    I apologize for that rash statement. My kitty fur was a "bit" scruffed up at the time.
    I've never seen Cats but I watched about a minute of the video and it seems to be a well-done, well-acted song [and play]. I have not seen a play since I went to the Barn Theater in Augusta, Michigan in the 80's and 90's. Tom Wopat was a frequent actor there and my brother always had drinks with him afterwards. I did see The Rocky Horror Picture Show at a movie theater in Lansing, Michigan when my brother took me there around 1984. He was a student at MSU at that time. There was a stage below the screen and students were acting at the same time the movie was playing. People were even smoking cigarettes in the theater. Even left-handed cigarettes. It was a crazy hedonistic time. My brother was gay and it was an era of Freddy Mercury hedonistic partying. People always like to remember the good times but there were also bad times during that time too. And consequences. He contracted HIV and died in 1996.

    There are four types of giving in the Bible:

    1. Tithe Motivation is Obedience.

    2. First Fruits Motivation is Generosity.

    3. Alms Giving Motivation is Compassion.

    4. Seed Giving Motivation is Faith and Reward.

    apology excepted. and I too am sorry to hear about your brother.

    My user name indeed comes from the T.S. Elliot poem about RumTumTugger. I started using it when I first started online in the mid 80s on a little hobby BBS that my brothers introduced me too after someone made an ad homenum attack on my younger brother calling him illiterate when they had no answer to an argument of his,(my brothers and I are dyslexic) far from being illiterate my younger brother like me is a self taught reader unlike me who concentrated on fiction mostly he read on any and all subjects that interested him so my oldest brother got on and told the group that then my youngest brother got on to help out it was while they were telling me about this I decided to get in on it because well as I explained in my introduction letter to the admin of the BBS "I couldn't let the men of our clan have all the fun challenging the others there. I also choose that name to show folks that I think for myself. and there you have a short history of my user name and why I use it.

    I think Sparko is more of a limerick man




    The pirate looked down at the keg,

    "I'll lower my standards and beg,

    I'd like a wee drop,

    so why don't we swap

    some rum for my old wooden leg?"

    I'm always still in trouble again
