  1. Well, I haven't posted here in a while, now is a good a time as any. I have my display up and running at 83 Franklin St, in Stoneham, MA. I was just featured in the local news paper, The Stoneham Sun, too. I have the article posted to my website.
  2. I love this idea! My yard is surrounded by fences, I going to have to consider this one. Thanks!
  3. We still have get together's of that sort in the ham radio world. Though they aren't called "Coffee Breaks", several of the ham radio clubs in the area have once a week breakfast or lunches where anyone is invited to join. I've gone to a few of those. I'd love to see a group of local decorators get together though.
  4. Yep, that's what I do. In fact, I have the cameras connected to a computer on my network, so I can see the feeds from any computer in the house. I usually have the desktop configured as in the screen shot below. This way I can see all my cameras while using the web or other function. Hopefully by next year, I'll have all cameras functional.
  5. I'm using it over here in Stoneham Mass. I think this is my third or fourth year using your song. I only have 27 thousand twinkling lights though, I have a ways to go.
  6. I'm looking for a simple 5-point star. Something about 3 feet across. I've looked around all over the place here, Lowes, Home Depot, Target, etc. and no one seems to carry them. I found a 32" star online, but the company wants $30 plus $7 to ship, which seems ridiculous considering it's not even LEDs. So does anyone know where I could find one, or might have one for sale? Otherwise, I'm going to have to see if I can quickly build one myself next week. Thanks! [url="http://www.holidaylandscapes.com"]
  7. I too am just coming out of hibernation, and wanted to also welcome you to the wonderful hobby of ham radio from WO1VES. I'm deep in planning both my Christmas display and my Halloween display.
  8. As someone living on the brink of bankruptcy myself, I can't help out much, but this is a worthy cause, so I'm in for $10. Any item. Merry Christmas!
  9. I did a quick search on Google, and found the story you are looking for on the Planet Christmas Showing Off Pages. http://www.planetchristmas.com/ShowingOff2005Page2.htm It's about a quarter of the way down. Here is the text from it: This is our new home in Arlington, Texas. The strand of C9 bulbs around the front door has
  10. My display stays up and running through New Years Day. I consider NYD to be the end of the holiday season, so I keep it on that extra day. I'll start taking it down on January 2nd. How fast I take it down really depends on the weather this year, and how well my sick cat is doing.
  11. It was still 50% off at my local CVS today. Oh well.
  12. I have two running on my display this year. Though they only update once every three seconds. http://www.holidaylandscapes.com Look on the right side of the screen for Holiday Landscapes TV.

  14. I know how you feel. I'm worried about tomorrows storm myself. I too had to unbury my inflatables yesterday. The only parts of my display you can't see right now are my strobes and my brook the deer are drinking out of. I guess there is a good thing about not getting much traffic at my display, I don't have to worry about parking. Good luck!
  15. I have 8 songs in my show this year. It is all carefully trimmed to run 30 minutes, so I can loop it on the half hour.
