Monday update

Has anyone got an extra MacBook power block and cord? Contact me at if you have one to spare.

On to the news….

Island 45 plays the Blind Bear this Saturday from 9 pm to 1 am. That’s my friend Jenn’s band that mostly plays shows out east. Go see them!

The Midsouth Farm and Gin Show will be at the Renasant Convention Center this coming weekend. Please make them feel welcome. They are super nice people and they spend a lot of money here.

The Grizzlies host the Brooklyn Nets tonight at 7. TV is Bally Sports.

Penny’s Tigers improved to 20-8 and 9-6 in conference with a win over FAU yesterday, 78-74. The Tigers could potentially have a 25-win season and still miss the NCAA tournament

Keep an eye on the weather. Strong storms are possible Tuesday and Wednesday. MWN blog

The Trumpster won the South Carolina primary last night.

AT&T will issue a $5 credit to customers affected by its outage last week.

Interesting book I found at the Cossitt Library;

It’s got a 398 call number if anybody wants to come check it out.

I booted up my new (to me) MacBook Pro for the first time yesterday.

It was SO NICE to be back on a Mac after a 3-week hiatus. I was thrilled to get into Gmail, figuring two-factor authentication might be an issue (I no longer have my 901-581- number). And I even got a short blog post done before the battery got low. I won’t be able to use the Mac again, though, until I solve the power situation.

Back tomorrow with more news.
