Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in and have a seat. How are you? Is it just me, or did this week go by quickly? Maybe it's just the excitement of it not being January anymore. BDH and Little Buddha have moved on from their disappointment about the Super Bowl. They've got their Red Sox shirts out, and they can't wait for the pitchers and catchers to have their first workout next Wednesday. BDH thinks it's a birthday present just for him, and I'm not going to argue with him. In the meantime, let's check out today's headlines. The guys... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? BDH and Little Buddha have a fresh pot of coffee ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Wednesday Clutter. Robert Mueller interviewed Attorney General Jeff Sessons last week, and now the special counsel wants to talk to Donald Trump. Between the firings of Michael Flynn and James Comey, and previous attacks on Sessions, it seems clear that Mueller is looking at obstruction of justice charges against Trump. Will the Great Pumpkin do himself in? Friends of Trump have reportedly urged him not... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Looks like it's going to be a rainy Tuesday. BDH and Little Buddha have already picked out their books to read for today, but don't worry, they also made you some coffee. Help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter. We hoping for the best for our readers from Alaska to California after a tsunami warning was issued because of a 7.9 earthquake in the Gulf of Alaska. Good for the Boston Red Sox for "dramatically" increasing the safety netting at Fenway Park this year. The netting will... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We were just checking out the weather forecast. It's supposed to hit a high of about 50 degrees today, so BDH and Little Buddha want to know if they can put on their shorts later. The warm temperatures of the next two days, along with the oncoming rain, should reduce the snow levels around here, at least for a little while. That would be nice, since some of the sidewalks near Clutter Headquarters are a little challenging to navigate right now. Apparently not everyone got the memo about shoveling. Anyway, we've got plenty... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We're just looking out the window, waiting for the snow bomb to arrive. The flakes have just started falling, and the real fun is supposed to begin in about an hour or so. Hopefully the Clutter Tree is ready. We've got heat, power, food, and...what am I missing...oh yeah, coffee! BDH and Little Buddha just made a fresh pot, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter before things get too crazy. The feud we've all been waiting for has finally arrived. Donald Trump and Steve... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Cold enough for you? Good lord, January has a bit of an attitude so far. Thought we were at least going to be spared some more snow for a while, but now the forecast calls for some heavy accumulation tomorrow. I asked BDH and Little Buddha who was going to be responsible for shoveling out the car and the driveway once the storm is over. They just stared at me, smiling the entire time. Right, I better start stretching now. In the meantime, the guys made you some coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? We're all a little giddy here at the moment. First off, tomorrow is the shortest day of the year, so once we get through that, it's time to start adding on the sunlight! Yes, it's still only December, and it will still be dark around 4:30 in the afternoon, but 30 seconds here, and 30 seconds there, and suddenly it's not dark until 4:45! Every little bit helps, and we can't wait. The other big news is that BBC America's annual Doctor Who marathon has begun! We've... Read more →


I'm sitting here, staring out the window, sipping my third (or is it fourth?) Dunkin' Donuts (DD) coffee of the day, while wondering how much longer this light snow will fall. The excuses for procrastinating on some more shoveling start increasing in my head, when a news headline catches my eye: Dunkin' is teaming up with a Worcester brewery to create the first-ever beer made with DD beans. Dunkin' in the morning, and now Dunkin' in the evening? It's the second Christmas miracle of the week! (The first being me finding my lost credit card, this time before I called... 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 →


Confession: We're starting to think about baseball around here. Yes, it's true, it's not even December, Tom Brady and company are gearing up for another Super Bowl run, and baseball doesn't begin for months. However, the first sign of the new season is on its way: The 2018 Boston Red Sox spring training tickets go on sale at 10am ET on Saturday, December 2. A trip to spring training is a perfect holiday gift for the Red Sox fan in your life. There's nothing like escaping the cold winter weather to enjoy a game or two at JetBlue Park. There... Read more →
