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.

Red & White Simply Served...or Not

Apples 'n' cinnamon, strawberries 'n' chocolate, cherries 'n' almonds, grapes 'n' cheddar cheese are combinations that satisfy our cravings, especially since the calorie counter registers low. But, then, comes the best part that is so hard to resist putting the calories on the rise. We have to have the cream whether heavy cream or whipped cream. Put strawberries on your menu today...make the serving simple or as rich as you like...simply served or not!
