...From Julius Caesar's month to Augustus Caesar's month...
...well, it's still as hot as ever down here in South Gingerville! Hope everyone else is keeping cool as possible amongst the triple-digit temps (that would be REALLY hot for those of you on the Celsius scale!) so, to pass the time, here's some 'miscellany' for ya...
FIRST, Let's plow thru the 'unpleasantries'...I know I harp on this a lot, BUT...just can't let it pass for this particular occasion, y'all... check out the last post on 'Ginger Rogers Official Website':
'Ginger Rogers Official Website'
See all the great entries regarding Ginger's 100th Birthday on July 16, 2011? Well, good, cause I DON'T EITHER... The 5/24/11 deal sounds pretty cool, granted... but c'mon, y'all...nothing posted on the Gingertennial? NOTHING??? On Ginger's 'official' website?
It takes a good bit to get Huey riled up, but... I just think someone needs to take charge of that site, y'all... (hmmmmm...I know of a blogger who would GLADLY take that role... :-] ) Anyway...rant over.
SECOND, Something pretty cool from 'Movies Unlimited'...they send out a weekly e-mail with new DVD releases, along with some pretty cool articles and features about all types of movie topics spanning all the eras. Well, they now have a 'guest blogger' feature on their site, and it appears to be pretty easy to submit an article, to be about your fav movie...here's the link to it, in case anyone's interested in submitting:
Movies Unlimited MovieFanFare Blog!!!
If anyone does this, of course inform us, and I will be glad to link, post, whatever... that would be pretty dang cool!
and, THIRD, we've got another Centennial birthday approaching... stay tuned this weekend, as Gingerology turns it over to one of Ginger's best friends... I'm sure y'all are way ahead of me on that as well..
Well, until then, y'all keep it POWERFUL Gingery!!!
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
