Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Things are okay here at the moment. I'm two days away from being able to eat hard foods again, and all I want for Christmas at this point is some potato chips. Speaking of Christmas, have you finished your shopping yet? If not, we've got a great little shop to recommend. I was just thinking that BDH and Little Buddha might need their own t-shirt at some point. Speaking of the guys, they say that the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. Sorry we're off to bit of a late start today. We had some technical difficulties that kept us from checking in with you. I wanted to yell at the folks who were responsible, but BDH and Little Buddha decided they should deal with the glitches while I shoveled the driveway instead. Definitely the right move. We're back in business, so let's check out the headlines before I have to shovel again (especially before the freezing rain gets here.) The guys made you a fresh pot of coffee, so help yourself...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I know it's only Monday, but I'm looking forward to the end the week a bit when these stitches finally come out. Yogurt is great, but bring on the some chips and crackers. In the meantime, I should probably take another pass at cleaning up the driveway a bit today. I also need to take another look at snowblowers, but it feels like that could involve the loss of a limb. BDH and Little Buddha tell me not to worry, but I'm not sure they fully believe...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. I was just checking out the weather forecast. Apparently winter is just about here. Temperatures will be mostly in the 20's and 30's over the next 10 days, and our first snow is due to arrive on Saturday morning. It looks like we're expecting 3-6 inches tomorrow. Hmm, that seems like a change. I'll be honest, I can handle the temperatures (he said before the fun begins.) I'd just be happy to never deal with snow again, which is kind of an issue when one lives in New England. Oh... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Things are fine on this end at the moment. I can't wait for my gum surgery to finish healing. It's a nuisance pain more than anything. However, I'm allowed to go back to the gym now, so that should help. Everyone here is hard at work on their holiday shopping. I'm still trying to figure out what to get BDH and Little Buddha. Maybe I should buy something from the Clutter Shop since they've worked so hard on it! Oh, here they come. (We'll discuss this later.)... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? It's pretty cloudy outside right now, and the forecast calls for some steady (and at times heavy) rain later today until tomorrow morning. Happy Tuesday! Once that clears up, it sounds like the temperatures are going to start dropping a bit. Part of me is okay with that, because I'd like the ground to freeze so the squirrels will stop digging up the garden for their nuts. The other part of me thinks that mindset is going to last for about 10 minutes once we hit the... Read more →


Donald Trump seems intent on making the world a worse place on an hourly basis. Keeping up with his latest hateful, misogynistic, racist, fourth grade level tweets is exhausting. There's also the real damage done by terrible policies, appointments of incompetents, and the general erosion of the social fabric of the United States, which is apparently being done at the behest of the President of Russia. So, that's depressing. Given those facts, the country deserves a gift during the holiday season while we all wait for Robert Mueller to indict the Great Pumpkin. Our recommendation is to treat yourselves to... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Everything is decent on this end at the moment. I saw Nick Offerman's show last night, and I haven't laughed that hard all year. He's got a unique sense of humor and a lovely singing voice, so if you're a fan of his, you should check it out. The only problem was that, much like a Sunday night New England Patriots game, I was so revved up when I got home, that it took about an hour for my head to slow down enough to fall asleep. BDH and Little Buddha say that... Read more →


Hi everyone, Hey there, how are you? Yes, I survived the dentist on Friday and made it out of there in one piece (and with a few stitches.) My face feels a little puffy, and it's still a bit sore. Sort of like a mild toothache/sinus infection. However, it's not as bad as I was expecting. I had something done about 10 years ago, and I thought this was going to be a similar experience. I remember is being miserable for about a week, which was part of the reason I procrastinated for so long on this. This is more... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy December 1 to you all! Of course, I've chosen to celebrate the start of the month by visiting the dentist for gum surgery later today. Good times. Not looking forward to it at all, but hopefully it means I'll be rid of the mild pain/pressure on that side of my face that I've had for ages. It's like the start of a sinus infection that never comes to fruition. It would be great for that to finally go away, but there's a heavy price to pay to make it happen. I'm pretty sure,...
