Happy vernal equinox

Happy vernal equinox!

I thought I'd celebrate with the traditional balancing of the eggs. On green. For spring. And St. Patrick's Day, on which I didn't do much that would qualify as being Irish.

Have a good weekend.

Eggs can balance on end on the vernal equinox. They can also do it any other day of the year. It just takes some patience. A scientific look at egg balancing can be found here. Photograph © 2009 James Jordan.

I can't tell you how much I love egg pictures. I don't know what it is. Great shot. I am borrowing it for my desktop background (if that is OK).

By the way, I look at your site all of the time through Google Reader, so I guess I could say that I am a long time follower, but a first time commenter...
