Since our move to Alton, NH in December, many doors have been opened to us. Two churches in the area have offered their building for our use, and we have taken them up on their generous offers, and conducted events at both churches. Our monthly column in the weekly paper ‘The Weirs Times” has made us many new friends. Recently, while running a few errands, a lady saw me coming out of or van, and thanked me for the article I did about Independence Day.

We are averaging 5,000 views per month and 40 new subscribers/ Our most popular video is remains “The Battle of Lexington Reenactment.” One of our videos an interview with Jim Perloff about Covid 19 or the Chinese Communist Party Virus was taken down, and we were given a warning.
