The Rum Tum Tugger!

Have you ever seen Cats the Musical? Well, if you haven't then, my gosh, you have missed a good musical! I'd love to show you one of my favourite parts of the musical called 'The Rum Tum Tugger' - Rameses is a Rum Tum Tugger. I showed him the song and he was literally dancing to it.

The Life and Times of Will

There are a lot of unknown facts about William Shakespeare. He wasn't only a playwrite, he was so much more than that. Here are some fun facts about him. These facts aren't only about his plays, but his life and some other very well known people.

Fact 1: He married a woman named Anne Hathaway (like the actor.) She was eight years older than him and she was three months pregnant.

Fact 2: He had three brothers named Gilbert, Richard and Edmund, and one sister named Joan - quite a big family.

Fact 3: He had a baby girl named Susanna and when she was two years of age Anne gave birth to twins. Their names were Judith and Hamnet - not Hamlet. The twins were named after there two friends Judith and Hamnet Sadler.

Fact 4: Back then, people drank from the Thames, under London Bridge. It was really dirty because it also served as the city's sewer.

Fact 5: In those days, if Queen Elizabeth became annoyed with people, she would have their heads chopped off.

Fact 6: Edward Alleyn, a famous actor of the time, started acting when he was a teenager and had risen to become the leader of the company, Lord Strange's Men. He was a very tall man, about six feet (people back then were generally short) and he was famous for his loud voice.

Fact 7: People attending the theatre were always loud, unlike now, where people are quiet in their seats. They threw rotten vegetables at the performers if they didn't quite like the play.

Fact 8: Over about a period of ten years, starting in 1593,Will also wrote a few sonnets (a particular kind of short poem.) He was probably very keen don them because he wrote 154! Sonnets have a particular format. They were 14 lines long, and had a strict rhymic scheme.

Fact 9: Christopher Marlowe was probably the most talented writer in London (next to Will). He filmed the Doctor Faustus and The Jew of Malta and was also a government spy involved in secret activities. He attracted trouble like a plague victim attracts files. Although, quite brilliant, his luck ran out in 1593 when he got into an argumant in a tavern about who was going to pay the bill. He was stabbed throught the eye and killed.

As you can see the life and times of William Shakespeare were interesting to say the least. He was not only a Playwrite, he was father, a brother, a poet, you name it! Will continues to be inspiring today and is more famous and inspirational than ever before.

Falling out of the Sky

I gazed above me
And saw a flashing light
The colour of gold
An eternal flame
I widened my eyes
A body came floating
And something protected it
She was falling out of the sky
I held my arms out for her
She was coming closer to me
My arms were out stretched for her
She fell into my embrace, her arms wrapped my neck
She had a a grazed mark on her face
And she was bare, and dirty
Her eyes were shut and she cradled up to me
I put her on a rock
She opened her eyes delicately
Looking into mine
She hugged herself securely and blushed
"Are you alright?" I asked her,
Putting my hand on her knee
She nodded and unfurled her wings
They were a golden brown
And they were almost bigger than her
"Thank you for saving me," she whispered
She gently brushed her lips upon mine
She flew back up to the sky
Without any hesitation
Was I just with a fallen angel?

How many Breeds of Cats are there in the World?

Have you ever wondered how many breeds of cats there are in the world? Well, it's time to discover!

There are currently over 80 breeds of cats recognised by one cat registry or another.

The International Progressive Cat Breeders Alliance recognizes 73 feline breeds, while the more conservative Cat Fanciers' Association gives the nod to only 41. Developing and registering a new breed of cats is a long, involved progress, and not every attempt is successful. For example, the CFA steadfastly refused to admit cats bred from "wild stock," such as the Bengal, or the Savannah, although these breeds are both accepted by TICA and IPCBA.
A cat must have a traceable lineage going back several generations to be registered as a pedigreed cat. The term "purebred" is not used by breeders or the cat fancy in general, but is a popular term among the general public.
There are many breeds of cats.
There probably still breeds that still need discovering.
