This is one of America’s most popular folk songs. It might have started as a sea shanty to help the sailors stay together when working. The original date it was written is unknown. The first time it was printed was 1882 in Harper’s New Monthly Magazine as part of an article by William L. Alden titled Sailor Songs.
There are many, many lyrics to this tune. These Christian lyrics were written by our friend Alan J. Ives. You can learn more about him at http://concordandharmony.com.

There are a couple things that our dog sits and waits for every day. He waits for my husband to come home from work. I didn’t notice this for a while when we were on a regular schedule. Then my husband’s schedule started becoming a bit erratic and I noticed that our dog would watch out the window or lay by the door during the time that my husband used to come home. It melts my heart a little each time. Even when the rest of us are home it’s the dog that gets to my husband first when he comes through the door.
The other thing our dog waits for is food. Besides laying under the dining room table whenever we eat he knows the normal times for him to get a bowl of food and his rawhide chew for the day. I recently learned that a store in my area sells the Wellness all natural, GMO free dog food, and I’d like to get some for our dog to try.
Dr. Al Townshend, staff Veterinarian at Wellness® Pet Food says that “Natural diets are designed to provide the very best nutrition and can have significant benefits. Natural diets offer ingredients with some important health benefits such as probiotics, those good bacteria that are essential for a healthy immune system and digestive tract; glucosamine and chondroitin for joint health; omega-3 fatty acids or fish oils for heart and kidney health; and added digestive supplements to enhance digestibility to get the very best benefits from quality proteins and fats.”
We have made this every time I’ve had a child in 2nd grade. The kids get so excited about it. It was easier this time because the older kids shook the bag for her. When my oldest made it I ended up shaking the bag for 4 out of the 5 minutes.
When I was asked if I like Leslie Sansone’s exercise DVDs my first answer was that I had never heard of her. They told me that Leslie’s like the Queen of Pittsburgh and her exercise videos are based on indoor walking. Sounded like it wouldn’t be too hard so I agreed to review the DVD.
First impressions: Leslie Sansone: Walk to the HITS Radio Remixes is very easy to follow and do. It didn’t feel like it would take a while to catch on, and I actually caught myself smiling – in the middle of an exercise video! It’s partly because Leslie and her group smile through the whole video. I know that they were supposed to for the video, but they genuinely look like they are enjoying themselves.
I don’t think I ever mentioned that I use them to stop arguments about whose stuff is whose. Is that sentence correct? I don’t know. Let me try with an example. We have 2 of the exact same cups – with lids, very important those lids – and I put my girls names on the cups with Mabel’s Sticky Labels so that they would not drink out of each other’s cups. Because – gasp – that would be horrible.
