Belknap County Superior Court will assemble a new jury pool on October 30, 2017.  We’ll be there to distribute some helpful information on the juror’s rights.  We’ll be handing out flyers starting at 8:30.

We’ve been out regularly, every other week for each pool, for longer than I can recall. We need to restock on flyers. If you’d like to contribute to the effort we’ll be happy to accept a small donation. Bitcoin let’s you send funds with a minor transaction fee. Well that was the idea of Bitcoin. Now SegWit bitcoin cost $2-3 in fees, screw that.

Few Reasons To Leave The Lakes Region

Let’s face it, we have all we need here in the lakes region. On Saturday, Oct 14th a few of us will take a short trip down to Manchester to support a very worthy cause.

Tammy Simmons is running for the board of aldermen in Manchester. I’m not a big fan of politics; for those that step up it’s a grind. If you are fortunate enough to have avoided the action on the inside, you have missed the reason you should support Tammy. You have missed seeing Tammy deliver the message of liberty to rooms full of statist; clearly, boldly, and passionately saying that which you scream at your news feed. You may be heard by your family and friends; Tammy pushes the message to those who would rather not hear the truth.

Please consider joining us for a few hours, I promise your investment of your valuable time will be well spent. Tammy is willing to do the hard work that comes after the election. The return on your investment is the delivery of the liberty message inside city hall. If you can’t make it Saturday, please share and look for other opportunities to help.

If you can make it, register at Ward 10 Door Knocking, or shoot an e-mail to electtammysimmons@gmail.com

The Belknap County commission continues to claim they do not have enough money to run the county and are asking for a supplemental appropriation. If your taxes are not high enough, stay home. If you think you’re already paying enough, come out and show your support for the representatives that are taking the heat for actually trying to limit government.

Belmont Curiosity

I moved to Belmont in the spring of 2012 when I bought a piece of land here. Belmont is mostly a bedroom community at the crossroads of RT 106 and RT 140 located just south of Laconia.

Rt106MillionAlong the side of RT 106, set back just a bit off the road, is an old building that you could drive past a hundred times and not take notice. It looks like a windowless steel warehouse.

The curious thing about this old building is the faded and weather worn lettering on the side. It reads: MILLION DOLLAR SHOW.

MILLION DOLLAR SHOW
MILLION DOLLAR SHOW

I’ve had a story in my mind about what this building housed back in the day and I’ve always meant to ask the locals about it. And I finally remembered to ask at the town election recently.

In my mind the story was that it was a strip club or Burlesque show; isn’t that obvious? I got a little chuckle from the selectman as he explained, no it was a museum of armor and arms.

Because it existed prior to the internet age there isn’t a lot of information about the place. I did find a couple of references.

Schuller family exhibited it in 'The Million Dollar Show.'

At the Glenbow Museum site is this photo of the owners.

A bit more of the history was found at Jan’s Antiques.com

The Glenbow Museum’s extensive collection of militaria and European decorative art was assembled by Lucie and Joachim Schuller. The Schullers used their personal collection of family heirlooms, augmented by auction and private purchases, to build a first-rate collection during the first half of the 20th century. In the early 1950’s, their collecting culminated in the opening of the Schuller Museum of Art and Chivalry, first near Belmont, and later near Laconia, New Hampshire. The Schullers marketed the collection as “The Million Dollar Show”, and advertised “The Largest Collection of Japanese Armour on Exhibition in the World”. Wishing to preserve their life’s work of collecting, they sold the collection to the Riveredge Foundation in 1973 and the museum was moved to Calgary.

Since the museum closed down it has been serving as a warehouse and the selectman thought it might soon be up for sale. It makes me wonder if it wouldn’t be the perfect home for the Church of the Sword.
