  2. Thanks for this great blog about Ginger; it's a real gift to her fans!

    Thought you all would enjoy my article on Ginger's centennial that has just been posted this morning on Crosswalk.com's Movies channel:

    http://www.crosswalk.com/culture/movies/features/ginger-rogers-centennial-spreads-joy.html?ps=0

    The article focuses on Ginger's faith as well her work. I was able to interview Ginger's former personal secretary and close friend Roberta Olden for it.

    Hope you all enjoy it!

    Blessings,
    Whitney, Ginger fan, Crosswalk.com contributing writer, and editor of http://angels.about.com/
