HAPPY HOLIDAYS! Wally Fields, Eichlerholic, here. Every year I encourage owners of what I call the "Pleaides models" (Eichlers with the walls of Obscure Glass in the front) to put Holiday lights behind the glass. The results are stunning when seen from outside, and I have some pictures here to prove it... (If you can't click on URL, try pasting) TEST
Varying your distance from the glass produces some interesting results.. the blobs get bigger as the lights get farther! Here's videos to illustrate: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QAecqcYRFo
PLEASE pardon the word "test" and all the other extraneous marks in the above. Like 99.9% of the forum programs out there, the posting never looks EXACTLY as I formatted it, even in the preview. I put the word "test" there to see if the preview was even responding to my changes at all!
That said... if the above inspires you, send pics of your decorations to me!
