened the doors on Monday February 11th. Since we're open 5-1/2 days a week there hasn't been a whole lot of free time for us, besides we weren't able to get an internet hook-up at the shop until this past Monday so we had to sacrifice the use of our home wifi system to power the shop. That meant that we were completely cut off from the internet when we were away from work! We'll we're back up and running again and thing are going well at the shop! We're planning a Grand Opening for Saturday April 27th from 10am - 2pm, so if you're in the area stop by or shop at 3232 SW 35th Blvd, Gainesville, FL 32608 to get in on some of the fun! Oh, what's this about "MY GTN Showcase"? Well it's a local TV program that highlights interesting/unique businesses and they came and filmed a segment that just aired on the local NBC station early this morning. It will be airing on WGFL CBS-4, WNBW NBC-9, and MY GTN-11 over the next couple of months at various times throughout each week. Here's a link to the YouTube video of our segment: Big Frog on My GTN Showcase I hope you enjoy it!

My Little Car got a Makeover!

I might have mentioned that we've been busy trying to get our new business going. ;-) Well I decided that if I'm going to be traveling around doing marketing and sales that I should also have a car that reflects a little about the business. So here are some before and after pictures:
I think she looks great and apparantly she did too, because I noticed a little pep in her step on the way home! ;-)

I'm Still Here!

I just wanted to let any of you who still check my blog know that I'm still here! We've been busy moving, traveling, settling in, and trying to get our own business started so we've been a bit preoccupied. Hopefully in the next few weeks we can get back to some sort of a regular schedule and I'll get caught up on my blogging! Hang in there and I'll be back real soon!

Mango Margaritas: Medicine or Myth?

So tropical storm Debby decided to visit us for the next couple of days. This is a good thing considering that she's only supposed to produce 15-20mph winds and bring several inches of much needed rain to our area! However, for some of us the lack of sunshine for 2 to 3 days can become an issue. So what can you do in this situation? How about a batch of Mango Margaritas? Looking up the health beneifits of Mangos helps clear the air a bit, let me explain: Mangos provide 25% of your daily needs of vitamin A and 76% of your daily vitamin C. They are also a good source of fiber! So when you combine these with fresh limes, and Tequila you rack up your vitamin C to 100% and get some stress relief too! Now if you add the benifits of a home brewed (unpasturized) beer as a chaser, you brng vitamins B and B-complex into the picture! Then if you drink these magic elixers on a sunny day, unlike today, you also get some internal vitamin D production! So as you can see understanding the health benefits of drinking Mango Margaritas really is as easy as A, B, C, oh and D! ;-)
