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.

O-o-o-o-oh! Blue orbs!

Jammin' in July (along with many other celebrations) includes celebration of National Blueberry Month. It is of no surprise that a day is set aside to celebrate a top-of-the-morning treat that pairs beautifully with your morning brew.

 Five Food Finds about Blueberries

Whether for breakfast or snack, blueberry muffins are melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness and are honored each year on July 11 on National Blueberry Muffin Day. Blueberries are packed with rich flavor, high in antioxidants, are known to improve memory function, can reduce the effects of aging and are low in calories. Baking the tiny blue orbs in muffins is such an enticing concept that in 1988, Minnesota named blueberry its official state muffin! No kidding! In addition, the state of Maine is the larger producer of blueberries in the world with more than 60,000 acres if blueberry bushes being farmed.
