    Shook the moths out of the wallet and bought my first controller, Pixlite 16 long range. Shook a helluva lot harder and have some booty sailing across the sea from Ray Wu.

    The controller has arrived - stand by for the tears as I try to make it all work.

    Just been running a few plans past the Minister for War and Finances, and showing her videos of members Xmas light displays.

    Her response?

    "You should have bought more!"

    Mission accomplished!

    That is the biggest problem, You show the minister the "good" displays to impress her and she expects that straight up :)
    My first year last year was OK, but this year I had to get an excavator in to rip all the trees out of the front yard so they didn't hide the show. (her idea)
