...otherwise, be on the lookout for some Gingery stuff soon...my workload has 'lightened up' a bit at work, so... ready to get back with it...
One more interesting fact...THIS post represents the 72nd one for 2012, which is a 'yearly record' for number of posts in a year!!! ...for all you stat-mongers out there...
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
