  1. A Google search turned up these http://www.flexpvc.com/cart/agora.cgi?product=PVC-5-ways-side-outlet-Cross http://www.aquaticeco.com/subcategories/1928/PVC-Cage-Fittings-5-Way-Cross http://www.greenhousemegastore.com/PVC-Fitting-5-Way-Connector/productinfo/SN-5WY/ http://www.littlegreenhouse.com/accessory/pvc.shtml http://www.snapclamp.com/prices.htm
  2. Chuck Smith You won't have to hide in the bushes anymore with a set up like this. Mark
  3. I would like to buy a video security setup and I've searched the posts, and maybe I missed it somewhere but I've read to many that say "This looks like a good price but I don't own one" or "buy a gun and stay up all night" or "hide in the bushes" or "buy the good camera and not the cheap one" I could go on and on Who uses security cameras? What do you use? What do you like/dislike about your setup? What specific video camera setup would you recommend? I don't want a cheap system or dummy cameras but I don't want to break the bank either. I'm sure somebody out here in P
  4. Yesterday I bought 7 green and 1 red flood lights for .74 cents each. I also picked up 18 boxes of commercial 150 count white lights for $1.00 per box., not sure what I'll use them:confused: for but they looked lonely on the shelf, they went to a good home. I passed on several tree stands and tree skirts. Mark
  5. I'll try my pictures again I have a few more if you like these Mark [ATTACH]29080[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]29081[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]29082[/ATTACH]
  6. I'm planning on making one myself, matter of fact I just receive my rope light today Manning Christmas web site show his http://www.manningchristmas.com.au/?page=gallery&id=1 Christmas Displays has another but I think it's the same one? http://www.christmasdisplays.net/projects/wireframetrain.php Here's a few pictures I took at Disney World, Hollywood Studios Oct 2009 See my post below for pictures Mark
  7. Have you looked into the fiberglass driveway markers? Not sure if they will work but I thought I would throw that out there. The most common are 4' tall but there only 1/4' round I know they make them taller and they do come in a larger diameter but I haven't hung any lights on them so I wouldn't know if there strong enough, there supose to be tough enough to be ran over by a car and spring back up. I know Menards sells them and I think Lowes does to, I haven't seen any at our Home Depot. Mark
  8. I've only been here a couple of months, lurking for a year, I've learned alot, this really is a great group of people. And like they said don't take Chuck serious He's the guy on the right Mark
  9. I see you made some digital fireworks heads, I ran across a post you did. Do you have any pictures or video's of them in action. I'm thinking of making some. Thanks Mark [email protected]charter.net

  10. Shaun It wouldn't hurt to give them a call. The music they used is still fresh in their minds, meaning it takes alot of practice for them to hit every note correctly. My daughters been playing for 8 years and I have to brag alittle she's pretty good but when they start a new song she will on ocasion miss a note or two. Mark
  11. Most High School band rooms are set up to record music, or should I say your larger more modern schools are. I know in our High School there usually not ready to perform till about a week before the Christmas concert which is usually the first part of Dec. so you would probally have to burn the midnight oil to sequence your lights:eek: I guess the upside is that you would have it for years down the road. Just my 2 cent Mark
  12. I was thinking about doing that next year. My daughters a senior this year and when we were at her Christmas band concert this year I found myself tapping my foot, imaging how that song would look with my display (could add that one to the top 10 signs your a Christmas light addict) I'm on the school board here so I don't think it would be any problem getting a recording, Being on the board doesn't give me any pull, I don't think I could request a special song, so I guess I would have to just pick from one of their songs they play next year. They usually play medleys, some parts of the
