4. That was quick! Thanks, Mr Scorpio.
I used to see it mostly in the East, too. I just came back from Florida and attending my 50th High School Reunion in Orlando.

5. I have a CD of Raffi and children's songs. I'll have to check if the song is
on that disk.

Thanks for your post.

3. I believe it's a groovy Catholic-Jesuity kind of group.
My geometry teacher in high school was into it. "De Colores" in Spanish literally means "Of Colors." I think they have a rainbow symbol, but it's not a gay group.
