Daily Tidbit for Wednesday: Unlike yesterday, we do have a Birthday to report for today. And an important Birthday it is as Flossie Hannah turns a robust 24 once again! Happy birthday Flossie!
There is nothing on the Events Calendar for today, but tonight, HCCI will once again offer you the opportunity to participate in some Xtreme Fitness classes at the Cutrer Mansion. The “fun” begins at 5:00 p.m. so be there or else you have to do two classes!
Also tonight, it is time for you to test your trivial mind as John Sherman hosts Country Music Trivia at Stone Pony! The brain strain begins at 7:15 p.m. Go early and order an extra pizza for us.
Steve Kolbus and the Clarksdale Blues Revue will be onstage tonight at Ground Zero.
The e-newsletter over at Stone Pony got into a rant about football this week, so we have no idea who will be playing there tomorrow night. So, in order to punish said guru, call them and ask who is playing out on the sidewalk/patio. You can read the e-newsletter for yourself by Clicking Here, and while you are there you can sign up for their newsletter.
Want to know what the real problem is with our government? Well, it goes down to basic intellect. For example, we were recently sent a copy of the “Official Recapitulation” sheet of the recent runoff election. We looked at it a couple of times knowing that something was wrong before we finally figured out the problem.
On the sheet it states that, “The Democratic Election Commission will prepare three (3) Official Recapitulation Sheets containing the vote of the entire county by precinct. They will forward one copy to Delbert Hoseman, Secretary of State, 401 Mississippi St. JACKSON, MS, 39201, file one copy with the State Executive Committee, file one copy with the Circuit Clerk of the County and keep the third copy for their records.”
Call us silly if you must, but no matter how we count the copies, there are four copies, not three! And before you mention the original, it does not mention an original, just “three (3) …Sheets.” So, apparently you don’t have to be able to count to run an election. (Which, of course, could explain some of the outcomes!)
We recently sent a recipe to our daughter person that we found in an online version of a British newspaper. We do not normally care for avocados, but the first and second recipes on this list of ten actually made our mouth water. Click Here for 10 Avocado recipes (Including the Avocado Ice Cream recipe!). Oh, and good luck on those conversions! lolol
We received an e-mail about a class for those of you who would like to start your own business. There is a class tomorrow in Batesville and for more info, “To register by telephone please call 1-800-725-7232 (For MS area codes only).

There will also be another class the next day in Grenada. “To register by telephone please call 1-800-725-7232 (For MS area codes only). Location: UMSBDC, Elizabeth Jones Library, Grenada County”
Have a great day Clarksdale and Coahoma.
