This Day in GINGEROLOGY - March 23rd
1948: Eddy Chandler, who starred with Ginger in the films “Carnival Boat” (as Fordon) and “Star of Midnight” (as Kinland Henchman), died in Los Angeles, California, at the age of 54.2007: The musical biography of Ginger’s life, “Backwards in High Heels”, opens in Manalapan, Florida, near West Palm Beach.
...REMEMBER - The LAST segment of the Palm Springs Antiques Roadshow will be shown Monday, March 27th - It MUST be the one with Roberta Olden getting a piece of Ginger's furniture appraised... so check it OUT!!! (It's a cool show anyway, so...WATCH!) ... On PBS... see local listings for times... AND, I have noticed that the shows may be 'streamed' from the PBS website at any time after they are aired, so... COOL!

We made it in yesterday... went through a few of the Smithsonians today (didn't see any Gingerbilia, tho...) - and hit the Lincoln Memorial...dang, it's pretty crowded on a fair Saturday!
Anyway, heading out for Boston in the morning - should be an interesting journey - hopefully Sunday driving thru NYC will be a bit easier than a typical weekday.
Hope y'all get to check out 'GingerDay' on TCM, which cranks up in mere hours... I should have DVR'd it, but...oh well... if anyone does catch any 'special features' they have in-between movies, hopefully YouTube will be utilized...
Also, sorry about the 'Day In Gingerology' feature...I was going to just put all the 'vacation days' on the site at once - but again, wanted to get a jump on the trip, so... ya know, memory is always the first thing to go...or is it eyesight?
I'll try to 'check in' every once and awhile... but the posts will be rather brief, as an iPhone will be the mode of posting... but hopefully pretty informative nevertheless...
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
