Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We were just discussing how foggy it is this morning. It looks like the opening to a mystery novel or something. Not thrilled that sunrise is starting later now, but we've all slept better for the last few days because of the reduced humidity, so I guess it's a trade-off. One thing that we're never willing to compromise about around here is coffee. BDH and Little Buddha say it's ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Tuesday Clutter. Microsoft announced that it... Read more →


I recently read a book called, The Introvert Advantage, by Marti Olsen Laney, which explains what it means to be an introvert, and the advantages and disadvantages which come with that temperament. It's a fascinating book, and it can be helpful for anyone who is an introvert or deals with an introvert, because we see the world in a completely different fashion than extroverts, which can lead to a lot of tension. I've always known I was an introvert, but to see my entire life laid out in print was a little unnerving. Laney writes that there's a continuum of... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? We were just looking over the to-do list for the week. There's a decent amount of running around involved over the next few days. BDH and Little Buddha have already volunteered to make sure I'm properly caffeinated, which is very kind of them. They're telling me that the first pot of coffee is ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's kick off the week with some Monday Clutter. We wrote here yesterday that Donald Trump likely had no idea what White... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We were just discussing how it's a touch on the chilly side in here this morning. Not that it's "cold," it's just not already 80 degrees with 100% humidity. Not in any rush for fall, but last night was the best sleep we've had in about week. Why can't we just live in a world where spring is four months, summer is six months, fall is two months, and then we go right back to spring? Anyway, BDH and Little Buddha made the coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! The birds are chirping like crazy again this morning, but BDH and Little Buddha are pretty sure they're talking about their weekend plans this time. I am in no rush for this month/summer to end, but this humidity can leave anytime now. I woke up at least 20 times last night because there was just no air flow in here. Oh well. The guys have already made the coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter. Donald Trump's ridiculous military parade was... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were just trying to figure out why the birds are chatting up such a storm this morning. BDH thinks they're talking about their weekend plans, and Little Buddha thinks they're discussing how quickly this summer has gone by. Hold on, now they both think the birds were discussing what time you would arrive. Now that we've got that resolved, let's see what's going on in today's headlines. There's a fresh pot of coffee on the counter, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How's your week going? It's been pretty productive around here so far. I managed to get a bike ride in yesterday after all because the weather forecast was wrong again. I'm not sure why I even check it anymore since it seems to have been off more than usual over the last few weeks, but in any case, it felt good to get out there. It was such a treat, that I'll save my thoughts about the days getting darker earlier for another time. For now, BDH and Little Buddha made some coffee, so help yourself... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? The day is off to a rainy start here. It's a good thing I was able to sneak in a bike ride after all yesterday, because it doesn't seem likely today. Of course, I said that yesterday, so maybe I'll be wrong again. I definitely won't have to worry about watering the garden this week. I haven't had to do it for the last few weeks, and the rain probably does a better job, but I miss doing it myself. As long as the flowers are healthy,... Read more →


Our heart(s) skipped a beat when we read a new interview where acclaimed science fiction/fantasy writer Neil Gaiman said he'd like to write another Doctor Who adventure. Gaiman's 2011 story, The Doctor's Wife, remains one of our favorite stories of the modern era. Actually, it's one of the best tales we've ever watched on TV. Gaiman also wrote the Sandman series, Good Omens, and American Gods, which means he's responsible for several of our all-time most favorite books, so would we like to see him write something for the 13 Doctor? Of course! A Neil Gaiman return to Doctor Who... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? It's looking pretty dark outside this morning, and it doesn't seem like I'm going to get my bike ride in today. That's a little disappointing, but oh well. Had a bit of an adventure here yesterday as I got caught in some bad rain on the highway for about 20 minutes. Everything was fine when I first got in the car, but the skies broke open shortly after that. The "highlight" was someone racing through a puddle in the next lane which left me with zero visibility... Read more →
