Coffee Facts

It was the Dutch who introduced the coffee plant to the rest of the world.  They brought the first coffee plant from Mocha in Yemen to Holland in 1616.  The first cultivation of a coffee plant was in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) in 1658.

A Cup of Joe (U.S. Navy)
spacer (1K)
Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels, scandalized by reports of drunkenness aboard ship, issued an order in 1919 which banned not only the serving of wine in the wardroom but also any consumption of alcohol aboard ship.  Daniels, a teetotaler, decreed that only coffee or tea should be served. This was not a popular order, and the sailors promptly dubbed a cup of coffee
 as a "
cup of joe."
From 1858 until 1955 the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Army operated their own coffee roasting plants.

"Route 66 Roger" 
Roger Naylor
 

Just when you think people don’t make things by hand anymore, Roger Naylor proves them wrong.  Roger’s “Made in Arizona” story introduces us to a hat maker, boot maker, Navajo rug weaver and saddle maker.  They’re still doing things like they always have and in this day and age, that’s a comfort.  It should come as no surprise that you’ll find a couple of these craftspeople right off Route 66, where the old ways are preserved.
Made In Arizona

Roger's New Year's Resolution: "I resolve to rack up the miles touting my book "Arizona Kicks on Route 66" that will be out in the spring".

Beijing 6,381 Miles

spacer (1K)
 A lively group from Shanghai General Motors in China visited in style.  Escorted by Jim Conkle, Route 66 TV, they arrived in 14 new Cadillacs.  After much needed espresso and many photos, a "tow truck" escort led them out of town to continue their
Route 66 journey.

From Seligman the next stop was the Grand Canyon Caverns Motel Room, where they enjoyed a tour of the world famous Cavern Suite which is 220 feet below ground.

Arizona Centennial
 
  The Arizona Territory became the State of Arizona on February 14th, 1912 (8 years after Seligman Sundries was established). 

Achieving statehood brought national attention to a rugged, colorful and fairly undiscovered area of the country.  As the 48th entry into the Union, Arizona was sparsely populated -- only 200,000 residents despite its large land mass.

 One hundred years later it is home to 6.5 million people.

1904 - Seligman Sundries Established
1912 - Arizona granted Statehood
1926 - Route 66 Designated

Pieces of Time
 
New years come and new years go,
Pieces of time all in a row.

As we live our life, each second and minute,

We know we’re privileged to have you in it.

Our appreciation never ends

For our greatest blessings: our family and friends.
Happy New Year!

Coffee Facts

Turkish bridegrooms were once required to make a promise during their wedding ceremonies to always provide their new wives with coffee.  If they failed to do so, it was grounds for divorce.

Valentines Day
 
February 14th is Valentine's Day, a popular holiday in the U.S.



 One of the earliest Valentines was sent in 1415 AD by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife during his imprisonment in the Tower of London. The card is now preserved in the British Museum.
(Information from holidayspot.com)

Pictured is Arron Philips from The U.K.  We await Arron's return visit to Seligman in a few months with his wife.


Enjoy our Valentine video, featuring Arron and some Route 66 friends we've met in Seligman:

Coffee Facts

In London in 1674, a group of women formed Women's Petition Against Coffee (WPAC).  They complained that their men were always at the coffee houses and not at home when needed.

Not a problem at our coffee bar.

Uniting the Americas
 
From November 1, 2010 to November 29, 2011, German and Claudia from Tucaman, Argentina fulfilled German's 30-year dream.
These 2 adventurous souls traveled from the tip of South America to the northern tip of Alaska and back.  And yes, they did this on a BMW motorcycle.  According to German, "During our trip,
we visited 20 countries, took 23,700 photos and had
millions of experiences".
 In 2015, their goal is to travel around the world.




 Pictured is German and Claudia as they visited us in Seligman last spring - heading North to Alaska. You can read more about their journey on their facebook page "Mundoenmoto"

 Some Traveling Music 

Thomas Bulefinger, a visitor from Munich, Germany, updated us on the progress of his band, The Square Hippies, and their rendition and video of Route 66.  Their lively musical performance
captured the essence of the classic version. 
We would like to thank Thomas for his visit and letting us
 preview his version of the popular "Route 66" song.

Arizona Centennial (1912 - 2012)

Seligman is a community that prides itself on staying true to the past and keeping alive the lure of Historic Route 66.  In fact, it was in Seligman that the move to preserve Route 66 began.  Eventually those actions helped to garner the designation of Route 66 as a historic highway.

 The Pattiwagon

Straight from Cut Bank, Montana, Bob and Dee delivered
a copy of their monthly newsletter, "The Pattiwagon," to us.
We appreciated Bob and Dee's visit and also the sharing
 of their entertaining newsletter.   One quote from their newsletter sums up their attitude - "Look to the future, because
 that is where you will spend the rest of your life".

Orlando - Las Vegas - Seligman


The Argentinians are back.  Always an enthusiastic group
 on Route 66, we look forward to their visit.  When they travel,
 they really put on the miles.  From Orlando Bike week, they went to Las Vegas and then rode a special trip to Seligman.

Safe travels to Maximiano and his friends from

Lujon, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Arizona Centennial (1912 - 2012)

Arizona boasts the longest stretch of Route 66 still in existence between Chicago and Los Angeles.  Beginning just west of Ash Fork, it separates from I-40 at exit 139 (Crookton Road) and becomes AZ 66 at Seligman.  It continues westward from Seligman through Peach Springs and the Hualapai Reservation to
Kingman.  West of Kingman, the road cuts through the Black Mountains, taking you through the old mining town of Oatman.

Aussies

When Genevieve, accompanied by her family and friends,
visited from Sydney, Australia, we knew from the start
that we had met an entertaining group.  We couldn't offer them Vegemite, so Genevieve and friends walked away with a scorpion sucker and malts.  Seligman was just one stop on this group's 33-day venture.  If you see 5 Aussies dancing down Route 66,
that's them.  We were not charged for their entertainment.
They probably won't charge you either.

Russians on Route 66
 

A hearty Route 66 welcome to our Russian travelers. 
From St. Petersburg, Russia, Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.)
riders made Seligman one of their stops during their travels
in March. Coming from a city in Russia of 5 million people
to the town of Seligman of 500 residents provided
quite a contrast for them.
Thanks to Mikhail, German, Eugene
and your group (pictured on the right). Two days later,
we also met Vladimir and Elena pictured below.

Sunrise at the Grand Canyon
 
Sunrise non-denominational services are conducted at the Grand Canyon on April 8th, Easter Sunday.  The location is the scenic Mather Point inside the Grand Canyon National Park. 
This tradition started in 1902 when circuit riders rode up from Prescott and conducted the services.  Remember it is likely
that the temperatures will be below freezing
for the sunrise event.
Happy Easter.

The Big Dig

The Arizona Grotto Association of professional cave explorers continues to dig towards a new major cavern room at Grand Canyon Caverns (our Route 66 neighbor to the West). 
The “BIG DIG” is now far enough away from the tour trails
to allow micro-blasting of large rocks which greatly accelerates
their progress towards a major new discovery.
Tour participants often see their amazing explorers coming in
and out of the dig area.  Their Explorer Tour are taken back
to the security vault gate to see first hand what has been
in the works for more than 3 years.
For updates go to: Grand Canyon Caverns

 Trace and John

Straight from Memphis, Tennessee we had the pleasure of visiting with Trace Hallowell and his son, John.  Trace is no stranger to Route 66 and is one of the biggest supporters on the road.  All smiles, Trace informed us that the two logos he created for two Seligman icons, Angel's Barber Shop and the Delgadillo Snow Cap,  were recently honored with Silver Addy Awards at an American Advertising Federation ceremony in Memphis.

According to Trace..."My first trip through Seligman was in the summer of 1968.  We have designed trademarks for brands all around the country – even around the world – but creating marks for true icons of Route 66 is an enormous thrill.”  Trace has made a great contribution to keeping Route 66 "alive".

Colombia

They promised to bring Juan Valdez on their next trip.
  We will be waiting for his arrival.

Isle of Guernsey

The Island of Guernsey is an island of 25 square miles 30 west of Normandy and 75 miles south of England.  Glyn, a Guernsey resident, thought that our cattle were a striking contrast to their "Golden Guernsey" cattle which produce a unique rich colored milk.  Glyn was enjoying his "Route 66 Experience".  I am sure he will tell everyone on the Isle of Guernsey about Route 66.

Tattoos on 66
  
Route 66 is popular and so are tattoos.  When the two are combined with one of the biggest supporters of Route 66, you have Ron Jones proudly displaying 108 tattoos of Route 66 on his torso.  Ron is an iconic roamer of the road who gives "The Mother Road" character not seen anywhere else in the world.  Three years
ago, Ron was awarded "Person of the Year on Route 66". 
Recently, we talked to Ron long enough to ensure that he stayed
in Seligman for the night on his trip from Oklahoma
to the car show in Laughlin, Nevada.

Jay and Kat
 
Jay and Kat are two happy travelers we met in Seligman in April. Driving from Florida, they wanted to get in the nostalgic mood on their way to Las Vegas to get married with Elvis.  What better way then to drive down Route 66.  A large contingent of family and friends were meeting them in Vegas to help them celebrate at the Little Church of the West on April 14th. 
Viva Route 66, viva Las Vegas and viva Jay & Kat!

Our friend, Bree Reeves, from Las Vegas agrees that "the presence of Elvis is alive and well on Route 66". 
Visit Bree at www.ministerinvegas.com  for marriage information.

Special Recognition
 
Karin and Nico, from the Netherlands, special friends who often visit the U.S. and Route 66, recently shared information about a special award Nico received as a firefighter. 
The Queen of The Netherlands gave special recognition
to Nico for 32 years as a firefighter, and he is now a
member of the order of Orange Nassau.
We are proud to know Karin and Nico.

The wooden shoes (klompe) and other memorabilia that they've given us are proudly displayed in the Sundries.

Route 66 Rider 

How about revisiting the old truck stop from the 50's that had been operated by Eric and Lynne Bailey in Flagstaff?  The outside now looks different, but the inside is the original structure.
The new building (2009) that currently houses Eaglerider Flagstaff was built around the old building. The good news is
  the inside is intact with the original tables, gas pumps,
and unique collectibles.

66 Happenings - Grand Canyon Caverns
   

For the past year Grand Canyon Caverns on Route 66 has been the site of extensive Paranormal Research by Orange County Ghosts and Legends Tours.  They have found extensive paranormal activity at the Caverns.  For those who work at Grand Canyon Caverns, this comes as no surprise.  They have been experiencing many things associated with ghosts dating back to almost the year 1900.

The Ghost and Legend professionals have assisted the Caverns in preparing a tour celebrating the “spirits" whose presence is felt  strongly almost daily.

The Paranormal Experience will be offered daily at 6pm.

Pictured on the right is the renowned comedian, Gallagher. 
When we brought the camera out, the recently retired
Gallagher "lit up" in one of his favorite poses. 
We hope to see him again on Route 66.

A Long Drive to Austria 
 
This pair of Austrians returned after visiting Seligman two years ago.  When they buy mementos to remember their trip, they go all out.  Two years ago it was a Classic GTO.  This year it is a clean 1965 Thunderbird that they will drive to the East Coast and then ship back to Austria.

Carry The Flame  
 
The 10th annual Navajo-Hopi Honor run stopped in Seligman. They were on their way to the Navajo reservation.
Their mission: "Remembering our Fallen Soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice and their families, showing respect and honor for  those who have served and are now serving, always in our hearts and never forgotten."

 Slovenia

Darja and Dusan from Slovenia arrived with our first motorcycle group from Slovenia.  This had a special meaning to me,
with my heritage (Grandfather) being Slovenian. 
We now proudly display above our coffee bar the Slovenian
flag that they generously presented to us.

Brazil


Brazilians definitely know how to enjoy themselves. Their energy and enthusiasm really brings life to an event.  Harley tours from Brazil did just that.  Maybe one of these days we will learn
 to speak Portuguese.

Germans

These hearty Germans came riding into town with their leader, Jurgen Meyer.  After enjoying coffee and a brief rest while
listening to local guitarist/singer Joe Clark perform, they
were back on their bikes, heading to their next destination.
We look forward to visits by Jurgen and U.S A.Biker Tours.

Armstrong Olives

Mike and Cindy Armstrong are the classic American success story. What better place to tell us their history than on Route 66. 
Everyone had told Mike that he could not turn his olive trees into a business.  In 1970, Mike began experimenting with cured olives in two barrels.  End result - today Armstrong Olives produces 58 varieties of stuffed and marinated olives shipped all over the U.S. and Canada.  And they are delicious.  We can say that with all honesty since Mike and Cindy gave us several varieties of olives to sample before leaving Seligman.
Traveling on Route 66 was Mike and Cindy's choice of "get away" trips.  We are glad we had the chance to meet them.

Three Amigos

Adding some local color to the 2012 Fun Run was Dale Butel from Australia, John Springs from California and John's brother-in-law from Ohio.  Dale and John are regulars on "The Route" and also present for anything Route 66.  It is always a pleasure to see such staunch supporters that make up the Route 66 Community.

Polish
 
  One of the most lively visitors on Route 66 is Jarosław Frankowski, also known as "Franek".  His Polish motorcyle groups are always
in for a treat with this high energy "live wire". 
Franek's creativity on film has resulted in some very unique images of Route 66.  His facebook page has some of his
photos:  Franek Films.

Elvis at Work
 
When Elvis Tribute Artist, Arron Philips, visited u,s we put him to work.  With his assistance, we placed his signed shirt prominently on display hanging from our ceiling.  We also enjoyed listening
to his new CD.  Arron and his wife, Pauline, were on their
way to Las Vegas after their visit to Graceland and a
performance enroute. Their fondness for Seligman
resulted in spending the night in our historic town.
Listen to Arron's Music:

Going for the World Record
 
Jenny Chant, from the U.K., visited us with knitting needles
in hand. Her hobby, which started in 2003, has turned into a massive undertaking.  Her goal is to knit over 27 miles of
pink scarf and increase the awareness of all cancers. 
Jenny has inspired over 300 k
Knitting her way across Route 66, we're so glad she stopped in Seligman and that we had the chance to meet her.

Trikes - 2012 West End Fun Run

Adding color and joining in the community for a weekend of saturating the town were the BTW (Brothers of the Third Wheel) visiting in Seligman May 25th - May 28th.  Zipping through town all weekend, they provided everyone with colorful photos and a chance to see their handy work on their custom machines.
It was a great event with some truly great people.
Pictured on the right is Scottie, "Natvman".
