  • About my display
    My display is modest compared to most I've seen on the Planet Christmas site, but I still have the brightest home in our neighborhood.I can't afford alot, but every year I try to add something new. I hope to someday computerize. I have had static displays for over 20 years. UPDATE....Nov. 1, 2008 ....I didn't have the cash for an LOR, but i was able to get a Lights and Sounds Of Christmas Deluxe today. This will be my first step into musical animation.

    Any luck so far?

    I'm on the other side of the Cascades, It's been in the 30s' but no rain, and thankfully no snow yet. I started day after Halloween and I am actually ahead of my schedule. Chance of snow tomorrow, just have to see how things go. If the weather holds I'll be done early. Hope Hope !!!!!!!!!
  2. I need to find a source for 6V mini replacement bulbs, all I have been able to find is 2.5,3,and 5V. Any Ideas?
  3. I like number 5. Try to increase the font size. I put the largest lettering I could on my sign. Here's a picture. [ATTACH]24975[/ATTACH]
  4. Try to keep your design as simple as possible. Have your lettering as large as you can get it.
  5. Build-A-Sign is having a free shipping promo for 2 weeks.

    Anybody here ?

    Boy am I late on this thread. I'm still here in Bend OR. Had our first snow on the 4th, has'nt warmed up since. Weatherman saying a chance of snow Monday, this is way to early. I hope to get to the valley sometime this season to see some of the displays you guys have. I'll have to watch the Oregon threads a little close now. Keith
  7. My Ramsey, with the whip antenna that came with it, and the output power set to about 75% transmits approx. 1/2 mile and sounds great.
  8. Good Luck...Our Prayers are with you, and for a quick recovery.
  9. The snow was about 1 mo. early, leaves haven't even fallen yet, it destroyed numerous trees in the area from the weight on the branches. Yes I built the light house for my wife about 7 yrs. ago when we lived on the coast. When we moved I just could not leave it, I had just started building it when I found out I was sick, so it was a mad rush to finish it before the treatment made me to ill. I didn't know how long I would be around, I had to finish it. Thankfully I'm still here. I guess thats why Christmas means so much to me.
  10. First Snow.....Oct.4th, I wonder if this is a sign of things to come. [ATTACH]23761[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]23762[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]23763[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]23764[/ATTACH]
  11. Do you have a picture? Never mind I forgot to scroll up . Sorry
  12. Ditto Guys..... I would feel as though I was stealing if I did that.
  13. Thats Great....I've had trouble getting motivated too. Between financial and health reasons, I just can't get it together. I hope a little of that kind of motivation will come my way.
  14. The spools at our Lowe's were distributed by LG Source. Had only Multi and white. Looked like the rest of the Leds were all GE.
