July 2019

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. I have to admit, I was not paying close enough attention when BDH and Little Buddha told me how warm and muggy it was going to be yesterday. I went for a bike ride after we were done here and then walked around town for a while to take care of some errands. Once I got back to the office, it was clear there was no way I was going outside again for about another six hours. Oof, that was ugly. The guys say today should be a touch cooler,... Read more →


Quentin Tarantino is back with his latest film, Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood, which is a love letter to the end of the glory days of the film industry in 1969. However, it's a tribute with a dark side. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Rick Dalton, a television actor entering the back half of his career, and Brad Pitt as Cliff Booth, Rick's stuntman and gopher. Tarantino is in fine form as he pays homage to the old movies and television shows he loves, while bringing an air of danger to the story in the form of Charles Manson... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. BDH and Little Buddha were just telling me about today's weather forecast. We had a fun time staying out of the heat at the movies yesterday (review coming soon), and maybe we should do it again this afternoon. There are a couple of errands that need to be done first though...Well, we'll figure that out later. The guys made a fresh pot of coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Tuesday Clutter. (As always, if you'd like to support our coffee budget, please consider...

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Monday to you all. BDH, Little Buddha, and I were just discussing how we still lost a little sleep last night because of the Boston Red Sox - New York Yankees game. However, at least they started it at 7:00 this time, so we're not complete zombies around here this morning. We were also talking about how the ESPN baseball announcing crew throws out a lot of useless words into each broadcast, but that's a conversation for another day. The guys tell me it's going to be pretty warm again today, so they're... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How's your weekend going so far? No complaints on this end. I've got a couple of errands to do today, and then I should be able to get in some garden time before tonight's Red Sox - Yankees game. That's about all I ask for out of a Sunday in July. Speaking of the garden, the flowers are pretty close to being in full bloom, and everything looks terrific. It feels like the schedule was off by about a month this year, so hopefully that means I have at least... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. Can we start slowing down the summer just a bit? I know, it's still July for a few more days, but it seems like things are picking up speed, and I'm in no rush to get to fall and winter. BDH and Little Buddha said they'd be happy to look into that for me, which was nice of them. They also said that they just made a fresh pot of coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Clutter. (As always, if... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were just checking the weather forecast to make sure we don't have any more insane heat waves on the horizon anytime soon. Looks like we're in the clear at the moment. The guys also say the coffee is ready, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter. (As always, if you'd like to support our coffee budget, please consider using the Clutter Amazon page for your shopping needs.) Robert Mueller testified before Congress yesterday, and he made...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Things are going well here at the moment. I had the chance to meet legendary baseball pitcher Luis Tiant at a book signing event for his new autobiography last night. That was fun. He was funny while he was talking to the crowd, and then he did a good job of being nice to everyone who got their books signed while recognizing that he had to keep the line moving, or else we all would have been there for six hours. Looks like BDH and Little Buddha have something to read while I... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. We're just trying to work through some IT issues here this morning. Not sure if it's because of the rain or what, but our staff is on the case, so it should all be resolved soon. Speaking of the rain, I guess I won't have to water the garden this week. The plants are getting a solid soaking, which is terrific. We're also enjoying the fact that it's about 30 degrees cooler here than it was around 36 hours ago. Hold on...BDH and Little Buddha think they've fixed the computer... Read more →


The first trailer for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is finally here. Tom Hanks stars as Fred Rogers, with Matthew Rhys playing journalist Tom Junod. The short version of the plot is that Junod is a cynical man who who has been assigned to write a profile of everyone's favorite neighbor, and he probably learns how to be a happier person, thanks to Mr. Rogers. The movie will be released on November 22, 2019, so it's a perfect way to start off the holiday season this year. Casting Hanks as Mr. Rogers was a solid choice, as they both... Read more →
