Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I hope your week is off to a good start so far. BDH and Little Buddha are excited because it's almost time for the weekly trip to check out the new releases at the bookstore. Our crew is almost done with the second of three books on their nightstand, so I have a little more time to find something new for them to read, but it would be great to get it today. There are also a few other errands on the to-do list, and the guys tell me it will be in... Continue reading

The United States struggles with few issues as much as the undying prevalence of racism in this country. Discrimination shows its ugly face daily in every aspect of American life, from police brutality, to unequal employment and education opportunities, to the racial hostility that put Donald Trump in the White House as a backlash to eight years of Barack Obama in the Oval Office. "Black Lives Matter" protests dominate the headlines because this country consistently shows that we collectively don't believe it. As debates about civil rights rage on, it would be helpful for many members of our society to... Continue reading

Hi everyone, How are you? We're all doing well at the moment. I had my first professional haircut in about 15 months yesterday, which was a treat. My home haircuts were fine for a pandemic. I mean, no one was going to know if I made a mistake (not that such a thing ever happened.) However, I had to get cleaned up, now that I can actually meet up with people I know. BDH and Little Buddha just got the weather forecast from the chirping birds. They say it's going to be a lovely day with highs in the mid... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? This has been a terrific weekend so far. I celebrated being fully vaccinated by catching up with a dear friend and watching the Boston Red Sox live at Fenway Park on Friday night. We went out for dinner first, and that was one of the best meals I've had in ages. I've got to say, I wouldn't mind if the Red Sox kept the coronavirus protocols in place all year. We had plenty of space, a clear view of everything, and it was much easier to get out of Fenway once the game... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. It's a terrific Friday here, because yours truly is officially fully vaccinated! What a relief. Going to the crowded grocery store now sounds like a regular errand again, rather than a potential health hazard, and I can start talking to friends about making plans. Not going to waste any time on that front. A dear friend I haven't seen in almost two years and I are going to tonight's Boston Red Sox game. Can't wait. Just can't wait. BDH and Little Buddha are also excited. They've tried not to... Continue reading

Hi everyone, How are you? Sorry it's a little chilly in here right now. BDH and Little Buddha say it's supposed to warm up soon. My poor sleep finally caught up with me yesterday. The guys eventually decided an emergency nap was required, because I was such a mess. No argument here. Went back to bed at the usual time last night, and now I finally feel better. The really exciting news is that I'll be fully vaccinated as of tomorrow, so it will be time to start catching up on some hugs! However, that's tomorrow, and we've got headlines... Continue reading

Hi everyone, How are you? Week going okay so far? Yesterday was a grind, but it was a productive grind. I was moving slowly all day because of poor sleep, but I methodically crossed off every single item on the to-do list, about 10 of them in all. That was a nice sense of accomplishment. BDH and Little Buddha cheered me on the entire way, and they weren't even annoyed when I couldn't find anything in the new releases section at the bookstore for them to read. They're such a great cheering squad. Of course, there's a brand new list... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I don't know what's going on, but my sleep is off again. I'm out like a light for a few hours, there's some disruption in the middle of the night, and then today I woke up about an hour before my alarm. That's not fun. BDH and Little Buddha tell me to just focus on one task at a time today, and they think everything will work out fine. Of course, the priority is to make it to the bookstore to check out the new releases for them at some point. The guys... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We hope you had a good weekend. I kept myself busy yesterday with the first bike ride of the year, which was fantastic, and then some gardening, which was also a treat. I was hoping all of that would result in a good night's sleep, but no such luck. Not sure what happened there. This week is off to a rainy start, but that's okay, because it's good for the plants. BDH and Little Buddha say it's supposed to stop later this morning. Got a few errands to take care of on today's... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Our crew would like to wish a happy Mother's Day to all of the fantastic moms out there. Today can be challenging for a variety of reasons, so if this is a hard day for you, we hope you're taking care of yourself. I miss Mom Clutter, but I'm looking forward to the first bike ride of the year after we finish up here. There will be some gardening afterwards, so that's my self-treat. BDH and Little Buddha say the weather should be perfect for all of that, so here's to a hopefully... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! I don't know why this week seemed so long, but it's finally coming to a close. Any big plans for the weekend? It will probably be pretty quiet on this end, which is fine. I am hoping to get in my first bike ride of the year, so that should be fun, especially now that the bike is fresh from the repair shop. Mother's Day is around the corner, but we'll discuss that on Sunday. BDH and Little Buddha have been listening to the birds chirping away this morning.... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Is it just me, or has this been a long week? Really feels like it should already be Friday. My service call finally happened yesterday morning, so at least I got that out of the way. BDH and Little Buddha are enjoying their new book, so that's good. The guys say today is supposed to be sunny with highs in the 50-60's. I'll take that. Plus, I'm off to the gym when we're done here, so all in all, this is shaping up to be a good day, I guess. Of course, there's also the fun... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I got BDH and Little Buddha a new book yesterday, so that was good. They weren't really feeling the one they were reading, so they're going to put that one down and check this one out instead for a little while. Sometimes you just have to shake things up a bit, you know? My case of the Mondays turned into a case of the Tuesdays when a company blew me off on a service call yesterday afternoon. The person later tried to claim they called me in the morning to let me know... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, folks! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were just checking out the weather forecast. It was supposed to rain for a good part of today at one point, but now it will apparently just be cloudy instead. We got some rain overnight though, so the garden should be happy. I did moderately well dealing with yesterday's to-do list, but I had a mild case of the Mondays, so we'll try that again later. Of course there will be a trip to the bookstore to check out the new releases for the guys, so they're excited... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Still moving a little slowly here this morning, but all of the compost has been spread, and the garden looks terrific. BDH and Little Buddha say we should get some rain tonight/tomorrow morning, and that would be perfect. Today's to-do list is pretty long, but it's mostly catching up on phone calls and emails that I've been procrastinating about, so that should be fine. Just one more Advil, and I'll be good to go. The guys made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Monday... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? It's been a busy weekend. I got my second vaccine shot on Friday, which was exciting. No major side effects apart from a sore shoulder, but that's already starting to improve. Also, I picked my bike from the repair shop yesterday about three weeks earlier than they originally told me it would take. That's how you set expectations, friends. Finally, the compost for the garden arrived yesterday afternoon. I order enough compost each year to cover everything about 2 1/3 times. Things always start to hurt around the 1 1/2 mark, and that's... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. It's an exciting day at Clutter Headquarters, because I'm off to get my second vaccination shot once we're done here! I'm so pleased that it's finally here, and I can start thinking about seeing some familiar faces again in the weeks and months ahead. BDH and Little Buddha are also happy. They love me to pieces, but I don't think they'll object to me leaving the office a little more often. The garden compost arrives tomorrow, so here's hoping I don't have any real side effects. Otherwise, I guess... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Our crew is doing well. The mechanic took 90 minutes longer than expected to take care of the car yesterday, which started making me wonder if there was a new problem. Turns out they just misjudged how long it would take them to give me new tires, so we're back in business. Today will probably be a pretty quiet day around Clutter Headquarters. The guys can read while I take care of a couple of small issues, but we're mostly going to take it easy and count the hours until my second vaccine... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I struck out with new releases at the bookstore yesterday, but that's no big deal. Like we discussed yesterday, it will take our crew a while to get through their current book. Looks like we have a rainy couple of days ahead of us. That's fine. It's good for the garden, and then it should stop for a couple of days, which gives me a window to deal with the compost pile. That reminds me, I should make sure we have Advil. The big item on today's to-do list is bringing in the... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Sorry we missed you yesterday, but we finally finished moving Dad Clutter's office, by which I mean, we watched the movers take care of everything. Can't say I love moving as a general experience, but this was the friendliest crew I've ever worked with, and they did a terrific job. It's great to finish that project, because now it means I have more time for the garden on Mondays! BDH and Little Buddha still have a long way to go with their new book, so I'm not sure we'll be making a trip... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We hope you're having a good weekend so far. No complaints on this end. I spent a couple of hours in the garden yesterday, which is always fun. There's still more to be done before the compost arrives next weekend, but things are off to a good start. BDH and Little Buddha tell me the birds say there's a chance of rain this morning and then again sometime in the early afternoon. I hope it happens - the plants could use a little water. Plus, I'm moving pretty slowly, so it would be... Continue reading

As Mammoth WVH fans continue to eagerly wait for the band's first album to come out on June 11, Wolf Van Halen just released a video for the next single, called "Feel." It's another hard rock winner for the talented musician who continues to demonstrate his own musical identity outside of his legendary family. The other songs we've heard so far reminded us of Tool or Alter Bridge, but "Feel" brings a Mötley Crüe vibe to it with a slightly menacing tone combined with a catchy melody. It's a tight number and yet another reminder of Wolf's versatility, as he... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Not sure where this week went, but BDH and Little Buddha think it was a blur because we were so productive. Those guys always know just what to say. What's on tap for the weekend? Hoping to get in some more garden time, but other than that, nothing too crazy. Yesterday was exciting, because I went to the gym for the first time in about 14 months. I was a little nervous but figured I would take my chances, now that I've had my first vaccination shot. It was... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? It looks like April is still working through some issues. Yesterday was lovely. I opened some windows and put on a new pair of shorts. Now, all of the storm windows are back down, and I turned the heat back on to make sure the plants aren't too cold. Of course, BDH and Little Buddha are fine. They can handle just about any temperature, and the birds are still chirping this morning, which makes them happy. The guys tell me the birds are saying they'd like to hear our duo read their new...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I'm a little sore after working in the garden for the last couple of days, and it feels great. It's fun being back outside, getting some fresh air, and playing in the dirt, without having to worry about masks and social distancing for a little while. Things are off to a good start, although there's still some more work to be done before the compost arrives in 10 days. The big news is that I found a new book for BDH and Little Buddha yesterday! It's going to take them a while to... Continue reading
