Putting burned out lamps in a series

the other lamp's lives. I have been

in a series string that you don't want
We just went to see this house. It is in Mason, Ohio. I thought we were
probably going on a wild goose chase since I haven't heard anything
about this house except through an email I got -- and it didn't say
where it was. (Thanks No name -- it was easy to find once I knew who
owned the house).
The picture doesn't even begin to do it justice. There are more lights
on it in person than you can see in the picture. And it is more
colorful. Very impressive!! He plays music through an FM station that
you tune into in your car -- you can't hear the music otherwise --
therefore the neighbors aren't bothered by the noise. Some were
Christmas songs -- and the lights went along with the music. He played
God Bless the USA which was great and ended with the one you heard.
It is on a very short dead end street in a subdivision. I can't even
begin to imagine what that street is going to be like when the word gets
out and it gets closer to Christmas.
Ha...glad to read this. I saw the video linked in another NG and I wasn't
entirely sure if it was real or editing/video trickery. Are those LED
lights? The on/off time seems fast for incandescants. One thing I
wondered about was the figures or whatever they are that are on the lawn in
front of the peace sign...like why you can't see the outlines of the ones
in front when only the rear ones illuminate. Perhaps just overexposure
Glad also the music question is settled. I suggested that maybe someone
might do something like that via radio just like a drive-in movie. So
right on that count.
