On Monday we will kick off a new section of Muse: Java Jive.

No, it’s not a testimonial area to Ben Oakland and Milton Drake’s famous song (although we "borrowed" the title).  Nor is it a roundup of area coffee houses (and we have several in a small town).

Nah. It’s a place to discuss what people are discussing over coffee in and around Floyd at any given time because morning coffee at Blue Ridge, Cafe del Sol, Express Mart, West End Market, Jim’s or any other place where folks gather for breakfast is where one finds news and topics that concern the area.

It’s what folks are jiving about over coffee.
