    Yup, Christmas is coming up fast! I went to my folks house yesterday to get some of my Christmas decorations out. Last year, my sister Jennifer gave me a rope light train. The plastic control box broke. I didn't want to remove it from the outside to fix it. So I put it in a zip lock baggie. When I pulled it out today, it was full of water! I had an unused Radio Shack project box laying around. What a suprise, the electronics fits perfectly in it. I cut out holes for the wiring. I drilled a hole for the rheostate. I used hot glue to weather seal the box too. Mounted everything in it. Plugged it in. It works!:thumb:

    This weekend, I am making my winter railroad display for my pc/radio desk. I will post it here! The tree will go up after Thanksgiving.:thumb:

    I've been cooking up some ideas in the squash but nothing solid yet. Another week or two and I believe I will have something.:D
