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.

Apple time!

One of the American Classics - Apple Pie! Or anything with apples for that matter. The apple is good any day any time. Bobbing apples at Halloween. Candied apples at the carnival. Apple pancakes for breakfast. Slices of apple with cheddar cheese at snack time. Apple dumplings at dinner time on a fall evening. Oh, my! The list could go on and on and on. Ready for an apple or apple something?

September 20 is...
Eat an Apple Day

    You know the saying, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away?" Well, it's true. Apples have high nutritional value and are an extremely healthy snack. The peel alone contains antioxidants that help reduce damaged cells and fight diseases. Apples are also fat, sodium, and cholesterol free. That’s almost reason enough to love apples!

    Did you know there are 7,500 varieties of apples grown throughout the world? They can come in a variety of shapes, flavors, and colors including all shades of red, green, and yellow. The apple can be eaten raw, cooked, baked, or juiced. Snack on your favorite variety (Red Delicious, Gala or Macintosh, perhaps?) and celebrate Eat a Apple Day! Expand your palette and enjoy something slightly different from the many varieties and types of apples available from around the world.

     Bake a pie, make a tart, enjoy a crumble or a simple, crunchy fruit treat. Why not take enough apples with you to share at work, at school, or with friends?
