Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Any big plans for the weekend? I'm sure we'll extend BDH's birthday celebration for a few more days. He had a good day yesterday, and he wanted me to tell you how nice it was to hear from so many friends. That's really his most favorite part of his birthday, so thank you to everyone who made him smile even more than usual. Of course, we need to take a look at the headlines before we get back to the party. BDH and Little Buddha made some coffee (which... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? It didn't start snowing until it was almost dark yesterday, and it was something like 20 degrees outside at that point, so my desire to shovel was not high/nowhere to be found. It looks like it's going to take a little while to clear everything today. I'm guessing it's pretty heavy at this point, thanks to last night's freezing rain. The biggest challenge will be clearing out the end of the driveway where the snowplows packed it all in overnight. Good times. BDH and Little Buddha remind... Read more →


Our friend Brian recently introduced us to the YouTube series, Hot Ones. The show is hosted by Sean Evans who interviews his guest while the two of them eat increasingly hot chicken wings. After only a handful of episodes, we're hooked. The segments are roughly 25-30 minutes long, and they're a combination of celebrity interview and endurance test which ends up becoming a sort of performance art. Evans has a relaxed presence about him. He asks his guests interesting questions about their personal lives, careers, and Instagram posts, and the celebrities seem eager to engage, while nervously making jokes about... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Monday to you all! BDH and Little Buddha were just looking at the weather forecast again. They're telling me I might need to stretch a bit before tomorrow's snow arrives, but then it's going to be warmer after that, and the rain might wash it all away. Hmm. Well, some stretching would do me good anyway, so it looks like that's on the schedule for later. In the meantime, let's see what's going on in the world. The guys made a fresh pot of coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How's your weekend going? BDH and Little Buddha have been focusing on their book while I take care of some errands. In hindsight, I'm not sure what they're reading is age-appropriate, but I guess that ship has sailed. (You can read their review in a few weeks.) The guys decided to take a break, so they asked if we could all hang out for a bit. What am I going to do, say no? I don't think so. They just made some coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? There's a chance we won't be able to meet up tomorrow, so BDH and Little Buddha wanted to make sure we said today, especially before the Super Bowl, but we'll get to that in a bit. Anything big on the schedule today? We've just got a few errands to run, and it looks like it might actually reach the 30's later, so that will be nice. Other than that, it's mostly waiting for the big game on Sunday. The guys say we need coffee. I certainly won't... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Happy February 1, as well! We're pleased to get out of January for a number of reasons, including that sunsets are now close to 5:00, and oh, we have some birthdays coming soon! That should be fun. We're so excited to be in a new month, we almost didn't notice that the heat didn't seem to be working when we woke up this morning. However, it's on now, and BDH and Little Buddha just made coffee, so everything is back on track. Help yourself to a nice medium DD,... Read more →


After a three-month hiatus, late night talk show host Conan O'Brien is back on TBS with his revamped program, and it doesn't appear that he's missed a beat. The new format is only thirty minutes long, and it will feature more remote segments instead of celebrity interviews. This should mean Conan can be a little more laid-back. So far, the initial results are promising. The Brookline native recently visited the Samuel Adams Brewery in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, and it was a trip. First, Conan had an extended conversation with Jim Koch about the history of beer. Second, he made things... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How's your week going? We're all doing well here at the moment, particularly since January is almost over. I will admit that my excitement for going outside later is, shall we say, not high. BDH and Little Buddha point out that least we don't live in the Midwest, and I'll be fine as long as I wear enough layers. Five should do, right? They just smile when I ask questions like that. Fortunately, they also make terrific coffee. There's a fresh pot on the table, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, because it's time... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? We were just trying to figure out what to today since there's no football this week. BDH and Little Buddha seem to think this would be a good day to do a laundry. Not sure if they're trying to tell me something, but they're right. However, let's see what's going on in today's headlines first. The guys made some coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Sunday Clutter. The 2020 presidential election is still a long ways off... Read more →
