We were roaming through the Internet and stumbled across Chris Cornell's final music video, which was released on Tuesday. It's for a song called, "The Promise," and Cornell originally wrote this tune for the 2016 movie by the same name about the Armenian genocide. Chris Cornell delivers a moving final message. (pic via There was an earlier video for this song that highlighted the movie. This version has a larger vision. Cornell wanted it released on June 20, which was this year's annual World Refugee Day." Observed by the UN Refugee Agency, the day is designed to, "commemorate the... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Question - is there a job with a lower expected accuracy rate than weathermen? For at least 24 hours, the forecasts indicated that yesterday would be non-stop rain from about Noon until sometime early this morning. There were repeated warnings on the radio about "the storm." I ran around in the morning trying to get all of my errands done before the downpours hit, and then the start time moved from Noon to 4:30....there was some rain for about 20 minutes...and then nothing again until somewhere around 8:00, I think...and that...

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Sounds like it's going to be a cooler Friday, which is fine with us. BDH, Little Buddha, and I are at our best when it's somewhere in the 70's or so, so we'll take this, and the Clutter Tree and garden would be good with some rain, so today's forecast is a win for everyone here. Of course, we've also got coffee, so really, what more could anyone ask for? There's a fresh pot ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? We're a little bit down at HQ at the moment. As expected, they cut the Clutter Tree back on the other side this week. BDH, Little Buddha, and I just noticed that one of the branches that's gone now is the one we used to watch birds hang out on while we sat here with all of you. That's a bit of a bummer. On the other hand, I "think" they're done cutting now, so if that's that's correct, while the tree is smaller, it's still handsome, and it can still be seen... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Things are good here at the moment. I just noticed that five new flowers popped in the garden overnight, and that's always a great way to start the day! I also realized yesterday that I should probably move into my basement during the summer since it's about 20 degrees cooler down there. Who wants to help me turn the place into a man cave? Of course, BDH and Little Buddha will also need to have their stuff down there, but I'm sure we can work out the space issues. Speaking of our dynamic... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I think we're going to need to buy some more fans here. Yesterday got off to a productive start, and then it fizzled out as I melted into a big puddle...but then it rebounded in the afternoon once there was some shade in the garden. I'm guessing that's probably how today is going to work out as well. Speaking of the garden, the flowers are slowly starting to appear! I suspect we're a little late getting going because of the cold spring, but business is about to pick up. Now, the coffee is... 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, and a happy Friday to you all! Good for us for making it through another week! Any big plans for the weekend? I've definitely got some gardening time on the schedule, but other than that, nothing too crazy. BDH and Little Buddha inform me that they will be bird-watching on both days, and no kidding, as soon as they said that, a bird just showed up in the Clutter Tree. The dynamic duo is going to go check out our new visitor now, but don't worry, they already made you some coffee. They're very thoughtful like... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We had a bit of a jolt here yesterday when we discovered that the Clutter Tree has been cut back more than we expected because of the ongoing building renovations. The branches used to wrap around eight out of nine windows, and now it's six out of nine. They're only working on one side of the building right now, so it's possible that there are further cuts to come. None of us were happy to see that, but as I reminded BDH and Little Buddha, the choices were cuts or removal, so even... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I'm sorry it's so cold in here. I just couldn't bring myself to turn the heat back on. It's June for Pete's sake. It feels like October at the moment, but that will pass soon. It's finally stopped raining, and I believe sun is in the forecast for the next few days, so for now, we wear a few extra layers to stay warm. Well, we wear layers and drink coffee. Never forget the coffee. Fortunately, BDH and Little Buddha are on top of it as always. There's a fresh pot ready to... Read more →
