Check out this great video of Van, Bonnie & Jeff Angelo doing the "Crack An Egg For Hunger" Challenge! Today is World Egg Day and the Iowa Egg Council is challenging all of you to do the "Crack An Egg For Hunger" Challenge! Here's how it works. Take a carton of eggs, hard-boil 8 of them and leave 4 raw. You need to have two participants appear in each video. Each participant randomly chooses an egg and smashes it on their forehead or top of their head. Proceed until a raw egg is cracked. Post a video of the contest to your social media and tag with #CrackAnEgg and #IowaEgg and the Iowa Egg Council will donate a dozen of eggs for each video to the Iowa Food Bank. Participants are also asked to give a donation to the Iowa Food Bank. And don't forget to put a "challenge" to your friends or co-workers on the end of your video! We challenged the TV-13 morning staff including Jeriann Ritter.
Mark Allen stayed up last night to see the end of his Chicago Cubs baseball game and he apologized ahead of time for all day...that he might be grumpy. This conversation did not end anywhere near it started....check it out!!!
