How are you? How's your day going? It's pretty grey out there. BDH, Little Buddha and I are a little thrown off by the fact that the Red Sox are gone and the Patriots have the week off. However, there's still work to be done, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Sunday Clutter.
The reports of the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines continue to worsen, as now it's possible that over 10,000 people were killed by the storm. Here's the link to the Philippine Red Cross if you'd like to donate to help with their efforts.
Cheers to the Obama administration for issuing regulations to require that mental illness be covered by health insurance in the same way that physical illnesses are. Mental health problems can be every bit as devastating to an individual as a physical concern, and people dealing with them should have the same access to coverage for services.
The fact that Scott Brown is apparently getting encouragement from national Republicans to run for US Senate from New Hampshire against incumbent Jeanne Shaheen is nothing more than a reflection of the reality the the GOP doesn't have any strong native candidates at this point. As far as Brown is concerned, it's just more buzz to increase his appearance fees.
A friend of mine wrote on his Facebook page that Sam Adams Winter Lager is now available in his area. I haven't had a chance to go to the store yet to see if that's true here, but if it is, it doesn't bother me as much as the early release of the other seasonal beers. Granted, it only started feeling like fall about a week ago, but it's not as irritating as when they sell Octoberfest in August. Of course, come back and see me when the Spring Ale goes on sale in February.
Close enough. (pic via whosisbrew.com)
All I've heard about this year's Boston Celtics team is that they'll be terrible and lucky to win four games all season as they start the rebuilding process. That may well be the case, but as long as one of this wins is a victory over LeBron James and the Miami Heat, I'm good with that.
Wow, does Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger want to get out of town?
Ahh, the baseball season may be over, but Alex Rodriguez is still making life difficult for the New York Yankees. He really is the gift that just keeps on giving.
I just came across the trailer for the new movie Out of the Furnace, which stars Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Forest Whitaker, Woody Harrelson and others. Looks like a nice slapstick comedy, don't you think? No, seriously, this could be good:
Okay kids, that's going to do it for now. The Internet continues to make me a happy camper as the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special grows closer and closer. Yesterday we had the first short trailer, and now we get an extended peek at the show. It's hard not to get my hopes up too high, because this just looks awesome. See for yourself with today's, "Clip of the Day."
Thanks for stopping by, everyone. It was great to see you as always. Tomorrow marks an annual tradition around here, so you might be able to guess which "Classic Clutter" will be posted. It's one of my favorites, so I hope you'll stop by to check it out. In the meantime, enjoy the rest of your day, and we'll see you back here again for more fun and coffee soon. Until next time, that's today's Clutter, and we are outta here.
