We want to thank everyone who has come by to support us and those that have become regulars, as y’all were the most important part to our family."

Another casualty of Governor Northam's lockdown.

Sad. I hope those people can find work.


So we blame the Governor for this? Either you believe there's a pandemic or you don't. It seems to be worldwide and the countries where its been taken seriously and where the population is willing to make the sacrifices necessary to stop the spread, its less of a problem. Then there are the Angry Bobs of the world who'd rather blame the Governor even if he is doing what common sense would dictate. I hate to see any business vanish. Club Eclipse isn't the first and won't be the last. We could have been better prepared as a nation and we could have responded better, but that wasn't good for the orange blob's ratings. If you're going to blame anyone, blame him. That's where the buck stops.


The Northam family had 84 slaves and he is a abortion doctor. Not a good choice.
