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!

Of course, fellow Gingerologists have well documented the specifics of the incredible items on display at the Boston University Gottlieb Center, but there were a few specific requests out there from y'all...
Well, I have quite a few more pics, and some pretty neat tales from Beantown... overall it's a very neat town, and I highly suggest it for your traveling itinerary.
I am compiling this on my daughter's laptop, which is OK, but a bit hard (for me), w/o a mouse...and, we really are quite busy! We are actually back near Baltimore now, and tomorrow we are heading over to Annapolis, and tomorrow evening heading out to the Orioles-Red Sox game at Camden Yards (if it isn't rained out...) - so, I probably won't be able to do a great deal of posting until we arrive back in the Ham by the weekend...I will be able to 'have my thoughts gathered' a bit more then...
But, yes, indeed... there IS a Virginia, y'all...and the documentation of her incredible life and career is on display in Boston...hope y'all can get there - it's worth it!
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
