Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I'm feeling a little beat up at the moment, although I'm not sure why. BDH and Little Buddha suggest some stretching when we're done here. Sounds like a plan. We had a little craziness due to a grease fire at Dad Clutter's house yesterday. Long story short, everyone and everything is fine, but it was a touch on the dicey side, and I don't think it would have taken much longer for it to escalate into a serious problem. Hopefully that will be the most dramatic event... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How is the official start of summer treating you so far? No complaints here. Dad Clutter and I were at Friday's Boston Red Sox game and enjoyed that dramatic win over the Toronto Blue Jays. If you watch the video of Christian Vazquez's walk-off home run, you'll see the ball bounced out of the Boston bullpen and into the bleachers about 20 feet to our right. That's the closest a ball has come my seats so far, so the dream of someday catching one is still alive! We're still waiting... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! I was just telling BDH and Little Buddha that the next time I'm supposed to stay home to sign for a package, I'm just going to have it rerouted to the local holding place and pick it up a day later. I don't know why I thought it might come early yesterday, but the UPS guy didn't show up until 7:30. It was not what we would call a "great use of time," but live and learn I guess. Now I have something else to pick up today, and... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. I was just telling BDH and Little Buddha that we have an important delivery coming today. The problem is that it requires a signature. The package will be here some time before 8:00 tonight, and I only have to be out for a couple of hours, but I feel like there's a 95% chance I'm going to miss it. The guys say they'd be happy to sign for it, but I don't think a blue dog paw or a small Buddha butt print are considered valid. (That's totally discriminatory by... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? It's pretty grey outside at the moment. I'm being told that's the forecast for the whole day. Hmm, it kind of makes me want to go back to bed, but there's too much to do, so that's not going to happen. BDH and Little Buddha say they're happy to encourage me throughout the day if that's helpful. Of course it's helpful. They're the two best motivators I know. Of course, it also doesn't hurt that they make great coffee. Speaking of which, there's a fresh pot on... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were just giving me the latest weather forecast. It called for rain at one point a few days ago, but now I guess we're just looking at mostly cloudy with maybe some precipitation tonight. I'll take it. The guys also said that the coffee is ready, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Tuesday Clutter. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) doesn't understand why Jon Stewart is "bent out of shape" over the funding of the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund. McConnell basically said...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. Sorry we're late. I've tried several times over the last few weeks to get the Clutter Car detailed, but the local place doesn't take appointments, and every time I went, they told me it would either be a three-hour wait, or they couldn't take me that day. I was determined to finally get it done, so I showed up about 30 minutes before they opened this morning. Success! I treated myself to a haircut after that, and BDH and Little Buddha think I and the car both look good, which... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Wait, a quick programming note before we go any further: There's a chance we may be late getting here on Monday, and a smaller chance we may not be back until Tuesday. Okay, where were we? Right, how are you? BDH and Little Buddha were just looking at today's weather forecast. It rained a bit overnight, which is always good for the garden. Now it looks like it could be one of those days where there's a chance of more rain all day but it never seems... Continue reading

We were just roaming around on the Internet, looking for any sign of a new story about the upcoming season of Doctor Who. Unfortunately, all's quiet at the moment, apart from a couple of early publicity shots. Our travels eventually lead us to an article about Lewis Capaldi, the 22 year-old Scottish singer-songwriter, who is some relation to the 12th Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi. (It sounds like they're third cousins twice removed, or something like that.) A few more clicks later, and we landed on this video for Lewis Capaldi's song, "Someone You Loved," which features his famous relative. Capaldi... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! We've got a busy day planned here today. There are a couple of errands to be done this morning, and then there's the fun that is waiting for a repair appointment that has a four-hour window this afternoon. Thankfully, BDH and Little Buddha found a new book to read, so they can focus on that while we wait. Good times. Anyway, let's check out today's headlines. The guys just brought in a fresh pot of coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. BDH and Little Buddha were just consoling me about the Stanley Cup Final. As they point out, I should be able to get back to a more consistent sleep schedule now that hockey is over. Those two always do a tremendous job of keeping things in perspective. They also make great coffee. Speaking of which, there's a fresh pot on the table, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter. Donald Trump admitted in a televised interview with George Stephanopoulos that he wouldn't feel... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. I was just talking to BDH and Little Buddha about last night's Red Sox game. The game itself was atrocious (more on that later), but it was great to catch up with a friend who I haven't seen in about 20 years. Of course I was up past my bedtime again, and Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals is tonight, so the guys are trying to figure out the best time for a nap this afternoon. They're terrific schedulers, you know. For now, we'll focus on powering through the... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I got to sleep at a decent hour since there was no Stanley Cup Final game last night, and that was helpful. Of course, it was a little challenging to get up this morning with the rain falling outside. Of course, the plants are loving it, and if it drops the pollen count a bit, that's a bonus. BDH and Little Buddha say it's supposed to clear up around noon. That works. In the meantime, let's check out today's headlines. The guys made coffee, so grab yourself... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I was up past my bedtime once again, thanks to the Stanley Cup Finals. It was worth it, mind you, but I'll be moving slowly today. The only real issue is that I have a meeting later this morning, so I'm going to need some coffee ahead of time to make sure I'm not just blankly staring at the other people in the room. As it turns out, BDH and Little Buddha just made a fresh pot, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Monday Clutter. We were... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How's your weekend going so far? I was running around like a madman yesterday. It was a little crazy, but it was also productive, and the weather was gorgeous, so I'll take it. I think I fell asleep about 10 seconds after going to bed, but then I woke up in the middle of the night because it sounded like there were bottle rockets going off in the driveway. However, the noise stopped right after I looked out the window. People were definitely shooting off fireworks in the neighborhood when... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! What are you up to this weekend? Gardening time is the priority on the to-do list as usual around here. BDH and Little Buddha are once again on the hunt for another book to read, so let us know if you have any suggestions. Speaking of those two, the guys have been listening to the birds all morning, but they took a break from that to make some coffee There's a fresh pot on the counter, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Is it just me, or is this week going by quickly? I took a nap before last night's condo association meeting. The problem was that I didn't set the alarm, so I slept for about twice as long as I should have let myself rest. I still made the meeting, but it was hard to get back to sleep later, so today should be fun. As for the meeting itself, the big win was that I ignored my anxiety about attending, but I'm glad they're only once... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. We were just looking at the weather forecast. It's cloudy at the moment, and this afternoon looks like it's supposed to be pretty ugly. That's not fun. There's a meeting I should attend tonight, although I'm not excited about it, and the idea of thunderstorms isn't helping. BDH and Little Buddha think I should focus on the rest of the day first, and then we can revisit that when it gets closer. Works for me. In the meantime, the guys made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and... Continue reading

Let's get this out of the way right at the beginning: Clearing out the Clutter is adamantly pro-dog. We talk to every dog we see on the street (often ignoring their owners), we've got a blue dog running the office (just look at the picture on the right side of this screen), and if forced to say who we like better between people and dogs, the pooches win 99.9% of the time. Long story short: Dogs rule. However, we also appreciate the magnificent and fascinating creatures commonly known as cats. Whereas a dog will make it clear you're the greatest... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? The week is off to a decent start so far on this end. The sun is shining, and that always helps. Moving a little slowly right now because this NHL Stanley Cup Finals thing is fun, but it keeps me up past my bedtime, and a guy needs his rest. The good news is that BDH and Little Buddha went on a shopping run yesterday and bought more coffee. They just made a fresh pot, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? The rain showed up as promised yesterday, so the garden got a solid soaking, which is great. BDH and Little Buddha say we've got sunshine in the forecast for today, which is also nice, because I need to run a few errands. By the way, how did it become June already? We'll save that discussion for another time. The guys just put a fresh pot of coffee on the counter, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Monday Clutter. Donald Trump is in the United Kingdom and he's... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? It's looking a little dreary here this morning, but BDH and Little Buddha tell me I should still have enough time for a bike ride before the rain starts. We'll see if that rain actually shows up, or if it's just cloudy all day. I'd be good with the rain (after the ride), because I'm sure the garden wouldn't mind a solid soaking, but we'll see. First, let's check out today's headlines. The guys say the coffee is ready, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because... Continue reading

As a general rule, we're inclined to dread the impending arrival of Armageddon. It just does not sound like a fun time at all. However, given that it provides an opportunity for David Tennant and Michael Sheen to team up, we're willing to keep an open mind. It turns out that's a good call, because the two stars of the new Amazon Prime Video series, Good Omens, are a perfect match as a demon and angel trying to prevent the end of the world. It's up to an angel and a demon to save everyone. (pic via imdb.com) Based on... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! What's on the schedule for this weekend? I've got a few errands to take care of, but I'm mostly looking forward to some garden time and maybe a bike ride. Oh, and Good Omens is finally out on Amazon Prime Video, so we'll have to get started on that. BDH and Little Buddha can't wait to see David Tennant and Michael Sheen as a devil and angel who are out to stop the apocalypse. They're particularly excited that there's a dog in the story. However, let's check out today's... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Been a busy day here so far. It started with another doctor's appointment this morning. The good news is that everything seems to be fine. It was just a frustrating experience, as the doctor kept asking questions that made it clear she wasn't listening to what I was telling her. I'm no medical professional, but it feels like visits go smoother when the medical professional understands why they're happening in the first place. Anyway, our internet went out after that, but our crack IT squad (i.e. BDH and Little Buddha) worked hard to... Continue reading
