Stale eggs smell bad and should not be eaten. You can test an egg to see if it's stale without cracking it by using a bowl of water. A stale egg will float in a bowl of water and a fresh egg will sink. This is because as an egg gets older the air sac gets bigger as water is lost from the egg and the extra air in the egg makes it float

So I took this little egg up to the counter to make my purchase, small talked with the lady at the counter, and suggested they put it by their Easter stuff. I came home and immediately got crackin'....
I plan to post a picture of my growing egg everyday! So stay tuned!

I spoke to an old friend for a bit after that. At some point in our conversation Macaroni Grill came up. After I finished my call, I knew what was for lunch. They have the BEST bread, I ate one on the on the way home and the other when I got home.
Just as I was about to dig into my spaghetti, I saw that 3 more caches were published. Knowing I didn't have enough time to get two of the three, I stuck my food in the fridge and ran out to get the one super close to my house. Another FTF for me! What an amazing day.
I came home, logged, got ready for work and then left.
When I came home I noticed that the two other ones still hadn't been logged. I decided to risk it and go out and try for two more FTFs. From a distance I saw some one walk into the bushes about where the cache was. When I got closer another one walked that way - I was close enough to say something. I asked if they found it. They did not... we looked... and I spotted it! So we went in for a Co-FTF. I don't exactly know those "rules", but I'm not going to hog all the fun!
This was the first time I ran into fellow cachers while hunting! They were super nice and we chit-chatted a lot. They both hadn't found a cache I had placed not to far away - so I got to watch them look for it. I didn't say anything, but It was an easy find for them ;-) While we walked an talked I found out one of them had found the next one I was going to look for. I'm bummed I didn't get the FTF on it, but again glad I didn't hog all the fun! I went and found it with the other cacher that hadn't found it either.
The sun was setting, but since all the ones I found were micros, I was not able to get rid of my TC. I rushed to another cache I hadn't found and picked up to TB's and dropped my TC.
Now I'm going to go eat my lunch for dinner!
Sorry about the crappy cellphone pic.... but what a day!

I wish I had those pics and X-rays to show you! Since I don't I went browsing online for some pictures that look close to what is going on inside my mouth. Again, this is NOT my mouth. If you google wisdom teeth, you can see some wild wisdom teeth, it seems like they come in however the h3ll they want to! Lucky for me, mine are fairly straight!

The idea of The Picture MeMe... is to answer the questions with pictures found on the internet. I used Google's Image Search.

This is a not necessarily in order video either. I picked up one travel coin today, and left a bunch of swag at each place I could. I also left a CD of a PodCacher Episode in my last cache of the day. On one of their more recent Episodes they said that some people leave CDs of their episodes to get the word out... so I thought I'd help. I'm new to the program, but I really think others might enjoy it! I also think it would be neat to have if you had a long day of caching planned, or wanted something to pop in the CD player during a long trip.... let's just hope it survives the heat ;-)
Sorry about the crappy quality - maybe a video camera will be my next investment!

Her birthday is on the 18th, so this is her present! I've already told her she is getting it, so this post shouldn't surprise her!

My little trip to the library was my second here in AZ. I'm not much of a library person, becuase I love to abuse my books by bending covers and folding down corners to mark my place. I also am really bad about getting things back on time.
The library is brand spankin' new and has a neat little sculpture/art thinggy in the front outside...

A multi-cache ("multiple") involves two or more locations, the final location being a physical container. There are many variations, but most multi-caches have a hint to find the second cache, and the second cache has hints to the third, and so on. An offset cache (where you go to a location and get hints to the actual cache) is considered a multi-cache._____________________________________
I decided to get a few short multiple caches in today. They weren't too hard in the mental and physical department, which I appreciated today. My brain is fried and my body hurts.
Here are a few snap shots from today, in no particular order...
I did what one manages to do while geocaching - I discovered an unknown location near to home! This is a Frisbee golf course. It's something I've always wanted to try, but never have. Now that I know this course is so close I might give it a go some day!

THIS POST CONTAINS TUCSON AREA
CACHES, NAMES, LOCATIONS,
* * * * * * * * *
I woke up in SO much pain this morning. So much that I felt like crying after going for my ringing phone 3 feet away from the end of the bed. No joke. I am having major issues going from the standing position to the siting position - and well - just walking. You see, I signed up with a personal trainer a while ago and just started getting back into it these past few weeks, - and yesterday I think she was trying to kill me. I have never done so many lunges in my life. I feel like an old lady hobbling around the house.
Despite the pain, I was determine to get my 100th in today. (Lisa you owe me a Travel Bug - I WON).I had planned this (GC1MVVQ) for my 100th, but with the terrain - I knew I wasn't going to make it even half way there... So I opted for some easier but interesting ones...
GC179H4 - Would a Tree Stump You
This cache gave parking coordinates. I'm glad too, because I wouldn't have known where to go! The "curb" was about two feet high. I should have taken a picture of it...
Anyway I saw the cache about 70 ft. away. Though it was an easy cache, I really appreciate that someone took the time out to make this cache. I love the neat ones!
There was even a fancy plaque on it.
The only negative to this cache was the desert casualty I spotted when I removed the container...
There wasn't much for taking, so I just signed the log and left some goodies for the next person.
GC1N03 - We Are the Champions
I picked this one because I thought the name was perfect for my 100th find and victory!
It was... uhh.. interesting. I'm not sure if it was supposed to look like a pile of rocks or a steaming pile of cow crap. Either way, I found it and I'm counting it!
This is me with my 100th. Pardon the grunge look - I decided to shower after getting dirty caching.
I got the cap off and signed the log! I took a little heart shaped key chain and left one of my monkies.
Here is the bottom, in case you were wondering how it was made. Its that foamy stuff I don't know the name for!

You Will Need
*A Picture -Black and white. I like to find clip art of some sort. Clip art type pictures are usually pretty solid with clean lines which make it easier to work with.
*A Craft Knife (A good sharp one! Change the blade if you need to.)
*Paint Brushes ( I use the spongy ones)
Let the shirt dry and then slowly and carefully peel away the freezer paper. For small pieces or bits of paper that get left behind - pull out those tweezers!
I'm going to be adding more to my shirt (this is the back) I hope to post a finished project soon!
