    Yeah, I'm waiting for one guy's house down the street to go up in flames with all his lights and blowup's. I kind of hoped the tornado took all his lights but apparently not as he has more this year. After the tornado he put up a fence and now the fence is lined with lights too. It gets to a point it's both gaudy and DANGEROUS!
    One guy won't see Christmas this year, while putting up his lights his aluminum ladder hit the power lines and killed him.

    Wow....

    I have to get out and take a picture of a house in the next city over. They have so many lights and things setup that they use the neighbors lawns. They also have a website that I will post with a picture that I take. I'm going to try and make it out tonight, I hope the weather cooperates.

    JS, it's sad to hear about things like that during the holidays.

    Probably enough to the point if they pulled the plug, many top executive bonuses and vacations would have been canceled at the local power company.

    I thought the one in my neighborhood was crazy. There is a childrens Christmas book everyone should read that goes along these lines it's called Christmas Extravaganza, next time you're at the book store check it out you'll get a laugh.
