Hi everyone, Welcome back! How's everything? It looks like we've got rain in the forecast for the next two days, which is a good thing. As much as I'm enjoying the unusually warm weather, and am in little hurry for it to leave, it's messed up the watering schedule for the garden. We usually would have stopped by now, but the ground hasn't frozen over yet, and the plants are still growing, so this rain is appreciated. Other than that, it's business as usual around here. The coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? We're all a little tired around here, thanks to last night's New England Patriots game, but somehow it's not as late of an evening when they win the game. However, we still need coffee, and BDH and Little Buddha have come through once again. They've got a fresh pot ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Monday Clutter. The New England Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons 23-7 in a rematch of Super Bowl LI last night. This was... Read more →

The story that follows may not be 100% "accurate." For reasons of both legal liability and creative freedom, a few of the details have been tweaked, but you get the point. This weekend's Head of the Charles Regatta is a moment of personal celebration. It's not that I care about rowing (although I took a class in it once and made the front page of the local paper my first time out on the water.) It's that this is the 20th anniversary of the day I got my tattoo. It's an event that will stay with me for a lifetime... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How's your weekend going? I'm still annoyed that I've lost a package into the great UPS void. Understanding that mistakes happen, UPS took this book back on Tuesday, but they haven't returned it to the sender or tried to deliver it to me again. They better not be reading my book. Oh well, hopefully that will get resolved next week. For now, there's a new round of raking that needs to happen, but first, let's sort through the headlines. BDH and Little Buddha just told me that the coffee's ready, so help yourself to a nice... Read more →

In case you didn't know, October is a big fan of Abbott and Costello's "Who's on First?" routine. It started with the great coffee adventure at the start of the month, and now it's time for Round 2. I've been waiting for the arrival of a new book for an upcoming Clutter review. I was out of town for a few days, but when I got back on Wednesday the 18th at around Noon, there was a note from UPS saying there was a package waiting for me at a local pickup point. I Googled the address to see where... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. Sorry to have missed you yesterday. I couldn't get my head into looking at the news, so BDH and Little Buddha suggest I work on a new book review (stay tuned for that next week), go get the car inspected (passed with flying colors), and take care of some other errands instead. As always, listening to them always serves me well. However, we all agree it's time to get back to work. We've got a fresh pot of coffee for you, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in have a seat. How's your week going? I'm still adjusting to how cold and dark it's getting in the morning. How many days until spring? This is just not my most favorite time of the year. However, regardless of the season, BDH and Little Buddha are always here to hang out and distract me from the weather, and you can't beat that. You also can't beat that they make great coffee. They've got a fresh pot ready for all of you, so help yourselves to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out... Read more →

Part 6 of the Lost Dimension story returns this week to find the 12th Doctor, Bill Potts, Nardole, Jenny, and a previous incarnation or two trying to figure out the source of the energy that's taken over UNIT and is spreading across the Earth. We were not big fans of Lost Dimensions (Part 5), but the newest issue immediately gets this adventure back on track. It's fun to watch #12 engage in a bit of trickery before forcing his way into #10's TARDIS. Oh yes, that's right, this story is a tag team affair that we've been dreaming about for... Read more →

The Slide

Here we go again. I can feel my mood deteriorating as quietly and smoothly as the sun falling down over the horizon. It's time for another trip down the slide. There's no point in fighting it, my sneakers have no traction. All I can do is pay attention to the trip. It's much calmer than it used to be. I don't like this ride, but I don't fear it anymore. I know well how it ends. I hit the bottom, and then much like the morning sun, I climb back up to the top. Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I know, it's a little chilly in here at the moment, but it should warm up a bit pretty soon. It's like it's mid-October or something. BDH and Little Buddha say the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Tuesday Clutter. The Boston Celtics kick off the 2017-2018 NBA season on the road against the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight. We can't wait to see how these two revamped line-ups do against each other, and especially what kind of reception Kyrie Irving gets after forcing his... Read more →
