HAPPY SEVENTH BIRTHDAY TO...

...GINGEROLOGY!!!
Well, on this day seven long (or short, depending on where you are standing) years ago, Hu created Gingerology... The Beautiful Science of Miss Ginger Rogers! At first, I was just going to make a 'general blog' in order to communicate with other folks who had Ginger blogs... but soon I figured out that Ginger is the ONLY reason I set UP a blog, so... Gingerology was born.
It's amazing that I've been able to keep things going for so long... not that there's EVER a shortage of Gingery Goodness, mind you, but in a medium which things seem to come and go at a rapid pace (i.e., the internet), it's cool to have this site persist, even with the barrage of awesomeness that is FaceBook.
On this anniversary/birthday/whatever, it may be a good time to 're-vamp' the blog a bit... nothing too drastic, mind you, but... noticeable... not the least of which is the 'header pic' for the blog... I love the current one, but, it's time for a change... SO...here's where Y'ALL come in...

I am choosing three different GingerPics as candidates for the header... and (I think y'all probably know where this is headed...) a popular VOTE will determine the new Gingerology Header Pic!!! I'll post the 'official vote' post with the pictures up for candidacy in a few days (probably this weekend...)
...so, once again, THANKS so much for supporting this blog... it means a lot to me, and to y'all as well, I reckon, in that it's another avenue in which Ginger Rogers' legacy is documented and discussed, hopefully in an entertaining and educational manner... ...and, as evermore...

...Keep It Gingery, y'all!!!
