Today is June 5, 2021. We have been listening to our friends and we are changing over to Shopify. Our website will be a lot easier to understand, navigate and purchase from. As we sat listening and looking at the update last Friday, we wondered why we had not done this sooner. I believe it will be up and running in about two more weeks.
We are going to dedicate this website to our doomsday information.
