    Well, I can't blame you since that definitely saved some bucks on the shipping. I'm glad I could help and I hope all your projects are a success! Yea, reindeer motors do that too. When you start them up after powering down they will turn in the opposite direction.

    Would also look cool to have an animated Ouija board on the table in front of the actors.

    Well, I hope they will work well for your needs since you ordered 20 of them. You might have been better off just ordering a few to start with and experiment. That's what I do, anyway. LOL I'm not really sure how much torque these motors have, since I mainly use them for animated Ouija boards. The motors are similar to the reindeer motors where they will reverse direction if too much torque is applied. If you bought the same motor I put in the link, I just solder on an AC line cord that I...

    Then there might be the occasional nut-case who travels 1,000's of miles on a vendetta (real or imagined) because of something someone said, or typed or something they thought someone said or typed..... All a very good reason to always be "Nice" on-line, if problems arise-apologize and mean it. (Someone has to be "The Adult"!)

    GO.. You WILL FIND the common acceptance level to be extremely HIGH! (You will have look long and hard to find any "sour-Apples") Sometimes Assigned "tasks" can be sort of ill-defined if you are to be saying or doing, but WTH? Fun is where you happen to find it and 99% of people attending are seeking the same things that you are going for.

    When "Random" begins to fit a pattern, what is it then? A woman told me a certain street light never goes out when she drives under it, unless her Husband is in the car with her, then it seems to almost always go out! The haunted house we live in has seen many "random" things occur when they are talked about. Last October Geoff a new Oct. employee here was talking to my Wife , just the two of them were in the room, Geoff mis-spoke and accidentaly said the word "Fart". A fart machine behind...

    Yrs. ago it may have been the magazine Mechanics Illustrated showed how to make a Pepper's ghost the el-cheapo method stretching handi-wrap across a pvc frame, or maybe it was window film you heat with a hair dryer? Yes, that was it. Forget the expensive plexi-glass then.

    When the two local schools consolidated they became "The Thunder" for a team name. It was difficult coming up with a logo or a cartoon character to represent such a thing. I mean, it's a sound. If the team had been called the Farts, well, this would have been fearsomely different and aggressive, leaving no doubt as to what forces the other teams would be up against!.. I know! The Thunder-Farts OR Farts of Thunder!

    Hey, I didn't mean anything when I said I hadn't heard of charity. Its not really all that surprising because I don't get out much and don't really watch much local t.v. I just thought maybe my hubby might have heard about the event since he's in media. It sounds like it will be quite a bitter sweet day. He must feel so proud of the work he's doing and its wonderful something good can stem from such tragedy but I can only imagine how hard it must be for him too!

    Yes, I looked up the charity when you sent me the initial message. I was only curious because my hubby hadn't heard of the charity or the event. I have to agree with your hubby, it is gorgeous! We have the mountains in the upstate and live oaks dripping with moss and the ocean in the low country. As beautiful as the scenery is, it's the people that are the real treasure!

    Greenville is an awesome city and SC is an amazing state! We just LOVE it here. We moved from "up north" about 11 years ago. It sounds like it will be quite an event. Has he gotten a lot of press? Is your BIL retired and running his foundation full time or does he have a separate day job?

    Oh that's not bad at all! My hubby and sister in law have been at me for some time about doing this. I have been looking at other people's bracelets and pricing trying to get some idea what's out there. I was chatting to Bethene about this and told her I was wondering about how I might find out how frequently someone's products sell and she showed me how to see that information. Then I was discussing this Hallorenescene and she told me that etsy charged to list items. (I had no idea) I still...

    I was given an old 1947 radio tower, I had to disassemble it. I didn't use all of it just maybe 40 feet, the pointy top 40 feet. I sheeted it with 3/4 inch plywood, bolting it all on, then shingled it. This sets on top of a small 10 by 10 building I built just to hold this tower, it's got 2 by 6s and 2by 8s in the walls, and a lot of them. I am very pleased with the solar-powered lights I have pointed at it, to give it a glow, rather than a blinding light too harsh for "Spooky". I show...

    Some are allergic to certain metals coming in contact with their skin, some people can't wear a battery watch because the battery goes dead too soon, or the watch goes "crazy" and races ahead of the time it is.

    Hi Gary,

    I love your reaper and I bet those witches look great in the dark. My best Halloween treat was the pictures of my grandson stuffing candy in his mouth. He is two and doesn't get to eat candy...except for Halloween. He was a bundle of energy for hours, or should I say days.

    Take Care,

    Hi everybody...my Halloween was a quiet one. My grandson went out of town with his parents to a weekend party. It was good for him to have other children to play with...but we got some great pictures of my little "Elmo". I've been watching all of you scurrying to get ready and I know I will join the insanity next year...it just wasn't meant to happen this year.

    However, I do have news of a Blog I just started to keep myself more organized, and to solicit you help in keeping me moving forward. So check it out....I don't think the registration function is working right yet...at least the automatic e-mail function, but I hope to have that fixed soon. I believe the RSS feed is working so you are welcome to subscribe to updates. It still needs a lot of work, but I'm really happy with the way my design work has turned out so far. I want to do something creative with the title instead of just the plain text, but that will come in time. Anyway, if you see problems on your side please let me now OK...you are my testers.

    And I serious...kick me in the b...backside if you don't see new posts showing progress.

    Hi Otaku I'm just stopping by to say hello. I have been around much because I've been focused on building my online business, which I hope to launch next week. After that I should be around annoying ya'all again. What are you doing to get ready for the big day?

    Hello my favorite forum friends. I am sure you are all eagerly anticipating the big day....only 48 days and counting. I just wanted to check in with all of you because I haven't been logging on for a while. I am in the process of starting a new business and it is consuming a lot of my time on the computer right now. I am hoping to have a web page on line in the next couple of weeks. When I reach this milestone I will send you all a link so you can see what I've been up to.

    It has been three years since I left my job. Mentally I was not ready to retire. Physically my doctor said do it now... So I have been searching for a life after a very personally rewarding and mentally demanding career. I'm not happy unless I do something that challenges me to grow. So I feel like I have finally found that path. I miss you all and plan to be back as soon as I can. Since Halloween is approaching quickly, I have some makeup charts for Halloween faces that might be of interest to you. I will post them in my albums some time next week. They might give you some new ideas.

    Take care my friends
