July 2021

Hi folks, Welcome back, and congratulations on completing another week! I think we're going to take it pretty easy today while we figure out what the plan is for the weekend, besides squeezing in as much garden time as possible, of course. The office plants need watering, and then we could probably stand to tidy up a bit around here. BDH and Little Buddha say today's forecast looks good, so we'll also have to get a little fresh air later. However, let's check out the headlines first. The guys made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's... Read more →

The rumors are true: The BBC confirmed that Jodie Whittaker and Chris Chibnall will both be leaving Doctor Who, following three specials that will air in 2022. This feels like a mixed bag. "Three series and out" has been the standard operating procedure for the lead actor during the modern era of the show, so it's not a surprise that this change is coming. (Although, we would love it if the next Doctor would break that pattern.) However, it's still disappointing, particularly because Jodie Whittaker has gotten a raw deal during her time as our favorite Time Lord. We'd rather... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back! How are you? I had a great time at Fenway Park yesterday afternoon, even though the Red Sox lost. It was my first regular season day game in about 10 years, the weather was terrific (as opposed to the typhoon the night before), and it was a blast to catch up with my friend Kate. I also managed to get some color without getting burned, so yeah, that was fun. It's back to the to-do list today, but BDH and Little Buddha say it's not supposed to rain until tonight, so that should be fine. In... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I had quite the adventure last night. Went to Fenway Park to see the Boston Red Sox play the Toronto Blue Jays. This is "Season Ticket Holder Appreciation Week," so they let me in a little bit before everyone else, which was nice. After that, I got to spin a prize wheel and win myself a game-used baseball and a candle. I've been going to Red Sox games since 1982, and this is my first game-used ball, so that was pretty cool. My friend Kate eventually got there, and that was the first... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I'm sorry it's a bit smoky in here. Pretty sure that's from the wildfires on the other side of the country, which is just crazy. We'll turn on the fans. Doing errands yesterday afternoon was a little challenging because of the poor air quality, and I understand it will be more of the same today. Of course, that won't stop me from making the weekly trip to check out the new releases at the local bookstore. BDH and Little Buddha have finished two out of their three new books since last week, so... Read more →

Hi folks, How are you? We hope you had a great weekend. No complaints on this end. Got in a little garden time, had dinner with Dad Clutter, there was finally some Doctor Who news, and BDH and Little Buddha continue to enjoy their latest book. We have a fairly busy week ahead, so the guys were just checking out the weather forecast to make sure there won't be any major problems with the schedule. It doesn't look like we will have to deal with any rain until Thursday, so that's good. In the meantime, let's get to work. There's... Read more →

(Of course, no sooner had the return of the Doctor been teased, than it was announced that Jodie Whittaker and Chris Chibnall would be leaving the show. Click here for our thoughts on their pending departure.) It feels like it's been ages since the last time we saw the 13th Doctor in action. Thankfully, the wait is almost over, and our favorite Time Lord will be back at it again soon! Doctor Who fans have been given a double treat with the release of a new trailer (finally), as well as a special Comic-Con panel featuring showrunner Chris Chibnall, Jodie... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Shocker of all shockers, it's raining at the moment. I know, stunning, right? BDH and Little Buddha say it's supposed to end early this afternoon, so that's fine. I really shouldn't complain - the garden looks great, and the birds, bees, and butterflies (plus an occasional toad) all seem to be having a blast hanging out in the flowers. Besides, there's an online Doctor Who Comic-Con event at 1:00 today, so fingers crossed they'll have a trailer for the new season. Yeah, I feel better already. Let's get to work. The guys made...

The story of Jeffrey Epstein is a stain on the United States. The wealthy businessman spent years sexually abusing underage women, while forcing many of them to also perform services for his associates. He faced little to no repercussions for his actions for the majority of his life until his suspicious death in a prison cell in 2019. This monster ruined many lives, and rather than provide justice, the U.S. judicial system failed his victims at almost every turn because he had the vast resources to evade meaningful consequences. Many people know the general outline of the story as we... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Any big plans for the weekend? We've got some running around to do, but it might depend a little bit on the weather. Speaking of which, BDH and Little Buddha say the reason the birds are chirping so loudly this morning is that they're trying to warn us about thunderstorms this afternoon, so we better get to work. 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 Friday Clutter. Mississippi officials have made it clear:... Read more →
