Saturday update

Live Music Alert! Six String Lovers play the Blind Bear tonight from 10 PM to 1 AM. I have heard Charvey Mac many times but only a couple of times have I heard him with his musical partner in crime Vanessa Sudbury. It should be a fantastic show and I am really excited! Going to be a long day!

Whenever I’m in front of a computer, I tend to keep a tab open to Google News so I can stay current on events in our nation and our world. Yesterday I learned something valuable and I want to pass it on to any readers I have who also use Google News. There’s a way to permanently boot a source off your news feed. Mouse over a story from that source, and a menu of icons will appear right below the link. Click the icon that looks like three vertical dots and when a menu pops up, click “Hide stories from (this source).” Thanks to this trick, I never have to have Fox News cluttering up my feed again. More tips for getting the most out of Google News

I try to keep my audience in mind when selecting content for my blog. For example, I know that the people who sit at the corner table at Max’s Sports Bar stalk my blog daily, if not hourly. So for them, I present the following: 27 senior discounts you didn’t know you could get. Don’t miss out on that free small drink on your next visit to KFC! How cool would it be to get a pic of that drink in a green koozie and post it on Facebook?

The James Wiseman-less Memphis Tigers host Jackson State today at FedExForum at noon. The Tigers distributed toys to children at the Davis Community Center yesterday.

It’s one of those doubleheader days that FedExForum employees love so much. A mere seven hours after the Tigers tip off, the Grizzlies host the Sacramento Kings.

All right folks. I have a knock-knock joke.


Who’s there?


Azure who?

The Memphis Grizzlies will have a dachshund dash at halftime of the January 14 game vs. the Houston Rockets. Deadline to enter your dachshund is January 3. At least 6 dogs will be chosen to compete in the Dash, and their owners will receive complimentary tickets to the game.

If you’re a fan of New Wing Order’s award winning Memphis Buffalo wings, now you can have that sauce not only on wings, but on anything you want, anytime you want. New Wing Order is now selling the Memphis Buffalo sauce on its online store. The sauce combines traditional Buffalo hot flavor and a nod to Memphis’ rich BBQ tradition.

Off to Bardog, a place that will see a lot of me over the next several days. Gotta pace myself today so I’m in good shape for Six String Lovers at the Bear tonight. Back tomorrow with more news.
