Even in the Fog it is Clear

mustard-2-002-600x400.jpgWith the fog in the hills and the wild mustard in the foreground I must be in the best place on Earth! So here I am on my way to the office and couldn’t pass up this opportunity to catch this shot.  When I reflect on the seasons in the Napa Valley I never get tired of the views that unveil themselves throughout the year.

When I turn on the TV, read a newspaper or scan the Net all I see is doom and gloom.  However, when I make way up the valley each day I can’t help but wonder if our Country’s mood would be improved if they had my daily view.  I am blessed to live in such a wonderful place which provides me with the inspiration to help others. Whether it is working with our customers to help them realize their dreams or making sure our local kids get hands-on “real life” education I find it much easier to take the high road.

I ask that you look around and see if you and others are in the fog of negativity.  If so, I challenge you to make a change in your daily habits to breakout of your routine.  Sometimes you need to get a different perspective to recognize that opportunities often lie in these situations.

Until next time…clarity can come from just taking a different look.

EXCITING NEWS!  BDCo has moved to NAPA. 

After spending more than 30 great years as a resident of St. Helena, BDCo began a search in 2019 for a new office location in Napa that would better suit its needs. The goal was to improve the life/work balance for members of the team without inconveniencing our customers. Our newly completed Napa home meets our requirements perfectly and we can't wait to welcome you for a visit once we are all able to move about freely. 

For now, our office remains closed to visitors and much of our staff will continue to work remotely at their discretion and in accordance with current safety regulations. 

Our new address is :

Brotemarkle, Davis & Co. LLP
1000 Main Street, Suite 250
Napa, CA 94559
