Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We're all fine at the moment. BDH and Little Buddha just checked the weather forecast, and the high temperature is supposed to be 20 degrees with a wind chill factor of 9 degrees. That's balmy compared to yesterday, but I'm pretty sure we'll still be staying inside for most of/the entire day. We can finish watching the Denzel Washington movie, The Little Things, that we started last night. Looks like we have a big storm coming on Monday. That is not exciting, but there's nothing we can do about it except make sure... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Congratulations on making it through another week. What's the plan for the weekend? Not sure if we have much on the schedule besides staying inside and warm as much as possible. The current wind chill factor is -10 degrees, and there's just no need for that. The only problem is that someone flaked on taking care of errands yesterday, so he's got to go outside for a little bit later today. Maybe I'll wait until it warms up to something like 2 degrees. For now, let's check out the... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were just watching it snow outside. I think we're supposed to get showers for the rest of the morning, but it doesn't look like anything major. The guys think we should figure out if any errands can be done this afternoon, because the high temperatures for the next two days are supposed to be 19-22 degrees. Brr! I can only think of one thing that I need to take care of, so we'll put that on the list. For now, let's check out the headlines. There's coffee on the... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Our crew is fine at the moment. We're just plugging along. I couldn't find any new releases at the bookstore yesterday for BDH and Little Buddha to read, which was a little disappointing. There are new "One Chicago" shows on NBC tonight, so at least the guys can enjoy those this week. Maybe we can find a new movie to watch on HBO Max. Did you get the same snow we had here last night? It doesn't look like anything too major. However, I have to shovel the driveway before the real cold... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Yesterday was a rough one on this end. The anniversary of Mom Clutter's death knocks me for a loop every year. BDH and Little Buddha had the right idea when they suggested we should hang out with all of you in the morning, but I was done for the day about 10 minutes after we finished here. However, the guys were great about keeping me company all day, I got some terrific support from friends, and there was also a nap, which always helps. I'm a lucky guy. Now, let's get to work....

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How was your weekend? No complaints here, but I'm already having a bit of a hard time with today, because it's the 7th anniversary of Mom Clutter's death. That's draining by itself, and the fact that I woke up at least 25 times last night isn't helping. We usually take the 25th off because it's too hard to focus on the headlines. However, BDH and Little Buddha suggested we try it today to see if that distraction helps. I'll always trust those two, so here we go. The guys made coffee, so grab yourself a nice...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We were just trying to figure out today's schedule. I was thinking I might take care of one specific errand at some point, but BDH and Little Buddha say the high is supposed to be 29 degrees with a wind chill factor of 18 degrees. That doesn't sound like fun, so I might skip that one until next week. Maybe we'll just water the plants and then read for a while. Anyway, we'll figure that out later. The guys made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. What's the plan for the weekend? Not sure what we're doing right now. BDH and Little Buddha just pointed out that today's highs are supposed to reach the 40's, but then they drop to the mid-20's over the weekend. That likely translates to getting some fresh air this afternoon and then staying put for the next couple of days. In other words, pretty much business as usual, with a few errands possibly waiting until next week. Maybe something good is playing on HBO Max. We'll see. Anyway, the guys... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! You know, this site is a little over 11 years old now, so that means we spent about six to seven years writing for it it without having to talk about Donald Trump at length every day. That seems like centuries ago, but we're excited to do it again. What a treat to no longer have to discuss his every offensive and treasonous action, unless of course we're discussing the next development in his many legal problems. We kept waiting for something to go wrong yesterday before Joe Biden and Kamala Harris finally took their oaths... Read more →

(Programming note: We have a number of errands that have to be done before tomorrow's inauguration ceremony, so we will see you again on Thursday.) Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I was just talking to BDH and Little Buddha about how exciting it is that this is Donald Trump's last full day in the White House. The nightmare is finally almost over. At the same time, one can't help being worried about something bad happening tomorrow. Hopefully the powers-that-be have taken sufficient steps to prevent that. Yes, we're just over 24 hours away from returning to a competent... Read more →
