PEZ Dance Troupe and Chorus Ring in the New Year

Well, we couldn't let the new year start without a PEZ party! I edited Mariah Carey's version of Auld Lang Syne down to 2 and half minutes, dressed up the PEZ, added a strobe light, colored spotlights and a disco ball and reprogrammed the PEZ motion.

The circuitry works like a charm, although I overloaded the servo control board with the additional amperage. The servo controller user manual explained the limitations and when I fiddled with a few things, everything worked just like it should.

We had planned to put them outside this weekend for an encore performance but it was rainy today and supposed to rain tomorrow, so they probably done for the season.

Happy New Year

Every year on NYE I blow up between 80 and 100 balloons and tie them to the Christmas tree. 

At midnight we the kids pop them all to bring in the New Year. It's fun and the tree looks beautiful one more day.
