Looks cool, though your wife definitely made you tone it down BigGrin_Green I've often thought of messing with those lights, but I never can seem to pull the trigger for the initial purchase. Those strings are pretty pricey even though they have come down from where they started a few years ago.

So when do you go full synchro with music and lawn lighting... Tongue in Cheek

Given the projects on your site, I guess we know who to go to for questions on LEDs and lighting them up with a Nerdkit. Looks good.

Hey Rick,

i know what you mean. the ones i have were $75 (US) but i waited until around Jan 1st to purchase them. they were 70% off at Lowes so I bought a butt load of them. I have 6 or 7 strands (36 light strands not the 50's). Don't think i will go Synchro though. i have a buddy that does that and he has over 20,000 lights (lights, not strands of lights) now and it takes him a month or more to set it all up. i think i am a little A.D.D. and would never get it finished before i moved on to something else. i think i will attempt to make one of the Megatrees next year. not sure if i have enough lights to make a good looking one though but it is a thought.
