In 2000, eight patients discovered they were potential victims and sued.

A young girl took a few dissatisfied, pouting steps forward, grabbed her wrecked box and walked away. Another lesson learned. But the education was all in good fun at Harbor View Elementary School on Friday when the school had its annual Egg Drop before the Easter weekend. Students got to package their eggs for maximum protection before they were tossed by the school’s principal, Charlene Metoyer, off the roof. Students wrapped their eggs in cardboard packaging, plastic wrap, Tupperware, cotton balls and some went as far as to attach parachutes to the fragile eggs.

Young Chang People eat chicken for dinner, go to sleep, wake up the next morning and have scrambled eggs for breakfast. But they rarely connect the dots between the chicken and the egg, said Ann Raia, small animals supervisor at the Orange County Fair's livestock department. "They know the eggs come from chicken, but they never think about it," she said. The 85 chickens at the fair's Egg Laying Contest/Exhibit show passersby what really happens.

While most people reserve late weekend nights for their own fun, for those out there who want to see a different kind of show, this weekend is the last chance to see grunions getting frisky on Orange County beaches this year. Yes, the seasonal phenomena known as the “Grunion Run” says goodbye to locals by early next week until March of next year. From Saturday to Tuesday, when the night skies will be almost totally black thanks to a new moon, thousands of grunions along the California coast are expected to give their last shot at breeding on the beach sand, and everyone gets to watch.

What’s one of your favorite Easter memories — something that really summed up the holiday for you?   In 2006 a priest friend and I traveled to the Holy Land for two weeks, arriving the day before Palm Sunday. We spent that first week (Holy Week) in Jerusalem, visiting many of the holy sites, and even celebrating Mass early one morning at the tomb in which Jesus was laid. It was an awesome and moving experience. Our time in Jerusalem culminated on Easter Sunday with Mass in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.

The Omelette Parlor in Costa Mesa is one of those rare places that specialize in breakfast rather than treating it like an afterthought. It's an institution where the focus is on the first meal of the day. They boast on the front of the menu to have the best omelets in the West, and they probably are not far off with that claim. There are 18 of them, and each is made with three grade AA eggs and a variety of items in the middle. My favorite would have to be the cheddar, Swiss and mozzarella cheeses blended with chopped bacon or diced ham. If you ask really nicely, you can get some fresh basil, or grilled onions and tomatoes thrown in as well.

Growing up, many of us were told by our parents and our teachers that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The emphasis of a good, hot breakfast could not be overly stressed, and many of us began our day with eggs, bacon or sausage, toast, and fruit or fruit juice -- fuel for the upcoming day ahead. As we grew older, eating habits slowly begin to change; a box of Fruit Loops along with Saturday morning cartoons replaced eggs and bacon, sugar now being the primary energy source.

A thin line of green tape and some self control was the only thing holding back the stampede. The racers were primed, leaning as far forward as they could without falling or bracing their feet to get the best start. Candy was on the line. After a five-second countdown blared through the loudspeakers, the furious footrace started. Parents chased behind as a blur of elbows, baskets and little feet that stormed a football filed-sized lawn at Mariners Church in Irvine the Saturday afternoon before Easter.

It never seemed right, sliding those egg yolks down the disposal. In the back of my mind, I knew it was wrong. Still, what with the American Heart Assn. saying yolks were full of cholesterol and our family's heart history, I acted against my instincts. I grew up on egg yolks. My mom prepared a soft-boiled egg for me every single school day along with perfectly toasted bread and a glass of O.J. To my consternation, I ate in front of Tanya Terry, a sixth-grade classmate who insisted upon picking me up for school, intruding on my breakfast and studying my every forkful.

Q: My wife and I had a discussion last night concerning the different time periods we actually celebrate Easter. Sometimes, Easter is in mid-April, and sometimes in early March. We celebrate the birth of Christ on Dec. 25 every year, yet there's no definitive date to celebrate His death and resurrection. Is this because history has never been able to pinpoint exact dates for these important events in our religious and faith history? I think most Christians would prefer to celebrate both events on specific dates.

The lovable dive known as the Little Knight left its spot on 17th Street in August, and the Wild Goose Tavern has swooped in. Reporter Jill Cowan and I stopped by for media night Nov. 8. Not just a bar, the tavern boasts a menu of gourmet sausages, burgers and interesting sides, such as sweet potato tater tots topped with goat cheese - which were delicious. The charm that made the spot a favorite watering hole for years hasn't left. The plasma TVs and the bar stayed put, but the bar itself has been updated with hammered copper, and there's a back bar made of wood from a Tennessee barn.
