I bet you didn't know this...but I invented the pre-lit Christmas tree. I had that idea back in the 70's. I told it to my future father in law...and he loved it. we even discussed the logistics of the thing...and sighed about it over a coke. It was going to have the stem as a long green plug in stick, and the branches each ended with plug-teeth. Years later he calls... "McKenna! Someone stole your invention! did you see? Christmas tree that has all the bulbs on the branches already and you plug it in!" *Grumble! Grumble!* **** I was at the teacher store, and I had ideas for a few things I needed...and I find that they haven't been produced yet. WHY OH WHY don't I make these things myself! *** Have you had these moments as well?
