July 2018

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were up early this morning because they were so excited to see you today. They just finished making the coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Tuesday Clutter. You have to think Donald Trump knows that following through on his latest threat to shutdown the government for his beloved wall would be an incredible gift for Democrats before the midterm elections. The expectation here is that he'll ramble on about it for a few more days/weeks to make sure his base is... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. We were just going over this week's schedule and checking the weather forecast. How is it already the end of July? Don't care for that. Don't care for that at all. Anyway, now that you're here, let's see what's going on in today's headlines. BDH and Little Buddha made some coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Monday Clutter. Donald Trump had a meeting with the publisher of the New York Times, and wouldn't you know it, the two of them... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How's your weekend going? It got off to a great start on this end when Dad Clutter and I went to Friday's Red Sox game. The Sox won in the 10th inning, thanks to Mookie Betts hitting his first-ever walk-off home run, so that was exciting. Yours truly made it on TV for a second at one point during the game, and that made BDH and Little Buddha happy to no end. Also, the garden got a solid watering thanks to yesterday's rain, but the sun is shining now, so... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Any big plans for the weekend? It should be business as usual on this end, by which we mean hanging out in the garden as much as possible, in addition to taking care of a few errands. BDH and Little Buddha will be here in a second, they're just turning on the fans. We used to have A/C at Clutter Headquarters, but at some point we ended up with too many plants to put a unit in the window, so we've got a network of fans instead. Oh, here... Read more →


It's been far too long since we had the opportunity to enjoy Clutter favorite David Tennant's work around here. Sure, there are some Doctor Who episodes on the DVR, but Broadchurch ended a year ago, and we're pretty sure that's not coming back, since showrunner Chris Chibnall and Jodie Whittaker are off setting the stage for the debut of the 13th Doctor. His run on Jessica Jones also feels like ages ago. What are we to do? Fortunately, it's just been announced that David Tennant and Jennifer Garner's new series, Camping, will be debuting on October 14, and we're already... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We've got a rainy start to the day here, which is fine. BDH and Little Buddha say the Clutter Tree always loves more water, and I can't disagree with that. In addition to learning bird calls, I think these two are becoming tree whisperers, and I couldn't be more proud. They also made coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter. Donald Trump is owned by Russia, and the Republican response is to file articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The occupant... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Humid enough for you out there? Yikes, you can feel the dampness everywhere. Come sit next to the fan, we'll slide over for you. There's a lot of rain in the forecast for the next 10 days. It's a good thing I got BDH and Little Buddha new raincoats and umbrellas this year. The thunderstorms are supposed to start early this afternoon, so I guess we better get moving so I can try to get some of today's errands done without being drenched. The guys made coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and... Read more →


Sumner Redstone has been a media titan for decades. The son of a movie chain owner from Boston, Redstone expanded the reach of that business until it was an empire that included CBS and Viacom (which also meant companies like Paramount Studios and MTV, among others.) He made a lot of aggressive decisions and angered many people along the way (including numerous relatives who ended up suing him.) His seemingly biggest ally/foe is none other than his daughter Shari Redstone, who has now replaced him at the top of the mountain, although her father's presence is still felt. The Redstone...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I definitely don't need to water the garden this week, because everything got a good soaking yesterday. However, I still managed to sneak in a bike ride and also hang out with the plants in the afternoon/evening, so it was a win-win. The birds are chirping up a storm here at the moment, and our guess is they're arguing about whether or not it's really going to rain again this afternoon. While they sort that out, let's see what's going on in the world. BDH and Little Buddha made some coffee, so help... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Sorry to have missed you on Sunday - we were helping Dad Clutter park cars for the big NASCAR race in New Hampshire. The rain seemed to keep a good number of people away, but we still had fun. It's just too bad there's only one race a year now. Speaking of the rain, it's falling right now, and it sounds like that's the forecast for a good part of the week. Oh well, it's good for the garden and the Clutter Tree, so that's fine. BDH...
