Hi everyone, Welcome back! We were just trying to figure out the plan for the day. The book that BDH and Little Buddha have been waiting for still hasn't come in the mail yet, and the New England Patriots are off this week, so maybe we'll just watch some football games where we have no vested interest for a change. Oh, speaking of our fantastic duo, they were thrilled to discover yesterday that they made the letters section of the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine! Such a treat. The letter is under my name, because we didn't want to... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. BDH, Little Buddha, and I were just talking about the fact that it's Election Day. The guys want to know if they can vote today, but I had to remind them that we voted early this year, so they asked me to remind you to get out and express your views at your local polling place. They're so excited to watch the results come in tonight, I don't know how I'm going to keep them busy in the meantime. I think they still have at least one book to read.... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Hmm, the birds are chirping up a storm this morning. They haven't done that in a while. Wonder what that's all about. Anyway, what's the plan for the weekend? Raking leaves is the biggest item on our to-do list, but this rain might mean we have to wait until Sunday. The other problem is that what I mostly have to do now is clear out the garden beds, but the ground hasn't frozen over enough for me to really get in there with the rake without worrying about messing...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! What a night we had here! I haven't been feeling great the last few days, so I made sure to go to bed at a reasonable hour on Monday. I was out like a light, and everything was fine until 2:00 in the morning when the wind kicked in. It just seemed a little strong at first, but then we got to the howling part, and that's no fun. I was up for about 90 minutes before either things calmed down or my exhaustion overcame the noise. Thankfully, we didn't lose power, and BDH and Little... Read more →


Everyone knows that Clearing out the Clutter runs on Dunkin' Donuts (DD) coffee. There's no way we'd be able to function without our morning caffeine infusion. Fun fact: Some members of our staff also like beer. Not like Brett Kavanaugh enjoys beer or anything, but we've been known to have an occasional beverage in the evening. That's why we knew we'd have to research the new Harpoon Dunkin' Coffee Porter and share the results with all of you. Does a "classic porter" mix with DD's espresso-blend coffee? Let's see. Mind you, we are not beer experts. We know what we... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! What are you up to this weekend? I've got a lot of yard work to take care of, and Doctor Who returns on Sunday, which is like a holiday around here. BDH and Little Buddha can't wait for Jodie Whittaker make her debut as the 13th Doctor. They're excited to see her in action, and they think that anyone who is angry she's in the role is a silly person who isn't worth their time. No argument here. For now, let's see what's going on in the world. The... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I was just telling BDH and Little Buddha about the trivia contest I participated in last night. Our team tied for third place, but we would have had third to ourselves if I just could have remembered the name of the Top Gear show. I knew Matt LeBlanc was one of the current hosts, and I could see the promotional materials, but alas. Oh well, we still had fun. Hey, does anyone here know how to reach a live support person at Facebook? Drop us a line... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were just trying to figure out why the birds are chatting up such a storm this morning. BDH thinks they're talking about their weekend plans, and Little Buddha thinks they're discussing how quickly this summer has gone by. Hold on, now they both think the birds were discussing what time you would arrive. Now that we've got that resolved, let's see what's going on in today's headlines. There's a fresh pot of coffee on the counter, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I might have to ask for some patience from all of you today. I slept horribly last night, so things are moving a little slowly around here at the moment. I don't know what happened, it just felt like the heat and humidity increased 100% after I went to bed. Today's forecast calls for some severe storms, and while I don't love the "severe" part, it would be nice to have an excuse to stay inside today. BDH and Little Buddha said they could handle whatever I... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! On behalf of the Clearing out the Clutter crew, we'd like to wish you all a happy July 4th! It's probably going to be a low-key affair here, as our main focus will be continuing to hide from the heat. However, we'll be in the garden as soon as the sun starts setting. We gave everything a good soaking yesterday, and there are already new colors all over the place! So, whatever you do today, have fun and be safe, particularly if you're going to play with fireworks. I asked BDH and Little Buddha if they... Read more →
