(It's a cool show anyway, so...WATCH!) ... On PBS... see local listings for times... AND, I have noticed that the shows may be 'streamed' from the PBS website at any time after they are aired, so... COOL!

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...
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!!!
SO... here we go...
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
