    Good looking projection. The good news about tests like these is getting to determine when you can fire up the projection so they can be visible. One of the things about high lumen projectors is the brighter the image, the earlier in the evening you can project successfully. Victor

    Always carry two,small but powerful flashlights,and don't be afraid to turn them "ON", if you have any doubts about where you are stepping or walking , and if you sense someone might be hiding,once again use a flashlight to check them out. Being in "The Dark" can work both ways and some rowdy types assume they can punch someone working there and get away with it by claiming fear or saying,"Sorry , I was Drunk!".. as you get an ambulance ride to an oral surgeon, or the Cat Scan machine.

    During the 1930's Depression , here in this small, rural town,many "average" people owned a small stand of timber near town for firewood for heating their houses,many of those people cut their own firewood, with hand tools,transported their wood back home, racked it up in neat rows for easy Winter use, this required labor, which they did themselves until old-age overcame them, then "Family' would take over caring for them, No Nursing homes then here. Younger children got to "Know"...

    "Head" to "Body" dimensions can make for some unplanned for creatures. I made my "Rambo Rabbit" costume,and the head was so big, that when photographed, I seemed to be a little kid about 3 foot tall. This might have made it seem more "Kid-friendly"? Which was OK with me. "Rambo Rabbit scared many adults later inside my house by the oldest "scare" ever invented, pretending to be a static prop . A helper of mine wore the costume, stood there with one "Paw" hand extended, people would grab...

    The longer you remain unemployed the more potential employers seem to think that YOU must have some huge problem and they won't even give you half a "Look". Years ago the State that had the fewest people who had their own health insurance was also the state that had the highest percentage of "Self-Employed",who were merely "Self-Employed" because they could find nothing else , and then could not afford any health insurance either. That term: "Self-employed" sounds like you have either more...

    Today after my wife and i had both been upstairs, she said that she could hear "water running'... I listened, I heard it too. Going back upstairs I found the Lav. faucet was running a pretty good stream of hot water. She asked,"Is it "Haunted"? (this is a Haunted,haunted house.) No. This faucet turned "ON" by itself after we had left the room. I had discovered many years ago how to "Haunt" a faucet,especially if it is a really old Kohler faucet. When you put a new washer in it just...

    Born in 1949 I was too young to know about any President until Eisenhower, then when he was no longer the President... it seemed very . strange to my young mind? "But he IS The President!" "not any more." "?" (How could that be? He's still alive,he's not hospitalized. He seems all right seeing him in public.' (simple mind, huh?) I wonder now, if Eisenhower had somehow remained as our President,would he have been assassinated too? His" quip" about watching those Military-industrialists ...

    I finally found the entrance spot some Raccoons were using to get into a part of this house. I could see it ,but could not reach the spot without much ripping and more ripping! So I took a junk piece of 6 inch tin pipe ,mixed up a bag of concrete mix then stuck the pipe where I needed the blockage to Raccoon Freeway and slid down the entire bag on-target! Chew through that! If only the raccoons would keep their Ghost costumes on, we could have gotten along better. I just had to fire them...

    If the lamp life is still good, its a decent projector. I used to own a Sharp A10x pj for my home theatet and it was great for dvd, hd, video games, blu ray, etc. The specs on my A10 are very similar to the Sanyo except the Sanyo is much brighter. You'll want to get a HDMI to VGa for best results or go el cheapo and use the composite yellow RCA out your playback device http://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters%C2%AE-Active-Female-Adapter/dp/B008O7RH5C ...

(Old Sanitarium) There were a couple rubber balls that sometimes become "manipulated" get and played with by what is believed to be a "Ghost Boy". They hid the balls in a cabinet when no one was around. Then they vanished , only to come rolling toward them at night down a long hallway. They gave the balls a good "Kick" sending them flying...

    480x320 is really bad resolution, even at this price and with stuff you can get today. Expect screendoor effect at larger sized images. For comparison, look at the AAXA P1 pico projector. Although the lumens isnt as high I'm more willing to trust the specs of the AAXA as opposed to what the makers of the projector AtmosFX was sold to. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005TAXDPK/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B005TAXDPK&linkCode=as2&tag=picoprojector-20 The...

    Oh, Yah? I have been enjoying the top and almost only item on my "Bucket List" for many years now, having a "Haunted House" OPEN every night of the year. Who kicks "The Bucket" first? I am a child of the 1940s! (Yes "19", not "18",no matter what some might tell you! ) It just sometimes feels like I was born in the 1840s.
