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.

Cheesy, Healthy & Fun

There are combination celebrations that just don't seem to go together but then, of course, they really are not designated for that particular purpose in mind. Then, upon occasion, a couple just seem to be meant for each other. Such could possibly be case for the upcoming foodie day for when do kids not like cheese, even when they know it is good for them!

April 17... 
National Cheese Ball Day

(Many sites on the Web report Healthy Kids Day's - a YMCA initiative - celebration as April 30. Celebrate today. Celebrate then. Celebrate twice.)

The photos are probably not what you expected to see as images representative of cheese balls. Just think in terms of something to serve kids as a healthy snack. Or, perhaps, a little something different for party h'orderves.
 A Bit of Cheese Ball History...
According to legend, a man named Elisha Brown Jr. pressed the first cheese ball at his farm in 1801. It weighed 1,235 pounds! He presented it as a gift to President Thomas Jefferson at the White House. How fascinating!
Of course, the cheese balls are not limited to being just for kids...
