That looks so cool Greg Happy

They are selling beautiful organic ones down the road, so bloody expensive! Around 60$ for a tall one(6ft say)!!!

I feel guilty killing something that took so long to grow so I could have it for a couple weeks. I'm no hippie but it seems a waste. We had real ones when I was a kid but after we grew up we had a fake one. When I moved out I had a real one cause I worked at a store where I could get it for $10 bucks.

If I have children I'll have a real one with a root ball. Of if we can't have one due to a cat or pollen probs I'll have a really nice fake one and spray it with pine scent.

One thing I liked about real trees is vacuuming up the needles.... they smell wonderful in the vacuum as it blows pine scented air out the end.

We got our tree! It is so pretty. It is organic, so no harmful stuff has been sprayed on it and they plant a new one for everyone they take down. I love it, it's not perfect like other trees, but I think it looks great Happy
