Great Coffee from the Unseen Bean in Boulder, CO

A few years ago when on one of my major coffee kicks a good friend of mine passed me a bag of coffee from a local roaster. The name of the company on the bag was The Unseen Bean. I thought it was interesting and wanted to hear the story. My buddy proceeded to tell me an amazing story about a coffee roaster out of boulder who did all his roasting by audio and smell due to the fact that he was blind. I eagerly took that bag home and created many cups of oh so good coffee. I since have been to the Unseen Bean location in Boulder and enjoyed a cup or two there as well. I was out the other night and had the chance to meet Andy, a gentlemen starting his own roasterery called, “I have a Bean“. His roastery also has a cool story and I was reminded of the Unseen Bean of which I proceeded to share with Andy. He then sent me this video the next day of which I really enjoyed! Have a look and then have a cup!

Use has_term() in a basic conditional statement – check for category of custom post type

Seem to always forget how to set up conditionals when working with custom post types. Throwing together a quick post for personal reference down the road. So basically if you have a custom post type with a category this is how you can setup a conditional statement. If you would rather get a great explanation from the codex then you can read that here… http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/has_term

Here is the code as I used it within my template files…

if (has_term('custom post category name','taxonomy')) {
// do something
} else {
// do something else
}

Nascar updates their website

If you have not picked up on it I am a huge motorsports fan. Last night I was doing some of my weekly browsing around for motorsport news and ran into a pleasant surprise. After something like 3 or 4 years nascar.com has been updated. They have updated their look and feel and gone to a more single long page for their home page. The site is much more visual and I am excited to poke around. As this pertains to my daily work and interest I always love to see how major players attack a problem or a site redesign. At first look I am not stoked on all the design, UI and UX decisions but overall I am enjoying the new look, function and feel. I wish I had a comparison screen shot for you… but I don’t. Have a look and let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
