We had one just like that in the '60's when I lived in South Florida. Can't get no evergreens down there. I remember that color wheel fondly red, green, blue, orange, and yellow I think were the colors.

Good job JB!

Did you use the Heavy Duty Foil. Might get an extra season or two out of it that way!

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

I love it when you almost choke on your first word!! I think someone had a few too many pops upon filming that clip. Just a guess though!

What channels do you get with that tree? I'm guessing close to basic cable!

JB finally had time to watch the video.

I love your tree. Takes me back to being a kid spending winters in Florida.
