Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I know, it's a little chilly in here at the moment, but it should warm up a bit pretty soon. It's like it's mid-October or something. BDH and Little Buddha say the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Tuesday Clutter. The Boston Celtics kick off the 2017-2018 NBA season on the road against the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight. We can't wait to see how these two revamped line-ups do against each other, and especially what kind of reception Kyrie Irving gets after forcing his... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We've been having some crazy wind around here for about 12 hours now. I can't remember the last time I heard it howl like that for so long. Every time I woke up, it sounded like we were in the opening scene of a Stephen King Halloween novel. There's also the fact that I'm now getting up in the morning well before the sun rises. I can already feel my internal body clock being thrown off. Thanks, fall! Oh well. Thankfully, BDH and Little Buddha are here to help all of us power... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How's your weekend going so far? I'm pretty much keeping up with raking the leaves so far, at least as much as I can right now. I don't want to rake the garden beds yet, because the ground still hasn't frozen over. Besides, it was the usual errands yesterday, and of course, there's the Patriots - Jets game this afternoon. However, before that happens, we've got headlines to look through. I'm being informed that the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Sunday Clutter. As we mentioned,... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Any big plans for the weekend? Nothing too crazy on this end besides another round of cutting back the garden and raking leaves. We're a crazy crew, I tell you. Speaking of the team, BDH and Little Buddha tell me that the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Saturday Clutter. The Red Sox season is over, but we're not lacking for off-season discussions. Chad Finn addresses a recurring question about whether or not the Sox should trade... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Thursday to you all! I had some weird sleep last night, man. Weird. I fell asleep without much issue at first but then woke up a few hours later as if all I needed was an extended nap. I also know I heard the sounds of a loudspeaker down the road in the middle of the night, but I couldn't hear what they were saying. At least I'm pretty sure I heard it. The evening's dreams were also odd, but of course, now I can't remember what they were. It was just a... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How's things? Between the Red Sox season being over, gardening season in its final stages (although there are still a few Black-eyed-Susan's hanging around), and Doctor Who not returning until the Christmas Special, there's part of me that feels like 2017 is just about over. However, BDH and Little Buddha did some research, and they claim that there's still about 2 1/2 months left in the year, so we should probably make good use of that time. As usual, I have no counter-argument with these two. The dynamic duo made you a fresh pot of coffee,... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How's your week going so far? We're all a little disappointed about the Red Sox (more on that in a minute), but other than that, things are pretty good. The leaves have started falling in the garden, so there's some raking on the to-do list, but there are also still a handful of flowers hanging out, which is nice. It's probably a bad sign that it's still so warm this far into October, but....I just can't say we mind it that much at the moment. Winter is (truly) coming, so... Read more →


I wrote in this space on Friday that I was going to Sunday's Boston Red Sox - Houston Astros game, but I didn't really care who won. The point was that taking my dad to his first playoff game for his birthday meant much more to me than the final score, and I stand by that. But what a game! I was slightly worried as we walked into Fenway Park Sunday afternoon that the day was not going to leave my dad with many positive memories. It's not just that the Red Sox lost the first two games of the... Read more →


I have tickets to Sunday's game between the Boston Red Sox and the Houston Astros, and I can't wait to go. It's not because I'm convinced that the Sox will finally show up in the ALDS, although anything is possible in baseball. In fact, in some ways, I don't really care who wins on Sunday. For me, the vast majority of the excitement about tomorrow comes from the fact that I'm going with my dad. My parents took me to my first Red Sox game in 1982. It was against the Milwaukee Brewers, and 35 years later, I still remember... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. Any big plans for the weekend? I'm taking Dad Clutter to Game 3 of the ALDS for his birthday on Sunday, so that should be fun. Other than that, nothing too crazy going on here. BDH and Little Buddha asked me to tell you that the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter. The Boston Red Sox lost 8-2 to the Houston Astros in Game 1 of the ALDS yesterday. Things got off to a terrible start in the... Read more →
