    You better believe they pre-paid! I would also then give them a house tour, ending with them being shown their bedroom. "Well, we are going up the street to have a few beers, see you later." Never see them again! I was told by a man who did some house-sitting 50 miles from here that later when that house became a B&B that people would be found in the morning sleeping (or trying to) in their own cars because odd, scary stuff was happening in the room. You are tired, you drove 3 plus hours...

    Use Christmas tree lights as cords then everyone will look away, not wanting to see those sickening, garish colored lights in October! Sort of like discouraging people from staring at your boil on your face by drawing a big, red ring around it with a question mark in black eyeliner next to it.

    The Ravens Grin Inn was a haunted bed & No breakfast. Hard to serve breakfast when they couldn't make it through til morning. I found it's true:"Opposites Do attract", which means in a couple's relationship, one loved being here the other one was terrified! (And the scared one was not always the woman, by any means!) Of those who did make it through a night here, as I remember it only one couple had anything really strange happen to them, and it actually happened the next morning. "She"...

    Gym Whourlfeld replied to a thread Electronic/Software: Ravens Grin now "Solar"! in Halloween Props
    The solar units I bought seem to do very well with out tons of bright sunshine. They turn on when they should and stay strong from dusk to at least 12 Midnight , my closing time. The quality of the light is a white-light which adds a definite strange quality even as the light might get more dim as the night goes on. When I first got this house 27 years ago my electric bills ran from $18 to 23.oo a month and was doing welding, ever since a Co-op took over the bills runs $150 a month and...

    Gym Whourlfeld started a thread Electronic/Software: Ravens Grin now "Solar"! in Halloween Props
    I bought the first solar lights for $37-3 lights, one solar collector/battery. I returned and found them on sale for $27.00 . They work very well. Charge all day, turn on when it is dark enough to need them, they are very weatherproof, built heavy, designed well, adjustable,heavy cast metal spot lights with a very solid adjustment knurled knob which sets pushing "teeth" into Teeth for no sloppy motion once it's all set. I have modified mine by running their thin , little wires inside of...

    I don't need anyone or any calendar telling me that it's a full-moon. I feel it. I am awake at 2:30, still awake at 5:25 as I type this...No strange hair-growth, just sort of a wanderlust feeling, where's that pack I run with? Lounging around up on Graveyard hill? Laying in the moon shade of a huge grave stone? When you grow up in a house in a valley, surrounded by numerous houses looking down your neck, then live in your own house, in a valley, I think one seems to begin to feel (no...

    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.

    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...
