Hi everyone, Welcome back! I'm sorry we're late. We're having some technical difficulties that are causing some issues. Our crack IT team (BDH and Little Buddha) are hard at work on the matter. They hope to have everything resolved by the end of the weekend, but there's a chance we'll need to make a service call, so our programming schedule might be a little spotty next week. We'll be sure to keep you updated on our Facebook page with any new developments. The guys also made another pot of coffee, in case any of you are dragging. (Have I mentioned... Read more →

The United States has suffered immensely from Donald Trump's psychological issues for the past three years. The man lies as easily as he breathes, he lives in a fantasy world where he is in any way an exceptional individual, he takes responsibility for none of his failures, and he seems driven by an immense innate cruelty that few others can match. He also has the emotional stability of a three-year-old child. When faced with criticism, his reflexive response is to lash out in a tantrum on Twitter. None of this is breaking news. However, there is a question that needs... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha are excited because it's new release day at the local bookstore, so they're hoping yours truly will make a field trip for them in a little while. (Spoiler: I'll do it.) I might get a little wet because it sounds like it's supposed to rain for most of the day. That would be great for the garden, but we'll see if it actually happens. For now, let's check out today's headlines. The guys made a fresh pot of coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? It's a cloudy morning here. BDH and Little Buddha say we're supposed to have thunderstorms this afternoon. We'll see if that actually happens, but the garden could always use some more rain. Either way, the guys will spend most of the day reading their new book, so we're all set. It was such a treat to finally go inside our local independent bookstore for the first time in four months yesterday. We couldn't find anything our crew wanted in the new releases section, so we picked out "Get Shorty" by Elmore Leonard, and... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Our crew is a little excited this morning because we're taking a trip to the local bookstore later today! It's been a long four months since our last visit. We've ordered a few books online during quarantine, and that's worked out well. However, there's nothing like being able to roam the aisles and coming across a book that wasn't on your radar. I hope we can find something for BDH and Little Buddha to read. They've been such good sports throughout all of this, and they deserve a treat. Fingers crossed. In the... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! It's so good to reconnect with all of you. Feels like we were gone forever. It's probably a good idea in theory for us to take a few days off every now and again, but in practice, we just end up missing you and wanting to get back to work. How was your 4th? We spent a large chunk of it watching Hugh Laurie's "Avenue 5", and as much as we love Laurie, that show was not great. However, we also saw "Knives Out," and that lived up to the hype. Did you get the insane... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Yesterday was not that productive of a day here, apart from getting in some quality garden time in the evening. As a result, BDH and Little Buddha are trying to work out a schedule that will make me feel better about today. Those guys really do everything. It seems like we're done with the rain for now, so I should be able to get in a bike ride after we're done here. That's a good start. They're also trying to figure out what our plans will be for the long weekend. I'll check... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I'm just waiting for BDH and Little Buddha to come in with today's weather forecast. Oh, here they are. (They say hi.) Apparently there's roughly a 50% chance of some rain throughout the day, but it seems more likely for tomorrow. We can work with that. The garden got another solid watering last night, so the plants are loving this week right now. Anyway, it's the last day of June, so we're about to close out the first half of 2020. I know, it feels we've been in this mess for a decade... Read more →

Racism has dominated the headlines recently in light of a number of high-profile murders, including George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, among others. The flames of animosity have been furthered fanned by Donald Trump, who is counting on racial discord to help him win a second term in the White House. Black Lives Matter protests are being held across the country and consistently met with pushback in the form of "All Lives Matter" chants. At first glance, it seems pretty easy to distinguish the "bad" guys from the "good" guys. The problem is that drawing that line allows all... Read more →

Hi everyone, How are you? How was your weekend? I had a nice time celebrating a socially distanced Father's Day with Dad Clutter yesterday. Besides that, I wasn't all that productive, but that's okay. We'll take care of business this week. It was steamy in the bedroom last night. Unfortunately, I mean that literally. There's no doubt that summer is here. BDH, Little Buddha, and I are going to revisit the idea of installing some A/C, because that was rough. Anyway, let's check out the headlines. The guys made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time... Read more →
