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.

Luscious Nutritious Berry Time!

Celebration is in order for the blueberry Popsicle®. With September being National Blueberry Popsicle® Month, it is not surprising for this cool summer treat to have its own designated day. As we near the end of the summer season, temps are still well above normal welcoming anything of a cooling nature. Of course, the Popsicle® is not a seasonal sensation. Instead such frozen treats are enjoyed all year around. Adding a burst of enjoyment on this day is the flavorful explosion of sweet blueberries. Get ready to become a card-holding member of the blue tongue society.

September 2 is...

National Blueberry Popsicle® Day
being celebrated within National Blueberry Popsicle® Month!

  

 

The stars of today's show are the luscious nutritious blueberries! Blueberries are packed with rich flavor, high in antioxidants, are known to improve memory function and can reduce the effects of aging. The chemicals found in blueberries may contribute to fighting diseases and prevention against certain cancers. Of course, this day is not the first for celebration related to blueberries: Oh, my! Pie! Pie! Pie! and Ah-h-h-h! Sweet Americana! both preceded this day of blueberry celebration, as well as July hosting O-o-o-o-oh! Blue orbs! for National Blueberry Month. Can't get enough of those luscious nutritious blueberries!
