You’ve earned it!

While the fourth month of the calendar year is known as the beginning of spring, or bringer of showers that create flowers, Americans know the month best as the deadline to submit an economic accounting of the previous year to our Federal Government.
So here we are again. In April. With Tax Day midway through the month. And as we assess what happened to us in 2008, we don’t necessarily find a pretty picture. Three named storms, Fay, Gustav and Ike, all in a four-week period. The near collapse of the American Economic System. And the Saints missed the play-offs... again.
Beat the April 15 tax filing deadline, then really reward yourself. Really.
Armand de Brignac Champagne, created by Cattier Cellars, boasts a gold-plated bottle, emblazoned with four pewter Ace of Spades symbols. This traditional Champagne contains all the grape varietals legally allowed: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier.
You will be the envy of your neighborhood by popping open a bottle, which is art both on the inside and on the outside of the package. It is not cheap but you have definitely earned it!
