Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Tuesday to you all. The sun is shining bright and early this morning, and it sounds like it's going to be another lovely day. BDH and Little Buddha say the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out a little Clutter. In case you were wondering, it's no dream. Chris Sale really is with the Boston Red Sox, and he threw his first round of batting practice yesterday. Granted, pitchers and catchers only reported a week ago, but we're already anxious to see the tall lefty... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy President's Day to you all. How are you? I'm still thinking about two dreams I had last night which both involved staff turnover. One took place on a TV show, and the other was located at a former employer of mine. The details are getting fuzzy now, but I still remember someone on the show saying, "No sooner are you cast on this program, then you're aware that the countdown is on to your departure." Larger life metaphor or simply the result of drinking tea before bedtime? Don't know. What I do know... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, make yourself comfortable. How are you? Everything is fine on this end at the moment. We can almost go until 6:00 at night without turning on the lights around here, and that's doing wonders for my internal clock. You know what else does wonders? Coffee. We've got a fresh pot ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Sunday Clutter. Does anyone here see any chance of Rusney Castillo and Allen Craig making an impact on this year's Boston Red Sox team? Trades would be... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? It sounds like it's supposed to be gorgeous outside today. I understand that 45 degrees isn't "normal" for February, but it's hard to complain if it brings the snow down a few feet in the back yard. Anyway, other than that, there's not too much to report here at the moment. BDH and Little Buddha say that the coffee's ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Saturday Clutter. Boston Red Sox catcher Blake Swihart is currently having problems throwing the ball back to the pitcher. Kind... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back. Come on in. How are you? Today got off to a slightly challenging start here. First off, I had something of a stress dream about being unprepared for a meeting with New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft. When I woke up, it still took about five minutes to confirm that said meeting never existed, and that it's been years since I've talked to any of the people who supposedly arranged it. Then, we had some Internet connection issues here last night that seemed to be continuing this morning. It was hard not to panic that we... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Can we take a break from the snow for a little while? There's nowhere left to put it here right now! Everything that was on the north side of the roof came crashing down last night. It really sounded like a brief earthquake around here. I think it's supposed to be close to 50 degrees at some point this weekend. Obviously that's not a normal temperature for February, but right now, I don't care. Anyway, the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We had a lovely birthday yesterday, thank you very much. BDH heard from about 150 of his closest friends, which made him smile even more than usual, and Little Buddha bought him a new book, so he was really pleased. We didn't do anything too crazy, but it was just an all-around nice day. Now, it's time to get back to work. The coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday Clutter. Boston Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi said he was briefly concerned that... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? We're all good on this end, except one of us could maybe use a masseuse after yesterday's shoveling. Of course the plow came after I had already done most of the work. Oh well. We're celebrating birthdays today, as BDH is now six years old! I have no idea how many "BDH years" that converts to, but hopefully he'll be around for a long time to come. He stays in great shape, so that should work out. Yours truly also completed another year around the sun, so... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Everything is fine on this end at the moment. I'm just engaged in some hardcore procrastination as I think about all of the shoveling that has to be done today. There was a somewhat loud rumbling here last night as the house shook for a few seconds. It wasn't an earthquake, just the snow falling off the roof and crashing onto the driveway. I assume the plow guy will be around at some point today to take care of that mess, because otherwise, I might be here... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Who's ready for some more snow? Oy, Don't worry, though. I did a food shopping yesterday, so we'll be fine if we're stuck inside together for the next few days. Of course, the grocery list included coffee (silly question.) There's a fresh pot ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Sunday Clutter before the next storm arrives. There may be 300 feet of snow coming in the next 24 hours, but that's okay, because spring training starts tomorrow!!! Pitchers and catchers report on Monday, work out on... Read more →
