Having A Few Issues…

Author: Ken | Filed under: Lights Friday Nov 28,2008

After the glitches were fixed last night, things ran pretty smoothly. Then there was tonight! If it could go wrong, it did tonight! Earlier in the day I hung the Merry Christmas sign on the rock wall, finally, and apparently in doing so I broke a light or something so I lost part of the […]

The Lights Are On…

Author: Ken | Filed under: Lights Thursday Nov 27,2008

So we went live tonight at 5pm PST. We had a few glitches, a few little things to fix, but it seems to be running smoothly now. Heck, we had a car full of people come by at 4:30pm asking when the lights would be on. I let them know they would be on at […]

Say What!?!?!

Are we really less than 19 1/2 hours from going “LIVE”!?!?  I think we are almost ready.  Got to plug in the timers for the power supplies, got to put up the blow up Santa and Frosty and set up the spots for the “Listen To Our Lights” signs.  I have other static things to […]

Did A Light Test Tonight…

Author: Ken | Filed under: Lights, Projects Sunday Nov 23,2008

Been working hard to get it all ready to go by Thanksgiving Night.  I had planned to get it all up and ready by November 2oth, that didn’t happen.  As long as we are ready by Thursday night, I’m ok with that. So, today I got 5 more controllers plugged in to everything and power […]

Here is a pic I took just a few moments ago of a couple of our homemade ropelight snowflakes and our homemade Bethlehem Star…

We have “snow” on our roof….

Author: Ken | Filed under: Lights, Projects Friday Nov 14,2008

It might not be the kind that fell from the sky, but we have snow flakes on our roof. We got them up there earlier tonight. One of my elves, Bob, went above (litterally) and beyond this afternoon. We had to finish making the stands for all 11 flakes and then get all of this, […]

Didn’t get much done today…

Author: Ken | Filed under: Projects Tuesday Nov 11,2008

Between having to work today and not feeling too hot, the rush I got yesterday after completing the Bethlehem Star was shot! I didn’t get too much done today but I did make the cat 5 cables we will need to run to our controllers. This is the first time I have ever done this […]

Our Bethlehem Star…

Author: Ken | Filed under: Projects Monday Nov 10,2008

So after 3 days of working on it… projecting the image onto the plywood, tracing the image, cutting out the shape, straightening the lines, measuring where to put the lights, drilling the holes, applying the primer and then 2 heavy coats of paint before putting the lights in this morning… our Bethlehem Star is complete! […]

Starting to deploy the lights…

Author: Ken | Filed under: Lights, Projects Friday Nov 7,2008

Got our two 6 foot wire trees finished after adding an additional 1000 lights to each (500 of both red and green to go along with the 350-450 white lights that were already one each) and they are now out in the yard, secured in place. Also got the outline traced for Bethlehem Star and […]

Where did the time go?!?!?

Author: Ken | Filed under: Misc Thursday Nov 6,2008
