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.

Somethin' Fishy

When you hear the expression something's fishy, that usually means something appears suspicious or seems not quite right. Some 'fishes' do have an unpleasantness about them, but today's celebration is not about somethin' fishy in the sense of something being afoul.

July 18 is...a touch of luxury
National Caviar Day

Caviar is the processed and salted roe of fish. Roe is the mass of eggs contained in the ovaries of a female fish or shellfish. While people use the word caviar to describe any fish egg, true caviar comes from the sturgeon, which lives in the Caspian or Black Sea and includes such species as beluga, sevruga and ossetra. The sturgeon and its different species are known to produce the finest varieties of caviar. The smooth tiny eggs are usually black, though caviar comes in many shades, including red, gold and grey.
