GingeRemembrance 2018...

...on this sorrowful day, it's good to think of the upcoming Festival in Independence, and how we will celebrate the legacy of this incredible lady who left us on this day 23 long years ago... ...which will be an avenue for keeping her memory and priceless body of work alive for us as well as for generations of Gingerologists to follow...

Hope y'all can make it in July...

...Strange things afoot in the Rogue River Valley...

Well, this is a bit different, altho... it is ultimately GingeRelated, as it concerns the area of the country where her ranch is situated - the Rogue River Valley, around Medford, Oregon...
...with MUCHO thanks to Ms. Ginger Peachy for a gnarly 'then and now' pic of the 4R...

...and WHAT is this strangeness, you may ask? Well, it seems like the 'native varmints' around this region are not as plentiful as they used to be, and the ones that migrate thru there are not showing up much, either... which leads us to THIS link, from the site Earthfiles... now, anybody out there who watches the TV show Ancient Aliens should know the author of this site, Linda Moulton Howe... I'm sorta into all this 'paranormal' stuff (But I'm NOT going on the GingerHouse Ghost Hunt... as... ...well, let's just say I definitely fall into the 'Shaggy/Scooby' side of things as far as having the heebie-jeebies goes...), and this report is generally connecting these occurrences with a potential impending cataclysmic event on the West Coast.  It is a bit unnerving that there was a recent quake near L.A., but... they have quite a few on a 'normal' basis, it seems...
...well, not sure if this pic is at the Ranch, but...let's just say that it is (although that looks more like a lake than a river, especially a 'Rogue' type of river...) ...I never really get around to studying the background location of these type of pics, anyway, but concentrate solely on the FOREground images...

Well, that's about it... was just interesting how those folks were chiming in on the lack of varmints... and a few ranchers, so... maybe the current owner of 4R?  Maybe the critters have migrated elsewhere knowing Ginger is no longer around... that's MY take, and what I would think if I were a critter... ...even those which are most likely not native to the region, such as Baby Leo...

Hope y'all have a Gingery week!!!

2018 TCM Classic Film Festival... a couple of GingerFilms are on the docket...

...which are...



...each of which are to be presented on Thursday, April 26th... There are a few more 'TBA' slots on the SCHEDULE, so... who knows, maybe Hat Check Girl will get another spin... If anyone is lucky enough to attend, please reply - FaceBook is obviously the more 'accessible' avenue - but report in with any 'intro' stuff they may note for these films - I assume they do the 'intro dialogue' before each film like they typically do on TCM...

Unfortunately, I've never come CLOSE to attending the Festival... really wish they would have SOMEthing akin to it in Atlanta, which IS TCM's 'birthplace', after all... but hard to deny the setting of Hollywood for any type of film festival...

...and with that, here's wishing y'all a great big ol' GINGERY weekend!!


Awards...Thanks, Y'all!!!

...I TRULY appreciate these, and the kind words regarding this blog...thanks for all the inspiration I have drawn from each of your blog sites, which are all awesome in their unique ways!!!
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
