...Installment #1 of "You KNOW you're a Gingerologist when..."
...hope everyone is doing well out there! I know Kat has had a MAJOR issue losing many Gingerfilms...but hopefully a concerted effort by Gingerologists can rectify that situation in VERY short order...Hang in there, Kat!!!
AND, while I have y'all here, a few 'programming notes'... first off, I have made some fair progress on the GingerFilm blogs, in terms of setting up links - those just below the Gingerology 'avatar' pic... I only have the "TCM Links" left to do... hope these will be of use to y'all, and of course ALL of them are 'perpetual works in progress', so... keep that in mind...
It's been fun trying to keep up with folks on FaceBook, but sometimes if you miss a day, it takes quite a bit to 'catch up'... and unfortunately I probably have missed some things... but hopefully not much... I'm sure y'all will keep me 'in the loop', as it were...
Until the next Gingery post...
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
