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.

Cheesecake! Cheesecake! All you want to eat...CHEESECAKE!

This is not the first time cheesecake has been on the dessert menu nor is this the first cheesecake day per se. This IS the day of Cheesecake! Cheesecake! All you want to eat...CHEESECAKE! plain or any flavor you like. This goes for the crust, too...graham, cookie, shortbread, biscuit, chocolate, vanilla or no crust at all.

July 30 is... 
National Cheesecake Day
