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.

Golden Brown Tasty Loops

Who can resist a big, warm, and salty Soft Pretzel? Found in almost all shopping malls, carnivals, and sporting events, the entire month of April (along with many other celebrations) is dedicated to these delightful treats. Then, to top it off, the pretzel has its own special day! 

The early pretzels were the 'soft' variety!

April 26 is...
National Pretzel Day

The day is not over yet and it is never too late to enjoy a pretzel snack. If you do not already have an on-hand supply of pretzels, stop now and visit you local grocery or convenience store. The shelves should be stocked with plenty of varieties with their crunchiness awaiting your first bite. In fact, the salty crunchy pretzels last longer making the hard pretzels one of the better selling snacks in the United States.
