Profile Information

Something Interesting About Me:
Live and Love in the Valley on the banks of the Shenandoah River VA USA.
Where I Live:
Virginia, USA
My First Lava Lamp was:
I fell in love with lava at a friend's house in 1967, I was 15. My friend had just gotten a lamp for her birthday. It was a sleepover. I stayed up all night watching the lamp.
I never got one but never forgot.

2008 I decided it was time to get myself a lava lamp. I got a midnight clear/red. I was hooked.

Now I have a bunch and want more. The plan is to house the midnights in black bookcases for A Moving Wall of Color.

I'm setting the lamps up then heating them until they spike and turning them off. I can easily move the globes without causing cloudiness and have an easy to see palette of colors to consider when positioning the lamps… Continue

My in-laws moved to Williamsburg a few years ago and I've been able to visit each summer. It is so beautiful there. I love all the water and trees - two things we don't have a lot of here in the desert.

Good luck at the voting booth. I took care of that about 2 weeks ago! Tonight, I think I'll enjoy a bottle a beer on the couch with the clicker. At least, I hope I enjoy it!
