Not sure why your comment was "flagged for moderation"....Lord knows when they'll get to it....luckily, I got the text in an email.

OK, so I believe I have soldered the stems together in a parallel method....(newbie here)......all of the positives & negatives are soldered together in those rows. They do light up when I put the stems on a 9v battery.

I'm still trying to wrap my old man brain around the resistor calculations. I've visited several websites, but am not 100% sure of the numbers I need to input for this particular design.

Three banks of four lights each....so the forward voltage for each bank would be 12v? I can wire these banks any way I need to at this point.

EDIT: I believe I have found a calculator that I understand. Shows I have to use two 9v batteries (clipped together) and a 240Ohm resistor.....does that sound right?
