Hi everyone, Welcome back! Happy Friday to you all. It sounds like this is going to a messy day weather-wise, although nothing's happening at the moment, and BDH and Little Buddha are listening to the birds chirping. They also made all of you some coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter. We can't wait to have the Boston Red Sox back on our TV on a regular basis again, and Opening Day is now just three days away! There are a growing number of questions about this team, including, will the Sox... Read more →

Dear Donald Trump, I'm sure you've seen the news today that your approval rating is down to 35%. This can't be what you wanted, sir. It's clear you've spent your life craving love and attention. I know, you are still a little surprised you won the election. The campaign was just supposed to prove Barack Obama wrong when he made fun of you at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner. Who did that jerk think he was? You're no joke. You deserve to be taken seriously! You couldn't prove him wrong by running a campaign from the left, so you... Read more →

Welcome back, everyone! How are you? Things are generally fine on this end at the moment, I guess. I had two multi-part dreams last night, which was a little unusual. Does that ever happen to you? I woke up twice during the first one, and once during the second one. Odd. I was just looking at this weekend's weather forecast, and it's hard not to start swearing right now. They're currently talking about 5-10" of snow in New Hampshire. Come on, I just want to play in the garden. Okay, so maybe I'm a little cranky. BDH and Little Buddha... Read more →

Update: According to the Boston Comic Con website, Matt Smith will only be appearing on Saturday, August 12. Autographs are $105 and photo ops are $100. Add in a $50 one-day general admission pass, and we're looking at roughly $250 here. On the one hand, that seems high, but on the other hand, we had already convinced ourselves this was going to cost $500, so...score! We were quietly scrolling through Twitter on Tuesday afternoon, waiting for the next round of rain to arrive and wondering when the damp chill would finally dissipate. It was a pretty mindless trip through social... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? The good news is that it finally stopped raining here, and now about 60 % of the back yard is visible. It's still going to be a while before the snow along the side of the driveway melts, but it's starting to feel like garden time is coming. Of course, there's the matter of the bad weather forecast for Friday and Saturday, but I'm in pure denial mode about that. Anyway, there's plenty of news to cover today, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday Clutter.... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Tuesday to you all. I know, it's looking like another grey chilly day, and there's more rain in the forecast for the afternoon, but the temperatures are slowly rising, and the snow is receding, so we are still moving in the right direction. Plus, the birds are chirping, and that's always a treat. You know what else is a treat? Coffee, and lots of it. We've got a fresh pot ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium (or maybe even a large) DD, and let's clear out some Tuesday Clutter.... Read more →

Last week's trip to spring training threw off my laundry schedule, so roughly 75% of all of the clothes I own were in the laundry bag when I came back to the Northern Estate. That would have been fine, except that not paying attention, I pretty much tried to put them into the washing machine all at once. There are times that I'm just "not bright." I didn't realize my mistake until it came time to move the clothes into the dryer. That was when I discovered that while the water had drained, there was apparently no spin cycle, so...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Looks like this week is off to a rainy start. That's okay, it should help reduce what I hope are the last snow piles for a long while. I'm getting antsy to play in the garden, so let's get the snow out of here, let the ground finish thawing, and then let the fun begin! Until then, we've got plenty of headlines to sort through here. There's a fresh pot of coffee ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How's your weekend going? It's still a little chilly out there at the moment, but the 10-day weather forecast calls for consistent highs in the 40's and 50's, so perhaps spring is finally ready to settle in? Of course, now that I say that, we'll have a blizzard tomorrow. Oh well. In any case, we've got a fresh pot of coffee ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Sunday Clutter. It's good to hear that David Price has started throwing a baseball again. However, will Red Sox... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Come on in, have a seat. It's looking pretty grey out there, but at least it's not stopping the birds from chirping away! I think it's supposed to rain for most of the day, but that's fine. The Clutter Tree could use some water. The buds are just starting to show on the branches, which makes me smile. You know what else makes me smile? Coffee. BDH and Little Buddha just made a fresh pot, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Saturday Clutter! The Boston Red...
