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.

National Macadamia Nut Day



The Macadamia Nut is one of Australia’s few contributions to the world’s food plants, and as mentioned in the beginning, this rich, buttery nut is considered by many to be the most delicious of all nuts. The macadamia tree originated in Australia. It was introduced into the United States in Hawaii around 1881 and used ornamentally. The first commercial orchards of macadamias in Hawaii were not planted until 1921.
