COOL!

New RKO Book
Here's the link:
Becoming Ginger Rogers book website
...aaaaand FIFTH, and finally, just noting a few 'tweaks' to G-ology...
First, y'all have probably noticed the new "Gingery Blogs" feature at the bottom right column...this is simply the 'latest and greatest' posts from most of the folks who follow Gingerology... I say 'most', because there are some of y'all who do not blog, and others of you who are 'blogging', but on a medium other than 'blogger'...thus, not sure if those will show up on the list, unfortunately. I may try to just 'link' those of y'all who are on WordPress or another format, so, stay tuned for that...
Second, I have added a 'page' to the UPPER right-hand column, entitled "Inter-Site Links to Gingerology's Ginger Rogers Film Reviews", which is pretty self-explanatory... just pick out the movie review you want to read, and click...it'll take you right to it (in theory, anyway...) - over time, this feature will hopefully be a convenient navigational tool for y'all, instead of hunting down specific reviews.
and Third....the music deal...it's gonna happen soon... just a week-end to figure it out... again, ANY suggestions on the best file player, file 'host' sites, etc., would be GREATLY appreciated!
Welp, that's 'bout it, y'all...hope everyone's having a great week, and remember...
Keep It 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
