Hey, guess whut, y'all... Gingerology is sneaking up on 100,000 'hits'!!! Pretty cool to know folks are still checking out this blog for all things Ginger! As such, I am going to make a concerted effort to add features and content... not the least of which will be a Facebook page, dedicated to Gingerology, or whatever derivative name I can get for it... hopefully this will keep folks up on stuff - as I am also going to be setting up more of the 'filmblogs'... and any other Gingery stuff that happens, I can place on there...or at least say, "Hey y'all, guess whut...(sounds familiar...) - I've added this-n-that to G-ology, or, to the 'Roxie Hart' blog, or whatever..." As usual, ANY input as to what YOU would like to see here is VERY much in order... just reply here... AND, I figure FB will give us a 'message board' type of deal, right? Isn't that how it works? hm?
And, ending this post on a sad note... y'all keep south Mississippi and Alabama in thoughts and prayers... a strong line of storms with tornadoes ripped thru the region this afternoon, hitting the town of Hattiesburg, Mississippi... That's where the University of Southern Mississippi is (Brett Favre's alma mater, among others...) - they are in MY alma mater's athletic conference, a pretty fair 'rivalry', and I've been down there for a few football games...just a neat college town. Tore up the area pretty bad...no known casualties, tho, which is great... here's an incredible video of the twister as it went across one of the main roads thru town, in 'real time', as it were, with some dudes in a car driving basically just behind the thing....incredible stuff...
Hattiesburg, Mississippi tornado - February 10, 2013
Thanks again for y'all's support - and be on the lookout for...well, you know...
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
