What a day.  Well, let me briefly state events.  Today we began with our Monday school lunch program for Creating Moments in Learning, Huber Heights, Ohio daycare/childcare.  Our number of children grew more this Monday than last week.  That is a positive thing!  I don't have time to post all the photos, but we focused on fresh fruits, whole grains, homemade chips and salad!  It was a fun day for the kids tummy.  No sooner than I had completed our childcare lunches, our current City Council Members:  Jan Vargo, Lu Dale & Karen Kaleps stopped by for lunch.  Well, I thought it would just be lunch be we had an amazing time and discussed putting a public service announcement outlining their accomplishments and goals for Huber Heights, in this coming election, November 3, 2015 under Cafe 125 TV (The Reality TV).  We are just trying to provide an equal platform to both parties as we offered to Team Huber.  This will be a Burnmill Productions under Cafe 125.  Shortly thereafter, Derrick L. Foward, the President of NAACP Dayton Chapter visited, and Sir, it was my pleasure and an honor.  More customers, daycare owner, her staff and new faces dined with us!  Today, was just a ....... typical day at Cafe 125!

Like I said.  I should, but I don't.


Have you ever?

Have you ever offered a homeless person begging for money a quarter?  Nickle or dime and they refused it?  Well, that's how I feel with ungratefulness.  "Separated us from them" was necessary.  I've always rode solo.  Like I said, I never intended to have NONE OF THIS!  Never wanted a restaurant.  All I wanted was my Flip-Duo bottle to be bought by Proctor & Gamble, Pepsi or Coca Cola.  But no.  Their feet dragging made me go far and beyond anyones refusal.  I always knew I could do anything, especially after taking college Physics I/II; Organic Chem I/II; and so, so many more sciences and mathematics that I won't even list them because it will sound like I am bragging.  These courseworks let me know I could do anything because I have never done something so difficult and completed it.  Out of 120 college students, only six of us graduated.  I'm one of the six.  All others dropped the course.  No longer looking for help from family, friends, businesses - no one!  Because it took none of them to get me where I am today.  My new goals are, like I said below, "laser focused" goals!  Do I know what I'm looking for?  No!  Just thought that maybe family, friends and the like would help - not even help!  I'm willing to pay money!!!  But their behinds are glued and hands obviously tied with duct tape.  So, that's why "Separated us from them" was necessary.  What I meant from help was: 1) pay a family member to run the store while I do other things; and 2) find a good employee to pay above average salaries (compared to the big shot companies who still pay minimum wage!).

I can't even have the basic to helping me run a company.  So my laser focus, makes me realize what I need and supply my own needs just as I did in the beginning.

Listen entrepreneurs, I've always told you "don't wait for no one."  Well, I was right.

Separated us from them!

Grown a little tired of being too nice.  My constantly trying to help others has just about come to an end ... except for my production company:  Burnmill Productions!  They get it.  Was only waiting for those "who got it."  They don't have "it" and never will.  Fishing in a pond of Cafe 125 -Topplez, where the fish are biting and hungry just for me.  Laser point focus on me, Cafe 125, and Topplez Corporation.  When you all are ready, look me up.   Enough said.

Jan Vargo, City Council Member (Current 2015)

I promised you all that I would not do another political event ... well I spoke too soon. 

Jan Vargo, City Council Member (Huber Heigths Ohio - 2015 Current) will be holding a meeting at Cafe 125, The Coffee House & Waffles this coming Monday, October 5, 2015, in the later part of the afternoon.  Our doors will definitely be open to accommodate our current city officials and the offices they uphold.  No television coverage has been scheduled for this City Council's member meeting, and I believe will be private with five guests to also atttend this important City Council meeting!  Super, super delighted that we were selected to serve and help our town officials with providing a professional environment to conduct business ......

A Success!


Our new School Lunch program provided to Creating Moments in Learning, Huber Heights, Ohio daycare/childcare was a success!  We had more kids than our proposal answered, but I was delighted to have such a responsibility and a chance to impress our new daycare/childcare clent.  We provide lunches only on Monday's, for now, but another little birdie told me that we may be getting the entire account!  This would be one of my best business moves!  All entrepreneurs should have a business account in providing services.  It's guaranteed!  No waiting for your customers to visit.  We welcome all our new daycare/childcare providers to contact us to discuss meal planning specific for your kids!  In our meal planning for our first Monday:  Salisbury Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Fresh Green Peas, Orange Slices and Fresh Baked Cookie!  All fresh!  No packaged foods here!  Next Monday .... Sandwiches on Whole Grain Bread/Rolls!

Cafe 125 Reality TV Show:  Episode 9


Today I will show you how I make our Cafe 125 Sandwich Baskets on this Episode of The Cafe 125 Reality TV Show:  "Cafe 125 Cooking" segment.  Like, I was trying to be serious, but it was a tough week!  No sleep, so I get a little silly like a 5 year old.  Ha!  Anyway, our Sandwich Baskets look amazing and our easy to make.  Just use a little imagination, and any vegetables you have in your refrigerator.  Pull out some spices or make your own.  You'll see.  We had an extra guest with us on this taping of this Cafe 125 Cooking segment.

Enjoy Cooking with Cafe 125!

The Cafe 125 Reality TV Show:  Cafe 125 Cooking

Episode 9

Today we filmed Episodes 9 of the Cafe 125 Cooking segment of our Reality TV Show.  We filmed two episodes because I did not prepare before hand - ha!  Your taste buds will llllloooooovvveee this recipe!  Me, I like different things.  And I like fresh food.  I eat meat, sometimes, but not at every sitting.  As I stated yesterday (below regarding lunchbox meals), this episode I focused on foods that we already make, but gives our customers more of a selection of our amazing Deli Gourmet Sandwiches.  We used hearty grains, pretzel rolls, oatmeal bars, baguette and a sour dough-like garlic bread for our CAFE 125 SANDWICH BASKETS.  We also made our own Cafe 125 Potato Chips - without frying!  I sliced the potatoes thin, and sprinkled salt, pepper and garlic before cooking.  Couldn't find my Garam Marsala spice I made a while back.   And our cold soup with todays lunch was WATERMELON GAZPACHO with FETA CHEESE!  Such a delightful recipe!  So refreshing!  So fresh!  Live foods for your body!  Not overcooked.  We also made a few vegetarian sandwiches for our vegetarian guest.  These recipies will make an excellent CAFE 125 LUNCHBOX meal for takeout or delivery entrepreneurs!  Watch our next Episode of:

              Homemade Cafe 125 Potato Chips.                                         Watermelon Gazpacho, a cold soup with Almonds, Feta.                             Our final setting for my guests and me.


      We will continue to make our own potato chips.                                  These will be the sandwiches for our lunchbox.                                               Cafe 125 Sandwich Basket






Cafe 125 Lunchboxes To Go!

*125 Deli Gourmet Sandwich
*Cafe 125 Potato Chips (hand-made)
*Fresh Side Salad, Soup, or fresh fruit
*Fresh Cookie


Decided to do something new (as if I'm not always doing something) and make lunch boxes for takeout and delivery.  This is not my first time doing lunch boxes.  Initially, this was for our DAYCARE/CHILDCARE lunch program.  However, I will try making lunch boxes for those in a hurry.  Our lunch boxes will be filled with our 125 Deli Gourmet Sandwich, hand-made potato chips, fresh side-salad, soup or fresh fruit and freshly baked cookie. Makes an excellent presentation.  Lunch on the go!  We deliver to businesses! Call to place your order!

Also, will be adding "125 Quik Board Sandwiches!"  All of our food is made to order - fresh, but for growth reasons, entrepreneurs, I decided to have a small refrigerator display with sandwiches already prepared in tamper-evident packaging.  I made a list of sandwiches that are easy to make and will be our checkout display food items.  I did some research and saw that this may be a smart move.  On Episode 9, of The Cafe 125 Reality TV Show Cooking segment,  I will show you my idea. 



New Store Front Signage 


Designed a new store front signage for over the entrance of the doorway today.  The old one had faded over the past two years from the sunlight, rain, sleet and snow.  I'm sure the same will occur with this one.  However, really like making my own signage.  It states and looks just how I like it without the high costs.  Looked at other businesses signage, and always like my design better.  Plus as the years go by, can always make changes and edits without thousands of dollars.   Now the hard part, finding someone to mount it in the frame.  That's the hardest part.  My first sign did not say all that I wanted because I uploaded my first creation and left out "WAFFLES."  I was disappointed but no use crying over spilled milk, right?  Can't wait to see it mounted. 

Taking You To New Heights!

It's Now Time

Deleted a lot of events and people related to them.  Had to make room for more things to say and post, plus get tired of posting people's businesses and links.  I can tell that things are growing for them and they can make their own friends and connections. Plus they never do the same for me. Enough already.  Let them feeel the minus Topplez connection.  Just speaking the truth out this mug!  All our new friends, and even myself will have to Google myself to remember all I get myself into. 



Now back to Cafe 125!

OK, entrepreneurs.  Time to bring it on home and focus on us for a bit.  Ok to be nice and help others, but sometimes .... well you know.  All in place.  Now just waiting for our liquor license to serve wine.  Hope that 'little birdie' can speed things along.  We now average 778-1500 hits per day on our website.  Last month almost 19,000 viewers.  New countries found us!  And we like them.    This week (9/14/15) we will be shooting a new Cafe 125 Cooking segment on The Cafe 125 Reality TV Show.  This will be Episode 9.  Episode 10, I believe, we will bring Arpi Agoyan to meet all of you and let's see what she is about and has to say.  Also, its time to visit "Wendy's" and see what this Chicken & Waffles thing is all about! 



Marigold Festival 2015 & Cafe 125


Marigold Festival 2015 took place September 12, 2015.  We were allowed to set up at 0600 to supply all the coffee needs of the vendores and early arrivals, but the actual event did not begin until 11:00am I believe.  I couldn't tell because we were so busy.  Initially it was slow, then we were nonstop.  My best friend and employee, Pam, helped me with this event.  She was the only person I know who is a trooper, not slacker in any way, and works late hours like I do and goes above and beyond for those she cares about - event strangers for that matter.  She operated the cash register while I kept her supplied with coffee.  It has been really warm, here in this part of the United States, however on this morning is was 50 degress!  We were freezing.  Previously it had been 87-92 degrees for the past month!  Just like last year!  So much more happed the past few days, in particular, on 911, but it was not truly Cafe125 related events, so I did not post.  Although, during these unexpected events I did talk with Layron Livingston of WHIO Channel 7 in Ohio, and invited him to Cafe 125.  Let's just end it at that!  All went well.  Not sure if I will do this again next year.  It takes a lot of set up.  They money is good, but too much work.  All my events are a lot of work, but if it were easy, everybody would be doing it, right?  We served Highlander Grogg, Decaffeinated & Traditional Coffee at this years event.  Also, we had our new menu item WAFFLE ROLLS for samples.  Waffles rolled up with sausage, pecans/almonds, bananas and whatever you like, rolled up inside and served hot.  Now, there you go Wendy's since you seem to need new ideas.  Geesh.  I like a little elbow room at my dinner table!  Need room to breathe.

A little birdie told me that my liquor license has been approved.  Waiting for the next and final inspection process, I believe.  Peace





Episode 8:  The Cafe 125 Cooking Segment

"Making Turkish Coffee & Peach Melba"



Here is The Cafe 125 Cooking segment from the other day for THE CAFE 125 REALITY TV SHOW.  Please do not write me letters complaining about how I did or didn't do something correctly.  Thank you.  Anyway, loved doing this type of television for my audience.  I think I can roll with this for a few more episodes because it shows what Cafe 125 is and should be about.  All the politicians, events, parades, etc.. its hard to focus on the core of Cafe 125.  I hope you enjoy this video.  Stayed tuned next episode for more fun at cooking with Cafe 125!  Darn wish I had worn makeup.  I always forget that I am on TV.  I usually rock natural.  Love being real!  But, ... geesh!  Let's be real also.  I could use a little.  Next episode, I will consider it!  Enough already .... enjoy the show!

The Cafe 125 Reality TV Show can be seen on Time Warner cable channels 5, 6 or 23 in Dayton, Riverside, Butler & northern counties; Sundays at 12:30pm.  Youtube Burnmill Productions.  Youtube Topplez Corporation.  DATV Live Streaming Sundays at 12:30pm.

Cardamom:  is a spice made from the seeds of several plants in the genera Elettaria and Amomum in the family Zingiberaceae. Both genera are native to Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Indonesia, Nepal, and Pakistan; they are recognised by their small seed pods, triangular in cross-section and spindle-shaped, with a thin, papery outer shell and small black seeds. Guatemala, where the German coffee planter Oscar Majus Kloeffer introduced Indian cardamom before World War I,[1] has become the biggest producer and exporter of cardamom in the world, followed by India. Some other countries, such as Sri Lanka, have also begun to cultivate it. Elettaria pods are light green, while Amomum pods are larger and dark brown.

It is the world's third-most expensive spice, surpassed in price per weight only by vanilla and saffron. 


These are still clips from The Cafe 125 Cooking Segment with instructionals on making Peach Melba "Not Like My Mom Used To Make. I started out quite well, only to get a little frustrated with that grill, and the heat generated from such a small instrument.  Anyway, the taste was amazing!!!!  At first bite, I felt the warmth from the grilled peach, then I tasted the sweetness followed by mint.  I really did not taste the raspberry nor the blueberries, but I know what I put in my body was good for me, so I liked it all!  But, the Turkish Coffee ... I am in love!!!  The flavor of the Turkish Coffee with the Peach Melba was the best flavors I have ever tasted .... with ANYTHING!  I have never tasted something so fresh and so different for my taste buds that I must have a cup of Turkish Coffee everyday!  It could be my imagination, but I felt a little different after drinking it, and I did not need another cup of coffee throughout the rest of my day at the Cafe.  Normally, I drink coffee .... ALLLLL DAAAYYY LOOOONG!  The Turkish Coffee satisfied me completely and I think I felt it running through my body.  Not sure, but I think so.  I loved doing this Cooking Segment, and next week I will attempt to make Seitan dishes ... and focus on more items we serve at Cafe 125, The Coffee House & Waffles for EPISODE 9 of The Cafe 125 Cooking Segment!

 ..... Salute!



My Response to Team Huber:  EPISODE 7

Although my camera man and I filmed a response, I only posted it in certain places to give the candidates a fair chance at election time without my opinion influencing the outcome during their greet and meets and at election time.  Below I explained my stance minus the video, but the show aired on television as our  program was scheduled.  My response, Episode 7, remains posted. Thank you and Peace.



Team Huber and Cafe 125

Ok.  Here is the footage from the taping of Team Huber Public Forum, addressing a citizen in the audience and laying out their agenda if elected to City Council, Huber Heights, Oh.  Filmed at Cafe 125, The Coffee House and Waffles. Aired as a separate entity for The Cafe 125 Reality TV Show; August 15, 2015.  It was a great turnout for Team Huber, to me.  Lots of orders. Thank you for dining and choosing us as your place to dine!  Unfortunately, I only met one candidate, officially - Richard Shaw.

Behind the Scenes of Episode 8:  The Cafe 125 Cooking Segment


                 Before the taping of The Cafe 125 Cooking Segment                                               .... and after the taping of my Reality TV Show

Today (9/1/15) we filmed Episode 8 of The Cafe 125 Reality TV Show.  I enjoyed shooting this episode so much!  This was our first cooking segment for my reality tv show:  The Cafe 125 Cooking Segment!  Today I made lunch for a guest.  You'll see.  I made authentic Turkish coffee served with grilled Peach Melba which you have heard me talk about, now you will see me make it on television.  Well, for you, or most of you, on Youtube video.  All other local viewers can see my reality show on Time Warner cable channel 5, 6, or 23 .... see below station announcement.  Anyway,  watch our amazing cooking segment and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed filming it.  (A Burnmill Productions)

Made some changes; some recently and some awhile back.  Of course, you've heard me mention the Turkish coffee, espresso cups for takeout, my new Wine List and licensing, but I also removed the only carpet that was in the 2nd dining room. I put down tile, which is more sanitary to me.  I also changed the colors of the window seat cushion yesterday. The other slowly faded from being in the direct sunlight.  Today, just a moment ago, the manager of Rip Rap Road house came to visit.  He normally stops in once or twice per day for coffee, espresso, cucumber lemonade ... all liquid items.  He asked for espresso today and I tried the Haseeb Turkish coffee and it clogged up my espresso machine.  Too fine for this instrument so I had to make it THE REAL WAY!  Induction heat apparatus!  Added raw sugar, let warm followed by one scoop of Haseeb.  Let it settle, then stirred.  Watched my foam roll from the sides of my authentic ibrik.  Let rise three times.  Let settle, collected his foam .... you know.  Even gave him a glass of water.  Gotta make my Turkish delights today.  Amazon customer just left. Thank you. She has a credit of $5-6 for super savings on drinks.  Well, .... Peace.

With all the racial tensions in the U.S.   The few at the top has managed to bring those of us at the bottom, together.  Thanks to Donald Trump, and many conservatives who tried to separate and divide our people, nation and the world!  Evil never wins.  Neither does the Devil. 




Mr. President Visits Family in Kenya!  Powerful!


Seen so many negative, racially toned comments on Yahoo and other sites.  But please come to know, this is my personal rant and opinion, he has already proven himself serving two terms as the President of these United States!  He has nothing further to prove to anyone!  Most comments I read were that he "should stay there;" another comment said "Michele Obama can wear grass native skirts;" peoples "monkey" and "gorilla" comments, and many other insensitive racial comments.  Learn something from me ... none of these requests or comments hurt African Americans feelings anymore.  Perhaps returning to Kenya after serving for this great country for two terms is not a bad idea for anyone of color to consider.  It would just be a topper already on his masterful cake with flares, sparklers and streams of confetti and a parade to match!   Everyone wants to know where they came from.  African Americans are no different.  Wanting to go to Africa is not a bad thing.  Many return home to Israel.  Many return home to Europe.  Many return home to Puerto Rico.  Many return home to Brazil.  Many return home to the Phillippines.  Nothing wrong with returning home to Africa.  This too shall pass.  And you too will move past this.

Peace out.

P.S.:  I love a good fitting native grass skirt.  I could pass on the tradition to my family here and abroad.  Peace.



Just goes along with the adventure

Tonight, I was at Speedway Gas Mart (one of the popular chains out here in the Midwest (Ohio)) and the clerk said, "I saw you on TV for Cafe 125."  I said, "When?  Sunday?"  She said "No.  It was ... I think Friday or Saturday.  I watched the whole show."  Thank you.

 My Wheelchair Scene:  Short Film "DRIVE" by Holly Hudson

A Short Film:  "DRIVE" by Holly Hudson 

I did not know I was playing the "mother" to Dave Chappelle's niece Sumayah Chappelle, in this movie!  I am such a fortunate person to have been given this opportunity without seeking it out.  A person sent the producer a message and told her about me, and all my experiences in New York, I responded back and that's how it all started!  Too amazing, right?!  No, I do not want to be a star, but I will be in a movie shooting this weekend 6/21/15 (if the weather permits).   I will play [40 year old, Arican American mental patient in a wheelchair with a 12 year-old daugter who will be stroking my hair]. Bwaa haaaa! Sounds just about right! Thank you to the producer/directors who selected me for this non-speaking role! Will post as soon as complete and I have a copy or link to upload.   Thank you to all of you.  Peace




CLIPS FROM EPISODE 3:  The Cafe 125 Reality TV Show featuring Brooke Kylie Howard


The clips above are from EPISODE 3 of our Reality TV Show!  Here, it shows Brooke K. meeting Mr. P, one of our patrons who frequents our Cafe.  Payton the Poet is what we call him.  He has performed at our Cafe when we had our very first Poetry Reading with Elaine, the Gospel Poets, and a few other talented individuals who shared their amazing works that evening.  Well, Mr. Payton still frequents our Cafe.  Enjoying his sausage n' cheese wraps while we listen to some of his latest works in writing.  He is known as the Controversial Figure of the Educated Lyricist!  Brooke is also featured on Episode 4 of The Cafe 125 Reality TV Show and you will be falling off your seats in laughter.  This was a day where I had NO sleep, at all and when I'm sleepy, I get silly.  Watch for Episode 4.  It's all real!  No planning.  They caught me at the wrong time on Episode 4!  Thank you Brooke Howard!




Huber Heights 4th of July Parade 2015 (Photos Below from 4th of July 2014)   

It's almost that time of the year again everyone!  The Huber Heights 4th of July Parade 2015!  Last year we were the "Floating Cafe" and the Barista 125 Gals passed out mini milkshakes (see our actual photos below) and mini cupcakes (actual photo) as we made our way through to the end of the event.  Some Barista Gals below attended and some could not for other reasons.  It was the first for us, and I believe the first for a moving cafe!  This year's event is fast approaching and we have all new staff to help out with this community held event!  There are so many more participants than last year.  City officials, State Representatives, WPAFB bands, Fire, Police and many businesses participated.  We hope to see you there this coming July 2015! 


This year, I have not fully decided on how we will present ourselves to the community.  I just know it will be in an upstanding way!  Thanks to the City of Huber Heights for such an amazing event scheduled for this coming July 4, 2015!
