Just some of my favorite cigars in my humidor
Cigar smoking has become a national pastime. At least I think it has because cigars have been around since before baseball. There is nothing that I like better than taking one hour with one of my favorite cigars.

Cigars sales were declining in the United States, but made a huge come back in 1994 with over 8 million cigars sold, it was the 1st increase in sales since 1970. There are many books published today about the art of selecting and smoking cigars.

You might ask what is the best cigar? Well that depends on you, whatever cigar gives you the sensation, contentment and unforgettable pleasure of the smoke, that is the best cigar.

 I have few favorites that I'd like to tell you about.  My 1st is H. Upmann, Petite Corona and Lonsdale. They are made in both Cuba and the Dominican Republic. I'll be describing the Dominican, the flavor is mild to medium bodied with sweet overtones. Did you know that President John F. Kennedy smoked H. Upmann Petite Coronas?

Next we have Arturo Fuente. As of 2010 the Fuente family was producing more than 30 million cigars per year. The quality of the cigars are superior, the flavor is medium to full-bodied. The one I smoke the most is Curly Head Deluxe, which is affordable.

Another great cigar that I like is the Aston, also made by the Fuente family. The quality is also superior, they have a rich medium flavor. My favorite here is the corona. The Aston was created by William Aston Taylor who was a fine pipe maker.

These are just a few of my favorite cigars, I'm sure that you have your favorites. All you need is your favorite cigar and one hour.


New Year Resolutions

We're now at the end of 2013 and ready to begin a new year. Every year people make their new year resolutions, I know I've made a few. The truth is I don't think that I've ever followed through with one, have you?

Following are the most popular resolutions that I can think of:
  1. I'm going to stop smoking this year
  2. I'm going to loose weight
  3. Save more money
  4. Earn more money
  5. Get a better job
  6. Take care of myself better
  7. Join the gym and get in shape
  8. Quit drinking
  9. Go back to school
  10. Read more
These are 10 resolutions that I can think, but I'm sure there are so many more. I'm sure that we all make our resolution with the best of intentions, so what happens? and why do we not follow through?
I think life happens, our every day habits, work, go to school, come home, cook, clean, and take care of the kids, or whatever your daily life is we all go back to it.
Although you may be in the small minority of the people who make and follow through with your resolution. If you are congratulations to you.
As for me I'm just thankful that I have a loving and caring family, and great friends, that's all I need.
I would Like To Wish You A Very Happy New Year
And May All Of Your Wishes Come True In 2014

Gift Baskets Are Special Gifts

Hi I'm Sam and welcome to my blog, there will be many topics that I will write about mostly things that I have a passion for. Today I'm writing about why I think Gift Baskets are special Gifts.

Gift Baskets are often overlooked as a wonderful idea for a gift. Most Gift Basket Companies ads will read "Gift Baskets for All Occasions", and that is a true statement. No matter what the occasion is, you will find a Gift Basket for it.

I really like to make my own Gift Baskets, as I can take my time and choose the right items for the person that I'm going to give it to. Sometimes that's not always possible, so I'll buy one or order on-line and have one sent, the choices are endless.

I'm sure that if you look on-line or in the phone book that there is a local gift basket shop in your area. In most cases you can even go there pick out the items for your basket and they will custom make your basket to your liking, and even ship it for you if you're sending it to somebody out of town. Now that's what I call service.

Who is on your List?

Someone you Love
Your Parents
Your Kids
Brother, Sister, Aunts, Uncles, or Cousins
Special Friend
Your Neighbor
Child Care Provider

I'm sure your list goes on and on, and I'm sure that you already have somebody in mind from the list above. So don't delay because the season is upon us. Find that local gift basket shop and pay them a visit.
Aslo a gift basket can be well thought out if you're a good planner, or it could be a last minute gift. You will find pre-made gift baskets in many for the super stores, especially around the Holidays.

 Following are some links to my articles about Gift Baskets. Here you will find some instructions and video's on how to make your own basket or simply click and buy one.
