  • About my display
    It's an indoor display. 16 channels.
  1. It's probably way too late to do one this year, but I might be able to attend or help out next year. I'm in Reno.
  2. That is a nice story. Having my little display is sort of doing the same thing for me. It's nice when people come over to see the one song I have done so far, and it's really giving me the Christmas spirit this year. It feels good too, just to have all the lights up. I love every bit of it.

    First Snow

    You guys have some nice looking displays! I hope I can get out to see some of them before the season is over. This snow....
  4. All my lights are indoors, so my lights are just fine. *ducks behind the sofa* I'm with you on the sentiment of not wanting to put up with this for several months every year. I really don't want to have to own two sets of tires. I'm thinking California sounds nice right about now, but don't kill me for saying that, I'm an Oregon native.
  5. Thank you Bull and Darin! Yeah, I guess so...I never thought about the snow being on all the lights. Seems the whole northern USA is snowed in right now.
  6. ha Portland i know were that is i live in ID

  7. Well here is my modest indoor light display. The pic that shows the lights on is showing the lights I turn on when there is no show running. I khope you like it.
  8. Whoa, I didn't see all these welcomes.. thank you everyone! It's so nice to be here, you all seem so friendly. I am using a combo of regular minis and LED minis. I have the regulars in "general" areas and the LED's in "specific" areas if that makes any sense! So when I turn off the regulars and turn on the LEDs it really makes an impact. I'll take a picture tomorrow and post it. I almost bought a camcorder the other day but I was too tired to make that last stop.. lol So maybe when we are out of the deep freeze I'll get some video of my display too. Oh, and I'm using a LOR 16 chann
  9. The Beaverton Target didn't have much left for lights. Friday and Saturday the Rite Aid right down the street had %75 off but very few LEDs left.. mostly all white and I don't do white. And I'm pretty much snowed in right now too. BMcGeeny, you're a monster! I could never get to that many stores.. make me tired just thinking about it. Gonna have to look up that Fleet Farm.. never heard of that before. So many new exciting things to learn in this Lighting world.
  10. Chocolate Christmas Truffles 1/2 cup whipping cream 1/4 cup Irish cream liqueur 2 tablespoons coffee liqueur 1 1/2 teaspoons instant-coffee crystals 1 12-ounce package semisweet chocolate pieces 1/4 cup butter Sifted cocoa powder 1. In a bowl, combine whipping cream, Irish cream liqueur and coffee liqueur. Stir in the instant-coffee crystals; set aside. 2. In a heavy saucepan, melt chocolate and butter over low heat. Remove from heat; gradually stir in cream mixture until blended. 3. Transfer to a bowl; cover tightly and chill in refrigerator
  11. Hmmmm... that might be what I saw. I guess I'm just going to have to go and take another look at the lights that I saw last year. Thanks for taking the time to reply though.
  12. Hi Randy, I would but we're kinda snowed in right now... the entire city is practically snowed under. I'll get a pic when I go to my sisters house on christmas. It won't warm up till then anyway, and I saw some in her neighborhood last year. I think I'll go knock on some doors too!
  13. So they are just ordinary blue leds? And they are dark like that? I wonder if they make minis in that color because I would love some. So far I only see the regular blue minis. And also wondering where to buy them... I've never seen them in stores, and I can't find them online.
