Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I got stung by a bee in the garden yesterday. First time that's happened in ages. My initial reaction was that it seemed pretty rude, considering how much work I put into being a good host for him and his friends every summer. Then I realized it was probably my fault. He was in a pile of weeds I had forgotten about earlier, and I probably startled him when I picked up the pile. In other news, it's pretty gloomy outside here at the moment. The weather forecast originally called for rain for... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Did you have a good weekend? No complaints here. It's pretty dark outside right now, and it's supposed to rain for a good part of the day. Hopefully that's what's going to happen, because the garden could use a good soaking. For now, we've got headlines to sort through and coffee to enjoy. Help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Monday Clutter. The Boston Red Sox lost 3-2 to the Anaheim Angels yesterday. Rick Porcello was solid, giving up the three runs... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? It sounds like we're going to get some rain later today. That's good, the Clutter Tree could probably use it. Our building's renovation project is moving at snail's pace, but the scaffolding around the tree should finally be coming down soon. It may be another year before these guys finish this job, but at least BDH, Little Buddha and I will get to enjoy an unobstructed view of the tree again, which is all we've wanted for about five weeks now. Well, we've wanted thtt and coffee, of course. Speaking of which, there's... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I'm guessing that most of you took today off because of tomorrow's holiday, yes? (My condolences to those of you who are stuck at work right now.) What's new? Not too much to report here at the moment. The sun is shining, and the birds are chirping, so what more could we ask for, really? Wait, I know. Coffee! We've got that too. There's a fresh pot waiting for you, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Monday Clutter. The Boston Red Sox crushed the Toronto Blue... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, make yourself comfortable. How's everything going? No complaints on this end. We've got a number of fun projects coming up here over the next few weeks, so BDH and Little Buddha are helping me work out a schedule for everything. Don't worry, though. They also made some coffee! There's a fresh pot ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter. The Boston Red Sox lost 4-1 to the Minnesota Twins last night. Rick Porcello fell to 4-10 on the season, as he gave... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I spent most of the day yesterday waiting for some steady rain to fall, but we just got a couple of light showers instead. That wasn't enough for the garden, so I brought out the hose around 6:00 and started to give the plants a serious watering. Everything was fine, until with about five minutes of watering left, I started to realize how dark it was suddenly getting. With about two minutes left, I looked up and saw lightning in the distance, with the thunder not that far behind. I quickly finished up... 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 2:00...to 4:00...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! 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 →


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! How are you? How's your week going so far? The repairman did his job quickly and smoothly yesterday, so I'm happy that went well. I was just looking at the forecast, and apparently we have more rain coming on Friday. That's fine, as far as the garden and Clutter Tree are concerned, but I'm supposed to be going to a Red Sox game that night. My last game was rained out, and I've never had that happen twice in a row before, so hopefully this won't be a first. Anyway, that's the latest from here. We've... Read more →
