Weather blues & Mississippi Blues. Plus BBQ.

In the scheme of things, like the ongoing assault on our rule of law, it’s no biggie.

But still, you’d think IBM and Watson could get it right.

The Weather Channel mobile app, which I look at with fanatical regularity on my iPhone and iPad, thinks I’m in Pass Christian Isles. The dot on the map shows my correct location in Bay St. Louis and yet my weather is across the bridge and to the left. It’s only a degree or two off usually, but still. IBM. Watson. Really?

I’ve asked for a location correction so many times I’ve tired of trying. Filled in the form, gave my actual location, sent it off by email. Yet the next time I look at the weather, it’s for Pass Christian Isles. 

Maybe if I took a Sharpie to it…..

Got your tickets yet?

100 Men Hall is  hosting a Blues & BBQ Brunch on Saturday, Feb. 15, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., starring blues guitarist and vocalist Tommie “T-Bone” Pruitt.

T-Bone has played Mississippi blues for more than 60 years. In 2010, T-Bone’s contributions were memorialized when his name was added to a Mississippi Blues Trail marker in Laurel.

The Blues brunch will feature award-winning BBQ by Murky Waters for purchase, and is sponsored by INFINITI of Southern Mississippi.

Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door.
