    May is here and you all know what that means. Not just the end of April showers and tax time; but Cinco de Mayo! Yep, that’s right, May 5, the one day of the year when it’s perfectly acceptable (although maybe not advisable) to wear a sombrero to work and start the day off right with tequila for breakfast…. and then lunch…. and some more for dinner too.
