  • About my display
    I have been using airblown inflatbales in my display for quite a few years. 2007 was my 1st year with any light / music animation, I had a 6 channel GE music controller. In 2008 I have purchased 96 channels of LOR, but had technical difficulities. 2009 had me using 32 channels and my first successful animated musical display. 2017 I still use LOR, never got interested in pixels.....too old to learn. Using 132 channels.

  1. Yard sale is Saturday. Haven't done much planning as far as Christmas stuff for sale yet. I guess Saturday will be a free for all if anyone that shows up is interested in Christmas items. I will blow up a few and and display few blow molds. We have been blessed with other friends items to sell so our yard will be pretty full of household items, a little furniture etc.It does seem to make more sense to sell inflatables here, so after the yard sale I will display a few here and see what happens. I was a e-Bay seller for years and I just put up in my yard whatever I liked, some for many years and
  2. The yard sale will be Saturday May 18th starting at 8am. I am going to pull some inflatables out today and tomorrow and try and figure out what I want to part with. I will post whatever I deceide to sell in the next few days here in case anyone wants to make a purchase. My address is 134 Thames Dive. North Wales, PA 19454 (This is Montgomeryville PA if anyone is familiar with the area).
  3. Thanks for the tips. Wow, I have a Grinch, plus a Grinch in a Sleigh. I also have a Garfield that I won from Jason Jones that I believe never went into production. Maybe I should just sell those items here. I don't imagine those coming to a yard sale will appreciate these items?
  4. Hello: Our neighborhood is having a multi family yard sale. Our family is trying to raise support money for a daughter going to Cambodia for a month on a missions trip. So along with all sorts of unneeded household items, I am planning of selling some Christmas items I no longer need or want in my display. I have some inflatables, some misc. lights, a few blow molds, some wire frame soldiers that stand about 4 ft. tall, have led lights and plastic beads, I have other misc. lighted/plastic wrapped dolphin, penguin, seals. I also have some never opened rope lights (mostly multi colored).

  6. I know LOR hasn't lost the WOW factor with me. Every year I grow a little better and a little bigger. Every night when I come home from work, I stop in front of my house and listen to the radio and enjoy and critique my own show. When I look outside and see a bunch of cars looking at my show I get really excited. Every year I can't wait for the next year, but I lose enthusiasm a few weeks or so after Christmas, but my mind is still thinking. I hope this year I keep motivated so I can really get to the next level instead of restarting in September or October then cutting and pasting. I have
  7. Hello: Does anyone know where I can get a sequence for LOR for Mitch Miller's version of Must be Santa.....just ran out of time, but I have been wanting to sequence this song for a while. I have (4) 8 segment arches, and a small 8 foot tall tree with 8 spiral segments, along with window, gutters, blow molds, fence segments etc. I will adapt to my display if you have this song and can send your sequences I would be very greatful. Merry Christmas......with a capitol C Gary Pinkos
  8. My Sears in Montgomeryville PA went to 75 % today. My salesperson said Sears always starts sales & clearance on Sundays
  9. Lansdale is right in my back yard. I am in Montgomeryville, maybe we can go together? I had my first real animated display in 2009, been toying with idea for a few years. Its very cool!
  10. A few years ago I started using my Childrens play house in my display. When they out grew it I painted it red & green. This year was my first year with LOR controllers. I mounted my two controllers inside this house. I ran power directly from 4 new breakers in my basement to the house and all my extension cords came out from under the house when I had sitting on bricks in three corners. When setting up, the roof comes off and everything is easily accessable. I have lights on the house, so it is a nice part of my display.
  11. This is so true, when I finally got my lights on and I saw them flashing, I wasn't all that impressed......because I was comparing my display to all the awesome ones I have seen here and on youtube. But friends, family and neighbors were just in awe of my display......that actually made me more impressed and happy with it myself.
  12. I struggle to keep my choir people standing straight with thier heads facing forward, next year I will try a new method of displaying......I am enjoying the elevated look.
  13. I voted for June 26th. I would like to know the location if you know. I don't have anything in my display that is unique or different, so I am not sure what I can offer or bring to share, but I will try to think of something. Thanks!
