Hi everyone, Welcome back, and congratulations on making it to the end of yet another week. Well done! This year, man. I just found out yesterday that someone who had a huge impact on me years ago died this past summer. We don't need to get into the details, but I owe him a lot, and all I can do now is say thanks, Mike. You were one of the good guys. So, what's the plan for the weekend? We've got the usual yard work and New England Patriots game on the to-do list. Nothing too crazy, and that's fine... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? The calendar says Tuesday, so you know what that means around here - a trip to the bookstore! BDH and Little Buddha actually haven't finished reading their current book yet, so I was thinking maybe I should hold off on looking at the new releases until they're done. However, I don't get the feeling they're on board with that plan, so I'll be heading out once we sort through the headlines. (You can't see it, but they both just smiled a little more when I wrote that.) The guys made you coffee, so... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! What's the plan for the weekend? I don't think we have anything too crazy happening besides some yard work and watching the New England Patriots play the Seattle Seahawks. The game is on Sunday night, so I should probably take a nap at some point earlier in the day. Yeah, that about sums it up. BDH and Little Buddha just mentioned that the highs will be in the lower 60's for the next few days, so I may have to finally put on some pants. I'd like to argue,... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We're all generally doing fine at the moment. Still adjusting to the fact that we're waking up in the dark again. Guess we'll have to go back to using the alarm clock, because we're going to be pretty late if we wait for the sun to rise. I'm not sure if September seems like it's going by quickly, or if I've just lost all track of time because it's always been 2020. That's something to ponder while watching today's New England Patriots game. (Seriously, how is football already here?) BDH and Little Buddha... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Yesterday was a bit of a mixed bag around here. I had a productive morning and even found two new books for BDH and Little Buddha to read! Pretty sure it will take the guys at least a week to get through both of them. Score! The afternoon was a little frustrating, though. Everyone at the grocery store got on my nerves, and then I only got to talk to Dad Clutter in his front yard for about 5-10 minutes because rain cut our visit short. I miss the days when I could...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We're all doing well here at the moment. Last night was the best sleep I've had all week, so that always helps. BDH and Little Buddha say we're looking at much more reasonable low temperatures for the rest of the month, which is a relief. Trying to sleep when it's 75 degrees is a drag. I watered the garden yesterday, and that made both the plants and me feel better. We're clearly in the back quarter of gardening season. I don't know how that happened so quickly, but I'm still hoping the remaining... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and congratulations on completing another week! Any big plans for the weekend? I don't think we have anything too crazy on the schedule here. Our big excitement came last night when I (intentionally) sprayed myself with the hose after watering the garden. The flowers enjoy it so much, I wanted in on the fun. BDH and Little Buddha were giggling for the rest of the night after that happened. Sometimes you just have to break out the silly, you know? Other times, you you have to break out the coffee. As it turns out, we have... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Sorry it's so stuffy in here. The fan should get some air flow going. How's your weekend been so far? Apart from the mugginess, things are fine on this end at the moment. BDH and Little Buddha just finished their latest Elmore Leonard book, so I'm once again looking for something else for them to read. Any suggestions? I'm not sure what's on today's schedule, apart from the Red Sox - Yankees game tonight, but I guess we'll figure that out later. For now, let's take a peek at the news. The guys... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I know this isn't our normal schedule, but our IT staff (i.e. BDH and Little Buddha) aren't sure if we will be here on Monday while they try to fix our technical problems, so they at lest be able to say hello today. (They get cranky if they go too long without seeing you.) The guys also want to make sure you know that today's high's are supposed to be in the mid-90's, so do whatever you have to in order to stay cool and comfortable. We've already lowered the shades, and I'm... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Our staff is all doing well, although it still seems colder than it should be for the first week in May. Yesterday was pretty productive, but I felt antsy later in the afternoon. It wasn't warm enough to hang out in the garden, so I went for a short run on the treadmill. If you told me in January I would become a guy who jogged more than 20 feet this year, I would have looked at you like you were crazy. Of course, if you told me anything about how 2020 would...
