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.

Did Punxsutawney Phil see his shadow this year? The famous weather-predicting woodchuck came out Tuesday morning at Gobbler's Knob in Punsxutawney, Pennsylvania, and did NOT see his shadow -- which means an EARLY SPRING. READ MORE...
With any predictability comes variances. This is especially true of the weather across our nation. It is interesting to note that Punxsy Phil is not the only predicting woodchuck! Several other groundhogs also failed to see their shadow, forecasting an early spring. On Staten Island, the groundhog known as StatenIsland Chuck also did not see his shadow Tuesday morning, according to NY1.com. General Beauregard Lee, the woodchuck that resides in Georgia, did not see his shadow, CBS 46 reported. But in Dunkirk, New York, Dunkirk Dave did see his shadow, predicting six more weeks of winter, according to WIVB.com.

Spring is definitely coming, just a matter of when! Let's do hope Phil did not lie and the buds & blossoms will appear soon!
