And now for something wonderfully different

Charlie Chaplin, Louis Armstrong Bible Students. Appropriate with the Pope's visit (sorta, thematically, anyway). Chaplin's genius against all Armstrong. The music is wonderful. La Vie en Rose, A Kiss to Build a dream on, I've got the world on a string and more. I am traveling ..... enjoy!
