Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Unfortunately, I struck out at the bookstore yesterday. There just wasn't anything that seemed like a good fit for BDH and Little Buddha, so I'm going to comb through our shelves and see if I can find anything they might like. The good news is that the free local weekly comes out later this morning, and that means the guys will have a new rock and roll crossword puzzle to focus on for a few hours today. It also sounds like the weather should be a little more tolerable, which is nice, especially... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! This week went by disturbingly quickly. Any big plans for the weekend? I think we're done with the rain for a couple of days. BDH and Little Buddha just finished reading their latest book, so I need to find another activity for them. Oh, the Red Sox are playing tonight. The guys love baseball, so that will be fun. In any case, these two are so happy you're here, they just made you a fresh pot of coffee. Grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Doing what you need to in order to keep yourselves and your loved ones safe? I think today will be pretty quiet on this end. BDH and Little Buddha already finished the final volume of The Dreaming trilogy. They loved it so much, they want to start over from the beginning, so that should take a few days. However, they want to hang out with all of you first. There's a fresh pot of coffee on the counter, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Thursday... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We're all doing fine, thanks for asking. I gave the garden a good long soaking last night. I'm sure it helped, but some rain would also be terrific. BDH and Little Buddha saw something about we've only gotten around 25% of the usual amount of precipitation for June, which is no good. It's pretty cloudy outside at the moment, but the guys say that's supposed to mostly burn off later this morning. That's unfortunate. Maybe we'll get some tomorrow. In any case, let's check out the headlines. There's a fresh pot of coffee... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! The world may be insane, but at least the sun is shining, and the birds are chirping, so that's a start. The birds are actually a big deal here. One of the many reasons we were sad to lose the Clutter Tree last fall is that BDH and Little Buddha used to love watching the birds hanging out on its branches all summer. The guys did that for hours at a time, and they were crushed to lose one of their favorite hobbies. However at least they can still listen to all of the singing. Maybe... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We're all okay at the moment. Still annoyed by the unseasonably cool weather, but at least the sun is shining, and the birds seem to be having fun as they chirp up a storm. I woke up for a few minutes around 4:30 this morning, and they were already chatting away about something or other. BDH and Little Buddha think they were talking about whether or not there will be any baseball this year. They apparently don't sound optimistic. In any case, let's check out today's headlines. The guys made coffee, so grab... 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...

Hi everyone, (Sorry for the delay. We were minutes away from hitting the "publish" button this morning, when our site's host crashed. BDH and Little Buddha stayed on top of things, and now we're ready to go, so let's get to it!) Welcome back! We've made it through the first third of 2020, so give yourself a round of applause. Here's hoping the next four months lighten up a bit. I finished spreading the compost yesterday, so gardening season is officially off and running. Still a little sore and stiff, but it's not as bad as yesterday, and things should... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Everyone still in one piece? I was just talking to BDH and Little Buddha about today's to-do list. I need to mail something, so that's going to be my excuse to take a short walk at some point this afternoon. Other than that, it looks like we'll be taking care of the houseplants for a bit and stretching in anticipation of Monday's compost delivery for the garden. The guys just told me that there's snow in Monday's forecast. Sounds about right. Anyway, that's where we're at right now. There's a fresh pot of... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and congratulations on making it through another week! That calls for a round of applause. Sorry we're a little late. BDH and Little Buddha thought I might benefit from not turning on the alarm before I went to bed last night. Sleep is a weird deal these days. I'm out cold for about the first three hours, and then it's hit-or-miss. I don't usually have insomnia, but I might wake up 10 times for the remainder of the evening, so it's not always that restful. It seemed to catch up with me yesterday, thus the suggestion... Read more →
