ok, all y'all on Facebook...
But, I guess it couldn't HURT anything...so, stay tuned...but again, any input you may have regarding this issue would be greatly appreciated... for that matter, Twitter is an option as well...I REALLY don't understand that one...but, wouldn't it have just been INSANE to have Ginger 'tweeting' on her events during her heyday?
I may need an I.T. person before it's all said and done...
OK, well, a 'general Huey update'... I have a few 'deadlines' at work the next few weeks, so...posts may be a bit sparse until then...
The Roberta review will be most likely around the first weekend in December... which may be a neat time to 'kick off' the Christmas Season anyway (which, BTW, doesn't officially begin until AFTER Thanksgiving... so, STOP putting decorations up NOW, y'all... give Turkey Day your full attention!)
So, remember to extol the virtues of other forms of social media for Gingerology, as when I am 'cleared out' at work, G-ology will be given great attention by Hu...it MAY even be time for a bit of 'tweaking' here and there... nothing earth-shattering, tho...
So, until that splindiferous time,
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
