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.

Got 'Chocolate' Milk?

 for MORE celebration!

Do you love chocolate? All things, anything chocolate? It would not come as a surprise to find most people answer "yes!" to both questions. Chocolate, after all, is a feel-good food, a pick-me-up, a taste pleaser! For this celebration, instead of eating the chocolate, you get to drink it!

September 27 is... 

National Chocolate Milk Day 





Until the 1820s, drinking chocolate was fairly uncommon and no one knew how to produce a smooth chocolate taste in liquid form. In 1828 the Van Houten company in Amsterdam invented the cocoa pressing method. This produced a light, fluffy chocolate powder that could be easily dissolved in water or milk. Today, chocolate milk is a popular beverage for people of all ages. [Source: punchbowl]
