...Gingerology's First Post of 2015...

...yeah, yeah, 'bout dang time, right... I know Miss Tremont has been a bit ruffled with the lack of posting as of late...  
...and even though she's beautiful when angry, she's also quite dangerous in this state... so best be getting on with the post proper...

...First off, hope everyone had a great holiday season! We did quite well, but had some sickness bounce back and forth over the last weeks... currently Bam-Bam is a bit froggy... but on the mend.

As to what 2015 holds for Gingerology, well, the sky's the limit, right?
..BTW, still waiting for a framed one of this pic, to hang over my 'split-foyer'... well, if I can pass that with Mrs. Huey...um, might be tough there... anyway, this one is cool, if a bit 'different'...

It generally comes down to TIME, and hopefully that will be a bit better managed by your humble author... the goal here is to get the GingerFilm reviews cranked back up (we left off with Lady Dale, but didn't get to 'the Huey Treatment' for Top Hat... I'll get right on it... no, REALLY...) - it's a bit strange that I got to GingerFilm #35 before the 'hiatus'... wonder if I should pick up at 'Harlow' and work backwards, to have a 'Grand Finale' at roughly 'Swing Time'...

Other stuff should get cranking here soon as well... with the gobs of pics and info on FaceBook, the focus here at G-ology will most likely shift a bit... oh, don't worry, GingerPics will grace this blog QUITE prominently... but along with the resumption of GingerFilm Reviews, more 'HueyView' stuff will be going on... please throw out any topic to discuss, and...well, most likely we will discuss!

I would also love to add some GingerTunes on here... I'll have to figure it out... still not sure why music is so tough to place here, but not videos...

With that, THANKS for your continued support of this blog... starting the second half-decade of this puppy, and hope to keep it interesting, informative, and most of all...

GINGERY!!!
...speaking of which...

 KIG, y'all!!!

  1. I wish you a film-classically swell and especially deeply Gingerly 2015!

    Loading up music files works best with SoundCloud, which are easily to embed in Blogspot. Of course this means, you have to sign up there and start an account. Soundcloud.com doens't work much different from YouTube, but it's of course only audio. The sound quality is very good.

      Elisabeth Zimmermann is a 'historical' person I invented. So, this has nothing to do with me directly, although her bio is very realistic (until the internet is involved in A.D.1714).
