It's Finally May...YAY!!!

...the April showers are finally over, to be replaced with the flowers that bloom into May... especially those that perch so divinely upon round tabletops...  ahem...

...where was I?  ...oh yes - just a 'general review' of the state of Gingerology... it's all good, y'all... first off, I have been 'adding content' to the GingerFilm blogs...primarily links...or at least 'page features' for links...it is quite the task to repeat a feature 70+ times... but consistency is the mantra here at G-ology, so hopefully those will be up and running soon...again, ANY suggestions y'all may have (within reason, of course...I'm not a miracle worker, y'know... :-)  ) regarding the FilmBlogs, just holler at me...

Today (May 1) is also the two-year anniversary of THIS:
...which, from all accounts, was a pretty cool event... Hu was REALLY kicking around the idea of heading out there, not only due to this event, but also with the bonus of my third favorite college football program, Oregon, having their 'spring scrimmage' the day before (4/30/11)... it would have been a cool weekend trip...of course, I would have hunted down the 4R Ranch as well... BUT, as fate would have it, the major tornado outbreak came thru here the Wednesday before, and pretty much locked me in for a week or two (I had decided not to go to Oregon before that happened, and it was just weird how that major 'life-changing' event occurred soon afterward...)  But this 'promo' image is so cool in that it obviously uses the G-ology 'icon' of Ginger, which makes you wonder... does Roberta (Olden, not the fictional character in the G&F film of the same name...) ever jump over here on G-ology? I really like to think so... she was a big part of setting up the Oregon event. so, just for good measure...Hi, Ms. Olden!!! :-)

---

Well, in conclusion, I sincerely hope everyone out there is doing well, getting plans for summer set... ....as for me, I plan to get going on the 'Star of Midnight' review soon... uh-huh, that's right...SOON... :-)

Until then,

KIG, y'all!!!
