  • Christmas 2018 countdown has already begun. Will you be ready???
  • Why do we love Christmas? It's all about the traditions. In this chaotic world we can miss the "good old days." Christmas reminds us of that time.
  • The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on that day.
  • Santa Claus's sleigh is led by eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder (variously spelled Donder and Donner), and Blixem (variously spelled Blixen and Blitzen), with Rudolph being a 20th-century inclusion.
  • Outdoor Christmas lights on homes evolved from decorating the traditional Christmas tree and house with candles during the Christmas season. Lighting the tree with small candles dates back to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe.
  • That big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard didn’t always look that way. Prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. When Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.

  13. Making Cat5 Cable

    the ez rj45's are really expensive so what I did with the regular rj45's I used a needle to push through the ends worked fine I had to use pliers to grip on to the end of the needle but it worked a little extra work but lots of time to do it
  14. Making Cat5 Cable

    I had the same problem when making them also, what I wasn't doing was pushing the cable all the way to the end and I did not leave enough of the jacket on to make a tight crimp
  15. 2013 Pixel Post Mortem

    Jerry B you hit the nail on the head when you said most people don't care if it is in sync or just blinking I found that out over the years they in most part just want to see the lights but what I do with my 12 ccr tree is I leave it out ever 2 or 3 song and hope people look at the rest of the display including blowmolds and let me tell you i'm not good at doing sequencing but people like it just the same
