      Candles. Be very careful with candles for your own safety. Do not leave candles burning unattended or near curtains. Turn off lava lamps - there is usually a recommended maximum time to leave them on. The last major student house fire in Bristol was caused by a lava lamp.

                    my daughters Lava Lamp is on a timer that comes on in the morning and later in the evening for a few hours, the timer keeps it from being on 24/7 yet it is on when she is around to see/enjoy it.

                        It is not perfect in any way. It did grab my attention though and got the message across (the importance of having all the medical information in a hospital in one place (database). The design concept...

                        You're right. I liked the design concept itself (how it grabbed my attention). I know getting attention is just a start but that much it did.

                        Awesome is whether or not the ads get the result the ads are intended to achieve. What might be awesome for one purpose could easily miss the mark for the next. The aesthetic part of the design, which...
