    I am in the design stage of the display for this year. Laying out what I think in my yard, new items that I want to put in the display and also picking out songs that I want to use this year. I am looking at a bunch of new songs this year. Would like to try and have enough songs to do two different shows. One like a standard show and the second to be like a show of my doing like a swing show. I have a bunch of swing tunes that I am liking that I would like to sequence. New items in my display - moving to pixel icicles, looking to do candy canes inside of my arches, some additional pixel mini trees, possibly my P-10 panels and also possibly a walk through section.

    The three week whirlwind is now over. One week at the beach, one at scout camp. one in Austin, TX. New job started about 8 weeks ago. Still at IBM, but in a Program Manager type role. New neighbor moved in - he's up for joining the show! Finally really evaluating 3D printers and figuring out the options there. Have done nothing with my software. Need to get back on that bandwagon.

    A little summary of the past 6 months:
    Purchased lots of lights
    Changed my entire layout
    Working on sequencing
    Attaching lights to pipe for quick mounting
    Made a mega tree base, ASAP pole and topper.
    Switched the show to Unicast
    Ran 4 additional electrical circuits
    Lots of boating, family time and vacation
    Made a baby that is due in November which is making Xmas plans quite complicated.

    Hoping to see everyone next month at the TASL meeting.

    Good stuff everyone. Eric and Joel both made babies, but Joel's is mechanical .. ! It's pretty obvious that Eric wins the dedication award for 2017 .. Us old timers have been lazy for several years running (compared with how we were when we first did this) .. Hmmmmmm ...

    I've been getting KidCole Models off the ground. Sales is through the roof and has been for almost 10 years .. Everyone waiting for me to retire .. Very busy right now but I will be starting to split time between Christmas crap and the models.

    I am working to get the Aug 12th TASL meeting agenda up today so we can finish planning.

    Hi Scott .. we need to get our rectangular pixels ordered. I also need some regular bullet pixels too. I have never received any replies to my emails that I sent Paul Lowe .. Hopefully he is still planning to order rectangles for his too ...

    I have been super busy with work and kids stuff. It's amazing how easy it was to finish and put up a display with a 3 week old. Now approaching 6 months old and it's a lot harder to find free time. I have a few controllers on order but not much. I still have plans to build a scene to mimic Christmas morning which includes a fireplace and stockings, presents and a Christmas tree. I am also reworking a lot of my decorations to make them more attractive and Xmas like during daylight and during the show. I still have to build my tune to sign frame. And if I get time I am going to build a gingerbread family. I am looking to add a couple more Christmas classics to the song list this year and I'm always looking for the next kids favorite song.
