Hope everyone out there will celebrate the life of 'our girl' by watching a GingerFilm, listening to a few GingerTunes, or just simply reflect on the life of Ginger, and how it inspires you.
Thanks again to all who follow Gingerology - it's never easy on this day, but it's so great to have all of y'all here and on FaceBook to share with... and as always...
Keep It... Gingery... ...in perpetuity.

Obviously, the author is a big Ginger fan, so that reason ALONE should gain the support of we Gingerologists...I plan on purchasing it! Would have been cool if an actual pic of Ginger was on the cover, but guess there's the 'use of likeness' fees hanging out there... t least it's a pink dress with polka-dots! ALMOST as if the author has been 'lurking' on some of the Gingerology Group banter on FB...which is COOL!!!
HERE is the link to info from the book's publisher, Buried River Press.
Buy it!!! NOW!!!

Of course, Kat has given us some great reviews of past performances of this show, and she would also know the 'makeup' of this troupe (if not the same cast) as compared to the one she saw awhile back... so Kat, any input would be great! ...of course, I believe you have a few other things going on that the moment, however, so...keep your priorities, lady!
Anyway, here's the link to the performances, which will be from April 28th to May 9th...hope y'all get to see it! It would be pretty cool to see it get to the States...
Hope all is well with everyone - hey! We're over halfway through April without any problems, save for some bad events in the 'general world affairs' category, which is pretty much a continual thing, unfortunately... so, let's all hang in there, and...
Keep It Gingery!!!

Now, of course, the 64 dollar question remains...WHEN are going to see a DVD release?
ANY info anyone out there may have would be greatly appreciated by all Gingerologists! This definitely includes anyone who is employed by Twentieth-Century / Fox Studios, of course...
Keep Hope Alive, y'all!!!
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
