business news in context, analysis with attitude

by Kevin Coupe

Because today is National Pie Day, I wanted to offer a memory of some of the best pie I've ever had.

The place was the Bahamas.  The time was last June.  The source was a grocery store called Vernon's, on Elbow Cay in the Abacos, which is renowned for its key lime pie.  (As I wrote at the time, Vernon's was hardly the most impressive retailer you've ever seen … but with key lime pie to die for.  And, more importantly, to get up early for.)

That's today's business lesson and Eye-Opener.

I bought  Vernon's key lime pie.  And ate it.  For breakfast, with a hot cup of coffee, while enjoying the early morning sun coming up over the Atlantic.

It reminds me of the slogan used by Blue Raeven Farmstand, a pie place more than 3,000 miles away, in Amity, Oregon, just southwest of Portland:

Pie fixes everything.

No argument here...
