Life 101 – Happy Spring!

Ahhh, the first day of spring. The day the sun sits directly above the equator on its march northward. Have you ever heard that you can balance a raw egg on end on the first day of spring because somehow the pull of gravity is more equal? Well, it’s baloney. And I’ve got egg on my floor to prove it. Apparently, the egg legend started in 1945 when a Life Magazine reporter wrote a story about a Chinese ritual in which people stood eggs on end on the first day of spring. If you’re talented enough to stand an egg on end on the first day of spring, you can do it every other day of the year too. Here’s to new beginnings and endless possibilities!
