  1. Hi Chuck,

    I'm sorry the traffic has dropped off of PC so much. I have to admit I read over the LOR forums almost daily but haven't been here in a long time. I started coming back a little over a week ago. Your site has always had great information and I would love to read the "magazines" that you would put out. I've met a few people in real life that are or were on here and have even picked up some freebies and bought items from some members on here! I would hate to see PC go to Facebook exclusively. As mentioned before maybe start a FB account/page and post every once in a while directing people to check out this site, mentioning something that you or someone posted in this forum or an article that you posted. 

    I can't thank you enough for all you've done for me in the past. You were the one that taught me to sequence at the LOR Jumpstart classes I attended in Philly and Baltimore. You are my mentor and I will always look up to you! Thank you for all you do for our hobby. You really do a great job with this site. 

    Have a blessed day and stay safe.

  2. HI Everyone,

    I'm sure most of us do our over the top displays and light shows because we enjoy seeing them and our family members do too but you never know who will stop by out front of your house to see your lights. My wife and I, unfortunately, recently were at our bosses mothers funeral. Her husband hired us over 20 years ago and he passed away in 2013. He was a great guy. The lovely lady that recently passed was one of the sweetest and kindest persons I have ever known.

    Anyway, while at the visitation before the service we were talking to our bosses wife, we have been friends with the family for many years. In passing she said they took her out to see our lights this past season. We weren't home otherwise they would have stopped in. She then thought about it for a second and told us she's pretty sure that was the last thing they did together as a family before she got sick (again). She battled cancer extremely bravely for about 8 years. She's with Jesus now because we learned she accepted him as her Lord and Savior more than 10 years ago! If really hit me latter that our Christmas light show was there so this family can have that as one of the last fond memories of her. True I love making the lights blink but I absolutely love knowing that people are enjoying our show. If Chuck Smith hasn't told you or you haven't read it in his magazine articles let me tell you this. What we do matters! Yes, have fun but it's also a bit serious. Remember you are making life long memories for the people and especially the kids watching your show. Know that 10, 15 even 20 years from now some person will ask their mother or father "Hey, remember that house you took us to back when we were kids?" "We loved doing that!"

    I don't mean to bring anyone down just wanted to share something that touched my heart and really made me feel good.

    Hope everyone has a blessed night/day. :) 

    Al
