Coffee Calendar


[crackle-crackle-ssssss=pfffffttt!] … we interrupt the technology ramblings AGAIN to bring you EVEN MORE mildly shameless promotions of friend and family projects ….

My brother-in-law Ricardo Levin Morales is an artist in Minneapolis who has roots deep in the fertile coffee-bearing soil of Puerto Rico.   His Coffee Calendar is a vibrant, thoughtful reflection on the history and culture of coffee over the past few hundred years and would be an excellent gift for any coffee enthusiast.    My wife has been showing the calendar to some coffee shops here in Southern Oregon and the response has been great.
Check out the Coffee Calendar online and if you like it … order a few for Christmas Gifts. 

Pipo Nguyen-Duy is another artist I know with a unique and provocative vision of the world.  Check out some of Pipo’s work here:   Pipo teaches at Oberlin College in Ohio but lives here in Oregon and is the top player at our  Ashland Oregon Table Tennis club.

Coffee Calendar


My brother-in-law Ricardo is an artist in Minneapolis, MN.  He’s got a neat new project he’s been working on for some time called “The Coffee Calendar“.   For Coffee or Calendar enthusiasts this will make a neat christmas gift, and you can order it directly from his Coffee Calendar Website over at TheCoffeeCalendar.com

Oh, yes, this post is in part an attempt to get the coffee calendar *correctly listed* over at Google as the top result for the query “Coffee Calendar” where it now shows as third.   I suppose Google could argue that the coffee shop calendars they have should be at the top, but I’d say Ricardo’s Coffee Calendar is more relevant.   

Of course, relevance is, in part, defined by the linking structure of the web which in this case I’m slightly manipulating by this blog post.  But it’s for a good cause and I think even the inimitable Matt Cutts over at Google would agree this is white hat SEO which helps internet users find the Coffee Calendar they’ve been looking for for so long.   

Note:  This is NOT a pay to post post about coffee calendars.  Would it be less relevant if it was a pay to post post?    Yes, but clearly it would have some relevance about coffee and calendars nonetheless.   How much relevance?    Google makes all those decisions and they are mysterious algorithmic magic, so don’t ask me.
