      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.

                        You appear to be serious, so I'll give you my take on part of what you've written. The chances of making a "decent income" on sites, like the one you mentioned, are all but non-existent. The...

                        Clients can be flakey for all kinds of reasons. Dealing with it is just part of the job.

                        You're just working on some video materials, right? The team, despite its name, already uses blue, correct? As I understand it, you're not choosing their team color or redesigning their already-blue uniforms...
