    Well I started putting up my lights and only to find the one part of the chain has no lights!!! that means I'm gonna have to pull out each globe and replace each to see which one affecting it.

    This gonna take a while as my other set also has this problem.

    Yeah thats the part i hate..... how a whole group of like 15 go out, and you have to test everyone to see which was the dud.... and its always the last one in the line thats the dud, takes forever..... and untangling them, thats a prick.
    Drove round last night, there was quite a few that have popped up lately, some of them are crazy. Some crazy santas and reindeer and what not

    Parents do the house up each year, for a while there we had four or so houses in a row chewing away at the grid, but neighbours have left and people get lazy.

    I'll get some pics. It's good in it's own respect, but I'm a huge fan of rope lights, they seem to look tidier. Last year wasn't bad we had the old boy out the front dressed as Santa handing out candy canes, with my dog sitting next to him with reindeer antlers on.

    ....

    I've gotta get me some more Rope lights for next year!!
    They are so much neater, easier to run, and they stand out like Dog's Balls, I have 27 power points occupied, and it still isn't bright enough to take pic's!!

    Oh well, till next year...lol..
    I will Take the kids for a cruise this weekend, just thought I'd give people time to set em up first...
    I've heard that Olivers Hill is going off in the Dark!! Have to go for a peek....

    Olivers Hill...

    OK, Anyone that knows Olivers Hill Frankston...Otherwise for all that don't, Drive towards Mornington on the Nepean Hwy, through Frankston and the road will sweep through a couple of short twists, allowing you to see the water, and some sand, just as the road begins to head uphill, this is known as Olivers Hill, at the base of this is a few houses that are very organized with their lights, they put on half hour displays from 9pm till 11pm every night, they have their own radio frequency,(88.1fm) I think, it says it there on a sign.... Apparently, I haven't seen it myself, but the light show is set up to go with the music from this channel.....!!!??? Sounds great, I will have to check it out!!

    If you are in the area, definitely worth a look !!:thumbsup::thumbsup:
