I have carbon ACL and MCL implants in my left knee which are made out of the same stuff that holds the nose cone of the space shuttle on. I found out about the surgery from watching an episode of "Ripley's Believe It or Not"! I had to travel from my home in Texas to Cardiff, Wales to get them cuz they aren't approved in America. In fact, according to the American experts this surgery has never been successful in any of their studies. I think the real reason it isn't approved in America is IT FIXES YOU!!!
-If you like bright colors, check out my "Likes" for some dazzling eye candy. Sometimes I look through them jus cuz their beauty makes me feel good! PS-Thanks to all the folks who posted the gorgeous pics!
Where I Live:

My First Lava Lamp was:
The basic WalMart model...
My Collection Includes this many Lava Lamps:
6 goo kit lamps and 1 LavaLite lamp
My Favorite Lava Lamp is:
...the one in my dreams, that has a totally different look and lots of loooong stretchy goo.
This is a group for those who have an interest in the so-called Hunter lava lamps named after their founder, Mr John Edward Hunter who attempted a patent on his Sata-Lite model in c. 1970. Later version was called the Sparkle-Lite using glittery strands in the liquid. They came in various designs but more or less one size and with only one bottle type but numerous colour combos in both wax and sparkly strands to glitter.
having recently been fortunate enough to purchase my first ever Florence Art lamp recently I was surprised to discover there was no group dedicated to these somewhat enigmatic lamps...so here it is! Frank Chillino, feel free to contribute as you've a fantastic collection and knowledge. Anyone else out there in lava land (or should that be Glitterville?) have any pics and comments you wish to make. Please feel free!See More
