In the midst of a media storm, with me and Chapman inundated with Chipotle-type requests at opposite ends of the globe, I think of U.S. President Bill Clinton’s press secretary, Mike McCurry, who wrote that before a shit-storm, he would go have a smoke in the basement of the White House, just to collect his thoughts.
Beehive honey was an iconic brand in Ontario, Canada, growing up.
They always had a booth at the food pavilion at the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto, and usually brought in a professional hockey type to meet-and-greet.
It was only a couple of years since the Leafs had last won the Stanley Cup – so about 1969 – and I went to the Beehive booth and got Norm Ullman’s autograph.
About 25 years later, I met one of his nieces while on a family vacation.
But I didn’t know Beehive made cold-cuts. In New Zealand.
