Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I was just talking about today's schedule with BDH and Little Buddha. We've got two options, and without getting bogged down in the details, the first option makes more sense, but the second option appeals to me more for some reason. Maybe I'll figure out what to do after I have some coffee. Speaking of which, the guys just made a fresh pot, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday Clutter. Donald Trump says the coronavirus is under control, while the... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? It's Tuesday, and you know what that means - I'm off to look for a new book for BDH and Little Buddha after we're done here. They've got about 100 pages left in the one they're reading now, so I've still got a little bit of time, but hopefully I'll find something they'll think is interesting. As always, if you've got any recommendations, feel free to drop us a line at info@clearingouttheclutter.com. In the meantime, the guys made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Series 12 is down to the final two episode. The stakes are high, and we still have a million questions. Will any of them be answered in the first half of the two-part finale? Do we dare to dream? Let's jump in... Plot: The Doctor and friends travel far into the future to save the last of the human race from the Cybermen. However, there's clearly much more going on here than "just" a fight to save humanity, as the stage is set for the conclusion of Series 12. Observations (Warning: spoilers ahead) That's a great opening shot,... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We were just talking about February is going by quickly as usual. I think it's a combination of the excitement leading up to BDH's birthday, recovering from the party, and the fact that January goes by so insanely slowly, the next month races by in comparison. The days are literally getting brighter, and while gardening season is still a ways off, we at least start to get a slight sense of its pending arrival. Add it all together, and things are moving in the right direction. On top of all of that, BDH... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. Like I said on Friday, we're changing the programming schedule this weekend. BDH and Little Buddha really wanted to say hi today, and then I think we'll be off tomorrow and back on Monday. It looked like things might get off to a rocky start, because our Internet was out for a minute this morning. However, our crack IT staff got everything up and running again before you could say, "coffee." Speaking of which, the guys made you a fresh pot, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's...

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Any big plans for the weekend? Not sure what we're doing at the moment, but it might involve a programming change, so we should be here either tomorrow or Sunday. Either way, we'll be back on Monday. We'll figure that out later. In the meantime, let's take a look at today's headlines. BDH and Little Buddha just made a fresh pot of coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Clutter. Lawmakers were told last week by intelligence officials that Russia is... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? There's not really much here to report at the moment. I stayed focused on yesterday's to-do list (with the help of BDH and Little Buddha) and finished every errand, which felt good. We've got a quieter day on tap here today, but that's fine, because it means the guys will have some time for reading, and that always makes them happy. Let's check out the headlines. There's a fresh pot of coffee on the table, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Thursday Clutter. The focus... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? We were just reviewing today's to-do list, which is a little on the long side. BDH and Little Buddha always remind me to just focus on one task at a time. It sounds simple enough, but sometimes I get a touch overwhelmed and start jumping ahead four items on the list, which is not helpful. Thankfully, these two are here to help keep me on track. They also just made a fresh pot of coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I feel better after a pretty quiet Monday. BDH and Little Buddha spent most of the day reading, which made them happy, and I listened to them take turns. It looks like I better do some stretching after we're done here, because it's currently supposed to snow from 9-5, and then rain afterwards, so that could be a mess. At least the guys will be fine if I don't make it to the bookstore to check out new releases today. Anyway, there's a fresh pot of coffee on the counter, so grab yourself... Continue reading

(Before we jump into this week's show, let's take a minute to discuss the news that Doctor Who is expected to begin filming series 13 this fall. That likely means that we'll have to wait about 18 months for new adventures (not counting a holiday special.) That's depressing. What should we do to pass the time? Retroactively review a different series? Jump into some Big Finish stories? Drop us your suggestions at info@clearingouttheclutter.com.) Plot: We're into the final few episodes of series 12, and there are still a lot of unresolved questions on the table. This week sees the Doctor... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, make yourselves comfortable. I just finished cleaning up BDH's birthday party. It seems safe to say he had a good time. I don't know if I overdid it this weekend, but I think I might be coming down with something. (Don't worry, I'll stay over at this end of the room.) Fortunately, today's to-do list isn't too long, so hopefully I'll be able to nip it in the bud. BDH and Little Buddha said they'd read to me from their new book while I rest. They take such good care of me. However,... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How's your weekend going? We're still celebrating BDH's birthday here, and he's having a blast. He got a couple of books he can read with Little Buddha, so he's thrilled about that. He also got enough candy to last him for the rest of the month, which makes him happy to no end. I will have to keep an eye on that to make sure it's not all gone by Monday. In any case, it's been a fun party, and now you're back, which means the festivities continue. The guys...

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! In case you haven't heard, this is a big day here, because it's BDH's birthday! That's right, our little blue buddy came into our lives nine years ago today. He was brought by a friend, who to this day has no idea what an impact she had with her gift, and life at Clutter Headquarters has never been the same. Little Buddha has been with me for almost 30 years, but his grin got a little wider when BDH joined us, and there's nothing he likes better than hanging... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? It's kind of a dreary looking day out there. However, our crew is doing well at the moment. BDH is excited about his birthday tomorrow. We're still trying to figure out the best way to celebrate, but we'll figure it out. Other than that, we're just plugging away this week. Let's see what's going on in the news. The guys just made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Thursday Clutter. Donald Trump's increased assaults on the rule of law make it clear that any...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? We were just reviewing today's to-do list, which is full, but not too crazy. I took care of most of the ice piles on the driveway yesterday, just in time for new ones to form tomorrow, judging by the forecast. February's weather seems to have a mild attitude problem, but we'll get through it. In the meantime, we're staying focused on the important things, like the fact that BDH's birthday is in two days! That will be fun. Speaking of the soon-to-be birthday boy, he and Little... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We're pretty good at the moment. I dealt with most of the shoveling yesterday. The ice piles are still there, but they're smaller than they were, so I can at least drive over them for now. BDH and Little Buddha say it might snow and rain a little bit again today, so I may have to revisit that this afternoon. We'll see. In the meantime, there's plenty of news to cover, so let's get to work. The guys made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out... Continue reading

Hi everyone! We're heading down the final stretch of series 12 of Doctor Who, and there is just one episode left after this before the two-part finale. We've still got so many questions about "alt-Doctor," the return of the Master and Captain Jack Harkness, the destruction of Gallifrey (again), and the ongoing mystery of the Timeless Child. Will any of that be answered this week? How about this series? Let's discuss... Plot: The Doctor and her friends are being stalked by someone who is manipulating nightmares, and it turns out that some old-school villains are involved. Observations (Warning: spoilers ahead)...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Things are good here, although I have a little shoveling to do later today. It got away from me a bit in the past couple of days. There isn't a lot out there, but I think it's going to be heavy snow with a few ice hills, so that might be a little challenging. BDH and Little Buddha said they'll watch from the window and cheer me on, so I'm sure everything will be fine. (Also, before he comes back into the room, don't forget BDH's birthday...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? BDH, Little Buddha, and I were just commenting on how our windows shake more on windy days like this since they cut down the Clutter Tree. We miss the tree. However, we're thrilled you're here. How about we check out today's headlines? Sound like a plan? Sounds like a plan. The guys made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Saturday Clutter. Donald Trump's retribution against those who testified in his impeachment trial is underway: Trump fired EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Well, it's a freezing rain kind of Friday, but it is Friday, so that still counts. I stayed on top of the shoveling yesterday, which was good. However, a big pile of snow fell off the roof and onto the driveway last night, and now I think it might be a mountain of ice. BDH and Little Buddha say the temperatures should be just above freezing later this morning, so maybe that will help. In the meantime, let's see what's going on in the world. The guys made coffee,...

A few quick thoughts, now that it's finally time for voters to weigh in on the Democratic presidential primary: Of course removing Donald Trump from the White House, and stripping Mitch McConnell of his majority leader title, are the priorities this November. However, that's not enough. In fact, it's the bare minimum of what we should be trying to achieve with this election. While pre-2016 may seem like paradise compared to the present day, let's not drown our memories in whitewashed nostalgia. That government left many problems unaddressed or gave them halfhearted approaches at best, to the detriment of millions... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha are checking the latest weather forecast. I've got shoveling to do after we're done here, and the snow will turn to freezing rain at some point this morning, so that's going to make things extra messy. Hold on, the guys say it's supposed to shift to rain around 11:00. Got it. Well, that should be fun. I should probably stretch first. Anyway, let's check out today's headlines. There's a fresh pot of coffee on the table, 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. How are you? We're all a little down at the moment because the Boston Red Sox traded Mookie Betts. We'll get to that in more detail in a little bit, but it has us in a funk. I couldn't find a new book for BDH and Little Buddha yesterday, so I'm not sure how I'm going to cheer them up, but you being here definitely helps. We've got a fresh pot of coffee on the table, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday Clutter.... Continue reading

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I got about two more hours of sleep last night than the night before, so I'm feeling much better, thanks. Yesterday got off to a productive beginning, but we started running out of gas in the afternoon, and that was all she wrote. Today's to-do list is also pretty long, so it would be good if I could stay focused. BDH and Little Buddha just checked the weather forecast, and they say it will be cloudy, but the highs will be in the 40's. We can work... Continue reading

We're back! Don't know about all of you, but we've been thinking about "Fugitive of the Judoon" for a week. Doctor Who boss Chris Chibnall confirmed that the woman we're still calling "alt-Doctor" is legit, but her history remains a mystery. We still think that she, the new Master, the returning Captain Jack, and perhaps the upcoming lone Cyberman, are all from an alternate dimension. Some speculated on Twitter that #13 somehow landed in the other universe when she fell out of her TARDIS shortly after her regeneration. That would be wild, because it would mean that her "fam" are... Continue reading
