Happy Spring!

Some say it can't be done. Some say it can happen any day. Some say it's a fluke.

I say it rocks and everyone should try it at home...

Tonight at 8:07pm is the vernal (spring) equinox. On this hour and in the hours surrounding it, an egg will balance on its fat end all by itself.

I'd never tried this, but a friend reminded me of it tonight and said he'd had success with several eggs during the autumnal equinox. I couldn't resist...

As you can see here, it actually works! It takes a little patience, a steady hand, and a good flat surface, but you too can make an egg stand on end.

Try it and if it works for you, send me a picture -- I'll post it on the blog!

Happy Spring!

What in the world?? How about the Humpty Dumpty's sold at Greenjeans? Would they stand?
