August 2019

Let's get a little housekeeping out of the way first. We enjoyed Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. It had a solid amount of entertaining action scenes and special effects, and it was funnier than we were expecting. It also set the stage for the upcoming fight between humans and machines, and we were excited to see the next chapter. Terminator Salvation barely rings a bell, but the recollection is that it was was all too grey for us to stay focused, so we might have changed the channel at some point. Finally Terminator Genisys came along and changed the... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! In addition to Labor Day, this is moving weekend in Boston, so BDH and Little Buddha are already looking out the window to see who is coming and going from the neighborhood. There have been a handful of moving truck sightings, but the major craziness happens over the next two days. Navigating that circus is a rite of passage in Boston, and I'm so happy we aren't part of that zoo anymore. BDH wasn't here for any of our moving adventures. However, Little Buddha still remembers being packed up... Read more →


Don't know about you, but the new season of Doctor Who is starting to feel like it will never arrive. Even if we get a Christmas or New Year's special first, that's still months away. What's a fan to do? Fortunately, there's a new Doctor Who graphic novel to check out: Doctor Who The Thirteenth Doctor Volume 2 just hit the stands, so at least we can read about the Doctor's latest adventures with Graham, Yaz, and Rian. This collection picks up a few weeks after Volume 1, where the Doctor and fam helped rescue a pair of scientists. #13... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Did you get the rain we had here last night? I was starting to wonder if it was going to be yet another tease of a weather forecast, but that was legit. The garden got a good soaking, and now it looks like we have a nice Labor Day Weekend ahead of us. (Programming note: We expect to keep to our usual schedule over the next few days. We'll probably be gone on Saturday but should be here besides that.) BDH and Little Buddha just said the coffee is ready, so grab yourself... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were just looking at the weather forecast. It calls for rain this afternoon, so I'm trying to figure out today's schedule. I could take care of a couple of errands and get in a nice walk this morning. Hmm, we'll see. In any case, we're glad you're here. The guys just put the coffee on the counter, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Wednesday Clutter. (As always, if you'd like to support our coffee budget, please consider using the Clutter Amazon... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? BDH and Little Buddha checked out a new book from the library yesterday, so now they've got three in their reading pile, and that makes them happy. Of course, they're also thrilled to see you, so things are good here at the moment. The guys just said the coffee is ready, 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 using the Clutter Amazon page for your shopping needs.) Donald... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I promise (to try) not to obsess over this too much over the next few weeks, but doesn't it seem like the decreasing sunlight and dropping temperatures happened faster than usual this year? Maybe I'm just in denial that we're already in the final days of August. That's always possible. Anyway, BDH and Little Buddha picked up two new books yesterday, and they're excited to have something to read for the next few weeks, so that should keep us busy around here. In the meantime, let's check out today's headlines. The guys just... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How's your weekend been so far? Everything is fine on this end, except that it's getting darker when we wake up in the morning, as well as earlier in the evening. Don't care for that. Don't care for that at all. The good news is that a decent portion of the garden is still here, because everything is about a month off schedule this year, but pruning season is coming. Don't like that either. Oh, and I'm wearing a pullover this morning because it's a little on the chilly side.... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Is it just me, or did this week go by quickly? I was just telling BDH and Little Buddha that I had another one of those, "I don't have enough credits to graduate on time from college" dreams last night. The guys told me they double-checked, and I already graduated, so there is nothing to worry about. Those two are the best. They also want you to know that the coffee is ready. There's a fresh pot on the counter, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? The rain came earlier than expected yesterday, so I got caught in it when I went out to run an errand in the morning. That was an adventure. The rain was sporadic all day, but I think the garden got a decent soaking, so that's good. We were right on the border of a tornado warning for a little while in the afternoon, which was an unusual experience, but we're still standing. BDH and Little Buddha say today's forecast just looks like it will be cloudy. We... Read more →
