I guess for now I will have to do with adoring these creations from afar. These are created by blowing out a contents of an eggshell by drilling a hole at the end of the egg at each of its tips. The egg must then be dried. A variety of eggshells can be used: ostrich, emu, rhea, goose, chicken, and a variety of others. These can even be purchased dried and ready to use from some internet outlets. The usage of a Dremel (or preferably a high speed drill such as a dentist tool) . You must also use a face mask and a ventilating system to avoid getting eggshell dust up into your respiratory system which can make you very ill. The stands that they use are just as intricately created by making something from scratch, using antique candle holders, and other unique holders. I have only tried using a Dremel but would love to get my hands on a high speed drill it would be great to create something so special.

A Funny Joke

Have you ever felt just a little too old?….. Heres a funny tale:

My name is Alice, and I want to tell you a story about me feeling way to old: I was sitting in the waiting room waiting to see the dentist. I noticed his DDS diploma on the wall which bore his full name. Suddenly, I remembered a tall, handsome, dark-haired boy with the same name that had been in my high school class some 40-ODD years ago.

I had to take a step back and think: Is this the same guy that I had a crush on way back then? Upon seeing him, However, I quickly discarded and such thought. This balding, gray haired man with deeply lined face was way too old to have been my classmate.

After he examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended Morgan Park High School which he replied to “Yes. Yes, I did. I’m a mustang!” I asked when he graduated and he answered “In 1975. Why do you ask?” I told him he was in my class and he looked real closely at me AND THEN…….

THEN, THAT UGLY, OLD, BALD, WRINKLED FACED, FAT-BUTTED, GRAY-HAIRED, DECREPIT  OLD MAN ASKED, “‘WHAT DID YOU TEACH???”
