Just Wondering if I am the only one...

...who is a bit 'puzzled' at the lack of activity on the ' Ginger Rogers Official Website' - www.gingerrogers.com ??? The last info on there was December of 2008, about the paper doll book... It would seem like there would be someone in charge of it... I (sadly) think it is a 'dormant site'... which is sad, if someone out there needs Ginger info, just Googling her would probably put this website at or near the top of the list... I mean, it has the basic info, but there is a lot more to discuss Ginger, we all know... like when her movies are being released or shown, the 'birthplace' story, even birthday stuff...also polls, pictures (the site basically just has pix from ginger: My Story...great pix, no doubt, but the 'official' site should have TONS of pix, no?)...anyway, I guess a 'soapbox' moment... maybe we should all 'inquire' and help that site out some... i'm game!

  1. Haha, me too!

    And you're right-- it is the first site that pops up in a Google search.

    But I think that anyone in dire need of Ginger knowledge would be willing to seek it out, wherever that may be, so if that site didn't cut it-- there'd be another to try, you know?

  2. Correct - fortunately, there are many folks (like us) who are into 'keeping up' with Ginger... just kinda weird that the 'official' site is not very active.

Awards...Thanks, Y'all!!!

...I TRULY appreciate these, and the kind words regarding this blog...thanks for all the inspiration I have drawn from each of your blog sites, which are all awesome in their unique ways!!!
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
