  4. OMG I must have that scale! it is awesome. Oh, and the egg rocks as well.[​IMG]
     
  5. E-Bay! i saw someone else on this site had one so i had to get one. They are very accurate. My elder sister remembers my grandmother had one similar.

    And, that egg feels like a rock!

    Have you cracked it yet? Is it a double or triple? I get 2-3 doubles a week. Yesterday, I put a sawing tape mesure around it and it was 6 inches round. It made me hurt thinking about it.[​IMG]
