    Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (KJV)

    10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord.

    Thanks for posting this, DK. I'm reading a book now about someone who worked a lot with Hugh Martin in the past. Mr. Martin was interviewed for the book and is mentioned several times. I JUST Googled him last week to see if he was still alive! RIP.

    Oh noooooooooooo. My mom and brother will be in mourning. What a talented man.

    "Meet Me In St. Louis" is on my list of my top five fave films. "The Trolley Song". Classic production number. "Pass That Peace Pipe" again classic. I'm going to have to dig out the old DHS's and watch those films.

    RIP Hugh Martin.
