Greetings, friends! Thank you for joining us on this fine Friday to take a look back at our YouTube Highlights for the week.

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #42

Hi everyone! Thanks for joining us today, as it’s time for some more YouTube Highlights! But before we get to all the fun (and oh, there is plenty!), we have a somber matter to discuss concerning our channel.
