Christmas Lights Part 2

(for the record I was right. he was an electical engineer)

This the house that has the dancing christmas lights that is floating all over the web. This was on

Sometimes your huge, crazy, dancing holiday light display can be a little too popular.

Cops asked a Deerfield Township, Ohio, man who covered his house with 25,000 Christmas lights rigged to dance when holiday music plays to pull the plug on the display after a car wreck Tuesday night, according to Cox News Service.

Carson Williams, the owner of the house, told police he would turn off his holiday decorations indefinitely.

As earlier reported in Out There, Williams spends nearly two months hooking up the 25,000 lights and programming them to dance hundreds of cars drive by his house north of Cincinnati every night to see the display, which also is posted online.

Sheriff's deputies couldn't reach the scene of the accident because of the cars lined up on his neighborhood streets, Williams told a local Cincinnati TV station.

"He told us if we start having traffic problems that he would shut the display down for a while," Warren County sheriff's Lt. Ed Petrey told Cox News Service.

Williams' holiday light show drew national media coverage because the 25,000 lights are synched by computer with music beamed to car radios.

"I do a frosty song, 'God Bless the USA,' and then 'Wizards of Winter,'" as the three songs in the 12-minute show, Williams told Cincinnati's Local 12 News.

Around 7:30 p.m. near Williams' dancing-light display, two cars collided but there were no injuries.

"I told the neighbors, I told the sheriff, if they get any complaints, I'll shut it down, because the neighbors are more important to me than the Christmas lights," Williams said on NBC's "Today" show on Monday.

For now, Williams' eccentric light show will only be viewable on the Internet, motorists have been lining up between 6 and 10 p.m. since the display kicked off the week of Thanksgiving.

Williams, an electrical engineer, says he spent about $10,000 on his dancing Christmas lights.

Now see, there is something we can do with spare cash besides track bikes...

Nah... I'd rather spend it on track bikes.

Great Quote - One would think that the Secret Service was smart enough to get serviced secretly.

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
