Making a Hard-boiled Egg -- A Challenge

By Raymond S. Usbal

"This isn't a hard-boiled egg!" my wife complained.

"Not too loud, Sweety. Your mama might hear us," I answered back quietly.

Like every man of the house, I do the cooking once in a while. This is now my second attempt so I'm puzzled (mind you I'm a Certified House Chef) and disappointed why I can't even cook a dumb egg. My eggs are cracked with some of the white out into the water. After removing the shells, I ended up having scrambled eggs with no dignity!

Resigned! Don't laugh at me, I bet you can't do a better job either.

Consistent dedication over a considerable period of time is a must if you are to succeed in any project worth pursuing.

Consistent attendance on a course over four years earns you a degree. Consistent sowing of corn earns you sackfuls of corn after four months. Consistent display of affection towards an unmarried lady for a period of one hour to five years (depending on your target) earns you a wife. Consistent nutrition of an embryo on a woman's womb earns you a baby after nine months of waiting.

How foolish am I to think that I can have my hard-boiled egg immediately!

For aspiring chefs, maintain a consistent 100 degrees C on the egg for 23.10 minutes to make a hard-boiled egg. And don't forget to put some water! (I wish my thermometer and watch are not broken.)

Do you want to be a success?

Be consistent in your work and patient enough to wait. Your effort will be richly rewarded in due time.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
