August 2019

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. Did you get the rain we had here last night? That was crazy. BDH and Little Buddha love watching and listening to storms, but they're also glad they sleep far away from the windows. Also, there's no getting around it - I had to turn the lights on earlier last night, and it's a little darker than it used to be at this point in the morning. Don't care for that. Don't care for that at all. The guys tell me to focus on the important things, like the fact... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. I was just talking to BDH and Little Buddha about being at last night's Boston Red Sox game. The game itself was a drag, but it was nice to catch up with my friend. More on the Sox in a bit. The guys tell me that we've got a chance for scattered thunderstorms throughout the afternoon today. Guess I better take care of my errands this morning. Most importantly, they want all of you to know that the coffee is ready. Grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. We've got another chilly morning here at the moment. It is August, right? BDH and Little Buddha say things will warm up again in the afternoon, so that's good. We had a bit of an adventure here last night...I think. I had to get up in the middle of the night, and I thought that I heard a noise and something flew by me. Well, that messed up my sleep for the rest of the night. There hasn't been any sign of this mystery creature yet, so maybe I made... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Monday to you all. Is it just me, or is it a little cold around here at the moment? BDH and Little Buddha say it's 51 degrees right now. It is still August, right? The high is supposed to be around 80 degrees later today, so that's fine, but I'm not ready to start pulling out the long-sleeve t-shirts. What I am ready for is to check out today's headlines with all of you while enjoying a cup of coffee (or maybe two.) The guys put a fresh pot on the table, so... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How's your weekend going so far? We enjoyed celebrating this site's 10th anniversary yesterday. Thank you to everyone who sent us congratulations. It's still a little mind-blowing that we completed our first decade. However, BDH and Little Buddha think that since they joined the story 8 1/2 years ago, we need to have another party in 18 months. Sounds good to me. They also want you all to know that the coffee is ready. Grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's kick off decade #2 of clearing out some... Read more →


It all began on August 3, 2009. Blogs were just starting to become a thing, and I wanted in on the fun. I found an easy-to-use publishing platform, wrote my first post about not liking a recent Boston Red Sox trade, and then there was just one thing left to do: hit the "publish" button. It took me a couple of hours to go through with it. The problem was that I'd managed to work myself into an insecure mess. There were a million other things to check out on the Internet - who would read this? I eventually decided... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! How are you? I had a number of dreams involving water last night. The Internet says those dreams reflect our spiritual side, so apparently I had some spiritual sleep. Didn't feel that spiritual when I woke up at least six times. Anyway, do you have any big plans for the weekend? I'm just looking to get in as much garden time as possible. BDH and Little Buddha said the coffee is ready, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter. (As always, if you'd... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Everyone on our end is fine at the moment, except that we can't understand how it's already both Thursday and August 1. Time is speeding up, and we don't care for it. January never goes by this quickly. Well, there's no point in grumbling about it, so let's check out today's headlines instead. BDH and Little Buddha 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 you'd like to support our coffee budget, please consider using the... Read more →
