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.

Bases Loaded! Full Count!

Action in the Sports Arena...that's what's happenin'! With baseball's World Series in high gear, America's adrenaline is pumping. After all, baseball is one of the American ClassicsBaseball, hot dogs, apple pie & of course, the Chevroletthe highlights of America's "Love Affair" epitomized in the famed commercial that had the nation singing in 1974.

Life, hot dogs and baseball
Hot apple pie topped with ice cream
Ah-h-h-h! Those American classics
Sad day had their visions not been seen!

On to the game...

"Welcome to the World Series" echoed throughout the ballpark as ushers greeted fans while some hot-dog vendors high-fived fans and each other along the aisles and behind the concession counter. Then, the game is on with the World Series starting with a bang! Hunter Pence's homer highlighted a three-run burst in the first inning as the Giants enter the game vying for their third title in five years. Click HERE for recap...

Giants lead series 1-0
Game 1, Final - yesterday, 8:07 PM
Ewing M. Kauffman Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri

San Francisco Giants = 7

Kansas City Royals = 1

We wait in anticipation for Bases Loaded! Full Count! It is still anybody's ballgame. The winner of the first is not necessarily the winner at the end. Perhaps...but not guaranteed! History has proven this happenstance over and over again. It ain't over till the fat lady sings!

A Bit of Baseball Humor...

Thanks to the endurance of their most popular and influential routine, "Who's on First?"—whose rapid-fire word play and comprehension confusion set the preponderant framework for most of their [Abbott & Costello] best-known routines—the team is, as a result, featured in the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
