Hi, Shane, long time no see! Thank you for the reminder. I searched the book on amazon and eBay and found it is sold for over 100 USD :blink:

I'll keep an eye on a more affordable copy.

Plenty of affordable ones here....

Thank you, Colin, for the link. I ordered a decent one. Am looking forward to receive it. Hopefully no additional COVID19!

Akira, the patterned glowing egg is way cool!
I was wondering what would happen if you made some pinpoint holes in the shell and then fluoresced the egg. Would there be little glowing rays?

LOL, Andrea! You seem to be right!

And thank you for the inspiration. I would need a much stronger UV flashlight to induce the fluorescing "rays". But, in effect, you reminded me that I had a punch for the leather work. Next time, I will try to make a boiled egg with the neatly perforated "polka dot" shell. :smile:
