Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Something's hot!

February 4th is . . .

 Homemade Soup Day

When better to enjoy a delicious bowl of soup than Homemade Soup Day?
A bit of soup nostalgia . . .
The origins of Homemade Soup Day are lost in time but you don’t need to know how it started to celebrate the day. Certain soups are traditional to particular areas, such as Borsht in Eastern Europe or the well-known Italian soup, Minestrone. Unusually, the famous Spanish dish Gazpacho, is generally eaten cold, making it perfect for summer. Of course, there is nothing much better to warm the bones in winter than a piping hot bowl of vegetable soup or chili.

Thank a Mailman Day

Thank A Mailman Day gives you an opportunity to say a polite
‘thank you’ to your postal courier, parcel service, and good old mailman.
Remember the inscription: Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds? I call that dedication! Of course, while technology contends with cyber ghosts, Mother Nature often denies our mail carriers unstoppable rounds! It’s hard work delivering the mail day in, day out, come rain or shine.
Do we really want it to come to this?

  Give me the few pieces of junk mail in my mail box on a regular basis over the thousands of spam messages received daily via e-mail!
