Hi folks, Welcome back. How are things on your end? No luck at the bookstore yesterday, which was a little disappointing. However, BDH and Little Buddha are already looking out the window and listening to the birds, so they seem fine. I might join them for a bit when we're done here, and see if that helps my headache. Fortunately, today's errands should be pretty low-key. First, let's check out the headlines. 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 Wednesday Clutter. It's devastating to... Continue reading

Hi folks, How are you? Week off to a good start so far? Yesterday was pretty productive, despite the lack of sleep. I ended up taking a quick power nap in the afternoon, which helped. Also enjoyed some quality garden time, which is always a nice way to end the day. Slept a bit better last night, but another nap is still a possibility. Today's big errand is of course the weekly trip to check out the new releases at the local bookstore. I'd love to find something for BDH and Little Buddha to read, because it seems like it's...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How was the rest of your weekend? As expected, we spent most of yesterday just trying to stay cool. It wasn't the most productive day, but that's fine. There was a nice little bit of rain in the evening, so the garden is happy. The problem now is that I feel like I slept for about 10 minutes for whatever reason last night, so the new week is off to a rough start. BDH and Little Buddha said they'd help me prioritize today's errands, and that we could always schedule a nap later if needed. (Spoiler:... Continue reading

Hi folks, How are you? Weekend going okay so far? I took care of a few errands yesterday and then had some quality garden time, once things cooled off to about 90 degrees and 90% humidity. There may have been some mild heat exhaustion involved by the end of the day, but it was worth it. BDH and Little Buddha say today's weather is supposed to be just as challenging, only it includes thunderstorms this afternoon. Pretty sure we'll just make this a quiet day inside and focus on staying cool. Maybe there will be a good movie to watch... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. Did this week go by quickly, or was it just us? Is any case, what's on tap for the weekend? The #1 goal on this end is to simply stay cool, since the forecast calls for temps in the mid-upper 90's with high humidity. Yikes. I might have to save garden time for the end of the day when it cools off to 9o degrees. Other than that, it should be pretty quiet around here. Now, let's check out today's headlines. BDH and Little Buddha say the coffee is... Continue reading

Hi everyone, How are you? It's pretty gloomy outside at the moment. The birds are chirping up a storm, and BDH and Little Buddha are listening to every note. BDH thinks the birds are saying it won't actually rain that much today. Little Buddha thinks they may be discussing their weekend plans. We'll work that out later, but for now, let's take a look at the headlines. The guys made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Thursday Clutter. Yet another poll shows that a majority of Americans oppose overturning Roe v.... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Sorry we're running a little behind today. I stayed at Fenway Park until the final out of the Red Sox game last night, which meant getting to bed well past my bedtime. BDH and Little Buddha said I should just sleep in a bit, rather than be a zombie all day today. I know better than to argue with the two of them. However, we're all here and ready to get to work. The guys made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Wednesday Clutter.... Continue reading

Hi everyone, How are you? Our crew is doing fine, thank you for asking. We've got our fingers crossed that I can find a new release at the bookstore today. Spent a good portion of yesterday waiting for the potentially-severe thunderstorms to arrive. My primary concern was that I didn't want to get caught driving back from Dad Clutter's house in the middle of it, because that road is a real drag when the weather isn't great. The rain finally arrived around 7:00 in the evening. It was nothing real serious - just a good soaking. It took out a... Continue reading

Hi folks, How are you? Did you enjoy the rest of your weekend? I took care of everything on yesterday's to-do list. After that, most of the afternoon was spent waiting to see if it would ever start raining, because the garden definitely needed some water. We finally got some extended showers late in the day, so the plants should be pleased. Today's forecast calls for a chance of severe thunderstorms later this afternoon. Fingers crossed I don't get caught in them, but in the meantime, let's get to work. BDH and Little Buddha say the coffee is ready, so... Continue reading

What a crazy stretch this has been for Doctor Who fans. First, we get the news that Ncuti Gatwa will be the new Doctor, which is exciting all by itself. However, it appears that Gatwa will not be the next Doctor, because the BBC just confirmed that David Tennant and Catherine Tate are returning to Doctor Who to celebrate the show's 60th anniversary in 2023. To that, we say - WHAT? This reunion of the 10th Doctor and Donna Noble has been rumored for a while, and it turns out the Internet got this one right. Of course, the details... Continue reading

Hi everyone, How are you? Weekend going okay so far? Yesterday was really productive, even though we hit a high of 91 degrees. I might have spent a little too much time in the sun, because I went through about two gallons of water last night. However, it was worth it, because the garden is off to a great start. Now we just need some rain. Today's forecast originally called for precipitation to begin at 2:00 this morning, and now we're talking about "a possibility of showers" in the afternoon. Might have to break out the hose later if this... Continue reading

Doctor Stephen Strange has been busy the last few years. He helped the Avengers save the universe from Thanos, and then he and Spider-Man got into a little trouble with the multiverse last year. Now the sorcerer is back with his first solo adventure since 2016, with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Star Benedict Cumberbatch can do little wrong around here, but this movie is a disappointing mess. Disclaimer: We'll do our best to keep this review spoiler-free. Plot: The movie finds Doctor Strange having to save a mysterious girl named America Chavez, who is currently being chased... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday the 13th to you all. What's on tap for the weekend? I've got the usual errands, and I'm hoping to also get some garden time tomorrow, because the forecast calls for rain on Sunday. Speaking of the to-do list, May has gotten off to a so-so start, so I'm considering shaking things up a bit, putting today's list to the side, and going to the movies instead. BDH and Little Buddha think that's a great idea, so we'll see. In the meantime, let's check out the headlines. The guys made coffee, so... Continue reading

Hi everyone, How are you? Our crew is doing fine at the moment. Could have used a little more sleep last night, but other than that, we're good to go. Today's to-do list is relatively short, so BDH and Little Buddha have already pointed out that an afternoon nap is a possibility if needed. I like how those two think. The guys are eager to check out the headlines, so let's get to work. The coffee is ready, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Thursday Clutter. President Biden acknowledged yesterday that the... Continue reading

Hi everyone, How are you? Week going okay so far? I didn't have any luck at the bookstore yesterday, which was a little disappointing. BDH and Little Buddha say it's fine, they'll just find something to watch on TV, or maybe reread an old book until we find a new option. Oh, I think there are new "One Chicago" shows tonight. Of course, if nothing else, the guys are happy to stare out the window and watch/listen to the birds for hours at a time. They always find something that makes them smile. We should all be like them. Now,... Continue reading

Hi everyone, How are you? The birds are chirping up a storm this morning, and BDH and Little Buddha are loving every bit of it. BDH thinks the lead bird is giving the weather forecast, and he says it calls for a generally sunny day with highs in the mid-60's this afternoon. Works for me. Today's to-do list is pretty long again, so at least it will be nice outside while I run these errands. Of course, said tasks include the weekly trip to the bookstore to check out the new releases. Fingers crossed I can find something good for... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Monday to you all. I hope you had a good weekend. Things were a little chaotic here, and Mother's Day hit harder than usual, so that wasn't fun. I enjoyed some quality garden time yesterday afternoon though, so that was relaxing. Today's to-do list is long, but BDH and Little Buddha say they'll help me stay focused to power through it. The guys also pointed out that we can always stop to take a break to listen to the birds if needed. Those two are the best. Now, let's take a look at... Continue reading

This was supposed to be a quiet day - enjoy some coffee, run a couple of errands, nothing crazy. That was the plan. However, those plans changed in a hurry with the announcement that Ncuti Gatwa will be Jodie Whittaker's successor on Doctor Who! After getting over the shock that this huge reveal came without any warning, we had just one question: Who is Ncuti Gatwa? We've since been informed that Gatwa stars in the Netflix show Sex Education. The unanimous response we've gotten from everyone who has seen him perform boils down to this: "Oh my god, he's fantastic!... Continue reading

Hi folks, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. What's on tap for the weekend? I'm hoping to get some time in the garden, and there might also be a bike ride on the schedule. Of course, Sunday is Mother's Day. I'm not sure what our plans are for that right now, so it's possible our crew will be out of the office until Monday, but we're going to play it by ear. Now, let's sort through the headlines. BDH and Little Buddha made a fresh pot of coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's... Continue reading

Hi everyone, How are you? Any big plans for Cinco de Mayo? If you do go out tonight, just remember to celebrate responsibly. We expect you all to be back here in one piece tomorrow. Yesterday went as planned - I took care of all of the mandatory items on the to-do list, our crew took an extended nap after that, and then we watched the Red Sox game. I feel much better physically now, so here's to making this a productive day. Of course, that starts by sorting through the headlines with all of you fine folks. BDH and... Continue reading

Hi folks, How are you? Yesterday was a bit of a mess on this end. First, there was no luck with this week's new releases at the bookstore. After that, I got into a fight with an anti-vaxxer I know, which was ugly. Can't imagine we'll be talking to each other again anytime soon, but that's probably just as well. That was followed up by a nightmare last night which wrecked my sleep, so we'll see how today goes. BDH and Little Buddha suggest we look at the to-do list, take care of anything which is mandatory for today, and... Continue reading

Hi folks, Welcome back. How are you? I'm still moving a little slowly after all of the garden work this past weekend, but I should be back to full speed by tomorrow. We've had a lovely rain since last night, and the garden looks terrific. (I'd like to thank the garden gods for holding off on the rain until I finished spreading the compost.) BDH and Little Buddha say it should clear up a bit later this morning. That will be just in time for me to head to the bookstore to check out this week's new releases. First, let's...

Hi folks, How are you? Sorry we missed you yesterday. The annual compost delivery arrived, and that's always an adventure. I got most of it done on Saturday. There was a little left over on Sunday, so I had to take care of that, then go right through the to-do list, and then collapse in a heap. It's a hell of a workout, but the payoff is always worth it, because the garden looks terrific. I was hoping to play in the dirt this afternoon, but BDH and Little Buddha say it's supposed to rain, so we'll see. Anyway, let's... Continue reading

Hi folks, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! What's on tap for the weekend? Our annual compost delivery arrives tomorrow afternoon, so I need to do some quality stretching today. I've got the whole weekend to finish spreading it, and I've gotten better at pacing myself, but it's still the most challenging workout of the year. Totally worth it though, because the garden always looks terrific when I'm done. (Note to self: Stock up on Advil today.) BDH and Little Buddha plan to alternate between cheering me on and listening to the chirping birds, so they're excited.... Continue reading

Hi folks, Welcome back! How are you? BDH, Little Buddha, and I were just listening to the wind howl outside. It started last night, and apparently it's not going to stop until later this evening. I don't think it will have much of an impact on today's to-do list, though. One of my biggest tasks is to re-pot another plant. I did two more yesterday, and they're both decompressing in their new spaces. The guys said they'd be happy to keep an eye on all of them today and encourage them to be healthy and happy. That works, because really,... Continue reading
