Welcome to Chuck's Corner
Look! An Update!
12/16/2011 - In case you haven't noticed, I really hate updating my web site. It's too much effort so I created a Facebook page for the Holiday Display here. I'll be posting photos and stuff there.
Old (2009) Updates
So far, over $1000 has been raised for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Thanks to all that have contributed.
For the rest of the season, the lights will run from 6:30 to 10:30 Sunday through Thursday and from 6:30 until midnight on Friday and Saturday. (No matter WHAT the LED sign says.
I'd like to thank Zavier Garcia once again for providing the St. Jude signs - I think they REALLY make it look much better.
12/31/2009 Final Update...
The lights are OFF for the season. They will be back on December 1st, 2010.
$2,846 (and change) was collected for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. I'll round that up to $2850 when I send it to them next week.
If you are one of the many people that wrote a check, please note that I will mail your check along with the rest of the proceeds next week. Don't worry - it didn't get lost or anything.
Over $850 has been collected for St. Jude. Here are some photos of the display.
Almost 500 people got free candy canes Friday and Saturday nights. I obviously didn't order enough. Over $570 has been collected for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital so far. Thank you!
The SDA Church came by with three pickup trucks full of kids. Oh, they had trailers full of kids as well (above.)
So far, over $382 has been collected for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Thank you for your support!
12/2/2009 It's Always Something...
There was some excitement here today...The big mega-tree collapsed this morning. Fortunately, nothing was broken and it's back up and running. Pay no attention to the duck tape and zip ties. Hopefully it will last another 4 weeks.

5/19/2009 New Lousy Column posted!
I posted my most recent attempt to amuse myself here.
3/28/2009 New Feature!
I recently bought a bunch of Christmas decorations from Craig's List. There were some really nice items which I'm keeping, some other really nice
items which I have already sold, a few "not too terrible" items that I gave away and then there was THIS thing:
While my first impression was to blast it with the potato cannon, I decided that it might be more amusing to do this.
1/4/2009 Christmas Light Show Details
I'm moving things around here so a lot of links will probably not work for a while. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Thanks to all of you that donated for St. Jude's! The total amount collected was $1,690 and change. I rounded it up to $1,700 and will be sending the proceeds to them tomorrow.
12/28/2007 2007 Videos Online!
It's possible that I've added video of all of the 2007 sequences over on the Christmas Lights page but it's PROBABLE that there's only one or two. Only one way to find out...
I've changed the Christmas Lights page to provide show information and other links. I also added some pics of the display.
