Hi everyone, Welcome back! How was the rest of your weekend? I had a great time in the garden yesterday afternoon. A little sore this morning, but not too bad. Filled four yard waste bags, and I still have some more work to do before the compost arrives in two weeks. That's okay, we'll get there. BDH and Little Buddha say the birds are chirping about how there's some sunlight now when we wake up in the morning. That definitely makes for a better start to the day. So, overall, we're all doing well, and now you're here, which makes... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? It looks like this should be a lovely day. BDH and Little Buddha have been listening to the birds as usual this morning. One bird keeps chirping the same tune over and over. The guys tell me what their friend is saying is, "We will have terrific weather today, and you should hang out with us in your garden this afternoon." Who am I to argue? It's time to start the next stage of clean-up before the compost arrives in two weeks. Of course, that also means it's time to start stretching for... Read more →

There are of course many reasons to dislike the year 2020. The coronavirus pandemic claimed millions of lives and forever altered millions more. We also lost many notable public figures. One of those that personally stings is the late actor Chadwick Boseman, who died from colon cancer at the young age of 43. Boseman's passing was a shock, because no one even seemed to know that he was sick in the first place. To give the performances that he did while fighting that deadly disease makes his career all the more inspiring. The man was spellbinding in every role he... Read more →

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Nancy Wilson is a guitar legend in her own right, blazing a path of hard rock glory with sister Ann and the band Heart since the 1970's. Her first solo album, called You and Me, will be out on May 7, and it includes a tribute to the late great Eddie Van Halen. We were intrigued when we first heard Wilson mention this piece in interviews a few months ago, because she and the guitar icon aren't usually grouped together, with Wilson playing a perhaps more straight-forward blues-based style than Eddie. However, there's no... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! It's a rainy Friday, but it's still the end of the week, so that's fine. Looks like it's going to rain all day, so I'm having a hard time thinking of excuses for why I shouldn't get some stuff done around here after we finish going through the headlines, but I'll give it my best shot. BDH and Little Buddha say they'll do their best to keep me productive, so things should go well. The guys made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Doing okay, or already counting the hours until the weekend? We're just plugging away here. BDH and Little Buddha were staring out the window listening to the birds, and they realized the leaves are starting to show on the trees. It seems like that just happened in the last 48 hours. Is this the best time of the year? You're shaking off the winter and still have so much to look forward to, but it's not time to break out the fans yet. Well, we can debate whether or not it's the best,... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How's your week going so far? Everything is fine on our end at the moment, except I couldn't find a new book for BDH and Little Buddha to read yesterday. That was a little disappointing, except I just remembered that someone they like has a new release next week. That's exciting. Well, I guess they'll focus on listening to the birds and watching Red Sox games until then. Sounds like a solid schedule. For now, let's check out the headlines. There's a fresh pot of coffee on the counter, so grab yourself a nice medium DD,... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were up early listening to the birds chirping away this morning. The guys think the birds were reminding me to check out the new releases at the bookstore after we're done here. Sounds like someone is eager for something new to read. Guess we better get to work then. There's a fresh pot of coffee on the counter, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Tuesday Clutter.

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Sorry we missed you over the weekend, but I unexpectedly got my first vaccination shot on Friday afternoon, and it had me a bit out of commission on Saturday. Felt better Sunday, but I had twice the running around to do since I didn't get much done the day before. Now we're back in business. BDH and Little Buddha were very excited when I told them I was off to get my shot. We thought it was more likely to happen somewhere in mid-May at the earliest. Now I have concrete plans to...

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! What's the plan for the weekend? Not sure what we're doing here, apart from a handful of errands, but we'll find something fun to add to the list. BDH and Little Buddha have been keeping me company since about 4:30 this morning while I look for vaccination appointments online. I got close a couple of times yesterday, but the search continues. The whole thing has a strong "Hunger Games" vibe to it. The birds have been chirping away like crazy, and the guys say they're offering their encouragement, which... Read more →
