  1. If you are talking about WiFi then no they cannot have the same address, each one needs its own IP or you will have conflicts.
  2. Those are my 5 that were repainted a few years ago. My dad had those before I was born and I am 42 now.
  3. I'm starting tomorrow morning. Going to be unseasonably warm here in Ohio, close to 70. I plan to get the Sleigh and reindeer on the roof with my sons help, and I have 4 large bells I put in the trees I want to try to get done, and then anything after that tomorrow is a bonus.
  4. Has anyone started decorating yet? My wife gets upset with me if I start putting up while our Halloween decorations are up. It is about time to start getting stuff down and prepping. My empire santa sleigh needs some work on the runners so I think I will get it down and start working on that to be ready for the roof. How's everyone doing?
  5. Thanks for the response Ted. I have the Gen Foam reindeer on my roof that use the regular night light bulb and no where near bright enough so I was thinking I may try these out.
  6. So just finding this thread, but is the E12 the same as a C7 bulb? Same base? I have the GF reindeers and they use nightlight bulbs, so I would like to have something brighter in them...
  7. We'll fire up on Black Friday at 6pm. I am still working on getting the display up so I probably won't completely finished until Friday afternoon lol
  8. Thanks for the words! This is going to sound like a Hallmark Channel reply but my 11 year old son and I just watched a YouTube video of the local news doing a story on our lights from 2013 and I heard myself talking about why I did it and it literally almost brought me to tears and reminded me why. I look back from 6 years ago and see how much everything has changed and how much more has been added since then. My plan is simple, I will get started this Saturday the 2nd and have everything ready by the 25th of November for our towns annual light up night. Thanks for taking the time to comme
  9. Guys, I am just not feeling it this year. One day I feel really content on not doing the lights at all, then a day later anxiety hits me thinking I really need to do it or I will be letting so many people down if I don't. I'm sure in the end I will end up doing it, and I don't start until the beginning of November anyways since it only takes me a couple of weeks. Anyone do anything special to get motivated and get at it?
  10. Does anyone have any info or links to this Cado company people were talking about and what Christmas molds they have?
  11. Want to talk about corporate greed and sending jobs overseas? I have worked for Best Buy for 8 years now. The last 5 of these years I have been working from home doing remote IT support. You have issues, you call in and link up with us, I fix your problem. Last Wednesday we found out that they are cutting 70% of our jobs (yes I got let go) and they are having our 3rd party company in the Philippines take over all the work. Talk about a kick in the gut! Now this with GF. Where are we ever going to get brand new molds now? I normally would buy 1 or 2 new ones each year, but who knows I m
  12. Yeah we had alot of snow here, and it was in the -20's for a few days, then all of a sudden we had rain and in the upper 40's, so I had 2 good days and was able to get everything down and put away. I was beginning to wonder if I was going to get a chance to get it down before spring lol.
