This Day in GINGEROLOGY - December 3rd

1910: Mary Baker Eddy, founder of Christian Science (which Ginger practiced), died in Newton, Massachusetts, at the age of 89. Lela Owens McMath was approximately a few weeks into her pregnancy which would ultimately result in the birth of Virginia Katherine McMath on July 16th, 1911.

1965: Ginger is crowned “Miss Ziegfeld 1966” (by MZ 1965 Julie Newmar) at the 28th Anniversary dinner of the Ziegfeld Club Charity Ball.

Next GingerFilm(s) (on FXM Retro - all times Eastern) - NOTE - the FXM Retro site is kinda 'cryptic' as far as specific times, so please check local listings for 'specific times':

...None currently scheduled...

Next GingerFilm(s) (on GetTV - all times Eastern):

None Currently Scheduled...Honestly, this channel is 'morphing' into a 'Nick at Nite / TVland' type deal... lots of Westerns and series from the 60's and 70's... which is fine, but less and less films being shown... so... this 'item' may well just fade out...I'll still check their schedule each month, but nothing in November... they DO show Merv Griffin specials, among other 'variety show' events, so maybe Ginger will turn up on some of those...

Happy ThanksGinger!!!

...still my fave Ginger Thanksgiving pic, even if a bit...'staged'... but Pilgrim Ginger is pretty awesome!

Well, hope y'all all have a great Thanksgiving, and the food prep goes effortlessly for all you food preppers out there (I'm more of the 'end-user' on the food deal on Thanksgiving... I have been the designated 'turkey fryer' the last few years, but we are just going for the traditional 'oven bird' this year...)
Ginger chickens....well, yeah... but those dudes over Ginger's left shoulder aren't safe this week... I swear that tall one looks kinda like the Loch Ness Monster...

And of course, keep in mind what this is all about... giving THANKS... so let me take this opportunity to thank all of Y'ALL out there who have followed this blog over the years... hard to believe it's been 7-1/2 years... but it's SO great to know there are other Gingerologists out there who share the same level of interest for all things GR.
...ah, Ginger on a float... Macy's is still rolling with the parade, although quite frankly I don't know any of the 'stars' which are current... perhaps they can just show re-runs of parades past... I know most of the cartoon balloons...

Hope to be posting more stuff soon...

Until then...

KIG, y'all!!!!

ELECTION TIME...VOTE GINGER!!!

...well, not really... although if I ever wanted to 'write-in' someone given the 'true' choices this go-round, THIS would definitely be the year... hmmmm....

...OK, y'all know I NEVER talk about politics here at Gingerology, or over on FB, as I am generally not immersed in the political system - I just know the basic facts and try to avoid too much of the 'analysis'... but... as this is truly one of the most important elections EVER (they are all important, tho, right?) I HAVE been watching and listening a good bit more - and here's my thoughts about it.

We truly do not have a great option.

BUT... ya GOTTA vote... it's your civic duty...no scratch that - it's your PRIVILEGE as an American citizen, which was secured by generations of fighting men and women in war, as well as on the home-front, who have kept this country free, and who fought for equal voting rights for ALL.

Case in point: The U.S. had just passed the 19th Amendment allowing women to vote about 10-12 years before Ginger's point in time was captured above, when she became old enough to register.

We all know Ginger's leanings politically, and hey, generally, I'm with her (pardon the current candidate slogan pun...). But it would have been interesting to know what Ginger would have thought about a female candidate, political leanings notwithstanding... it is a great thing to see 'diversity' in the political system, to the level of president... and a female president would be GREAT, in my opinion... just... ANOTHER one... without the issues... and issues.... and... issues.

As to the other candidate... he is touted as a 'change agent', which sounds pretty great on the surface, but... who knows how all of that will play out? I'm for some of his ideas, not as big on others (I'll let y'all guess those)... but... it is pretty hard to overlook his faults... needs to think before speaking, although his supporters like his 'straightforward' attitude... but...dudes who marginalize / trivialize women are not too high on my list, y'all... 

So... quite the conundrum, eh?

The answer?

...it's a real Jenny type of decision, with the potential for horrific consequences if indecisive...

...Actually, the answer is THIS... the only wrong decision you can make is... NOT VOTING...

Remember, it's a BIG part of what it means to be an American.

SO, hold your nose,  flip a coin if you have to, and VOTE... heck, there's a couple of local amendments here which are big to me (Local folks vote YES on Amendment 14 in Alabama!) so that is enough reason to stand in line... again... exercise your right and privilege which others fought for you to have!!!

OK, my once every four years political rant is over...

If all else fails, just...

Keep It Gingery,Y'all!

...Happy Gingerween, Y'all...

...well, it's hard to believe that October is dang near over... before you know it, the turkeys will be stringing Christmas lights and dropping the ball  on Saint Valentine's Day... but we're getting ahead of ourselves... let's just focus on the Halloween deal...
...Ginger is chomping at the bit for trick or treat... As a rule, Hu is not really all that 'into' All Hallow's Eve, but it appears that Ginger at least had fun with it, so... that's cool with me.
As to 'Scary Ginger Moments' in film, here are a few I compiled... I'm sure there are more, but late Sunday Night dictates the following as all I could think of...

...Here's a pretty intense scene... from Black Widow... Well, if y'all haven't seen it...


SPOILER ALERT!!!! Gloss over the next few lines past the GIF below if you haven't seen this film!!!



OK, I've alerted y'all who need it... so... skip on down... yeah, that's right...

...well, for those who are left... this scene is really a pretty 'unGingery' one... and pretty scary, at least for the chicky there... ...probably a good argument for you ladies to not wear neck scarves...

-----------------------------------------------

...Next up, a bit 'lighter' scare, but definitely in keeping with modern day 'creepy clown' themes... ...yeah, y'all know where I'm headed with this one... Get yer Yama-Yamas out with Vernon and Irene...
...now, I'm not into clowns, but... Ginger is, as usual, a VERY notable exception... she's so cute here it's painful... in a most exhilarating way, of course...

-----------------------------------------------

NEXT next up... one of the few 'horror / suspense' films Ginger did, this one from The Thirteenth Guest...which is really a bit scary, especially for 1932... I guess...
...yeah, not too big on someone freaking out my girl... grrrr.... 

----------------------------------------------

Well, although Ginger had a few 'damsel in distress' roles, for the most part, she was doling out the pain on others, as in this classic knife-wielding scene from Fifth Avenue Girl...
...somehow, giving Ginger a weapon is kinda like giving Godzilla a BIC lighter... she just doesn't need any more help... ...in other words, she can do bad all by herself...

--------------------------------------------------

...Another case in point, where she goes dawg huntin' in Carefree...
Freddie's having his on Nightmare on Skeet Street in this scene...

---------------------------------------------------

...although, sometimes Ginger can be serene in the face of evil... Oh Men (i.e., gooberhead), Oh Women (i.e., angelic goddess)...
...sigh... Ginger is just... ...so... ...well, y'all know... ....SIIIIGGGHHH.....  OK... onward...

-----------------------------------------------------

Well, honestly, that's about all of them, although this scene from You Said A Mouthful STILL seems pretty 'bloody' to me just at face value...
...it's like Joe E. Brown is saying, "Don't worry, I'll be back to smooch ya again after I go slaughter some more people with my bare hands..." ...you know, just keeping in the spirit of the season, y'all... ...um, alrighty then...

Well, with that, that's that... that it is.

I'm sure I missed a few 'scary / weird' scenes here and there, so please reply with them...

Hope y'all have a great Halloween if you desire... otherwise... just have a good Monday / Tuesday, depending on your global position.

KIG, Y'all!

...New GingerPic Header!!!

...after much wailing and gnashing of teeth from within the Worldwide Headquarters of Gingerology, a new GingerHeader pic, as shown above... captures the 'Younger Ginger' quite well, no? Bonus points for anyone out there who can tag this pic to a GingerFilm... it appears to be a 'feathery' costume, thus... Top Hat?

...and... ...good to be back! Back from WHAT, I'm not quite sure, but... all I know is it's time to get back into the Gingerology in toto...With that, I have a LOT of 'collating' to do... from transferring GingerFiles from my old laptop to my new desktop I am going to set up new files throughout... of course a major task which I am somehow not great at 'completing'... but it's gonna have to be done somehow...

With that, hope to be back to 'regular' posting here...

So - Stay Tuned - and...

Keep It Gingery, y'all!!!

...um... is it still September?

....dang time is just chug-a-lugging onward...

Well, it's been busy... the kids are back at school, so homework assistance and early bedtimes... that, coupled with a pretty busy work schedule the last few months, and Hu has been a good bit out of pocket, unfortunately...
...and as I was just looking thru the 'Day in Gingerology' posts, I noticed that it was FOUR years ago Hu and the Crew went to Boston U to check out the GingerCentury exhibit... dang... I STILL love that pic right there... I can't remember who told me prior to the trip to snap that one from the 'collage' they had displayed, but thanks again, as I've never seen it anywhere else...

Well, to multiply the 'things which get in the way of Gingeryness' factor, I also purchased a new computer -my old laptop, which runs Windows 7, is just about out of juice... I may try to update it to 10, as it incessantly reminded me to do over the last year or so... but not sure if it is 'physically' spent as well as 'behind the times', operating-system-wise...   ANYWAY, my new one is cool... a desktop - the old 'tower' deal... an ASUS... so far, so good... coupled with a 27-inch Samsung monitor and a backlit keyboard, I'm ready to GingerUP, y'all!!!
I want to get back on the GingerBinge deal... and also back on the LIFE magazine project... while keeping up with basic GingerNews going on...

SO... here we go...

KIG, y'all!!!
