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.

Burger, burger...this time with CHEESE!


WOW! What is it with all the burger days? Of course, the answer to that question is simple: because they are so-o-o-o-o-o-o-o good! During the month of May, you could have indulged on any day since it was National Hamburger Month. Then, you were encouraged on May 28th to Have it your way! on National Hamburger Day in National Hamburger Month. By the way, according to wikipedia, May 28th is International Hamburger Day and August 27th is National Burger Day. That gave you a choice or you could have simply celebrated on both days since you may have been eating burgers all month anyway. Whew! May 28th is also designated as National Burger Day in the UK, which was launched in 2013. 

Burger, burger...this time with CHEESE! Harumph, harumph! As though we left it off on the other days. Right! Of course, there are those of you out there in burger land that simply prefer the good ol' juicy plain burger. Nothing wrong with that! Now, let's get on with the celebration.

September 18 is not another burger day for you to Just Bite It! It's...

National Cheeseburger Day

Fire up the grill or head to your favorite restaurant on National Cheeseburger Day!
If it is still too hot to grill outside, simply pan fry.

There are several theories about the origins of the cheeseburger. One story claims that the cheeseburger was created between 1924 and 1926 by a chef named Lionel Sternberger. As the story goes, a homeless man dining at Sternberger's restaurant in Pasadena, California, suggested the addition of a slice of cheese to his hamburger order. Sternberger complied, eventually added it to his menu, and the rest is history.
