Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! What's on the schedule for this weekend? I've got a few errands to take care of, but I'm mostly looking forward to some garden time and maybe a bike ride. Oh, and Good Omens is finally out on Amazon Prime Video, so we'll have to get started on that. BDH and Little Buddha can't wait to see David Tennant and Michael Sheen as a devil and angel who are out to stop the apocalypse. They're particularly excited that there's a dog in the story. However, let's check out today's... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Been a busy day here so far. It started with another doctor's appointment this morning. The good news is that everything seems to be fine. It was just a frustrating experience, as the doctor kept asking questions that made it clear she wasn't listening to what I was telling her. I'm no medical professional, but it feels like visits go smoother when the medical professional understands why they're happening in the first place. Anyway, our internet went out after that, but our crack IT squad (i.e. BDH and Little Buddha) worked hard to... Read more →


Anthony Bourdain was a hero to many people around the globe. The renowned chef/author/TV journalist spent years highlighting the beauty of the world and our commonalities, through the vehicle of food, and there was no one else like him. That's why it was so devastating when the news came out about his death by suicide in June 2018. His fans felt like they'd lost an advocate, a travel guide, perhaps a motivational coach, and a friend who often appeared on TV from some fascinating location trying a food many of us had never heard of before. His loss still stings... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I'm a little beat up at the moment. The Red Sox ended up playing last night, but I didn't really dress properly to deal with the wind or rain, so there might have been some involuntary shivering for the second half of the game. Oh, and there was also a rain delay which led to me being up well past my usual bedtime. It takes a lot of rest to keep this machine moving, friends. However, the company was great, and we picked up some commemorative 2013... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? We're dragging here a bit right now. Our crew stayed up for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals, and it's hard to fall asleep right after all of that excitement! It's partly sunny out at the moment, but it's supposed to rain for most of the day today. That's great for the garden, but not so much for tonight's Red Sox game. If the forecast is accurate, I hope it rains hard enough for the Sox to announce a postponement early, so I'm not wondering about... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? We've been running around a bit during the long weekend, but today should be pretty quiet, except for a bike ride and some garden time later. BDH and Little Buddha found the next book they want to read, but it comes out tomorrow, so I'll have to find something to keep them busy today. Oh hey, look at that- speaking of our dynamic duo, they just brought in a fresh pot of coffee. Thanks, guys! Grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out... Read more →


David Tennant marked the completion of his first podcast season with one final release. David Tennant Does a Podcast With...Everyone is a 40-minute collection of previously unheard outtakes from his conversations with different guests this year. That list includes Olivia Colman, Michael Sheen, James Corden, Catherine Tate, Jon Hamm, Gordon Brown, Samantha Bee, and Whoopi Goldberg. It's a quick bit of fun, as well as a sort of a "greatest hits" type episode which makes for a good series introduction for any Tennant fans who haven't heard the show before now. We admit that the former Doctor Who and Broadchurch... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! The sun is shining for the moment, and the birds are chirping like crazy. BDH and Little Buddha think they're talking about how happy they are not to have to deal with Memorial Day weekend traffic. I read yesterday that driving could take as much as three times longer than usual this weekend. That made me cry a little bit, but hopefully we can avoid that. Oh, and for those of you who were asking, yesterday's doctor's appointment went fine, thank you. Need to have a follow-up next week,... Read more →


If you need a quick break from the raging dumpster fire that is the country these days, the Lonely Island guys have just the thing for you. No idea what inspired this, but they've released a new Netflix special called, "The Unauthorized Bash Brothers Experience." The premise is simple: What would it look and sound like if the infamous "Bash Brothers," also known as Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire, released a rap album in 1988? The answer is a messed up, pretentious, and tremendous 30 minutes that you'll love. Andy Samberg is Canseco, and Akiva Schaffer is McGwire. The two... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Everyone here is fine at the moment. BDH and Little Buddha have been listening to the birds chirping ever since they woke up this morning. They think the birds are making weekend plans, but they're not sure. Other than that, there's not too much going on at the moment. I've got a doctor's appointment this afternoon, which I'm actually looking forward to (I think) because I've put it off for too long. I might get caught in some rain afterwards, but that's a fair trade-off to finally... Read more →
