Hi everyone, How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were just checking the weather forecast. It looks like we now have at least light rain in the forecast all the way through tonight. I'm sure the garden is loving this, and it's got to help ease the drought conditions this area has been looking at recently. (I'm also glad I already mowed the lawn last weekend.) I'm not sure if we're going to make it to the bookstore today, but we'll get there tomorrow at the latest. In the meantime, let's check out today's headlines. The guys made coffee, so...

Our longtime readers will remember when we went to the 2019 Fan Expo Boston comic book convention in order to meet Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi. The 12th Doctor couldn't have been nicer, and it was weeks before we finally regained our composure. The whole experience was a thrill, but those kinds of events aren't really in our comfort zone, so we assumed it would be a one-time affair. Unless of course, David Tennant was going to appear. Well, guess who showed up on the celebrity guest list this past April: That's right, the 10th Doctor himself was coming to... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? BDH, Little Buddha, and I were just talking about whether or not we think this will be the week I finally find something new for them to read. I'm a little discouraged about our recent lack of success, but the guys say every Tuesday brings a new opportunity, and they like our chances. Plus, if it doesn't work out, we still have the new Netflix Sandman series to look forward to on Friday. They always see the bright side. Before I forget, we may not be here tomorrow and/or Thursday. It will probably... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back, and a happy Monday to you all. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your weekend. I had some extended garden time yesterday, so everything was great on this end. A quick reminder that we are working on a shortened schedule this week. Our crew will be here today and tomorrow, and then we'll be out of the office until next Monday. We're looking forward to our adventures, but BDH and Little Buddha want you to know they'll miss you. They also want to make sure you know the coffee is ready. Grab yourself a nice... Read more →

Hi folks, How are you? We're all doing fine at the moment, thank you very much. Our crack IT squad (i.e. BDH and Little Buddha) had to work on an unexpected issue for a few hours yesterday. Unfortunately, I had to leave to run errands before they were 100% certain they had fixed the problem. However, everything is running smoothly again, so a round of applause for all of their hard work! Those two are the best. I hope to be able to properly reward them for all of their hard work by finding a new release at the bookstore... Read more →

As a member of Generation X, it's safe to say that the 1990's were the most transformative decade of my lifetime. Growing up as a kid in in the 1980's provided a seemingly straightforward framework of how the world operated. A young person could easily believe that this would last forever. Perhaps everyone thinks this about their childhood. However, it seemed like we were cruising down the road of understood expectations, and then we went flying off the map. The 90's was a time of overwhelming change in every aspect of life. It can sometimes be startling to realize that... Read more →

Will Smith is one of the biggest stars in our lifetime. He's succeeded in multiple mediums with Grammy award-winning rap albums, one of the most popular TV shows of the 1990's, and he also starred in a record eight straight movies that grossed at least $100 million. Smith has a famous wife and kids, and he is recognized and loved by audiences around the world. In short, he's a BFD.

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? What a crazy week. Sorry we had to step out for a few days. A couple of things hit at the same time, and we had to focus on that craziness for a while. However, everything seems to have settled down (fingers crossed.) Any big plans for the weekend? We've got the New England Patriots game and the Doctor Who premiere, so that will be fun, and then the rest probably depends on the weather, as another storm approaches tomorrow. Anyway, enough chitchat - let's get to work. BDH and Little Buddha made... Read more →

It's been just over a year since Eddie Van Halen died, but it's still hard to believe that the guitar icon is no longer with us. The man reinvented his instrument, both with his playing approach and technical innovations., setting the stage for legions of imitators to try to copy him. He lit up the rock music landscape for almost 50 years, from infamous backyard parties in high school, to Los Angeles clubs, and then arenas around the world. He was a creative force who went through some mind-blowing highs and dark lows during the course of his life. However,... Read more →
