David Tennant marked the completion of his first podcast season with one final release. David Tennant Does a Podcast With...Everyone is a 40-minute collection of previously unheard outtakes from his conversations with different guests this year. That list includes Olivia Colman, Michael Sheen, James Corden, Catherine Tate, Jon Hamm, Gordon Brown, Samantha Bee, and Whoopi Goldberg. It's a quick bit of fun, as well as a sort of a "greatest hits" type episode which makes for a good series introduction for any Tennant fans who haven't heard the show before now. We admit that the former Doctor Who and Broadchurch... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! The sun is shining for the moment, and the birds are chirping like crazy. BDH and Little Buddha think they're talking about how happy they are not to have to deal with Memorial Day weekend traffic. I read yesterday that driving could take as much as three times longer than usual this weekend. That made me cry a little bit, but hopefully we can avoid that. Oh, and for those of you who were asking, yesterday's doctor's appointment went fine, thank you. Need to have a follow-up next week,... Read more →


If you need a quick break from the raging dumpster fire that is the country these days, the Lonely Island guys have just the thing for you. No idea what inspired this, but they've released a new Netflix special called, "The Unauthorized Bash Brothers Experience." The premise is simple: What would it look and sound like if the infamous "Bash Brothers," also known as Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire, released a rap album in 1988? The answer is a messed up, pretentious, and tremendous 30 minutes that you'll love. Andy Samberg is Canseco, and Akiva Schaffer is McGwire. The two... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Everyone here is fine at the moment. BDH and Little Buddha have been listening to the birds chirping ever since they woke up this morning. They think the birds are making weekend plans, but they're not sure. Other than that, there's not too much going on at the moment. I've got a doctor's appointment this afternoon, which I'm actually looking forward to (I think) because I've put it off for too long. I might get caught in some rain afterwards, but that's a fair trade-off to finally... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, make yourself comfortable. How are you? It's been a pretty productive week so far on this end, which is good. We're glad that the temperatures are finally starting to settle into a more normal range, seeing as how it's late May and all. Don't love the number the wind did on my tulips yesterday, though. Don't care for that at all. I wish there was some way I could protect them in that situation. Anyway, let's see what's going on in the world. BDH and Little Buddha just made a fresh pot of...

The wrestling world lost yet another alum when former WWE star Ashley Massaro died last week at the age of 39. The circumstances behind her death were not publicly revealed at the time, but the fact that the police immediately labeled it, "non-criminal" spoke volumes. Now it's being reported that Massaro died from suicide by hanging. Our thoughts go out to her family and friends. Massaro had a rocky relationship with her former employer. She was part of a class action concussion-related lawsuit against the WWE, saying that she suffered from depression as a result of the repeated blows she... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. Sorry we're running late today. I gave in to a bit of anxiety about getting an oil change and needed to take care of it first thing this morning. On the flip side, it's good to shake up the schedule every now and again. It's May 21, so it's probably safe to turn off the heat by this point, right? The sun is peeking through the clouds, but this wind is not being kind to my tulips. They go through so much work to get here and then a stiff... Read more →


Although it's been closed for 25 years, many people still have fond memories of seeing movies at the Concord Theatre. This classic style theater ran for sixty-one years on South Main Street, providing a mix of mainstream hits as well as smaller films. Theresa Cantin was the guiding force behind this longstanding community institution. With the renovated theater scheduled to re-open this year, this is a great time to look back at the building's past, as well as the history of the movies in Concord. That's just what Paul E. Brogan has done with his new book, The Concord Theatre.... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Monday to you all. I think it's going to be a somewhat quiet Monday here. I didn't sleep very well - there were odd dreams, and I woke up a few times, so that might be an issue. It looks like it already rained, but the forecast calls for thunderstorms for a good part of the day. Wonder if that means my contractor is going to bail on today's appointment. Hmm, well, at least BDH and Little Buddha have a new book to read. Before they do that, let's check out today's headlines.... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How's your weekend going so far? It's been good on this end. I went for a bike ride yesterday, and that was fun, even though I was going into a headwind the entire time. After that, it was an afternoon of garden time, as I continue to clean up from last week's compost application. The tulips are gorgeous, and hopefully they'll have some friends join them soon. It sounds like we might have some rain today, but at least the temperatures are finally moving in the right direction. We'll take... Read more →
