Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I am dragging like a tired snail at the moment here. These Sunday night baseball games are brutal! I watched the Red Sox - Astros with Dad Clutter at his house last night, and by the time I got home and finally shut off my brain, it was some time after 2:00 in the morning. I'd probably still be asleep now, except that I didn't want to miss any of you! Oh well, keep the coffee coming. Speaking of coffee, there's a fresh pot ready, so help... Read more →


I tried to keep the stories about the case involving Michelle Carter and Conrad Roy III at a distance over the last few weeks. Carter is the Massachusetts teenage girl who was charged with involuntary manslaughter for basically verbally berating Roy (a troubled teen who had made several suicide attempts in the past) into killing himself. The two teens had a mostly "virtual" relationship, and Carter, who sounds deeply troubled herself, was accused of causing Roy's eventual death with only her words. It's an awful case, and I just didn't have the energy to get into another suicide story at... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Do you remember back when some people turned on their heat this month? That was funny. It's Monday, and I'm already running a little bit late because of last night's Red Sox game (more on that in a minute.) Sunday night games really should start at 7:05 like any other night. It doesn't look good on TV when so many people have to leave later in the game because they've got to go to work in the morning. Plus, by the time I finally got to sleep, I think the sun was coming... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Hey, look at that, it's raining again. I'm starting to feel a little bit like Clark Griswold pointing out Big Ben and Parliament to his kids. That's okay, though. The sun will eventually return, I'll be able to go back to playing in the dirt, and everything will be fine. In the meantime, we've got headlines to sort through, and plenty of coffee to enjoy. BDH and Little Buddha made a fresh pot, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Tuesday Clutter. Sorry, Red Sox fans: David Ortiz still appears... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How's your week going so far? No complaints on this end. It didn't rain like I was expecting it to yesterday, so I had some time to play in the garden, which is always great. I don't think it will be too much longer before the next wave of flowers arrives. Our newest book review was also posted yesterday, so all in all, it was a good day. Now, we move on to today's adventures. BDH and Little Buddha have a fresh pot of coffee ready to go, so help...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We hope you're having a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend, as we pause to remember those who were killed while serving in the military. It sounds like rain is in the forecast today. Maybe that's why the birds were chirping up a storm early this morning. There's a fresh pot of coffee ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Monday Clutter. The Boston Red Sox lost 5 - 0 to the Seattle Mariners yesterday, thus snapping their six-game winning streak. Rick Porcello was... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back. Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Still pretty stressed about the Clutter Tree at the moment. I think it's clear that we presented the stronger case and showed that there's no justification for removing the tree, but the person leading the drive to cut it down seems obsessed, and I just don't know how it's going to go, so that's the primary stress factor this week. Of course, the irony is that one of the great benefits of the tree is how much it helps me take my mind off of whatever is... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Moving a little slowly on this end at the moment. The annual compost delivery for the garden arrived this weekend. I put the car in the garage and then had the order dumped in the driveway so that I truly can't go anywhere until I've finished spreading it around the garden. This is the fourth time I've done this, and yet there's still part of my brain that thinks, "That pile doesn't seem so big. I have to spread it carefully the first time to make sure all of the plants get at... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. It looks like we've got rain in the forecast all day today, but that's fine. It will be good for both the Clutter Tree and the garden. The birds are chirping once again, so BDH and Little Buddha are set to spend the day bird watching, as usual. However, before they get to that, they want you to know that they made some coffee for you, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter. The good news is that the Boston Red Sox... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How's your week going? Anything exciting happening? We've got a fresh pot of coffee ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday Clutter. The Boston Red Sox teed off on the Toronto Blue Jays pitchers for an 8-7 win last night. The Sox had 15 hits, and heck even Pablo Sandoval went 3-4. Red Sox starting pitcher Brian Johnson did just well enough (four runs and seven hits over five innings) to pick up his first career win in his second Major League start, so cheers to... Read more →
