    so, this here is my 1,660th post. Being a bit of an anglophile and the theatre historian, I noticed the significance and thought that I would point out for this post that 1660 is also when Charles II returned to England after the Interregnum, which began in 1642 (the theatres were closed during that time thanks to Oliver Cromwell). Chucky had been hanging out in France during the Commonwealth days, and saw a wonderous sight...chicks playing chicks on the stage.

    When he returned to England, he reopened the theatres and repealed the law preventing women from performing on stage...from that time on, women played women!

    Thank you. Your history lesson is over until I get to another significant post number (and notice it...I would have at 1,066, but didn't think about it).

    This is post 1776. I hope that I don't have to explain the significance of this date in History...when the US declared independence, which of course was the begining of twilight for that mighty sun that was destined to set eventually.

    wasn't being excluding ...

    apologies to the non americans ... we had a little educational program that came on every saturday morning called school house rock. GREAT show! I even own the DVD's ... it was a great show that taught math, history, etc. in these funny songs with funny characters.

    Jocose's post made me think of that ... that's what my comment was about.
