Worth’s Upside Down Show and the PEG channels in Wales.

"DVD-with-Dave-Wort’s-Upside-Down-Show." Little do residents of Holland know how much better the political climate and sense of community in the neighboring town of Wales is.

Wales has a public access channel, Channel 5. Everybody has the right to request airtime on Channel 5, the Public Access Channel of the PEG Channels. Requests are granted on a “first come first serve” basis. The Holland Blog was on Dave Worth‘s Upside Down Show on February 5, 2010.

Find out how the Board of Selectmen tried to censor the show and why Holland does not have a Public Access Channel, or watch the unedited video of the entire Show, read more»

Members of the Holland selectboard tried to bully members of the selectboard of Wales.

Different people informed me that members of the Holland Board of Selectmen tried to bully the selectboard of Wales into censoring Dave Worth’s Upside Down Show.
I introduced the Holland Blog to the viewers of the Upside Down Show last Friday and talked about Johnson Landgate and other dark secrets about members of the Holland selectboard.
Dave’s show is repeated three times every day on the Charter cable network in Wales and Brimfield until tonight when Dave will air his new show.
Surprised about the numerous call-ins, Dave Worth announced that he would invite me back to be a guest again soon. Dave’s announcement must have scared some officials in Holland.
I will post the show here on the Holland Blog. I need to solve a technical problem first which has to do with installing a streaming server that can handle a video that is 110 minutes long. I intend to post the video in its un-edited entire length.
According to Google Analytics, Johnson Landgate is drawing a lot of attention, just yesterdeay the report about Johnson Landgate has been viewed 13 times by 12 unique visitors. Every visitor spent an average of 16:34 minutes reading the report! (See line number 6 in the Google report). The report shows partial URL’s; for instance on line 70 you will find:
The complete URL would read like this:
This is the URL for the piece, “Homes built by the Johnson's, illegal!”
Yesterday 172 readers viewed 462 pages and spent a total of 19 hours and 7 minutes reading the Holland Blog.

This is a picture taken at 18:28 hours from the bridge that goes over Interstate 84 at Exit 74 looking westbound towards Hartford, CT.

Notice that there is hardly any traffic going westbound...
