Well, as you all know, April is not my fave month... it's been somewhat 'uneventful' this year, however, so if we can crank out another week and a half, we're in the clear... but with that, I have been rather busy as of late, thus the posting deficiency. Hopefully things will get a bit more 'stable', and more posting will occur. I have been adding bits and pieces to the GingerFilm blogs, so you may want to chack a few of those out...
I've also been working on the post for the Kate Hepburn Blogathon for Margaret Perry... still a ways to go, but will have it ready to roll for the event... stay tuned.
Well, that's about it, y'all... hope everyone is well out there, and until next 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
