Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Are you doing anything special for Halloween tonight? The big goal here is to try to hand out more than 75% of the candy I bought, instead of gorging on it myself. Anyway, I'm sorry we couldn't hang out this past weekend. I had some VIP guests at the Northern Estate, then it was off to Dad Clutter's for the Patriots game, and next thing I know, it's Monday. I get so antsy when we don't chat, but it's all good now, because you're here! This calls for coffee. Help yourself to a... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Not feeling 100% well on this end at the moment, though I think it's mostly a result of some bad sleep. However, I've got a meeting later today, and there are some VIP guests coming to the Northern Estate tomorrow, so I need to shake this off now. BDH and Little Buddha suggest that I try some of the extra strong coffee they prepared this morning. How can I say no to that? They made enough for all of you too, so help yourselves to a nice...

Hey there, How are you? Day going okay so far? I was just crossing off a few items on my to-do list while waiting for this afternoon's rain to arrive. I wonder if that's why the birds were squawking so loudly earlier this morning? Maybe they wanted to get out of town before the weather hit. Anyway, I'm happy to take a break for a bit. Can I get you anything to eat or drink? We've got some crackers, an apple...I could make you a turkey melt. As for beverages, we've got more coffee (of course) and...water. Hmm, not too...

Hi everyone Welcome back! How are you? Everything is fine on this end. The Clutter Tree has lost a fair amount of its leaves . It's still the best-looking tree around, but it's remarkable how much the view around here changes at this point in the year. I told BDH and Little Buddha to remember that people can see them more easily through the windows now, so they need to be on their best behavior. They both just smiled at me, but I'm not sure if they understood what I said. Speaking of the dynamic duo, they tell me that... Read more →

Hi everyone Welcome back! How are you? You know, I went years without remembering my dreams. I'm sure I had them, but I had zero recollection of any of them, until I read Neil Gaiman's Sandman collection earlier this year. Now I'm repeatedly in this situation where I have the dream and wake up just a little bit with a sense that I should share some of them with you. However, by the time I'm fully awake, they're completely gone again, but I know they were there. It's all very confusing. You know what's not confusing? That's right, coffee. We've... Read more →

I can't tell a lie...or can I?

When I was a kid, one of my favorite Saturday Night Live characters was Jon Lovitz as pathological liar Tommy Flanagan. There was just something about Flanagan's utter inability to tell the truth, as well as his catchphrase, "Yeah, that's the ticket," that always made me laugh. I also once worked for a person who couldn't complete an honest sentence if his/her life depended on it. Once I realized that was the case, it became an entertaining game to see how outlandish a comment I could get this individual to make. I don't know why, but I find uncontrollable dishonesty...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, make yourself comfortable. What's new? Nothing much to report on this end at the moment. I can however tell you that the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Tuesday Clutter. Donald Trump continues to stay busy trying to defend himself against the continual steam of allegations of sexual misconduct. This time, Trump was arguing that he couldn't have been inappropriate with adult film actress Jessica Drake because everyone knows you can't be in appropriate with a porn star, right? One wonders if he... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Sorry we're a little late today. The Internet connection around here becomes increasingly temperamental as the weather gets colder, and I suspect this wind isn't helping either. Anyway, how was your weekend? Things are going well on this end. I've taken care of the bulk of the leaves that were in the back yard, which is good. The issue now is getting them out of the flower beds, because the ground hasn't fully frozen yet, so that may still take a while. That's okay though, because there's still a little bit of time...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I was just looking out the window at all of the leaves that need raking. The bad news is that the yard is covered again. The good news is that the tree seems to be just about done at this point, so this should be the final round. However, we've got headlines to sort through first. The coffee's ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Sunday Clutter. The New England Patriots take on the Pittsburgh Steelers later this afternoon. Pittsburgh...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! I was just talking to BDH and Little Buddha about what time you might get here, and here you are! The coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Saturday Clutter. We noticed right as we were signing off yesterday that our Internet connection was suddenly a little spotty. Some sites (like Clutter) were working fine, but we couldn't access Twitter or the Boston Globe. That sort of thing happens every now and again around here, so we didn't think much of it, but it turns out that... Read more →
