Ron's son, Zach (second one back on the right side of the table) sent me this picture. One of our early, common interests was the Macintosh, and we often spent many hours talking about how much we liked our Macs.

Last week, I told you of a person who had a tremendous impact in my life. He recently went through a near-death experience and had significant medical bills to show for it. I asked you, the CTA audience, to help out. And help out you did! Within a few days, they have met the fundraising goal. As I look through the list of donors, I see many names I recognize and a lot I don't. I was moved by the comments some made, and am so thankful for this community that has been created here. 

So I just wanted to say thanks. I've heard from all his kids how touched and moved the whole family is because of your generosity. They are completely blown away that hundreds of people they don't know, and who don't know their dad would contribute to his recovery. Thank you.

It's a great thing when we can be a blessing to others, and you have blessed Pastor Ron, his family and me. Thank you.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

By the way, you can still contribute to the medical expense fund. They've reached the goal, but what a great way to spread some more Thanksgiving cheer...

CTW Coverage of LDI 2014: Chauvet Ovation FD-165WW and ED-190WW

The F-165WW and E-190WW have been extremely popular and effective LED Fresnel and Leko-style fixtures, respectively. But for the venue that already has a solid installed base of dimmers, these new fixtures make 1:1 replacement easier than ever. By creating a power supply that works with line-voltage dimming, the new fixtures deliver the same great results we're used to, without the hassle of switching to relays or running DMX everywhere.  For more information, visit www.chauvetlighting.com.
