1873: Lee Kohlmar, who starred with Ginger in the film “The Tenderfoot” (as Waiter), was born in Forth (Eckental), Bavaria, Germany.

1935: The song “The Continental”, written by Con Conrad and Herb Magidson, and sung by Ginger in “The Gay Divorcee”, won the very first Best Song Academy Award; the ceremonies were held at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, California. The movie “The Gay Divorcee” was nominated for several other awards, but was generally shut out by “It Happened One Night”. Another Ginger-related tune, “Carioca” from “Flying Down to Rio”, was also nominated.

1953: Paul Hurst, who starred with Ginger in the films “The Thirteenth Guest” (as Detective Grump), “Romance in Manhattan” (as Joe the Policeman), and “Star of Midnight” (as Detective Corbett), died in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, at the age of 64.

...um... is it still September?

....dang time is just chug-a-lugging onward...

Well, it's been busy... the kids are back at school, so homework assistance and early bedtimes... that, coupled with a pretty busy work schedule the last few months, and Hu has been a good bit out of pocket, unfortunately...
...and as I was just looking thru the 'Day in Gingerology' posts, I noticed that it was FOUR years ago Hu and the Crew went to Boston U to check out the GingerCentury exhibit... dang... I STILL love that pic right there... I can't remember who told me prior to the trip to snap that one from the 'collage' they had displayed, but thanks again, as I've never seen it anywhere else...

Well, to multiply the 'things which get in the way of Gingeryness' factor, I also purchased a new computer -my old laptop, which runs Windows 7, is just about out of juice... I may try to update it to 10, as it incessantly reminded me to do over the last year or so... but not sure if it is 'physically' spent as well as 'behind the times', operating-system-wise...   ANYWAY, my new one is cool... a desktop - the old 'tower' deal... an ASUS... so far, so good... coupled with a 27-inch Samsung monitor and a backlit keyboard, I'm ready to GingerUP, y'all!!!
I want to get back on the GingerBinge deal... and also back on the LIFE magazine project... while keeping up with basic GingerNews going on...

SO... here we go...

KIG, y'all!!!
