...and the first vote for Ginger is from...

...yours truly! I somehow got the first vote in at MM for the 'Titanic' match-up between Ginger and Carole!!!
Well, it's a bit ironic that VP was the one who informed us all about this poll...I KNEW it would come down to this... Good Luck, all you Lombardites! A very worthy 'opponent' indeed!


Remember...vote early and often... see y'all on the other side!!!

KIG! ...and VOTEVOTEVOTE!!!

  4. ...great to hear have arrived at your Gingery destination, Kat!!! ...as well as performing your civic duty! It's pretty close on the poll, but still a 15 point or so lead...tomorrow will be the big day, as, once again, most folks 'catch up' on their blogging on Saturday... hopefully there's enough voters out there to keep her atop the poll...

    Well, just document...the 'live feed' would be nice, but not mandatory... the only 'favor' I have is - find out how much longer it will be there, or if there's been any plans to go elsewhere with it... I know the NYC deal was cancelled, but, it would be cool if it got a bit closer to South Gingerville!

    Have a great Gingery weekend, Kat! Looking forward to the reports!
