This Day in GINGEROLOGY - March 23rd
1948: Eddy Chandler, who starred with Ginger in the films “Carnival Boat” (as Fordon) and “Star of Midnight” (as Kinland Henchman), died in Los Angeles, California, at the age of 54.2007: The musical biography of Ginger’s life, “Backwards in High Heels”, opens in Manalapan, Florida, near West Palm Beach.
...REMEMBER - The LAST segment of the Palm Springs Antiques Roadshow will be shown Monday, March 27th - It MUST be the one with Roberta Olden getting a piece of Ginger's furniture appraised... so check it OUT!!! (It's a cool show anyway, so...WATCH!) ... On PBS... see local listings for times... AND, I have noticed that the shows may be 'streamed' from the PBS website at any time after they are aired, so... COOL!

Odds and Ends...
Also...talked to my mom this morning, and she said she saw a 'Ginger Feature' on TCM last night (between movies), where Robert Osborne goes over her career - it was a 8-10 minute feature. Most likely in prepration for March - and hopefully this feature will be shown quite a bit during the 'Ginger Nights'... so be on the lookout - hey, it might surface on YouTube or something...
As for the TCM movie list on the right, I am not going to TOUCH it until March is over... every time I edit it, it throws in 3-4 lines between text lines. And, since they are showing so many, will just keep them up to make sure folks know when they show one, or if it has already been shown... so please just scroll thru it as needed.
Finally, I have started converting stuff to mp3 files - mainly Ginger's audio book, which is neat to listen to, but pretty long overall. I am going to set up two 'jukeboxes' - one for Ginger tunes, and one for Ginger 'spoken word' stuff... so ANY suggestions as to the best 'jukebox' player for a blog site is would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
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
