Well, hope to get some things going here, as usual... most notably, the LIFE magazine covers deal... as well as a few other things...
...for the moment, however, let's just all sit back and take a deep breath, knowing we made it through the month of chaos in one piece, for the most part...
Have a VERY Gingery weekend, y'all!

Always and forever Ginger...

Well, other than the precarious time of year we find ourselves in, all is doing well in the Huey Camp... hope to be getting some posts 'of substance' here soon, but... kids are in the 'final push' of school, and I have a fair amount of stuff cooking at work, so... we'll see. In the meantime, thanks for y'all's continued support!
Hope everyone out there is doing 'OptimumGinger'! (a new phrase I just made up, which y'all 'get', I am sure...)
Speaking of phrases...

Well, it just so happens that this post regarding the vernal equinox also is... Gingerology's 400th Post!!! So, a milestone of sorts that I am pretty happy about... thanks to all of y'all who still check out the site... ONE of these days I'll get things a bit more 'detailed' here, but some 'real world' stuff to work out... just busy with work, helping the kids with school, etc... nothing 'heavy'...
This IS a good time to do a bit of 'spring cleaning', as it were... and thus, I will try to somehow 'streamline' the blog... not sure how that will go down, but... there's also the issue of the 'GingerFilm blogs'... heck, I haven't properly kept up with G-ology, so how can I give time to each of THOSE blogs? I truly set those up as a 'picture backup' of sorts, anyway, but... would like to add a few things here and there, in case someone runs across it...
Oh, and here's a few "You know you're a Gingerologist when..." deals which I've been wanting to post...
First - this was from a roll of blueprints I received at work a few months back... notice the name... who do you think of?
Here's another GingerMoment which I didn't post when it occurred back around Christmastime - a present we received...
...well, there's some other Gingery things I need to roll with... of course the LIFE magazine cover project... the biggest deal will be how to print these properly... a 'dry run' will have to take place... I still need to 'spruce up' the images, but they are close... I'll do a 'progress' post pretty soon...
...also, wanting to get more details on the Ginger Birth House Project... seems like the renovation work is ongoing, so, COOL... I would LOVE to get up there this summer to see what's up with it... stay tuned...
Hope everyone out there has a GREAT spring, with decent weather and minimal pollen (it's already full force here... bleh)... until next time...

PI is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter... which will ALWAYS yield the number 3.14, and a whole bunch of extra numbers (some dude has ciphered it out to 5 trillion digits... no, REALLY...) but, what's cool is, ANY circle, from the head of a pin to the circle of the earth itself, will yield the value of 3.14.
So, on this PI day (March 14... 3.14), y'all go out and...well, have some PI!!! ...not QUITE like Ice Cream Day (the 3rd Sunday (Sundae?) in July), but pretty awesome nevertheless...
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
