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.

Junk Food Junkie

Do you have an insatiable sweet tooth...the sweeter the better? Do you absolutely crave the salty along with the sweet? Do you love, love, love popcorn...perhaps the saltier the better never forgetting the butter, REAL butter? Do you load up on the salty fries or chips along with that greasy burger? Does a slice of pizza never seem to be enough with more, more, more sometimes equaling the whole 'thang'? In other words, are you a junk food junkie? Well, if you answered yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, then this day's celebration is definitely going to be the day for you!

The term “junk food” was initially used in the 60s but was popularized during the following decade when the song “Junk Food Junkie” reached the top of the charts in 1976.
