“Here comes Peter Cottontail, hoppin' down the bunny trail. Bringin' every girl and boy baskets full of Easter joy…” and cigars! After you pick up all the goodies for the kiddo’s Easter baskets, pick up the ham, and color the eggs, don’t forget your Easter cigars.

My everyday cigar is less than $5, and I usually bounce between an Acid Blondie or a Liga Unico Papas Fritas. So, on a holiday I don’t mind spending a little more and like to try something different. Here are my five Easter picks: 90+ rated cigars all under $20!

It’s great when your career is in a field that you are passionate about. There are many people who work jobs every day that hate them, so I am grateful that I do what I do. Of course, it is always good to have other skills to fall back on in case of an emergency or dramatic event in one’s life. On a recent trip to the Dominican Republic I was recognized for a talent in which I didn’t know I had. Out of a very large group, I placed first amongst my peers and I must say it was as eye-opening experience.
