Solar power Christmas lights sound like a pretty good idea right? Well, they are but make sure you don’t get multi-mode lights. I bought two sets of solar Christmas lights from two different companies. Both had 8 modes. Both have the same issue, no memory. When the batteries run out, they forget what setting they […]
I found a nice Christmas wallpaper for my phone the other day but I wanted something more. Adding a WordPress logo looked great. But not everyone likes WordPress, so I made an Apple one too. And then a Santa one. Enjoy!
Jack was made mainly from PVC. You can see the instructions over here. I made him a bit shorter as he was like 8 feet tall and instead of fabric, I used a plastic tablecloth for clothes. The mask is from Amazon so I kind of cheated on that part. All in all, it turned […]

On the bottom row we have a penguin, a cat, and the moon and stars. All pumpkins are lit with either rechargeable lights or battery operated […]
Every year my wife puts on a Halloween mystery meal that has some pretty disgusting sounding things on it, but everything is good to eat. This year didn’t disappoint. Halloween Mystery Meal 2016 Menu Utensils Pitchfork > Fork Mummy Bandage > Napkin Witches Wand > Spoon Main Intestines > Puff Pastry with Cheese or Meat Toxic Waste > Mac n Cheese Dyed Green Dead Mans Fingers > Peanut […]
Lily’s leprechaun trap this year is a good one. It has a trap door that auto closes with a rubber band to keep the little guy in. On the door is a jelly bean to lure him up. Stairs, because the trap door is on top of a cooler. The cooler contains candy and a bed so […]
May the Christmas force be with you. Or not.
