    Finally! My new TV and a bonus

    After nearly 3 months of working and waiting, I was finally able to take my Christmas gift out of its box. HERE'S a photo of it - a beautiful 50 incher - as well as my tribute to the Cyclones. My wife gave me the green light to paint the logo on the sub-cellar door. Makes for quite the "Cyclone Room!"

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: Finally! My new TV and a bonus

    In two weeks i'm getting an HD projector, 106 inch projector screen, and an 860 watt home theatre sound system. It's going to be like i'm at a movie theatre in my own house. My friend has a system set up similar to this and i fell in love with it and had to have it.

    Aren't you still in school? You have a slightly bigger TV than I do.... But only by about $20 (at retail, I got mine for only $100). Don't feel bad, unless you're a teacher-to-be like me, you can afford such a TV within about 2 days of being hired!

    Re: Finally! My new TV and a bonus

    No need for envy, that TV represents about a year's worth of gifts from my wife

    To create the logo, I printed the logo off on transparency and used an old-school projector to show it on the door. Then traced it with pencil, painted (from lightest color to darkest) and filled in the black with a fat marker.

    I'll have to shoot a picture of the "mural" I did in my garage some time. That turned out pretty well too... (Need to clean the garage first! )

    I'm concerned your keeping such a nice tv in such a small place ... does she make you live in the closet?

    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.
