Christmas Lights



I have attempted to decorate our house for Christmas. This isn't the best night picture I have ever taken. Sorry about that. I am using lights that I bought at Wal-Mart (the large red ones and the green ones in the bushes) and have them on a transformer. I bought some other twinkle lights at the local Tesco-Lotus that work fine on 220v. I also have some of those really neat old-fashioned Noel candles that we got at Wal-Mart or Target in Tulsa. I had to do some creative electrical engineering to bypass the 110v fuse to get my 220v florescent bulbs to work.
To tell you the truth, it is a bit scary. But, it is pretty.

...and at 220v you can run a welder! *grunt grunt grunt*

Yea, but here, 220 runs toasters and hair dryers, too!
