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 →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, make yourself comfortable. What's on your schedule for today? Nothing too crazy here, except there's a repair guy coming to take care of a couple of things, so that's good. My internal clock is adjusting again, as the sunrise keeps happening earlier and earlier. Younger me would not know what to say if I told him he's now more of a morning person (at least during spring/summer.) Of course, no matter what time I get up, the day starts the same way - with coffee. There's a fresh pot ready to go, so... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? How was your weekend? It was pretty good on this end. I had some quality time in the garden and also had a chance to go for a bike ride, so no complaints. There's a pretty solid rain falling here at the moment, which I think is supposed to last all day. That's fine, the plants could use it. Other than that, there's not much else to report. Oh, we have coffee, can't forget that. There's a fresh pot ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear... 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? I'm sorry it's been a little while since we've had a chance to catch up. I've been in a bit of a funk the last few days, and reading about Donald Trump's latest awful comments/actions didn't seem like it was going to help. BDH and Little Buddha think that sitting down to hang out with all of you might be just what the doctor ordered, so I said we'd give it a shot. I do have to mention that the garden is coming together beautifully again. The tulips are starting to show, and... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha woke up earlier than usual this morning, because they're so excited to hang out with you today. In case you haven't heard, they're rather big fans of yours. They've got a fresh pot of coffee ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter. The good news is that things seem to be coming together for Rick Porcello. He had another positive outing last night, giving up five hits and two earned runs, while striking out nine, over 6 2/3...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? As expected, last night's Red Sox game was rained out. I never "like" to say that, but April games can be a bit of an endurance contest more than an entertainment experience. However, there's a July game against the Yankees to look forward to, so that's fine. In the meantime, we've got plenty of coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday Clutter. The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees will hopefully be able to play their first game... Read more →
