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.

Love it or hate it!

National Marzipan Day

It's pretty...tasty?
Love it or hate it! A perfect name for this day would be "Get Rid of Your Leftover Marzipan Day!" This sweet, yellowish paste of ground almonds, sugar or honey, and sometimes egg whites plays a big role during the festive period. Marzipan is like Play-doh being it is moldable, unlike Play-doh it is edible. It can be molded into sweets such as marzipan-filled chocolate and small marzipan imitations of fruits and vegetables, it is also commonly rolled into thin sheets and used as a glaze for icing cakes. It is also known to be shaped into small figurines. Chances are you’ve got a fair bit left over (including toppings of Christmas cakes and treats), and you're needing something to do with it. Time to get creative and clear out the Marzipan! Play with it or trash it!
