  1. Ok, here's our first night of testing Big Ben, he was a big hit! The clock looks gorgeous.
  2. I bought mine last year for over $180 I fI remember right. Worked great for the 30 days of Christmas. Plugged it in this year and worked great for 20 minutes, then starts turning off for a minute, then tries to flash on, then flickers off again for a minute. Now it on't come on at all. Tried new ransformer, sme thing. Anyone else got one of these and seeing same problem?
  3. Here i a photo of my new Big Ben display that I'm working on. I got the inspiration for it while watching the olympics over the summer. As of now it stands 11 feet but with the extra dormer tower section to add on top, it should come to over 13 feet. I created a monster!

  5. I noticed that Lowes has LED net lights 4 x 6 foot with 100 count from GE for prices ranging $16-$22. Why is it that the online stores, many who are vendors here have them priced in the $40 range? Let's face it folks, they all come from China, just not sure why there is such a disparity in pricing.
  6. Finally got time to upload the high definition video of my best musical sequence this year on my Christmas lights:
  7. yes, he is the same hedge fund dude that did the outrageous display last year which I posted about back then.
  8. I was driving home tonight, saw Channel 10 on Sample Rd at Turtle Creek not far from my house, and noticed Jesus was not on their big nativity display , and checked their web site when I got home. This is the second high profile display where Jesus was stolen. This is why I drag Jesus in every night. http://www.local10.com/news/Baby-Jesus-missing-from-nativity-display/-/1717324/7235502/-/3hgkm0z/-/index.html
  9. The house is in Greenwhich, Conn. Can you say...hedge fund!
  10. I know it's a professional job, but still left me breathless! These guys used 2 40 foot tall screens in the shape of 2 Christmas trees with DMX controlled video projectors, I did not see anyone else post this, so I hope I'm not just duplicating what others have posted. Enjoy! http://youtu.be/zNPKVNF1jnE?hd=1
  11. People often ask me if I decorate the inside of our house like we do on the outside with 60,000 lights. This year we scaled way back on the inside, but here is what we did...
  12. Praise God! I finally got my new 3 wise men to complete the nativity set. I went to Sam's Club to buy this at 7:30 yesterday morning, right after my trip to Macy's. it was the last one there! I paid only $99 dollars for it, and this was $225 dollars a week ago, and they had marked it down to $150 by 12/22, but I held my ground. I went in on 12/26 and it was about 60% off. They told me someone came in just before me and bought the last 3 Wise Men set that was still in the box, so I bought the loose floor display of the 3 piece wise men set. Here is my one big happy Nativity family! I was
  13. Wow, thanks Mike! Are they really $200! How many do you have? The main question is can I control the wings to the beat of the music? Or are the wings controlled by the built in controller? I'd love to see a close-up. BTW, I just won the City of Margate contest, they just called me a few minutes ago. It was great having 3 Planet Christmas people in the final on GMA. Richard Holdman did the sequence for that Jacksonville home. He and I got screwed on the travel Channel special, they showed our houses for maybe 4 or 5 seconds at most, and never mentione our names. But glad they at le
