Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on on, have a seat. How are you? It's a gloomy looking Sunday here at the moment, but I don't think it's supposed to rain until later today, so hopefully I can still sneak in a bike ride. On the other hand, the garden looks terrific, and a little more water always helps. BDH and Little Buddha just brought in the coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter. Since the last time we all met, 12 Russian intelligence officers have been indicted for interfering on behalf of Donald... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in and have a seat. BDH and Little Buddha were just listening to all of the bird chatter this morning. They're pretty sure the birds are looking for four-leaf clovers because today is Friday the 13th. I said I didn't realize that birds were superstitious, and the guys just looked at me and replied, "Neither did we, but that's clearly what they're looking for!" You learn something new every day. The coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Friday (the 13th) Clutter. Now that he's... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? The guys have been watching the Clutter Tree and listening to this one bird squawk all morning. BDH thinks he's calling his friends to come join him in the tree. Little Buddha thinks he might be asking if he can have some coffee. That launched a conversation about how they would get him the coffee. It sounds like there's a conveyor belt involved. In any case the guys want you to know they made plenty of coffee for the rest of us, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We didn't get the rain that was in the forecast last night, so it's a good thing I already watered the garden. On the other hand, it's supposed to be a little cooler for the rest of the week, so we'll take that. BDH and Little Buddha camp out in front of the fans when it's hot out. It keeps them comfortable, but it means I have to yell for them to hear me, so maybe I'll get a chance to rest my voice for a bit. In the meantime, the guys made... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I gave the garden a good long watering yesterday, and it all looks terrific right now, which is always nice way to start the day. The birds are chirping a lot at the moment. I asked BDH and Little Buddha what they're talking about. BDH thinks they're making plans for the day, and Little Buddha thinks they're talking about whether or not it's going to rain at some point. Don't worry though, the guys still made coffee. There's a fresh pot on the counter, so help yourself... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? No complaints here. I had a dream last night that Robert Downey Jr. died. I saw the headline on my phone that he suffered a fatal heart attack, so what's the first thing I do when I wake up this morning? Check my phone, of course. I see that the actor is still with us, so the rest of the day should be smooth sailing from here. It's also supposed to warm up a bit again, but not as severely as last week, so we should be able to cross off most of... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How's your weekend going so far? Things got off to a rocky start on this end when I tweaked my elbow at the gym Saturday morning. All it took was one brief careless move with a barbell. I was a little tentative about moving my arm for the rest of the day, but it seems to have settled down now. Besides that, things are good. The flowers are starting to come out full force in the garden, and it's a great mix of colors in every direction. On top of... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. Sorry we missed you yesterday. Life forced a schedule change, and by the time we had a chance to sit down, BDH and Little Buddha were worried that the computer might melt, so we decided to just focus on trying to stay cool. Did you have a good 4th? Ours was solid, apart from the heat, of course. Now, the guys are bird-watching and looking for hints about when this rain will arrive. It's supposed to knock out the heat wave, so that calls for a celebration, and any decent... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! On behalf of the Clearing out the Clutter crew, we'd like to wish you all a happy July 4th! It's probably going to be a low-key affair here, as our main focus will be continuing to hide from the heat. However, we'll be in the garden as soon as the sun starts setting. We gave everything a good soaking yesterday, and there are already new colors all over the place! So, whatever you do today, have fun and be safe, particularly if you're going to play with fireworks. I asked BDH and Little Buddha if they... Read more →


Many Van Halen fans were hoping that the band might release some new music, or maybe even play some shows, in 2018 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their legendary debut album. Unfortunately, Eddie Van Halen's only priority seems to be selling some new guitars, while Alex Van Halen and David Lee Roth are off doing who knows what. Michael Anthony is still having fun with Sammy Hagar, and we're not holding our breath waiting for him to come back to the the group. However, it's now being reported that the band's current bassist, Wolfgang Van Halen, has completed work... Read more →
