Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? It's a little drizzly outside at the moment, but that's okay. I don't think the plants object to a little more rain. Speaking of the plants, I had some solid garden time yesterday, and we're in pretty good shape at the moment. The next big thing is getting the compost, and I'm going to need a few weeks of stretching before that happens. Anyway, let's check out today's headlines. BDH and Little Buddha just brought in a fresh pot of coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium... Read more →


The wait is over: Avengers: Endgame has finally arrived! Thanos demands our silence when it comes to spoilers, so we're going to keep this discussion to general thoughts (with one quick note), and then maybe revisit it in a few weeks once the film is done dominating the world. It's been a year (in the real world) since have the population of the universe disappeared with one snap of the fingers, and our heroes are still trying to recover from their devastating loss. They've been joined by Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel since the last film. The only thing we'll say here... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Monday to you all! We hope you had a good weekend. I'm moving slowly at the moment after catching a late showing of Avengers: Endgame last night. (review coming soon) I figured I'd be able to avoid the crowds, but then it took a long time for my head to slow down enough to get to sleep after that. There's a lot on today's to-do list that needs to happen, so BDH and Little Buddha say they'll keep the coffee coming to make sure I don't fall asleep later this morning. Don't know... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Sorry it's a little chilly in here at the moment. It should warm up pretty soon. We certainly haven't been lacking for rain this month. That's fine, because this is the greenest our grass has looked in a while, and the plants aren't complaining. There's more rain in the forecast for later this week, but it should be dry enough now for me to get some garden time in today, and that's fantastic. However, let's see what's going on in the world first. BDH and Little Buddha... Read more →


Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson have been busy working together to save the universe, first in Captain Marvel, and then possibly in Avengers: Endgame. (That's not a spoiler - we're just guessing.) However, the two also teamed up in a 2017 movie called Unicorn Store, which recently came out on Netflix. It was directed by Larson, and she stars as "Kit," a creative and quirky woman trying to find her place in the adult world. Jackson stars as, "The Salesman" who works at the Unicorn Store. We'll give you three guesses what they sell there. We're first introduced via... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back. It's a gloomy Friday around here at the moment. It's grey and raining outside, and I'm down because I lost a plant last night. This little cactus had been with me since college, so that's 25+ years and 10+ homes. He (it was totally a he) was a terrific housemate, and I feel like I let him down by not realizing much earlier that he was in trouble. I take immense pride in how how much care I put into the 400 plants here, but I dropped the ball in this case. BDH and Little Buddha... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? The sun is shining, and the birds are chirping up a storm this morning. BDH and Little Buddha think they're making weekend plans. Works for me. The guys made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter. Donald Trump said yesterday his administration is "fighting all of the subpoenas" that Congress is issuing. Congress has every right to investigate the executive branch. It's a fundamental component of our government's system of checks and balances. Trump's blanket obstruction isn't rooted in a negotiating strategy or protecting some... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Things are okay here at the moment. Still stressed about some stuff, but I'm trying not to obsess over it. I've got a few minor aches and pains this morning, and I just realized it's probably from gardening on Monday. I have to remember to start stretching beforehand. Oh, BDH and Little Buddha are still looking for their next book, so any suggestions would be great. In the meantime, the guys made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday Clutter.... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. The day is off to a rainy start, but that's okay. It's good for the plants, and I think it's supposed to end later this morning anyway. Speaking of the plants, I got a couple of hours in the garden yesterday, which was terrific. In addition to the plants beginning to return, this is also the greenest the yard has looked in a while, so that's a bonus. Anyway, let's check out today's headlines. BDH and Little Buddha made some coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back. Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Feeling a little anxious at the moment, which is not how I'd like to start a new week, but here we are. I should be able to get in at least a little garden time, and that always helps. Also, BDH and Little Buddha said they'll do whatever it takes to improve my mood, so I'm pretty sure I'll be more settled soon. In any case, let's check out today's headlines. The guys say the coffee is ready, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's... Read more →
