...Ginger feature regarding the Oscars...

Well, for all you G-ologists who aren't on Facebook and/or do not partake in Facebook (hi, Ma), here is a neat clip from FB (posted by Amanda Cooper...thanks mucho to AC!) - it's just an 'overview' from a Kansas City TV newscast a few weeks back regarding our girl and her 1940 Oscar win... good 'footage' of her birthplace:

Really cool to see the house still in good shape - back when I visited the house in 07/16/11, the owner was talking about work planned for the house... Nice to know it's in good hands!

Hey, y'all, don't forget the Classic Actress tournament begins manana!!! So, jump over to Monte's site, Mythical Monkey's site, and actually a few others, which will have all the 'matchups' set for you to vote.
Of course, I am not going to 'endorse' anyone, and since Ginger has 'retired' from the tourney, it should be really cool to just go vote for all your faves... I will say there is a tough first round matchup in Jean Arthur vs. Una Merkel... really love Una, but kinda hard to go against Jean... a coin-toss, maybe?
...go VOTE!!!
-----
Hope all are having a great weekend...I'm doing fair, but I have the same goofy congestion crap from last week... just bad enough to drag you down a bit... it's getting better, tho...
big stuff going on here at G-ology... more posts to follow... soon!

Until then,
KIG, y'all!

  1. I remember seeing that on FB. It's pretty neat that Ginger got featured on news, you don't see that everyday now.
    I hope someday to check out the house in Independence. I think it would be great. :)

    KIG!!!

    1. You'll get there one day...every passes thru KC at some point in their lives, I guess... It's pretty much 'what you see is what you get'...just a neat OLD little house, but just a bit more to it than that... :-) And KC is a pretty neat town, anyway... lots of cool stuff...we went to a water park there which was pretty awesome...it was actually on the Kansas side, but you just flip back and forth there, no big whoop.
      Hope school is going well - keep on keeping it Gingery!

  2. I got two reminders regarding your Facebook project. As I said before I'm not on Facebook and can't join as non-member of Facebook. I just don't like Facebook.

    1. ...you know, for the life of me, I don't know HOW FB is sending you stuff from me... I think that has been my biggest 'reservation' about FB...it seems to broadcast all your stuff everywhere... not a good thing to yield 'control' to a computer program... so, sorry about that, CS...hopefully it will 'die down' after a bit - I am not really posting much, will just go over there when a G-ology post is 'posted'... ...but hey it got you to comment here, so...hope you are doing swimmingly!!!

      KIG, Lady C!!!

    2. See, Facebook is creepy. ;o)

      Don't bother, I create a filter tag "Facebook" and link it to trashcan. Your stuff most certainly isn't trash at all, it's just Facebook that gotta be trashed, from where ever it might intrude....

      Tonight concerted twitterbomb action, gotta move and type my shells......

    3. ...good deal... I have a few that jump right to 'junk mail'...

      KIG, Clarissa! ...oh, BTW, have you voted on the Big Actress contest yet? Jean Arthur is up against Una Merkel...really love Una, but...had to go with JA, of course...

      Delete
    4. I also got a couple of those e-mails from Facebook claiming to be you and asking me to join up. I really don't like Facebook! I don't like Twitter either so I'm definitely falling behind the times!
      KIG and I'll keep tuning in here for all my Ginger news :)

    5. ...well, hopefully all that will cease...or at least ya can dump it in the 'junk bin' automatically... sorry for the extracurricular stuff there...that's why I had a lot of 'hesitation' hooking up to FB...I need to go on there and check out if there are 'toggles' to quit sending all that...

      I'm hoping to get rolling tomorrow with some stuff here... the 'rest of the fam' here are sick...i am finally OK - so no church tomorrow... I'll round up some stuff on here for sure...

      KIG, 'e'!!

  3. Re: notifications....I've noticed that Blogger has changed and started sending out email updates to people who subscribe to your blog via email (versus just "following" on Blogger). Perhaps that's the kind of notification that Clarissa is talking about?

    Cute little clip there! Nice to know that Ginger is remembered in her birth state at least. :)

    1. hmmmm...that's interesting as well... I bet there's a 'toggle switch' somewhere in the settings to turn that off... I am following one blog - 'speakeasy'...not sure if it's even 'blogger' or some other 'format'...but it sends out e-mails to me every few days...
      one day all of this rigmarole will be 'stabilized', and we can all just get down to the business of 'controlled communication'... I guess...

      Thanks for the info, Betsy! hope all is well for you - did y'all get a heap of snow a few days back? I know Chicago did...My company's branch office in chi-town shut down Tuesday afternoon due to snow...

      KIG!
