...is here! ...not sure what it entails, but...
...this pic is a pretty bodacious start! It's also cool to check out all the background (although it's VERY tough to get past the foreground...), which is a pretty neat view of Ginger's Gilcrest Drive crib... I believe the cupola at the right is part of her place, as the pool/court area was built at the 'high point' of the lot... and all the ironwork 'walls' back there are still there, at least the last report I had...and from what showed up on MapQuest (...yeah, like y'all don't MapQuest or Google earth Ginger houses!)

Well, a few 'housekeeping' issues... ...as Ginger proves that she looks fab in ANYthing...
FIRST - the 'Ginger on TV' feature has been removed as a 'page' (the 'bullet point' links on the top right of the home page), and will now just be on the 'main page', which is the more direct route anyway...
SECOND - after a bit of indecision, the 'This Day in Gingerology' page (the 'complete year' list) has also been deleted, as the replication of adding items to it along with my 'main list' in my computer proved to be sketchy... but of course the feature itself will remain, and in fact will hopefully get a bit augmented if Hu's efforts are fruitful...
THIRD - just noticed it's been purt near a YEAR since the last GingerReview... which is pretty inexcusable... SO, I'm getting back with it, el pronto... stay tuned... no, REALLY... :-)
FOURTH - The GingerFaceBook Community is just incredible... SO much info to be had there, along with an ENDLESS array of GingerPics, such as the one below - which is one of my 'instant faves'!!! If you haven't already, ya REALLY need to join us over there...

...and oh yeah! I received my '4-R Milk Bottle' - pretty awesome! I haven't even taken it out of the 'bubble' wrap, but you can see thru it, and its awesome! Hope to be able to display it sooner or later...most likely when my boy 'Bam-Bam' is a good bit older... oh, like, 42 or something... ;-)

...We here at Gingerology sincerely hope everyone is having a Great Gingery Summer! Hope to see ya over on FaceBook, as well as here, of course...




  1. That is so cool that you finally got your 'Ginger milk bottle'! :)

    1. ...always wanted one! And it IS the 'real deal', certified, and also noted by Ms. Roberta Olden herself! Now I just need to figure out how to display it with a 5-year-old boy running around the house... um... it will be aa few more years until it is 'on display', under further thought... :-)

      ...good to hear form you, Ron! Hope all is well - hey, are you on FaceBook? If so, join up with all the GingerFolks over there... they are REALLY into Ginger... I mean, I am, of course, but THEY are 24/7!!! Well, kinda like me... anyway... just hit the FB link at the bottom right column of this page...

      KIG, Ron!!!
