New Look for the Official Ginger Rogers Website...

...about time!!! Here's a 'cap' of the new 'main page'...pretty cool, y'all...
...glad to see it has been updated. It appears that the content is pretty much the same, but maybe it will be updated in a timely manner. Of course, I think we are pretty demanding when it comes to all things Ginger (I've been pretty critical of the site, especially regarding the total lack of info regarding the Gingertennial...), but overall the site has some pretty nice 'basic facts' about Ginger...I dig the 'painting gallery' of her works, for example. But it would be nice if they added a 'chat room' on here...we would blow that up. right? :-] 

Here's the link to the site, in case y'all don't have it:

Updated Official Ginger Rogers Website

OK... next up is 'Sitting Pretty'...I've kinda 'jumped through' this one, and it will most likely fare well...Ginger has a few tunes in it, so that ALWAYS ups the 'Gingery Goodness Factor'... hoping I get it out to y'all by the end of the weekend.

In the meantime, hope everyone is having a good holiday season, with minimal stress!!!




  1. The color reminds of raw fish, so pink is always nice for gulls. But I have a sense for good designing as well and this here is a golden (pink) shot. Well, my blog is pretty much blue, like the Atlantic during sunshine, but I actually like pink better.

    Today I was told, Ginger said, "the depression deary", so it's rather modern today, since the media say we're in a depression in 2011. So they redesigned Ginger's page in time for the new depression. It had to be.

  2. By the way, we had an event of death, and my mom was actually much more mourning than I did, cuz she practically was the godmother of that pet gull that died in Romania during surgery. Sigh--we're trying to get back to normal.

  3. Miss G: Sorry to hear of your recent loss. Hopefully the holidays will ease some of the sorrow for you and your mom.


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