    I have always had a love and a passion for decorating as long as I can remember (I think i was around 7). My family always teased me when I was a kid because I always had this fascination with cords, plugs, and Christmas lights. They would say that I would be an engineer some day (I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a BS In Engineering). My dad would be the one to go out and decorate the house on thanksgiving day. I really wanted to help, but he would not let me. Told me that when I get my own house, I can do whatever I want. I don't think my dad ever saw what was coming so many years ago :)

  1. Pythagorean Theorem - a2 + b2 = c2. Spacing between strands depends on how big the circumferential of you base is. Last year i used a 9' diameter base, and the distance between strands was about 3"-4". PM me if you want more details.

    Mega Tree

    Just be careful with your .22. Those type of bulbs can have mercury inside.
  3. Funny, I've been living in orlando for 16yrs and have never been there. Sent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk 2
  4. I ditto their customer service. Two years ago in March we went up there for vacation and bought some ornaments and had them shipped back to our house in FL. The box was never opened until December when we went to decorate our tree. We found one of the ornaments didn't make it all the way intact. One phone call to them, and they had a new one shipped out and at our house within three days, no questions asked. Bronners is the best, and I've been going there ever since i was a baby.
  5. Same here. Last year was our first year animated, and I was able to produce four sequenced songs, eight arches, mega tree, built my Holdman Star. This year, I barely had enough time to sequence two songs, and the only thing different i did to the display was add red and green to the mega tree and made it bigger. 2012 was a hectic year personally for us. Hopefully 2013 will be better.
  6. There is also an RGB group on facebook with some useful information and resources https://www.facebook.com/groups/487541507963007/
  7. Allot has used the Reflections of Earth soundtrack from Epcot. Its hard to find the track, but enough PCers have done it, i'm sure a simple request can land one in your email. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFJ9KGf-AYE
  8. This is our second year going animated. This show consists of a 128 channel LOR network with a 64 channel mega tree consisting of red and green. Four leaping arches with eight sections each, and about 50% of the display is LED.
  9. This is one of the new songs that was added to our 2012 show. It was a big hit with the neighbors. We expect this is to return for our 2013 show.
  10. Put me down for this year! Thanks Michael Sent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk 2

    Orlando Displays

    Me too! Now I have to choose where we will have time to take the family to go see.
  14. Here is an article that features some Orlando displays. It also features several PC members as well. http://orlandolocalguide.com/christmas-lights-displays-in-orlando-neighborhoods-and-homes/
  15. I used the same one last year. It worked out good till it got hit by lighting. I bought a Ramsey and now I wish I bought a ramsey sooner. Sent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk 2
