......LHS News......
Originally sent September 6

I doubt few know - or care - BUT...the Lava Lamp is 50 years old!  Yes!  The design was created by a British inventor and former WW11 pilot Edward Craven-Walker. It was first marketed as an "exotic conversation piece" by a British company back in 1963. The lamp came to be a real icon or 'symbol' of the '60's. It has been much copied since, but original - and working- ones can still be found occasionally in antique and junk shops.
And for you with inquiring minds....the lamps are based on two liquids of slightly different density which will not mix.  The heavier liquid sinks to the bottom, but when heated by the lamp light its density decreases and it floats to the top!  Viola!~

From the eMail bag:

Someone is looking for friend Leonard Gregory.  He was married at one time to '59 classmate Jolene Narmore.  They divorced and do not know where-abouts of either.  If you have info, please share with me.  Thanks!

"I am sorry to hear of the end of The Tattler Miss Vanita Lee and writing for The Tattler are two of the very few things in my LHS experience that significantly changed my life for the better."
