Here Are My Grandson's T-Shirts For Sale



Hi Everyone,

There was a post a couple of weeks back about my grandson, who lived with us, dying of SIDS. This is a disease that has never gotten its correct due with regard to funding, education, and understanding. My family and I are deeply committed to finding the cause, and hopefully the prevention of this crippling, devastating problem.

I know that some people say that it is only 1700-1800 babies a year that pass from SIDS, but think about how many lives are affected by that number? It is a lot greater than you think!

I still to this day, 7 years later, walk around town and  see people whispering about, "oh that was the grandfather of Kaitlyn's baby". Believe me when I tell you, it is not paranoia! It is a crushing experience.

Anyway, these T-shirts are $17.99 plus shipping & handling. That can be $3 or $7 depending on where you live. If you would like to purchase these shirts(we have every size imaginable), just send me an email @ jleary60@hotmail.com and I will give you the instructions.

Again, I appreciate you following this blog and I have a couple of great articles to publish over the next 4 days! Talk soon. Joe Leary

P.S. In your Description on the Email PLEASE reference: Brady Leary SIDS FOUNDATION!
thanks again.

How To Roast Your Own Coffee At Home!

How To Roast Your Own Coffee At Home!How to roast your own coffee at home! This is a question I have been asked by many people, especially lately. I haven't been actively updating the blog lately because this is one area of my return to the coffee business that I have really been working on.
First of all, coming from a commercial coffee roasting plant, with over 25 years of experience, this question was one I really had to think about. I was thinking, is it even possible to roast a quality cup of coffee at home and secondly, is it worth your time, effort and expense?
Well the answer is a resounding, ABSOLUTELY! Now, with Black Friday right around the corner, I thought this would be a fantastic time to talk a little about the process, the equipment required and some of the nuances you must eventually master to experience the Freshest cup of coffee you will EVER drink!
Now for me, I was lucky enough to pick whatever coffee or blend from my plant on a daily basis, throw a pound in my 1…

Has The Coffee Roasting Business In The U.S. Taken Its Last J.A.B.?
Unless you have been hiding in an unmarked oil well over the past few months, you already must have realized there has been a significant change in the coffee roasting industry. The $40 billion U.S. market has another bully on the block and watch out Nestle, these gentleman are playing for all the marbles.#entrepreneurship

Coffee beans, which is the second largest traded commodity in the world is apparently a target of one of the richest families in Europe. The Reimann family has not so quietly, been actively targeting U.S roasters and using a “price is not an issue" formula!



The cash is there, and they are clearly not afraid to be buying based on future earnings projections. This isn't a strange occurrence for J.A.B., they purchased D.E. Master Blenders, Douwe Egbert for a cool $10 billion. Many analysts refer to this transaction as, "a pure play coffee company".

Their coffee portfolio no…

The Future Of The Coffee Business in The U.S.

So where do you think the coffee business is going in the U.S.? As I have written in previous posts, there has been major consolidation within this industry over the past few years. Long overdue by any industry standard.

Let's take a look at the factors, roadblocks, and issues this business has, moving forward in the U.S. marketplace. It is far from unique as many industries are in the same boat. But where is the next big breakthrough? Will there be another Keurig? Well no one has a crystal ball, but there are things happening, and most of them, like the 1 cup k cup machines are not on a lot of people's radar yet. But, for someone like me, who has spent more than half of their lives in this industry, I have to believe that will come along.

Again, that next big thing in my mind is still only half the equation! Consolidation of this industry is still in the really early stages, as far as I'm concerned. But, as I sit here an…
