Tuesday, 19 February 2013


Monday is the day of the week between Sunday and Tuesday. According to the Christian, Islamic and Hebrew calendars, it is the second day of the week. But according to international standard ISO 8601 it is the first day of the week. The name of Monday is derived from Old English Mōnandæg and Middle English Monenday, which means "moon day".

Sunday, Monday, or Always

"Sunday, Monday, or Always" is a 1943 popular song with music by Jimmy Van Heusen and lyrics by Johnny Burke.

The biggest hit version, recorded by Bing Crosby in 1943 and appearing in his film Dixie, was made during a musician's strike, and recorded with a vocal group background instead of an orchestra. This recording was released by Decca Records as catalog number 18561. It first reached the Billboard magazine Best Seller chart on August 19, 1943 and lasted 18 weeks on the chart, peaking at #1.

The song is featured in an Amos and Andy radio show with the same title in 1943. Andy Brown had apparently heard the tune and later thought he came up with it himself. Somebody who knew the songs true origin played a trick on Andy by helping him write lyrics that go “Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday.” Later the real writers put in a brief appearance in the show when the truth comes to light.

The song was also recorded by Frank Sinatra about the same time, with a similar vocal background because of the strike. This version was released by Columbia Records as catalog number 36679. It first reached the Billboard magazine Best Seller chart on September 9, 1943 and lasted 4 weeks on the chart, peaking at #9. A subsequent parody version by Sinatra, titled "Dick Haymes, Dick Todd and Como", was recorded October 23, 1944 for the V-Disc program.

Lost In Translation~

I was reading a blog, Seek Him First, and there was a post on Bible translations. I use either the NKJV or the Amplified bible. I like to use the NLT and KJV on the side and I have a monster Strong's concordance and smaller size that I use as well for Greek/Hebrew and study. I really cannot stand the NIV version for a variety of reasons.

It interests me how strong we get on bible versions. There are almost cults out the KJV cult. Just kidding...*giggle*.. No offense intended...but really it does get that weird. I think as an older Christian I do need to pick well...and when I disciple different ones I do tend to recommend the NKJV or Amplified versions. I am not a stickler though. If they want to read the bible and it is the NLT or even the Message bible..Praise the Lord!! I guess they could even use the NIV version...ack!

I would LOVE to hear your opinion! What do you think?! You won't hurt my feelings...

When I was a kid a favorite treat was to make homemade ice cream. We had the one you had to churn by hand. All the kids couldn't wait to take their turn. There is nothing like a warm summer evening and the sun never setting till after nine that made being a kid WONDERFUL. I remember playing capture the flag or tag in my bare feet till late in the evening. Then going to bed with all the windows open and tossing and turning because it was just too warm. Then by mid morning it would cool off just enough that I would be searching for the sheets to cover me up.

The other evening we got out the ice cream maker. Nope..not a crank by hand. But you still get to put the ice in it with the salt and hear the churning outside. We got a bunch of chairs and friends and sat around while the kids played all around and made ice cream. I am a vanilla fan, usually, but I found a recipe I could not resist ~ CHOCOLATE MOCHA ~ chocolate and coffee..OMGoodness!!...YUMMO! It tasted like something you would buy at the store...I swear..cross my heart hope to live!! Forget the no sugar diet stuff..*snarf*
