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.

What's Happenin'? in September

September is almost half over and Autumn is just around the corner. So much has already been celebrated but much, much more awaits. Check out What's Happenin'? in September at Pinterest. Even if a celebration has passed, you can always celebrate belatedly!

September 15 was missed on the What's Happenin' calendar so let's get prepared for...


Linguine (often misspelled “Linguini”) is a long, flat, narrow type of pasta. Most commonly linguine is used in seafood or pesto dishes, such as Spaghetti Alle Vongole (“linguine with clams”).

Linguine originated in the Liguria region of Italy and literally means "little tongues" in Italian. Pause for a moment. Use your imagination and project a mental image of you dining at one of the local trattorias, taking in the flavors and aromas of good, hearty pasta dishes! These flat noodles pair well with seafood and pesto, but sheer happiness abounds when teamed up with chicken, meatballs or even in a special dessert! Salivate in thoughts that transform the most simple of pasta dishes in an explosion of flavor.

Have a favorite linguine dish? Serve it for lunch or dinner in honor of National Linguine Day!

The briny juices from the clams help to flavor this brothy sauce—the fresher the clams, the better the dish!
