With this Saskatchewan winter feeling like it may never end, and the coming of spring taking on an almost mythic, bygone-age status, our boss "Java Jack" has found the best way to cope is with a liberal dose of Maui island life: sun, sand, and drinks with little umbrellas in them. Being the thoughtful guy that he is, Jack sent along the morning view from his room for the Java staff to…
