his boiled egg on Easter Sunday before attending church at St Mary's, Portchester, Hampshire, England. These photographs remind him of those
times. Perhaps you could copy one for your breakfast.

Peter Carl Fabergé original name Carl Gustavovich Fabergé [1846 - 1920]
was a Russian jeweller, best known for the famous Fabergé eggs, made in the
style of genuine Easter eggs, but using precious metals and gemstones rather
than more mundane materials, each egg is about 5 inches tall and depicts a
different event or theme in Russia's history.
He was commissioned to create
the first egg for the twentieth wedding anniversary of Tsar Alexander III
and his wife Maria Feodorovna, of Russia, in 1885. Every subsequent Easter,
another egg was made for Maria as a gift from her husband. After the passing
of Alexander III, his son took up the tradition presenting his wife and his
mother with their own custom Fabergé egg every Easter. In all, 50 eggs were
commissioned; to this day eight are still missing.
This is the
Coronation Egg, which features the coach that Empress Alexandra rode into
Moscow in 1897.

The Belgian chocolate producer Guylian made this chocolate egg with at
least 50,000 bars [amounting to some 1950 kg of chocolate in total] on
behalf of the city of St. Niklaas, Belgium. The egg measured 8.32 metres
high. Apparently twenty-six craftsman worked altogether 525 hours to build

conditions, Will and Guy suspect that it is unlikely to taste very good.

Pet owners beware. You should protect your dogs from the perils of
eating chocolate eggs in the run-up to Easter.
Take note of a Patterdale terrier named Polly who scoffed 20 chocolate
cakes and cheated death only because her owner realised the mortal danger.
Yvonne Taylor saw her pet dog tucking into the plate of cupcakes, which had
been left to cool in the kitchen of her home in Southampton.
The problem is that dogs are not designed to digest theobromine, which is
found in chocolate.
"I remembered reading that cocoa could be poisonous to pets, and having
used quite a lot in the cakes, I was very worried." Said Yvonne.
Dogs and indeed cats enjoy the taste of chocolate and will eat it if they
can get hold of it. The problem is that Easter there are large
quantities of chocolate hanging around and your pet may be tempted to eat
more than is good for them.
Here, at Marwell Zoo, near Winchester, Hampshire, England we see a lemur
who has his own 'paper-mâché' egg for Easter.
You will be delighted to learn that it contains tasty treats of banana,
grapes, crickets and grubs.
Here we have a photo, taken by Jens Meyer, of Volker Kraft decorating a tree
with 9,200 Easter eggs in his garden in the ancient town of Saalfeld in
Germany. Will and Guy can tell you that the Kraft family have decorated
their tree with Easter eggs for over 40 years.

'Now spell "straw," as in "strawberry".'
Rhoda demands brusquely, 'spell "stink," as in chocolate.'

Chocolate caused a more intense and longer lasting buzz than kissing, and
doubled heart rates.
