Interviews from the Archives
Basketball Legend – Bill Russell
March Madness is in full swing in the United States, which is the time of the year when basketball takes the front stage for sport. As such, we dug way back into our archives and pulled an audio tape of us interviewing basketball legend Bill Russell.

Honolulu Cookie Company
If you have been to Hawaii in the last 15 years, then you know of the famous Honolulu Cookie Company. Established in 1998, this company as an upstart had the foresight to trademark its pineapple-shape shortbread cookie paving the way for future success. Now with numerous locations – including Seoul, Korea – Honolulu Cookie has become a staple. We most recently ran into one of their stores on the main drag in Waikiki and then again, in Las Vegas. Providing a true taste of Hawaii, these gourmet cookies are a real treat, and their gift baskets might just be that unique item you need to send to a friend.
